I actually get sick if I eat much red meat- as in my stomach just can't process it in any quantity. I never get enough protein because of my problems with various foods. I always knew eggs were evil. I love mashed potatoes but rarely eat them because they trigger a mini flare. I avoid eggplant just based on looks alone. I love tomatoes but try to eat them sparingly every summer though I have a tomato sandwich at least once. I have problems with yeast containing products as well, they make me feel bloated and sick to my stomach I never understood why I just thought it was me. I trust the food restrictions suggested in The Lupus Book but not on some unknown webpage.
