Windwaker,

It looks great, but I think you might want to add some variety in there or you'll get bored with it. One way to spice things up is to learn to make some sauces/gravies that you like that you can put on grains and veggies. Find a recipe for a vegan "cheesy" sauce or mushroom gravy or whatever.

I made some quinoa patties the other night that were basically quinoa, veggies, and sunflower seeds. We ate them with lettuce and vegan aioli.


My regimen:

Eat regularly: a wide variety of vegetables, eggs, meat/fish, cheese, yogurt, butter, fruit, nuts/seeds.

Occasionally eat: beans, squash, potatoes.

Don't eat: sugar, grains, most processed food.

wow. thats very similar to the freeacnebook.com sample diet. It looks like you're going in the right direction.

Variety is bliss though. maybe throw in a peach, plum, orange, or banana here and there.

Those Brazil Nuts are defintely stabalizing your blood sugar levels from all those apples and pears.

Thats a great idea though, never thought of doing that.

Finding the recipes is not too hard. 

veganchef.com has some good ones.

Or go to a bookstore and get a vegan cookbook. I recommend A celebration of wellness by Nathalie Cedarquist.  It has great recipes that are really healthy. 

Or pm me and I can give you some good recipes.

i have some stuff to say...

if you like fish, then you should defeinitely put salmon into your diet. it is important to get protein with every meal and omega-3 also. Salmon has both and high levels of it. plus... IT'S GOOD. i buy frozen filets and bake them in the oven. (of course, putting spices and stuff on it)

also, try berries to substitue for some of those apples. they have natural antioxidants that help in anti-inflammatories.

also, try salad with extra virgin olive oil and a lil lemon juice..... olive oil is GREAT for acne... helps absorb omega-3.

one more thing... buy ground flax seed and sprinkle it on practically everything.... has LOTS of omega-3. ur skin will thank you for the effort. believe me!

Olive oil goes rancid pretty quick, and then you have to buy the organic extra virgin kind, which is not easily obtainable and expensive. I would just go for avocado, dipped with Celtic Seasalt, to fulfill your fat, the healthy kind, requirement. It's cheap, not much hassle, and surprisingly tasty, and most importantly healthy.

Thanks for all the tips guys, much apprciated.

About the fish, i would love to add it back in to my diet but i have heard that it is a top allergen so im not sure.

Can somebody recommend some other meats which i could include back in to my diet.

Thx,

Tom :-)

any meats except red meat is ok.... it is important to get protein that is why. (eggs are good too.... despite what everyone will try to tell you about them being bad)

what do you mean when u say that fish is a top allergen?

Thx for the reply,

I have read that fish has a lot of iodine and mercury in it, aswell as other things and it is the most likely to trigger a reaction.

well i dunno but from this book that was highly recommended it says that eating LOTS of salmon ( as well as other fish) is highly good for your acne..... i eat salmon just about every day for dinner.... and it's done nothing but help me.

You are certainly on the right track and I applaud your efforts at such a great diet. Peaches and plums are very low on the glycemic index. I would replace the carrots and peas with more broccoli - you should have LOTS of green veggies. Kale, collards, spinach. Sprouts are great too as is cabbage. I would include beans cooked with no oils or meats -lentils, pinto, anazazi, black, etc.... If you are still breaking out, then cut out the rice even though it is brown. Dr. Mann who is studying teen boys and acne says to look for low GI labeled foods and get a book that lists GI of foods such as Jennie Brand-Miller's various GI books, but there are many others. The brown rice is probably the only thing you mention that could be still high GI (there are even different types of brown rice) His subjects ate limited amounts of

whole grain products and limited amounts of rice (low GI basmati) but no high GI carb foods. Just remember - fiber fiber fiber. Add some grilled fish too. See my new post with my whole list of what we did to stop my son's acne.

i think any fish is ok..... just watch out... because some fish will have high amounts of mercury which is bad for your overall health. (such as tuna)

Snack:

Bowl of pasta

2 slices garlic bread

Dinner:

2 pieces chicken

various steamed vegetables

wild rice

2 glasses water

1 piece chocolate cake

1 glass milk

What I plan to eat after typing this:

1 bowl of Count Chocula w/ 170 mL of 1% milk
