Pssttt ... A couple of nuts live here.
Happy New Year! I hope it's filled with happiness and joy, health and wealth beyond measure.
Dear Hubby is off to work and I'm on the computer. Go figure :)
We're just thankful that he is able to be working again!
His only residual problem yet from the fall is that he now has to take coumadin every day since all that bruising of his heart and ribs. He needs to keep his blood thinned down from the bruising so he doesn't develop a blood clot.
Seriously, I never imagined so much could go wrong from a simple slip on the ice.
So now, since the 'warfarin war' is on ... it also means a big change in his diet. No more of the veggies high in vitamin K while he's taking this. We're finding out there are quite a few things on the 'don't eat' list. Also, being diabetic narrows it down some too.
Ahhhhhhhhh..... we who love our sweets and love our veggies and meat ... what to make for meals is becoming a challenge - but we will succeed! Heck, we might even end up healthier one of these days.
I usually don't go endorsing websites BUT I'm making an exception to my rule this time. I have found this site quite helpful in determining what to eat.
You put in your information ... any medical conditions, etc... and it gives you menu ideas OR you can just type in what kind of food you're thinking about and it tells you if it's safe to eat according to your medical conditions and meds you might be on.
I'm making walleye fillets for supper. Now I just have to decide how I'm going to prepare it. Baked, fried or maybe made like Poor Man's Lobster (one of my favorite ways to eat it). The only thing that will be missing from the meal will be the coleslaw. The cabbage is on the 'don't eat' list (for now).
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
