After getting up to deal with her, I began my now normal morning routine:
- A moment of prayer and reading from the Bible. Actually, I have grown accustomed to using the website Biblegateway.com for this purpose. It is nice to use the concordance feature to easily find passages dealing with a particular word or phrase.
- I start my supplement regimen with one capsule of Primal Defense Ultra. This is produced by Garden of Life - the company founded be Jordan Rubin, the author of The Maker's Diet. It is a high potency, broad-spectrum probiotic formula, providing a 15 billion live cell count of 13 species of beneficial cultures including soil-based probiotics called Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs).
- Next, I take my daily serving of VIDACELL. While I could mix this with my breakfast, it is recommended that it be consumed on an empty stomach for better absorption - no other nutrients competing with it.
- Finally, I have breakfast. Today, I decided to have some of the yogurt that I made last week mixed with some raspberries, flax seeds, and raw honey. With breakfast, I took 2 capsules of Omega-Zyme Ultra. This is a new addition to my supplements and it is another product from Garden of Life.
Upon waking up - again - I decided to get some exercise in with the Wii Fit Plus. I put in a little over an hour and a half!
Lunch consisted of a yogurt smoothie. Nothing dramatic, but I used the last serving of my yogurt so I needed to make more - hence, the next activity for the day. I tried a slightly different procedure this time. I stuck to the individual jelly jars rather than making one large batch. However, instead of heating and mixing the milk and yogurt starter in one pan, I simply put the milk right in the jars and warmed them in the Crock-Pot. After it reached the proper temperature I mixed 1 Tbsp. of yogurt into each jar, covered the jars, and set the temperature to 'keep warm' to let them incubate. They should be ready to transfer to the refrigerator around 11:00 PM tonight. Hopefully, this change of procedure won't have a negative effect on the outcome.
