Just a quick update. I haven't gotten a lot of sleep this week, thanks to the little guy teething and general crankiness, so there hasn't been much spare time for blogging.
Anyhow, can I just pat myself on the back for a sec? I am kicking this elimination diet's ass! My only tiny little cheat was a spoonful of sugar in my coffee one day... and DH went out the next evening and brought home a box of Stevia for me so I could avoid it in the future. He's the best!
So, seriously, I'm now 3 days wheat, dairy, egg, and almost sugar free. And I feel pretty good. Cravings are practically nil. I'm not going to say I wasn't tempted by the leftover Valentine's truffles that showed up at work, but I persevered. One of the most annoying things (and I'm not even going to say it's hard) is that tomatoes are on the no-no list. I would never have thought I'd be bummed about no tomatoes over anything else. We are eating some really delicious things though. Here's yesterday's rundown:
7am: mashed banana with ground flaxseed
10am: homemade granola bar
1pm: 1/2 cup basmati rice with peas, carrots, and green beans. A few rice crackers with hummus.
6:30pm: Quinoa and Lentil Salad. This was some seriously good eats. I'm glad I doubled the recipe!
What's even more amazing? The scale is inching down, and my calories have been up in the 1600 range! I guess it just goes to show that quality of food really does matter.
