Guess that would taste kinda bad

Why can't you eat all of the above? Allergy, diet, health?

Kind of all of the above! TB is wheat, gluten, soy, lactose intolerant, and I have been diagnosed with a candida allergy which means I have to stay away from yeast; sugar (all types, even fruit in any form); starches meaning potatoes, white rice; sugary vegetables such as corn, carrots and peas, and on and on. I am also off eggs for a year because I have an allergy to them along with too many other things to mention.

I did try to make some safe waffles for TB last year when he couldn't have eggs as well as the wheat, etc. but they were not that great. I would rather wait until both of us can eat the real thing!

Holy Spamoli
And here I've been hoping I never become allergic to shellfish like my father...
If I was allergic to all those items I'd starve

It won't be forever. I just have to clear my system out of all the bad stuff and then bring things in slowly. I am actually having a bit of fun with it! Today I made burgers and instead of using egg as a binder, I used some salsa I wanted to use up - made them juicy and lots of flavour!

I am also finding a lot of different salad blends that I like using great greens like kale, Brussel Sprouts (raw and shaved), etc. I love veggies so make soup, salads, raw veggies. And I can have all the poultry I want which is perfect for me.

Not when you consider that when I stay on the diet my chronic pain levels are cut to below half normal, my depression and mood swings are non-existent, I am losing weight and generally am feeling better!

I didn't feel like cooking, so we ordered from Mr. Falafel. We had one beef and lamb shawarma platter and one with chicken. Had one "regular salad" with restaurant made dressing (not homemade ) and one taboule salad. It also came with roast potatoes, pickled peppers, and pickled turnip (love a bit of pickle turnip).

We had grilled butterflied pork chops, sauteed onions and apples, baked sweet potatoes, steamed Italian green beans, iced tea, with king cake for dessert.
