A New No-List

I've been a little lazy when it comes to updating this list. Though, to be honest, it hasn't changed all that much in the last month, so it's part laziness and part feeling little need to update something that changes very little.

However, I am adding a new section of the list - the approved items list. I guess this technically doesn't make sense under the header "the No-List," but it's easier for me to keep it all in one place. You can see the approved items list at the bottom of the No-List. It certainly won't be as extensive or detailed to begin with, but will become so as I work on introducing more foods back into my diet.

And now, without further ado (because, really, you know the drill here), the updated No-List:

Switching lists:
They're not off the No-List, but they get to switch to the limited items list. Full removal from the No-List pending final approval from my stomach by the end of Sunday.

Keeping on the list:
apple peels
That was a bust. Oh well, it's not the end of the world... And I'm so used to peeling my apples now, anyway, that it's become a soothing part of fixing a meal or snack that includes an apple!
