After each meal, I get some sort of reaction to what I’ve eaten. I view my gut microbiota as a town that’s – in my case – really pissed off. It’s pretty much a modern version of ‘just prior to the French Revolution’ in there, my boyfriend and I discuss it as such (see image above).
Tonight, I made my first recipe from the Koufman diet (low-acid) – Spaghetti with Clam Sauce – with a modification – instead of pasta, I julienned zucchini and ate the clam sauce with that. The recipe was flavored with clam juice, ginger and lemon zest. Really had a lot of flavor – very nice to eat something that was more of a dish than just roasted meat and roasted veggies. That said, without the pasta, I am feeling very hungry 2 hours later. Also, it supposedly made 4 servings which may be true with actual pasta, but I could have eaten the whole thing and even more using the ‘zoodles’. I kept myself to half (2 servings) and added a small sweet potato. Unfilling. Still, very little response from the peanut gallery. I’ll take it. Yum.
