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.
