A question I hear regularly, it usually amuses me. I eat quite well, thank you very much! Very simply, I eat whole foods. The things that God made - meat, fruits, veggies, oils.
My baby is intolerant to a lot of things - caffeine (I can't even do decaf coffee or tea), dairy, soy, rice, corn, and probably other things. I breastfeed her, since my milk is the safest we can give her to eat, and it's free. So I avoid the things she can't eat, plus some things of my own I'm intolerant to.
Altogether, I eat free of gluten, dairy, soy, most corn, rice, caffeine, tree nuts, cashews, and currently not eating peanut butter, but I plan on trialing it soon, as well as sunflower seeds.
When people hear what I can't eat, they can't think of a single thing I CAN eat and pity me. I'm very happy with my food, most of the time. It's 90% attitude and 10% finding new and different things and ways to eat.
Don't pity me, I eat better than most of America, and I've lost 56 pounds to show for it!! I was obese before getting pregnant with my third child, the one I'm currently nursing, and I am now in my range for my height. Haven't been here in 10 years!
Anyway, people keep asking me what I eat, especially as the results of my weight loss are pretty dramatic, when compared to my old self. I'm also asked for links of blogs and sites I like to use for recipes, information, etc. so this will be a nice place to keep it all together, and I can send someone here instead of trying to tell them every link.
I try to eat mostly whole foods, the very few processed things I eat are Zevia - a soda made with the herb, Stevia, ocassionally salsa and pasta sauce, & Terra veggie chips.
So a usual dinner at our house is a meat, veggie and fruit. (Thanks, Whitney!) I try to keep organic apples & baby carrots (dipped in peanut butter or hummus) on hand, we eat them for snacks and at meals. I have organic frozen green beans and corn from Costco, super inexpensive for very yummy veggies.
The other day, we had stir fry heated with coconut oil, it comes in a bag from Costco and is delicious. I do pick out the onions for my husband, because they bother him.
