I'm certainly less swollen from my oral surgery. I'm still careful about what and how I eat. I can't bite with my incisors, so everything has to be on a fork to eat.

I went to dinner with friends on Friday. We went to our usual place, which has sushi, burgers, pasta and fish dishes, most is a fusion of Asian and American fare. I almost always get sushi. They have a few sashimi dishes that work pretty well with Keto. Last night I had my favorite roll. They use the salmon as the wrapper, and put avocado and cucumber inside that a thin jalapeño and dab of spicy sauce. So good! I tried two new "rolls" as well. They have a "deconstructed tuna roll" where they just stack the ingredients up into a tower. I ordered that without the rice and also a Poke bowl without the rice. Both were tasty and were a bit higher in fat than other sashimi options they've had with avocado being in the mix along with one of the sauces. It was really good. And I declined the dessert offered. It was a great night out.

Today I was alone with both kids for 9 hours. By 5 hours in I felt myself feeling the stress that was formerly the normal state of life for us. I literally felt the want for food to soothe and desire for something comforting. I shut that down! I perhaps had a bit too much protein today, but I did not go over carbs and I did not give in to the stress induced desires.

Anyway, mostly better couple of days.

    Hang there, Pippa! Wanting food in stressful moments (or sad, or angry, or ...), happens to me too. I discover very recently that if I open my Yoga mat and do Sun Salutations (Súper modified), I feel better and forget about the food.
