I am pretty sure that apple got me – itchy eyes, muscle spasm in my neck and jawline, congestion – and I peeled it. So although Granny Smiths are one of my favorites – it has to be put in time out on the naughty step for 4 weeks.

I hit a rough patch this afternoon. It turns out that my blood pressure had started dropping in the beginning of a POTS episode.

For me, my normal range is 145-160ish / 85-100ish…so while this is okay for most people, for me it is a substantial drop.

I think this is because of the new high blood pressure medication that I’m on and so I’m going to talk to my doctor about taking half of it instead of a full dose and see if that helps. I ended up taking a Nana nap and when I woke up I was feeling much better and my BP had stabilized.

Interesting discovery! While I was looking for a sauce to have on my rice noodle dish (which I ended up just using butter and salt on and it was still tasty!), I noticed that caramel was [0] on the histamine left. That in itself is not unusual because most of the sugars and sweeteners are. But I didn’t think that it would be necessarily low in oxalates.

As it turns out, in that amount, it’s actually [0] there as well. I took the ingredient label and matched each item in the oxalate list and the two items which contain 1mg each, do so at a one cup measurement and I’m certainly not using one cup of brown sugar or one cup of milk.

So I quite enjoyed my 2tbsp of caramel. Well within my calories and fits the Wellness Reset plan. Got to love when that happens.

πŸ’ Tracking – Calories only – Calorie Command in @iTrackBites

🍽️ GOAL – 4 salad plate meals (no regular big plates, no OMAD [one meal a day] ) – smaller meals to reduce the amount of histamine triggers consumed at one time and limit reactivity during the reintroduction trial phases.

If you aren’t familiar with my situation, basically I live with several autoimmune issues… an “inflammatory overstimulation response” brought on by my basic blood cells thinking they are Spartan Warriors and attacking everything in sight.
