Crumbled Cardboard Feet

Yesterday's banana crumble cake didn't work in terms of texture because the topping tasted like eating crumbled cardboard feet.

Gross.

Today's chicken turned my lips and face puffy and swollen (but no breathing problems). This recent reaction to chicken has happened enough times now that I'll give it a rest for awhile.

Now onto better news. Medjool dates, mushrooms, peanut butter, avocados and cashews have been back on the menu for months with NO ISSUES. Thank goodness, because to me, those are some of the yummiest things, ever.

Now ... for the BESTEST news of my day .....

  7. That is great news about the jogging! I like all the good food you listed but dates and peanut butter (only the natural type; the rest totally sucks!) are the best. The absolute best.

  8. i love all food you mentioned and one of my favorite cakes in the whole world is my Aunt Lola's Prune Cake..so so good..and tho she has passed on now, she did leave her prune cake recipe behind. She always had one in her freezer for company and she always served it with wedges of wonderful cheese...ummm now I just may have to go buy prunes and make one.
    Great jogging news...and thanks for coming by with such a sweet comment. xoxo

    1. Thanks, Christine but on the bright side, my body wouldn't let me eat those other things, and now I can so I am pretty darn thrilled. I could even eat dairy if I wanted, but NO THANKS!

      Have a great week and boogie boogie.

    1. Sorry to hear you are allergic to the chicken as well. For awhile, I did great on the locally grown organic chickens but now, even those are a no-go.

      Have you been able to add anything back that you've missed?

  16. Well, your food may have tasted like cardboard feet, but your REAL feet are obviously made out of something much stronger. Way to go!

  25. 'eating crumbled cardboard feet' ... certainly not to be recommended!

    Sorry to hear about the reaction to chicken BUT I love the sound of your other foods:
    "Medjool dates, mushrooms, peanut butter, avocados and cashews have been back on the menu for months with NO ISSUES."

    Well done on the jogging too.
    Hope your week is going well.

    All the best Jan
