Hi Bees! I had a thread a long time ago about IBS, and got some great feedback on there. I’ve been playing around with altering some things in my diet and working on managing stress, however the past two weeks have been some of the most miserable of my life. I’ve done a lot of research and decided to try an elimination diet that so many (on here and in person) have mentioned.
to any bees who have done this or something similar, what kind of meals have you done? Also am worried about going without caffeine and sugar for 2-3 weeks
the things i am avoiding for 2-3 weeks are:
dairy, gluten/wheat, nuts, legumes, beans, nightshades, shellfish, citrus, caffeine, sugar, and being mindful about what kind of meats I’m eating and the quality.
so, help with meal ideas. I can only think of a basic salmon and veggie and sweet potato. But what about breakfast? Blueberries? Maybe a smoothie?

Look into the AIP protocol. There are tons of recipes that might help you if you google AIP protocol and the AIP round table. My mom has gone through something similar and is following the AIP diet for her health since she has autoimmune disorders.

that’s what I was going to say. I’ll add to look up AIP Whole30.

My husband has pretty severe ibs so he has done elimination diets for awhile. Breakfast is usually eggs and fruit. I typically make a berry salad. Lunches are things like stir fry with coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, grilled chicken, tuna salad with out mayo. dinners are always some kind of fish, veggie and starch.
also have you looked into the low fodmap diet? There’s a cookbook that we found really helpful.

I did an elimination diet a while ago and used mostly Whole30 recipes. There are heaps of them on the internet and I found them really satisfying. Once you get into the rhythm of things, it gets a lot easier. Good luck!

check out whole 30 or keto recipes. a lot of them can be adapted to what you are looking for.
when i did whole 30, i did a lot of eggs for breakfast with a side of fruit or potatoes. you can also add compliant breakfast meats (a lot of bacon/sausages have sugar unfortunately, but stores are getting better at having whole 30 products).
