Well, as anyone who has tried a really restrictive diet (for weight loss or medical reasons) knows how crazy hard they can be... and I made it a week before completely crashing the wagon down a hill!
Yesterday was bad... tortilla chips, bread, ice cream, waffles... yeah, it was bad.
Fast forward to today. Today I decided that I didn't have any allergic reactions (at least not immediately), so I am going to assume that bread, corn, milk, and sugar are not allergens to me.
I am going to minimize the "new" foods I continue to eat. Milk I've put on the Ok list. Corn and wheat are on the ok, but don't go crazy with list. Sugar is on the "try to avoid" list... just because I know me. That leaves soy, nuts, and a few types of meat that I haven't reintroduced. My plan is to maintain the limited food group "diet" for another couple of weeks - but keep track of what I do eat and any reactions (no matter how small they seem). I'll add in nuts and try some soy (which I typically don't add intentionally just on principle)... in the next couple of weeks and see where I am by the time the Allergist comes to town. If nothing else, I can tell him that I eliminated these things for a week, then reintroduced with no issues.
On to life... it has been BEAUTIFUL here! We usually only get a few really good summer days in this rainforest I live in, but we have had almost a week straight of high 60's on up to low 80's! This is amazing for us. The forecast says it's supposed to continue too! So, we've been working outside and playing outside and even eating outside... and the house is a disaster (lol). One day it will rain and I'll clean the house... until then, I'll be enjoying my fruit on the deck!
