As I am in pain today I have made some Turmeric Milk: a natural way to address inflammation. All you need is a teaspoon full of turmeric with a mug of warm milk and a drizzle of honey. It is as well to have to have just a hint of black pepper in the mix to aid digestion of the turmeric. The drink needs to be added to your diet with caution as its cleansing properties can irritate gall stones and try to get them on the move.
I think it’s going to be Quorn Lasagne for lunch today. The only meat we eat now is chicken and we use Coconut Oil in our cooking whenever we can. We can’t be sure if it is Snake Oil with claims about it arresting memory loss – but use it to roast vegetables and I doubt you will return to your previous preference.
30th July 2016: I have suspended posting on this page as there is just too much going on at the moment.
28th August: I need to reopen this page and do some serious thinking on what we eat and when we have meals. There is a strong possibility that Maureen’s bloating is a consequence of our diet.
Following a chat with Yvonna our Pharmacist yesterday our daily fruit salad will now become a starter rather than a sweet. Eating fruit following a heavy meal leads to what you have eaten fermenting by sitting on top of food that takes longer to digest.
7th November 2016: I have made one or two changes to our menus including using pumpkin in all sorts of dishes. We are now using coconut milk when we make porridge and it is simply delicious. Butter has now replaced low-fat spreads as we try to use natural products as much as possible.
I’m trying to reduce my belly fat and get back to a 38″ waist. One of my tricks to burn off the unwanted inches is to take cold showers in the morning as that is a recommended method of the body burning off unwanted brown fat. I am also drinking a homemade lemon drink first thing in the morning using half the fruit along with a Himalayan sea salt (tsp), honey (tbsp), turmeric (1/2 tsp) and cinnamon (1/2 tsp).
