Elimination Diet- Day Two
I forgot we needed black peppercorns for the pepper grinder. But I did remember to buy a roasted chicken. And, even before putting it in a suitable container for storage, I ate the two legs and two wings. Standing at the counter like a cave woman. Oh, how I have changed.
I went to the grocery with my friend Patty.. She drove by while I was walking along the road, on the way home from my walk. But before going to the grocery we went to lunch.
My lunch wasn't holding. I had a huge plate of lettuce and grated carrots in my "chef's salad" but no dressing (none were legal), no tomato, no cheese, no peppers. I did have some turkey on top. My lunch partner gave me her homemade dill pickle which was in reality--- just a cucumber that had been sitting in vinegar for one day.
I also purchased a roasted turkey breast which G and I will share for dinner. I will have turkey, baked sweet potato (no butter) and steamed or roasted green beans. G will have gravy and Stove Top stuffing with his. I will try not to be unhappy about the gravy. Or the lack of cranberry sauce.
The chicken is for tomorrow and I also purchased a package of frozen wild salmon which is supposedly the only kind I can have. I'll have that on top of a salad or wilted greens on Wednesday. My grocery fish counter had only farm raised salmon. Which I am not supposed to eat.
I also purchased short grain brown rice because the gal, Shira Bocar, on the Martha Stewart videos "eat clean" used it in three recipes so I guess it's good stuff.
That's all I have to say. My friend wasn't sure it was me walking on the side of the road today. She said I looked different---- thinner.
