Elimination diet - ideas appreciated!

Olive123 | Jan 17, 2014 10:20 AM

I am feeling a bit desperate. With such a long list of no no foods I am having a hard time coming up with ideas. Roasted or otherwise simply prepared veggies and rice or salads are all I can think of. Luckily this is only for a few weeks and then I can start adding items back in, but until I figure out what to eat I have been pretty hungry! I don't want to rely on frozen or other prepared meals from Whole Foods-type places, although I have filled in a couple of meals with those in a pinch already. (Choices are limited anyway within the parameters.) I am very thankful in advance for any ideas! I figured it would be easier to be creative from a step away.

I cannot eat:
- meat, fish, poultry (vegetarian)
- dairy
- eggs
- soy
- gluten
- bananas
- apples
- citrus
- avocados
- beans
- tomato
- mushrooms
- onions
- corn
- nuts
- alcohol, including cooked
- anything pickled, fermented or marinated
- MSG

Thanks again!
