I succumbed to laziness. My two year old, who has to have new foods one at a time, was given a diet with four new variables. He has been doing so well for so long that I thought he would be reaction free. NOPE.
Should have known better. Let’s get specific. I decreased his probiotic from two capsules per day to one, I accidentally gave him some “soy-nut” butter, which has both soybeans and CORN in it, and I gave him the dum dum lollipops. Why the lollipops? Because the poor kids never gets any treats or dessert like substances. I assumed that if the artificial colors didn’t cause a reaction, then the rest of the sucker would be ok. Oooooopppss – it seems that almost all suckers are full of corn syrup. Silly me.
Backtracking won’t be too hard. I’ll be more careful and stick to the things that I know he can handle. When his bowel movements look normal again, I will stuff him full of corn.
Poor kid. Meanwhile, I think I will call the health food store and find out what kind of candy they carry. Eventually, I will be taking an entire Sunday to make cookies, but as they are not my strongpoint, I hate to rely on that.
Lunch today was leftover salad with carrots, cucumbers, spinach, garlic, salt, parsley and olive oil. I also had half a rye and cheese sandwich. I think my most practical discovery since starting this lifestyle would be the salad dressing. I love any salad as long as I can pour olive oil and a little salt on it. Simple.
