Slipping and Sliding

There wasn’t a single day in the last seven that I didn’t slip or slide on my drive. Some of the days were better than others but none started out clear. I have had to take the long way (main roads) to work every day this week. Even today when I took the girl to the movie theater for a BTS thing this morning, I stuck to the main roads.

Wednesday Mother Nature threw some rain in the mix….it was dicey in the morning and then better in the afternoon. I even spotted a rainbow on my way back from the farm where I started buying our meat.

Underneath all of the snow….I found a little bit of Spring….

Most of my spare time these days is spent trying to find new GAPS recipes. Mostly I feel like I am wasting a lot of almond flour and it’s not cheap. Today I made an apple crumble and I made an apple/pear sauce. Truth be told….I don’t need the crumble and liked the plain applesauce better. The best snack recipe is still the crackers from last week…hands down.  https://elanaspantry.com/salt-and-pepper-crackers/   It will be better when I make a soft cheese to dip them in. I made yogurt Thursday/Friday and next I will make sour cream. Can’t make the sour cream without the yogurt so I am getting there slowly but surely.

I have heard one of the girls at work refer to my GAPS diet as “like a keto” and it really isn’t. Keto is big on the fake sugars and other things that make me uncomfortable. I would say Paleo is pretty close to GAPS with less limitations. 

Some days are harder than others….last night I would have given almost anything for take out but that’s not something I can do right now.  I settled for left overs and survived.  I was looking forward to trying some vegi chips and today I made zucchini chips…. they in no way satisfy any craving…I won’t make those again…..Zia
