Last week, my "Foods to Choose" from Dietitian #1 listed:
Vegetables: Asparagus, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, green beans, green peppers, lettuce, spinach, wax beans, potato, potato chips (plain)
With the UVA list from Dietitian #2:
Fruits: Pineapples, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, lemons, limes, avocado, bananas, rhubarb, orange blueberry, grapefruit, grape, honeydew melon, kiwifruit, lemon, lime, passionfruit, mandarin, papaya, tangelo
Vegetables: Asparagus, cauliflower, green peppers, broccoli, leafy greens, celery, mushrooms, white potatoes, shallots, spinach, pea pods, cucumber, beans, other root vegetables
My food list increased about ten fold! I just have to monitor how much I'm each. Keep it small, space it out, listen to my gut. Fruit juice remains out. Ironically, drinking fruit juice is what was bringing me to the point of realizing I am fructose intolerant. I started religiously eating breakfast, which meant having a beverage. Only recently have I started tolerating milk alternatives straight from a glass (I grew up on Whole and 2% Milk, what a switch to watery rice milk!), so majority of the time, I had breakfast with a tall glass of 100% juice. The extra fructose from the juice left me without the fiber to properly digest it. Lots of articles online point to juice consumption as making people obese. How could I drink that juice and not put on a single pound? I stayed as skinny as ever. I've never been a stereotypical patient...
I'm excited to add a serving of approved fruit back into my diet! But more importantly, the list of vegetables is empowering! I went from being super panicked about what I was going to eat to having a much better control and game plan on eating and a ton more choices!!
