Oh yay! More threads where I can see what other people eat and glean ideas!
Today I had:
Shredded parnsnip "hashbrowns" (cooked in home rendered lard and sprinkled with coarse flake salt)
Pork sausage patty (ground pork, allspice, granulated garlic, fennel seeds, s&p)
Some mizuna, frizzled in the pan after the sausage comes out.
A peach (almost the last of them)
Tulsi Sweet Rose tea with homemade cashew milk and honey
So, I am still low-iodine until the DH clears. I make nearly everything from scratch as that allows me to control every ingredient. The new restrictive diet was so hard at first, especially for breakfast, as I wake up famished and need to have a good and filling breakfast to be able to face my day. But I figured out a good rhythm of prepping things in the weekends (make sausage patties and cashew milk, shred a bunch parsnips, pick and wash greens etc) and have been eating some variation of this breakfast nearly every day. It now feels normal! I am just about needing to mix it up a bit but have not figured out what should come next...still can't seem to do egg yolks, which is a bummer because I would love some buttery scramby eggs to eat with my homemade tomato jam. I can eat egg whites, but, ugh, egg whites by themselves are just so sad.
