What to Eat for Dinner
Dinner on an elimination diet is very similar to lunch with the addition of a grain and healthy oil -- like avocado oil, olive oil, or grapeseed oil. Prepare your dinner with four ounces of lean protein, one to two cups of non-starchy vegetables, a half cup of whole grains, and two tablespoons of a healthy oil.
