Since I clearly don’t have enough on my plate, I’m taking on some major diet changes. I feel like this is the only way to find some relief from the chronic pain and fatigue that is controlling my body and my life. The doctor isn’t helping and I have a cross country move to do in a month.
The name of the game is the autoimmune protocol. Basically, it is Paleo (no grains, legumes, dairy, processed foods) minus any inflammatory foods (nightshades, eggs, nuts, seeds). The point is to heal the gut and decrease systemic inflammation. Here’s a helpful chart I found.
I will be having Wallace go dairy and grain free with me (so pretty much Paleo) and hoping that will help his cradle cap that could actually be psoriasis. This will be easier to manage not in my dad’s house but it could be challenging on the road. Making this a slow transition will allow for me to use up the things we have on hand and slowly weed out things from our diet.
Yesterday, we ate gf/df muffins, bone broth, cucumbers, a scramble (sweet potato, potato, kale, onion, garlic, and two turkey burger patties with carrot and mushrom in them), fruit, parsnip chips, leftover noodles and chicken, and kefir (df yogurt for me). I have a ton of green things in my fridge to eat.
