Elimination diet - what do I eat?

Elimination diet - what do I eat?

Yesterday i told you about my new way of eating and I posted a long list of things I cut out the first 5-6 weeks. I am on week 9 or so now and I have added back in almonds, eggs and a bit of honey.

First words out of everybody have been: So what DO you eat? What's left? I had that initial reaction as well.

Well, why not show you. Here are pictures of what I have been eating lately:

Eliminiation diet whats for breakfast

My breakfast smoothie. Easy, filling, yummy.

3/4 cup of water
2 heaping tablespoons of coconut milk
1 scoop of raw yellow pea protein powder
1/4 tsp raw stevia (it's a green powder and not as processed as the white stuff. Tastes better too.)
2 drops of vitamin D
1 tbsp of Flax oil (cold pressed, organic)
1-2 handful of frozen organic berries

Flrrrrrrr. Yum!

My smoothie got its own post.

Recently I am adding eggs back in. This is last night's dinner:
Burger patty with fried onions, asparagus and a salad of spinach, kale and chard, cabbage with some organic grapes and a slice of Paleo bread - grain and gluten free.

Bacon, sweet potato, pear hash - this was from a limited time video. Bacon, sweet potatos, pears, cinnamon - fried. Topped with avocado
Tomato-less meat sauce
Zoodles (without the avocado sauce)
Cauliflower mashed
Ovenbaked brussel sprouts
Bone broth
Paleo bread - grain and gluten free

Nov word of the month thanks

I am devoting this post to our word of the month that I do with Amber.

I am thankful for my new way of eating. It tastes so good, it's filling and it fuels my tank. I am now thankful for brussels sprouts. Who knew?

happy thanksgiving

Today for Thanksgiving here is what I am making:

Beef in the crock pot, red cabbage orange salad, cranberry/orange sauce, garlic sweet potatoes. For dessert I am going to make an apple crisp with apple ice cream. It is tastes as good as it does in my mind, I will come back with the recipe :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!
