Still learning

I am finding it interesting just how much of something I can eat before feeling ill. Just a small amount butter, and my nose runs. I woke this morning a little itchy and my nose running-- back to the Benadryl.
Of course I'm not sure if wasn't the potato that caused my issue. Potatoes are in the nightshade family, and do cause trouble for some people. .
So still trying to figure it out.
Here's a new recipe for Lemon Chicken. Yum. 
3 chicken breasts pounded out
2  cloves of garlic minced
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup capers
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt
In a large skillet heat to medium heat, add the olive oil. 
Add the chicken and salt and pepper.
In five minutes turn over, add the garlic and lemon juice. Cook another three minutes add the capers.
Finish cooking until done, a other 3 minutes.

A New Direction

As we travel through life sometimes we come to signs and sometimes we hit road blocks and have to reevaluate our decisions

Two weeks ago i hit one of those road blocks. I had such a firestorm of histamine running through me. I couldn't sleep. I could barely work.

This is a picture of my arm broken out with hives.  

Definitely time to reevaluate.

As I notices eating certain foods made my symptoms worse, chocolate, eggs, dairy, and some wheat products like bread and pasta. the worst was eating these in combination, like egg and cheese sandwiches. 

So a decision had to be made. If I want vibrant health, then it need to give them up.  Of course this from the girl who ate ham and cheese omlettes and chocolate chip cookies by the handful in my youth.  I have some great food memories. 

Big fear not, all is not lost, because I refuse to act like a victim in this. I have chosen to trat this new phase like a grand adventure. Exploring new options and menus. 

Another interesting observation is that my joints don't hurt as much and I'm starting to sleep better.  

So there it is a née direction, a new adventure in eating. I will be using this space to chronicle this adventure. Who knows maybe my insights mig help someone else. At any rate, today I roar like the tiger I am, because I am proud to be me.
