Just over a week ago, I had some broccoli cheddar soup from a restaurant. I believed it was safe. I had a flare up shortly after having eaten it. At first I thought that perhaps dairy was a trigger and we hadn’t eliminated it yet, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. It could also be that seeds, nuts, and/or sugar is a trigger. However, I did some digging and found that not all of the ingredients for the broccoli cheddar soup were listed on the information that I had seen. This soup also had less than 2% potato flour as a thickening agent. It was enough potato to trigger me.
I went to the grocery this evening to get the ingredients to make my own vegetable soup. I also looked for some bacon, as I’m participating in The 10th Kingdom watch week this week. The only bacon I could find that didn’t contain sugar was turkey bacon.
The point is, that everything has the potential to contain a food trigger. It’s a lesson I have to keep learning because I’m okay for a while and then I get lax. Know where your food comes from and know what is in it. We have to stay vigilant. Locally grown food is always best, but even that needs to be checked for additives, pesticides, etc.
