Low Iodine: Day 1

Today was my first real day on my low iodine diet. NOT FUN.

Here's what I ate:

Plain Cream of Wheat

Dried Pineapple
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.


  1. Stupid fucking cancer indeed! Sounds no fun at all! (((hugs)))

  2. Holy crap, you're going to lose some weight with that little food!

    I'm totally interested in that Asian coleslaw though, I'll have to check out that recipe.

    As for this weekend, that sucks -- I'm sorry. :(

  3. That sucks! I do heart orzo and avocados though...
    I know people who have to eat gluten-free have similar issues in restaurants - maybe you'll get lucky and go somewhere accommodating where they can make something just for you?
