Years ago when I started Chasing Tomatoes, it really was a place just to store recipes. I never did plan to turn it into a food blog, but somehow that's what happened. People really seemed to enjoy what I was creating over there and I had a lot of fun learning new things and experimenting with all kinds of new foods. I used to say that I believed in full fat, and full of love treats, which were exactly what you'd find over there. And you will!
Then in 2017 I was diagnosed with severe food allergies, along with AERD and had to completely re-vamp my diet. Gone are the days where I could eat anything I wanted; in fact, I can't eat most of the food over on Chasing Tomatoes anymore.
- egg white (unless cooked well )
- all tree nuts (especially hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts and cashews)
- green beans
- sulphites (especially in wine, beer, cider, or vinegar)
The food here is full of meat, dairy, vegetables, and fruit along with some oats and other grain like things. I can't eat most things from a box or a can, so I pretty much make almost everything myself. It's not hard, it just takes a little work-and I'm happy to share with you what that's like!
If you have any questions, feel free to shoot them by me and I'll try to answer!
