the foods i added into my diet with no nasty side effects include:
pickle slices (on top of awesome, free sliders.)
blue koi dumplings with soy-based sauce
blue koi china moon
blue koi basil chicken lettuce wraps
and...wait for it...
i also ate a few samples of habanero cheddar at whole foods and felt fine, too.
so just as i suspected all along, it seems diet isn't a huge key to my 'condition.'
and in other news, my new mattress comes today. anyone want to buy my old one?
