Tonight was our Wednesday night family dinner, and the fam was most impressed by my colourful plate of food: Grilled chicken (complete with those nice griddle lines on it), bright yellow gem squash and lovely orange butternut. They kept saying how healthy and appetising it looked – and it was!
They all tucked into macaroni and cheese sauce – one of my all-time favourites. I used to have about four helpings at a time (no exaggeration).
I didn’t take a pic of my plate, but I should have. I’m not one of those ‘snap and share’ foodies like you see on Instagram, not least of all because of the snore factor of my current plates. But tonight’s dinner looked something like the pic below (just with gem squash added), which is pretty tasty looking if you ask me 🙂
Which means that I’m just a few additions and some honey away from THIS deliciousness:
The days really do pass so quickly, and I’m guessing that it’ll just be a few weeks before my food looks like the plate above (without the sweet potatoes though). SCD really is a great diet once you get past the baby steps and start to crawl 🙂
My body is doing well with the starchy veg, and it’s so exciting to be growing my list of ‘manageable’ foods every few days. Apart from the apples that didn’t agree with me, everything else has been fine. I still have some frozen pear puree so I might try that this weekend before moving on to phase 2. I think I will because I want that tuppaware back.
These are improving, are slightly more forthcoming, and definitely better formed and quite soft. I’m still taking the magnesium so I’m sure that’s helping, along with all the veg.
Today being day 18, I’ve only 12 days left until COFFEE AND WINE!! I’m no alcoholic but WATER ONLY for 18 solid days is driving me a bit batty. I’ve imposed this 30-day ban myself, as I haven’t found any formal guidelines about drinks on SCD (ie, when to introduce them). I do know that wine should be limited to dry varieties, and coffee should be ground (not instant) and weak.
Bring it oooooooooooon!
