Day 14 and 15: Elimination Diet

Whoops! I'm falling behind. Feeling a little defeated about my ED the past few days. On Thursday when I woke up I felt awful, which I blogged about already. Then on Friday I had some other issues that just left me feeling annoyed. I am not really sure what to make of it all but I'm going to keep plugging along because I think it's important.

I've been reading about IBS and am wondering if that might not be part of what I'm dealing with. Will follow up with my doctor next time I see her. A book I read about IBS suggested looking for food sensitivities but that it can be tricky as some people are sensitive to things like the pesticides used on produce or molds that grow on some foods.

Anyways, on Friday I got to add back in chicken. Oh, sweet, yummy chicken! I made sauteed chicken and asparagus with avocado sauce for lunch. YUM. On a side note, asparagus isn't listed anywhere on my ED sheet so I am just going to hope that it's okay for me to be eating. For dinner I made a chicken stir-fry with coconut/sunflower seed butter sauce (like peanut sauce) over rice noodles. Also? YUM. The more I add back in the more delicious the ED gets.

On Thursday morning Eloise and I met a friend for a trip to the furniture store and to Whole Foods. At WF I was surprised and delighted to see a few things in the deli that I could eat! I ended up getting a quinoa/wild rice/sweet potato thing that was pretty good, but dry. At least it was something, though!

  1. Welcome back. I've been cyber stalking your blog for updates. I'm wondering if what your experiencing is reactions to what you're reintroducing. I wonder what the difference is physiologically.
