I pinned down my reaction from a month or so ago when I got a rash after eating lamb. It was definitely the dried rosemary. I threw out the old rosemary, and bought some new dried rosemary to use. Then I used it on some of my new lamb, and the reaction wasn't as bad, but it definitely made me itchy, going on 24 hours now. Now I just need to test it with fresh rosemary, in a few days. I wonder if dried rosemary gets a fungus, like ground pepper. If I react to fresh, then I'll know it's just me and rosemary. Too bad, I like the flavor.
Ah, the joys of being a nonsecretor. While I go slice up an avocado, you secretors can still count yourselves lucky for being less reactive to foods.
But the joy* of being any type, is the knowledge and power that Dr. D'Adamo's work has given us all. Non-secretors are no longer bound to a life of being the one who always gets sick, and I wouldn't trade that for a pizza, ever.
