Cutting Out Processed Foods

Today Is Friday Feb 7th 2014, I have decided to cut all processed from my diet. I am blogging this because I want to remember the date. If in 2 months I am still having problems I will cut rice out of my diet. If two months after that I am having problems I will cut Beans out of my diet. If after 2 months after that I will cut potatoes. I am really hoping that cutting processed will be the answer I am hoping for :) Wish me luck :) So hopefully April 7th will tell.

Not sure how to keep this Blog thing. I just wanted to add to it. But cannot seem to find the tag to add. So will just add to the last statement.

It is past my 1 month "Processed Food Free" I did wonderful! It was not so bad! I still had my face swell but figured out it was my Sleep Apnea machine. Doc said turn the Humidity up. It's up as far as it will go. So I will put a humidity machine in the room.

I had Rice the other day from a box Zaterans I know it's Gluten Free but the next day it hit me. I think it's got corn. In fact, I am positive it does. I have been doing so well .. Yesterday hubbs had something that said gluten-free I said "it's not just Gluten Free" It's corn to sweetie. So If I cannot understand the ingredient or pronounce it I won't eat it. Give me 5 ingredients. That I can recognize :) If not I'm ok! I will find something. So as far as my Processed free, I think I was eating hidden Corn. Corn is pretty hard to detect. So i'm good with no processed or less processed :) Thanks everyone :)

I was too hasty to blam it on the rice! I need to take my own advice and think about the night or day before. I had some apple juice with the kids. Thats what affected me :) So rice is still on the menu :)

Thank you GF Lover and Diane, Yes I have to be patient. Quit jumping to conclusions to fast! "I will not judge till two months form the 7th" :) Diane I have not ever really been about bread. Now I know why. Lol I have not tried making Almond Muffins as of yet. I did buy some Almond flour tho :). So far so good on my new doit. I had a bretty big chicken salad yesterday. Nope not any dressing on it. I really don't need dressing. I did fine with orange slices, pineapple slices and apples. Who needs dressing? Later I had some rice and later I had some Spaghetti squash. Today scrambled eggs later beans and rice <-- my fav!

So far so good. Only been a few days. Not feeling any different. But patients. I made some home made Spaghetti sauce yesterday. With my Canned Tomatoes that I grew in my garden. I also had some Grass feed hamburger . I made hubbs some noodles and I didn't have any noodles I made some spinach and put in my sauce to make it a lil richer.

Shredded zucchini or julienned zucchini makes wonderful spaghetti noodles! I do this all the time just because of the calorie forgiveness. Spinach has always given me D (before my whole CD nightmare, too) so I avoid it.

There is a wonderful book called Practical Paleo with lots of wonderful recipes and don't use beans, rice or any other grains.  All using whole foods, nothing processed.  It's my new BFF !

Best wishes in all your efforts!  Have your tried making muffins with almond flour?  Even my family like them.

I made muffins with Almond flour!! Very very good !! I made them one day with Garlic in them :) And I made them today with no flavoring. Well I used Almond Meal 1/4 C. 1Tablespoon of Homemade Maple syrup, 1 egg, 1 Tablespoon of Olive oil. Put it in a cup and Microwave it for 1.15 min :) No its not big but then I slice it , put it in the oven for a few with butter :) It is very good! :) Now I am going to experiment with Almond Meal. The egg is what holds it together even tho it doesn't taste eggy.... It is very good :) Your supposed to whip the egg real good 1st before you mix it. If you want flavoring like Cinnamon or Garlic it calls for 1 Tablespoon. I think 1 Tablespoon is a lil to much.

I think I figured my problem out! Or most of it anyway. When ever I make rice and eat it. I put butter in it when I cook it. I also usually but more butter in it when I eat it as a leftover. I think that's why sometimes it doesn't bother me then when I eat it as a leftover I get really bothered by it.
