Elimination diet day 59: Soy reintroduction day 2: If I don't have any issues I will be down to the last few things to reintroduce:dairy, gluten and nightshades. I think I'll do nightshades individually and first. Starting with tomatoes. I felt fine today, no stiffness and good energy. I had a smoothie for breakfast. We were very busy so I had a late lunch salad. For dinner I made broiled salmon, yellow rice, edamame and olives. It was a healthy eating day that is going to end with cheap red wine, games with my husband and a very unhealthy snack of Bugles. They've got ingredients I'm fine with so far but they're still junk. #eliminationdiet#psoriasisdiet#scalppsoriasis#psoriaticarthritis#glutenfree#dairyfree#nightshadefree#eatyourselfhealthy#icandoit
Food that my kids discard aka the bane of my existence, and I'd be willing to bet is the reason why lots of moms have trouble losing weight. A bite of pizza here and there, it adds up. Tracking macros has made me accountable for those little nibbles, because I know I have to log them or I won't see results. I #flexed my willpower today and allowed myself 1/4 of this delicious mother effing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, and not a bite more, because that was all that fit my macros. If I can do it, you can do it 💪🏼#supermom#stepawayfromthecookie#boutthatmomlife
Elimination diet day 58:SOY REINTRODUCTION DAY ONE: some stiffness and wrist clicking today. I feel fine right now. I think it may have been the pineapple this morning or shrimp I had for lunch or the unsweet lemon tea or just cause,lol. I'll watch shellfish and pineapple but doubt they are an issue. I also snacked on skinny pop. I made turkey taco lettuce wraps for dinner and used gluten free soy sauce. I had cucumbers on the side. I'm probably going to have a So Delicious dairy free (cashew milk) ice cream bar later tonight. I bought bars instead of pints cause it's a controlled portion. I ate a pint in two servings last time I bought one, whoops. Don't want to make that a regular habit! #eliminationdiet#psoriasisdiet#scalppsoriasis#psoriaticarthritis#glutenfree#dairyfree#nightshadefree#eatyourselfhealthy#icandoit
Day 16 no lectins roasted onions asparagus sweet potato first potato in 16 days I felt my stomach blow up . I'll see how I do tomorrow . Still on my 10 day Plateau which the doctor says is good and I feel good 💜The Plant Paradox. #imgoingtodothisnocheats
Personal size pizzas so everyone can have toppings that fit their allergies & preference. My little helper's pizza (already in the oven) is #dairyfree#glutenfree#grainfree#nightshadefree while the rest of us will enjoy tomatoes, cheese, and pineapple with our ham. Crust recipe courtesy of @primalpalate's Make It Paleo 2 cookbook. And yes, our backpacking kitchen gear is currently living on our counter. Don't ask how many weeks since it was last used. 🙊
🍕 🍅 🍍 🐷
Dinner may have resulted in me slicing a bit of my finger off 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ (don't worry I'm all bandaged up 👍🏼) BUT we have tasty #whole30 shepherds pie as a result! 🍛
Had to get a bit creative with the mix-ins as I didn't have any celery, but it was just as delicious with carrots, onion, and zucchini! The garlicky sweet potatoes added a nice sweetness to the whole thing 👌🏼 Bonus: Enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow or over the weekend! 🎉
I love to buy this lean ground turkey, so I won't name the brand, but I do want to point out that weights given on a food package are not always accurate. This is the closest this brand has ever come to actually having 16oz in the package - usually I only get 15.5oz. When you're counting macros or even just counting calories, you don't want to short change yourself on food. Point is, don't trust the label - weigh it yourself if you really want to be accurate on how much food you're eating. Additionally, always weigh your food raw (proteins and carbs), because it will either expand or shrink in cooking and is greatly affected by the cooking method used and how much water it retains. #iifym
I'm sensitive to potatoes and other nightshades. I started playing with cauliflower as a substitute for a thickening agent in soups and sauces. It works perfect. Here is mashed Cauliflower that is identical to mash potatoes just a little different in texture. This doesn't look like much but it tastes amazing (at least to me since I've not had mashed potatoes in years ) I used Miyokos vegan butter and their vegan smoked farmhouse "cheese". #miyokoskitchen#vegan#paleovegan#nightshadefree#veganeats#glutenfree#dairyfree
Making up tomato sauce 🍅 Alas, I don't eat it as I'm #nightshadefree but I still adore the fragrance of it bubbling on the stove. Storing in glass jars is not only easy on the eye it keeps it free from #nastyplastic contaminants. The wondrous @medicalmedium has lots of information on tomatoes and how they are great for the kidneys, liver and spleen.
