I got that instant hunger feeling around 10:30. The rest of the Butternut Squash Soup made on Friday curbed it perfectly. My energy for the entire morning was incredible. I was able to do several things including working on my bookkeeping job, picking up the house, laundry, dishes (I can’t seem to stay caught up on the dishes with the GAPS going on, glad my teens take turns doing them too) and food prep without issue. Christopher and I even did a little Tot School.
Around 12:30 Christopher and I finished off the breakfast soup, at least the solids in it. I still had some broth left that I put in the fridge for ‘snacking’ on. I very much enjoyed the chicken thigh that hadn’t appealed to me at breakfast time and Christopher loved the stew meat that I had added in. I kept the soup on the simmer burner all morning which gave it a wonderful rich flavor.
Hunger hit me again around 3 so I had a little roast beef and some green beans.
Dinner was wonderful. I made Cod Fish and Mushrooms, mashed carrots and we finished off the green beans. Joe and I loved the fish.
My mood was super good all day. I felt wonderful with more energy that I’ve had in weeks and weeks. I did wish for a die off bath today but couldn’t take time to manage it. However it did have a foot bath which was recommended as an alternative on GAPS Guide website . I think it was helpful.
Have I mentioned that it is incredibly warm here still? It has been in the mid 80’s for several days. In fact other than one or two days in the low 60’s the weather has remained summer like. I do enjoy the warm weather but think that cooler weather would make all of the soups and broths we are eating more enjoyable 🙂 Rain in the forecast for this weekend so that will for sure be soup weather.
