Had a really good lunch today using the Vegetable Chili packet. I will post the recipe on the Recipe thread when I get the chance. I got the recipe out of the “Ideal Everyday Cookbook Volume 3”. Very satisfying.
I had quit taking all the Ideal Protein supplements because one of them was bothering my stomach. I slowly added them back in one supplement at a time and seem to be able to tolerate them all much better now. My stomach problems must have come about because I tried changing so many things at the same time and my stomach just didn’t like it. Now I am taking the multi-vitamins, the Calcium-Mag and the Potassium tablet from Ideal Protein along with my own Fish/Flax/Borage Oil capsules, the Red Yeast Rice and my meds (Cozaar & Clonidine). Lots of tablets to keep track of which is why I use a pill-minder. Otherwise I would certainly forget to take something!
My blood pressure seems to be going quite low now. Several times when I have taken my blood pressure it has been as low as 104/63. But usually it is around 121/64 which will make my doctor very happy. And that is after only losing 9.8 pounds! Imagine what will happen as I continue to lose weight. Maybe I will even be able to get off of some of my blood pressure medications. That would be heavenly!
