Low fat egg salad

Each day I am requested by my nutritionist to have 1/2C lean protein and 1/4C fruit or potato as a snack. I hate dry chicken and salmon cups have soy in them, so that leaves me to buy a TON of Free-Range-Happy-Hen eggs. I cook on Sundays at least 3 doz eggs now since I have found a way to cook eggs that are not disgusting: *1 big mixing bowl. *12 snack size ziplocs. *3 doz eggs-soft boiled. *2 C minced celery. *2 bunches minced green onions and stems. *prepared mustard *********************** *boil big pot water. *Add eggs gently to boiling water w ladle or pasta scoop. *boil for 6mins, empty boiled water onto fireant pile if available. *add cold water and ice to cool eggs. *peel all eggs and save only 3 yolks. *put cooked eggs whites, 3 soft yolks, celery and onions in big bowl. Add enough mustard in the to make it gooey. Add plain or sea salt and pepper to taste.

I think it was the beeeeerr...

Dangit. I had Newcastle beer while in LA snas reaction and then "reasoned" that now I could have it. I'm learning how autoimmune works: allegen goes into my body. My body make antibodies that stick onto the B cells, only ot make too many antibodies. I had Newcastle beer yesterday. In 20min my guts were pissed off roiling in pain. Antihistime to the rescue-bam! Fixed. Interesting to a, response to Immunoglobulin E is histamine production. What do the histamines do to my gut to cause sooo much pain? I will need to research this...In the mean time, I will go back to my fav "Banana Nut Bread beer" which my bf swears is not a real beer...Cheers!..have a beer and an allergy pill...

I Loooove LA...

"She LOVES it!"... After the succesful raiding of the La Brea vending machine, I happened upon "The Counter" make-your-own-burger. I took the chance they would have turkey...Not only that BUT humanely raised and killed turkey, bunless, with fixin's and sparkling water and dash of juice. HEAVEN on a plate. LA is my kind of food-town!

Vending machine Nirvana

LA (California, not louisiana for my fellow Southerners): La Brea Tar Pits. It vends unalterted real food AND takes AMEX. The Venn diagram of happiness here...natural snack, credit card and geology!

Sickkn of Chikkn

Im so sick of chicken. Dry. It gets stuck in my throat and hurts to eat it. Yuck. My interest in food is waning. I had some broccoli rice with cheese today and wanted more but that was it-the only thing that put me in a food frenzy. Tried roast beef no gravy. Dry. Stuck in my throat. I hate food.

The lesser of two weevils- CORN in my aspirin

CORN (cellulose, dextrose, "starch") is used as a binding agent to make tablets. Why? It works and is cheap. Thank God for Goody's powder-it only has MILK in it. The lesser of "two weevils" quote O'Brian but I digress. You're not gonna kill me yet, life! You're messin' with a Texan here! : P

CORN in my salt

CORN. Its EVERYWHErE!!! Like a horror movie. Iodized salt has "Dextrose" (corn) as a de-caking agent. Arggggg! Plan B: take iodine as a supplement, but how much? Ah, 150mcg/day. So, kelp supplements-but without soy or wheat...arggg!!!! Solgar sells one that is kosher and other allergen-free. Yay!
