elimination/rotation diet meal planning chartMy son and I have delayed food allergies/sensitivities. That is why we are starting an elimination/rotation diet for 4-6 weeks. So we are eliminating dairy, gluten, corn, soy, beef, safflower, canola, brocolli, peanuts, cashews, and some others. Food proteins stay in the system for 3 days, so my doc has prescribed a diet where we only eat the same food once every four days, so we don't develop new sensitivitities. After 4-6 weeks, we will start trialing back eliminated foods. Sorry it was confusing.
So the chart is color coded for Days 1-4 of the elimination diet. After 4 weeks, Monday will be day 1 again. The reason the colors change the evening before is for ease of cooking and meal planning. So I can cook a large meal for dinner time, and then use those leftovers in lunches and things throughout the next day. So if Day 1 is a monday, it actually starts with Sunday dinner. Does that make sense?
