pepphell...you are so funny, always thinking about food..... what's up with that??? I think it is
a good sign to be hungry.

I really miss Italian food. For 20 yrs I been trying to eat "right" and always revolt because
I want to eat what I ate my whole life. Pizza and pasta and good humor toasted almond bars.

Now I am on my knees so I will eat cardboard with country time goat cheese if they tell me to. (in fact I think that is how they make pizza in florida)

I think hummus is made out of chick peas? maybe sometime they put garlic in it too??
or maybe not? upsets my stomach.

One thing that seems to be ok for me is curry. I never feel sick or bloated after I eat in Indian resturant
but I don't eat hummus.

I eat it. Yum Yum. Maybe it's a little starchier than other foods but it has lots of fiber and the garlic is really good for you. Enjoy!

Try the hummus with raw veggies, like carrot & celery sticks, pieces of green or red bell pepper, etc...

I personally think organic corn chips are better than the regular type...who knows what the genetically modified corn would do to us w/ Lyme...

bucci, the thing is that, my llmd did some test and says that i am allergic to a whole bunch of stuff, like stuff that i've eaten all my life and never felt a THING. like basic stuff like, garlic, chilli power, soy, melons, oranges, tomatoes etc. I really don't believe in this but who knows what the docs do these days.

and secondly, me going of gluten-sugar free diet since i am on lyme, i am trying to think of all the things i can eat. I AM SUPER MAD hungry in the morning when i get up. and I don't eat meat. so I am having all kinds of trouble with food. eating, quinoa with lentils with salt is no fun. let me tell you that. but feeling 24/7 sick is also no fun either, which all of you already know. but life is life. i am only 29. only had 29 yrs of good food in me.

holy Cow..29!!! way too young for so much restrictions. I know how you feel though with this food allergy thing.
I just was told by doctor no eggs. no yogurt. Those were my 2 biggest sources of protien.
So when I get up in the morning I am so messed up over the egg thing. I already was staying away from dairy but eating yogurt for the gut but even that is out now.
But goat yogurt is ok but the egg thing really was such an easy way to get protien because i don't like to eat meat. Here is something funny. I am OK for pork!!!
My food trip is so scrambled up. Even the protien shake I have catch up on that post because for some other reason I got paranoid about whey but I been told so many differetn things I can't even remember why or what whey really even is.
I used to eat quinoa because it was supposed to be protien and then stopped that for some other weard reason.
All these food restrictions plus when you are so tired you can't even cook for yourself.
My diet is so bad and I think it isn't helping my treatment. I'm not eating sugar and cupcakes and pizza anymore and am heavier than I ever been.
Wow, you got a long way to go and whole great life ahead of you. I think the food thing is a trial and error and it is so complicatd by all the different systems of food analysis we are all getting. I bet once you figure out your food trip you will have more energy than ever. Sometime being MAD is a good thing cause it keeps us fighting and figuring it out.

all my energy goes into digesting. I think as our guts get stronger some of these foods will be ok. Garlic is known to be a medicine even. But it can put me out sometimes and then there is RAW or COOKED? so many questions. It is all COMBUSTION once it goes down your throat. I studied the blood type diet, and even the yeast connection diet and even ayurvedic cooking, lived in Raw communities and even the macro thing and drove myself nuts.

All this to be told by the last testing that PORK is OK for me. (I LOVE BACON !!)

Eating right is my biggest issue . I am food a phobic now and 20lbs over weight.

That is what make me MAD. How could I be so fat and never eat the fun stuff???

I think if you try it and it doesn't bother you, then it's okay. Most hummus is chickpeas, olive oil, garlic. I limit my carbohydrate intake, so I wouldn't eat too much of it, but if you don't have a yeast problem it could be okay for you. I like to dip veggies in it, or raw food crackers. It's really difficult to solve the food dilemma when you have Lyme. Like some other people, my LLMD gave me a food allergy test and many of the things I was eating to survive were problematic. I'm trying to do the candida diet, the IC diet, avoid the "trigger" foods revealed by the allergy test, avoid foods that can trigger inflammation, and follow a healthy diet. So many foods are eliminated by one or another of the diets that often I'm left with choices that are so unappetizing to me that I'd just as soon not eat. I'm a food phobic, too.

I know what you mean about yearning for the foods we used to have. I miss eating like a "normal" person. But I keep telling myself it's only temporary. Someday I will have blueberry pancakes again, and what a happy day that will be!

I've had good luck finding things I can eat that aren't too disgusting at alternative food stores like Whole foods and Trader Joes and Clarks. Maybe you will find some things there that you want to eat. Also, I drink a vitamin drink once or twice a day. That helps me get nutrition when my diet is so limited.

yeah I am going for soy protein shake with vitamins twice a day, cuz its filling and it keeps me going through the day. but i've also not been able to eliminate half the things doc said, it just ain't happening. how do you eliminate garic and chilli powder?? ITS ALMOST IN EVERYTHING. also soy/eggs is my best source of protein for me. i can't eliminate that.

tomatoes cause inflammation, so i elimintated that. my doc found some candida in me, so shes giving me some detoxying stuff, they told me eat yogurt, which i was doing very well with thankfully. i used to love patotoes but have given that as well. and olives, and mushrooms, and oranges and tangerines, and melons, and oatmeal -- used to be significant for me at brkfast as i dont eat meat. ... oh god the list goes on.


bucci,
do you like fish?chicken? if you can then you should focus on that. THEY ARE VERY HEALTHY (some types).

Humm, Pepp, you know what my energy drink is and I'm not even sure if it kosher lyme wise but it gives me energy and I feel like I had big breakfast.
Choline Coctail fro m twin Labs. It comes in a big glass jar. They have the red label which has sugar and the green label that has almost no sugar.
I put frozen blueberries and almond milk or water and grind it up in the bullet. It has choline and inosotol and guranna which is some type of plant caffine but it gets my brain going.

I used to throw in a raw egg and even use orange juice. and I used to use mediclear powder in it too. But even just blueberries , almond milk and choline coctail gets me up an around. also after I blend it I pour in little flax oil.
So I guess it is th guranna that gives it a kick. I should look up if that is even ok.

I eat chicken and make chicken soup with curry powder and celery and parsley and cilantro and basil and scallion and even thai curry paste (green) also I buy the little glass jars of crushed ginger and crushed garlic in health food store and throw little bit of that in there too.

for me curry is medicinal for my belly. I usually throw in curry powder and then add tumeric, cardimon and the rest is fresh herbs.

It's weard about the bacon but sometimes it can pull me out of a tail spin.
