Didn't I just say that avoiding corn wasn't a problem for me? Well, yesterday I waited too long to eat lunch/dinner. So I went to a new mexican restaurant, the menu was good, I ordered steak with onions and avocados, it came rice and pinto beans which I shared with my A baby (he loves beans!). I didn't know it was also going to include chips and salsa. On the way home (I got it to go) I was so hungry and the chips were right there, so I thought, "I'll just have one, with lots of salsa" I ended up only having two, but it was two too many. I've never noticed an immediate reaction to corn, I thought it just made me gain weight over time, but this time I noticed that it made my fuzzy-headed and a little confused, and my eyelid twitched a few times. Reminded me of how a felt a few years ago when I was feeling really dumpy in college and had the most annoying and constant twitching eyelid. (Which really acted up during Organic Chemistry exams. I think that may explain my reaction to corn-derived citric acid and a few other food additives.
Wow! I don't need further evidence to know that this Blood Type Diet science is true, but this was further evidence.
I'm also starting to suspect that dairy is what causes my eczema to flare up. Add that to the congestion problems it gives me, and that piece of cheese doesn't look so appetizing anymore.
I found some rice cheese at the health food store, unfortunately it had nonnie avoids in it...bummer. I've got some rice pizza crusts in the freezer and don't know what to do with them. Who needs cheese, some nice beef or turkey sausage, red sauce, and roasted green peppers should be tasty even without it.
