Reintroduction: Seeds

Today brings the reintroduction of seeds to a close. Seeds include chia seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, poppy seeds, caraway seeds, mustard seeds, black/white pepper, pine nuts, hemp, coffee, and chocolate. I have listed my food and reactions below for each day. Tomorrow begins the reintroduction of refined sugar.

Day 1

Breakfast: I woke up late, so I skipped breakfast.

Lunch: Chicken cooked in olive oil, honey, roasted cauliflower, carrots, and yellow squash.

Snack: Black coffee.

Dinner: Paleo meatloaf (ground beef, diced onion, riced cauliflower, diced dates, honey, mustard) and salad (lettuce, avocado).

Reactions: None.

Day 2

Breakfast: Banana.

Lunch: Salami, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and black coffee.

Snack: Paleo muffin (bananas, coconut milk, olive oil, honey, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt).

Dinner: Sweet potato and Brussels sprouts (roasted in olive oil with salt and pepper).

Reactions: A pimple is forming on my chin. I don’t know yet if it’s related.

Day 3

Breakfast: Banana.

Lunch: Salami, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, and black coffee.

Snack: Strawberry banana smoothie.

Dinner: Broccoli, carrots, and celery.

Reactions: I have a hard lump on the back of my neck. I suspect an ingrown hair, as I plucked a hair from that spot a few days ago. It was a hard, translucent hair that resembled a quill or a cat whisker. Apparently, this is a fairly common anomalous thing. I don’t know if it’s connected to autoimmunity. A second pimple is also developing.
