I decided to start a blog with what I am eating, because I forget what I have done before and it's easier to have some place to look it up without hunting down all the recipes again. I was just talking to my sis who lives in another state and quite independently has been considering taking her middle daughter off gluten, while my dad who is living with her shares many of my health issues. His are so bad that he thinks he's no longer absorbing B12. I'm hoping if I lay it all out, I can point them there and they may be more willing to give an ED a shot. Anyway, I hope it's ok to share the link here. I only have last week's menu up with a few links, but I'll be posting the rest of my recipes and linking them in as I gather it all together. https://goodfoodfree.wordpress.com/
aubreyroberts - You can do it! It only took me a few short days to feel a remarkable difference, and I think it will be enough to keep me off dairy forever. Good luck!
Sweetsilver - Thanks for the ideas. I'm reacting again today and I didn't have the almond milk, but I have reused some of the jugs to store my water kefir, so maybe contamination? Also the kefir is made with white sugar. I think I'll switch the next batch to maple syrup and find another glass container. Actually, my breakfasts yesterday and today were completely different. My twins are nursing, but when they're done I need to go read labels and figure out what might be in common yesterday and today. Off the top of my head I can only think perhaps sugar? Oh, and some apple cider, but that was just bought and wouldn't have explained reactions last week. I had a rice pancake mix yesterday with home made apple butter on top, with a cup of cider. Today I had some chicken broth (ala GAPS) homemade but with a prepared chicken, kefir mixed with cider and a protein shake with pea protein, coconut milk, frozen blueberries and peaches. Gland pain seems to come on about an hour after breakfast and usually subsides before dinner. I also get a slight headache which goes away at about the same time as the gland pain.
