So Far So Good

I think I am better except for a little cough and a blocked ear. My body feels strong and awake again, finally! I have been eating ETL and have been doing pretty well. I made an African Peanut Stew on Friday which I was not crazy about at all. Sunday night I made pesto sauce with brown rice pasta, that was very good. Monday night I made a green Thai curry from scratch, it took me two hours to make it, I toasted and ground all of my own seeds, soaked my own chilies and it took forever. It was pretty good but a bit to spicy for me. The coconut milk really helped calm the spice down. Also I have been eating salads with beans and nuts for lunches. I made the best dressing today from garden veggie juice, basil, oregano, pepper, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, onion powder, this dressing was the best I have ever made. The juice I used is store bought and from concentrate, but I think it is okay if I am just using it as a dressing. Yes it has a bit of salt in it, but I am not done with salt just yet. I was thinking I could also use tomato puree or use tomato paste and water if I did not want to use juice concentrate.

Tonight I am making a Tuscan bean bake with polenta and steamed spinach with garlic. I am really looking forward to this, I am crazy for cannelini beans. If it comes out good I will leave the recipe tomorrow. You never know these days what will come out good, it seems it is 50/50 lately.

Also just so I can keep track my breakfasts have been soaked oatmeal with pecans or walnuts, bananas, frozen blueberries, and rice/soy milk unsweetened. This is really good. Also I have been really into apples lately, they really fill you up and the macs taste so good.
