*** I had my breakfast quite early because I had an f/u appointment with my gastro-enterologist… was prescribed another type of antiobiotics (Flagyl) to take for the next 7 days to try to eradicate this parasite that is still causing symptoms… we’ll see how it goes, I don’t like antibiotics but I don’t have other option at this point. Meanwhile, I’ll continue to eat my daily dose of raw organic sauerkraut & take my yeast probiotics Floractive(known as Florastor in the USA).
:: 10am: 2 free-range eggs + 1 slice free-range bacon + zucchini with olive oil (I felt like a kid when plating my breakfast!)
:: 1pm: free-range & gluten-free chicken sausages + mesclun + balsamic vinegar + last few drops of my extra-virgin olive oil I brought back directly from Spain… 😦
:: 6h45pm: grass-fed beef + Brussels sprouts + turnip + broccoli + onions in red wine sauce
:: 7pm: 25 g dark chocolate + organic raw cocoa nibs (melted a few secs in the micro-wave!)
*** I am going out of Melbourne CBD (for the 1st time!!) for Easter weekend and will be going to the Yarra Valley (leaving tomorrow Friday). Our weekend include a tour of 4 to 5 wineries = wine and artisanal cheese tasting. I will drink wine, which I really enjoy but drink only occasionally, and I will have cheese in small amounts. However, I willstay gluten-free. Our B&B hosts is happy to prepare gluten-free breakfast for us and we have found restaurants offering gluten-free options in the area. I really don’t care whether it is considered cheating, I just consider it living! I’ll do my best to stay on track but won’t miss any special opportunity! This weekend, my boyfriend and I will actually be celebrating our 11th anniversary (which actually was on March 23rd, but I was sick at that time). My high school sweetheart and I will definitely enjoy our weekend and I’ll keep you posted about my weekend when I come back on Sunday. =) Happy Easter!
:: 6h30pm: 4 squares (20 g or about 100 calories) dark chocolate with a little bit of organic raw cocoa nibs *** since I am doing this new 30-day challenge sans coconut products, with the exception of coconut oil, and sans nuts (to which I believe I currently have a hypersensitivity due to the damages caused by my lovely parasite friend), I will allow myself to have dark chocolate! 😉 I will re-evaluate my progress in a couple of weeks to see whether it seems to be causing problems or not.
