Remember this our plan to heal our gut. Consult your doctor before beginning any program. Adjust to your own body and needs. We have done our own research and have come to these steps to help us in our journey to heal our stomach issues. Please do your own research before starting anything new. We are not really sure how long we plan to do this program. And over time we might be changing things depending on how our bodies are doing. We plan to share just about everything as we heal, so we apologize now if some things are TMI. We want to be honest as we are using our blog as our journal.
Lori: I woke up Saturday morning craving to do some yoga! I did the same Tara Stiles yoga routine that I did a few days ago. I just love it and determined to do some of the poses.
I am not very good at yoga, but I know that is not the point. Yoga is about re-connecting with your mind and breathe. My yoga practice continues…
Michelle: it was her day off, since it was a really long day at the Disney Tinker Bell half marathon expo.
Michelle’s day 16 of healing recap:
After my plank I took my morning probiotic, fish oil pill, and l-glutamine and gelatin with coconut oil.
The downstairs restaurant in the hotel was not open yet so I decided to snack on a banana with some coffee as I got ready for the day.
Once the restaurant was open the group headed downstairs. My Disney breakfast was very similar to yesterday but just with more bacon.
Here I am with my older sister, Jen, wearing our raw threads Tinker Bell Fly shirts. All ready for the last day of the expo.
It was a VERY long day yesterday.
I did snack on two bananas at the booth and did not eat dinner until about 11:30pm at night. That is when we were done packing up the booth. So I did not take my pills as by that time all I wanted was food. My dinner was the same thing from yesterday. A very weird day of eats and looking forward to getting back on a normal routine here soon!
Michelle Day 16 recap –
Bathroom: yes, stool about 3 to 4
Skin: no complaints
Water intake – 6-7 cups (lost count of how much)
I am sooooo looking forward to getting home so I can start making some yummy eats like Lori! Just a few days left of travel for me 🙂
Sorry for the lack of pictures. Like I said it was a VERY BUSY day.
Lori’s day 16 of healing recap:
I took my morning probiotic, 1/2 tsp cod liver oil/butter blend, and l-glutamine and gelatin.
After my yoga session I felt like doing something a little different with my first meal of the day. I was making waffles for Gary and decided I wanted a waffle too.
I basically just blended my 2 handfuls of chopped kale, 3 1/2oz sweet potato, and 2 eggs in my Vita-mix. Poured batter into waffle maker and ta-da green waffles.
A very green waffle! The waffle experiment worked out! I topped my green waffle with with 1 tbsp coconut oil and gobbled it right up. Enjoyed some black coffee too.
I must say it was fun to create the same typical first meal for me and enjoy it in a different way.
Later in the day it was time to juice.
Juice made about 16oz; 1 beet, fresh ginger, fresh parsley, 5 stalks of kale, 5 carrots, 4 stalks of romaine, 4 radishes and half cucumber.
I enjoyed my favorite kind of juice – beet juice. I love any juices with beets in it. Bonus it gives you vampire lips and teeth 😉
Jax wanted some juice, haha
Snacks for the day was a banana and couple handfuls of veggie chia seed pulp crackers.
I took my pre-dinner pills: 1/2 tsp cod liver oil, l-glutamine, quercetin, licorice, digestive enzyme and more gelatin.
Dinner was another new recipe experiment. Lamb veggie pulp mustard meatloaf. I had about 4 oz of the lamb meatloaf with spinach and about a cup of broccoli and half avocado. Topped with black lava sea salt, sauerkraut and 1 tbsp coconut oil.
I fell in love with lamb meatloaf the first time Michelle and I ate lamb based meatloaf, and I knew I had to make it again. This time around I added in some leftover juice pulp and mustard instead of the typical tomato paste that goes in meatloaf since I am trying to avoid nightshades. This new lamb meatloaf (I get my grass-fed lamb meat from US Wellness meats) experiment was delicious! It was different but I loved the flavors and texture.
I am sure if you wanted to try using leftover juice pulp in a vegan nut or lentil based meatloaf to keep it vegan it would work. I think it would be a great addition.
Gary and I enjoyed our dinner outside by the fire.
Also enjoyed some white wine with kombucha and two coconut flour based thin mints (recipe in our cookbook).
A perfect Saturday for me.
I love trying new recipes and being successful.
Lori’s Day 16 recap:
Bathroom: bowel movement in the morning, stool was like a 2-3
Gas: no, no bloating either
Skin: still dealing with the few pimples on chin, forehead, and next to nose
Water intake – 9 cups water (does not include juice)
Yesterday was overall a great day for me. I really enjoyed all my eats and had a wonderful leisure Saturday with Gary and Jax.
Love seeing these photos from you guys! Christieros – so happy you enjoyed our coconut flour chocolate chip cookies! And Brookeeking – so glad we can inspire you with delicious meals!
And Nicole thank you for your sweet words and purchase of our cookbook! xoxo
Twins Question: Anyone else try lamb meatloaf before? What kitchen experiment or new recipe of you tried and liked? Anyone run in any races this weekend? Anyone else enjoying some fires on these cold nights?
til next time,
