What do you mean yeast, Chloe? You just added wheat yesterday! You can’t have yeast yet! Yes, I know. See, I was going to add yeast on Friday in the form of sourdough bread. So I would need to make it tomorrow so that it would be ready for my lunch. But I wanted Will’s help, since he’s a baker. So I made it tonight. But then I didn’t even really use his help and I really wanted a piece of freshly baked bread. So I did it. Hey, if I react, I react. And sourdough is supposed to be easier to digest.
My skin looked good today. I took time and noticed where there are still rough spots where the skin is not fully healed. I do not know what these spots indicate. I hope they will clear up eventually. They are not red or irritated.
I’ve been tired lately. And I’ve been eating too much. When I’m done testing all these grains, I am going to try to go back to a low-grain diet.
Breakfast: Egg Muffin with a pear
Lunch: Coconut Flatbread (so, so good; I need to make more) with peanut butter and Blueberry Jam, carrots
Dinner: Turkey Quinoa Meatballs (Nourishing Meals Cookbook, page 335) with Nomato Sauce, whole wheat pasta, and kale – I cooked the meatballs slightly differently than in the recipe (didn’t brown them, cooked them for 30 minutes without sauce, then another 30 with the sauce), but they still turned out fantastic. I was very pleased with this dish and combination of flavors. It is definitely something I will eat in the future and could be happy with in the long term if I can never have tomatoes again.
Snacks: Apple, banana, Carrot Almond Muffin, pecans, bread with Blueberry Jam
Like I mentioned, I made bread today. It was 100% Whole Wheat Sourdough. This recipe had 45 minutes to an hour of hands-on time and took the entire evening to make – over 4 hours total. It was very good, though. Perhaps a bit dense, but that is likely more my fault (or my starter’s fault) than the recipe’s. I will definitely make it again. We also .ended up having a ton of extra meatballs (used 2.5 lbs of meat for only 3 people), so I froze a bunch of those as well for future meals.
