Happy WIAW! No intro here – we know what’s happening! FOOOOOD PARTEEEYYYYY!!!
Thank you Jenn!!
Before I start, I have some not so cool news. In the past weeks, I had appointments with a nutrtionist and doctor who analyzed my digestive system to make sure it recovers from long lasting laxative abuse. Last week I made a blood test to figure out if there’s any food I’m reacting sensitive on. I do have some issues with a bloated belly at night and water retention. Nothing too horrible, but still a little annoying at times.
So yesterday he called me to give me the results. Top 5 on the list of food my gut is reacting sensitive and in danger to inflame are:
Yes. I want to cry all day.
Now I don’t want to meet trouble halfway – I don’t have the detailed report yet. But he did say that in the worst case I will need to eliminate theses foodgroups entirely for some time. Don’t even THINK that I am happy to say ‘oh I can’t eat this’…..I think it’s horrible. Finally I learned to incorporate ALL foods into my diet without developing anxieties and overcame food fear – not completely, but a lot more – and now I have to cut them out again? Seriously, please, no.
Honestly? I’m a little lost and I don’t know what to do. If I should ignore it and continue eating like I did, or if I should take this serious. I think I will just have to let it set for a few days and then meet up the doctor for a talk and some clarification. I’ll keep you posted. Oh, and if anyone has experience with this kind of ‘sensitivities’ – I’d be very grateful for any tip how to handle this!
But now let’s talk fun stuff – and for the moment I refuse to cut out my favorite foods. So here comes my Tuesday:
5:30 am: Unpictured Apple Cider Vinegar, BCAA’s and hot lemon water first thing in the morning.
7:45 am: Postworkout: Protein Shake with supplements included….
2 hours later, 9:30 am, I digged in my eggy oats with a clementine. I pimped them with a little coconut milk and 7 tons of cinnamon. 12:00: I spent lunch with Esther, a very good friend of mine and we went to Hitzberger – a cute salad/wrap bar with freshly made and organic food. I went with my favorite salad – greens, salmon, cottage cheese and carrots. Whole Grain Breadroll on the side.
For ‘dessert’ I had something I know my lovely sister Amanda will be excited about…..Cappuccino and chocolate! There was so much milk in it, that I found it really good. It held me over the whole afternoon, and when I came home at 5pm, all I had for a snack was an egg…..what a concidence…. :-( 7:00pm: Dinner was chicken – cooked up in a little coconut milk with mushrooms and broccoli, sprinkled with roasted onions and TVP.
8:30pm: Bedtime snack was nothing new either – choco-quark. I pimped this one with PB2 and it was SO GOOD. Don’t even make me think that I might need to stop eating this. I really don’t think this is possible….
That’s it! Sorry for the whining part!!
What is one food that you eat on repeat?
How much coffee do you drink a day?
Are you sensitive on any kind of food?
