Being a Fussy Foodie

The Food Diary

So looking back on the food diary this week it’s a bit of foodie feast this week. The real highlights for me being the truly Fussy Foodie friendly Thai night in and the baking success with the egg free muffins.

My food restrictions are:
Sugar Free & Yeast Free (due to candida diet), intolerant to: gluten, dairy, eggs, some oily fish and cashew nuts.

NB. Also as part of a healthy balanced diet and to avoid energy lows I am aiming to eat 5 times a day; three main meals and two proper snacks (all of which must contain some protein). Each main meal needs to be eaten slowly with a balance of 1/4 carbs, 1/4 protein and 1/2 vegetables.

I really enjoyed my baking challenges this week, hences lots of additions of flour less chocolate cake and egg free muffins – need to work on making smaller batches so they are less regular in the food diary.

    Aurelie… tried almond before which was great – you have reminded me to get some more in stock, as they tend to contain much less salt that peanut butter and do taste great.
