Weather is up and down and all over the place. Storms and hot or windy and cold, or sun and rain at the same time. It’s fun and mostly pleasant, so no complaints here.  Even the not so pleasant still tends to be pretty.

New financial year, means more hours at work. We’re reorganizing all the sections of the store to make them more shoppable and more shelvable. So, that’s loads of fun. At least we aren’t moving the sections again. Glowlights are shipping slowly, but surely. My store didn’t have a lot of reservations to go on.

Random pains the past week, but they’re never too terrible, nor too long lasting. New health food store up by work. Not sure putting it between Toys R Us and Costco is the best business plan, but ah well. Prices seem fairly decent and they carry my spelt, soba and powdered garlic. So, I’m happy. Though Ezekiel seems to have stopped shipping yeast-free bread to Columbus. Which is a bit sad.

Mother’s Day on Sunday. Happy Mother’s Day to Mom and Gale and my friends’ Moms and my friends who are Moms(that number keeps growing). Have a great weekend, you all deserve it. 🙂

Had half a zag day for the Halloween party this past weekend in Cleveland. Lots of No Bake cookies, a few drinks, some bread and then Bacon Waffles and Bacon for breakfast. Mmmm bacon!  I’m feeling better about the whole thing. I’m sticking with it for the most part, but I’m not denying myself quite so much, or guilting myself for slips. I want to be as healthy as I can, but I also want to live my life happily. A little bread with my salad is okay, even if it’s not yeast-free or spelt. Some hot cider is not great for me, but it makes my throat feel so much better. Fruit and fresh juice is far healthier than chocolate or other candy or soda. I like vegetables and my tummy likes almond butter far better than peanuts. Need to work on some soup recipes(haven’t I said this before?) with the cold weather coming on. All in all, I’m feeling better about things.

It has been a good week. Still no need for a shot, forgot my meds a couple times with no ill effects. I’m doing well and enjoying life. I was sick on Sunday, but that was either bad Salmon or stress, or too much melon, or all of the above. Who knows? I need to do better about buying produce in appropriate amounts, and then using it in a timely fashion. I only ate half the bananas before they turned disturbingly brown and I have far too much Romaine lettuce in the fridge. Also, I think I have a cucumber that has gone all soft and some tomatoes that I left too long. Time to clean out the fridge and try again. I’ve been craving peanut butter sandwiches lately. The banana/tahini/flat bread was good, but just not the same, might look into almond butter. Speaking of, need to buy almonds today, too. Found lots of yeast free bread at Raisin Rack this week, too. Men’s Bread(lots of extra seeds and some random nutrient they said men need) and Spelt.

As previous comments mention, I have now gone over three weeks without a shot. I’m feeling quite good, and should really call my doctor to see when I can get in to talk to her about my blood tests. Retail schedule making that even more difficult a problem. The apples and bananas have gone over well. Giving me a little break from simply veggies. Slicing up the bananas on whole grain flat bread with tahini over them makes an excellent, if not very alkaline snack. I need to get more yeast-free alkaline grain bread in the morning if Raisin Rack has some. Got frozen veggies, too, but have eaten them all already. The smaller cuts make prep easier, if not fresh and raw. Things are going quite well and I’m finding myself having a much happier week. Parties are still painful, with all the lovely acid lying around, but I resisted this weekend. Time to start planning Anniversary Zagging. 😉

Fighting sore throat: won. Fighting cold: winning. It’s been a week of questionable health, but still a fairly good week. A little bit whiny about how eating isn’t simple or quick anymore, well, at least the prep for said eating. But it’s still not bad, I’m getting the hang of it, getting used to it. And feeling the benefit. Zag day coming up at the end of the week, happy birthday to me. 🙂

Food of the week: Toasted yeast-free organic sprouted kamut bread with soy butter and garlic salt.

I found it! July 19, 2009

Yesterday I found yeast-free bread made only from sprouted organic kamut whole wheat, water and sea salt!!! Yay for Bread!

Also… frozen salmon from CostCo, in a big bulk bag tastes fishy and has a fishy texture. 😦 Fail.
