Since I posted my fitness routine… I have received a few inquiries about my diet. I promise it is the simplest diet ever, but there are a few components to it. First, I have been gluten free for about four years. I have a stomach condition called Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), per doctor’s orders I shouldn’t eat gluten or consume dairy, along the years I learned I have a hard time processing meat as well. This is what has shaped my diet today.
In a nutshell, I eat vegetables, chicken and turkey. I try really hard to stay away from processed food, but on occasion I do eat brown rice pasta, or gluten free bread… Udis, is my favorite. Gluten free food has come a long way, when I first transitioned to a gluten free diet, I didn’t eat any of the specialized foods, they were so gross. Now they are pretty good, I can even get my husband to have some too. Unfortunately, they tend to be high in sugar and other not so great things to make it taste good, which is why I eat them only on occasion.
Here is my typical day of eating for me.
Breakfast: Coffee… I like to use a lot of cream in my coffee so it increased the calories a lot and it fills me.
Morning Snack: Fruit, turkey bacon, turkey sausage, serving size oatmeal.
Lunch: Salad, soup, leftovers typically.
Afternoon Snack: Fruit, tea (with cream), protein shake, Gluten free cookies, or desert of some kind.
Dinner: Anything goes!
Evening Snack: Usually a popsicle, tea (no cream), fruit, sometimes a tiny bit of ice cream.
Things to note: I do consume dairy and gluten on very small scales. I eat fried foods which contain gluten, and I do eat ice cream. The coffee creamer I use is nondairy and I eat my ice cream out of a small Dixie cup. I think it is important to say I do not have Celiac’s Disease, for those of you who do, please do not consume gluten. Remember you should always consult a doctor when making changes to your diet or fitness routine.
By the way… I HATE eggs and ketchup!
