For Pete’s sake

September 27, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve got a bunch of body pain today.  What???  The most likely candidate is egg since I’ve just reintroduced them and ate three yesterday.  That and the weather is about to change…that usually affects the FM.  But still…geeze.  I’ve been good sticking to the diet but there must be something that’s getting me because I’m having body pain.  It’s still not as bad as before I started The Experiment but not as good as the first few weeks.

Yesterday my sister in law (hi Viki!) pointed out that if I’m sensitive to corn then I have to watch it because there’s corn in a gazillon things.  A quick spin through google confirms this.  Not only corn syrup but corn derivitives are everywhere and called by every name but “corn”.

Great.

I also found out yesterday that my biological father and my paternal uncle both have wheat sensitivity and the uncle has been gluten free for a couple of years.  I guess when he eats any gluten he breaks out in a terrible rash.  Sounds very celiac diseasey to me.  My paternal aunt (the messenger) tries not to eat gluten herself.

Very interesting, don’t you think?

I’m trying to eat clean today.  Had a hemp protein smoothie for breakfast with my one coffee and some herb tea.  Kevin is making his nummy no-tomato chili for the rest of the day.  For dinner last night it was quinoa and diced sweet potatoes fried up in a skillet  with a little tahini and oil.

It was very mediocre.

So no eggs today, no processed foods, just chili and some fruit.  And water.  I should really be drinking more water.  Wish me luck!
