Over the weekend, I abandoned meat, and sad to say, it really helped. This week I have been eating ground turkey and that went pretty well.
I'll be honest, it's discouraging how few things are agreeing with me. My criterion is pretty strict. If I bloat or my tummy dances all over the place, that's it. I don't have to get diarrhea from a food to decide that it is not for me. It took me several days to realize that chicken was a culprit. What do they call that? Oh,yeah, denial.
What southerner wants to live without chicken.
So my list as of now includes: salmon, ground turkey, carrots, rice, egg noodles in moderation, flour tortillas, Daiya shredded cheddar and Daiya yogurt, grape juice, herbal tea, Lactaid Milk, Jello, Cool Whip, Marshmallows, and pretzels.
No fruit or vegetable except carrots has passed my test. Butternut squash is on the menu for tonight. I even found that mashed potatoes disagreed with me.
The good news? I'm back to completely normal. My belly is nice and flat. Well, as flat as it ever gets after being cut open twice.
Today I am going to shop for a new smoothie recipe. Wish me luck!
More later. Thanks, Heather
