I have lived my life knowing that I am allergic to almost all fresh fruits, vegetables, and nuts.  In doing so, I have adjusted my eating and although I would love watermelon or a cucumber, I enjoy what I eat.  Now I find out that I have EOE.  That is short for Eosinophilic Esophagitis, try and say that fast three times.

EOE is when your esophagus is actually allergic to certain foods.  Seriously?!  Now my GI track is saying FU and now you can’t eat more things.  Now on top of not being able to eat any fresh fruits, vegetables, or nuts, now I can’t eat dairy, pork, beef, cheese, eggs, garlic…etc.  The list goes on and on.  Oh yeah, and my favorite chocolate too!

So as you can imagine, I can’t eat any of my current recipes.  I can still make them for my family and just stare at them while they eat.  Needless to say, I am going to be adding recipes that I find are yummy that fall into the catagory of things I can eat.  I know you are on the edge of your seat thinking what on earth is there left to eat right?

I love sweets and will find something!
