I don't know if it was my bear all approach in my Monday Mumentum post but something's clicked into place.
I finally have fire in my belly and a will to succeed. Nothing, nothing, nothing happens without those and I have them now.
It has really helped that the girls have upped the ante and written REALLY inspirational posts this week. There is something of interest in all of them.
It's now GAME ON.
But what I did yesterday, I did before I read their posts, because like I say, something has clicked.
Here's what happened:
I went to the shops yesterday, and I decided that even though I hadn't rung the Nutritionist yet, and even though I don't have a Revital near me, I would just ask my local Holland & Barrett what do they have that is good for Candida... and I am glad I did.
Here's a photo of my purchases:
|Dida for the Candida, herbs for yogi tea and their magazine|
|Cardamon from Sainsbury's as Holland & Barrett didn't have that!|
|Also for the Candida! Also from Holland & Barrett! And tastes like strawberry milkshake!|
|In other news: Aaron's now at the "cupboard phase"|
|Say yum yum to the stir-fry - thanks @grumpinator for the top tip!|
|Aaron's gone "outside" with his walker and doing really well!|
Even though I am only on the 2nd day of the Dida I can already feel a difference. Whereas normally I have to have coffee to feel better, I am already! starting to detox, because today a coffee made me feel awful and that is how I am when I am detoxing. Way to go I am well impressed!
And the ingredients sound marvelous! Love it!
As I used to be a Yoga Teacher I used to love Yogi Tea and as I am about to give up tea and coffee I thought I ought to start drinking it again and girls it is EASY to make:
10 ounces of water
3 whole cloves
4 whole green cardamon pods cracked
4 whole black peppercorns
1/2 stick of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of black tea
1/2 cup milk
2 slices of fresh ginger-root (which is optional).
I double all of the above when I make it.
Bring the water to a boil and add the cloves, cardamon, peppercorns and cinnamon. Cover, and continue boiling for 10-15 minutes, then add the black tea. Let it sit for a minute or two. Add the milk and return to the boil. Strain and serve with honey to taste.
I typed up the above with my trusty book by my side from which it is sourced: The Golden Temple Vegetarian Cookbook.
I wanted to blog about the above because I made it yesterday (with the ingredients I purchased and photographed above) but wasn't going to bother, but as a few of the #Mumentum ladies have been discussing tea on Twitter I thought it my duty to share it with you all. :-)
