Lectin-free, Week 3 update . . .
Well, this is exciting. Not really. This is currently my 3rd attempt at posting this update. Firefox is giving me fits today.
There hasn’t been much change from last week, as far as physical symptoms go. What has changed is that the local weather has gotten so hot during the day that I can’t sleep, making doing our laundry at night a serious challenge. I think I’m going to have to adapt a “1 load per day, just before sunrise” type of program to get through the summer.
Going lectin-free is proving to be a more difficult challenge than we had hoped. Some of our basic staples have lectins in them, and finding substitutes is a continuous experiment. For example – sweet potatoes can substitute for Idaho potatoes in some things, but sweet potatoes make lousy hash browns. They don’t cook right. Rutabaga has an unusual flavor, but will do a good job as a potato substitute.
Anyway, we’re still trying to meet the challenge. Life is Strange.
