HELP! On Macrobiotic Diet, where/what can I eat?

ChefLisa | Mar 3, 2004 12:41 AM

Hi y'all. You haven't heard from me for a while because I have been quite ill and was not able to be diagnosed (don't you just love HMOs?) until recently. Seems I have fibromyalgia aggravated by anxiety attacks and some hormonal issues (ladies you know what I mean). I am now working with a nutritionist who has me on the STRICTEST diet -- no red meat, no sugars, no dairy, no eggs, no wheat/spelt/kamut/rye, etc., no gluten, no caffeine, no soy products...

As you can see this has pretty much eliminated me as an official Chowhound for a while until I can get off this anti-inflammatory diet. It's kind of macrobiotic, I can eat chicken, fish, turkey, lamb (no shellfish), seasonings but no sauces, almost any veggie except corn, brown/white rice, potatoes (regular and sweet), most fruits except oranges. Organic is preferred to eliminate chemicals.

That all being said, where can I still get a decent meal that won't wreck my delicately balanced system now?

I live in SFV/Van Nuys area, and I love Follow Your Heart but don't know if they can meet all my weird omissions (especially the no soy products).

Any recommendations are welcomed and I really miss all you guys! Hoping that later in the year, I will be able to add some foods back in and once again Chow Down with my fellow Hounds!
