Unlike a lot of you (it would seem) I am not allergic to Nightshades, but intolerate of them. I have severe Fibromyalgia, and am also hoping that once I get them all out of my system my pain will go down some.
In addition to Nightshades, I cannot have Soy, mustard, onion, wheat, milk, eggs, watermelon, basil, oregano, mushrooms, oats, spelt, millet, polysorbate 80, yellow #5, blue #2, green pea, broccoli, cabbage, caffeine, coffee, sesame...I might be forgetting something, but that is most of it. LOL
Needless to say, finding things to eat has gotten..well...interesting. And frustrating. I am making most things from scratch and reworking recipes that were already made to accomidate most allergies. Thus my user name: Rediscover Food, because that is what I am having to do. I have to rediscover Mayo, and pasta sauce, and ketchup, and bread...ect. To discover again what these foods taste like, because they are new and unique, and unlike the mayo, pasta sauce, ketchup ect that I grew up eating.
To that end I started a blog to keep track of all the reworked recipes I discover. I hope it is OK to post it here. I look forward to getting to know you all. I feel so strange ubable to go out to eat, grilling people about what is really in the food. Hubby does not understand, and it gets loney. I miss being able to eat anything- to some extent. In reality, it was always bad for me, and caused me pain, so in that sense, I do not miss those foods at all.
