Well, day 2 on the Low Iodine Diet (LID). I am doing GRRRR8! Going to work in my office too (in my house :) I love my job online!!! Nothing like taking driving away from someone that doesn't have to drive, right? My husband picked up the "bus" driving duties and I am lovin' that! Soon the Slo-Mo will set in and I am ready. I have loads of staples and fruit/veggies. I have decided that I will do this without meat this time.
I have had no luck finding a butcher that doesn't get pre-packaged meats. All these stores that cut in front of us, yeah just a front, wow. I spoke with butchers from Meijer, Walmart, Kroger, and more; sadly, they get there beef cryo-packaged and thus they cannot say whether is has a salt solution or treatment in the meat.
It turns out most grocers do that. I was told to go to the cattleman's association. If I found another family to split a cow, I could get fresh. Sorry, I don't have a deep freezer folks. I suppose that I should just raise the cow, chicken, or pig next time. Anywho, the LID only allows 5 oz a day... I'd have meat forever.
Vegan, it just sounds funny doesn't it? Like "Hello, I am an alien and your food is not good enough". Well, I won't go that far. I love meat (and whole eggs)! I will miss it like chocolate, sigh. At least I can still make brownies and cakes from LID safe coco and egg whites. Speaking of that, I actually tried the eggies and they work great! It is cool to have "some" protein on a salad. I even managed my own bread for homemade croutons :)
After all of this searching for "LID safe food", I have learn to love looking at packaging. I figure that if have the ingredients take up most of the nutrition label and most words are unpronounceable... it is bad for anyone, let alone a cancer patient! I am sticking with actual God grown items and I will be bless and full! This battle will be like a turtle running a long marathon uphill carrying the hare. Only God knows the outcome, but His grace is enough.
