Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your
hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:16-18).

Can I do this?!!!

I am writing this as I sip on bone broth for breakfast!  You can read some of the benefits here.  I didn't make this cup of broth.  I decided to buy it from a reputable source.  Y'all!  I don't know if I can do this!  Every time I take a sip I get a little queasy. I'm not saying it's a terrible taste, because I think it would do great in recipes, but to drink… I just don't know if it is going to happen!  I am a person who will make myself eat or drink almost anything that is "healthy" for my body.  I may draw the line at broth for breakfast!  The most difficult part of the whole diet will be finding something I don't mind eating in the morning.  I am not a cereal or granola girl, but I love me a warm bowl of oatmeal with a whole banana and don't judge my pb and honey I put in my oatmeal.  It's not an unhealthy breakfast, but for the AIP, I can't have it!  So for now, I will gag like a pregnant lady, as I sip on this broth!  If I happen to become preggers during this diet, then the breakfast part of the diet will probably go out the window and I will eat whatever I can stomach!

My little personal kitchen helper:

This weeks soup was a sweet potato based soup.  I loved it, but Landry refused it!

 My bacon from US Wellness Meats arrived and it is good!  It is a little pricey, but for the next eight weeks of my life we will be using food for medicine!  I usually cannot handle bacon.  It makes me feel a little like drinking bone broth for breakfast, queasy!  This bacon didn't make me feel sick, which probably means it is something in the processed bacon from the grocery store that I can't handle.

After dinner play time

I never thought I would see a baby girl walk in my shoes!  I remember walking in my mom and grandmother's shoes as a little girl.  This is a blessing to see!  Landry is such a mover, so with the low light I couldn't get a crisp (is that the correct word) picture!

Landry likes to play with chords.  We have to watch her closely! We don't usually allow this, but I had the camera out and ready!

YOU CAN DO IT!! I have full faith in you! I hope the bone broth becomes a little bit easier to stomach in the mornings. And I'm so glad that the bacon is better on your tummy too! That's great!

You can definitely do it! I'm here rooting you on the entire 8 weeks!! What are some other things you can have for breakfast beyond bone broth?? Does it "fill" you up? Or does it leave you hungry shortly after? Stay strong, friend!

The bone broth breakfast does sound challenging! :-) Your picture of your daughter in your shoes is precious.
