I don't eat a LOT of fruits-certainly not near enough if you believe the FDA food chart. 5 servings of fruit EVERY day??? Is that possible??
I sometimes have a banana for breakfast, if I can find one with NO brown markings or soft spots whatsoever. I LOVE grapes and asian pears and will have those any time they are on sale, but otherwise, not a lot of fruits for me.
I like apples, but I notice that every time I eat them, my mouth starts feeling funny....the roof of my mouth feels like it's been stung, my tongue itches and swells a little, and it's a bit hard to swallow without a little bit of pain.
We recently bought this yummy mix:
And I can't stop eating it...though I have about a 90 minute period after eating an apple that makes me wonder if it's worth it (it is!).
I also get a strange reaction when I peel potatoes, not quite the same, butstill annoying and a bit worrysome. Every time I handle potatoes from the bag, I start sneezing and feel as if I have a horrible flu. Instantly. I can't remember when it started, but it's been at least five years. I know that I used to peel potatoes when I was younger without a reaction, but at some point, my body has rejected the idea of it.
I wonder what other unexplainable instant-body-reactions I have to look forward to...
