Are You Ready For Another Life?

Everything is different now.

Volume three.

Today's food:

eggwhites and flax oil: 165

1 cup cottage cheese: 160
100g kale: 50
1 teaspoon flax oil + 1 tablespoon olive oil: 80

2 tablespoons brewers yeast in two cups of free range organic chicken broth
with half a bag of frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrots: 265

glass of red wine: 100
hazelnuts: 100 (yes, I still have nuts in my freezer. I'm not anti-nut, I just prefer flax oil for omega 3 balance. as they say, everything is different now.)

Software says: 920
P:F:C 51-29-20
90% calcium, 48% iron, 35% zinc, 39% panto acid. Way over 100% on everything else -- way, way over on some.

403% copper? Huh? Where's that coming from? MR -- what's up with my zinc and copper balance? You may need to write a guest issue on that topic.

I am finding it comforting to be back with my happy foods. The eggwhites were so delicious this morning! And my brewers yeast soup... yum!

CR is a different kind of life, but I can't imagine going back to how I was before.

I am still listening to "Everything Is Different Now."

    Brewer's yeast has lots of copper. Are you sure you are entering quantities correctly? Powder tablespoons weigh a lot less than liquid. I was using yeast to get my B vitamins up - but then I am really allergic to it and it breaks my face out. Without yeast, you would be struggling to make 100% of the Bs.
