Trathlynne,
Stunning, I live in the tropics. I really need to experience some cold weather for a while.
Is the sky really that blue?
Mecanix glad you are back.
Yesterday I ate a baguette which is a no no. I was a bit bored at the restaurant so I had 3 serves of raw ice cream, 2 serves of mango and 1 serve of chocolate and banana.
in the mango I cut up mango I had dried in the dehydrator and with our coconut milk/cream
This beats any commercial ice cream hands down.
On my wish list I want a kilo of vanilla bean pods. Real vanilla added to my desserts and ice creams!!!!
Jams I love the idea of the old records and the hula hoop, how jolly.
I listened to Harry Belafonte singing Coconut Woman full pelt yesterday. I want to put together a complimation of songs with the word coconut in them.
I am glad people are mentioning exercise, I need to up the ante.
Everyone have a great day

LDT yes to stay sober is out primary purpose and healthy bodies will encourage that.

Love
caiHong

bloss....., CaiHong changed my life by introducing me to raw ice cream. My DH and I love it, make it several times a week, and can't imagine eating commercial ice cream again.

And CaiHong... I also live in what amounts to a tropical climate. I love it, but also enjoy going to the mountains for a change. I tend to want to eat a lot more carbs in colder climates.

Today's lunch was stir fry . Tonight's dinner is a chicken cooked in the slow cooker, with lots of veggies on the side. Tonight's dessert.... Do I really need to say it?

Another day, another hike. Just over an hour this time, but half of it was up a nice steep hill.

Got home, cooked up some cod and made a couple sandwiches. Oops. Should have just made enough for one. My nutritionist is going to kill me for all of those extra carbs! And kill me again for having those carbs instead of veggies.

Oh well. I've definitely burned more than I've taken in today. I'll live. lol

Sigh. I ate relatively well this weekend and then BAM back to work with the kiddos and all their sugary, fattening snacks. Unfortunately I was housebound as someone was over to repair the roof. Forgot my lunch bag which didn't help either. Pants.

Note to Ghostly (and anyone else ) I was just sent a website by a friend that you might be interested in. I'm not entirely clear on the rules of posting websites here, but here goes...

It's : paleophysiciansnetwork.com/doctors .... I'm going to do a little more research on it, but at first look, it's interesting.

Have made Madhur jaffreys lemon chicken and coriander for tomorow .. seem to have muddled up my spice amounts and rather than being a mildly spicy heat , it's a full on steam coming out of my ears one ! Still quite yummy

Mecanix, We Louisianians love heat and spice in our food, too....so much so that we pack it in our baggage when we travel. We do that with our coffee, too. ( weird lot, we are).

Yesterday I cooked ducks in the slow cooker. I made a marinade out of a papaya, red bell pepper, jalapeņo, basil from my garden and a dash of raw honey. The good news is the marinade was really good and I will make it again. The bad news is the ducks tasted bitter. My DH, the hunter, said " the cabbage you put in with the ducks made them taste bitter". I said " No it didn't....you just shot bitter ducks." Where I live, to mess up the game hunters bring home is practically criminal. . No worries though, friends. I was given a pardon, and we just ate raw ice cream for dinner.

Today I am playing it safe and cooking sausages and peppers for dinner. Breakfast is the rest of the papaya. Anyone else love that fruit?

I have an adult student that I turned onto Paleo eating. She is a complete convert now. She was to meet me at a concert recently and she told me that I would have to look hard for her because she has lost so much weight I wouldn't recognize her

Eat well today, friends!

Hello Healthy Eaters, still doing good here I have been keeping busy and getting lots of exercise around the house. I have been eating a small apple everyday in my salad (I eat salad Mon-Fri.) because I read apples are good for your cholesterol so I cut it up and put it in my salad makes a nice crunch in your salad. LDT you sound like such a great cook! I really don't cook well but I do have my few things I cook up that are healthy...Well gang hope you have a nice evening..Chow

I love papaya, it seems not many people do. have you tried making green papaya salad it's spicy. green papaya is excellent for digestion. Raw papaya ice cream is fantastic, let the papaya get very ripe before freezing.

