I skipped writing yesterday. I was getting a whole bunch of cooking done, laundry, took the toddler outside, etc.
No BM yesterday and I didn’t get a chance to do an enema. If there is no BM today, I’ll do one tonight.
I did raw fruit over the weekend: peaches, kiwi, strawberries. It went well. I’m trying cherries tonight. The carrot muffins were yummy!! I ate one slathered with butter. Hmmm…
I crockpotted a rump roast with bone and it made the most amazing broth!! It was all jelly. I strained it from the beef and cooked it some more with vegetables. DH remarked how awesome the beef was (the only spices I added were salt, peppercorns and allspice – surely a testament to the beef itself!!) and he loved the broth, too. Toddler is finally eating and I’m adding more fat to his food. He actually ate butter of a spoon!!
I’m not sure if I should still call this ‘intro’. I guess I’m not eating anything off intro though I’m dying to introduce cocoa back. I may leave it for this week and then go back to full GAPS next week. Slowly, of course. I’m still looking to limit fruit, honey and baked goods.
I made a batch of kimchi last night – it looks beautiful!! I took pictures and I’m hoping to post once I get home tonight. I need a better camera!! I used Napa cabbage, bok choy, radish greens (first for me but I found this in a kimchi manual I printed years ago), carrot, daikon, garlic, ginger, salt, dill (again – same manual), sesame seeds and mild ground red pepper (actually tasted pretty spicy but mellows out in the brine). I poured some mixed Bubbie’s/homemade pickle brine in my small jar and left the big jar with just salt. I can’t wait to try it!!
Finished the sausage/veggies and soup. Have some SK left. Can’t wait for cherries!!
BM!!! Woo hoo!! Pretty normal size, I think. There was a lot of ‘activity’ going on in my lower stomach.. I wonder if that was sign to ‘go’?? I may still do an enema tonight to ‘clean out’ but it feels good to just ‘go’.
Here is my beautiful kimchi:
I set it up last night. You see how much space there is to the top of the jar. Tonight it was full of liquid!! I took several tablespoons out and put it in my smaller jar. It is definitely alive – there are soo many bubbles. I can’t wait to taste!! No enema tonight. I’m off to bed.
B: scrambled eggs with ghee and butter, sausage
L: borscht with beef pate, zucchini and squash in lard, sausage, 1/2 avocado with EVOO, handful of cherries, SK, PB/AB/butter
