I tried something different for breakfast today. Still no eggs so I thought I'd try a sweet potato hash. I sautéed a grated onion, grated sweet potato, spiced it up and then added sautéed ground beef. On a cold fall morning it really hit the spot. Instead of focusing on what I can't have (gluten, dairy, soy, legumes, grains, eggs, nightshades) I'm getting creative with what I CAN have! It feels so great to be at peace with my food instead of feeling like I am a victim to my Hashimoto's. And yes I'm still eating my breakfast outside. It's brisk and cold but there's something so peaceful about eating with nature, feeling the sun on my face and just taking deep breaths of fresh air. Continuing with my theme of thankfulness, I am so grateful to have a lovely backyard, with beautiful landscaping surrounded by trees and a great deck from which to enjoy it all!
