What is restricted?

2 Comments

It’s day six and all is well. I skipped the past 2 days of “logging” for 2 reasons:

  1. On day 4, I simply forgot
  2. On day 5, I chose to watch a movie

So, it wasn’t at all because I ate something I shouldn’t have or anything like that!! Which reminds me, I didn’t even tell you what I am restricting!!! So here it is:

RESTRICTED FOODS/DRINKS

  • Wheat
  • Dairy
  • Yeast
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Red Meat
  • Pork
  • Sulphites

Along with this list, I am also “limiting” processed foods ( must read all labels) and sugar. People often ask me, “What DO you eat?”

Hence, this blog.

I want to show people that there are plenty of food choices available. Yes, you will have to work harder at making your meals and even pre-plan but the results are staggering. I already feel so much better. I have no feelings of deprivation or starvation. I even ate dinner at a restaurant tonight so let’s start with that and work backwards to breakfast.

Dinner

  • 3 chicken satay sticks (dairy-free)
  • White rice
  • Green salad
  • Water

This was a perfect wheat and dairy free meal. One you could make at home too.

Afternoon Snack

  • Banana and berry smoothie with LSA and rice milk
  • Decaf soy coffee

Lunch

  • Whole brown rice cakes with peanut butter
  • 8 fresh pea pods
  • 4 pieces of crystallised ginger
  • water

Morning Snack

  • 1 apricot
  • 1 nectarine
  • 1 plum
  • water

Breakfast

  • Plain Oatmeal with seeds
  • 1/2 cup fresh boysenberries (YUM)
  • Decaf coffee with rice milk

Breakfast was on the run as I slept in today. I had to work too and had no issues with energy and this diet. As you can see, I am eating plenty.

Physically: I feel great!! No issues, but I need to keep up my water intake. I struggle with this but I know it’s important.

Now, I going to have a spiced Rooibos tea with rice milk before bed. Life is good.
