Being a foodie, you love a lot of tastes and flavors, different ingredients that just tingle your taste buds and make your heart complete. That being said, obviously, one of your worst nightmares would be allergies. Luckily for me I don’t have any food allergies.
Except bananas. Odd, I know.
It’s not a dangerous allergy where I would need to go to the hospital if consumed, but it is mighty uncomfortable, and can also cause a bit of pain.
The thing is, when I was younger, I could still tolerate the reaction; just a bit of a bothersome itch in my throat. I used to still eat bananas quite often then, but in recent times, it has gotten worse. I now taste iron and my throat feels like fire!
My favourite thing in the morning would be a lovely blueberry-banana smoothie; it was delightful, refreshing, healthy and filling, but now even my lips start to sting and swell slightly when the liquid comes into contact with it.
This seriously upsets me! I actually love banana, and the fact that I can’t eat it anymore is just annoying. Do you know how many divine and delicious recipes there are that involves banana? Especially the ones I’ve seen lately! I’m always paging through cookbooks, scrolling through pinterest and seeing cooking videos that look incredible, and then suddenly the bananas appear!
Banana based non-churn ice cream, banana smoothies, banana this, banana that! My mother makes the best banana bread! It’s like the universe is making fun of me, trying to torment me!
Do you have any food allergies that drive you nutty (excuse the bad allergy pun)?
