2 weeks hive free (almost)

After 2 weeks, I've managed to keep the hive breakouts to a minimum. The only time I've broken out is when I eat something with an ingredient that I missed when reading the labels. It's usually hidden malt, soy, or rice. I keep trying to find a snack food that doesn't contain allergens. So far, I've found fruit, cheese sticks, and chocolate candy bars.

I made my own spaghetti sauce with crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, and celery salt. It was pretty good with cooked ground beef and wheat angel hair pasta. I made my own cole slaw the other day with packaged shredded cabbage and mayonnaise with celery salt. It was pretty good.

For lunch today, we had chicken thighs baked with "shake and bake." It was delicious!

I have a roast in a crock pot with potatoes and carrots for dinner tonight.

We went to Alamo Cafe yesterday, and I tried a chicken burrito with their avocado sampler in the burrito with the chicken. It was delicious, and no breakouts! It wasn't difficult skipping the chips and salsa. My son didn't have any either. But we did some damage to their tortillas.

I think my next attempt at converting a food will be enchiladas with flour tortillas instead of corn tortillas.
