Detox, days 37 & 38: soy recovery and beans

Along we go.  No reaction to the soy - hooray? ;)  I'm not a massive fan of soy, but I like tofu on occasion and soy sauce is handy with sushi times, so I'm glad it's not going to be a concern overall.  I still won't have too much of it (especially soy sauce with all that sodium!).

Today, I reintroduced beans.  I totally wussed out on cooking today, and went to Chipotle for take-out lunch.  I had a salad with chicken, black beans and pinto beans, plus the pico de gallo.  Pretty simple.  I was hoping the beans would be more flavorful, but they were just... beans. ;)  I think I'm a wimp when it comes to Chipotle's seasoning though, because my mouth was burning a bit afterwards and I actually took an antacid. ;)  The beans, combined with my inadvertent over-portioning of coconut flour into my smoothie this morning, means I ate more than double the fiber I had the day before.  Oops. ;)

I am so ready to be done with all of this!  Unfortunately, tomorrow starts 3 days of family-reunion-related stuff, so I'm just going to do recovery days for that time and reintroduce something new on Monday.

Completely unrelated: I talked to the manager at my Trader Joe's yesterday and he said my beloved Whole Grain Plus bread is likely going to be out of stock until OCTOBER.  I am so bummed!  Time to experiment with other breads.
