Here are the basics of what I can and can’t eat:
No dairy for breakfast
15 g carbs at breakfast and snacks, 30 g for meals (including starchy veggies)
No white rice, white potatoes, or white bread
No corn or products with corn (that’s new)
No wheat (that’s new) – includes bread and pasta
I can have tons of meat and veggies.
I can have half a sweet potato, 1/3 cup brown rice, 1 slice of wheat-free bread, 1/3 cup wheat-free pasta, or 1/2 cup peas with a meal. I can have 1 cup of winter squash, but I haven’t found a way to make it taste good yet.
I really love snacking on carrots, bell peppers, and drinking green smoothies (with kale).
I had a fantastic dinner the other night of two cheeseburger patties (no buns), carrots, and sweet potato spears. I plan to learn to make a lot of easy stir fries, as I’ll be eating a lot of rice.
