Day 1 of 21: Start of Elimination Diet

As a healthy way to start 2012, my sister, her fiance, and I have decided to challenge ourselves with a 21-day elimination diet.  We are going to follow the Elimination Diet guidelines with a few modifications.  This diet revolves around eliminating foods known to cause allergies and disruptions to our digestive process.  The diet has a list of approved and eliminated foods.  Technically, you are supposed to have one solid meal (lunch) and two liquid meals (breakfast/dinner).  I will be following the approved/eliminated food guidelines, however I will be eating a liquid for breakfast and solids for lunch and dinner. 

I am following the Elimination Diet from the Clean Program by Dr. Junger.

Excluded:  
Gluten, coffee, dairy, beef, alcohol, some vegetables/fruits/nuts, sweeteners, ketchup, soybeans, tofu, and more.

Included:  
Most vegetables and fruits, some nuts, seeds, beans, non-gluten grains, some dairy substitues, small amounts of dried fruit, cold water ocean fish, free range chicken, wild game, lamb, buffalo, some oils and spices, tea, and more.

I was sick today (Day #1) so its a perfect day to start my healthy diet.

So let's see what I ate:  

Breakfast:
Smoothie with organic frozen mango, blueberries, raspberries, almond milk, and 1 Tbsp of flax seed

Lunch:
Cooked brown rice toasted with olive oil, salt, pepper, chopped almonds, and currants
Apple and Carrots with Hummus

Snack:
Dried Seaweed and Carrot Juice

Dinner:  
Cooked red quinoa tossed with lemon juice, sautéed cauliflower/mushrooms/zucchini, olive oil, radicchio, white beans, salt, and pepper



Keep posted for diet updates!

  3. I am so with you on this! There's no way I'd be able to stick to a shake for dinner, so maybe I'll modify it the way you did. I think the best part of meal plans like this is that it just gets you eating more healthy foods again. Thanks for the inspiration!
