I couldn't believe it when I saw it, but St. Dalfour's makes a kumquat marmelade. It's completely compliant for nonnie Os. I bought some up, but now realize that I no longer know what to put it on! There's not a rice cake in my house, maybe I'll go buy some.
I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but Sambazon makes an acerola juice drink that doesn't have any citric acid/ascorbic acid or other additives. It does have sugar in it (cane juice), but I thought it was notable to find something like it without flavorings or additives added, it's flavored with a little ginger juice...nothing extra. Hooray! Despite the sugar, I have tried it, and it tastes a bit like Sunny Delight...which I never liked because it's junk, but I do like this, and it's not junk, it's pure and simple.
My use of calcium citrate may be biting me now, as my scalp is consistently goose-egged these days. It may be a detox reaction. I had a massage on my birthday, and she said afterward to drink lots of water because I may detox and get sore spots. I hadn't been drinking enough already, and later in the day it really flared up even though I didn't eat anything that normally bugs me. Then I noticed some talk of calcium citrate on a corn allergy group, and that it is made with citric acid, and thought "D'oh!" I now take only clearcal and phytocal. I imagine it may take a good deal of detoxing to get the remainder of the citric acid out of my system...if that is how it is. All the corn derivatives that I react to are fermented corn derivatives, so, where it stands now, I need to really avoid those... corn alcohols in natural flavorings, citric acid, corn-derived ascorbic acid, xanthan gum, to name a few.
I'll see my endocrinologist tomorrow, I imagine he'll give me more vitamin Ds to take, since once I ran out I started getting occasional mild symptoms again. He'll look over my thyroid and such as well, and see if anything else needs tuned up.
Anyway, that's all I have for now. Hope you all had a good Valentine's day!
