Since we’ve moved in, we’ve had a big heap of linens sitting in our hallway, and I simply cannot abide by it any longer. Today, it’s history. I don’t care how many loads it takes: I’m in for the long haul.
I’m also putting together a physical recipe box of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that are low-calorie, low-fat, and low on the glycemic index scale and delicious. So, I’m basically looking at recipes that I already know are good for type 2 diabetics. This isn’t gonna be too difficult for me, because I used to eat this way before I switched over to the Paleo Diet.
I have half a mind to create a Pinterest Compendium of these kinds of recipes too, but that will have to wait for another day. Right now, I’m just trying to re-wrap my head around my ability to eat *some* grains, *some* dairy, and *some* beans.
Tonight, I’m making beef stew for supper. The only difference between paleo beef stew and non-paleo beef stew is arrowroot vs. flour for thickening. I’m going to go ahead and continue to use arrowroot because we have it! I mean, why use white flour if you don’t need to?
I’m also excited to be able to start to follow and make recipes handed down by my good friend Katherine over at Rags to Dishes. While on the Paleo Diet, the best thing I could do was look on and go, “Wow, those recipes look great!” Now, I can actually try some of her culinary masterpieces!
As for how I’m feeling today: I’m great! I figured that going down 10 mg on Cymbalta and 25 mg on Lamictal would leave me feeling awful, but surprisingly enough, I’m in a great mood and I’m not hurting. I’m sort of waiting for the other shoe to drop, but in the meanwhile I’m enjoying feeling well!
One thing you learn when you have MS is to take your victories while you can get them and enjoy them as best as possible, so I am not going to spend the whole day in the house, sitting online. I already have a grocery list written out, and I am going to head up to the grocery store in a few minutes to pick up the fixins for supper (and my lunch!).
I hope that everyone who reads this is doing well and is having a wonderful day.
Oh! I’d also like to share one other website that my friend Carolyn shared with me today. It helped me with my meditation earlier, and is just beautiful. Y’all should check out Calm.com. You won’t be disappointed.
