recently I was working with a naturopath to try and figure out what it is that I have sensitivities too and therefore a frequent upset stomach. she told me to give an elimination diet a try.. basically you cut out almost everything and then bring back each food one at a time. during my time on the diet this is what I was eating... for for the iphone quality.
a lot of guacamole and brown rice cakes...
avocado pesto pasta...
and lots of oatmeal, veggies and hummus, fruit with almond butter and smoothies.
my favourite smoothie that I turned into a daily meal was
*handful of spinach
*berries- most often blueberries/blackberries
after I was able to eat bananas again(had to cut them out for diet) I would make the exact same smoothie with a frozen banana and it was even better. smoothies are becoming a staple in this house- so quick and easy.
I learned a lot from doing the diet and unfortunately(or fortunately maybe..) I had to make adjustments because I am going to be at sea starting next week where I can't really continue with it. for now I am off wheat/gluten because that seems to really help. I am eating more whole foods and really trying to cut down on the sugar and I am finding myself feeling a lot better.
wishing you all a happy friday!! I'm off for a busy weekend of yogathoning and running my first 10k- exciting!!
