Today, I'm following day 1 of the rotation. If I get everything on the list, there are actually a bunch of options. It's the beef day and black-eyed peas day. There's also eggplant, red & green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, grapes.
Here's the breakdown of acceptable food for today:
STARCH: NONE! Seriously, when I can work in the mild intolerance foods, tapioca will be available, but I don't think I'll be eating that anyway.
VEGGIES/LEGUMES: Black-eyed Peas, celery, eggplant, kale, red/green leaf lettuce, tomato
FRUIT: black currant, date, fig, grape, papaya
PROTEIN: beef, codfish, crab, fava bean, lamb, oyster, sardine, veal
MISCELLANEOUS: Bay leaf, caraway, chamomile, chili pepper, licorice, rosemary, safflower
Breakfast was black-eyed peas with roasted eggplant. I also made some bacon. This isn't the pork day, but I needed more protein. Turned out, we didn't have any beef in the freezer. So we stopped at the store on the way home and I got beef, catfish (for tomorrow), and grapes.
Came home to find I really needed to cook some tomatoes and zucchini that I got last week. Zucchini, mushrooms, wild rice and garlic went in a pot for tomorrow. I'm glad I'll have something already cooked. Then the beef roast went into the slow cooker with a bunch of salt and chili powder and quartered tomatoes on top. Then I pan seared a couple of steaks for Tony and myself. My steak was sliced then I had it with green leaf lettuce and a sliced tomato. Steak seasoned with salt and rosemary.
I still have a bunch of eggplant that needs to get cooked really soon. I'm going to package it up with BE peas and tomato so I'll have "go to" containers for the next time this day comes in the rotation.
I'll also be putting some of the roast with eggplant for next time.
Another thing I'm not completely adhering to right away is the coffee. I still made coffee and had some this morning but I made it really weak. I might have to alternate coffee and black tea from day to day before I give caffeine up entirely for a whole 2 days.
Here's tomorrow's foods (day 2 on rotation)
STARCH: Wild Rice
VEGGIES/ LEGUMES: Brussel Sprouts, button mushrooms, cabbage, cauliflower, endive, kelp, mustard, zucchini squash
FRUIT: apple, blueberry, pear, pineapple
PROTEIN: Catfish, chicken, egg yolk, lentil bean, mackerel, mahi mahi, tuna
MISCELLANEOUS: Baker's Yeast, basil, brewer's yeast, cane sugar, cinnamon, clove, garlic, ginger, hops, maple sugar, parika, peppermint
Any ideas? Is there a hop only gluten free beer available????? Remember, if it's not on the list, assume I can't have it. Like cooking oils...not on the list.
