I took my first bite of the last bowl of pasta and threw it out. I've been trying to be super-creative so as not to get bored with a very limited diet, but... yuck. We'll write that one off as just a BAD IDEA. I replaced it with a bowl of plain pasta, no butter or anything, with just a sprinkling of pasta seasoning. Yum. WOW, why didn't anyone tell me how GOOD rice pasta is? I put off eating it even though I bought it last week because I was afraid of it.
In other news, I am officially out of food save for a bag of shrimp and some random things that can't be eating on their own, like a tub of cream cheese and a bag of shredded cheese.
Oh, can anyone tell me why I can't have xantham gum? It is literally in every single one of my salad dressings and it took me forever to find those salad dressings! I read the wikipedia entry on it and I couldn't find anything mentioning any of my allergens, but I had been warned to stay away from it. If I can't get an answer I might keep eating it.
Oh and I have had a hard lump in my throat since I woke up this morning over 12 hours ago. I assume it is something I ate, isn't that an allergy symptom? Tighening esophagus or something? I feel fine otherwise, but I had a bad bellyache last night. Did I eat anything bad? Literally EVERYTHING I hate eaten or drank is posted here.
Lastly I want to thank Anonymous who took the time to leave me long, time consuming, and very helpful comments. I really appreciate your time, stranger!
Salad is mixed greens and spinach topped with a turkey breast seasoned with garlic, sea salt, and ground pepper. The salad also has some pasta/salad seasoning on it. It is organic, salt-free, msg-free, etc etc etc. There is also organic shredded cheese and zesty Italian dressing with no-no xantham gum in it - let's see if it kills me.
The salad (edit: made of FAIL) is rice pasta with artichoke antipasta.
