So, as I’ve mentioned before, I’ve got Oral Allergy Syndrome. Basically it’s a syndrome (duh) where one is allergic/sensitive to foods in their raw, uncooked state. The foods that one is allergic to generally have to do with pollen allergies- most commonly: Ragweed, Grass, and Birch trees. It sucks. There are so many things I can’t eat due to the fact that my face gets puffy and my mouth and throat and eyes itch like crazy!
Today, I ate a Cantaloupe for the first time in 7 years! And my face didn’t puff up and my eyes, throat, and mouth are not itching! Now, I don’t know if it’s because of the Whole 30, but I’m pretty danged pleased, because I love melon- I just haven’t been able to eat it. I’m not going to be eating things that I’m severely allergic to like hazelnuts to test the Whole 30 theory, but I may try some things that have given me mild reactions in the past and see what happens.
Whatever DOES happen, I’m just stoked to be able to eat melon this summer!
Have a beautiful day, lovelies!
