split peas are not a win

I made such a delicious split pea soup last night, with a side of honey/butter GF cornbread. I was so disappointed that it was pretty much gone after the family had eaten, I was hoping for leftovers! Today, however, I’m so bloated and gassy it’s gross. I guess legumes are not my friend, at least not in heaping bowlfuls.

Another thing that has not been my friend recently is my Instant Pot. It leaks steam, doesn’t seem to seal correctly, and when it finally does seal, the additional warming time is causing things to dry out. Quite possibly I need to replace the rubber ring on the lid, I think it may be stretched out.

I’m going to make a batch of my favorite almond butter Flour-less Chocolate Chip Cookies to take to work I think. I’m hoping to share my new love of healthier food options with more people, and I brought up these cookies with co-workers and the result was a great interest. These are absolutely my favorite “healthy” baked good alternatives so far, really satisfying my sweet-tooth!

I’m still hovering at 9 lb weight loss, with fluctuations bringing me to that 10 lb mark sometimes. I have fallen off the wagon with the work outs… somebody pull me back on!

  1. I haven’t tried split peas, as I’ve never like them, but I can’t do kidney beans. I’m generally fine with most other beans. Have you tried digestive enzymes?
