So here I am on week ten of the psoriasis study trying to be good and follow the diet plan which includes cutting out any cow's milk products including whey, eggs and bananas. I've done an okay job in following the requirements. I switch out almond milk for cream in my coffee (oh how I miss my sugar-free creamer). I don't eat bananas even though they whisper my name each time I go by their display in the supermarket. I cut out eggs completely except are donuts made with eggs? And what about the times the guy in the fast-food place screwed up my order and didn't leave off the eggs or cheese?
That is why I say I'm doing okay. It hasn't been perfect, but I'm trying. Week 13 and the end of my need to keep these foods out of my diet is just around the corner. Not to mention that I am allergic to them. I have GI distress and they are contributing factors to my having plaque psoriasis.
So now what do I do? Do I keep cutting them out of my diet or do I add them back in? I miss eggs on my breakfast sandwiches and burritos. I miss eating hard-boiled eggs and cottage cheese, sour cream and cheese in general. Oh bother (as pooh would say). What to do? What to do?
