shabu shabu dinner the other night and we fried them and some extra greens (rainbow chard) in coconut oil, added the juice from half a lime, some coconut aminos, sliced garlic and some Himalayan pink salt and it was absolutely delicious. More vegetables should have been added. One always forget how they shrink while cooked.
I used the same method to make yet another slow cooker soup overnight to eat for breakfast and lunch. I made this without white cabbage to make it lower in FODMAPs. This soup consisted of home made chicken broth, chicken and all the oldest vegetables from our fridge (daikon and daikon greens, bok choy, turnips, carrots, zucchini, squash, kale), chopped in small pieces. Added some salt. No other spices this time. After eleven days on a very simple autoimmune paleo diet I am starting to appreciate plain tastes and don't crave spices as much. Didn't expect that to happen.
After 11 days on the diet we feel pretty good. We sleep better. The world looks sharper and we feel calmer but also energetic. Our blood sugar regulation is better (I don't have to snack!). When I get hungry, I don't get weak or irritable, get this piercing hunger pain in my stomach or feel like I have to get something to eat immediately or I will collapse. I just feel this little hunger tickle my tummy and if I don't eat right away, it goes away and comes to tickle me later again but without all the extra sensations I described before. Stools are beautiful (sorry if too much information but stools are important, read more about - and look at pictures - how poop should be like here). The first week we were tired and had some headaches and food cravings but I think we are over that. We are so glad we started this experiment.
