China – Again :)

I’m back in China. This time for 6 weeks to be with two different birthing families. Baby number one was born this past Tuesday and he’s a keeper!

Yes, that’s a chip clip on his cord. Sometimes you have to improvise 😀

Wednesday my friend Alice and I met up with my personal assistant Rose from Guangzhou. She brought along Jack (yes, Jack and Rose) and they are now married! We went to Splendid China and had a splendid day!

We finished our day together with amazing, mouth numbing Hunan food!

Thursday Alice and I walked across the border to Hong Kong. Spent the day exploring and picking up things that Alice needed.

Last night I had dinner with Lotte, a midwife from Denmark. I wish our obstetrics were more like theirs! No competition for money = excellent care for women. The midwives take care of the 90% of women who have normal pregnancies and the OBs only take care of the complicated patients. Hmmm, what a concept. Their infant and maternal mortality rates are much better than ours. I wish we’d take the money out of medicine so all of us could receive better care!

I also signed up for a month long challenge (see yesterday’s post) and Tatjana sent me this very cool racing bib…

And last, but not least, not only am I going to do the month long Kilomathon, but I’m going to do strict Dukan every day the month of June. I’m committed, going to shed those pounds that creeped back on 🙂

So here’s to a wonderful June… You ready?!?!?

Ciao!

Recipe – Dukan & Paleo – There’s A Kangaroo in my Crockpot!

I’m in the land of the Aussies and when in Oz…

I traveled here last Friday and what is wonderful about flying west is that you don’t have such bad jet lag. It’s the flying back east that does you in! It is summer here in Adelaide and the weather is glorious! I’ll do a post on the hikes I’ve been doing tomorrow, but today’s special is Roo!

We purchased the kangaroo in the market and to me it looks like beef…

20130214-073309.jpg

I made a spice rub with chili, garum masala and cumin and rubbed it in all the crevices…

20130214-073500.jpg

I then seared the Roo on both sides in 2 Tbs of coconut oil…

20130214-073548.jpg

I chopped 2 onions and a nice piece of ginger and tossed into the crockpot, put in just enough water to cover the bottom, placed the Roo on top of that and poured the drippings from the pan on top of all of it…

20130214-073706.jpg

Cooked on high 3.5 hours and bam…

20130214-073908.jpg

Tender, falling apart meat! The onions cooked down nicely and the gravy was yummy!

20130214-074036.jpg

Plated with an organic salad and this was a perfect meal 🙂 I also enjoyed a 1/2 cup of rice and those purple things are carrots!

20130214-074132.jpg

I liked the meat. It wasn’t gamey at all. Reminded me of buffalo meat, but tastier and more tender. I would definitely try this again!

Have you tried something different? How did you like it?

Recipe – Dukan – Momma Sandi’s Amazing Crockpot Ribs

Mmmmm! These were GOOD! And easy!

I tore the plastic wrap off and sprinkled generously: sea salt, cumin, chili powder, cayenne and paprika.

20130204-161304.jpg

I heated up 2 Tbs coconut oil in the pan and put the ribs, seasoned side down, to brown. I then generously sprinkled the exposed side to the same spices. Browned all 4 sides and put in the crockpot with the juices from the pan. I did this 4 times, as we had a big family lunch planned for after church yesterday.

I threw in 1 cup of my homemade veggie stock (any gluten free stock will do) and cooked on high for 4 hours… It fell off the bone and was DELICIOUS!

Enjoy 🙂

Dukan – Consolidation Day 249

Monday was a PP day 😀 I haven’t written those words in a long time! I weighed myself and was up to 154 and said out loud, “whoa, Nelly” and decided to get better control. I think it’s more about reduced activity than anything else. I’m eating clean, gluten-free food.

Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs, coffee, 500 mL water
Lunch: 4 slices roast beef, 2 slices provolone, 500 mL water
Dinner: stir fry pork loin with onions and garlic, 500 mL water
35 minute quick walk
Snack: Fat free Greek yogurt
Bed

Woke up this morning down 2 pounds. Happy girl : D

Ciao!
