Show Me Yours, I'll Show You Mine

My doctor had her own kids tested. One was allergic to six things. The other, to 27! I was so hoping that my list would be on the short side. Even if it were six major things, I could be okay with that.

But no... I am allergic to gluten and 36 more things. So if you have a short list, you can compare yourself to me and feel grateful. If you have a long list, like mine, you can feel less alone in your plight. And know that I am determined to eat well despite this. Stay tuned for my fake pizza blog!

Here is my list:

Alfalfa
Banana
Barley
Bean, Kidney
Bean, Navy
Bean, Pinto
Beef
Blueberry
Cheese
Coffee
Cranberry
Cumin
Egg
Gluten
Milk, Cow’s
Milk, Goat’s
Mushroom
Oyster
Paprika
Peanut
Pepper, B/W
Pepper, Cayenne
Peppermint
Perch
Pineapple
Radish
Sage­
Scallops
Seed, Caraway
Thyme
Tomato
Vanilla
Vinegar (all but white distilled)
Walnut, Black
Walnut, English
Wheat
Yeast, Baker’s
Yeast, Brewer’s

So... what are your food allergies? Or your kids'?
