Elimination Diet, Day 55 (Wheat)

Wheat. This is a big deal. I haven’t been able to add much yet since I didn’t have anything prepared for breakfast or lunch and I thought we had Triskets, but we didn’t. So just 100% whole wheat pasta for dinner. Which is great in and of itself. After all, I used to live on pasta before this diet. I will NOT go back to that, but it is still great to eat it again. This time around, only whole wheat. That’s all my family eats, but at school they only have white. Nope. No pasta from school for me unless it is 100% whole wheat (not hard, since most of the pasta sauces have nightshades).

My wheat that I had was conventional, though. The ideal wheat would be sourdough (if you can have yeast) made from organic sprouted wheat. Rye or kamut are good varieties. You take what you can get. My family buys 100% whole wheat and as a poor college student, I can’t ask for much more than that.

Health
My skin looked fantastic all day. This is good, since I scratched my legs last night and I was really worried about how they would look this morning. I wasn’t able to add wheat until dinner, so it is too early to tell if I will have a reaction, even with going to karate.

Food
Breakfast: Egg Muffin and grapes
Lunch: Lentil Loaf and kale
Dinner: Avocado Sauce over whole wheat pasta, broccoli on the side – Holy goodness. I used three cloves of garlic and I can’t even handle how good that sauce it.
Snacks: Carrots, pear, Coconut Flour Biscuits with peanut butter

Preparation
I made up a large batch of Nomato Sauce tonight. I’ll use some of it in a recipe tomorrow, but I froze most of it.

  1. Great to hear your skin is doing better. I can never go back to wheat/flour period, but at least it’s an option of you. There’s also great brown rice pastas out there that’s cost effective:)

      I’m definitely glad that I have the option of going back to wheat, and I am very happy it is going okay. Until I started reacting to obscure (in my opinion) foods, I was so sure I was going to find an issue with gluten. And I was okay with that, because there are so many alternatives. But it is nice to not have to worry about cross-contamination.
