Week 2 Menu – Total Elimination Diet

These are the meals I prepared for week 2.  Baby O has started having his “witching hour” right when I’m trying to prepare dinner (awesome) so that was challenging. After last week I was concerned that I wasn’t getting all the nutrients I need, specifically enough protein.  I tried to make a conscious effort to ensure I was getting at least the daily recommended amount.  It’ll be much easier once I can incorporate some other high protein foods back into my diet.

End of Week Thoughts
1. The puffed rice cereal was decidedly not as good as the crunchy rice cereal.  FYI.
2. I call BS in regards to detoxing off sugar in 10 days. I want ALL. THE. SUGAR.
3. I was more hungry this week than I was last week.  Not real sure what that was about.  I ate far less rice this week than last, so maybe that has something to do with it.
4. I made sure I got enough protein daily this week too from my meat consumption.  I didn’t calculate any other nutrients.  Time got away from me.
5. I think I need to have a meal pre-made in the fridge for the week. Once again on the weekend I was just done making dinners and trying to be creative so I ate brown rice pasta for like 2 days straight. If I have something in the fridge to snack on or eat when I just don’t care anymore that might be helpful.  I don’t know.  Maybe I’ll try it this week.  Who knows.
