It's gonna be a hungry 6 weeks...
Yesterday my poor husband came home from one of the many doctors he's been seeing for his back with this list of things he is not allowed to eat for the next six weeks: Cows milk, butter, cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, sour cream, ice cream, eggs, meat, poultry, fish, mayonnaise, vegetable oils, white rice, white flour, refined and sugar-coated cereals, coconut, chocolate, sugar, salt, decaf coffee, cola...! It is called an "anti-inflamatory diet" and I sure hope it works. He started decompression therapy yesterday and has to eat like this for the duration of treatment. Ugh. Poor guy. Although after nearly 3 months of this pain, he'd try nearly anything.
So, what can he eat? Three stores and two hours later...It is an embarrassingly messy fridge, but at least we have food. Can you tell which shelf is his? Now I just have to learn to cook all over again, and make bland things taste good. Any suggestions? Next post maybe I'll give you a recipe to try!! It is a good thing I love him so much.
