So, the trip to see my family went really well. On the first day they had worked with me to find a restaurant for lunch that had things we could work with. We went to Ruby Tuesday where they have lots of different sides that worked out really well. I tried the mashed cauliflower and spaghetti squash. Yum! I even had enough carbs to have crab cakes (one of my faves!). Then for dinner, my sister wanted to do something simple like sandwiches, so we went to the store where I could get stuff that really worked for us. It went well.
We had a really nice time with the family even though it felt like we were trying to pack in months' worth of visiting into a few hours! It was a good break, too, except that my mom got a 24-hour bug of some kind. And, of course, when I got home I started to feel sick too. Ick! One of the worst feeling bugs I've ever had, but at least it was only one day.
Last night we made sugar-free ice cream in our new ice cream maker. We used the recipe from the manual but substituted Almond Milk and stevia for milk and sugar. It ended up being S0/C0 and very tasty! Nothing beats the icy creaminess of ice cream!
Even with the traveling and eating out, I still was down this week and so was Hubs! Still going strong on the BFC!
