Elimination Diet - Day 1

Today went pretty well, I'm happy to say. Here's what I ended up eating:

7am - homemade granola bar
10am - homemeade granola bar
12pm - 1 cup kale slaw, 1 rice cake with cashew butter
4pm - 8 sesame rice crackers with hummus
6pm - 3oz lamburger, 4 asparagus spears, 1/2 cup basmati rice
8pm - nondairy mochi ice cream treat

Water: 60oz

What I learned today:
  • This doesn't have to be all crazy new and different foods. I can still have an apple or a banana and be on plan.
  • New foods are fun though. The lamburgers rocked. We even replaced the breadcrumbs with crumbled rice cake.
  • My band doesn't like rice cakes with cashew butter. I felt on the verge of being stuck for a good hour after lunch.
  • Trader Joe's non-dairy mochi ice cream is delicious! The "ice cream" is coconut-milk based and was perfectly yummy. 
  • Trader Joe's Roasted Seaweed Snack... not so yummy. Barf-inducing, in fact. Even my coworker, who eats stuff like this all the time, said they were disgusting.
  • I love kale, but I prefer it cooked. Probably will not be repeating the kale slaw. If we do, there will be more dressing involved.
I know it's only Day 1, but I didn't get any gas or bloating today. Good times!

Sounds like a great start.

All sounds really nice other than the lamb, too strong tasting for me. If you get a moment, would love the granola bar recipe.

So far, so good. I much prefer kale cooked as well.

Yeah I wanna know the granola bar recipe too! I need alternatives to protein bars every once in a while.

The only time I eat kale is in the zuppa toscana (soup) at Olive Garden but I love it. I have just never cooked it.

Mary had a little lamb, little lamb for me thanks! haha j/k
