Cutting Out Cruciferous

by HEAB on December 27, 2010

So, I’m not sure if cutting out chocolate from diet really helped Summer or not. After a few days of zero chocolate, Summer was still having stomach issues. I knew broccoli was bad news, and this past week, I added cauliflower and cabbage to the list. Yeah, that whole bowl of sauerkraut was a very bad idea. So, now I’m avoiding them as well as my beloved Brussels, but there are plenty of other veggies out there that I enjoy just as much.

Last night while CD whipped up a big batch of mustard bacon stir-fry for himself and his parents, I made my own version…


I stir-fried 1/5 pound of beef and 1 slice of bacon along with kale, carrots, and mushrooms. Towards the end of cooking, I stirred in a little turkey bone broth and a big spoonful of mustard. It tasted great. I LOVE cooked carrots, but I’ve never been a huge fan of raw carrots…unless of course they’re slathered in nut butter. :)

Dearest carob, how I love thee. Seriously, I had no idea how much I relied on chocolate to get me through my day, and so I’ve been eating a ton of plain oat bran covered in carob chips. My mugs of carob covered oats make me oh so happy.


Eating less veggies seems to be helping, and so I might try adding chocolate back into my diet. I’m really hoping it’s the veggies and not the chocolate, but if so, here’s to a lot more kale and carob!
