A Corny New Wrinkle


Well, it appears I have a new an challenging wrinkle in my food regime. I seem to have become intolerant to corn, which is… unfortunate. When I eat corn, I have internal discomforts and facial dermatitis, and when I don’t eat it, I feel much better and my face clears up like magic.

Poopsicles. This is a vexing development, and quite recent. To look at the bright side, however, I’ll now need to re-examine my favorite foods and see where I can eliminate this insidious pest, which means new blog posts and possibly some new favorites!

I’ve started doing my research and finding all those sneaky places corn is added to food, and of course my stomach lets me know inexorably when I’ve had some. This will push me even further into non-processed foods, which is all to the good. So, here we go!

  1. Wow, I have to say: I’m sorry, because corn is in *everything* in the US. Hang in there.

    • It is the very devil, and it is also the truth: corn is in everything in the US – everything processed, anyway. The GF bread mix that I make, that I’m fortunately almost out of, has a lot of cornstarch. :p So out that will go. And the recipes in the GF bread book that I’ve been loving also depend heavily on cornstarch. So I’ll have to figure out if potato starch or tapioca starch (or something else) would be a better alternative. :} It’s going to be a challenge, but it’ll be interesting. In defiance, I made myself a gorgeous lunch, which I’m preparing to post. Mmmmmmm. 😀 I don’t plan to suffer.
