I walked around the office with my nose up in the air not out of pride but for fear of smelling any food from the breakroom that would trigger an episode.
This went on for a while and out of frustration one day, I decided that I would try a combination of the fruits and vegetables that I was familiar with growing up and combine them into a salad. Before you knew it, a combination of peppers, pineapple, lettuce, ziti and salad cream turned into a salad that I was able to digest easily without holding my breath. From that day, it became my staple food for the remaining term of my pregnancy.
It should not be surprising that this experience earned the pineapple salad a special place in my menu.
