No Wheat, No Dairy

Well, today is the first day of my New Years Resolution to eat no wheat, no dairy month of January. I have committed to cut these items out of my diet for one month. My naturopath suggested it (as I am sure they suggest it to everyone they see, but anyway) and I decided to give it a shot.

Yesterday was the shopping day to hunt for non wheat and non (cow) dairy items. I am allowed goat dairy items. I found some 100% rye bread with no wheat flour and some corn tortillas for bread. I got some yummy looking goat cheese and some soy yogurt. I haven't even really started yet but I am feeling confident that it is something I can do. I am pretty excited about it really.

My whole life all I have eaten is wheat really. Aside from some cheese and meat, wheat was the main bulk of my diet. To go a whole month without any will be a great accomplishment for me.

The second part of my resolution is to eat more nutrients especially Omega 3s. I eat almost NO fish at all, so I know it is important for me to get my Omega 3s. I have purchased a high potency fish oil that is lemon flavoured and you just take a teaspoon everyday. I have also purchased some flax seeds and a coffee grinder so that I can add fresh ground flax seeds to my salad every day. This is part of my new plan to follow the Gabriel Method.

I am also taking a probiotic every day and a digestive enzyme to help with my digestive issues caused by my gaul bladder being removed 5 years ago. I am really looking forward to looking better on the inside. I am confident that these changes will help that happen.

My lunch today consists of:

Corn tortillas for fajitas that will have:
Ground Chicken cooked with corn salsa
Goat Cheese
Avacado
Beans
Spinach

A salad with:
1 Omega 3 enriched egg
Spinach
Broccoli coleslaw (shredded broccoli, cabbage and carrot)
Cucumber
Goat Feta
Fresh ground Flax Seeds
Sesame Seeds
Pumpkin Seeds
Corn Chips
Home made Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing that I made myself.

Dressing has:
Sesame Oil
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Dijon Mustard
Sesame Seeds
Garlic
Ginger
Pure Maple Syrup
Peanut Butter

Snack:
Soy Yogurt with frozen strawberries and blueberries
Rice Crackers and goat cheese

Looking forward to my yummy lunch...SUCH a difference from the plain white bread with cream cheese, mustard and turkey slice sandwich that I used to have with chips and chocolate as a snack...I've come a long way baby!

  1. The food listed above sounds fantastic, except for the soy yogurt. I recommend taking a look over at Mark's Daily Apple website. It will blow your mind. I think you will find it very helpful with regards to nutrition and also with your exercise program. It has opened my eyes and I feel better because of it. You look great by the way.

  2. Hi Jenna,
    Best of luck! It´s hard at first just to find other things to eat and break the bread habit, but sooooo worth it. If you eliminate sugar too then food cravings will become almost nonexistent. What a wonderful way to start the new year! You can do it!
