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!

After nearly a lifetime of vegetarian/vegan living and nutritional study I concur. Limiting processed foods, processed starchy carbs in particular, and sugar works so much better for so many constitutions than a lack of usable protein. Meat is only inflammatory if it's eaten to excess, without the addition of green leafy foods, in poor combinations (like with starchy carbs at the same meal), and if it's not raised in a healthy, natural manner. Grass fed meat and dairy in moderation has cured so many of my chronic conditions and made a world of difference in the health of my newly minted teen Wink.

I started working at a local organic food co-op, my current challenge is keeping it simple instead of bringing home samples of all the interesting prepared foods and condiments. There is just so much neat-o product, and all the ingredients are actually FOOD! LOL.
At least I've got regular access to more local produce, and I'm already there working so shopping fresh is super easy. Less time for food prep though since I'm back at work again. I'm working on balancing that with meal planning and bulk cooking. I could use a bigger freezer.
