MY GUT REPAIR JOURNEY
Great Day Attainers!
Whew! Thankfully I feel SO MUCH better today! It’s no joke when your stomach is bloated like an overfilled balloon.
Add on top of that, a burning in your throat and you just all around feel
I’ve been looking at recipes and tips and I’m excited to share them with you today!
Today I’m going to try the tomato sauce again. I have read that baking soda kills acid. I’ll add it to a small amount so I don’t ruin the whole batch.
*Tip: Add baking soda in SMALL amounts, I mean like pinch a tiny bit in between your fingers and sprinkle all over. If you use too much it will take all the flavor away.
I’m also excited to make a new recipe for coconut bread. There’s no yeast or gluten etc. in this recipe and is Candida approved, yay!
For dinner, I’m looking forward to making up some diced chicken with red bell peppers, onions, and garlic for a fajita-style mixture. Brown rice is also approved so I’ll have 1/4 cup of that for a side dish. See, this eating style isn’t so bad!
*Photo update, this recipe does NOT call for baking soda. And I forgot to include the coconut milk in the photo too. See, I’m a real gal, cooking to heal and sharing my journey, oops! Lol 🙂
Here’s the recipe I followed, but I eliminated the Stevia. I have my own opinion on that stuff and you can decide whether to use it or not. I didn’t replace it with anything either.
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup buckwheat flour (remember the buckwheat from last night? Yep! Just put it in a spice
grinder yvoila! You now have buckwheat flour)
- 1/2 cup coconut milk from the can, use the clumped up portion
- 5 flax eggs (the recipe calls for eggs but at this stage, I’m not ready to introduce them back into my diet)
- 2 TBSP coconut oil melted
- 1/2 Tsp sea salt
- 1 Tsp baking powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Blend together the flax eggs, coconut oil, and salt
- Mix in the coconut flour, coconut milk, buckwheat flour, and baking powder, and whisk until the lumps are gone
- Pour into a loaf pan greased with coconut oil and bake at 350F for 30 minutes
- The top of the loaf should be firm and a light golden color. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool
Final product and thoughts….it was dry but good! You can toast it and add some honey to it and it’s really great!

Day 7 Summary
Day 7 was really successful. We took the entire day to relax, play our game, watch and movie and just enjoy. That was nice
It was great to be in the kitchen trying out new recipes and thankfully they worked!
Tomorrow is weigh-in day and I’m really excited to see if there have been weight benefits to boot with the feeling better….stay tuned! 😊
