I have weirdo food allergies. I think I 'got' them because I always used to make fun of other people with food allergies. I thought people who had to have special menus were high maintenance. Cynicism is nasty and empathy is a real treat, right?
So, I found out around February that I am allergic (not intolerant, but allergic) to whey, wheat, mozzarella, beef, pork, lamb AND I have reactive hypoglycemia. The hypoglycemia is pretty common, but who is allergic to beef and pork???
Basically I eat fruit, veggies, chicken, seafood, and lentils. Yech. Good foods, but it gets old. This means no convenient packaged snacks because EVERYTHING that's processed has something in it that I can't eat.
I have literally had dreams about eating hamburgers (real ones) and milk chocolate.
I thought to myself, "Don't despair, self. You can have low-sugar frozen yogurt because it's made from curds, not whey. Low sugar, no whey, and no gluten. Great right?" Nope. They add whey to frozen yogurt! I was heart sick about it! I just want to be able to eat a stupid dessert of some sort!
Wonderful Daniel felt sorry for me. So, he looked online and found me some of this wonderful, glorious ice cream wannabe from Ozark Natural Foods:
I love you Daniel!
