I accept defeat with food rotation. I’m now avoiding all nightshades, grains, foods high in histamines, and foods I’m intolerant to. This leaves me with about 25 to 30 foods to choose from. If I then try to rotate so I eat one food one week and then don’t eat it again for two more weeks (to try to prevent further food intolerances), I’m left with about 8 foods a week to eat.
Seriously, not only is this boring, but I don’t think it is nutritionally sound. My hair is starting to fall out again, so I’ve decided to take my chances with developing more food intolerances so I can avoid going bald. Having said that, here is the plan for the week:
For the Family (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)
Saturday–Chicken Tortilla Soup
Sunday–Cabbage, ham and rice
Monday–Beef and cabbage soup, gluten free bread with dairy free butter
Tuesday–Homemade meatloaf, mixed veggies, homemade french fries
Wednesday–Roasted vegetable soup, gluten free bread with dairy free butter
Thursday–Sloppy joes, green beans, homemade french fries
Friday–pasta and white bean soup
I’m not sure exactly what I will be eating because I just went grocery shopping with my week’s rotation in mind. I’ll make my meals based on things we have on hand which will include:
beef, pork, bison, pear, apple, baby bok choy, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, and cauliflower
Next week I’ll have a more structured plan to try to avoid eating the same foods too frequently.
