Finding out you have and then coping with multiple food intolerances can be a struggle especially if those food intolerance’s fall over multiple food groups. Living with food intolerance’s can be a real challenge but there is lots you can do to make life a little easier and put the fun back into food again.
Am I just the only one that finds myself pacing up and down the kitchen sometimes wondering what I can eat? For me that’s a bad day of living with food intolerance’s and these moments of madness are fairly rare these days and namely thats because I try to always:
- plan what I am going to eat
- have enough of the right foods in so I don’t get hungry and feel nourished
- make sure I have some treats in place so that I don’t get tempted.
Believe me I am not angel and although I stick to my food intolerance eating regime pretty rigorously there are times when I get tempted, normally on those lovely pre-menstral days which I am sure affect lots of women out there. Infact this week having had a cold and feeling a little low I had a couple of slip ups – drank a few glasses of fruit squash (sugar) and also some 85% chocolate (again sugar). Felt rubbish afterwards but both tasted good at the time so will put that one down to a small slip up.
