I'm chuckling here....about
his safe diet....it is safe for him anyway....considering when he was flaring so badly he ate so little. For him what does not seem to bother him are -- eggs, pasta with some butter, cereal with 1 % milk, he eats the Boston Market turkey dinner with mash potato entree almost every day (the smaller size one with no stuffing or mushy vegetables) shrimp on occasion with pasta in a light scampi type sauce, at night he loves popsicles - he switches from the regular and the artificial sweetened ones and milk duds!!! Chicken soup agrees with him very well. Applesauce. Tea with honey and coffee on a very rare occasion and stoppped all the carbonated drinks.
He will order fish outside - sometimes fried but takes off the batter - 3 or 4 french fries. Also fruit in moderation.
Some of these foods wreak havoc for others but these seem to be ok for him anyway.
Heather,,,,, didn't catch what the Pita reference was....nevah is definitely how we say "never" with our Bostonian accent
