Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

Finding Food is a Challenge, When Your Allergic to CORN!

Who will find, or grow food for me if I become incapacitated?  Fresh unaltered food is hard to find.  The big food companies of America manage to contaminate their food.  Due to the negligence of the American food companies the government feels they need to step in and manage all food sources.  If American’s stopped eating food from the giant food processing conglomerates, they wouldn’t be getting sick.  Everyone on the planet needs to take responsibility for where their food comes from instead of blaming the government, when greed overtakes responsible farming or processing.  Due to greed and failed cleanliness practices most all our food is washed with citric acid, lactic acid, or vinegar, all of which are made from corn.  This contaminates most all food for the corn allergic.  We have to go out of our way to buy farm fresh produce, or grow it ourselves.  We have to locate local grown meat, and have to double check that it’s processed without any sprays or so called cleaners.  We have to stay away from the whole antibacterial movement.  Antibacterial is made from corn alcohol.   Guess what?   We aren’t getting sick.  Most of us don’t buy from the SUPERMARKET, therefore we are not getting exposed to as many germs.  Germs aren’t bad.  Germs build a better immune system. 

The corn allergic like seeing more of the “All Natural” or Non-GMO” movements like you find at the local farmers market.  I moved across country last year (4 days travel).  Now a year later I am finding locally grown food all over the place.   I put a ½ a beef in my new 20 cubic foot upright freezer.  I grew a garden and put up jars of vegetables, and frozen as well.  We are living on less, but getting so much more, since I am not working.  I am gardening, and growing our food.  We don’t need to buy very much at the store.  We are using more natural products, therefore lessening our carbon foot print.  As the garden grows I too hope to be able to share at the farmers market, where you can find uncontaminated real food.

If I were named Mary, and someone asked me "How does your garden grow?" I would answer, "It doesn't."

I can't seem to get a garden growing. Everything died except for two chard plants and they look pathetic. I hope to get something growing here that the iguanas won't eat before I can, but I am glad that here on the island people have kiosks all over the place with fresh home grown food. You make me want to buy eggs from them, too, if only I could be sure they aren't sprayed with something awful.

Do you dehydrate fruits and veggies?

Keep posting! :)

Great post! I'm from delphi corn forums and saw a link to your blog. We are trying to do the same things as you since we can't buy food from the grocery store. It's ever challenging and I'm afraid I don't have enough to get us through to the spring. Keep posting! :)
