I made it! Pfew!


I am officially on the Life Phase of the Elimination diet!  I just realized I could’ve transition this past Monday!  I thought I would have been crossing off the calendar eager to add some more foods back into my diet! The past 6 weeks have went by VERY quickly, and I didn’t even realize how many weeks it had been until I was counting them up to answer someone’s message at The Kitchen Table, Strange how a plan can actually grow on you, and you forget you are “doing’ it… well, you forget until you go out to a restaurant and it is hard to navigate a vague menu! 😉


Now I just have to keep myself as much on track as possible without going crazy.  If you have any yeast-free/ sugar-free bread recipes please share!  Bonus points if they are gluten-free as well!

I plan on seeing the Naturopath again at the end of June, and I hope to be able to report better blood test results!

Have a great week!  XO

What I’ve been Eating…

This is a recap of some of the foods that made the iphone photo library (lesser quality photos, sorry!) while healing from my surgery.  Don’t mind my green blankie in the photos, I have ate almost all my meals on the couch lately– ahh…the life of a gimpy recluse!

These clean eats have helped me lose another 4.5 pounds while sitting on my bum resting!  Not bad… I tell you… not bad! :)

Quinoa pancakes topped with almond butter and mixed berries… who needs syrup?? 😉

Candida yeast-free Kinnikinnick Bread topped with Crunch Sunflower butter and some strawberry chia jam! My new favourite breakfast!!

Veggie Omelette one whole egg and 3 whites, from my free range hens! :)

Coconut & Almond crusted Tilapia with side salad and some jalapeno greek yogurt

Mexican pulled chicken with blackbeans, & coleslaw on a brown rice wrap with a side of veggies :)

yummy protein/veggies lunch! with a side of hummus

Treat supper of Beanitos tortillas with my homemade salsa, pureed avocado and jalapeno greek yogurt, YUM!

Other than this there has been a lot of fish, and chicken with green salads, and the occasional sweet potato, or sweet potato fries. I love that I am on Phase 2 now and am allowed sweet potatoes again!!

Now I am off to do round two of my physio exercises,

  • 10 minutes on the bike rotating back and forth, back and forth as far as I can manage
  • 10 minutes of reformer squats
  • 10 sets of 10 seconds straightening with resistance band w/ 10 seconds of rest
  • 10 leg raises
  • 10 heel slides

I hope soon my knee will be a perfect 10!

Blogging Hiatus

It has been a month since I have last posted… for the few who check on here regularly to see if I had posted anything, I am sorry!

Life has been busy.

After turning the ripe old age of 33, I have spent the past month continuing to eat clean following my plan and now transitioned into Phase 2! :)

I have been trying some new recipes that fit my diet… Like the Coconut Lime Cheesecake Squares in my Oxygen magazine. 

While they were baking I tweeted describing how good they smelled and it was featured in the May 2012 issue on the Letters of the Month page!! Pretty exciting as they are my favourite magazine, along with Clean Eating Magazine! –yes… I have a thing for Robert Kennedy Publishing!  & Tosca Reno!

As well I had been preparing my house and my life for post-surgery.  On April 30th I had an ACL reconstruction revision with an allograft (donor) —I will write more on that in another post.  

Now I just need to rest, and recoup following my Doctor and Physiotherapist’s guidelines.

I am now off from work until September… Please keep your fingers-crossed I get another contract with the school board next year!! :)

Now that I am stuck on my butt for awhile I hope to post a little more regular!  In between chauffeuring my kids to and from Ball and Swim Club! 😉
