Getting used to no-grain diet. I no longer feel continually hungry. Cheat a teensy-weensy bit just to test, and I feel hungry again. Tried quinoa -- same result, so quinoa's out! For carbohydrate I eat pumpkin and squash, adzuki (and other permitted) beans, lentils, parsnip, carrot, soy things like tofu/tempeh. Also, LOTS of fresh fruit - it is our summer here, so all the great summer fruits are in. I am trying to stick to HBs for As as much as possible. (I WISH mangoes weren't an Avoid for As - sigh - I love them). I have lost pounds (I could do with it :o(), although that was not my goal. Amazing. I wonder now if I have had an insulin reaction from eating grains for a very long time. Seems a distinct possibility.
Glad to report the Herxheimer reaction for treatment of mycoplasma and all those other nasty resident aliens is less severe. I hope that means that the populations of nasties are reducing.
Am exploring CR4YT. Some VERY yummy dressings for leafy salads, steamed veg salads and fruit salads. Excellent for Aussie summer! Thanks to all who brought CR to birth!
