Topics I've Started

Camping - Frustrations

17 June 2007 - 07:50 PM

There's not a solution to this problem, just want to vent.
I'm heading out to the field in two weeks to do research. I just started last September as a professor and this will be the first time I'm directing a field work project. I'm really excited about the trip, but I'm dreading the diet. I finally have my symptoms under control most of the time, by eating a very restricted diet. I can't tolerate any grains, any starches, no nuts, only cooked fruit or veggies and not raw, no red meat, no beans, no acidic foods, no spices, no dairy and no soy. Not only that, but we will be working in the Mojave desert and we will need to use the limited refrigerator space to store samples not food. The last thing I need is D in the desert in July. I'd end up dehydrated very quickly and it's a long ways to a hospital.
So it looks like the only foods that will work will be canned - carrots, beets, fruit ie apricots, chicken and fish. I really don't want to eat canned carrots and chicken for a week blechhh!! Canned chicken is slimy.
However, the field work will be worth it.
