A world without olive oil? Vinegar?
Somebody pass me the smelling salts!
I am fruit-intolerant, including avocados. I am also intolerant to the combination of grains and potatoes within 4 hours.
Yes, it made me sad, but only for a little bit. Because within just a few days of making some changes I noticed one big difference – the pain was gone. And since I’m all about avoiding pain, I’m not going back.
Here’s the low down on this blog. Any recipes posted will be fruit-free according to the guidelines given to me by my Naturopath. Product info and recipes that are grain-free or potato-free will be marked as such. If a product or recipe happens to be gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, or vegan, I will certainly mark it as such, as well. However, fruit-free, grain-free, potato-free are already tough, so I will not post things specifically designed to accommodate gluten-free, sugar-free, vegetarian, or vegan. I think my head would explode if I had to figure all of that out! Besides, there are tons of other websites with info for those who need those accommodations. Fruit-free? Grain/potato combo-free? Not so much. I’m working on finding a quick, easy visual for marking what’s what. When I find it, I’ll update this page.
Something super important to keep in mind is this: I am not a doctor. I am not qualified to give medical advice. If you suspect you may have a food intolerance, please consult your medical professional.
I firmly believe that in life we have a choice: laugh or cry. I choose to laugh. When I found out I was fruit-intolerant I had different fruits stamped onto each of my nails. It’s my way of staring it down and taking charge. I want to keep this as light-hearted as I can. Because, come on! We have to have at least some fun with this, right?
