Strange Happenings

Monday, June 10, 2013

The strangest thing happened to me this past week. I haven't eaten wheat since November 2012 I stopped eating it and noticed a big difference in my digestive health and my extremely dry skin.

Anyway, I was feeling like I'd like to have some "real" pizza for a change. So I made some homemade pizza and while it was really good here's the weird part, all the skin in my mouth started peeling off! Layers and layers of skin! It wasn't the, I ate something hot and the skin on the roof of my mouth peeled off, kinda peeling. It peeled from the insides of my cheeks.

The next day I woke up with large canker like welts on the insides of my cheeks which made it quite painful to chew foods. It is slowly healing. 5 days later the skin is almost all healed over and there is only a little pain on one side of my mouth where the welts haven't completely healed yet. I guess I will have to stick to rice flour pizza crust when I'm feeling like pizza. My skin is quite flaky from just the one exposure. I wonder if I even more sensitive to wheat because I don't eat it anymore?

    Just popped into onto your SP page from the Xanthan Gum posting .....and I have to say that your body's response to that pizza is about the WEIRDEST response I've ever heard! How horrible!!!! I feel really bad for you! I love pizza and I'm gluten, dairy and soy sensitive so.....when I have a craving.....it's a bad thing. I just throw caution to the wind and I usually just deal with the bloating and swelling for a few days.......but if I reacted THIS way- I'm not sure I'd ever eat it again!!!!
    Yikes! Good thing you're open to experimenting!

    BACON CRUST!!!! OMG. I am SO gonna have to look that one up!

    Amazing what wheat can do to you. I'm not even super sensitive, but anything more than a tiny portion (more than a tablespoon or two) gives me stomach and intestinal distress.

    I've heard this pizza recipe is pretty good. It uses crisped cheese as the shell:

    Thanks, I have made a cauliflower crust before and while it is a very good alternative it takes forever to make, the kids don't like it and it gives me gas. I'm going to try the cauliflower crust idea but with left over mashed potatoes instead of cauliflower and see how that goes though.

    I have also made pizza with a bacon crust before and while it was possibly the best pizza I've ever eaten it would be far too expensive to make on a regular basis for a family of 4.
