Hello, hello, hello….and thank you for stopping in to play” the “what the hell can I eat” game!!!

Round one starts like this: I am just going to throw a list out into the world…and anyone who knows the answer, let me know.  This is how clueless I am.  This list may grow from time to time, so keep coming back to check and see if anyone has helped….if you have any questions yourself, you sulfite-free heads, let me know in the comment section and I will try to find out for you.

Are these things sulfite-free?

goat cheese

tomatoes

radishes

agave nectar

butter

eggs

La Croix (or any carbonated water)

any pop?  At ALL?

dates

all berries?

fresh beets

    Hey Heather,

    From your list above this is what I can and cannot have…

    Goat Cheese = YES and I am sooo happy about it.

    tomatoes = yup

    radishes = yes

    agave nectar = YESSSSSS…I liiiive off of this stuff, seriously.

    butter = I’m lactose intolerant, but you’re good!

    eggs = Si.

    La Croix (or any carbonated water)= Never had…I can have seltzer if that helps. If there’s any HFS in it, it’s a no.

    any pop? At ALL? = NONE – sorry.

    dates = I only stick to rasins, unless it says sulfite-free.

    all berries? = Yup! No maraschino cherries though.

    fresh beets = Yup, avoid all canned vegetables unless you scrutinize the labels.

    xanthan gum = Yes.

    potato starch = Yup.

    tapioca starch = Ya.

    Hope this helps!

    Do you know how thrilled I am about goat cheese? YES.
    Eggs. AWESOME!

    I will look and see if La Croix has that HFS whatever that is, but I hope I can because I am really sick of water.

    How can you eat raisins? Aren’t they just anorexic grapes?

    What about fresh beets? I am growing them in my garden and they are staring at me with puppy dog eyes, wanting to be eaten in a salad with their next door neighbors, the lettuce.

    You CAN have xanthan gum? OK! That’s a good thing!

    You helped out a ton!!
    I know we all have varying degrees of this goofy thing, but I am all for someone telling me I can eat the goat cheese.
    Thanks for stopping in and let’s be sulfite-free pals!

      If you eat eggs – re sulphites – I always have to break mine open and let them breathe on the counter for a while. Date & raisins are filled with natural sulphites. Chedar cheese is fine providing its not wrapped in cellophane wrap. Butter is good only made with cream/milk – be carefull with bottled water – its usually has to do with the containers they are in. Dissani is a no no. Health Canada has a great web site for food and other things containing sulphites.

    Just found this and thought it would help:
    http://www.newmansown.com/foodQA.aspx not sure how much I trust it but I am thrilled that they tried!
    Also – watch out for bottled water of any sort – apparently they sometimes add stuff to make it taste better and one of those things is sulfites. I can’t drink dasanis without breaking out in hives… (took me a while to figure that one out – water was the last thing that I thought to check).

    Tillamook cheese seems to be ok, Arrowhead, or eath 2/0 water also seem to be ok. I have also found that Lipton tea bags are ok and Some of the coffee you get at costco seems to be fine also.
    I am glad I found this blog, it has been helpful. I am going to make the mayonaise recipe here in a bit. Anyone have any good ideas for bread, I have not found any that I can tolerate?

      Terri, welcome!!
      I have a lot more info coming up this week so make sure to subscribe….
      Thanks for the heads up on the cheese. I am done with the elimination diet in two weeks so cheese will be one of the first that I try. I have been eating goat cheese a ton.
      I swear that they make unbleached tea bags but when I was at Whole Paycheck last week and I asked, the guy looked at me like I was insane.

    Beets and beet sugar are bad. Be careful of sugars (white … and I think brown too) as they can be derived from beet sugar.

    I thought that egg whites are innately sulfurous, so I’d be surprised you can have as many as you want; but I think some sulfite sensitive people can have, say, one egg every day or every other day (or more, depending on sensitivity and what else is eaten)…

    I found this site looking up agave nectar. Honey is my go-to when available, but being able to have agave would be very convenient (it’s a high-fructose sweetener but my biggest concern is not getting a three-day sulfite headache!).
