Day 13: Elimination Diet

I'm all out of whack today, Thursday. I think I'm writing about Wednesday, right? Ugh.

Anyways, it's my blog, I'll write about what I darn well want to, even if I don't know what day it is. I woke up today feeling really yucky. Very much like how I felt before I started the ED. Headache, nauseous, bowel movements that are too TMI for a family blog. You get the idea. I don't know why. I don't know if I should blame it on something I introduced or anxiety or maybe I actually was under the weather? I have no idea. I spent the wee early morning having a really stressful dream and when I woke up I was already out of sorts. Of course, did my body cause me to have a weird dream or did the weird dream stress out my body? That old "chicken and egg" scenario. I also realized I had forgotten to take my medication for a few days, so that may have contributed.

So I took my medication and something to settle my tummy and went about my morning getting the girls ready for school. I mostly feel okay now.

On Wednesday I made several lemonade and limeade drinks. Both were made with straight juice from the fruit and two packets of stevia. Oh my, I love stevia. I don't know why I've never tried it before. Last night I made brussels sprouts for dinner. I kind of cheated, I suppose. I used a little Bragg's on them. I don't know why this wouldn't be okay, as Bragg's and wheat-free tamari have the same ingredients (Bragg's is just much more mild tasting). Like I said, I'm a rebel! They were delicious. I served them along side left-over lentil soup with added rice and spinach. I even served that meal to Matt for his supper! Normally I don't subject him to my crazy meals.

I realized yesterday, as well, that there are a few ED questions I have that I don't know where to find the answers. For instance, when do I get to add back in vinegar? It's on my no-no list but is never included in the list for things to add back in. Hmmm. There are a few thing like that but I'm a little fuzzy right now.
