It’s DAY 7, and the final day participating in an allergy food rotation diet.
I am filled with a few emotions right now….
RELIEF – There is a sense of calm that’s come over me. I felt throughout the week I was stuck in lock and load mode. Always a bit anxious about eating outside of the restrictions.
GUILT- Guilt that I feel so relieved that the week is over. Guilt, that babe and I talked about eating one of my favorite foods at midnight tonight.
ACCOMPLISHMENT- There were several opportunities for me to ditch this 7 day food rotation diet. I was happy that I didn’t cave in.
SADNESS – I am seriously worried about Sarah’s health. It hurts me to know that she is forced to make so many unfair adjustments.
BUT… here’s the truth. It’s not about me.
IT’S ABOUT SARAH AND AWARENESS OF THOSE THAT ARE LIVING WITH SEVERE ALLERGIES.
This is not a fad diet to Sarah and others forced to make strict dietary choices. Sarah is adhering to a strict diet so that she doesn’t encounter an allergic reaction that could kill her.
What’s the point of this 7 day food rotation diet? AWARENESS
The NEXT TIME a family member, friend, co-worker, ask you to make an adjustment because of an allergy, DO IT!
