WIAW #61: Simple Summer Eats

WIAW #43

This WIAW showcases a transition during the second week of my elimination. I decided to stick it out for three weeks of no grains, dairy, or soy, to see if any of these might be the culprit of some health issues I’d been experiencing on and off. Like last week, it didn’t mean I wasn’t able to enjoy lots of delicious food, with a little creativity and planning ahead. I’m used to being extra careful, after all! However, one thing changed toward the middle of the second week. I started to be ravenous all the time. For no particular reason. In fact, last week I only ran three days, with lower mileage than the rest of the month. I’m not sure if the elimination did something to my metabolism, but this usually filling breakfast of a microwave pumpkin scone and a huge dollop (maybe 5-6 spoonfuls) of sunflower seed butter only stayed me for an hour on Friday!

WIAW #42: First Week of Elimination

This WIAW showcases my eats from the first week of the elimination I’ve been doing for health reasons. With no grains, dairy, soy, or alcohol, and limited sugars, it looks a little different than my typical eats. No Greek yogurt, ice cream, or gluten free oats. But it’s still been delicious!
