Yesterday was an active rest day for us. We went for two walks outside. Both of us (and Jax) are anxious for the warmer weather!
Started our morning with green juice. Juices have been kale, romaine, cucumber, carrots, granny smith apple, fresh ginger. Simple and delicious.
Later it was time for coffee with our eggs. We had leftover salmon from the night before that we decided to throw into our egg mixture with shredded brussel sprouts. And of course had some raw runny yolks and coconut oil.
We played in the kitchen some yesterday. Making some desserts for us to enjoy the next few days with our parents (who are coming into town). First up we made some raw cookies. Instead of pumpkin seeds listed in original recipe we used almonds. And did a mix of cacao nibs with Enjoy life chocolate chips. These raw cookies are going with the cupcakes we are making today all topped with our cashew frosting from our cookbook.
Snacked on marshmallows and chia seed pulp crackers all day long.
Enjoyed some matcha green tea with some maca and stevia mixed in.
Made ourselves another egg pancake with perfect fit protein that crumbled on us. So we tossed crumbs into a bowl and topped with bee pollen, cacao nibs and coconut oil. (for the egg pancake with just add one whole egg with one scoop perfect fit protein with some water, and cook on stovetop)
Dinner was buffalo burger, half avocado, half zucchini and some steamed turnips. Lori added a handful of lettuce to her plate. Both topped with coconut oil. Also enjoyed some cider with our dinner. Michelle’s first time having cider. Thanks to Teri for the recommendation. We enjoyed it!
Dessert was our chocolate chip cookies that makes 2.
Thank you all so much for your suggestions, thoughts and tips on carbs, magnesium, and green tea. And digestion in general. We love you all so much! We are excited to try some new things in our diet to see how our bodies do. Of course we will keep you all updated and share any findings along the way.
And we are curious about how taking maca AGAIN will help with our hormones, as you know we have been suffering from hormonal imbalance for 4 years now from going off birth control.
Over the years we have had short lived moments when we thought we were getting better, but then we would get a really bad hormonal acne break out, bad mood swings, and still have irregular periods. As you can see from our history we have shared and tried just about everything.
Hormones are not that easy to heal! But we are determined to find our balance, so we can help others that suffer too. We have done a ton of research and read books on balancing hormones and they all pretty much say the same thing. And we have done just about everything people and doctors recommend. We know there is a solution we just have to stay positive and keep moving forward!
We both are doing well. Yesterday was a good day for us both and we have a lot going on these next few days. As we mentioned above our parents are coming into town so we are SUPER excited!!
Twins Question: Do you find when you research about hormones or read a book that they all say the same/similar things? Do you like scientific research or personal experience to help you reach a solution?
