I eat meat, and tomatoes every day, so I doubt they are the cause, unless I am just in a very lucky phase, where I don't have any flare-ups.
My menu today is
Breakfast:5 scrambled eggs w/ 2 Tbsp no salt butter, and a teaspoon spicy brwon mustard for flavoring.
Lunch: 2 chicken thighs ( 10 ozs) .. boneless skinless. One cans( 14.5 ozs ) no salt green beans.
Supper: 8 ozs pork chops diced, and cooked with 1/2 an onion, and 1 can ( 14.5 ozs ) diced no slat tomatoes.
I have eaten this almost every day, since Feb 1st, and my flare-ups diminished. I had them every week in January, while eating ceral with skim milk, fruit, vegetables, and noodles, or rice. I really don't care what the " right diet " is, I care what works. Hopefully it is low carb, and not just a lull in the flare-ups.
No, nuts don't count as meat, but they do have protein.. for 3-4 ozs of meat, buy a package of meat, and just divide it into freezer bags. If it weighs .90 lbs, just make it 4 servings. That'll be 3.6 ozs each.
Let's see what happens in the next few months. Who has more flare-ups, and what we eat. It should be interesting. I am flare-up free since mid March so far, and that was a minor one. Last doozy of a flare-up ended Feb 12th.
I will go back and see when my last flare-up was, and we'll see who goes the longest in between them, and it will also help compare it to the next one.. if it get longer, you may be doing something right.
