One day down, 59 to go until that scope! It may take that long to get used to this new routine, to re-order my kitchen and shopping, to break old habits and form new ones.
Eating and preparing food that is fresh and authentic brings me a great deal of satisfaction. As much as possible, I hope to hold on to that value, even with a limited diet.
Partly as a memory-jog, and partly to be helpful to other adults with restricted diets, I will try to blog daily menus. Let me know if you have food suggestions, or if you spot anything that could potentially spell trouble. I’ll provide recipes when they seem called for and I’m up for it. Here we go with Day One:
Breakfast: An orange; Cream of buckwheat w/ maple syrup, brown sugar, and raisins (and possibly a bit of heartburn, but not sure yet); peach rooibos tea; grape juice.
Lunch and snacks: French lentils with fennel and escarole (recipe in Simple Suppers); a peach and some cherries; carrots; freeze-dried peaches.
Dinner: Broiled salmon with olive oil and maple vinegar; roasted beets and carrots; sauteed zucchini and onion; an apricot and a few more cherries; too much Equal Exchange chocolate with mint.
Observations: The day is feeling really incomplete without anything bready. Pretty sure that this is where I’m going to crack!
