Good luck, Mare! I know those diets can be rough but I have a friend with RA and she swears it helps her. I hope it works for you too. I think prepping the food in advance will be key - that will be make it harder to find an excuse to slip from the diet Smiley.

I gave this recipe a go the other day... http://produceonparade.com/thai-quinoa-burgers/.

I made itty bitty versions though and served them on whole wheat rolls. I mixed up mayo, toasted sesame oil and srirachi sauce to go with them. A little labor intensive but yum!

Good luck, Mare! I have felt multiple times that I should do an elimination diet, but I can never get started. It's so hard! I'll be interested in how you do!

OMG, those quinoa burgers look amazing, Lime. Must pin and try, though they do look like a lot of work.

I've been slipping on cutting out sugar lately, though intake is still pretty low. Someone brought girl scout cookies into work, and who could turn those down?? I swear office life is the ultimate test of willpower.

We did try pho for the first time recently and it was pretty amazing. I've had a hankering to try photojenn's recipe. Has anyone else had great success with an at-home pho recipe?

Mmm I love pho! Never tried it at home though.

I can't eat quinoa (unfortunate last meal previous to a bout of stomach flu) but those burgers do look good!

Yesterday wasn't bad, I had my rice/beans, broccoli and a little ground beef. Sauces are hard, I need to get some coconut aminos I think, supposed to be similar to soy sauce. Anyone tried those?

What's everyone up to these days? Found any good recipes lately?

Apparently last time I updated this thread I was doing the elimination diet. I did that for a week or so and then said "screw it!" ha! I really think my issues are sugar--leads to munchies/binging and dairy--milk or ice cream leads to digestion problems.

Trying to just eat healthy and not "diet" now. That's a different mindset than I'm used to. We're working on eating less dairy/breads/starchy veggies/grains/processed foods and more meats/veggies/fruits/good fats. I'm not restricting cheese though, because cheese makes life happy Cheesy

Tonight we had fajita salads--base of lettuce topped with sizzling steak/peppers/onions, avocado, salsa, and a bit of sour cream cheese (no pic)

Last night was salmon, mashed cauliflower, and avocado


Dessert: fresh raspberries with coconut cream and sliced almonds


Salad from the other day: greens, peppers, scoop of chicken salad, mandarin oranges, honey mustard dressing, cashews and horseradish deviled egg



On the menu for the next week is an Asian chicken slaw--shredded cabbage, shredded carrot, chopped poached chicken , sliced almonds, green onion, sesame seeds, with a vinaigrette made with a touch of sesame oil.

I'm just exhausted all the time lately and don't have energy for anything. Also a lot of these are inflammatory and I've been having a rough time with my RA (some of the fatigue is from that I'm sure, but it's so much worse than normal RA fatigue).

Maybe you should try eating less meat? At least red meat is highly inflammatory and vegetarian food is good both for you and the environment Smiley

Personally, I've been a bit lazy lately. But now I want to get going with exercising again. My goal is to be able to munch as much as I want while still maintaining my weight as it is now. But I do try to stay away from highly processed food (easy if you're avoiding palm oil (kills orangutans Cry !)) and white flour and sugar... The best tip for me is to eat a lot of fruit/nuts in between meals when I feel like snacking Smiley

Yeah I've tried vegetarian and vegan diets and they aren't for me. A lot of my exhaustion is gone when I limit carbs and sugar. I've definitely gone the other way towards a more Paleo way of eating and I feel so much better!
