FODMAP, GF, Turkeyloaf

Hello there!  It was a steamy day in upstate NY today!  I love summer. 
I’ve been trying to stay well hydrated this week.  That can be difficult with hot weather, but also with GI sicknesses (diarrhea!).  I can’t begin to explain how great it is to feel well after having had a week with sickness.

I spent a lot of this week on a liquid diet except for a few meals…

And I continued with my workout regimen…which, I learned I should have been more prepared for!  For example, at the pool on Friday I was getting muscle cramps from dehydration so I picked up one of these babies and it hit the spot (thanks to a little Potassium)!

After a visit to the GI Dr, I am now on a more restrictive diet than Gluten Free alone… I am on the FODMAP diet until further testing gets to the root of why I’ve been so sick lately.  So…get ready for the first FODMAP days!!!

Breakfast this morning was a simple one: scrambled eggs, basic chicken sausage (and a little bacon)!

I had a mid-morning snack before heading to the farmer’s market…  IMG_20130706_095554_430

While at the Farmer’s Market, I met a woman who has a local Gluten Free catering business.  She told me all about her experience with health and what led her to start her own business.  I have to say, I was very impressed with her entrepreneurial vision!  (I did buy a brownie to share with my husband for dessert!)

And lunch was some GF turkey slices from Hormel..more celery and sunflower butter 🙂 Have you had sunflower butter?  What did you think of the taste?

My husband did a lot of biking today, so I prepared a low FODMAP GF Turkey Meatloaf for dinner.  I have to say, it was pretty good!IMG_20130706_191315_237

So all is well that ends well, right?!  We had a delicious dinner followed by a beautiful sunset walk.  Hope you had a great day!
