The Sulfite Allergy CAN List


(Please note that these are all things that I can tolerate.  Yo may have different severities to things.  This is just a guideline and these items seem to work for me.  THIS LIST IS A WORK IN PROGRESS AND WILL CHANGE so please check back periodically.)

When I was looking online and trying to find ideas of things I can eat, there was nothing out there.  So here is a sample list of things that I can eat and a daily food meal suggestions. Hope this helps and I welcome your comments, input and/or hate mail.

BREAKFAST ITEMS

Greek plain yogurt with fresh fruit mixed in and a dab of honey

natural ovens toasted with butter and honey

Kashi 7 whole grain honey puffs

smoothies made with yogurt and fresh fruit

SNACKS

kettle One Sea Salt chips

Isola Thin Crustinetti’s (found at Whole Paycheck.  Basically mini breadsticks)

Lara Bars:  Read the ingredients VERY carefully.  If you can have nuts, these are fantastic.  I personally cannot but I have a separate nut allergy so  you may be fine with this.)

DAIRY

Greek yogurt – plain

Plain yogurt

cream and half and half

*Milk – this is one of those things that people can or cannot tolerate.  Make sure you find out of you can do this.   Many people actually drink non-fortified clean milk that you can get straight from farmers.

*Goat cheese  – seriously?  I don’t know if this makes me sick or not.  I feel like it might.  I am going to try it one more time today and see what happens.   I had some yesterday and my thumb is swollen like little Jack Horner.

*Fresh Mozz – YES!  Works for me!  And it melts…..yum…..UPDATE.  Yeah, no.  Can’t do mozz…I think it makes me really sick.  But I can have

FETA!!!  I get the athos brand and it melts so it’s good on everything…my favorite is melted a little on top of pasta

*Butter – I love the irish butter you can get at Trader Joe’s and so do the kids

MEAT

(I try to get everything organic and mostly from places like Whole Paycheck.  And I clean the heck out of it and dry it.  Let me also add that I was recently told that the little pads that are under chicken and meat are actually totally comprised up sulfites.  I haven’t been able to find actual documentation for that but I am working on it, so check back.)

Chicken

Turkey

Steak

Most fish (no crustaceans unless fresh right from the sea)

Beef

SOUPS

I made a ton of homemade soup now.  I make my own broth and store it.

I do cream based soups like cream of asparagus, broccoli, green pepper and I am about to venture into some other soups. My problem is that I REALLY miss the onion flavor but it’s something you have to get used to….and you just have to get used t making your own broth….

FRUIT AND VEGGIES

*Tomatoes (Like Parmesan cheese, tomatoes have a naturally high content of MSG so some people cannot tolerate it.)

Celery, carrots, all lettuce including kale and collard greens, green/red/yellow peppers, all berries, beans, eggplant, cucumber, zucchini, avocados, melons, bananas, *apples and *peaches(I seem to have  a sensitivity and not sure if it is from the sulfites that are sprayed once on the crops at the beginning of harvest on even organic fruits), Lemon, lime, mangoes, kiwi

OTHER

honey

olive, canola and sunflower oil

fresh pepper

sea salt

fresh herbs and organic spices (no spice or seasoning mixes)

tea with unbleached only bags

fresh squeezed orange juice

BOOZE GLORIOUS BOOZE

Sierra Nevada beer (the original blend)

Clear good tequila like Patron or1800 Silver  (mix it with fresh OJ and fresh mint, YUM)

Bonterra Organic Chardonnay  (I can do this, but only with the twisty top from the organic section at The Jewel or Trader Joe’s and Whole Paycheck)  NOT ALL can tolerate this.  Thank the Heavens that big momma can.

MISS YOU


Hello gorgeous.

I have not been around…I know…I have decided that I am simply to busy having an awesome summer with the kids to be on the computer.  Sure, I have no money, no clients, no gigs, and therefore no money to buy the high maintenance food I eat, but I have a great tan.

I am about to post THE LIST.  The list of all lists…things that I can eat.  This you might be able to eat.  This DOES NOT MEAN that you can eat what I can eat.  This is just a guideline for people who share this allergy and are feeling like me, only seeing lists of things you CANNOT eat. I will post that list in a minute, and again, feel free to add comments, question me, tell me if my ass looks fat in this outfit, etc.

Things have been going okay with the new diet regimen. And when I say diet, it’s not really a diet. I have actually stopped losing weight because I have found some new cheats that are fattening like…5 ingredient really yummy french bread with irish butter. Not good. So I need to get back to the kale circuit and eat more of those yummy fresh fruits and veggies while they are in season and before I have to buy all of them at Whole Paycheck for a small fortune.

I recently had a visit with Dr. Mike and whined about hard hard everything is. He assured me that I WILL get over this… and I will be able to one day just do this all effortlessly and I believe him because my Yoda he is.
I think lately I feel really just pissed that I can’t eat out. I get angry watching everyone around me eat. I get really frustrated that I will never be able to go into a nice Mexican restaurant and order a normal dish and a ‘rita. So I am avoiding. I do that well. And I will have my own set of worry when the holidays come and there will be a virtual plethora of slutty dips paraded in front of me that I can’t dip my chip in.

But things are getting slowly more adaptable. I am getting into a routine of making a whole chicken, (Roasting, boiling or crockpot, I change it up) every Monday to make broth and eat the meat all weak. I need to actually go out and buy some jars to store the broth. Then I make a nice soup a freeze it. My freezer is stockpiling with little green soup-filled baggies. Like alien breast milk.

The other day, I made the DISASTEROUS mistake of watching Fast Food Nation. Now only was it disturbing and grotesque, it was also an interesting insight to the sad practice of how illegal immigrants are basically scooped up at the border and forced into labor. It was disgusting all around. And now, I am freaking out about meat. I love Facebook because I do one little post about it and 47 people have immediately a lot to add. I am going to look into some local places where I can buy meat in bulk. I am not apposed to eating meat. It’s the evolution of life. It’s the foul sanitary conditions, horrible labor practices and inhumane killing that is making me vomit in my mouth. Thank goodness I can’t eat a Mickey D cheeseburger anymore.
I will post information regarding local meat sources. Oh dear, I think this needs it’s own separate blog.

Lastly, I am having a Pampered Chef party as an excuse to get all my friends drunk on Arbor Mist and buy muffin tins.  I want to get a few things I need for the kitchen, but mostly I want people to come over to my house and get plowed with me.  If you want to come along, let me know, sugar.  You are invited.
