Craig L from UASure helped me sort out the orders, so the test strips should now be on their way. Great to see a company who invests in having people in customer support. Yet another reason to shop directly with them.
Mark my words, in two to three years the shopping cart software will have got enough sophisticated that companies who use persons to build customer relations will start to eat into Amazons market share.
Breakfast: Rice with fermented soy beans and nori (the green stuff around sushi). Fermenting beans, that sounds like a good way of adding purines to a high-purine food. And nori is not seaweed as it is typically labelled, but a kind of microscopic animal (think plankton) which is really purine-rich. At least the miso soup had plenty of vegetables (although miso is also fermented soy beans).
Lunch: Same as yesterday - cabbage, onion and cauliflower stew with tofu "gammo" (like a big tofu burger). But today I sprinkled some gorgonzola cheese on top before I put it in the microwave. YUM-MY!
And then I had French toast (leftovers) with banana and lingonberry jam for dessert.
Snack: An apple and crackers.
Dinner: Soup and some leftover French toast.
Todays supplements and dosage: Aojiru in a banana smoothie. Very tasty!
Todays UA reading: 7.5 mg/dL. Same diet as yesterday should take me below 6.8, I hope. Maybe I can have a glass of wine when my UA has gone down a bit. And stayed down for a while.
Todays step count: 13939 steps
How much did I drink today?: Coffee (with milk) 1 liter, tea 1.5 liter, water 1.5 liter, smoothie 0.5 liter. 4.5 liters, comes to about 1 1/4 US gallon.
