Yogurt

I ate yogurt this morning.  I’d had a banana and one infusion of gunpowder green tea earlier in the morning.  The yogurt was a 4oz “Li’l Yami Yogurt”, peaches ‘n cream.  The package reads “Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free” (“We use Lactase, a natural enzyme to remove lactose from our yogurt, minimizing added sugars and making it ideal for lactose-sensitive people.”)  Well…my body immediately went into shock:  dizziness, nausea, heart palpitations, sweating, shaking, impaired concentration, sleepiness.  I had eaten one other yogurt from this six-pack without incident but this is one of a number of foods that I can sometimes tolerate, sometimes not.  I just never know.

Since my stomach surgery, my diet has had to adapt due to physiological changes, due to the requirements of medication, due to diagnosis with epilepsy and osteopenia, and due to an obvious desire to reduce the risk of developing cancer again.  Ideally my diet should avoid:

Alcohol

Sugar

Gluten

Simple Carbs

Processed Foods

Yogurt

Meat

Tomato

Chocolate

Caffeine

NO SPICY FOODS

…..and minimize fruit.

LOL!  That leaves….vegetables!…and some non-gluten grains.  Joy!  😀  Now, I love vegetables…but…trying to maintain an interest in food over the last 3 1/2 years, with these restrictions…not to mention trying to ensure that I get the vitamins, nutrients, protein, and calories that I need…well, it’s a challenge.  I’ll write more about that in the future but, for now, I need to go nibble on something, take my vitamins, and go to work…

  1. Hello inspiring woman! Lovely reading your blog this morning. I am wondering, have you discovered Body Ecology yet? I looked at your list of foods to avoid and thought you might like some of Donna Gates recipes. With love from Sydney, Shel 🙂
