Today was my first real day on my low iodine diet. NOT FUN.
Here's what I ate:
Plain Cream of Wheat
Grilled Zucchini and Peppers with Mrs. Dash
Orzo Pasta Salad- Made with my homemade vinaigrette dressing with grape tomatoes and grilled asparagus
I did get a low iodine cookbook from the hospital (you can take a peek at it HERE) and tomorrow I plan on making some of the bread-ish items. Bread and cheese are what I miss the most. I did some cooking tonight so tomorrow I won't have to do so much. I made Asian cole slaw, egg salad (made with avocado instead of mayo- the jury is still out on this one), and I still have some orzo salad left.
The SUPER sucky part is that I think it will be 100% impossible for me to eat in a restaurant with these restrictions. I just can't control the way the food is prepared. JC and I are supposed to go out of town this weekend and I'm already stressing out about what food I'll have to bring with me.
Stupid fucking cancer.
