What is up day nine?!?!?! So, good!!! Again, it was a rough night and day for me with this allergic battle of mine. Hardly slept, tossing and turning throughout the whole night. I slept in sessions, and ended up only getting out of the house pretty late… around 3pm… when I say it was a rough night was because it really was.
No morning snacks, or I should say early afternoon snacks… non existence. I had two coffees and a ton of water… I ate pretty late last night. I made a basic salad with the addition of sesame seeds… hit the spot and super refreshing. But, because I was out of olive oil, it was vingear and sea salt, and of ocurse sesame seeds… which, was just as good, if there were olive oil. Now, call me crazy but I love vingear and I actually drink the dressing once I finish the salad, and I always put more vingear than olive oil. It’s just so good, and yes it thins your blood but it cuts fats, which is GREAT!!! Not so much the blood thinner part, but the fat cutting is pretty sweet!
Now, for dinner…. Spicy cheesy vegetables!!! This time, I’m going to give you the recipe before the photo. First, dice up three cloves of garlic and two spicy thai chilli peppers into a pan with two tablespoons of olive oil, prior to beginning dice up three tomatos, three mushrooms, two stems of broccoli, one quarter red pepper and one quarter green pepper. From there, add chicken stock into the pan and sauteed until garlic turns a nice golden brown, then add the tomatoes, let cook for roughly five minutes. Then add, the rest of the vegetables and cook for roughly eight to ten minutes, add a cup of water to avoid anything from sticking to the pan along a pinch of sea salt and a teaspoon of garlic powder. Final step, add mozzarella cheese and cook until completely melted. You could eat it as a dip with wheat whole tortilla chips or by itself, just as it is. And, there you have it… spicy cheesy vegetables.
It was absolutely incredible… I wasn’t going to eat all of it, but come on, look at that… how could I not?! And this, was a swing it kind of recipe… confession, most of my recipes are me swinging it… I let my creative juices flow throughout the day, giving me ideas for what I should cook next. And, let me tell you, so far it has been great! Pretty impressed with myself, never realized how creative I was with food or even how good I was at cooking. My brother was always the chief… but, now I can see I am too!!!
As for snacks, I ate a ton of nuts, cashews and almonds. So good… to be honest I kind of lost control with the cashews, they were hitting the spot, and I just couldn’t stop myself. Either way, cashews are extremely healthy for you, although binging is bad, but binging on healthy stuff isn’t as bad. As for water, I have a ton of it, three litres to be exact. Again, no exercise, between wanting to rip off my skin and itching my entire body, it is kind of the last thing on my mind. I can’t wait to get over this allergy, I just hope I’m right about it being my laundry detergent and not something else, because I can’t go on like this… it is so extremely uncomfortable, so many sleepless nights the passed two weeks… between stress and this allergy, it’s been a struggle to get a full nights rest. So, I just keep pushing.
Onto day ten….
