I am having a very hard time finding EDIBLE recipes that don't have wheat, gluten, eggs or nuts in them. I am GMO-free and its so hard! I am vegan as well, due to allergies. If I had a choice to eat other foods, I would :(
I have looked at a lot of recipes and made a few, but they tasted terrible. I spent the money for allergen free foods, but I get tired of the same thing every day!
Please post a link or two to some good recipes, it would be much appreciated :)

Well 3 weeks now of no eggs, gluten/wheat or milk or PEANUTS! Soynut butter is JUST NOT the same, but I have acquired the taste for my gluten free rice cakes....*eye-roll*
I am down about 5lbs, still kicking butt at the gym, no migraines! YAY!
I have been watching a few Youtube videos of the concept of "juicing"
You use a juicer and drink fresh fruits and veggies for 10 to 60 days....
Has anybody done this?
I am considering this just for the anti-inflamitory properties that most fruits and veggies offer...especially since of the allergens that I am aware of. However, I would be adding my vegan protein to the juicing due to my muscle mass of about 40%. Ideas? Suggestions?

I have been having issues with gaining weight, bloating, night sweats and moodiness. I had my doctor do some blood tests for hormonal imbalances and also food allergies. It turns out that I am allergic to:
Egg Yolks/Egg Whites
This is just a preliminary test, more testing is to come. But all my issues have pretty much disappeared within 7 days of being free of gluten/eggs/wheat and dairy. I love eggs and peanuts! I love peanut butter toast....I am lost without my beloved foods!!
However, I noticed I sleep better, feel better and my weight is slowly going down!
So going vegan was a good decision, because I was allergic to everything I was eating before anyway!

As a personal choice and body needing a break from all the meat that I have been eating for the past 20+ years. I decided to go vegan for the year. I cut out everything dairy, meat and even fish.
I have found some great options to replace my protein, and made some great recipes. It has been 9 days without meat, lost 5lbs! I replaced some protein by low calorie, non-dairy protein powders and I feel so much better!
I think that I will go back to meat someday, but I feel way better and have so much more energy without meat!
We shall see how things go in the next 6 months to see if I can keep it going.

Got in 1 hour of weirdness this morning......half way through my "Insanity" workout the DVD screwed up, couldn't get it to work again so I went up stairs to my loving treadmill....wouldn't you know it, 2.5 miles into my 7 mile run, I blew the circuit breaker for the room! Burned about 600 calories between the two and called it quits. Needless to say, I had steam blowing out of my ears!
Had a busy day of killing ants (in the house!) and cleaning. Then had to take my car for new tires, and then off to Sam's club for all kinds of stuff for the house and kids. All the kids birthdays are August, September, October and December, so we start as early as possible. Stopped by Home Depot, to see if we could get a new, more powerful circuit breaker for my room, and of course, they have 30 different kinds, we have no idea what we needed so we had to come back to the house to find out exactly which breaker we have. We will go back later today, after dinner. We don't like to eat out, and the kids were absolutely "wasting away" (as my 6 year old said).
Yesterday, I didn't get a real workout in, but boy did I kill some calories. I decided to get rid of some old clothing and baby furniture that my little girl doesn't need anymore. Going up and down the stairs and trying to clean and load everything into my car burned about 700 calories in 2 hours of work! I wore my calorie monitor, just because I was curious to see what I burn in a day, when I am not sitting at my desk doing homework.
This past week I have lost 12lbs! Interesting how the body works! I had been feeling bloated and having headaches for about a week, then all the sudden I get on the scale and I am losing weight like crazy! I was very depressed when I got on the scale and I was out of the 140s and in the 160s, almost 170s again! I was like "OH HELL NO!" not gonna let the scale go any higher. I started watching the carb intake closer and of course I was not tracking my intake properly, like I have been for the past 2 years. Kinda just let everything slide for a bit, but now that I am on track again with the food, it seems to just fall off (THANK GOD!) .
I have been working out, pushing hard but I got to say that 70-80% of how you want to look is the nutrition that you put in your body, and I have just proven that! If I eat like crap, no matter how hard I work, the body just doesn't want to get rid of the crappy nutrition, holding on to fat and getting rid of the "goodies" that keep a person slim once they have reached a maintenance phase. I have been cooking extra food in the slow cooker, to freeze and save for the next day or later in the week. Healthy, low carb, low sodium meals is what I like to cook. When I talk about carbs, I am looking at net carbs, I aim for 25-35 grams of fiber per day.
