Week 1 of my Elimination Diet ended with the Rock the Parkway 1/2marathon on Saturday. The race and my registration debacle deserve a separate post but the nutrition aspect is important. Actually, what's important is that I didn't have any GI issues.
|One of us was much more serious about this race than the other.|
So right now, my preferred breakfast is banana quinoa with coconut milk. I cook 1 cup quinoa as directed, then put in 2 overripe, mashed bananas, 1 tsp salt and coconut milk to cover and cook on low to combine. I put it in the fridge and eat it hot or cold in the morning. Today I added blueberries as well. I've been buying Silk brand coconut milk and it's pretty good. It's fortified with calcium, which I need. And it makes a great chai tea.
I'm feeling better and definitely less gassy. Besides everything I listed last time, I found raw carrots also cause problems. I also went to my primary care doc and have a referral for a GI specialist. I'll be calling this week. It would be nice to have a professional agree with whatever I find (or tell me why I'm crazy). So it goes on. Week 2, here I come.
