Pattie is's good to be busier--it helps us think about something besides food.  There is such a balance between mindful eating and obsessing about eating. The laying off of sugar & wheat helps me with both those things.
My work has been slow this week, but perhaps that's been a good thing to help me get my bearings.
I'm off to my counseling appt. in a few hrs.,  and have I a client this evening. I've been keeping my hands busy with trying to finish an afghan I'm crocheting for my daughter's b-day. Not all that exciting, but after the last few months...I'm ready for that.
On to food:
I've made the flax pancakes a few times this week. I don't think you need to add any oil to the 'batter' and I've been using almond milk instead of water. It's a good way to use it up, as I'm not an almond milk drinker, but I do like having it on hand. I rarely bake (safer for me that way), so this very quick 'bread-like' food is perfect for me. I like them way better than the coconut flour ones.
I'm off to enjoy my simple, non-exciting day. Blessings to you all.


  1. Blessings to you too Jeri! And hugs!

  2. I have been trying to keep busy too while I have nothing to do.I just made some pumpkin coconut flour pancakes this morning and they were out of this world. I found the recipe on the internet and I will post later. Have a great day :-)

  3. Have a great day, Jeri. I just posted on Kay's blog about being food obsessed, etc. Maybe you can comment and let me know what you think about what I said. I need to find a balance for myself.

  4. I always find that being busy helps me not think about food. I think I might have been a boredom eater instead of a stress eater. Its also hard to work out of the home, because the food is right there!
    I use to crochet. My grandmother taught me how. I made a granny square afghan a long time ago, but haven't picked up a crochet needle in years. I hope you had a really nice day!

  5. Hey Jeri! I am better about food when I am busier, too. But busier as in out of the house busier. So I guess maybe I should do that... Have a great friday!
