BreakfaSt of weirdos

File this under bizarro breakfast. I won’t have an opportunity to eat again until much later so I ate a whole bowl of greens in coconut milk at 7am. I added in some beef collagen powder and chowed down. It was actually really nice and warm and tasty. Wasn’t sure my newly awake belly was going to be so keen on that much “non breakfasty” food, but it worked. I guess the question is what makes something “breakfast food”?  What did you have for breakfast?

Thai Green Curry Coconut Soup…

Tonight’s dinner was delicious! I wish I had made more. 

  
Loose recipe (I need to start taking note of measurements!):

Add roughly diced garlic, green beans, and chard in pot with a mini container of Pacific brand chicken bone broth, salt, and red pepper flakes. 

Simmer until veggies are getting tender. 

Stir in 2 tsps of green curry paste, 1 can of unsweetened coconut milk, half a can of water chestnuts and pieces of rotisserie chicken. Simmer for a few minutes to heat up chicken and let flavors meld. 

Serve and enjoy! Fed two of us, though I’m still a little hungry. 

I find these coconut soups so deeply satisfying and nurturing. They make my mouth happy! The curry was flavorful but not spicy. The chicken soaks up all the broth goodness. Yum yum yum. 

  
 
If you try it let me know what you think! Also, what did you have for dinner tonight?

Yours in coconut contentment,

I miss soy sauce…

I love Asian flavors, the umami of soy sauce, the sweet and the salty and the spicy. My mouth waters thinking about soy sauce stir fried veggies, so I tried to make do with Coconut Aminos. 

Dinner: sautéed veggies and chicken with fish sauce, ginger and coconut aminos (They say the aminos can replace soy sauce… I say BAH! Next stop, trash can!). It didn’t taste like much and I didn’t realize it had 1g of sugar per tsp. Fail. Otherwise it was a bland but fine meal, lol. Added in some carrots for some carbs. 

  
Now I’m stressing I over sugared. I have two competing thoughts in my brain: 1) Starve the damn mold and feel better 2) This is all a bunch of horse shit and I should just eat healthfully and support my system while it works through the mold exposure and stop with the super restrictive diet. 

There seem to be proponents on both sides. I don’t want to do anything to make things worse in either direction so it stresses me out. There seem to be doctors and other health practitioners on either side. But really isn’t everyone just trying to promote their take, sell snake oil? That’s pretty cynical but that’s how I’m feeling at the moment. Also, I hear I have to break down the mold/yeast biofilm in order to have a chance at combatting it with diet. Will be ordering pancreatic enzymes soon… Anyone ever try those? Anyone out there? Is this mic on?!

Maybe I should just have some ice cream or a glass of wine and call it a day (I’m too stubborn for that, until I’ve seen this through longer). I’m tired. And worried i over sugared, under immune-supported, helped in the genicide of chickens and generally feel like I’m getting nowhere. 

I should also mention I was caring for an incontinent dog this past week and haven’t had a solid night sleep in five days. I type this back in my own bed and I am so happy about that!

Alright, interwebs, I am off to watch bad tv to stop obsessing about this whole rigamaroll.

Ps anyone have any non-sugar, non-soy stir fry tips?

PPS Biofilms anyone?!?

Egg-cellent!?!?

 

eggs, avocado, greens, olive oil, s+p
 
It’s been over a month since I took eggs out of my diet, per my doctor’s suggestion. I have truly missed this easy morning go-to. Here at Reveille Cafe, they kindly oblige my annoying requests for greens instead of bread, and olive oil instead of butter (not back to dairy…yet). 

Here goes nothing. I’m hoping beyond my hope my stomach greets these eggs as long lost friends, not foes! Will let you know.

Coconut curry chicken, broccoli and asparagus soup…

Hiya, Internet folks! Tonight I bought an organic rotisserie chicken and didn’t realize until I was home that it was terribly overdone. Figuring a soup was the best way to rehydrate it, I set to work.  

  
I sautéed shallots in olive oil, added the broccoli stems and then proceeded to add every spice I have in the house…seriously. Like a crazy person, I added a little bit of the following to a small bowl: paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, turmeric, coriander, cumin, curry powder, cayenne, cinnamon, salt and … I think that’s it. Oh wait, red pepper flakes! I threw that all in with one can of coconut milk, juice of one lime and a little water and let it cook covered until the veggies were about half done and then dropped in the desert like chicken. And simmered for about 7 more minutes. After serving it up, I topped it with some nice olive oil. 

I’m shocked at how tasty it came out. It could have gone terribly wrong but it came out like a legit curry. Ok, maybe not legit, per se, but pretty damn close. It was spice-full, but not overwhelmingly so. The flavor sort of landed somewhere between Thailand and India. 

Granted, I do have a bit of heartburn after downing two bowls in less time then it took to cook. Whoops. 

The Chief of Clean Floors wanted in on the action!
