I'm having a nice pout.
I found out on Friday that I'm allergic to just about everything, and the thing I'm MOST allergic to is the supplements I am using to augment my laughably low stomach acid. Because it turns out that Betaine HCL is made from beets, and in spite of the fact that I've probably had beets twice in my entire life, beets are the king of the food allergy castle.
So the thing that allows me to process my food is the thing I most especially can't have.
Beets are closely followed on the No No list by sesame. SESAME?? You're kidding, right? Nope.
But before I get too giddy with 'this is pretty easy to avoid', on we go to.... well, to just about everything except lettuce and nuts and meat (but no sauces or dressings allowed, kiddies, we wouldn't want to have any sort of flavor to accidentally contaminate our food).
I guess I should be grateful I can have meat and nuts (although I can't digest them), but geeeeeeeez...
