I can work around no raw leafy greens, although I do like salads. I especially like salads with blue-cheese dressing... a double no-no. I'm doing OK on the no leafies and no dairy; no sugar is really hard, because it's in absolutely everything. Since I haven't had sodas in years, and my "candy" consumption was basically one bar of artisanal chocolate per month, dropping that was easy. I used to love to make scones, and I was actually getting pretty danged good at it... those, I miss.
So, I'm watching the Food Network, and Alton Brown (my favorite non-animated TV personality) is showing off this lovely carrot recipe, which involves butter (oh dear) and sugar, in the form of ginger ale (oh bother). A double whammy, on the new diet.
Then I pop over to another channel who's showing the original Japanese Iron Chef. Tonight: It's "battle sea cucumber."
Sea cucumber is, I must admit, not high on my "yummy" list. But it did make me realize...
I have more options than I think.
I'm going to try to remember that, the next time I start getting into a funk over "I can't do X any more because of the M.S."
Remember battle sea cucumber: you have more options than you think.
