Things are a little crunchy time-wise around here, but I wanted to drop by with a quick update. After 6 weeks on the elimination diet, we have added eggs.
[First egg in 6 weeks! For breakfast, with millet and turnip greens.]
Interestingly (and surprisingly, to me), I saw a difference in my skin. The biggest change I’ve noticed during the elimination phase is that my skin got much clearer. So, it was easy to detect that the day after I ate my first egg, I started to break out a little. It’s definitely not a bad reaction, as far as food reactions go, but I decided to back off on eggs for a while so that I have a clean ‘palate’ to notice differences from other foods. It’s less, “Oh no, I have a pimple because I ate an egg” and more that I’m curious if anything else will have a similar effect.
In the future, I will definitely be eating eggs. It’s not a bad trade-off..

But how my body reacts to the foods that I eat feels like a cool knowledge to have.
