Food fleeting thoughts

Postby Zohar » Mon Jan 02, 2017 2:30 pm UTC

Because every forum needs a fleeting thoughts thread.

I'm on vacation in Placencia, Belize, and it's going pretty great! The only frustrating part is the food. There's some delicious-looking stuff here, but it's very challenging to find vegetarian food. I've basically eaten red vegetable currie with coconut rice for three days now. Tasty, but repetitive. It's a good thing we're cooking in our rented place from time to time. Also going to eat at a place advertised as veggie friendly so I hope they'll have something different.

My boyfriend started making us smoothies, which means I was eating approximately 1.5-2 bananas a day, where prior I ate basically none. Additionally, since he's vegetarian, the easiest sources of protein for him (and thus us when we make meals together) have been tofu, tempeh, and a variety of beans of all sorts. I just got a metabolic panel done, and apparently my potassium is high. So my doc told me to lay off things high in potassium for a few weeks and retest. Sooooooo, no bananas, no beans of any kind (including soy), no to several other fruits, no potatoes (sorry, there's just no way that's going to happen -- I can lower intake of potatoes, but impossible to eliminate entirely). That's kinda darn frustrating.

I am fairly certain the high reading is because of the increased consumption as described above, but I really don't feel like it's been THAT much. Sigh.
