This weekend I came across a "splendid soups" magazine. When I first picked it up I wondered if I would find many useful recipes. Hours later I had bookmarked nearly half of them. Now I am hungry for nothing but soup, so this week it is on the menu four out of six days.

I also am roasting up the last of the 30 pound turkey – two wings and a leg. That will provide meat for a few meals as well as turkey stock for all of our soups.

After giving the Body Ecology Diet a try last week I realized how poorly I do with so many grains, even if they are gluten-free and high in protein. So this week I continue my candida cleanse with no grains, no sugar, and almost no dairy. The mornings that the boys eat porridge I will most likely be trying some miso soup with greens or some leftover protein and vegetables.

    I’ve found that I feel the best with no grains or sugar, too.
    I just finished a month of the HCG protocol (weight-loss/endocrine balancing) where all you are allowed to eat is meat, fish, non-starchy veggies and a little low glycemic fruit. I felt so good and I learned to love meat and veggies for breakfast! I also figured out that it’s the grains and sugars that cause my skin to break out.


  2. Okay, you got me at “roasted kabocha & butternut squash.” How does one “roast” kombucha? I am brewing and making my own kombucha tea. Are you soaking the squash in it and roasting the squash? Please explain!
