Autoimmune Protocol Days 3-5

I decided that I would start posting every couple a days with all my meals, and some updates. I thought it was unnecessary to tell you guys about the left overs I was eating if it was a majority of my meals, or if I wasn’t seeing any progress. If something Major happens, or any big change, I will be sure to update! Once Finals are over, I’m hoping I can post more creative recipes when I have time to develop them.

Lets talk about leftovers though. They are my savior!! Especially on the  days when I go right from school, straight to work. It’s just easier to cook a bunch while you are doing it, and then it makes the next day or so a breeze.

Like last night, I made dinner for a bunch of my friends. I grilled way more than enough food, but I knew it wasn’t going to go to waste, I was planning on being able to eat it for a couple more meals. I ate that food again in my breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I didn’t have to cook at all today!

As for how my skin is, I can’t tell if I am actually less itchy, or if its psychological. I feel like overall I have not been itchy the last couple days, besides a few small posts. My rashes are still healing, but no new ones have formed.

Heres what I ate the last three days.

Day 3:

Breakfast: 4 oz ground turkey, a whole mashed avocado, steamed spinach, and a few pieces of watermelon.

Snack: Black Coffee 12 oz

Lunch: kale topped with left over turkey burger, carrots, mushrooms, some ranch seasoning, and 3 oz bone broth.

Snack: 1/2 cup semi-frozen pumpkin puree with cinnamon

Dinner: Grilled Chicken Breast, daikon hash browns, and cauliflower mash

 

Day 4:

I ate more meat today than I typically would have. I was just extra hungry during the day, and in the situation I was in, the only snack available to me was a source of protein.

Breakfast: 1/4 Cup toasted coconut, some left over chicken

Snack: Black coffee 12 oz, part of a left over turkey burger

Lunch: the rest of the left over chicken, the rest of the cauliflower mash from the night before.

Dinner: Turkey burger  topped with avocado, a slice and a half of uncured good sourced bacon, grilled pineapple, and onion over a bed of mixed greens, a couple roasted carrots, a few chunks of grilled zucchini, and 3 acorn squash wedges. I ate another half slice of pineapple as I was cutting it up.

Day 5:

Breakfast: left over meat from last night, 1 piece grilled pineapple, 1/4 cup toasted coconut

Lunch: Mixed green salad with mushrooms, onions, purple saurkerkraut, and broccoli with some lemon juice squeeze on top. Some tuna, and 2 small pickles on the side.

Snack: 1/4 cup semi-frozen frozen pumpkin puree with ground cinnamon

Dinner: Left over meat, and veggies from last night.

 

I also just want to make one more note about how I try to include some grass-fed gelatin gummies, fermented foods, and bone broth into my diet. I have not posted these in what I have been eating, but just so people are aware, I am consuming these occasionally. They are great for your health, especially for those following an autoimmune protocol. If you are interested in where I buy them, how I make them, or what brands I use, just ask!

  1. Coconut milk and pumpkin puree, with spices, is a great smoothy and good for you. If you can have bananas, that could be added, too.

    Sounds like you are able to come up with food that is satisfying for you. I love all the things you can do with cauliflower. I’ve been gathering many cauliflower recipes.
