Food for Thought
I look on the bright side. Perhaps this is a natural trait of those who have food allergiesin my case, dairy, egg, beef, shrimp, soy, some tree nuts and so on. When simple pleasures that are available to everyone else are off limits to you, you pursue alternate satisfactions. As a perpetual latenik, I never worry about showing up before appetizers are gone because I wouldnt be able to eat them anyway. I cant order off the dessert menu, sure, but I enjoy my $11 tawny port without guilt.
You are what you absorb wont catch on as a replacement for the old standard, you are what you eatbut its much more accurate. Whether faulty digestion causes food reactions or the reactions cause digestion woes is debatable. Either way, one condition rarely exists without the other. The fact is, for those with food allergy or intolerance, digestion needs help.
