A Week In My Kitchen

If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram you know some of the things I don’t eat. There’s junk food, dairy, gluten, potatoes,  eggs, the list goes on. But what do I eat? There are plenty of foods left after I take away everything that causes a reaction in my body. I created a week sample so you can see the variety of foods that I’m allowed to have and that fill me up. I must warn you, I eat meat and a good amount of it.If you’re vegan, look away in 3, 2, 1…

This menu varies and changes. I don’t always eat this way. Some days I cheat like any normal person. But the reward has to outweigh the consequence. Some foods cause a bad reaction. Eggs, for example, bloat my stomach and I look 5 months pregnant. So I will only eat it if I’m super craving it or the food I’m eating it with just wouldn’t be the same without it.

I never go hungry and I eat more than enough calories to have the energy I need. But because these foods are whole foods rather than processed, every calorie provides energy and the nutrients my body craves. The processed meats like the chicken sausage contain no nitrates and have about 3 ingredients on the list. I love having fruit in my fridge because I love sweets. If a craving hits, grabbing a crunchy pear fulfills it. Sometimes I snack more than once and the nighttime snack is because I have to take a medicine with food at 11. Otherwise that snack would be eliminated. This is the what I eat every week. Of course everything is in moderation. I don’t drive myself crazy when I go out on the weekends but I am careful not to go overboard.

We are all different and what works for me may not work for you. Some people can’t have grains. Some can’t have gluten. No one should ever follow what someone else is doing but you can always take what could possibly work for you. Try things out and see what makes your body feel good.

 

Stay Healthy, Janeris
