8am: Bacon and scrambled eggs, seasoned with salt
12pm: Flank steak, mash potatoes (no butter), well cooked carrots (I also had this for dinner the night before)
2pm: Oily fish from a can (also had this the day before)
5pm: Oriental flavor Ramen, including seasoning (I took a Lactaid because I saw that it had lactose)
6pm: Tilapia (white fish) with white rice
Wow! This diet would put me in a flare for many reasons:
Bacon - pro-inflammatory. hard to digest. It's high in saturated fat. Was it organic? If not, it probably contains antibiotics.
Eggs - pro-inflammatory.
Steak - pro-inflammatory. Was it organic? If not, it probably contains antibiotics.
White potatoes - pro-inflammatory.
Carrots - OK
Oily fish from a can - OK, except for the sodium. Should limit canned fish to one per week.
Oriental flavor Ramen - processed foods are pro-inflammatory. Did the sauce contain MSG? If so, that can really put some people into a flare.
Tilapia -probably contains antibiotics.
White rice - OK
I know it costs more to buy wild fish and organic meats, but if you buy cheaper cuts (chicken instead of steak and bacon ), mix your fish with other things (make salmon burgers, salmon rice), eat at home, and avoid processed foods, then you should see your food bill go down and your health improve. There are also ways you can still eat healthy even when there is no time to cook. For example, have a banana with sunflower butter instead of Ramen noodles. It should end up being cheaper too.
