coconut is another culprit for a lot of people (since you mentioned the coconut oil in the Vitamin D - we use the same one).
Eat easy things: roasted chicken, baked/boiled sweet potato, rice, steamed veggies, hamburger, etc. And lots of them. We do chicken/turkey bone broth which is high in nutrients/minerals. Stick the roasted carcass in a crockpot and let it cook for a couple of days. The stock comes out nice and rich looking and oh so tasty. Then you can cook your rice in it for more flavor.
You know iodized salt has corn in it right?
This morning dds cheeks seemed less dry. And her bum looked ok as well. Her sleep hasn't changed much.
I have only been taking the Thorne prenatal for the last couple days for supps. And I have been eating not much variety. I still do not have all hidden corn out yet. Those darn rice tortillas have xanthan gum in them. And vinegar in mustard has corn in it?
I guess I am not that far away from the diet that you are suggesting. Pretty much like an elimination diet? You didn't mention any fruit. There are some fruits that I did not muscle test well for, which we avoid. But I have been eating apples, bananas, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries (1-2 servings/day) And I am avoiding other veg that I didn't test will for: nightshades, onions, cauliflower, eggplant, mushrooms, cabbage. Have been eating baby romaine, kale, chard, carrots, broccoli, celery, avacado (that's a fruit i guess).
I am eating almond butter and some eggs. I have taken both those out for a time and did not notice a difference, so I added them back because I need that fat/protein. It is difficult at times because the only meat that I eat is chicken and some tuna. Just been adding meat back in from years of being veg. I tried to do hamburger, but had a tough time with the taste.
The rest of the family will only eat chicken, 1-2x/week.
I have been doing nettle infusions starting this week. It doesn't seem to be causing her distress. I was a bit shocked my the taste, wow.
I also just received my water kefir grains in the mail today. Wanting to add that in too...I think.
On one hand I want to just do the elimination type diet, get it over with and find out, maybe what the deal is.
On the other hand I just think that I am having a tough time with my already restricted diet, that it almost seems impossible to do. I have to work out of the home 3x/week, and I have to be awake and act smart. Taking out more things recently has got me a bit on the edge and a bit cranky.
Sorry this has gotten so long, thank you for reading if you do.
