So... the things we can eat mostly are not your everyday ingredients, but it a whole lot more than green smoothies!!

Today we had some hot cereal made from rice that mom blended, it was pretty good, too, once I put maple syrup on it! For lunch, we had quinoa and cabbage soup, YUM!!!!! Also, for a thicker consistency, we added a mixture of rice and lentils to it, which made it even better!!! Then for dinner we had steamed broccoli and rice and lentils mixed into it. Also YUM!!!! Thanks Mom for the good cooking! By the way about the rash...I woke up with it covering my upper body, It was cold last night, and sometimes I get it from being cold. So I guess I haven't quite done in Urticaria...oh well, maybe later on in the diet.

  1. So glad you are liking the food! :) I think we are learning to be more grateful for what we can eat. 2 days of Green Smoothies only will do that to ya, huh?! :) Love, Mom
