Balanced for me too, fish three times a week, meat once, loads of fruit, herbs, green stuff, veg, no bread unless I go up the road and fetch one roll, not supposed to eat cheese, had to cut my marg out and olive oil, I am supposed to eat nuts and dried fruit but I can only do that in small amounts otherwise I feel sick. I have also found that I cannot eat salads unless in small quantity, I used to eat whole platefulls and really enjoy them but body says no now. Doctor keeps giving me blood tests so I can’t cheat very often or he will rub his big belly and tell me off for bad eating habits, cholesterol blah blah. I only have one over-ready meal a week on my worst day.
I do enjoy naughty things, can’t drink hardly as I feel terrible for days and I do substitute some sugar for sweeteners although this is to lose weight only. They make me feel a little odd and I do remember being sent a link some years ago about MS sufferers staying away from sorbitol I think it was or one of those as it stirred things up a bit! (I should check this, I could be wrong about which one it was).
There are quite a few things since MS that I cannot even smell without feeling ill, so I stick to my good things that I know and love and do not venture to try new things, in case it lays me out for days on end. Funny enough though, a friend helped me out last week and I offered to cook, he wanted a curry so we ordered in (not something I would do for me or eat one out). I loved it, he then sent me a text at 5.30 the next morning asking if I was rushing about as he was and it woke him up. No was my answer, I was fine.
Mr Waitrose has delivered my super healthy food and I have eaten - er all the nasty stuff first. Oh well, the thought was there. Now I left with all the green things. I keep buying glace cherries to make a cake then eating them out of the container. Bad girl!
