Life goes on.

Honestly, I guess this can be really boring unless I'm posting recipes everyday and talking about everything I learn.

One newish struggle is allergies in the family. My oldest has had a peanut and nut allergy since he was 10 month old. Plus other allergies, some food but they went away. My middle guy is 11 now and he only started getting allergies when he was about 9 and he too allergic to nuts and peanuts. This winter he had reactions to either shellfish, a preservative or something in the can of a brand company. He also reacted to lentils and tofu (so soy) as we've changed the way we eat. He has become vegetarian himself. He makes me so pround.

My youngest has also had a reaction to peanuts. So all three brothers avoid the nuts. I myself have been having interesting reactions too food. The one main one that drives me crazy is my cheeks turn bright red when I have something. I haven't figured it out yet but I think it's pesticides. After I eat an apple with the skin on, bright red but it does happen with other foods, so I have to really watch what I eat but I haven't narrowed it down yet. But I will.
