Matthew had a banana before breakfast again.
We went out to breakfast. We go to a place called Eggsperience Pancakes & Cafe. They keep a pitcher of iced water with a slice of lemon on every table. Score!!! Matthew and Mike had pineapple juice (they have some that is both corn-syrup free and Feingold safe 🙂 ). Matthew had eggs with bacon. I honestly didn’t check to make sure the eggs had no milk in them and whether the grill they were cooked on is dry or oiled with some non-allowable oil. I’ve been absolutely horrible lately with all of that, and I’m paying the price. So he had that plus a chunk of watermelon, a chunk of canteloupe, a chunk of honeydew and a piece of pineapple from the baby’s side order fruit bowl (that also had strawberries, blueberries, a couple of red grapes and bananas–so really, she’s the only one that could eat this for a while). I had veggie crepes: crepes with spinach, mushrooms and eggs. It’s topped with hollandaise sauce, which is heavy on dairy product; but there’s a sweet taste to their crepes so you don’t really miss it. Honestly, I could squirt it with some lemon (I know, I know–sounds horrific, but the hollandaise has an underlying lemony taste anyway) and it would be awesome. Mike had (thinking)–OH! The corned beef and hash omelette. And I had coffee. I’m trying, I’m trying…
snack: coconut milk yogurt
lunch: grassfed beef hotdogs with organic baby carrots. Weird, but Matthew wanted to go eat his with the girls across the street picnic-style and this is what was portable
snack: we skipped. Matthew went to a birthday party. Family is usually gluten & casein-free; and Matthew noted that the cupcakes were corn-syrup free (which means he either asked, or they knew of our aversion and told him so he’d know it was okay)
dinner: we had some grassfed Porterhouse steaks. Grassfed beef is totally not as tender as crap-fed beef, but it was okay. God knows it was healthier. We also had some organic broccoli.
