Colon Free Food Diary: Day the Fourth!

Posted Sep 23 2012 10:43am

And on the fourth day…I created chili!


Wake up: 9:30 a.m. (How I love sleeping in on the weekend. It is so glorious, isn’t it?)

Bathroom Visit: 9:35 a.m. Consistency: Normal

Breakfast: 10:00 a.m.
“And how are we feeling?”: Energized. Ready to rock and roll. Tim is still sleeping. Poor guy fell asleep on the couch and stumbled into bed around 6 a.m. On the up side, I got the whole bed to myself! ;)
What’s on the Menu 1 container TJ’s organic strawberry probiotic nonfat yogurt

1 8 oz. glass of TJ’s peach mango juice

Vitamins: 2 One-A-Day Multivitamin Gummies

Tim and I paid a visit to our local Dominick’s to prepare for the epic chili experiment. There was even more pressure, because we had taste testers in the form of a couple foodie friends joining us. I bought more food than I needed, but not a crumb went to waste (Okay, well maybe a crumb or two. Can’t catch ‘em all!).

Lunch: (if you can call it that) 1:30 p.m.
“And how are we feeling?”: Stellar. Unbelievably stellar. Bring on the chili.
What’s on the Menu 1 8 oz. glass of Toasted Head Untamed Red Wine
1 cup red seedless grapes
1/2 French baguette (yup, we each ate half a baguette while cooking. No shame. We love carbs.)
I don’t know how much Brie I ate but it was absolutely delicious! I might regret it later.

Tim is so sad because he can’t find Dog Fish Head Pumpkin Ale anywhere. He opted instead to purchase Magic Hat’s Seasonal Beer “Hex”. Although I don’t really drink beer, I tried a bit. Not too bad, can’t really describe it (I’m not as much of a pro about craft beers as he is). Not too hoppy like most other beers. Very light, with a kick of Ocktoberfest in it, I suppose. It was tasty business, let’s just leave it at that.
The chili cooking commenced with great gusto. I feel like I was playing it very safe, but it still turned out amazing. I have to tweak the recipe a bit more before I attempt it again. It hit the spot though: warm, comforting, a little sweet and salty, chunky, but not spicy, and there were no beans involved. General consensus was that I had hints of the flavors but that I shouldn’t be shy with my spices. I am going to try it again and if I am satisfied I will post it. I could never ever eat chili before when I was sick and was always afraid to try after my surgery. But it sat rather well all things considered!

Bathroom Visit: 3:30 p.m. Consistency: Normal, Super Gassy (Cheese. It was so worth it)

Dinner: 5:00 p.m.
“And how are we feeling?”: Hungry. Nervous. Hope it turns out.
What’s on the Menu 1 cup homemade chicken chili (topped with 2 tbsp freshly chopped green onions and 1 tbsp TJ’s grated sharp cheddar)
1 slice cornbread
1 8 oz. glass of Toasted Head Untamed Red Wine
1 16 oz. glass of water (filtered)

Bathroom Visit: 7:30 p.m. Consistency: Runny, Gassy
1 16 oz. glass of water (filtered)

Bathroom Visit: 10:00 p.m. Consistency: Normal, Slightly gassy
1 8 oz. cup of Jasmine Green Tea

Bedtime: 11:45 p.m.

Bathroom Visit Tally: 4

We spent the rest of the evening playing board games with friends. Tim and I also decided to bake chocolate chip banana cookies after they left (The best dessert ever. No joke.) for some friends who are having us over for lunch tomorrow. I love weekends. :D Enjoy yours!
