I've mentioned in other posts that I'm eating less meat but over time I've realized I have to radically change my diet. In the long run it will improve my health; in the short run I am challenged to ignore fulling one third of our stock. And therein lies my dilemma.
I am allergic to dairy, gluten, cinnamon and iodine. The iodine part has never been an issue as I prefer to keep living. So shellfish of any kind in any form is out. But God help me with the pasta, bread and cheeses.
It's to the point where my throat and nose were filling with flem after eating these items. For a long time I excused it away as "having a cold" or "not able to shake that damn bronchitis." After a month worth of nearly constant spitting, coughing and clearing my throat and driving Sweetie nearly mad, I had to relent.
A trip to the doctor confirmed my suspisions. When my allergies to wood smoke and cat dander and I'm a walking target in this house.
So tonight begins my new diet. I dread it already.
We have Sweetie's mother hear again for dinner. They're having shrimp, salmon patties, Yukon Gold potatoes and salad. I'm having pinto beans, potatoes and salad.
For dessert they're having strawberry ice cream. I'm having an orange.
Wish me perseverance.
