Hi Quirky and All,
Thanks for your input here. The diet I am on is to try and discover what food chemicals I may be intolerant to. It is an elimination diet. Due my Coeliac Disease and possible lactose intolerance, the diet is even more restrictive.
The main foods I can eat are : chicken, beef, green beans, celery, white potatoes, cabbage, lettuce, leeks, rice, rice cakes, rice milk, Nutelex (margarine) rice noodles, 10 cashew nuts per day only and pears in syrup. Water and decaf coffee (1 cup a day)
If I could afford it, lobster, fresh white fish, fresh crabs and scallops are also on the list of foods to eat.
I see the dietician again two weeks after starting this. I can be on this diet for up to 6 weeks.
Some other items I could have eaten are just out of our price range.
Tomorrow I am going to make a leek and potato soup.
My husband has just returned from holidays, was supposed to work this week, but his boss told him not to return to work until next week. Doesn't help financial matters much!
I'm cancelling a couple of appointments I had booked with specialists as we just can't afford them.
This morning I went for another walk. I am going to try to get myself out every morning for a walk.
Is there something about the frozen food section that sets you off? Do you know what your triggers are?
Hope you are doing okay.
Cheers from Dools
