Day 7 Food Reboot

Waking Up:  Went to bed at 11:30pm & got up at 6:00am with the right leg / buttock area of inflammation. Gas issues have subsided, but there was a bathroom incident this morning.  I’m hoping that will be the last one.

Chiropractor: Head weights 2X per day (10 min. each) + Denny roll 2X (20 min. each) – morning & evening.

Morning Physical Symptom Check:  My normal stiff lower & less mid-back (less than moderate stiffness), turning my head all the way to the left I feel a tiny bit sore.  I did get shooting pains from my right hip as I got out of bed.  But it subsided as I walked about a minuted. I took my Enbrel shot this morning (normally take 2X per week) & can feel congestion in my nose after I took it (quite mild, but noticeable).

Smoothie Recipe (Blueberry-Banana Smoothie Recipe)

•2 cups frozen blueberries – subbed 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup strawberries, & the rest in frozen blackberries & raspberries
•3 large bananas, peeled (I use 2)
•4 cups spinach, chopped
• Almond Butter (1 Tbsp) – I added to recipe
• Cinnamon (1 Teaspoon) – I added to recipe
•4 to 6 ounces of filtered water
• Bee Pollen (1 Tablespoon)

Synopsis of Smoothie:  Now that’s the stuff!  Hands down the BEST smoothie of the bunch.  Next time, try with 1 banana as it’s too sweet.  Makes 2 1/2 Glass-fulls.  After doing this for 7 days, I’ve noticed that my body only really wants around 1 1/2 Glass-fulls.  Maybe I’m drinking too fast or maybe I should just drink 1 1/2 Glass-fulls?

Lunch Menu:  Cooked + Raw Tomato & Balsamic Salad
  • Tomato Sauce Leftovers of Cheezy Cannellonis (Refer Back to Day 5)
  • Pineapple Slice
  • Cherry Tomatoes (2 handfuls)
  • Broccolli, Sweet Pepper & Tomato Sauce (look at 1st bullet point) cooked
  • Carrot (1)
  • Celery Stalk (2)
  • Kale (3 Leaves)
  • Swiss Chard (1 Leaf)
  • Sunflower Sprouts
  • Aged Balsamic Vinagrette
  • Dried Figs (2)
  • Walnuts (Handful)
  • Almonds (Handful)

Dinner Menu: Salmon with Broccoli & Asparagus (Watermark Grill)

  • Salmon Grilled
  • Asparagus (steamed)
  • Broccoli (steamed)
NOTE:  I forgot to take my digestive enzyme & HCL.  This is the 1st time I’ve missed that.

Gas & Bloating Issue 2nd Day Test

I now take Metamucil (instead of Konsyl) 1st thing in the morning & 1 hour before dinner.  If bloating continues at mid-day and/or when bloating / gas is bad, I will take another dosage.  However, it wasn’t bad today except for a few brief times.

Evening inflammation check:  Right thigh & right buttocks area with shooting pains when I twist to the left. Stiffness in lower back.
Digestion:  Much better than previous days.
Neck Issue Check (Evening):  Dull pain in the right area, but I’m able to fully function as normal.

At the end of the night I had to teach WordPress to a new client /  organization (WNOCC) at Whole Foods.  I wanted to pick up the Good Belly Big Shot but the distributor is all out.  I hope to find some tomorrow as I don’t want to skip any days on with my probiotics.

  1. “I lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:1-2).

    Hope you don’t have shooting pain soon, but this is just the 7 day!! congratulations
    1 week is gone. You doing great

  2. I’m going to post more about it today, but I think this all happened because of the Metamucil. It contained some nasty ingredients besides Psyllium (and I bought it before I knew about NSD). I just picked up an organic psyllium that’s recommended by Dr. Mercola.

    The Lord leads me, but I still have to do the job. One thing is for sure, I am doing the best I can and those results are going to shine!
