I would love to know what others are eating daily, and record what I am eating everyday. I have a wheat allergy and am 40 pounds overweight. I would like to put this thread up daily as a tool to help us be more accountable for what we eat, and get food ideas from what others are eating. Wether you are trying to gain, lose or stay the same, I would love to hear from you. Do you want to join me? I'll start:

Breakfast-one piece of toasted Udi's bread with butter, a fried egg on top with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Coffee, cream and sugar.

Lunch-One Aidells chicken apple sausage sauted with fresh onions, and red/yellow peppers, Fresh cut up strawberries and a granny smith individual apple sauce.

Snack-8 schars crackers (yum) with cheese

Dinner-3 ounces of pot roast, 3 small red potatoes, 8 roasted baby carrots.

Snack= 1/4 cup M&M's ;)

Water-64 ounces

vitamins-yes

exercise-yes

Calories- 1044

Protein- 40 grams (terrible)My goal is 70 grams per day

NOT that I'm one to offer an eating plan... cause I don't eat breakfast. I drink coffee all morning and have lunch at about noon. Today was bacon and lettuce ('cause we didn't have any tomatoes) using Pamela's bread and Hellman's mayo. For supper, I had cole slaw w/ homemade dressing and chunks of hot corned beef I cooked yesterday in the crockpot (more cole slaw than meat). And some wine. I'm not a really good example of how to eat on a daily basis...

I think you did pretty good today! Thanks for posting. I forgot about BLT's.....now that I have Udi'd and Rudy'd bread, I may have to have that! Yum!!!

I see you are dairy free. I am suspecting that I am having trouble with dairy as well. I won't be happy about it either, if it turns out to be true. You must still be mourning the loss of dairy..(((hugs)))...I'm still mourning wheat, it's been almost a year, but I think I may have had a turning point recently, I think I had my last big Wah Wah/temper tamptrum session, and am starting to accept it better.

I drink a smoothie every morning with 1/2 cup organic blueberries, 1/2 cup organic Concord grape juice, a cup of organic yogurt, a cup of organic milk, and ALL of my supplements thrown into it. I then proceed to drink black coffee for the next couple of hours.

Today, I had a tuna melt on Udi sandwich bread (tuna, Smart Balance mayo, mustard, onions, balsamic vinegar and a slice of cheddar cheese). I had an organic apple for a snack.

For dinner, I had Tilapia with lemon and dill, spaghetti noodles with a lemon-garlic sauce I made fresh, and sauteed broccoli with the same lemon-garlic sauce. I had two glasses of Chardonnay to round out the whole thing.

You know, I like BLT's, too, but I prefer to wrap the tomato and bacon in the lettuce--it's soooo much better than on bread....and fewer calories, too.

Your foods sound delicious! I need to dump the butter and get something like smart balance instead.

I like your BLT idea, and your tuna melt sounds divine!

Thanks for posting!

I used to eat breakfast everyday..oatmeal with honey and whole wheat toast..no wonder I was in so much pain!

Now I tend to skip breakfast to remain pain free and have black coffee with sugar. Sometimes I eat boiled eggs with fruit or scrambled eggs. For lunch it is usually cooked veggies or a small salad with strawberries, green grapes(fruit that does alright by me) grilled fresh herb chicken breast. A natural fat free salad dressing with no corn or soy! Dinner? A small amount of protien and veggies.

I eat small meals because I find that I do better that way. Less pain.....

I've gain 10 pounds since being gluten-free, at first I ate a lot of gluten-free replacements plus nuts. Now, I do not eat a lot of gluten-free products, my treat is gluten-free pizza crust every now and then. I eat whole foods with little to no grains. At my year mark I plan on having a sandwich!

I like this thread, it's helping with new ideas!

Breakfast - a banana and peanuts, coffee with rice milk and honey, a multi-vit. with mins, calcium w/ D and a vitamin D capsule.

Snack - peanuts

Lunch - I packed homemade curried pea soup with lots of veggies in it, but I had to go to a business lunch and ordered grilled fish, white rice and redbeans and fried plantains. I was kinds of worried about CC because it was a Cuban restaurant (all that bread) but so far so good!

Dinner - Pounded chicken breast with a little chopped garlic, onion, fresh sage, shredded zucchini & S &P. I roll that up, then wrap a piece of thin bacon around it (applewood smoked is to die for). My sidekick grilled that for me wrapped in foil, along with a sweet tater for me (just scrubbed and stuck in foil, it's perfect on it's own). I made him a big foil packet of thinly sliced white taters with onion, olive oil and s&p.

Tomorrow for breakfast I'll have some left over white potatos, a fried egg white (yolk allergy), the pea soup for lunch, and probably shrimp or something for dinner. (I better go defrost some shrimp!)

    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
