Lily cut a vampire tooth last night. Yup, she has two front teeth on the bottom, one to the left about to cut, and a top vampire tooth on the right. We're about to have a funny looking kid. But hey, who could be mad at a chubby vampire baby for biting? Ok, maybe me...but you can't ;]
Last week was a success for Nourishing Traditions! And for me not eating refined sugar! Total, the only thing I ate that I shouldn't have last week was refrigerator biscuits with Spank-o-pita last night, and two pieces of white bread on Friday night. DANG WHITE BREAD! Other than that, everything was homemade and soaked.
Here's what we've got on the menu this week:
- Steamed egg yolks [I crack the egg, removing the white (maybe save them for something later on that day, but usually not) place the egg yolk carfully into a collinder (or steaming basket would work too) and place in a pot with an inch of simmering water covered for about 5 mins. Allow to cool and add a little salt]
- Fruit or veggies steamed
Scrambled eggs w/sautéed veggies
Soaked Panckakes [SO good, we served them last week with Amish butter and raw, local honey and steamed fruits. It was very filling! We used the recipe right out of NT because I didn't really like most of the ones I found online]
- Salad w/pan fried fish [talapia, flounder, or salmon]
- Fish [the same mentioned above] with brown rice and steamed veggies
- Hummus plate [chic peas soaked for 24 hours and cooked in the crockpot over night. VERY tedious, but noticably tastier.
- Laver [nori]
- kale chips
- turnip chips
- sweet potato fries
Monday: Scallops with cherry tomatoes, pesto, and whole wheat rotini
Tuesday: To the Brownings for supper and Lost.
Wednesday: Greek Big Beans with Brown Rice
Thursday: Shitake Soup
Friday: Kidney Bean and Cauliflower Coconut Curry
Saturday: Pizza [made my first soaked what thin pizza last week! Very good, even though I sorta ruined it, lol ]
Sunday: Lentil Pockets with Yogurt Tahini.
I'm having trouble getting Eamon to like the tartness of the soaked grains, any suggestions?
Well, off to do the mommy thing!
