As we scroll down the list of food sensitivities we find that chicken, sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes, yogurt, and olive (my beloved olive oil is out) are sporting a yellow shade of, fuck-this-can't-be-happening. All of these foods, especially chicken, sunflower butter, and olive oil, have been staples in my diet. Sources of protein have been extremely valuable to me over the past several months, because I feel strongly that protein is what gets me through the day. With chicken and turkey out, my options for protein include beef, pinto beans, lentils, egg, garbanzo beans, almonds, and peanuts. While that sounds like a handful of options, consider that beef and egg are the only two options that sound remotely filling in my personal opinion. Oh, and yes- I can have lentils, garbanzo beans, and peanuts now. Back in March, lentils and garbanzo beans were highly reactive and peanuts were moderately reactive. It's crazy how much some of my sensitivities have changed.
As you may have noticed, some of my red and yellow foods from march have disappeared from my reactive list in my second round of test results. Among one of those red items that has now changed to green- the mother of all items that I will surely try to avoid for the rest of my life: cane sugar. NOW- when I saw that cane sugar was one of my lower sensitivities when it was my highest just 8 months ago, I will admit that the naughty in me did a little dance. Mind you, this was all in the heat of my rice cracker indulgence, so my naughty dial was turned up to, ask-me-if-I-give-a-fuck and everything about my thought process was wildly out of line. After taking a step back and taking some time to process my results, I thought about it and I don't know why I would ever want to find myself on that addictive, truly no good path that sugar had me on for most of my life. I went through hell withdrawing from sugar when I eliminated it the first time. I figure that I've come this far and there's no sense in going back to something that isn't good for any of us in the first place. Hash tag WILLPOWER.
