This hasn't been my year in the health department. I can't really pinpoint when I started to feel like crap all of the time, but I'm sick of being sick. I've been bouncing around doctors all year and when I was referred to the same naturopathic doctor by a handful of people I decided to give her a shot. I made an appointment in the spring and the earliest I could get in was a full six months later, no joke.
As it turned out, gluten is not my only problem. My body is so stressed that dairy, sugar, and too many refined carbs are wreaking havoc on my systems as well. Yikes!
|Too many reds!!!|
The solution: a few supplements and a major re-haul of my diet.
It's been a couple weeks now and while it was going well in the beginning, I'm getting kind of bored with what I'm eating. I've been eating the same thing day in and day out. Lots of chicken breast, turkey breast, steamed veggies, and some non-starchy fruit. My lunch for an entire week was a lettuce wrap with turkey and hummus. I ate eggs with pico de gallo for breakfast every morning. I can't even stomach another egg right these days. I've been eating an apple with almond butter every morning this week, but we're now out of apples, so I'm in trouble come tomorrow.
I have been feeling better, so I know I'm doing something right. I'm obviously not 100% better since I just started this healing process, but I am finally on the road to recovery and feeling healthy again.
Is anyone else following a diet such as this? No gluten, no dairy, no sugar, and low carb-ish? What are your meal ideas?
