Ref to the soy milk & IBS --you may want to read the labels and check out the ingredient carrageenan--it's in soy milk and most ice creams.
Seems I'm allergic to it. Used to love silk vanilla soy milk, thinking it was ok cause it's natural right? Had all kinds of IBS trouble, found
this article, quit drinking it, IBS not so much a problem now. Also, used to love to eat Klondike ice cream, but noticed when I ate one = royal IBS,
skip for a couple of days = ok, eat another one, yep royal IBS. My other half eats them all the time, but for me they are synonymous with acute pain
and I have no problem staying away from them now.
Also I'm allegic to something in the burgers at fast food joints. Absolutely cannot eat anything from micky d's, not even the fries; BK and Hardees
I can do 1x a week, but if I do 2x week, it's like I've got the flu, ache all over, sinus issues, breathing problems.
I've never really liked bread or corn, eat mostly brown rice and potatoes. Cook mostly from scratch (in my dearly beloved cast iron fry pans
using fresh produce; eat mostly my own cooking, mostly protein when I go out; read labels always when shopping; and grow and put up a lot of my own
This list of Top 10 Scariest Food Additives
was a real eye opener
Also, taking Align
probiotic supplement has really helped with the IBS. It has a type of gut bacteria in it that helps your body's intestinal
flora digest food better, similar to yogurt. You can find it at walmart etal in the antacid isle.
BTW-cast iron pans are best when seasoned properly --see here
. I don't turn
my oven up that high, so I don't get smoke, and they work just fine. I don't deep fry anything, but use them mostly for stove top meat, veggie and
rice casseroles. Wouldn't trade them for anything, plan on passing them down to my son and his sons, like I've got my grandmother's 2 fry pans plus
my own 2.
We all like to cook!
Hope this helps.
