Foods I can’t tolerate… Not by choice

 Over the past week I have had my face buried in my phone googling anything and everything to do with eating foods that won’t trigger my allergies.

Over Christmas I was experiencing some scary health reactions to foods I knew were not working for my body. My stomach still doesn’t feel right. The pain was to the point that I couldn’t ignore the reactions a minute longer. 

I have reactions with nuts, acidic foods, fried foods, soy, eggs, dairy, spicy foods, coffee  just to name a few. 

When you love dessert as much as I do… This does feel like the end of the world.

It’s been interesting and I’m learning ALOT. Sipping herbal tea and indulging in Chia seeds.

I have my birthday in two days and I want to eat cake on my birthday. I’ve researched how to substitute eggs in a cake recipe and it appears that you can use 1/4 cup of apple sauce or 1/2 mashed banana. 

The vegan diet seems to be the closest one regarding foods I need to avoid while waiting for some tests to come back.

The doctor has me on the elimination diet.. I need to eliminate all the foods that cause me pain and keep a food journal. Then slowly reintroduce the foods one at a time to see if they are still causing pain. It’s going to be a long process. I’ve never spent so much time thinking about my main meals! 

Do you have food allergies or intolerances? Know someone who has food intolerances?

I’d love some recipes for a fanastic cake without nuts, gluten, dairy, eggs, soy 

Until next time… Make it a great day x

One Response to Foods I can’t tolerate… Not by choice

  1. The food I can not tolerate are onions, iceberg lettuce, black pepper, & cinnamon in large amounts. I’ll either not eat them or eat them in tiny amounts at a time.
