21DSD – Day 2 + Pesto Balsamic Dressing – WOW!!

OMG, 10:32am and I was crashing.  Yawning so big tears were pouring down my face.  My back was also aching so I want to lie down for 20mins….  felt better after the coconut and tea kicked in.

What I ate today:

8am – handful of Macadamia nuts while driving daughter to school

9am – 2 Eggs over Easy and 1/2 a small Avocado with Chili Garlic Sea Salt

10:30am – 2 Spoons of coconut butter/oil

11am – My Bengal tea  with Raw Milk – same tea from day 1 – I’m addicted and have it every day!

12 – Lunch out with a friend.  Lebanese chicken with salad/veg.  I examined the menu, talked to the server and got all grains removed (it was supposed to be a Sharwarma Sandwich) and then ate the Hummus without even thinking.  By the time I got in the car and my intestines were screaming and stinking I realized!

4:30pm – Driving Kids around – small handful of Macadamia nuts and big handful of coconut flakes

7pm – Leftover Turkey + Gravy + Greens with Roasted Veg and Pesto Balsamic Dressing – WOW, so good.  I had forgotten how delish the simple classic dressings are!  Interesting note… back in ‘the day’ I’d make my dressings with so little oil (cause you know, oil is fattening, lol) that they’d make my mouth pucker.  My dressings are SOOO much better now that I’m over that!

Pesto Balsamic Dressing – shake or whisk ingredients.  try not to drink it alone!

  • 1/4 cup Well aged Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/2 small shallot minced (about 2 tbsp)
  • 2 tsp Epicure’s Pesto Mix – (or a bunch of dried basil/garlic)
  • 2 tsp Grainy Dijon

10:11pm.  Off to Bed!  Bed is aching so badly, prescription strength painkillers not touching it today.  Can’ t wait to see Chiro tomorrow!
