I went (car) camping for the weekend and everything that I prepared was completely hypoallergenic (meaning that there were no ingredients that are generally known to cause allergic or intolerant reactions). I decided to cook everything in advance and carry it in a cooler. So.... my photo are a little bit less attractive this week, and the dishes are very simple :)
As a side note, I offer this service in my practice through something called an 'Elimination Diet.' This specialized diet is a method to determine what foods disagree with your system. For a period of time a special restricted diet is consumed, and then potential problem foods are introduced systematically. The Elimination Diet is an ideal way to bring balance and healing to your body in a thorough and cost-effective manner. Please contact me if you're interested in learning more about it!
Breakfast - Blueberry Porridge
-one cup of amaranth
-3-4 cups of water
Here is a link describing amaranth, and how to cook it. I add the blueberries once the mixture has been brought to a boil. This dish turns out naturally sweet.
-black beans (made from dry beans that had been soaked and then cooked)
-red onion, fried in grapseed oil
Veggies and Rice
-BBQ'd red onion and zucchini
-sweet potato, roasted
-one head of cauliflower, roasted
-whole-grain quinoa, cooked
-raw sunflower seeds, raw garlic, and water - blended into a dressing (I forgot to measure the quantities)
Kidney Bean Dish
-kidney beans (made from dry beans that had been soaked and then cooked)
-green onion, sliced
-whole italian seasoning
-carrots, sliced and boiled
What I Eat
I want to give you an idea of how to eat healthfully on a restricted diet, without a lot of work, by showing you how I eat! I eat strictly gluten-free. You'll find A LOT of veggies in this blog! I eat both fish and meat a few times a week (local and/or humane, whenever possible), and dairy when I'm visiting family and friends, or eating out. I hope you find this blog inspiring and interesting!
