This week I cooked up some chicken thighs. I had mixed together a packet of dry onion soup/dip mix (Safeway brand), with some garlic powder, concentrated chicken broth flavor boost packets, and mayo. I the pit that concoction over the top of the chicken, and baked it at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until done.
I had my first latte in 2.5+ months yesterday. I had had a couple cups of coffee a couple weeks ago. I can totally tell that the coffee has a negative effect on my system, and it was a wise decision to give it up. I laid in bed wide awake until 3 this morning, and the kept waking up until I got up at 9.
Now that I have been off dairy completely for about 2 years, and dealing with food sensitives for almost 3 years, I just cook. I still read labels, but it is just how life is and I am used to it. It does take time, but it is worth it.
