Depression, lactose intolerance... now egg allergies??
Wednesday, February 13, 2013
So, after a rough couple of weeks, I'm starting to feel a little better. I'm committed to getting back on track today. I've been eating worse, but amazingly am only a couple pounds heavier now than I was before things started going downhill.
I've developed some weird sort of intolerance to eggs lately. It's so sad, because I just taught myself how to make some killer scrambled eggs with ham and cheese. Even plain eggs make me sick now. (If I have a cake or something that is only PARTLY eggs, I'm okay if I don't eat too much.)
Also, I've always had bad tummy problems with milk at night (my 5 year old has the same problem, so no milk for her after 4pm)... but lately, I can't seem to have much dairy at all, any time, before feeling sick. Again, if it's something with only a teeny bit of milk, I MAY be okay... but sometimes even a little makes me nauseous.
Luckily, I discovered that I love Blue Diamond's vanilla almond milk, so I use that now instead of regular milk. And for my ice cream fix, I've found that Tofutti's ice cream sandwiches (Cuties, I think?) taste almost EXACTLY like the real deal. Even my husband couldn't tell they were tofu, no dairy.
Thanks to these new sensitivities, I've become more adventurous with finding healthier alternatives to pretty much everything. I used to hate almonds, now I eat a handful every day. Found some ranch flavored almond-rice crackers to eat instead of chips. List goes on.
So I guess the egg and dairy intolerance was a sort of blessing in disguise. The depression, though... that still sucks. But I know eating better and getting back to my exercising will help with that.
