It's my birthday this month and during all this "detox" stuff the past 60 days or more--I just kept hoping I would not be reactive to any of the ingredients in NACHOS. Cuz, that's how I want to celebrate my 70th birthday. And that's what I want to eat ALL month.
Had nachos today (September 2nd) for a late lunch out on the porch of the Seadog. I should have also had a Margarita but I am under the influence of Benadryl. Lots and lots of Benadryl. My eyes are watering, the skin around my eyes is burning and to make the face a party--my nose is either stuffed up or running. Of course, it goes without saying that the eczema on my eyebrows is red and itchy.
Nuts to my primary care doctor--I am asking to be referred to an allergy specialist when I have my annual checkup on the 21st. I'll even pay out of pocket for the ALCAT. This isn't just "dust".
And, I was totally inflamed since yesterday, late afternoon (when I ate chocolate). The nachos aren't involved in this reaction. This is why the Elimination Diet people want us to eat the new food three days in a row--as often as we can. So that, by day three, you can explode into an allergic reaction-- if it's going to happen. No question.
I do have four containers of dark chocolate caramels. I will miss eating them. But I can give them to people as gifts. Sadly, I didn't eat any of the caramels during the three day test. And I certainly am not eating any of them now. My eyes would swell shut.
Finished watching Marcella on Netflix (good but strange). Have watched Cooked (very good). Have watched 2 episodes of Chef's Table (rather pretentious). Am almost caught up on Mr. Robot (very strange). Have to watch during the afternoon when G is not in the house. He can't follow any of the story lines and I get annoyed trying to explain everything while watching. In Mr Robot there are "people" who are imaginary and dead. So I am watching saying; real person, imaginary person, dream, awake etc. Also the action is sometimes current and often backstory. It's a lot of work to watch this show.
Had my second Larabar. Carrot Cake. It was very tasty. I purchased two rings of dry pineapple so I can make homemade Carrot Cake Bars. I even got dried banana chips in case I like the Banana Cream Pie one. No dried apple rings or chips so I can't make the Apple Pie bars.
