Tonight’s seafood celebration – Lobster, rocket, mayonnaise with lemon juice, vine on tomatoes and chips. what’s not to like to be beside the seaside?!
I love how so many beautiful flavours you can still get even on a restrictive diet.
Had a lazy day today, on our long weekend break. Although broken up with two strolls to the shop or I’m sure I would have seized up completely by now. In between though I had two siesta’s… Oops. My poor hubby had to wake me 4 times to get me out of bed tonight after a couple of large glasses of bubbles at lunch and vodka!
Dangerous for me really nowadays, especially when it’s hot to drink so much as it all just triggers the POTS and clearly I didn’t drink enough water. I usually drink around 4 litres a day to help keep me upright. So all of the above was a silly combination, even worse I didn’t take my Midodrine in the afternoon which helps stabilise the low pressure.
Tomorrow I will be building myself up (or giving myself another rest) before a busy Saturday evening ahead. I’m gonna get through this AND enjoy it. Looking forward to Kathy’s 40th followed by birthday celebrations with Paul and Clare. I should sleep all of Sunday really but hoping for lunch with at least 2/3 of the kids. It’s all go. I won’t let this poxy #EDS take my soul! (Remind me of this when I can’t get out of bed next week).
Am then on a course Mon – Weds and working either side. I suppose I should sleep well next week – I bloody hope so – typically when you need it most is when the adrenaline from autonomic dysfunction kicks in. So on a positive note a bit of sunshine and fun today has certainly helped me continue to relax.
Usually I’d boil the left over lobster shells and bits up – makes a great soup or stock.
Proteins like meat and fish done simply can give so much flavour and satisfaction and being low #fodmap and better for you than too many carbs, what’s not to like?!
Hope you all have a fab weekend x
