Fibromyalgia and Diet – Week 8

Hello dearest readers!

Sorry this weeks Fibromyalgia and Diet post has been delayed. I won’t bore you with the details why but anyone with fibromyalgia will know that some days are good and others are, well, not so good.

I returned to work last week and so far so good. I am enjoying being back, and being part of a team. So far my symptoms have been manageable, even if I am a little more tired.

I had high hopes for the weekend just passed to finalise my carrot cake recipe but a nasty bug put a stop to that, hence only my ACV salad dressing recipes last week. I’m also realising that I need to get a catalogue of recipes and photos together for those time when I’m not so well! That way I’ll always have something to post!

For now, here is some of last weeks food that I enjoyed as part of my anti inflammatory diet to treat fibromyalgia.

First day back at work and I needed a proper power breakfast. Homemade granola with coconut yoghurt and kiwi fruit.

The base for my carrot cake recipe which I will aim to make this weekend and then share with you, health permitting! However, everyone who enjoyed a piece of this cake were complimentary!

Working lunch – Being gluten and dairy free means yo have to be well prepared for work. For this I simply marinated some chicken in lemon juice, chilli and parsley then served with some lambs lettuce, lemony quinoa and pistachios.

Moroccan Chicken – Slightly adapted from this recipe, I stuffed the chicken with onions, raisins and almonds. Paired with a rainbow salad it made for a nutritious lunch!

Apple Cider Vinegar – for anyone that missed it you can find my post about why I’m having ACV as part of my dietary changes here

Hope you enjoyed this weeks instalment. Remember all the ideas and recipes I share are Gluten and Dairy free and suitable for an anti inflammatory diet!
