Going strong

Well it's been a few days since my last post.  I have been very busy with company staying with us.  The good news is, I'm doing great.  It's been a good run!

I had a few glasses of wine lastnight (let's just say more than my usual 2!) so I was a little nervous that it might send me into a flare but other than a little headache this morning, my hands are great!!  It is however hard to fight a hangover without comfort food and carbs!! 

So, my safe list has grown to include a brown rice protein drink.  I attended a terrific nutrition seminar last week at a company called "The Wellness Group."  It was a very informative seminar on how to feed your children nutritiously.  I spoke to the woman after the class about what I am doing and she applauded me- she is a big fan of elimination diets (yay for me).  She recommended this protein drink which is very clean, it's raw, vegan and organic.  Let me just say it tastes what you would think rice protein would taste like!  Not fantastic, but it's still a treat for me since there is cocoa powder in it.  I am on day 5 of drinking it and no probs. 

Today I purchased chocolate brown rice milk.  I figured it was a fairly safe choice and something that I can blend with the protein powder to make it taste better.

I'm struggling a little bit coming up with ideas of what to add next.  I'm not a rice fan but I like quinoa, so that might be on deck.

For now I'm just going to concentrate on continuing to go slow!  It's truly been amazing.
