I am regimented about using the Ocean saline spray and figuring out what foods increase the mucus production in my sinuses and throat, post nasal drip. Manufacturers hide gluten and wheat in so many small places it is a job to adhere to the format.
I am finding recipes I really like and take food with me when I am not sure what will be offered. I found that if I am hungry I get irritable and make poor choices. The trick for me is being prepared to eat when I am hungry. People will notice the cool stuff you have packed and ask about what you are doing. The conversations I have had with people about allergies have been very interesting and several friends are trying this process to see how they will do on it.
I met a woman this week that lost 40lbs by going gluten free, and she admitted it mostly came from her belly area.
I found a squash recipe this week.
Sesame Oil, mustard seed, crushed garlic, zucchini and yellow squash cut in bite size pieces. Heat the oil add the seeds and garlic, cook until the garlic starts to turn beige, add squash to desired texture and enjoy.
I like a small amount of oil, lots of seeds and garlic, squash is almost free this time of year, so I prepare what I will eat at one sitting, a medium zucchini and small yellow squash. YUM!!!
Now is an interesting test, vacation at the beach with the family, six nieces, brother, mother and me, Oh-my.
