I decided to try out a bag of Belgium Waffle mix that came in my @mrcookingpanda box… I dug out and dusted off the @bydash Mini Waffle Iron and mixed up a serving.

RESULTS – Waffle Mix did not need the butter. Next batch I will replace with just milk. [โ…“c mix + ยผc milk] Reduces the calories considerably too.

These Tribali Foods burgers were on sale at Kroger and I ordered the variety pack. I have not been disappointed – they are really good!

Polenta Fries are a good lower oxalate solution vs potatoes (which are currently on my ON HOLD list for another 2 weeks). Tube polenta makes it super easy – just slice into fry lengths and air fry or bake.

๐ŸŽฏ Tracking – Calorie Command in โ„น๏ธ @iTrackBites

๐Ÿฝ๏ธ GOAL – 3 to 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.

OXALATE APP I AM USING
The best option I have found is from the same developers as the Histamine app. It is an Apple only app but it looks like it is going to be very helpful. The basic color system (low/med/high) rating is free but if you want actual numbers, it is also $6.99

MY TOP 3 WORST INFLAMMATION TRIGGERS
These are not the same for everyone and in 90% of people they don’t trigger a reaction – but if you are constantly dealing with being bloated, headaches, muscle or joint pain or digestive distress – they may be worth considering as potential inflammation triggers.
