Keep in mind that I don't have to avoid gluten. My daughter does. I am diabetic, have food allergies and other health issues. So I do have to watch what I eat.

Breakfast: Small bowl of cereal (dry) and some cubes of cheddar cheese.

Snack: Part of a bag of popcorn and part of an order of nachos from Target snack bar.

Lunch: Nothing.

Dinner: Part of an Amy's pizza with added cheese and seasoning. Also raw baby carrots.

I will have a snack before bed. Most likely it will be apple slices with peanut butter.

I realize that my diet sounds light on the fruit and veggies. But I do have gastroparesis. That's delayed stomach emptying. So I have to be careful not to eat too much of this stuff (among other things) or it comes right back up. TMI. Sorry.

I would prefer to eat a vegetarian diet, but tend to go anemic if I don't. Because I am allergic to eggs, those are out. Have outgrown my dairy allergy so am allowed to eat it only twice a week for fear that the allergy could come back if I eat it too much. So I do eat meat a couple of times a week but also rely on beans and nuts for most of my protein.

Today I ate:

Breakfast: Scrambled egg, Ore-Ida hash browns, 2 slices Oscar Meyer Center Cut bacon

Lunch: Trader Joe's rice pasta mac & cheese with tuna, strawberry rhubarb crisp with vanilla ice cream

Dinner: Grilled steak with A-1 Steak Sauce, boiled baby potatoes with olive oil and salt, grilled asparagus, red wine, more strawberry crisp for dessert

Kind of a HIGH CALORIE day, but it was Father's Day so I did a lot of cooking for my husband.

Breakfast: coffee, huevos rancheros with corn tortillas

Lunch: Three-bean salad and some chopped liver from the local deli I bought the other night, corn chips

Dinner: Burger with carmelized onions, rice, steamed broccoli, handful of radishes


Weekend laziness set in so I didn't eat a proper breakfast. Just coffee

Brunch: Leftover burger on a Glutino bagel with relish and ketchup, an orange

Dinner: Went to BJ's to try the new gluten-free pizza. It's wonderful!!!

Now nibbling on a handful of corn chips because I need to take vitamins and they don't sit well on an empty stomach.

Brunch: garlic-encrusted baked polenta with poached egg, sauteed kale

And that would be my dinner tonight... although the precise method of garlic encrusting may turn into just garlicky.

Fun! Thanks all- definitely interesting and I've gotten some good ideas.

Skin prick tests only exclude IgE mediated food allergies or skin sensitivity allergies. They can't diagnose IgG or IgA delayed reaction allergies. For those allergies, blood tests are more effective.

I've also noticed hypoglycemic reactions to eating high sugar or high carb foods, unless I balance those in a meal with low glycemic fats, proteins and low carb, high fiber foods. I can eat grains, but I eat small amounts with vegies and protein. You'll notice from my 'menu' that I add almond butter, hazelnut milk, and chopped pear to my Bob's Red Mill 'Mighty Tasty' hot cereal. Without those additions, I'd be hungry an hour after my meal. With those additions, which lower the total glycemic index of my meal, I can go 4 hours without feel hungry after that bowl of hot cereal.


The allergist/immunologist I went to wouldn't do the blood testing for delayed food allergy because he said that once we eat a food, we develop antibodies to it. His opinion was that they yield a lot of false positives, and people end up doing an elimination diet anyway. He suggested that I do an elimination diet, which I did.

I found that I was sensitive to several foods, stayed off of them completely for at least 2 years, and can now tolerate one of them--the rest, no and probably never.

I take care to get some protein with every meal/snack--the addition back of the higher rice based carbs seem to, for me, cause the hypoclycemic symptoms regardless. :)

I'm on the Paleo Diet right now, but I'm still eating a little bit of rice before I run. This is actually a lot more than I usually eat, but I got glutened last week. Luckily I've been able to manage my post-glutening binging to not eat muffins and chocolate. :)


-Brown sticky rice (pre run)

-Leftover chicken



-Vegie stirfry with Thai red curry + shrimp




-Lara bar



-The rest of the vegie stirfry

-Turkey & herb burger patties

-Roasted garlic



-Red wine

Well since yesterday was much more exciting than today has been so far, I will start with that:

Breakfast: Sausage links, and gluten-free Katz bread made into French Toast (first experience with gluten-free bread and LOVED IT)

Snack: apple slices with caramel to dip

Lunch: skipped because of a late breakfast and knew that a big dinner was coming up

Dinner: steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad!! SUPER YUMMY!

Bedtime Snack: Tahitian Vanilla Bean Gelato...Also SUPER YUMMY!


Breakfast: yogurt with Udi's gluten-free granola

Lunch: left over brat and safe French Fries

Dinner:??? either grilling out turkey tenderloins with roased potoatoes if the rain holds out, or heating up some previously frozen spaghetti sauce with Rice pasta. This is the first time I am trying rice pasta, so far I have only tried corn pasta which I LOVE!!

Snack: either more gelato (who doesn't love that stuff) or I may have some nut thins with some AE chip dip.

Breakfast: one egg fried in butter, a generous spoonful of leftover baked beans, sliced fresh strawberries, coffee

Lunch: Leftover grilled chicken and quinoa salad, banana, water

Snack: Fage full-fat yogurt with sidecar of strawberry jam, fresh peach

Dinner will likely be leftover ribs and maybe a green salad after a handful of chips and salsa. Possibly to be followed up with a little dish of peach crisp or a piece of chocolate.
