Allergy Surprise

Well, I am completely taken back. I thought that after 92 days of clean eating I wouldn't have any reactions to food. Well, surprise, surprise! Tonight I had a baked potato and I had sour cream with it. I started to get really tired, and then the sneezes came. The kind that scrape your lungs on the way out. It sort of puts me out of commission for a good 15 minutes, but after, I'm just worn out. I really didn't expect this. So, that tells me that the dairy allergy I was born with is not something that will go away from a hiatus. And that sucks. It's weird. I can eat cheese. But because I don't eat it often, I didn't think I got a reaction. Who knows. I'm going to have to watch this more carefully. This is a wake up call for me. I literally thought I was allergy free. Hmmm...interesting.

Wow, that sucks. I LOVE sour cream. Well my friend swears that plain yogurt tastes just like it so maybe you could use it as a substitute for your bake potato fix? Good luck with the allergies though.
