Day 22: Elimination Diet

I think I am really getting to the point where I'm feeling mostly okay with the ED. There are a few more things I wish I could add in right now, but just minor things, like nightshades and soy and vinegar. Oh, I would like to be able to eat corn, too. But the biggies, that I used to eat a ton of-- wheat and dairy--I honestly don't miss. I am sure at some point I would kill for a slice of pizza, but right now, I'm just fine.

It's almost become a fun game to see how many different kinds of fruits and vegetables I can eat in a day. Today it was: raisins (grapes!), banana, zucchini, bok choy, carrot, broccoli, onion, garlic, avocado, mango, raspberries, blueberries, lime. I think that's it. Not too shabby!

Today I tried something that was a supreme failure. Back when I started the ED I bought a box of ground rice cereal-- basically cream of wheat only with rice. I tried it today and oh my, it was really gross. I doused it in maple syrup and rice milk (I decided to add rice milk in) and that didn't help much. The second half of my lunch was left-over fried rice with garbanzos and avocado. Dinner was stir-fry with rice noodles. Snack tonight was homemade sorbet and then for a late night snack I warmed up some left-over stir-fry with lots more bok choy added in.

Lately I've been noticing headaches coming on but never materializing. Before starting the ED I used to get frequent canker sores. I haven't gotten one since starting but I feel like another one is coming on.

  1. hey Sybil are you eating celery? I don't see it on any list and since I want to challenge onion and garlic I was going to replace them with celery.

    I'm looking at the lists and confused. If they appear on the same line do you introduce them at the same time or wait three days between each one?
