Today was pretty productive though this past week was less so. But I'm relaxing and enjoying the weekend while processing information from the specialist I saw yesterday regarding my liver.
I had found out a few months ago that I had Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. Most likely from years of being obese and yo-yo dieting. The doctor said I'm on the cusp of having major damage and while it wouldn't necessary ruin my chances for weight loss surgery he wants to see some improvement before he is giving his blessing. So my goal for the next six months is to lose at less 10% of my body weight so roughly 26lbs. Its now not a matter of trying but now to actually do it.
I had five great gluten free days and then I gave in. Tomorrow is Sunday so I'm making it a new start and kicking the gluten habit once and for all. I also am trying to go low fructose to help my liver.
This morning my husband drove me and my nephew to this local place called The Enjoy Centre.
I then picked up happy eggs from my egg guy and some frozen grass fed ground beef from my new favourite butcher that is only three blocks from where I live. No fresh grass fed beef but I was advised its coming so I'll be getting short ribs, a roast and bone broth bones.
Later this afternoon look at what I made
This is bacon jam that I made from this cookbook
Much love & Bacon
