This WIAW showcases the adding-in portion of my elimination. Last week, I first welcomed dairy back into my life after my three weeks were up, and the world got a little bit brighter once I had my yogurt, ice cream, and cheese to enjoy in moderation. Grains came in a few days later, but that didn’t go quite as well. The morning started off sweetly enough, with my first Cookie Dough Oatmeal Cake in months alongside a Pink Lady apple. I’ve been enjoying my quinoa flake bakes for breakfast, especially when gooey with peanut butter and chocolate chips, but I didn’t realize how much I missed my oats, especially since I’ve been limited grains for awhile now.
As I mentioned in my weekly recap and WIAW, I hosted my second annual dinner party last Saturday evening. I’m calling it second annual because I hosted my first one last February, and I’m hoping to continue the tradition of bringing friends from different parts of my life together on a Saturday night during a short and chilly month for years to come.
