The Beginning of the End
This week, I reintroduced yogurt into my diet. Oh joy, was it delicious. According to my allergy test, I wasn't sensitive to yogurt, but since I was to some cheeses, the doctor said to avoid all dairy. And next week I am going to reintroduce some cheese, and then milk. Once those three are back in my diet, or eliminated depending on how they make me feel, I will start reintroducing foods that actually showed up on my test.
I am not sure of the order, because there are so many I'm itching to eat again. But there is someone who is much happier about this upcoming event than I am, and that's Eric. He just keeps telling me that above all he wants me to drink wine again. Throughout this whole process, he has been affected almost as much as I have, since I try to avoid making meals I can't eat.
If I end up being sensitive to some, but not all things, I'm going to have to re-train my brain as I think about recipes or look at labels. Right now, I'm used to looking for so much. But I will take on that challenge if it means my diet isn't so wacky. But I guess I'll just have to wait and see. I'm crossing my fingers.
P.S. Sorry about that super depressing post yesterday. I can't deny it's how I felt, but I don't want to be a downer. I'd rather talk about yogurt :)
