You know what happens when you make a dietary change that addresses getting rid of an allergy or something that is intolerant to your body that you have been consuming for a while ? It detoxes. And detoxing is not pretty. I woke up yesterday feeling just plain icky, and it kept up through the day. I am doing the removal of yeast diet with my son, and we are both feeling the affects of detox. Means it is working. Just a note- some of the things we eat do not fit the official classification of yeast free, but I have allowed them because according to energy testing ( it's sort of like applied kinseology), our bodies can tolerate them at this time. It may change as we become more candida free.
Breakfast was pumpkin grains ( oats, wheat berries and barley) with olive oil, bran, goji berries, coconut, flax and crasins. The guys then went off to church services and I got to spend time in my own studies. While doing that i found out more about completely fresh coconut that i had bought for it's anti fungal properties, and what to do with it. I think I got a bad patch of it or something because it was really terrible in taste and texture. Come to think of it, I am now wondering if this stuff was not the pulp of the tree wood instead of the fruit ? I will have to investigate that.
The guys came home for lunch and I fixed something my husband has had a kind of craving for- polish sausage. Son and i had them rolled up in a LaTortilla high fiber tortilla with celery, carrots and brocco-flower on the side. Also included was plain nonfat yogert and fruit salad. We then headed out for a trip to Trader Joes and Borders, and skipped the woods because I was feeling really icky and hubby is dealing with a bout of allergies. I got three books at Borders ( two by Jenny McCarthy on Autism and biomedical intervention and one on a yeast free diet) and we found goodies at TJ. Son had decided that sardines were something he wanted to try as well as dragon fruit, so i bought them for him to try. After tasting he has determined that sardines are disgusting but dragon fruit is delicious !
Dinner was fulfilling another request of my hubby- meat loaf. This one was made with ground chuck and BBQ sauce and cooked in the crock pot. Boy have I come a long way ! As a child and most of my adult life i have eaten meatloaf and liked it. Not anymore. I could not eat all of mine. On the side we had baked potatoes, Asian themed steamed veggies , a green salad and lemon water.
There was no time for snacking much of the day, and i just did not feel hungry so I skipped it. In the evening while watching The Tudors I remembered that I was low on dairy for the day and kind of hungry, so I made myself a snack of plain yogurt with fruit salad and a Fiber One bar with water. Sweet, filling and satisfying.
I am still feeling kind of yucky today , so we will see what we will see with exercise. it is out last week of school as well, so things are going to be a little out of the norm.
