It has been a few days since I have posted. I’ve been delinquent. With the holiday season, I have been getting ready to head home to Indianapolis for the holidays. Christmas Morning we leave for Miami to go on a cruise. While I am gone, I will not be blogging as they charge a ridiculous amount of money to use internet on a ship. I’ll take notes though and I will tell you all about it when I get back. I am interested to find out how I am going to eat LFRV on a ship when I have to have dining room dinners every night. Adventure!
I was in Houston this weekend visiting my boyfriend. I had a lot of high fat gourmet vegan food this weekend: raw veggies marinated in olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a raw carrot cake from Whole Foods, raw veggies marinated in sesame oil (as a “stir fry”) at Field of Greens, a delicious swiss chard wrap with apples, peanut butter, and ginger from the Houston Farmer’s Market, as well as bananas with fresh, raw cashew butter.
The food was great, but something didn’t sit right. I was constipated all day Sunday. I’m not sure if this was because of the high fat content of the food, or if it was a reaction to the onions I ate as part of both of the marinated veggie meals.
Fat: 9 g
Carbs: 429 g
Protein: 32 g
Breakfast: Seven bananas
Lunch: Salad with tomatoes, celery, green bell peppers, and a bit of ginger (great combination, actually)
Dinner: Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers
Snacks: Three apples
Feelings to Note
I had that tingling feeling after the apples again. I’m thinking that their fructose level makes me experience a sugar high. I was able to turn it off when I didn’t eat high fructose food, but when I have apples or pears I get a reaction. I will have to reduce my apple intake or only eat them with greens to slow the sugar absorption.
