At the present moment, I have a little more than half a roasted chicken in my fridge. So why do I keep reaching for the hot dogs? With prepackaged white flour buns?<br><br>
I also have some cooked chicken soup in glass jars just waiting to be heated up, properly prepared beans in my freezer, organic butter, sprouted grain bread- but I keep reaching for the hot dogs!!!

I can totally relate. We ate hot dogs last night with organic ketchup and mustard. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I've personally been in a funk since the new year. I did so well through out the holidays and ate mainly TF but when the new year rolled around, I fell off the TF bandwagon. My body knows the difference too. My joints are aching and I feel tired. I'm not sleeping as well either. This is a good thing though because now I realize how much better I feel when I eat TF.<br><br>

Seriously, I'm sneezing, congested, achey, unable to breathe through my nose while lying down- ugh!!!!

Yeah we are only doing like 65% right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> . We eat great at home, we just have a busy social life that has us eating dinner out 2 nights a week and lunch out once or twice. I just can't bring myself to reject what my friends make for us every Friday at biblestudy (usually something involving white flour like pasta). Then we've somehow been having a sugar dessert almost every night for the past week.<br><br>
At least today I broke the cycle today- no sugar (besides a dab of maple syrup in my coffee) and a 100% TF friendly menu today.<br><br>
Give yourself a hug that you also started somewhere today with the chicken soup.

This weekend I was a drop out for sure<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> . I ate at Steak and Shake, which is definitely not on the TF path of wholeness and goodness.

I felt well enough to go food shopping today, and I was able to pick up some naturally fermented saurkraut (Bubbie's) along with fresh garlic and a few TF "compromises" for the kids.<br><br>
We're not complete TF dropouts- I've never stopped making roasted chicken plus chicken soup for Shabbat. Tonight's dinner was leftover roasted chicken with mushroom barley (soaked of course!) and mixed chinese veggies with a sesame sauce (toasted sesame oil, honey, and tamari. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">)<br><br>
For lunch I had two more hot dogs but at least I added naturally fermented saurkraut to them today! It's incredible how much better I felt after the meal when it included fermented veggies!<br><br>
I've been having lots of vitamin C and garlic today, plus lots of fluids, so hopefully I'll have this cold licked before too long.

Ruth, is Bubbie's non-pasteurized? I've been tempted to buy it because I've been too tired to make my own, but was worried that it would be pasteurized and wouldn't have any of the good stuff left. Man, a whole plate of that sounds so good right now (and I'd take the hot dog too as long as it was FG compliant!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">).

Bubbies is not pasteurized. It also isn't organic which is why it's listed on the "acceptable" list from the WAPF shopping guide.

I emailed Bubbie's about their fermented veggies several months ago. Some of their items are slightly pasturized- not enough to kill all microbial activity, but just enough to contain it so that the containers don't explode/leak during shipping and handling. Stores were complaining because jars were leaking, causing damage to their refridgerators and stuff. The only truly unpasturized stuff is only available local to their plant (which isn't local to me!)<br><br>
Of all the fermented veggies available in the dairy case at my local HFSs, it's the only one with a reliable hecksher (kosher certification.)
