When my arthritis and fibromyalgia were at their worst, the best thing I did was thank God for what I COULD DO, NOT BEMOAN ALL THE THINGS i COULDN'T DO. That worked pretty well for me and I intend to have a similar mindset regarding food allergens.
I cannot be complaining about all the things I can't or shouldn't eat but figure out what I CAN EAT AND VIABLE SUBSTITUTIONS.
I have already thought of two substitutes for milk in my coffee: goat's milk and coconut milk. I could also put these on my cereal (gluten free cereal).
I am having the meeting with the dietician from Lifetime next Tuesday and in the meantime I am trying to elminate the 9 foods from my diet. I managed to make a buckwheat pancake (gluten free flour) without eggs and it tasted pretty good, but will have to find a recipe instead of experimenting...as the result was a bit disappointing. My green smoothie this morning had parsley, lettuce, goji berry juice concentrate, 2 bananas, 2 apples and 1 tbs of orange rind powder, plus stevia, olive oil and water. It tasted good but I do see a definite lack of protein in the breakfast so am planning to eat cod for lunch. I do have a nice supply of Kind bars which are gluten free but need to read all the other ingredients before eating them.
