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.   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
