I’ve been preparing to run a series of classes about nutrition for the Lyme disease diet. In preparation for this program I am reading a book by Dr. Nicola McFadzean, ND called The Lyme Diet. The book is easy to read and full of great ideas for those that suffer from chronic Lyme disease. One of the chapters is called “Quick and Easy Ideas for Success”. The ideas are very simple and can be applied to anyone thinking of changing their diet. I wanted to share them with you so you could get a head start on making changes to your diet. #2 is my favorite.
Also, I need a name for my series. If you think of one, please share!
- Make extras of everything and take the leftovers for lunch the next day.
- Don’t hesitate to eat dinner food for breakfast.
- Keep snacks in your car/bag/work for emergencies- a little baggie of raw nuts, a Larabar, or a baggie of protein powder you can mix with water on the fly.
- Check out the gluten-free section of your grocery store. You can find almost every kind of food now!
- Before going out to dinner, check with a restaurant to make sure they can do a gluten free meal. Most are happy to work with you.
- Take shortcuts-buy ready-made salads such as those found at Trader Joe’s. Buy bags of prewashed lettuce and other greens, bags of baby carrots and baby tomatoes- you can throw a salad together without even having to cut up the veggies.
- For eating out, purchase individual packets of gluten-free soy sauce and carry them with you. If you want to go for sushi or Asian food you’ll be ready.
- You can always order full meals that are healthy and prepared for you- gfmeals.com is a good one.
