Food allergy test…

So, I went to the naturopath again today. As you know, on my last visit she had me do a blood test to determine possible food intolerances. They screen you against 93 different foods and I was afraid they’d tell me I had to give up something I actually love like coffee, tea or eggs. But the results were better than I thought:

I have to eliminate white rice, sheep’s milk, and cola (i.e. coke). White rice might be difficult but she said I can have brown rice, which makes it a lot easier. As for the others, I don’t drink sheep’s milk or cola drinks at all.

I should also reduce (i.e. not have it more than twice a week): soya beans, rye, wheat, grapefruit, pineapple, and yeast (baker/brewers). Hmm, I guess it means I need to reduce consumption of bread. Reducing soy is the harder part since I have been trying to increase my consumption of it recently and I was actually getting used to it. Oh well, I guess it was too much of a good thing.

But like I said before, at least it wasn’t essential foods (for me) like onions, garlic, coffee, nuts or chili peppers!
