Well, I have done REALLY well not having night shades. I didn't have salsa at the restaurant the other day which was very hard.
I think I am such a FOODIE. I like flavor and spice and HOT..... So I am having to really think about what sorts of spices to use that are safe.
The truth is that so far.... my pain has really diminished in the last 7 days. I will KNOW if it is coincidence, IF, when the rain comes, my pain doesn't increase!
I am a true weather vane.
If it is true that I am actually allergic to night shades, I will not weep the loss of egg plant. But the loss of peppers and tomatoes and potatoes will be a different story. :( You know, it is one thing to give up coke. It is quite another to not have staples..... like tomatoes, which are in everything!
So, I thank the Lord that we have FOOD! I am thankful that I am finding answers to health issues that I have been plagued with. And, I am thankful that I have the internet to find recipes for foods I CAN have, and to find alternative sources to SPICE! :)

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
