Re: I can eat tomatos again

I have develop food allergies, I have been on armour since sept 2003, hoping to see if the food allergies go away. They have not. Also, I have found out that I am allergic to florida avocados but not california. Make sure to eat few pieces of tomato like you have been doing and keep track of the kinds of tomatoes. Don't forget that food allergies can be dangerous (anaphylaxis attacks), so be careful like you have been by eating small amounts at first. Keep us posted, it is good to hear good news.

Oh, now you tell me. Tomatoes are a huge staple in my diet!! I'm trying to up my veggies, but the nightshades (tomatoes and peppers) are the ones I like (and I don't want to overdo broccoli for the thyroid-suppressing effect). What's left (I already have enough zucchini because my husband likes it!)?
