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.
