This weeks goals and menu

I think I mentioned that I was doing the paleo diet well I have lost 5 pounds but about Tuesday I got a real bad headache and just didn’t feel good this lasted until Friday. I got to thinking and wondering if the diet had any thing to do with it so I looked it up and sure enough when you do the palo diet your body goes through a detox period which makes since your not eating all the junk that you had been eating. I kind of feel off the wagon Friday I wasn’t feeling good and needed to eat something, I had fixed pasta for supper for everyone else so I gave in and ate some.  Saturday night we went out to dinner for valentines and I had a French dip so I had bread. I am hoping as I get back on it I won’t have to go through the headaches again.

Since I didn’t feel to good all week I didn’t get much done.

I was over at prudent homemaker, and she was talking about being frugal especially with food and not letting anything go to waste. I do have to admit there are times I don’t get to something and I end up having to throw it away, so I am going to make a better effort to take care of things before they go bad.

I am also going to try on Mondays to share my frugal choices for the past week in everything that I do.

So this past week

I did start hanging clothes on the line I had gotten a little lax in using the dryer. I also have tried to stop using the dishwasher. I would like to cut my electric use even more then what I have been doing.

Now for the goals for this week I need to get the onions finished I want to can some plain chopped onions, some caramelized onions and some French onion soup. I also need to get some preschool lessons for daycare I have gotten a little lax on that. I have some pineapples that I bought on sale and have been waiting for them to get ripe, I need to get them in the dehydrator.
