5-13-10 Low carb menu

5-13-10 Low carb menu

- Korean meatballs
- Cheesy spaghetti squash and broccoli casserole
- Tuna on an oopsie roll with tomato
- Tuna with cheese and tomato on an oopsie roll

These meatballs are okay, but I probably won't be making them again anytime soon. I think they are a little too salty for my liking, but they are not bad.

On 5-12-10, I had a horrible eating day... Real burger buns, burritos and pizza... and none of them were worth it, by the way. I am not even kidding... Once I start eating carbs, it is hard for me to quit. Similar to me and alcohol, which is why I do not drink but one or two times a year if that.

I think that I have an allergy to alcohol or maybe it's just my Native American blood that cannot tolerate as well as the "white man" can. I have actually read reports which claim that if I were to eat a meal, consisting of a burger and a beer, and you were to also eat at same meal (me being the Native American and you being another race), you would digest any alcohol first, whereas my body would recognize the alcohol as foreign and does not digest it right away. I would digest anything else first and then the alcohol, keeping it in my blood stream longer.

Now, in my college Anthropology course, I learned that race is not a biological construct, so this part of it does not make sense to me. Maybe it's the environmental factors, considering that Native Americans did live here for decades without alcohol being readily available, whereas other groups of people have been drinking it for centuries longer than the Native Americans. I always thought it was kind of like a negative stereotype about the "drunken Indian," when it turns out, we are really just not as used to drinking at as the white man. Peyote, on the other hand, is an entirely different story... My ancestors definitely loved to pass the peace pipe.

I think that getting on plan is not as difficult, though, if you were just off for a meal or a day or so...

I went to the chiropractor last night and I feel great. Happy Friday! Have a great weekend, all!



  1. Try using a lower sodium soy sauce. Trader Joe's has the lowest sodium I have seen anywhere, and we really like it.
