Oh what a beautiful day it is! My hubby returned home yesterday after being gone, on a golf trip, for 9 days. Life has returned to normal and I am so happy he's back!!!! I love the fact that he is able to go spend some time with his guy friends and of course play his favorite sport-rather passion-as much as he wants but my, oh my, do I miss him when he is away.
He knows our eating habits will change now, with the changes I have to make to heal my liver, but he is on board and honestly there isn't much that will change for him.
For me, as I've said, I'm eliminating all dairy, egg, soy and gluten from my diet. Eliminating gluten is not a big issue because there is a huge amount of gluten free products out there-apparently one in four people suffer from gluten intolerance. The major issue though is finding a brand of gluten free foods, especially deserts, that don't contain dairy, soy or egg. I've been able to find so much in the way of breads, pastas, cereals, snacks etc that I can have but there are a few items I haven't found yet such as Mayo-have you ever tried to eat an artichoke without May? Add to the fact, that for the next three months, I am also on a Candida's diet so sugar is also eliminated....thus no cookies and no dried fruit. I have gone from rice milk to Almond milk and love this. I will often have Gluten free oatmeal, cream of rice or cream of buckwheat for breakfast; a salad, fresh veges etc on a corn tortilla or gluten free bread for lunch and for dinner a protein, grilled or steamed veges and some sort of raw vege plus maybe a serving of fruit. Much of what I'm following is very similar to Weight Watchers and I do allow myself a piece of dark cacao chocolate at night for my heart. I haven't been walking the last week as much but still dropping a couple of pounds. I know that in order to help my liver regenerate itself I need to be vigilant in avoiding all the food intolerances I have.
It will be interesting to see how I feel in a few months time after changing my eating habits; especially if I am able to keep the extra "fluff" off.
Have a beautiful day!!!
