Red Cabbage vs White Cabbage

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

With my crazy allergies, I can eat cabbage one day. Well, I was out of it, so when I was at the health food store, I picked up red cabbage since e they were out of the white kind. Unfortunately, by the end of the day, my eyes were swelling shut! I wouldn't have thought there was a difference! My eyes are now back to normal, but now I am afraid of white cabbage too. Which is really frustrating since there are so few foods that I can eat!

Yesterday was a little weird too. I had to travel for work for the day. The foods I could eat yesterday were; sweet potatoes, green beans, almonds, plums and peaches, corn and tuna. So, for breakfast I had a sweet potato. Lunch was a can of tuna and a plum. I snacked on almonds, and had another sweet potato for dinner. I topped off the day with my treat - popcorn! I am not super crazy about corn as a veggie, but I love popcorn! I just don't know how I will really ever go out to eat at a restaurant. I walk in and ask them if they can make me a sweet potato and some beans? Talk about off the menu! ARRRGGGHHH!!!! emoticon

    YIKES! I wouldn't have expected there to be a difference between red or white cabbage! Yes, I would be very hesitant to eat white cabbage after your experience, too.

    Stupid question, but have you been to an allergy specialist to be tested? They might be able to advise you what other things would be safe to eat. Just an idea and I have a hunch I'm preaching to the choir.

    Good luck and sorry this happened to you!
