It’s been over a week now that I’ve avoided dairy/gluten/all nuts including coconut. So what have I been eating? I’m sort of obsessed with rice cakes, which is really a good thing given I have about 4 things of them right now (oops). Also-mangoes are officially in season! As are blueberries-YAY! So here’s a few snapshots of the past week.


BBQ chicken salad-BBQ chicken from Trader Joe’s, avocado, corn, tomato, tortilla chips, red pepper, and a simple lime/olive oil dressing


Chicken with ketchup, roasted broccoli. Super basic.


Chicken, roasted broccoli, and a sweet potato with non-dairy butter (Earth Balance).


Papaya+ Sunbutter&J rice cake.


Salad, chicken, microwave brown rice and quinoa.


Guacamole salad with chicken.


My pre-long run meal, which has kind of evolved and morphed in the best few years. In theory, it is banana+egg pancakes. But it has to be microwave friendly. And I always used to add cocoa powder but chocolate hasn’t been treating my stomach well (I’m a hot mess clearly). And then I started throwing in oats for more carbs!


First meal back at the dining hall-turkey burger, salad, steamed veggies. This was pretty much the only stuff friendly to my super restrictive diet…




Hummus salad with chicken, plus a fruit bar. I like finishing on something sweet!


Breakfast-an egg+veggies, a pear with sun butter.


I really liked this fruit bar from Trader Joe’s! It was chia and flax seeds for a little texture and staying power!


Hummus salad with egg.


Dining hall meal-roasted cauliflower, quinoa and yams, lentils, and chicken curry over rice.


Easter egg+mango. Classic.



Typical dining hall meal.



More eggs, shockingly. This time in the form of egg salad! FYI-egg salad over plain lettuce is super boring. To create this, I got to be the super cool person who brought back a big bowl of mayo and mustard from the dining hall. Yum?

Any favorite gluten/dairy/nut free foods I should try?

    Oh my goodness, I just ate dinner less than a hour ago and your making me want a huge sweet potato and peanut butter, and butter! And everything in this post! haha, yum and poor me. If it wasn’t raining and lightning I would probably drive to the store to get a potato. The cravings are real.

      I’ve had unexplained nausea for about 2 months now!
