Back in the Saddle Again

Today is Day 1 of the yeast-free eating program for me and Joey. If you want to learn more about it and why we're doing it, check out the following link on yeast overgrowth.

Day 1 is going ok. It would have been a lot better had I remembered to pick up turkey deli meat from HEB last night. It was supposed to go along with my veggies for breakfast. Alas. So I ate almonds for protein instead. For inquiring minds that want to know this sort of thing, breakfast specifically was cherry tomatoes, sliced red, orange, and yellow bell peppers, and sugar snap peas. And of course the almonds. Yeah, I know - it's weird. But I'm not necessarily the type that gets up to make breakfast. I would much rather get a few extra winks. I could have had eggs and turkey bacon or an omelet, but instead opted for the easy route today. Joey had yeast-free protein shake. YUM! That'll be mine tomorrow probably.

Lunch was grilled chicken salad sans dressing. Joey forgot his lunch today so he went to Luby's where you can for the most part stick to the diet if you make good choices. And he did. :)

I'm about to make a snack for tonight: roasted red pepper hummus with Terra chips.

And dinner is salmon patties which make you feel like you're eating something bad, but are actually made with oat flour. Broccoli. Cauliflower.

So that's my day in food. I know you so wanted to know that.

I just got back from Kroger, which I don't usually visit except when I want to get something really quick - like turkey deli meat. I still don't have turkey meat.

I asked the lady at the counter if she had any all natural deli meat (free of sugars and nitrates both key for the yfd) and she looked at me like I was absolutely loco. She and her co-worker just looked back and forth at each other like maybe they should check to see if the psych wards had anyone missing. She said "They are all natural." "Oh ok, so they don't have any nitrates?" "They come from a turkey - of course they are natural." She was basically saying duh, chica! There was a bit of a language barrier so I just decided to say thank you and not say anything.

Close, but no turkey.
