Good day friends! Or should I say, “beware the ides of March”?
Last night we had our friends over for dinner. We had buffalo chicken spaghetti squash boats plus veggies with a Greek yogurt veggie dip. The spaghetti squash boats were something I made a few weeks ago and loved so much that I HAD to share it with someone else. My friends approved too!
In the dip went ~2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt, a dash of salt, pepper, dill, and parsley. I was out of garlic powder, so I used a teensy bit of the juice from my jar of minced garlic.
They brought dessert:
Carrot cake with cream cheese swirl ❤ Plus coffee to wash it down.
Today is day 2 of spring break and I plan to get some work done on my vitamin research paper, soak up some sun, make some chocolate with the coconut oil I finally bought, and take a trip to the dentist.
Speaking of dentist… Remember when I said I started drinking apple cider vinegar in my water each morning in hopes of improved digestion? Well, I am not sure it helped my digestion, but I ended up really enjoying the way it tasted. However, a few weeks ago my teeth became very sensitive and would tingle after I ate. After a process of elimination and searching the interwebs for a possible cause, it occurred to me that every morning I had been drinking vinegar, the most acidic thing in my kitchen. Even though it was very diluted and I drank it through a straw, I believe it was still too much for my enamel. I’ve cut it out and plan on using a special toothpaste to help repair the damage, but I do warn you to think about the potential side effects of various “health experiments” before starting one. But you probably already knew that 😉
Have you ever tried a “health experiment” that backfired (or just wasted your money)?
-Aloe vera juice did not improve my digestion.
-Hydrogen peroxide did not clear up my skin, but it did give me a rash.
-Lemon juice did not dye my hair blonde.
