Cleo -1.2lbs, Tony nil – It appears that two proteins in one day works just great for me. For Tony, it’s considered “non-reactive’ since he didn’t gain more than 0.5 lbs, so it’s ok for him too.
Allergy update: I can’t say that I’ve noticed much of a difference with my allergies. My hands still look like drought-ridden farmland. I still have my chronic runny nose. The only thing that’s better is my ears have healed. Oh, and I talked to my mom on the phone yesterday and she said I sounded much better. That’s good. I’ve been taking the MSM supplement for 17 days, and I don’t think it’s done anything either. But Lyn-Genet says to take it for 30 days, so I’ll keep on it and hope for the best.
Since today is a recovery day, but we don’t have anything to recover from, I’ve decided to slip in a new test. We only have two animals proteins – chicken and beef, and I want to add another one. I decide on pork, but really bacon! Lyn-Genet is not a fan. She says most people are reactive to pork, plus cured meats have sodium and preservatives that mess with testing your tolerance of pork. But Tony loves bacon. And Lyn-Genet also encourages you to test foods you love. So I carefully select a sulfite-free bacon. It’s only ingredients are pork, salt, sugar, spice and smoke. Good, right?
Oh no, test fail. I completely ran out of time and couldn’t cook any dinner. Tony wasn’t feeling well. Actually he was so sick he couldn’t even cook bacon. Poor guy. I threw together greens with beet salad and an open face goat cheese sandwich. No bacon for us. I guess I’ll try again tomorrow.
