Foods I Can & Can't Have

If you're seeing this page, it's because you asked what I can and can't eat.  While I very much appreciate the thought, eating food has become sort of a game of Russian Roulette.  One food may not kill me, but it could seriously fuck up my life for 12-36 hours.  The wrong food can give me crippling joint pain, fatigue, and/or brain fog.  In the first few months of having Hashimoto's, I remember having butter and sour cream on a baked potato and finding myself nearly unable to walk 4 blocks home.  Another time, someone made me special cupcakes for an event.  The next morning I woke up with pains shooting down my hips and legs at 5 am because the well-intentioned baker didn't connect that "Crisco" was pure soybean oil, one of my severe allergies.
