This afternoon I decided to think outside the box and make something different for lunch. I did a little experimenting with ingredients that I have had in the past just not all together.
Into the food processor went 2 tbsp raw cashews, 1 tbsp hemp seeds, 3 tbsp nutritional yeast and a dash of paprika. I served my saucy creation over a bowl of shredded zucchini. It tasted amazing - kind of like a cheese sauce. Let me say this again – I have had all these things before.
So you can imagine my surprise when all of a sudden, I was covered from head to toe in hives. Seriously, my entire body was nothing but one big cluster of red blotches and I was super itchy. The top of my head felt like it was on fire and my ears were burning.
This is why I eat the same things every day – my “safe diet”. I can’t win with food. If it is not reeking havoc to my stomach or making my face break out into nasty cysts, then I am turning into a big red itchy mess. I have no idea which one of the components was the culprit – maybe the raw cashews? But I have had raw cashews before. It is a mystery to me.
Now you know why I have such a boring diet and why I am so leery to try new things. My body is just not up to the variety I guess.
I just got home from a Girl Scout meeting and I am very ready to sit down and read more New Moon. My sis and my mom are reading it as well. It is fun to chat about the book with them. I can’t let them get to far ahead of me.
I hope you had a great day.
