No, this is NOT a Paleo recipe. This is a pre-Paleo recipe I made a few weeks ago, and it was goooood.
I love avocado, and slapping some cheese and bacon on top of it just made it better. I do miss cheese a bit. Bread? Eh. I found some really good wheat-free soy-free rolls at the commissary, so I've been eating those with sandwiches. My Doc is giving me a lactose test, Celiac Disease test and gluten test next week to see if I have any issues with that stuff. He said if I don't, then knock of this hard-core Paleo thing and add wheat and dairy back into my diet. He's really harping on me to gain weight. I'm doing my best, but it's hard.
I may add little of that stuff back in, but not nearly as much as I used to eat. Probably just things like oatmeal for breakfast, a yogurt here and there. I really like this healthy eating thing, so I'm gonna stick with it. No more blocks of cream cheese and sour cream sauces, topped with a stick of butter.
I also meet with a dietitian next week. Hopefully she can give me some tips on how to eat healthy with Crohn's Disease and also try and gain weight. A tough thing to do.
Ok guys, I'm off to go pick up my Mama! We're heading out on this beautiful day to grab some lunch. I don't know where we're going since she's picking, but I'm sure it's some place I do NOT want to go. She has the worst taste in restaurants. Sorry Mom...no offense, but it's really terrible ;)~
