doctor's orders.

Unfortunately I have been put on a fun new diet - doctor's orders. I secretly hoped he would tell me nothing was wrong, or that I needed to eat more chocolate. Of course not.

Here's what I "get" to avoid:

-sugar (white, brown, honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, etc.)
-yeast. meaning baked goods like bread, rolls, crackers, bagels, pastries, and muffins.
-anything with gluten. meaning bread and pasta.
-vinegar (except apple cider vinegar), mayo, mustard, pickles, ketchup, BBQ sauce (<-- that's unreasonable), and any commercial salad dressings.
-peanut butter, peanuts, and pistachios (are you kidding me!? I live off of my peanut butter)
-coffee, black tea, cider, root beer, alcohol - okay this one won't be a challenge at all.
-aged, moldy, and processed cheeses. No blue cheese or cream cheese or mac and cheese.
-processed, dried, smoked, and pickled meats. Not that I'm a big fan of sandwich meats anyways, but I like smoked salmon quite a bit.
-packaged processed, and refined foods. Nothing canned bottled, packaged, boxed, with any chemicals, preservatives or food coloring.

What a joke. And here are all of the things that I have recently bought that I can no longer eat:

Anyone care to join me on this venture? I thought not.
