Safe List... so far

I am finally reaching the end of my safe list foods. This week I tried beets. They made me gurgle a bit; but they caused no bloating, cramping, or other symptoms. I have also noticed that time of day has an effect on me and when I eat certain foods. I don't seem to be able to tolerate any type of grain after lunch, not even rice. I stick with fish or turkey burgers and vegetables for dinner.

Here's what I can have:
rice & rice noodles
beets, carrots, seedless squash, black olives
Lactaid products, Daiya products, and dairy in moderation with Lactaid tablet
fish, ground turkey
dairy-free condiments
gelatin, pretzels, hard candy
herbal tea, no-pulp juices, water

Here's what I still need to try on the "safe list":
asparagus tips, mushrooms, and spinach
melon, applesauce, and avocado
peanut butter and eggs
plain cakes, cookies, and vanilla wafers

Here's what didn't work, even if I had high hopes at first:
bread and egg noodles
green beans
banana and canned pears
chicken and pork

I'm a little afraid to try green vegetables and other fruits; but I will never know if I don't try. Wish me luck.

My husband, who has extremely bad acid reflux and had to have pre-cancerous polyps removed is wondering why his condition just gets worse. He drinks two monsters a day, and he eats these horrible Hormel meals or his latest, Chicken fried Beef Steak followed up with some Little Debbie Swiss Rolls. What could be the issue?

More later. Thanks, Heather
