Last year I worked with a dietician to try and identify food sensitivities. Things got all wonky after I had a very successful start. A probiotic made me quite ill and I had to abandon the plan. It was patient ping pong between my allergist and dietician with a naturalpath watching results.
The plan was to start over after I came back from a vacation in late June. But then I got sick. This last week I was out of town and not exactly an angel. I’m ready to do this. DH is out of town so I went shopping and will see no temptations in the house for several days.
Anyhow, at dinner I began the elimination diet again. It is strict and catered to me specifically. For the next 10 days my menu will consist of: Garbanzo bean, lentil, barley, buckwheat, quinoa, sweet potato, tapioca, white potato, cauliflower, carrot, tomato, broccoli, yellow squash, green bean, green pepper, zucchini. Grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberry, pear, pineapple, plum avocado, cashew, pistachio, sesame, hazelnut, vs ills, oregano, salt, black pepper, garlic, paprika, cane sugar, coconut, sesame, vinegar. Water. Nothing else.
I’m trying this as a vegan. If I have issues then eggs, beef, scallops will be added. Goats milk is ok too. My plan is to have none of this. Vegan. I want to know what impact this has on my body, blood markers etc.
I try to get organic everything so I’m not reacting to chemicals, pesticides etc, on the food. My chemical sensitivity is very high. Anyhow...this is the protocol..after 10 days I add 1 food each day assuming I don’t have any crazy reactions.