I used dark green, extra virgin olive oil, organic jarred tomatoes, an onion, a couple of sticks of celery, theodore garlic and beloved bay leaves from my garden. Salt, pepper and a dash of love. ❤😘 You can't forget the love. Slowly simmered over the afternoon, then blitzed with hand - blender.
Throwback to this past weekend in Vegas, and just loving life and this floaty little romper 😍 Side note, I should have visited Vegas in my 20s because those late nights are far less appealing now 🤣 Now I enjoy waking up early ⏰, exercise 🏋🏻♀️, drinking water 💧, and clean eating 🥕Oh well, this mama tried to hang the best she could! Viva Las Vegas! #squatsnotshots
Elimination diet day 57: This morning I had tumeric and ginger tea and a blueberry muffin Larabar. For lunch I had a salad. I snacked on pineapple. I made a special dinner cause my husband has been craving pancakes. They are dairy free and gluten free. They turned out pretty good. A bit too thick for my liking but for being made from scratch and my first time making that recipe they didn't disappoint. I used pure maple syrup on them. No butter or vegan spread which I'm sure would of helped to cut the density of the pancake. I also made uncured bacon and eggs. Deeeeelicious! #eliminationdiet#psoriasisdiet#psoriaticarthritis#scalppsoriasis#glutenfree#dairyfree#nightshadefree#eatyourselfhealthy#icandoit
This bowl feels like fall to me 🍂🍁 Shredded AIP BBQ chicken, kale salad, roasted sweet potatoes and squash.
Mother Nature helped me out with the lighting on this one. You know that eerie look after some rain has passed through and the sun is setting? 😍✨✨ #autoimmuneprotocol#paleo#realfood
bowlinnnn wit the homies. and by homies I mean my plants🌿so much color today, just the way I like it. spinach, spiralized yams, turmeric, paprika, garlic and nutritional yeast roasted squash and purple cauli, avocado, radishes, golden beeeeets(which are officially my new favorite thing), flax, homemade buddha hummus and pea sprouts.
This is the first time ever I have not eaten sugar daily. It's been 15 days with none ! I ate either chocolate ,ice cream, baked goods or some of each every day. I've never been able to stay away from it ,I admit I was an addict, I had to have it. Sugar is in everything even your condiments read the labels .On day 5 I had withdrawals in the manifestation of grief I cried for two days for no reason. I got through it I would not give in. I have kicked the habit thanks to Dr Gundry and his book The Plant Evolution #imgoingtodothisnocheats
Elimination Diet Day #23 : I found these Corn Flakes at Whole Foods. They are nothing but GF, Organic, Non-GMO corn millet and salt. I've been snacking on a little bowl each afternoon to test them out and I've had no issues. They are actually pretty good. Today I tried them with some Almond Milk. This was for sure the worst reaction I've had since being on this diet. I used to drink Almond Milk every day with my cold brew, so that was kind a surprise to me. I got a really nervous stomach, was really lethargic and a bit tingly/lightheaded. Not going to try that again anytime soon. Might try some Rice Milk instead. 🥛
I did try one capsule of the Milk Thistle this morning, so it is possible that caused the reaction. So, I'm going to take it the same time tomorrow and see if I get the same reaction in the afternoon. If not, definitely the Milk. 🌱
Breakfast: OGF Oatmeal w/ Maple Syrup 🍯
Lunch: Ground Turkey Breast w/ Cucumbers 🥒
Snack: Frozen Bluebs and Corn Flakes w/Almond Milk 🥛
Dinner: Honeydew Melon & Frozen Bluebs 🍈
