So here I am rapidly approaching Xmas with that fear and dread of what I’m going to encounter on Xmas day. I went to see the GP and have now got my special pills that I can take if I accidentally ingest something I can’t tolerate anymore.I’ll also be taking my very own corn crackers in case I need something to eat and there’s no carbs I can eat…..

I’ve a long list of what I can’t eat anymore and sometimes I think oh my gosh what can I eat? This is what I’ve found through trial and error that I can no longer eat:

Inulin – yep things like bananas are off my table now

Yeast – I have found I can tolerate if I’ve been really really good a small slice of sourdough maybe once a month…….

Coconut Oil – oh my stomach is rolling at that one…..

Soy – where once I was the soy chai latte girl, I’ve now had to go to rice milk…..

Gluten and Wheat – again I can tolerate a small amount if I’ve been good……

Dairy and Lactose – who really wants to eat or drink cow flavoured stuff anyway?

But you know, it’s turning it around and going what can I eat now? And that’s how I’m going to try and approach Xmas – where once I would have eaten myself silly on Mince Pies, Fruit Cake and plum pudding, I’m taking the Pavlova with me….with fruit on the side and no cream thank you……

This year is for me – turning it around and making the negative into the positive…..I hope 2017 brings to you all that you dream of….
