Well, basically my problems with my stomach and water retention are due to my cardiac medication which I am not anxious to change. All medications have side effects and the problems of changing to a more expensive one is time-consuming and physically unpleasant. Now I must undergo more extensive tests “because it is time to”. I do believe that this is good idea. I promptly went to the store and bought the “Essential Pepin” (Jacques Pepin) and a bottle of cheap red wine.
Breakfast: Homemade bread with extra fiber (bran), flax seeds, and molasses with peanut butter, coffee.
Lunch: I forgot.
Dinner: What I did not eat last night, Chicken soup with veggies, melted cheese on top. My fruit, a glass of red wine.
Snack: Oats in custard.
Recipe from Susan Leishman posted on Dukan US facebook site.
“This simple slaw is a staple in my diet. Makes a big batch and lasts for a week covered in the refrig. Good as a side dish with proteins or just a tangy snack when you want a little something between meals. I’ve never really measured the ingredients, so just adjust to your taste. If it’s too tangy, I add an extra pkg of Splenda right before serving.
1 pkg shredded cabbage
1 pkg shredded broccoli slaw
1 cup or more of shredded carrots
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
6 pkg splenda
1 Tb Lemon Garlic Pepper. The seasoning I use has salt, lemon rind, black pepper and garlic powder all combined in it. Otherwise you can just use salt, lemon pepper and garlic powder to taste.
Mix all together, cover and refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to blend.”
I use Lemon pepper seasoning where salt is not the first ingredient (Lawrys). I use more splenda and Bragg’s apple cider vinegar. Very good and does last.
