A Food Bump in the Road

So in our attempt to eat real food more consistently, I started feeling worse not better and at the same time, I decided to try another attempt at getting my seasonal allergies under control.  Well, imagine my surprise when the allergy test revealed all sorts of food sensitivities my body had developed.  And the kicker was the real food, the whole foods that I was adding to our family diet were the precise ones that my body was rejecting.

My symptoms had been rather vague up to now, raw carrots and a few other raw vegetables seemed to cause my throat to tickle or itch when I ate them, but I really just thought that was impossible.  So I started undergoing a rather new treatment to desensitize myself to these triggers in food and environment.  So far I have experienced some relief, but I am afraid to say my food entries (and our whole/real food plan) will be rather limited until I figure this out a little more.  Currently my diet is limited to eggs, chicken, beef and pork, wheat, and a very limited selection of colorless fruits and vegetables.

If anyone else has experience with food sensitivities (gluten is not a problem for me), or with AAT sensitivity treatments let me know!

Until then,  enjoy the food for me!
