So I consulted a dietitian last week who recommended that I try an elimination diet. This version cuts out all dairy, wheat, and corn for 30 days, after which I am to try introducing one type of food (except for dairy, which is known to be bad) for a week at a time. So I went to Trader Joe's yesterday afternoon, bought a whole bunch of food, and am planning on starting the diet today.

As those of you who've read Michael Pollan know, avoiding corn altogether is pretty darn hard in today's food industry. (Which reminds me--[livejournal.com profile] damselfrog, I'm done with your copy of the book; can [livejournal.com profile] gigglefest borrow it?) Luckily I'm already eating mostly unprocessed food, so hopefully this diet won't be too much effort.

I will probably have to figure out a way to make some kind of wheat-less, corn-less bread for convenience's sake. At some point I'll go looking for other fun grains to try, maybe at Whole Foods or Harvest Co-op; the Trader Joe's at Coolidge Corner was out of quinoa and didn't seem to have any alternative flours (arrowroot, barley, etc).
