Who knew that this funny looking root
could be the key to my happiness?
When my Cyrex test results came back from the Nutritionist
saying that I could eat rice and potatoes,
I was overjoyed!
I love me some potatoes!
But since adding those foods back into my diet
I haven't felt the same clarity as before.
It's hard to explain.
I'm still pain free,
but the weight loss has stopped
and it feels like I'm working with a dimmer switch,
if that makes any sense.
So I've decided to take rice and potatoes out
and see how I feel.
When my daughter told me that she made hashbrowns
from celery root,
I said "what does that even look like?"
I had to google it before I headed out to Sprouts
so I didn't wander aimlessly through the produce department.
So this morning I peeled it and shredded it
and fried it up with some olive oil
and can I just say that this is a life changer for me.
Celery root doesn't taste even remotely like celery!
So delicious and I'm so not missing my potatoes anymore :)
