Elimination Diet…Part 3 of 3
Now we get to the good stuff…what foods you are able to eat.
Oils: sunflower, sesame, virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil, safflower oil
Nuts: Nuts in the shell or cracked without additives(Hazelnuts, Almonds, Pecans)
Almond and Sesame butter
Eat mainly fresh or fresh-frozen foods.
Fish(Fresh, Packed in Water, or Packed in Olive Oil)
Sea Salt(commercial salt often contains corn starch and chemicals)
Vegetables: (Sweet Potatoes, Yams, Cabbage, Carrots, Squash, Asparagus, Cauliflower, Avocados, Celery, Okra,
Radishes, Greens, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Parsnips, Green Peppers,
Rutabaga, Leeks, and Turnips)
Fruits: Fresh or Frozen.(Bananas, Grapes, Peaches, Pears, Pineapple, Kiwi, Papaya, Mangos, Coconuts,
Plums, Persimmons, Berries, Melons, Cherries, Apricots, Pomegranates)
Note: eat only small servings of fruits as fruits contain lots of natural sugar.
Sweeteners: Honey in very small amounts, Stevia
Meats: Wild Game(Deer, Rabbit, Duck), Deep Water Ocean Fish, Salmon, Lamb, Crab, Lobster, Oysters,
Clams, Scallops, Turkey.
(Other elimination diets I have seen allow most meats and fish other than Beef and Shellfish.)
Avoid processed, smoked or cured meats since they contain starches, fillers, milk, corn,
sugar, food coloring and other additives.
Also, if you eat an allowed food presently quite often before you start the elimination diet, it is
quite possible that you are allergic to that food…and it is advised that you refrain from eating that
during the elimination diet(mine was almonds…)
I know in the beginning I was almost afraid to put anything into my mouth and was not eating enough. The trick is to make sure you have allowable foods in the house. I made soups of allowable foods and that saved me for many of my weak moments. It’s only for 30 days…keep telling yourself that 🙂
