I had a great break after my ERA biopsy. I ate Christmas cookies and drank diet coke. I used bagged shredded cheese (gasp). I gave myself until the 13th of January to get my clean-eating act back together since that’s the day I begin Lupron for the start of my upcoming FET with our remaining embryo. I’m trying to practice taking care of myself in a less unforgiving way. I allow others so much more grace than I give myself. I am trying to stick to the idea that I do not need to be perfect to reap the health benefits of all my lifestyle changes. Even when I was “cheating” I still ate mainly whole, organic, hormone and preservative free foods. But oh that Diet Coke…I know, I know. Pure chemical and pure heaven. La Croix and my Soda Stream are my go-to substitutes.
I had the above-pictured salad tonight. I tried out a new recipe for salad dressing that I found on Pinterest, of course. It was really simple to make. I chucked all the ingredients into my Nutra Ninja and spooned it into glass jelly jars.
You can find the recipe on Pinterest by clicking the link below. I think next time I will increase the amount of garlic, decrease the amount of yogurt, and maybe add more cilantro.
