I'm on day 30 of my whole30 but I'm extending to 45 days because I still have some issues to work on. I started this program with multiple health problems and tons of food allergies and have made great improvements, including identifying some new allergens. I feel like there are still some issues that could be caused by food so for the next 15 days I want to try to eliminate more stuff, the question is what? On the one hand, I have serious OAS (oral allergy syndrome) with many known reactions to birch, beech, and ragweed family foods. I still have some of them in my diet though, so I could go all the way and also eliminate white potato, artichoke, banana, zucchini, almonds, carrots, coriander, celery, parsnips, and peppers. On the other hand, one of the things I reacted to during my whole 30 was eggplant, a nightshade, and I also have arthritis- which has been recommended to cut out nightshades to reduce symptoms. That would require cutting potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and most spices. Of course, I could do both, then do a really, really long reintro to try all these different veggies one at a time... I am mainly reluctant about the tomatoes, peppers and spices because I use them in everything. I can't imagine cooking to a whole 30 meal plan without them. IDK, I may be rambling, I'm just wondering does anyone have experience with multiple food allergies/ OAS/ nightshade issues? Any advice on doing a VERY restricted w30 (I already have a list of about 3 dozen fruits, veggies, and nuts I can't eat). thanks!
