The challenges of following a diet like this when I am out in restaurants for special events can be difficult. We had a wonderful outing with family last night at a restaurant we frequented often back in the day. I ordered a stir fry with shrimp, which turned out to be roughly a half a cup of veggies and 2 cups of rice in a sugar laden sauce. I ate the shrimp and the veggies and a half cup of the rice and complimented the meal because I just think its rude to do otherwise. When I get back home to Alberta I will be able to tighten up my regime and get back on track. On the whole I did well, its just the meals out where I’ve had to compromise, but I chose the best I could. Here at the house, I’ve had the support that I needed to do this. My family is genuinely happy to see me doing so much better physically that they are 100% behind my efforts to do this. I’m very grateful for that.
I made a disaster of a meal tonight. Its a dish I make often at home. Gluten free floured cod, pan fried with yam fries and salad. The fish wasn’t completely thawed, couldn’t get it to thaw, I finally cooked it half thawed and it bled water, which ruined the breading (soggy) and it took forever to cook. I removed it too soon and had to put back in the pan to continue cooking after we began eating. Ugh! The yam fries which were baked I timed the same as sweet potatoes, big mistake. They were burned. We ate them anyway with the soggy fish. The salad was perfect. Oh well. Win some, lose some.
