Coumadin Diet

Ok so originally my Dr. has said to limit my Vitamin K and to eat the same amounts everyday so that we could regulate my dose to that amount. My body however had different plans, resisted the coumadin and put me up at 12mg. My Dr has never had to prescribe this much, let alone to such a little person.

So anyways, now I am to avoid vitamin K. I'm struggling here, because there is VitK in EVERYTHING! And of course in all my favorite things. So what does this mean for me. It means, no spinach,okra, asparagus, lettuce, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, green onions, cilantro, thyme, basil or oregano. No spaghetti sauce, so no lasagna or pizza. NO kiwi, blueberries, blackberries, grapes, avocado or pumpkin.

There are a few things I can eat. For veggies I can have beets, eggplant,mushrooms, yellow bells,squash and turnips. Fruit I can have are peeled apples, bananas, citrus, pineapple and watermelon. I can have all meats and starches and dairy though. Cant have V8 juice, but can have all the vodka I want....HA!

So how the hell am I supposed to be eating healthy. I guess, meat, rice and eggplant. Of course the one thing Ive never eaten, is one of the few things I can eat now.

I'm off to find some good eggplant and squash recipes. If only I could have a bottle of Vodka along with it:) I can have an occasional glass of wine though!
