Things are going great on my end. I haven't been adding foods as often as I should, but I'm enjoying the use of my hands and feet so much I don't want to send myself into a flare!! I mean, it's part of the process but I'm being selfish!
My son turned 2 this past week and there were a few parties here for him. That means some baking (cupcakes) and other treats (pizza, chips, etc) I fully admit and take responsibility for sneaking a bite of a cupcake but other than that, things have been going very well.
I successfully added pork, which is nice as I have lots of options for dinner now (steak, chicken, pork, eggs, hamburger)
Today I pulled out our juicer and made a nice fresh juice. I was in a "let's get healthier" mood.... which I tend to do about once a month!! Haahaa. I used some safe foods- carrots, apple, celery..and added 2 newbies- beets and ginger. It tasted good. My 2 yr. old was even fighting me for it!! I don't mind letting him drink that!
On another note, I have been researching Omega 3 EFA's (essential fatty acids) and I think I'm going to change my curreny brand. I was using Nutrasea, then at the recommendation of a friend, switched to Metagenics (which I think is an excellent brand) but I just spoke to a rep for Cyto-Matrix and it turns out their supplement has much more EPA (1750mg) and DHA (875mg) as well as Vit D (1000 IU). They also carry a product called Inlammatrix which is what my Naturopath suggested, I just couldn't find it.
It's too bad my benefits don't cover all these proactive supplements....just the big bad meds that I'm staying away from!
