Okay, today started out pretty darn good if I do say so myself.
Breakfast was toast, and eggs cooked with a bit of olive oil in the stead of butter. A bit of salt and pepper and we were good to go for a bit. The kidlet was still hungry - so I fixed and enjoyed a bowl of cream of wheat with him. Sweetened with a touch of honey. I felt pretty good even after having those things.
Mid-morning snack was an english muffin with sausage and I have decided that the english muffin had an "off" flavor. I looked up one ingredient and am not likely to want them again. Lactic acid gives the bread an "acid" flavor.
My 4 year old wanted juice. And I have an abundance of apple juice concentrate. I noted after having that I was "burpy" and developed a mild case of heartburn. Not sure what triggered that, but will check apple juice again later on.
This next part is one in which I did have milk in a cookie...... went to HEB to get goodies for the boys to eat while they visited with my girlfriend. Munchmouse ( the one yr old for those who know me) -- did not want his cookie. So......... I ate it. I checked labels later and found the ingredients included less than 2% of skim milk and whey. I am counting it as a "milk" for the day and it does affect my food log. *sighs* I also had grapes -- munchmouse LOVES grapes.
When I went to my clients house to clean, she offered me icecream -- one of my favorites no less -- butter pecan. mmmmm... I miss it, but not enough to "want" some and feel lousy. So, I opted for a grape popsicle. Which was sugar free and tasted good.
After getting done with work, I called my girlfriend and asked her what I could get her from the store that she might need So, on my way out the store with the bananas, bacon, onions and Sean's icecream... I ate a banana... YUM
For dinner we had Sean's chili in frito pies. No milk there... meat, beans, and onion soup mix. After that I shared an apple with the kidlets.
How do I feel --- well its 10 pm at night and I am alert and feel good. I am going to go to bed and get my rest and start all over again in the morning. I will have to say that by eliminating nearly all of the milk products from my eating habits that I am already noticing a difference. Yeah, that one cookie for the day means I really should start day 1 as tomorrow.... however, I do not have that kind of patience or time. So -- today remains day 1 and I will keep moving on!
Many blessings to you that keep visiting me. Share my blog with others! Perhaps there are others out there that have a food allergy and just do not realize it. Milk is a big one that many many people are allergic to or sensitive to and just do not realize it. I am 35 yrs old and just now am "feeling" a major impact on my body that milk has had. I am going to work on the boys too. I think both munchie and kidlet have milk allergies too. Time will tell.
Thank you for visiting!
