It was watermelon juice I believe, but I think it could be the fact that it was loaded with sugar. Unnaturally of course.

So far, I've spent $136 for this week on food. At the moment, I'm trying to create a system that is easy to follow.

Right now, the way I have it set up is: meal plan everything, try out the recipes (iodine test ingredients, figure out the correct portions, some modifications here and there), buy everything, prep everything, then cook 2-3 meals at a time.

I'm only cooking 2-3 meals at a time (and eating for a few days) because I need to see if I react to any of the ingredients in the recipes, this is the best way to figure out what works and what doesn't.

I've also been having problems with fitting all the produce in the fridge. I don't think I'll be able to just shop once a week, not with this kitchen anyway. Gotta look for more canned or frozen variety, not like there's that much of a difference in nutrients anyway.

Notes:
- create a system
- change recipes to accommodate space

By the way, has anyone had trouble eating cooked watercress?

At this moment I've been having a really hard time to be pain free, and I need a baseline to work with. I fasted the day before yesterday and the pain improved, but after I ate an omelet (eggs, salmon, ground blanched almonds), I still had pain yesterday morning. I think I may be sensitive to FODMAPs because although I've been watching what I eat, I haven't actually watched what I drink, which is usually soy or almond milk (with emulsifiers of course) with some honey to sweeten it.

So now I will go back to what I did before to become pain free and eat the most simplest ingredients, just literally steak/meat and mixed greens/vegetables. Might even be easier on the wallet too, we'll see.

I like to keep things simple. I have a few go-to meals that take only minutes to cook or don't require cooking at all. I find that if things get too complicated, I tend to cheat and end up paying for it later. I cook most of my meat ahead of time and freeze. This saves a lot of time when I get home from work. You may want to check out some crockpot recipes since you have limited counter space.

Good luck.

Yeah I've been trying to find some good slow cooker recipes but all the recipes always have some sort of starch in it, unless it's a soup or stew.

But anyway, I've just been having a rough time going pain free at the moment, and I had a bit of an incident last week (I had a piece of steak stuck in my esophagus and had to go to the hospital...). But I think for now, I will stick with salad greens, meat, and about a handful of "safe" vegetables. In other words, really, really strict. No rice, alcohol, or coffee. Plenty of probiotic foods though (sauerkraut, kvass, yogurt). Doesn't seem like this costo wants to leave me. Chest pains are worse than the back pain.
