An update. I came home after getting more black elderberry syrup, and my wife was making chicken soup with ginger root in it. Of course, I totally forgot to cut some off the massive root sitting next to the pot with the soup. Had some with the soup, though.
Reminder to self: get the kids to eat/drink more soup. It was like pulling teeth to get them to eat/drink small amounts of chicken soup (no carbs other than veggies in the soup). We had to bribe them with being able to eat pasta with butter to get that to happen. (By contrast, I love soup. I guess I stopped making it because it seems carbs like rice and noodles just go with soup. Have to find some low carb varieties to make.)
Anyway, even though my oldest got a positive test for the flu, she doesn’t have the classic symptoms of the flu. For instance, it came on over time; she’s really not that sick, and did her homework yesterday (she’s sick enough to keep home, though); she seemed good last night, but had laryngitis. In short, she doesn’t have a lot of flu symptoms. She has some, though.
Anyway, my wife wants me to start taking Sambucol black elderberry. It’s 8g carbs per 10ml, and you’re supposed to take 4 shots per day, so 32g carbs. While I don’t feel sick, since a happy wife = a happy life, I’m off to start my first dose. I was in ketosis as of this morning (Keto Mojo of 0.3 mmol/l, my “normal” for the morning). I’ll see what happens after 2-3 days of Sambucol.
