Day Two:

Day Two:

I met up with a friend for breakfast. The only options for me to consume that complied with the elimination diet is an all fruit breakfast.

I was able to order a strawberry and banana (rosacea.org considers this a trigger by it is also a cool food and anti-inflammatory hence why I eat them) smoothie. I also ordered ginger tea (considered a warm food but is anti-inflammatory) and a bowl of fruit. The breakfast was very filling and overly sweet. I wish there were more eggless, breadless, milkless options.

Lunch was the leftover shrimp on top of red quinoa mixed with roasted brussel sprouts. I cooked the quinoa by the directions on the bag but I added salt, pepper, and turmeric to the simmering session.

Dinner was a ‘Green’ Smoothie. It was delicious. Please continue reading for the recipe.

Note: Honey is option. I know that some of you starting this diet has never had a green smoothie and are not used to the flavor. Adding a little bit will help you get used to the smoothies and over time you can take this option out to see if this is a trigger.
