We will have soup for breakfast, and soup for lunch. And for dinner we will have broth! - my 10-yr-old son

Day 16

Russian Custard with diced apples and ground almonds, juice (carrot, apple and celery)  (Mom had leftover borscht and juice)
(Full for custard because of the honey, Stage 6 for raw apples, Stage 4 for juice)

Hot dogs, fish patties, honey bread, sauerkraut, raw carrots
(Stage 5 for hot dogs no sugar added, Stage 4 for fish patties, Full for honey bread, Stage 3 for sauerkraut, Stage 6 for raw carrots)
Mom had sauteed onions and carrots with two eggs (runny yolks), avocado w/olive oil and sauerkraut
(Stage 1 for carrots and onions, Stage 2/3 for eggs, Stage 3 for avocado and sauerkraut)

I could eat that lunch every day for weeks and not get tired.  Well, maybe I would but it surely is delicious.  A small bowl of soup would have rounded it out nicely, GAPS style!

Chicken Coconut Soup, peanut butter fudge
(Full for soup due to coconut milk, Full for fudge for honey and lots of coconut oil)

The soup consisted of:
several quarts of chicken stock/broth
almost 2 cups homemade coconut milk
a knob of ginger, peeled - I just threw the whole thing in to give it a subtle flavor
a few pinches salt
2 cloves garlic, minced

Brought to a boil and added zucchini noodles (2 smallish zucchinis turned into "noodles") and simmered until soft.  Added about a cup of cooked, shredded chicken.

At the table the adults added chili flakes and most of us added a few spoonfuls of olive oil which, surprisingly, really added to the flavor.

This would have been really good with some cilantro and perhaps a chopped avocado.  I want to play around with this a bit.  Everyone ate it (no leftovers) and they all said the zucchini noodles were great!  One son will not eat chunks of zucchini in soup, but he slurped up every noodle.

Five-year-old had some chunky/diarrhea type poop again - lots of undigested fruit.  Everyone was mad, mad, mad today.  I'm not sure if it was from getting to bed late or because I made them drink carrot juice this morning or what.  Lots of extra chores were handed out and my house is much cleaner now!

I got my fermented cod liver oil today.  Oh, wasn't that nice to take!  The smell was worse than the taste though.

I need to do another menu plan and go grocery shopping.  We're at the end of everything.
