Hi, I'm Cate!
In 2017, I learned I have one kidney smaller than the other and have too much protein in my system. Among other things, the doctor prescribed changing to a low-protein, low-sodium, vegetarian diet.
In early 2018, I was told to cut out dairy and egg yolks all together, and to generally avoid all saturated fats. So, this vegetarian food journal is on its way to becoming vegan.
My kidney condition is not the only thing I'm up against. I also have a thyroid disorder, and to make sure my medication is effective, I can't have soy. So this is a tofu-free zone.
I'm calling this site a food journal because I'm hoping it will help me better plan out my meals and keep track of what I eat and drink throughout the day.
The goal is to share my favorite recipes, keep my body healthy, and maybe lose some %@&# weight.
I am not a nutritionist or a doctor. My health conditions are specific and my diet won't be for everyone, but I'm sure there's something for everybody here.
