Day 37 – Valentines Day

Breakfast was Cacao-Pow, juice, lunch was chicken, lemon, sea salt, basil quinoa over salad – more Cacao Pow—GREAT breakfast—I am still in a bit of a slump today may not be as bad as yesterday but definitely not as good as I was doing a few days ago.  I was excited about it being valentines day today and even went out to buy the stuff for our dinner.

Usually I would take my wife to a nice place to eat, but this year we have to really watch what we eat so we’ve decided to have dinner at home.  We went a little out of what some consider candida safe food and bought some shrimp for dinner, but we also bought some Ahi Tunu for dinner (which is candida friendly).  It was fairly expensive but we figure we still spent at least half what we would have had we gone out to dinner.

I did finish what I was hoping to yesterday and got my sweatie a card and also rose petals which I put all over our bedroom—I think she was pleased.

Here is a picture of the roses I got for her yesterday (Fire and Ice)

Lunch was large salad with—of course—quinoa, busy afternoon putting everything together and then dinner.  We ate just a little with our boys (more snacking really) and then when they went to bed we cooked (or really just seared) our Ahi Tuna—One of my most favorite things in the world is seared ahi tuna.  When work use to flip the bill for my mills when I traveled I use to try to go to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse the home—in my opinion—to the best seared ahi tuna around!

Dinner was an AWESOME we also cooked the shrimp with lemon, garlic, salt and basil.  We even tried to make sugar cookies without sugar and with gluten free flour (baking mix).  Here is the recipe although we substituted the vanilla extract with coconut oil and also the butter with coconut oil to because we are off dairy, but we will try again with butter.  Also, since we are staying away from gluten we used the gluten free flower in place of the other flour—they even had the sugar cookie feel when done (hereis a picture of the dough, sorry I didn't get a picture of the finished cookies)—good day even though I have taken a slide in my progress!
