insert whiney voice from my daughter. And I respond with, "we would know more, but since the sneaking of food hasn't stopped, we have to start over again and again." And then she stomps to her room and says "I HATE THIS DIET!"
Yeah, so do I.
Probably the majority of this blog could be commentary for hate, hate, hate, hate. It is rather depressing, eh? I agree. And given my mood as of late, I am wallowing in it too. I am sick and tired of telling my daughter no, no, no, no to everything she asks to eat.
Some of the things she has been able to tolerate thus far - or I am fairly positive are okay:
gluten free bread or sourdough bread
Rice (which she gags on so she refuses to eat it)
Potatoes ( I usually cut these up, mix in olive oil, and bake them for her; she refuses mashed tators)
fruity pebbles (amazing, huh - but I find that most of the ladies on a support board can tolerate it as well)
Rice chex (which we have on hand as I also have my son who has Celiac)
eggs (I have taken to making an egg on a sourdough muffin [orowheat] and she eats this)
frozen blueberries (they are grubbin right out of the freezer; eaten in moderation)
small amounts of koolaid made with cane sugar
strawberries (again in moderation)
cheese (check the ingredients - this goes on the muffin too)
french toast made with gf bread or sourdough bread
lunch meat (check the ingredients; meat with no bbq sauce or plain (i.e. steak, hamburger, pork chops, ribs - we get organic meat from my father-in-law's farm)
rice pasta - Tinkyada has one
Annie's Gluten Free Rice Pasta Mac n Cheese
She will have nachos with chips and cheese only
All sugar substitutes are a no-go for her and cause her rash to explode in irritation.
speaking of rash, I had to take her in to the clinic for asthma meds and her rash was mentioned. The doctor (who she has never seen) was adament that it was NOT a yeast rash. Sigh. I will try and do some more research and see if I can print of stuff to take to her regular GI doc and pray he can find some more answers. Someone else mentioned milk protein - I am wondering if there is a way to test for that as well and see if that is bothersome to her. Not sure on that one.
Anyways, I hope this list will help anyone else not sure where to begin. I am over a year into this and still don't know where to begin and continue to walk the path in dazed confusion.
