stmueller's Journal, 30 June 2008

So apparently my body doesn't really like organic whole foods - go figure.... up 2 pounds.

I had made this really good chicken vegetable soup with a really yummy organic bouillon and had some for supper the day before and then lunch again yesterday. Turns out I read the package slightly wrong and instead of being 1050mg per cube they aere 1050mg per 1/2 a cube! So I'm thinking at least a pound might be water retention (hopefully) and I will be drinking lots of water tonight! Also I'm wondering if I might have a problem with the nuts. I've been having unsalted organic cashews and pecans, but maybe my body is still a little bit sensitive to them?

Anyway, now that I know how badly I misjudged the bouillon I'm going to weigh in tomorrow instead and if the weight is still there then I will take the hit.

Considering how disgusting I find most of this food though (the fruits, veggies and nuts are great, but the beans and grain-things - ugh. WTH is quinoa anyway??? Kind of tastes like something that would come out of oatmeal if oatmeal had a digestive system!!) I'm going to go back to weight watchers, incorporating many of these foods into that plan. Best of both worlds maybe?? I've sure been enjoying my soy smoothie for breaky!!

I agree that you probably have some water retention from the sodium in your bouillon. It's good that you're drinking that water tonight! I know nothing about quinoa......can't help you there. Good luck this week! :D

Bouillon is loaded with sodium. I still use it but I know it has its side effects. Nuts are always dangerous even when they are unsalted. The high fat content make it easy to over-indulge in calories. If you are going back to WW, maybe try introducing food groups individually so you can see if you have any reactions and then you will know what to avoid from the regular food groups.

Quinoa tastes vile if there is any outer coating still left on it. You're supposed to wash it really hard until all the outer stuff comes out---I haven't been successful with that! The easy option is to buy it pre-washed---after all that, it's supposed to taste great, all nutty and nice :)