I had 2 people in for lunch yesterday, they are going to write an article about the restaurant in the quarterly tourist magazine.
I have had 2 people enquire about the 30 day diet and delivery.

One of my customers gave me a bunch of bananas from her tree and a yellow passionfruit.
Do they grow it where you are LDT? it has the most remarkable flavours.

Mecanix good idea to not eat refined carbs and perhaps introduce more green salads. have you tried green smoothies?

Triathlynne, why do you have to eat what the kids eat? are you a teacher? This could be a good opportunity to introduce them to healthier foods.

That reminds me I am going to make fruit leathers this week in the dehydrator.

Gosh it's Thursday already.

Have a great day everyone

love

Hi Heaters!

I made Paleo peppers and sausages tonight and it was really good. It made up for my last night's goof.

Cai, we can get passion fruit here sometimes, but I don't know of anyone that actually grows it here. I will buy some the next time I see them. I froze the remaining half of my papaya and will make ice cream with it later. Do you use bananas in it as well? Thanks for that tip, because my papaya was getting very ripe.

Here's a little dessert recipe I got off the website: girlmeetspaleo

1 cantaloupe .....1 can coconut milk ( 2 cups, preferably full fat).... Zest and juice of one lime .... Cut up cantaloupe and put into food processor or blender, add the coconut milk and lime zest and juice...blend together until smooth. Pour into Popsicle molds ( I know you know what those are, gang....they were popular "back in the day", ) and freeze. This will make 24 cantaloupe Popsicles. If you have extra batch, just pour it into a bowl and freeze like ice cream. I'm buying Popsicle molds this week.

Nel, Thanks for the cooking compliment, but my DH is really the master chef of the family. And our sons are following in his footsteps. Good food and good music are huge in the culture where I live. Everything revolves around that.

Lunch today.... spinach/canadian bacon omlette

Dinner today..... stuffed bell peppers with Parmesan and Gruyere cheese ( guess I'm in a pepper mode lately ), topped with marinara sauce.

Dessert tonight....cantaloupe ice cream.

That's all I've got today, Heaters! Have a great day!

good morning Heaters,

I have been watching, "The Skinny on Obesity". Fantastic series that really explains why we are getting fatter and how we can stop this.

Also touches on addictions and the biochemical responses.

I am watching it again.

LDT we don't get cantaloupe here but there is another interesting melon I will try. LDT
I am talking about a yellow passionfruit as opposed to the purple passionfruit.
They don't have the sourness that the purple ones can have.

Have a healthy eating day

love
caiHong

Hi ya'll happy healthy Friday!
Nel, I was using a weighted hula hoop at the gym a while back and I really enjoyed it but it bruised the heck out of my sides, stomach and hips so I quit using it but it was fun, I wasn't able to keep a regular hoop going either. Last night at the gym while I was working out with weights I noticed a young woman using the weighted hoop and she just kept going and going and going and was carrying on a conversation with another woman at the same time she made it look so effortless, it was very impressive.
I'm still eating healthy and boring, not that healthy eating is boring but there are so few things that I can eat that don't upset my stomach that it gets boring. Last night was a salmon/feta/spinach burger with a side of stir fried squash and zucchini. 2nd time I've had salmon this week, had a business lunch on Monday and I had a grilled salmon salad and it was delicious! Haven't tried any new foods lately might be time for that.
Have a good weekend all and happy Mother's day to all the moms!

On day six of the Whole9 cleanse again. No legumes, grains, sugar or dairy for 30 days. I was doing it before Christmas but stopped for the holidays. Been pretty painless so far, because it feels so good! Been eating lots of proteins, veg, and nuts and dried fruit. A pretty awesome way to eat!
Will keep you guys updated!
