Well I'm back on track after two days of going off the rails - eating everything and anything that I shouldn't have. I weighed myself after my 2 days of binging and I have lost half a pound......go figure that one out!!!

I've been reading about the anti-inflamatory benefits of ginger and so will make a green smoothie today containing lots of fresh ginger. I'll let you Know what it tastes like. Hopefully healthy eating will assist in my back's recovery.

Happy, healthy eating everyone.

On the lighter side of things (excuse the pun lol) For anyone that has "A pound" or two to lose...

Only One Pound

Hello, do you know me?

If you don't, you should. I'm a pound of fat,

And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.

Want to know why?

It's because no one ever wants to lose me;

I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!

Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.

So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.

Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it.

That is, until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.

Yes, it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.

So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound."

(As if that were such a terrible thing.)

For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.

And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.

Happy Days!!!

After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!

^^^ Good one, Maiden!

And what the hell is Bisto on kitkats and oxo on hobnobs??? Crazy English!

Dragon..fresh ginger in green smoothies is the bomb! I love it. It gives the drink a nice little ZING!

One of my yoga friends suggested I take a natural herbal supplement for inflammation. I've been having some serious wrist and hand pain lately, so she said to check out 'Boswellia', which has been getting really good reviews from people suffering from arthritis. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

Just did a search for Boswellia and found a recipe for

SUPER DE-INFLAMING SHAKE

- 1 cup of organic coconut milk
- 1 cup of blueberries
- 1 - 2 scoops of non denatured, grass fed whey protein
- 1 tablespoon of ground flax or chia
- 1 tbps tumeric
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp Boswellia
- 1 tbsp Ashwagandha

Certainly sounds interesting!

I've had a migraine today, so been quiet. Reading up and have to post.
Biscuits in US are a small savory bread, heavier than a roll. We put butter, jam, on them, etc.
Gravy is a savory thick sauce made with meat drippings. Mine is with sausage, flour, milk.

Split the biscuit on a plate. Spoon gravy all over it. Cover it with black pepper. Eat it. Slap your mama.

Sorry, LDT. So, you'll have to have biscuits and gravy soon. So will I now.
It had to be done.

Big hugs to everyone!

Also, grits. These are made from corn. I don't know how, I don't care how. They are dried and we add water and salt and make them into a mush, like oatmeal or cream of wheat. Similar to polenta I believe.
Then we add flavor. Butter, cheese, etc. They can be breakfast, lunch or dinner. Served as a side dish, like rice. You should try some. We'll make them with the above foods. On a cheat day, of course!!!!

I don't like grits but they are certainly more appetising than what I have just had for lunch!!

A soothie consisting of ground flaxseed, spinach, cucumber and red bell pepper with fresh ginger.

DISGUSTING!

I don't eat biscuits or gravy, but think Joy or LDT could get me to drive down south if they'd cook it for me. Those grits...hhhmmmmmmm...yummy! Amazing. I need an honest, old fashioned southern meal, and I need it soon. Ohhhh...notice how a Yank can be nice, and admit they are jealous of some southern things. They call that northern chivalry, and us yankee gents are famous for it. Oh, and our pizza is way better than yours!

Congrats on the success Jeni! I think you have discovered one of the secrets some people never know...healthy eating doesn't have to be bland, boring or taste horrible.

So, I fasted for 19 hours. I know, I know...probably not ideal. Or maybe it is...I don't know. I enjoy skipping breakfast and then just eat really late and before I know it its been 19 hours. Overall, I like the feeling. My thing though, is that IF I was going to intentionally continue this, I need to make sure I eat a lot of food during the times I do eat. Right now I'm probably not eating enough.

I broke the fast with a huge azz salad. Just finished off a bowl of raw ice cream with banana, pineapple, cherries, pears, blueberries, coconut milk, almond butter and a dab of vanilla.

oh, no dragon! Sounds like it might have been better as a salad? At least you didn't put beets in it. I hear they are harsh!

You def have the best pizza! I use to visit my aunt and uncle in St Louis and they made deep dish pizzas in a homemade pizza grill. In their backyard there was a hole dug, grill racks put it. Fire made. Pizza in big pans put it. Cover the whole thing with something, I don't remember. I do remember going to the farmer's market first, and I remember eating the best pizza in the world. This was in the 1970s, they were cool hippies. They are still cool hippies.

Eating disorder

Hello All,

I am Kevin from London UK.

I have a few years of sobriety but food intake has gone out of control. I have attended all the recovery groups and now the medics are sending me on a specialist programme. I hope to start this in the next week or two. Please pray for me.

Your prayers will underpin my efforts to engage with the proces.

God bLess,


Kevin

Thanks for the photos joygirl-the biscuits/gravy looks yummy

crabcakes sound fabulous LDT

Jeni- your menu sounds great.course you can keep it up. once you get into the habit of cooking from fresh you'll never go back. Our menus have deterioratedsince we moved and have limited kitchen facilities-I'd rarely have used jarred sauces or frozen food but been using them very often recently. Starting the new kitchen today Hope you have a good day back at work

great news on the weight loss dragon

hope your supplement works LDT

welcome Kevin -hope you get some good menu ideas on here

ghostly-I don't know much about fasting but does your body not start to use its fat reserves if it is starved? I can relateto the breakfast thing though,If I miss breakfast I don't eat till much later and if I have a big breakfast I'm hungry all day

Eaten badly last few days as busy,out and about, pickingup snacks,not preparing proper meals. Still feeling rotten too.Today I will be healthy

BF-fruit and yoghurt
lunch-omelette and salad
Tea-steak and roasted veg

happy healthy eating everyone

Ahhhhhhhh. Just had a midnight snack. One pound of bacon. Half of it covered in cheese. I avoid cheese, but on occasion will allow it.

So, during the eating phase of my fast had a huge salad...so much on it cannot write it all, but tons of veggies, tons of chicken and eggs for protein, then there was a pre-made greek salad with sausage, olives, eggplant, peppers and other things and I mixed it in with mine, plus some sweet potato (yam to you proper southerners) with cranberries in an olive oil / dijon mustard mix...so that was my salad and it was topped with vinegar and EVOO. This broke my 19 hour fast.

Then the raw ice cream.

Then the bacon and cheese.

Plus some almonds.

Now...maybe fast another 18-19 hours if I go to the gym after work (fasted). Guess I'll have to wait and see.

I do think that was enough food though during my eating phase.

If you enjoy fasting Ghostly, you might enjoy the 5/2 Diet. That is 2 days a week you fast and for the other 5 days you eat normally. It has been found to lower cholesterol, blood pressure and heaps of other health benefits as well as weight loss. Dr Mosley has written a book on the subject and you can see a BBC documentary about it on YouTube.
