Elimination Diet: Week 2

Another week ....the first few days were tough because we had company in town and groceries were starting to dwindle. We chose to eat out, which makes it difficult to avoid spices and the rest of my list. I tried the best I could, but a few of the days my headaches and tummy problems returned and my energy was completely zapped! Wednesday, I had an all day training and did well except for lunch. For the vegetarians, they had small wheat buns (on my list) topped with lettuce (on my list), tomato, avocado (on my list) and cream cheese (on my list)  with sides of fresh fruit and green salads. I was starving and had one sandwich with the sides, about an hour later my head started getting heavy and it quickly developed into a painful headache that lingered for the remainder of the day. Maybe it was the lunch or a build up of delayed reactions from the previous days. Either way,  I vowed to get back on track Thursday.
