Feb 19, Dinner: Slow-roasted chicken (practically served with a spoon, it's so succulent) with preserved lemon allioli (using parsley instead of mint) and a freebased version of Cheeseslave's orange chicken sauce. I was so excited about the sauces that I forgot to prep vegetables, so we had the rest of the sauerkraut/carrot slaw from lunch.
Tasks: get the chicken bones on to simmer overnight for stock.
Breakfast: I was served a 3 egg omelet with mushrooms and smoked salmon by my morning-person husband, and finished it off with a mug of warm stock off the stove.
Tasks: Filter and jar up the chicken stock.
Unplanned interlude: While checking my email after breakfast I realised my vision was clouding up and starting to shimmer, a sure sign of a migraine. I went directly to bed - at 9am - and slept until 3 with occasional interruptions by my husband and child to bring me water. On those occasions I drank a litre at a time.
Lunch: egg salad with ham, straight from the container; 2 Tbsp dried mulberries; 1/4 cup crunchy almonds.
Tasks: None! Bless him, my husband made a coconut curry soup while I was sleeping, before laying down for his own nap.
Remarks: This is my second migraine since starting the supplement and cleanse protocol. I'd had only 2 in the 15 preceding years. I can at least be grateful it happened on a weekend when I had backup at home. I really don't understand what's going on with this, and will have to ask my naturopath ASAP.
The orange sauce was delicious, and worth repeating. It isn't fair to say it's Cheeseslave's any more, since I omitted half the ingredients. Here's what I did:
- 4 dried birds-eye chillies, and the 1/4 c hot water I softened them in
- zest and juice of 2 large organic oranges
- 3 to 4 cloves garlic
- 2 inches ginger root, minced
1 cup chicken broth(had none, which is why we're roasting a chicken!)
- 2 -3 tablespoons naturally fermented
soy saucetempeh 3 tablespoons white wine
- 1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
61-2 tablespoons honey (which is a W30 cheat, but you can't have that much salt and sour without a bit of balance) 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
|Got WAPF? L to R: fish stock, ghee, refined and unrefined coconut oil, whey, chicken stock. Busy weekend.|
