Today I measured my UA four times, as part of a project to see how my uric acid level varies during the day. I will do it for a few more days and add up the results.
Breakfast: Salcornia and tomato salad with cheese cubes and a vinaigrette dressing. Green smoothies.
Lunch: Rice with egg, Tom Yam Kung soup (unfortunately with lots of seafood in it), salad from breakfast, pickled vegetables.
Snack: Guacamole and nachos
Dinner: Rice and butternut squash in rum and maple syrup sauce. Very easy to make - just take about 3 large spoons of maple syrup, 3 large spoons of butter, a bot one teaspoonful of masala curry powder, or the same amount of cinnamon or nutmeg. Then add half a cup of dark rum and half a cup of water. Cut the butternut squash in half-inch sized cubes, after cutting in half and removing the seeds (wash it first, oreferrably rubbing it with salt to remove any chemicals and wax residue in the peel). Then boil in a large saucepan under a lid for 15 mins, and the squash is soft and the sauce has reduced, serve. If not, reduce without lid until sauce is thick and the squash is soft. Serve.
Todays UA reading: 8.4 mg/dL. Down a little from yesterday. I will try to eat purine-poor foods today too, it seems to help. And I forgot to take the cherry capsules this morning! Well, so much for the effect of cherries on uric acid levels.
