Foodie Friday & Almond Milk Tutorial

Yay, getting this done on Friday – which is amazing really because I only have a small amount of free time today.

So how did the week go with my elimination diet? So far it’s been good. Still no improvement in pain levels (they are actually worse right now) but my appetite is greatly reduced and I have now lost 4kg (8.8lbs). I am going to add in some things like tamari and eggs, and stay away from sugar, gluten, processed soy & corn (as much as possible). I’m just taking things day by day. Mostly it’s easy but I am getting a bit bored of basically the same thing every day, and having to make seperate meals.

This weeks groceries involved LOTS of fruit and veg…

Most of the groceries were for the rest of family though I did get a few frozen Syndian products – I used to have these before and quite liked them.

So what did I eat this week? Pretty much the same as last week.

Breakfast was a green smoothie….sometimes made to go…

Lunch with a salad with hummus and either falafels (gluten free) or veggie bites…

Dinner was quinoa or brown rice with some type of bean or lentil topping.

This was quinoa with a lentil bolognase sauce….

and a healthy version on nachos….

Not quite the same as what everyone else had….

The definite stand-out meal this week was at the Nan Tien Temple.

Tonight I have a date with the Boss and I’ve packed a salad to take with me. Trying to hang in there as long as I can.

I’ve been making lots of almond milk (usually every second day) and had a request to film a video. If you like almond milk you really must make your own. It’s super easy, super fast and super yummy.

    I am really enjoying your food posts and would love to know what you put in your salads, they look so delicious. I am interested in trying out the sundian products, are they from Coles?

    Great video, You look so confident! We definately need to see more videos like this! Almonds can be quit pricey in UK, but I would love to try o make my own. We normally buy Alpro or Almond breeze.
