-- Ahem -- Sorry about that

I'm so glad you have a sense of humor.  :)

Perhaps you'll like this one I wrote in college a little better?

A bad haiku, just for you

Fall in VA

Puff of fur and meat:
mostly inside out, poor thing.
Should have looked both ways.

More Change on the wind

Ah, Change.

I always wonder why things can't just be stable with my health, but as many of us with auto-immune disorders know, that's not always the case.

In a frustrating turn of events, I've started to feel pretty lousy again, and my doctor put me on a new fast to rule out another food-driven issue. I am now restricted to eating only

  • fruits
  • vegetables
  • meat
  • fish
No dairy, no grains, no potatoes or corn (because I eat them both almost daily).

Good news: I've already lost 5 pounds.
Bad news: I have no idea how to cook...

So....  THE POINT of this little story is to reach out to those of you who may be vegetarians or who eat a wide variety of vegetable dishes. I like vegetables, I really do. But...
  • I need carbs. I can't really function well or keep my blood sugar as stable as I like without them.
  • I need variety. There's only so many salads I can handle.
  • I need to stay away from soy and dairy. 
  • I need to do this for at least 2 weeks.
  • I need ideas. How do you keep variety and interest in what you eat? How do you keep your nutrition balanced?
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.  If you have a favorite reference, cookbook, website, or recipe you can share, that would be awesome.
