So what did I eat?

12 Feb

Not sure.  I posted a few days back about my stomach being upset, and not sure what caused it.  I did do some controlled experiments with the things that I had eaten that day.  I ate the pancakes and the bacon, and didn’t have any problems (thank goodness….I’m not sure what I would have done if bacon and almond flour and eggs were now causing me problems!!!).  I then ate some dates with pecans in them.  Again, no problems.  So…..there are two things that I think could have caused it:

1) I could have overdone the dates.  Even though 2 or 3 shouldn’t be a problem, eating 4 or 5 a day for 4 days in a row was probably too much.  I’ll just have to try and find some restraint when it comes to that.  🙂

2) It could just be this drat disease.  It’s very typical with Crohn’s to have an upset system, even though you didn’t eat anything at all that would have caused it.  It is just something to be aware of, and deal with when it happens.  Sigh….

Good news is that things seem to be doing well now.  I’ve eaten a lot of almond flour products this week (the cinnamon rolls I made only lasted 3 days!), and I’ve not had problems.  I hope it continues to do well, and that this one episode will not happen again anytime soon!
