Nooooooooooooooooo! I got my food sensitivity testing back, and I am severely intolerant of wheat (along with clam, crab, halibut, and snapper) and mildly intolerant of gluten and casein, so I'm told I should eliminate barley, oat, and rye, and avoid milk. I could just cry!!!!!! What the heck am I going to eat?!
I'm also moderately intolerant to tea, butternut squash, button mushroom, cabbage, celery, corn, cranberry, ginger, grapefruit, hops, lime, peanut, scallop, spinach, and watermelon. And mildly intolerant to avocado, banana, basil, black pepper, broccoli, cherry, coconut, egg yolk, eggplant, green pea, parsley, pear, pecan, plum, rice, salmon, shrimp, string bean, sweet potato, tomato, tuna, vanilla, white potato, and something called candida albicans (which apparently means sugar because they say to limit cane sugar, fructose, and honey).
Good Lord, does that leave anything?! Doesn't seem like it. I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do. I have pizza at least once a week, love me some burritos, and am always wheating it up (bread, cereals, cream of wheat, etc).
On the other hand, hopefully this is a good explanation for the ulcerative colitis, and maybe the endometriosis, because I've read that endo is an autoimmune disease. So, the theory goes that if your body has an intolerance to certain foods, when you eat them, it activates your immune system.
I just don't even know where to start, though, with the menu planning. Oh, and get this total injustice. My husband was also tested because he was diagnosed with diverticulitis and chronic inflammation of the colon. NONE of the things he is severely or moderately intolerant of are things that he even likes. So freaking unfair!!
Y'all, what am I going to do? I know you can buy gluten free things, but how do you get fiber if you can't have most grains? And, I think most GF people don't have to avoid milk. Is anyone else out there limited to such a strict diet as me? Have any advice? So sad over here . . .
