Unfortunately, some of them are major contributors to my usual diet.
And since there were a couple of dairy products in my results, the doctor suggested that I avoid dairy altogether...yeah, fun.
I had a feeling this would be on there, probably because I love bread to much.
So, the roasted veggies recipe I just posted, yep, can't eat it anymore. Man, and they were my favorite. Thankfully, I am still able to eat sweet potatoes, I just need to avoid russet and red skin.
Yeast includes both baker's and brewer's yeast. I don't drink beer, so brewer's isn't a problem but I do love my Sunday morning bran muffin, which will now need to be forfeited. This Sunday is going to be a sad, sad day.
So, what does this list of sensitivities mean for me? Well, the doctor said that I should completely eliminate them from my diet for 3 months, and then I will be able to slowly reintroduce them one at a time to see how my body reacts. Since none of them are considered severe, I can try reintroducing them to see how I handle it. It may be a slight enough sensitivity that I can eat it without having any sort of reaction. But I guess I will just have to wait and see.
I will be spending a lot of time this week looking for recipes and meals that avoid these things, which won't be easy. I mean, yeast is in pretty much everything. I will also be counting on a friend of mine who is an awesome cook and allergic to soy, dairy and gluten.
I have to keep telling myself that it's only for 12 weeks and then I will know for sure what makes me feel sick. It's worth it...right?
