Update. Challenge 3.

This was a FAIL. Oh boy.

The food being challenged was Yeast / Fungi and as I have not tested wheat yet I couldn't have bread / active yeast so I was limited to Mushrooms (a bunch of different ones), Nutritional Yeast and Marmite. I love all these so enjoyed my breakfast (potatoes with Mushroom Gravy), incorporating all in the gravy, though started feeling a bit not right by mid morning (queasy, headache-y, gassy) which was a bad sign. I had a lovely Mushroom Soup, again with all three items above, for lunch and by mid afternoon was in agony, - really bloated, gassy, weak feeling. Not good. Needless to say I didn't persist with a Yeast / Fungi dinner, and the digestion issues continued into the evening. I think everything was emptied by the time I went to bed.

My first fail, which is a positive thing! I'll revisit these foods (and any other which fail too between now and then) at the very end, after a decent break too, and do each one on its own, and each type of mushroom on its own too.

Next up is (I think) Citrus, so I'll update after that.

Oh no! No nutritional yeast?! I hope next time you add it back in you are able to handle it better!
