Eating for Remission

I am still eating super clean…which for me means no flour, no wheat, and no sugar.  I am actually fine with this.  I still believe that eating this way helped me go into remission for my UC a few years ago.  Well, it has been almost 7 months and I can’t seem to get back into remission.  And this really sucks.   I do not want to take a scary medication, or go back to those sexy enemas, so I am slowly weaning myself off dairy.  I hate that I have to do this.  Cheese is awesome.  So, so awesome.   So is Greek yogurt.  And I don’t even want to talk about coffee with almond milk instead of half and half.

Salsaritas burrito bowl:  chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, red onions, and cilantro.  (no beans/rice/cheese/sour cream)  I am so ready for this March Project 12 to be over so I can eat elsewhere!

The worst picture of the most delicious breakfast ever.  Veggie burger with fried egg on top.

Boiled egg, avacado, and barely choked down the coffee with almond milk.

I am focusing on protein, healthy fats, and vegetables.  I am not eating much fruit and by the way I really miss Diet Coke.  Does the craving ever go away?
