Creamy avocado, tangy citrus juice, antioxidant filled quinoa, protein-packed black beans, and a spicy serrano kick! Ready in less than a half hour, what's not to love?
So the last few weeks I've been...well, let's say a little less "smiles and rainbows" than usual. With a slew of new food allergies, financial struggles, and just a terrible case of life catching up to me, it's been rough sailing. The storm's still a'brewin', but it's not raining on my parade anymore (although not for circumstances improving.) You may remember almost three weeks ago when I mentioned blood work and an Endoscopy. All results came back "normal," which is amazing news, and frustrating at the same time. The problems and symptoms persist, so on another medical wild goose chase we go.
Meanwhile, I'm trying not to lose hope despite having allergies/intolerances to 39 foods plus gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, and peanuts. In case you're going through something similar, there's one piece of advice I can give you: Continue to treat your body like a temple. It's better to be frustrated at how healthy you're trying to be and not reaping the expected (and rightfully deserved) benefits, than to give up entirely and make things worse by throwing gas on a fire. Over stressing, eating junk, and being a couch potato won't make anything better. (More on this soon: "How to Respond to the Common Allergy/Intolerance questions.)
"So what do you have left to eat?!"
