My mother died of colon cancer... I am double DQ1

Flax is not for everyone, I would check it out before adding to your diet.

I do not eat grains, (except occasional corn tortilla maybe once a week-my weekend indulgence) if you do not eat grains - you will eat a lot of fresh fruit & veggies & meat & nuts.
dried fruits are also a good snack & a source of fiber...

I have also eliminated corn syrup from my diet, & make my own ketchup out of tomato paste - & you will have to look to find a brand that only has tomatoes...

I also only drink water.

Well..Flax is really good for almost everyone. Why don't you post what you have heard for us?
Flax is one of the best things many can add to thier diet..but it goes without saying that not everything is for everyone and we all should check out EVERYTHING before adding it to our diet.
Flaxseed OIL yes..be careful with this..but flaxseed..hmmm
For MOST the numerous benefits of flax seed outway the bad.

Be careful with the dried fruit. Raises the sugar content and most are done with sulfites. It also should be from a organic source as many fruits are the most oversprayed. It's also higher in carbs and calories unless that's what you are looking for.

How are you guys making your own popcorn with olive oil? That sounds really good! I have an air popper, but the popcorn has absolutely no flavor, so I don't eat it very often.

Well..while I am reluctant to say anything anymore because anytime I suggest something..you would think I know nothing since someone always follows with a remark as why not to do.

I actually pop mine on the stove with really good pure virgin coconut oil and sea salt. The coconut oil is really good for you too..so a added benefit and you aren't cooking in bad oil. Win..win.

Everyone for so many reasons should eat flax everyday. While the best benefits come from ground flax..I also use who flax as a great source of fiber. I also use whole flax as a snack as one would eat nuts. I try and see how fine I can chew it..lol

Plus..we are fresh spinache freaks. Down tons of it daily in eggs and salads.

Brocoli, quinoa, buckwheat.

We also do a lot of what has already been mentioned. We do popcorn cooked in really good first virgin coconut oil and sea salt.

Usually when I read through a topic..something someone said will trigger a thought.
Pertaining to the soy milk at Starbuck's.
Here I go again on my carrageenan rant..I do so because I can react to this like I do glutlen..D
I believe Starbuck's uses Silk Soymilk..which does contain carrageenan..which can cause digestion distress.

For a quick grab, meal or snack..I am so into the Humm Foods Larabars big time.

Speaking of Delimex beef Taquitos..I must be blind. I used to love these things..well..still do..but trying to be good on the elimination diet..but wanted to keep something around that I could have if I really needed a fix. I must be reading labels wrong. Is is just these one's that are ok?
