Paleo Strong and Chemo Night

Paleo Strong and Chemo Night

Day 3 of recommitting my life (and mom’s) to Paleo. I rocked it! I made my own version of PF Chang’s spicy chicken! I don’t have measurements, but here’s what I did (measurements are NOT exact):
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
2 tbs hot garlic sauce or siraccha (I like it hot. Use 1tbs first and see if you want more heat)
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 green onions chopped up
1-2 tbs soy vey (it’s a terriyaki mix) only sugary thing I used to give the spice a little sweetness

I cut the chicken into chunks and saute it 1 tsp sesame oil. While it’s browning I put the garlic and sliced onions in a pot and saute them for a minute with a tiny pinch of sesame oil. Then I add pineapple juice (I’ve used real pineapple mixed in a vitamix before…amazing!), garlic sauce, soy vey, Oh and chinese 5 spice. I let that come to a boil and then add it to the now browned chicken. I cook that in a low simmer for about 15 minutes. Then add a little cold water/arrowroot mix to thicken it. Voila! It’s finished! I don’t eat rice, but you could certainly eat this on top of rice, pasta, spinach…whatever floats your boat 😉 We had it with our big honkin’ salad. Mom loved it. This is day 1 of her going Paleo. I don’t know if she’ll make it LOL.

Secondly, I injected chemo tonight (methotrexate for vasculitis). I hate this stuff. I’ve been on it 9 years. I’m so over it. Tomorrow will be met with a bad headache, severe fatigue and an over all achy feeling. Tomorrow is a bed rest day I’m sure. Oh well, it could be worse!

Vasculitis and Wegener’s granulomatosis

Vasculitis and Wegener's granulomatosis

This picture is the key to raising awareness about vasculitis. It’s more common than most think, but there are thousands of regular doctors that just don’t know what it is…therefore, people die.
