and dive right in.
We begin GRAIN free. Our naturopath wants him to only eat meat, fruit and veggies. Ha!
Cuyler does not eat meat. Or fruits. Or veggies.
Essentially any of the carb foods he eats (and some he loves) are no longer part of his diet. These include gfcf pasta, bread, waffles, pizza, tostitos. Also included in our off-limits are potatoes. Potato chips. French fries. This one is gonna kill me.
School lunches are gonna be tough…
If our goal is for him to one day be able to live a full, independent life then he needs to be able to deal with life and all of its dynamics.
For instance, each Thursday we go to McDonalds and get french fries before gymnastics class. Last Thursday, Cuy had to poop at the time we would have left the house. By the time he was done it was too late to go before gymnastics so I told him we would go after class.
But I think it must be so much harder for him, having to live in this world where sights and smells and sounds affect him so profoundly.
So now we dig a little deeper and try and give his body some relief by removing the things that we think might be the cause.
He will know that it’s OKAY if we get the french fries after class.
That is what this is going to take.
