I can eat nothing mammalian. If an animal suckles its young, its products are off limits to me.
Things I cannot eat are:
*beef, pork, and lamb. Of course, that includes wild game. I had already eliminated beef and felt so much better. IBS disappeared.
*Dairy products. cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt or sour cream. No milk. I am going to miss goat and sheep cheese and cream cheese. Of course, it all comes from mammals.
*Citrus fruit. It is good that it is not Cutie season.
*Anything fermented. No pickles. No vinegar.
*Wheat. Did you know there is wheat in chocolate chip cookies? I thought maybe the chocolate would counteract the wheat. No? I will just eat chocolate chips!
I found a frozen loaf of bread at Publix for $9.99 that had no wheat. I swallowed hard and paid the price--$10.98 with tax. No, I won't be baking bread. I could only get half the loaf in the freezer. The rest went in freezer bags in the refrigerator, two pieces in a bag. The slices are very small and dry, not tasty or appealing in any way. At this price, I will only eat two slices each day, if that much.
Already, I am a label-reader, but now, I read for more than calories, fat, soy.
Citrus disappeared in March. Milk went two weeks ago. Cheese went yesterday. Plus, I threw out the yogurt and cottage cheese. I sent bread and buns home with exbf yesterday.
Even though I lost five pounds in ten days, I don't like this life. But, if it keeps me from dying from lesions in my esophagus, I suppose I will suck it up, put on my big girl panties and try not to whine much.
Do you have foods you cannot eat on doctor's orders?
