It's a good thing you aren't lecturing then SLIM...I'm sorry, but I never said I could not, but rather it is really difficult nto increase the volume of fresh fruits and vegetables. I eat organic fresh produce and cook more vegetables than I eat fresh for a reason. I find folks with a poor understanding of autoimmune disorders are a little like skinny folks who believe being thin is as simple as not making excuses.....It isn't true.
I'm not horribly over weight and certainly not to the extent of being miserable everyday just to get thinner. I do need to adjust things in an effort to find a good balance that suits both my activity level and healthy lifestyle needs. Hives and swelling are measurable. They are not subjective. It isn't just one type of fruit or vegetable either. I am allergic to virtually everything that grows to some extent according to allergy scratch tests. Some reactions are itchy for 10-20 minutes. Some are itchy, swelling and hives...just depends on what I am willing to live with day to day. Variety may never be something I can enjoy but, like I said...I'm a workin on it.
