I really miss pizza

Published June 9, 2021 by Malia

I’ve had food issues my whole life. Add in the fact that I’m a super picky eater, and eating is a challenge.

In the last few months I’ve been finding that more and more foods seem to make me sick. It’s not great when the list of foods that don’t make you sick is basically chicken, bone broth, yogurt, and crackers.

I’ve been tested for allergies before and everything has come back normal. I came to the assumption that it must be my anxiety causing food issues.

It has been suggested that maybe tomatoes are part of the problem. Initially, I shrugged this off, because I hate tomatoes. But then I realized that while I hate raw tomato, quite a lot of the things I eat have tomatoes in them.

So, now I’m trying to revamp my diet to avoid tomato. It does seem to be helping a bit. It’s a bit of a challenge, and I have messed up a few times. This past Sunday I decided to make Tika Masala with this kit that came with the sauce already made. It was as I was playing the food that I remembered what one of the ingredients in the sauce is.

That’s right.

Fortunately, I survived without getting too sick. But I do dream of a day when I can eat pizza again without spending the following night in agony.
