I guess I should add that I'm an ALL or Nothing at ALL kinda gal. Christmas wrapping in my teenage years included eggnog, chocolate turtles and Christmas music. I can't have just one chocolate. Maybe I could, but I don't trust myself so I avoid all treats. It's been so long, I'm afraid I would eat half the box.

I think this was the first Christmas that Santa didn't put a box of Cracker Jacks or Lucky Elephant Popcorn in my stocking. (I always gave it to my friend's kids.)

Sometimes I have "gorging dreams" where I'm raiding someone elses fridge at stuffing birthday cake and other things into my mouth. I can taste them in my dream - believe me. I wake up with a jolt and a sigh of relief knowing it was just a dream.

He's still working and enjoys golfing and travelling so it hasn't put a damper on him, I think it's harder on us knowing he can't eat.
You just opened my eyes to stop my whining. Like I mentioned before I have some food allergies and absolutely cannot have wheat/gluten and dairy. I also cut out sugar. That seems to be in all Christmas desserts and going through the holidays can be a little tough on me. Knowing what your father has to go through, I need to be VERY THANKFUL that I can at least eat.

I am glad to hear your father can continue on with the things he loves to do!

Thanks. He's my hero! My husband couldn't believe when I started baking, he loves sweets. He used to hide them and I told him he didn't have to do that, I have will power. Sometimes we'll be at a gathering and I'll choose something on the sweet tray and tell him to eat it for me. He doesn't like all the same things I used to like, but he'll eat it for me anyway or my mom will if she's there.

I know what you're talking about though about how hard it is to find things you can eat. I know two people who have too much iron in their system and have a hard time with various menus. I read food labels, I've got my husband doing that now so we can reduce the sodium in our diets. I bought a few gluten-free items to try them thinking they might be healthier than the other stuff, but honestly they seem more soggy tasting.

Restaurants are getting better in my city about offering "smart menus" so if people are trying to eat healthier they know what they're getting.

Nut allergies have to be one of the worst that I've come across.
