The celery seed extract really smells and tastes like it contains a lot of essential oils. Which it should since those are extracted for the perfume industry. But if any part of it has any effect on the uric acid production, I have yet to see it.
Todays weather and temperature: Beautiful spring weather, a bit warm in the middle of the day.
Current stress level (scale from 1 (low) to 5 (high)): 3
Breakfast: Corn soup, fried egg, leftover bagel with grilled cheese, salad from daikon and flying fish roe cream (to krep the purine level up during my test of the effect of celery seeds).
Lunch: Leftover stew wirh cabbage and tomato sauce. And still some pulled pork left.
Snack: Aojiru smoothie. Maybe should try that with the celery seed extract.And a bit later a few slices of French sausage. Probably the thing I miss most in the low-purine diet.
Dinner: Tomato soup, whole grain bread, and 6 pieces of the kids karaage (deep fried chicken, but without oil since we have a new air fryer).
Todays supplements and dosage: Celery seed extract from Bulk Supplements, 1 teaspoon in the morning, one in the evening. With lemon juice because it tastes horribly in itself. If bad taste is any indication of medical effect, celery seeds are right up there with apple cider vinegar. And 6 fish oil capsules.
