I feel like so much life has happened in the last couple days! Just going to post something quick to update you all.
So Much in the Last Two Days!
I survived my GI tests! AND I'm off my clear liquid diet! Look - I even got to take this balloon glove friend home with me too - I work in the anesthesia department and my anesthesiologists gave me this (usually she makes these for all the kid patients..but hey - i'm kinda a kid!) So grateful to have B with me for the procedures and to have his support this week. It seriously knocked me out harder than I thought it would. But I feel like every day I'm getting back more and more energy!
My request on the way home from the hospital was to stop at the drive thru of my favorite coffee shop - Beans! I got an almond milk cappucino with 1 pump of SF vanilla - SO GOOD. Isn't it adorable they put a mini donut on the top of all their hot drinks? You can also order them separately!
New daily staples! Picked up the Costco sizes even. I get prebiotics and probiotics in my daily shakeology, but I figured that since my gut is seriously empty I will need some extra!
I had to get back in the kitchen and do some baking of course! I got a new cookbook and HIGHLY recommend it! These cookie bars are my FAVORITE ones i've ever made! You can order the cookbook below!
totally random, but I've been trying to get in some more FATS to help things through the system. I am in love with this combo! Sweet potato fries + coconut oil + cinnamon! I didn't make the fries homemade but made the ore ida straight fries "simply sweet potato" ones - so good and easy!
Do you find GI and digestion as interesting as I do?
Do you take probiotics? Any favorite brand?
What is your favorite thing to bake?
Have you made sweet potatoes like this? and any other "odd" food combinations to share?
