In other words: What to eat when you can't damn well eat anything? I'm not a low-carb follower. Did it for a while, did not work, caused major insomnia. I need a measure of carbs in me to be able to function. So keep that in mind for this... (more)

I can't seem to tolerate bananas or plantains (cause flaring), but I can mostly get away with sweet potatoes. I'll try upping those instead of the rice and rice flour. I asked my rheumatologist about periods and autoimmune, and he said it's... (more)

First, it's not clear from your post whether you're gluten-free. Are you? Second, are you dairy free? Egg white free? Perhaps nightshade free? Not all of them may be helpful but I don't know of anyone who's not helped by going dairy-free.... (more)
