My journey back from autoimmune disease

Autoimmune Protocol Step 4

on April 23, 2013

Yesterday was my first day without nuts!  This might seem inconsequential, but it turns out that I eat a LOT of nuts.  For instance, I realized that I had nuts at every meal one day last week.  I had pine nuts in the pesto I put over my eggs at breakfast.  Then I had toasted pecans on my chicken salad at lunch.  I don’t always snack during the day, but that particular day I had some almond butter with strawberries.  And then at dinner we had sliced almonds on our green beans.  While every day is not that nut heavy, it is going to be an adjustment.  I do think that the autoimmune protocol is helping though so it will be worth it.  I haven’t had any really bad bloating for 7-10 days now.  I have had some mild discomfort a few times, but that is still a vast improvement.  There is also still some stuff going on with my skin that I suspect could be autoimmune/food related.  Hopefully the nut removal will help.  Only time will tell.
