Almost the weekend...

Fresh strawberries are now on my "no" list. :(
Tingling rapidly became much worse. Burning throat. Nausea within 20 minutes. Ugh. I got really sick within about an hour. Took benedryl and was still burning and hurting when I woke up.
I know that strawberries are a very common fruit to be allergic to, but really... I have strawberry plants already setting and ripening fruit, and I won't be able to eat any. Heck my dog probably will eat most of them, anyway. She loves picking them when they are ripe. She is so delicate about it. I hope I can film her doing it sometime this Summer.
I had no idea that they caused this. not that I eat them often...so I know there are other things that I normally eat that cause this, too. I still have the persistant burning, but it is better. It could be chronic... but I can live with that.
I haven't had nausea for four days. Which is a first for at least two and a half years. So... I was better. I'm going to heal up a bit more before adding any new foods, as impatient as I feel.
Adding one or two things a day, it's going to take time. And food is boring without cheeeeeeese.... I did hear of a fake cheese recipe with miso paste and tofu. I may try it. Though I still don't know if I actually have a dairy allergy. I may be able to eat goat milk yogurt, I hope. And I heard that yogurt cheese made in the home is free of amines if it's not the casein I'm having problems with. We'll see. I could have had a false positive and it was something else. I hope so...
On the other hand, I'm down a pound without dieting or exercising much!
Watermelon and broccoli are ok, thankfully. :D Making a list, and tracking everything. Twice.
Ronnie bought me a lovely birthday card. The poem was so sweet it had me in tears. I love that man!
Hopefully tomorrow I'm going to feel well enough to shop a bit. I want to try to find some goat milk. I used to drink that all the time.
