Here are screenshots from Cronometer detailing what I ate yesterday. I made no effort to be perfect – this is very similar to what I’ve been eating recently. Well actually the Toasted Cinnamon Squares were not an every-day thing…but they were really good so they might become an everyday thing.
So maybe I have a little work to do. This probably explains my increase in canker sores.
If I add in my multivitamin and vitamin D capsule it looks like this:
Even with supplementation I’m lacking choline (used to get it from eggs), calcium (used to get it from dairy), chromium (don’t know where I used to get that), and potassium (have been low for a long time).
I know it’s ideal to not need supplementation, but I’m going to start with these nutrients as they seem to be the harder ones for me to get. Fortunately Cronometer’s Oracle tells me where to find good sources of these nutrients:
Uh oh…it’s all animal stuff. Gonna have to do more research.
Hm…lots of dairy…fortified cereal and other stuff… Maybe just more spinach.
Hm….that doesn’t seem to be an option for the Oracle. I’m going to have to do further research on this one too.
Ok, well this gives me some ideas. So many high-potassium foods are high in histamine (avocados, bananas) or are nightshades (tomatoes) so I’ve been having a hard time with this one. Looks like I could be trying hearts of palm and bamboo shoots, among other things.
