Non-allergenic Diet

Since I was young, I am diagnosed with skin allergies, whereas, as allergic diet was recommended for me to follow (as in forever). This is why, my family always need to consider my situation when it comes to deciding for our everyday menu and its preparation. There were times that I felt so bad, thinking that I cannot eat some (but for me it was almost all) of the most delicious, sumptuous and tempting food invented on Earth.

It was March, when I came back to the Dermatologist to check on my "allergic situation". It was then, that the dermatologist told me that I am suffering from Atopic Dermatitis. I just want to share my list of the food that I need to avoid (this is based from the tiny piece of paper that the dermatologist gave me after the checkup) :

Food to avoid:
  1. Chicken & Egg
  2. Seafood such as Shrimps, Crab & Squid
  3. Sardines and any saltwater fishes
  4. Bagoong, Soy Sauce & Fish Sauce (Patis)   
  5. Eggplant, Sayote & Papaya
  6. Mangoes, Oranges and Pineapple
Suggested Non-allergenic Diet:
  1. Beef
  2. Pork
  3. Any leafy vegetables

Yes, I know that it seems so hard to have allergies like mine, but still I am able to manage. Thanks for the people around me who always remind me of the things to avoid, and encourage me that I have the best diet ever. 

Good thing, I'm not allergic to nuts, at least I can say that I can still eat chocolates! :)
