Meal planning and preparation are KEY!! I defintely experience more peace of mind when I plan they day's meals the night before (and portion them out to bring with me to work). It also helps me to enter my food plan - what I plan on eating tomorrow - into this "journal" the night before. It takes out the stress and guesswork.
Still suffering from a headache and gut irritation (and a craving for a square of dark chocolate after meals), but I know from experience that this too shall pass!
