Remember this is 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.
Let us know if you make our broccoli breadsticks! So happy everyone is enjoying that recipe as well as our no sugar gelatin mini cake. We were so pleased with the results of both recipes. And both of us went to bed craving that mini gelatin cake when we woke up!
Did the tone it up new love your arms routine for the their Love your Body Valentine challenge. Loved this arm workout. Used 8lb weights as that is the heaviest I have at the house. I keep meaning to go get heavier weights but forget! The 8lb weights were still a great arm challenge! Grrrr … feel those arms growing 🙂 I admit my arms are my favorite body part, since they are the ‘easiest’ body part for me to get toned.
I am slowly getting toned arms like Lori 🙂
Michelle’s day 27 of healing recap:
I took my morning probiotic, 1/2 tsp fermented cod liver oil butter blend, l-glutamine and marshmallows (fun way to get my gelatin)
Breakfast was something fun! Inspired from our single serving gelatin cake.
Egg white grain free pancake (single serving)
- 2 egg whites (save the yolks to use as the syrup)
- 1 tbsp carob
- 1 tsp gelatin
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Whisk ingredients together and then pour into a hot skillet. Let cook well before trying to flip. Once cooked enjoy the yolks as your syrup.
I enjoyed my egg white grain free waffle on top of cooked swiss chard! And egg yolks make for the best syrup 🙂
Lunch was lamb meatballs and 7 oz worth of cooked cabbage and turnips (I took one whole head of green cabbage, sliced it up with 3 sliced turnips and cooked in a little coconut oil).
I drizzled my simple lunch with 1 tbsp olive oil.
Later in the day I enjoyed my cup of bone broth, this time Lori and I decided to add 1 tbsp coconut oil –> totally made it taste better!
Minnie and I had a date 😉
I was running into some technology problems, therefore was stressing a lot so enjoyed a cup of dandy tea to help relax me.
Once I calmed down I made me some juice!
I did add in another carrot to help make the juice bigger – I think I got around 20 oz worth.
Parents took me out to eat last night! I enjoyed steamed broccoli and grilled mahi. Simple yet satisfying. (I did take my pre-dinner pills of digestive enzyme, l-glutamine, quercetin and licorice)
Dessert was a bowl of cashews. I soaked 1/4 cup cashews before heading out to dinner, then rinsed them when I got back.
Love love love cashews, sure hope my body does too!
The reason Lori and I picked cashews to bring back into our diet first is because it is low on the salicylate list. Plus, we also felt we did fine with eating them in the past, and we wanted more food to help get us more calories!!! Eating less carbs is starting to show, so we are hoping with adding in more fats and protein will help give us calories for energy. For those who are wondering more about our eats check out here and here.
Before bed I enjoyed gelatin coconut oil mush! I know looks weird but I really do enjoy it. And I took my probiotic and finally remembered to rub magnesium oil on my legs.
Michelle: Day 27 recap –
Bathroom: success, much like yesterday
Water intake –about 9 cups (does not include juice)
Lori’s day 27 healing recap:
I took my morning probiotic, 1 tsp fermented cod liver oil, and l-glutamine and ate my marshmallows for my gelatin.
Enjoyed two carob marshmallows. SO good. Need to make more.
First meal of the day was something fun and soooo good. Like I mentioned earlier, I was craving our mini gelatin cake (made the cake with egg whites and enjoyed the egg yolks raw over kale).
Enjoyed sisterly coffee talk 🙂
While I enjoyed my coffee talk Jax enjoyed his peanut butter filled kong.
Kept him busy for a little bit. He loves his kong.
Next I enjoyed some pulp veggie crackers with a plate of deliciousness. I enjoyed about 5oz shrimp (weight was when it was frozen) sauteed in 1 tsp ghee in a skillet with turnips and green cabbage. Topped with one more 1 tsp ghee. YUM.
Later enjoyed another carob marshmallow.
Mid-afternoon snack was juice.
Juice was a simple carrot, swiss chard & cucumber juice.
Also enjoyed 2 cups bone broth with 1 tbsp coconut oil in it, which really helped with the flavor!
Before dinner I took my pre-dinner pills of digestive enzyme, l-glutamine, quercetin and licorice.
Dinner was handful of butter lettuce, some sauteed zucchini, lots of parsnips fries and a half can salmon and half can sardines in water. Topped with sea salt and olive oil. I am really starting to like the flavor of sardines. Still not gaga over it, but learning to really like it. My body seems to be liking them as well.
After dinner enjoyed some stevia based marshmallow.
And dessert was 1/4 cup soaked (and rinsed) raw cashews.
Experimenting with bringing in cashews first back into our diet. As it is one nut we love and never felt like we had issues with. And after eating them I did not notice anything. I will continue to pay attention to the consumption of cashews.
Took probiotic before bed and did put magnesium oil on body.
Lori: Day 27 recap –
Bathroom: yes, good bowel movement in morning
Energy: pretty good, got tired in the evening
Gas: none until late night, no bloating
Skin: still dealing with a few pimples on chin that are slowly getting smaller, besides that nothing new
Water intake –about 9 cups (does not include juice)
Twins Question: Anyone have superbowl plans this weekend? What is your favorite green to juice? Ever try swiss chard in your juice?
