On to stage Two

Thanks for the tips on finding a new way to eat while my diet is so restricted.

The doctor is pretty much convinced that I have a food issue, so for a month I need to keep a food journal and keep my restrictions. He did give me back dairy, however, and told me to hold off on everything else.

So, keep the ideas coming! Any help you can send my way that doesn't involve plain meat with a side of plain veggies is much appreciated.

Thanks oodles!

More Change on the wind

Ah, Change.

I always wonder why things can't just be stable with my health, but as many of us with auto-immune disorders know, that's not always the case.

In a frustrating turn of events, I've started to feel pretty lousy again, and my doctor put me on a new fast to rule out another food-driven issue. I am now restricted to eating only
  • fruits
  • vegetables
  • meat
  • fish
No dairy, no grains, no potatoes or corn (because I eat them both almost daily).

Good news: I've already lost 5 pounds.
Bad news: I have no idea how to cook...

So....  THE POINT of this little story is to reach out to those of you who may be vegetarians or who eat a wide variety of vegetable dishes. I like vegetables, I really do. But...
  • I need carbs. I can't really function well or keep my blood sugar as stable as I like without them.
  • I need variety. There's only so many salads I can handle.
  • I need to stay away from soy and dairy. 
  • I need to do this for at least 2 weeks.
  • I need ideas. How do you keep variety and interest in what you eat? How do you keep your nutrition balanced?
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.  If you have a favorite reference, cookbook, website, or recipe you can share, that would be awesome.
