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.
