Foodie Constrictions...

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Eek.  I just got my blood test results back from my ALCAT Food Allergy tests and it turns out I have a few items that need to be removed from the old diet for the next 3 months.  Some of them are very bizarre; cherries? Crab?  Halibut?  I can live without those for 3 months but avoiding yeast, gliadin and whey is going to be challenging.  Lucky for me I have always confused my husband with my interest in "wacky" alternative grains like quinoa, amaranth and millet.  I cannot have anything with Wheat, Barley or Rye.  These grains are in almost everything if you start reading labels with an eagle eye.

So....I spent 2 hours and $200 in Whole Foods last week gathering my ammunition to combat these sensitivities.  Ha!  I will challenge them to a duel in the kitchen.  They don't know what they're dealing with.  I have read Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics, Cooking the Whole Foods way and (parts of) Nourishing Traditions.  I know how to deal with alternative foods in the kitchen.  Muu-hu-hu-haaaa.

Noooo, really.  This is my time to start experimenting with and posting gluten, yeast and dairy sensitive recipes.  I am making the committment NOW.  : )
