Corn Allergies and Living Without Corn - A Daily Task

Going corn free in America in very difficult. I won't lie to you. You probably can't eat at any restaurant and really be sure of what you are getting. You can say you are allergic to corn, but they don't really know what that means. For example, I wanted to order a cake, and I had to say, no vanilla, no powdered sugar, no vegetable shortening. Now, where is the cake? Needless to say, it can't have frosting.

You must double check these - I can only say that I don't have a reaction to these products!

Fast food is a complete disaster. There is probably no way to eat at any fast food place without getting corn. Plain baked potato? Don't use the iodized salt, the sour cream or the butter, they probably all have corn. Burgers? No way, the bread has high fructose corn syrup. Soda, don't make me laugh. Salad? Sorry, no dressing for you.

Fish Oil Update:

Heidi, a visitor and nutritionist, suggested Carlson Salmon Oil to help heal the gut troubles associated with corn allergies.  She is with www.drwittel.com.

What To Look For At The Store (Please ALWAYS read labels carefully) Fruits & Vegies - Some waxes may bother you, otherwise this is a great section of the store

  • Meats - I buy grass fed meat (personal preference), chicken - watch out for "broth" solutions that contain corn corn derived products
  • Yogurt - Any flavors? Probably has corn. Stick with plain, read the label
  • Snack Items - Most snack items have corn Derivatives. Look for plain items, no cheese, no BBQ, etc
  • Nuts - I love them and get the sea salted ones to avoid regular salt
  • Salt - Sea Salt
  • Tea - Some tea bags have corn derivatives, I get loose tea and use a filter
  • Coffee - read labels, instant can cause trouble, best to stick with brewed plain coffees
  • Bread - I make my own because it's cheaper but some health food stores have corn free breads

I know it's hard but if you quit corn and realize you are losing weight, your blood sugar isn't going up and down and your feet don't hurt anymore or you aren't tired all the time, it looks like a pretty good trade off.

Try it for a few days, and you will see how good you feel. You will crave those foods, however, like cigarettes, so be prepared.  I would love to share your stories here too. Maybe then, the doctors will wake up and smell the "corn in the coffee!"