DAY15 The Plant Paradox . I wasn't really that hungry today. I had my salad , 1 mashed Parsnip which helps the gut and an Artichoke with avocado mayo, That was my day . I've had no sugar or carb cravings at all, really amazing to me I've never been able to do this meaning no sugar or carbs #imgoingtodothisnocheats
Elimination diet day 57: no arthritis issues. My eczema has been more apparent. This has been gradual and possibly because I'm not taking my skin supplements right now and haven't been keeping up with a good skin regimen lately. I'll watch it. I had a smoothie this morning (frozen cherries, berries, peaches, pineapple and grapes. Plus fresh spinach, bananas, ginger, chia, flax, and turmeric. Blended with almond milk) then I had a plumocot (a hybrid apricot and plum). It was delicious. For lunch I had a salad (baby greens, spinach, radishes, cucumber, broccoli, red cabbage, cauliflower and sunflower seeds. Dressed with oil and vinegar). I snacked on celery and almond butter. Dinner was chicken breast cooked with honey, garlic and apple cider vinegar, a baked sweet potato, roasted green beans and olives. I used a little of Tessa Mae's ranch on the chicken. Yum!! #eliminationdiet#psoriasisdiet#psoriaticarthritis#scalppsoriasis#glutenfree#dairyfree#nightshadefree#eatyourselfhealthy#icandoit
Apparently the hot rum toddy didn't do the trick or perhaps I just didn't have enough of it? 🤔Either way I woke up half way through the night with a throat that felt like I'd swallowed barbed wire. Tucked up in bed for most of the day but then suddenly feeling ravenous though not quite up to shopping. Found some homemade chicken broth in the freezer, added garlic, fish sauce, soy, sweet corn, spring onions, rice noodles and coriander/cilantro. Trying to heal myself with comfort food 😷👍
More of those beautiful carrots from @aspenmoonfarm paired with saute d veggies, ground turkey and some creamy veggie soup I made from leftover veggies. Using up a bunch of veggies before we head back home.
A few things to get me going this week: basic fruit and veggies, two bags of pecans because they're on offer, and yeast flakes because I finally remembered to stop by the shop that sells them. There's also a bag of frozen shrimp, asparagus and garlic scape mix, a lucky find at Lidl.
The green figs have a bit of a story to them. At the trash collection point down the street I saw a few big fig tree branches lying around, someone probably trimmed their tree. The branches were full of unripe fruits, so I decided to harvest them and take them home. And only then I looked up whether green figs are even a thing, and it seems they are, because I found several recipes for jam. I don't think I'll get around to it this week, because I'll be doing lots of cooking for my upcoming picknick party already, but it would be great to turn trash into something nice.
The average cupcake contains 3 of the top 8 food allergens.🌾🥚🥛We bake without all 8 top allergens, in addition to seeds, corn, and nightshades. We're doing our best to be as inclusive as possible, because life is often crummy, and cupcakes help.💕Note- we do use coconut in our bakery.🌴
Had a fantastic cheat meal @giadavegas. The restaurant was beautiful, the view of the Vegas strip was killer, service was amazing and the food was epic as I expected. have been wanting to eat at her restaurant for 3 years - point is, make your cheat meal a good one! The meal was: Crostini with ricotta, honey & lemon; Fritto Misto; Spaghetti with shrimp lemon & basil that I was able to order Gluten-free; Risotto with scallops and crab; Artichoke with lemon & Parmesan. And for dessert, S'mores gelati and a Tiramisu Cheesecake. 😍 I was incredibly full, and I'm ready to get back on my diet now - because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas 😁👙👙👙
