Hello! I may have forgotten that Tuesday and Wednesday were 12 hour workdays due to Parent/Teacher conferences. Luckily, I did remember a few weeks ago to ask my neighbor (and Frankie) to hang out with Remy the last two days, so at least one of us didn't suffer. With that said, TODAY was a my first no commitment day since the end of September.
Happily, I have been snapping pictures the last few days to show you what I've been eating on this whole food cleanse.
Everyday this week I have had the same lunch: collard greens, shallots, and marinated tempeh over TJ's Harvest Grain blend (Israeli couscous, garbanzo beans, red quinoa).
Monday I ate this deliciousness after my Vega (mixed only with water - I've been starting my day with that and a psyllium husk drink.)
She would prefer that I don't eat russet potatoes, but I had a bag in my fridge, and wanted to not be wasteful. After the one I have left - it'll be sweet potatoes. (Everyday Happy Herbivore Mushroom Gravy smothering the steamed spinach and carrots, baked potato.)
I'm also taking B Complex, and adding Bragg's Amino Acids to my savory meals. I'm still trying to figure out my snacks, but she has been great checking in on me everyday.
THE MOST IMPORTANT SENTENCE OF THIS POST:
My grandfather has decided to have the surgery, to remove the brain tumor.
*I cried. I'm happy. I'm relieved he's willing to not give up on this life.*
