Ultimate Reset Day 6: Random Thoughts


  • Extreme orthostatic hypotension and resulting vasovagal syncope this morning; increasing my salt intake to hopefully combat this. (note: this is a pre-existing condition of mine, I don't blame the diet, other than to say in "normal diet mode" I must get "hidden" salt from items in my diet .. perhaps the crackers I've mentioned? because I don't add it at the table and rarely use it much in cooking. Pondering what I eat and what I SHOULD eat to balance this phenomenon.
  • Roasted vegetables make the house smell glorious... even if they've charred into black crunchy things.
  • I still have a lot to learn in seasoning my own food without a recipe; watching Master Chef does not an intuitive cook make. 
  • my kids are troopers in the new foods department. They even ate the burned beet chunks.
  • My daughter loves salmon. (and lamb, and scallops, and lobster. She's an expensive date.)
