Actually, I concur with alex. I have come to not mind eating good, home-made foods (just makes me feel better), and I know I’ll have to watch my diet for the rest of my life with gastroparesis and no colon. My pacemaker is a tool to help, but not a cure. However, I also concur with mrs. candida; I do want to try new foods sometimes, just small amounts without too many consequences, and drink alcohol with out feeling like cramp the next day, so I can travel and go places without worrying too much. So yes, I enjoy creating recipes, but I do want to indulge every once in awhile in some treats.
Also, some things I know I’ll never be able to enjoy lots of again, include dairy. Some people just have allergies to things! Only dairy I seem to tolerate is goat yogurt every once in awhile. =)
