    Walnuts!
    It was so horrible, because I found out while I was out to dinner for a friend's birthday. My throat got all scratchy and swollen and it was just weird. Everybody was freaking out. Hahahah.

    The skin of fruits. I never understood why, but they make my mouth itchy and my throat close. If I peel the fruit, I'm fine, but that damn skin gets me every time.

    I'm not allergic to anything, but I've allways wanted to go into a resturant and order a pork dish, but say 'hold the pork, I'm allergic.'

    This kid in my class is allergic to wheat or gluten and every time we have like parties or something that invovles food he always has to bring his own wheat free version. It sucks.

    Garlic and sunflower seeds.

    Garlic gives me diarrhea and horrid stomach cramps, whilst making me break out in itchy red bumps.

    Sunflower seeds make me throw up and itch.

    Eggs, all nuts, cat fur.
    I can only eat small amounts of eggs if they're in things, but if I eat too much then I get rashes and throw up. I had my first cake, like, two years ago lol
    But I can't go near nuts. Nuh-uh. I keep a five metre radius from nuts at all times.

    Peanuts. My throat gets horribly itchy and my face omg lmfao EVERYTHING JUST PUFFS UP.
    Spinach. My throat gets itchy and tight but I eat that shit every day because I just love it too much Weird
    Coconut gives me hives.
    Melon (like cantaloupe and the other nasty kind, whatever it's called) make me vomit and my face becomes swollen. And god my fucking lips when I have melon lmfao it's so bad to the point I can't even eat a fruit salade with the melon picked out. My lips still swell and I still vomit.
    And I don't really know if I'm allergic to cinnamon or not, but whenever I have anything cinnamon my throat gets itchy and I can't stop coughing.

    gluten,
    ...which is in pretty much everything and makes eating out interesting.
    I found out when I was almost done with pastry degree but it gives me the opportunity to venture and pave my way through the gluten free desserts and breads career.

    Tomatoes Sad Pizza is annoying for me. I can eat tomatoes, but I just get these giant pimples and it's not really worth it to eat pizza and look like a pizza at the same time XD

    I've been allergic to coconut since I was a kid, but I didn't get hit with gluten intolerance and lactose intolerance until I hit my twenties Facepalm

    I can handle avoiding dairy, but gluten is so fucking hard.

    Milk (mostly in raw form, by raw, I don't mean unpasteurized, I mean unprocessed) and cream hurt my stomach. It's really dumb. I can eat cheese, ice cream and yogurt all I want. But I can't have milk, milk chocolate or white chocolate. Dark chocolate is fine. I just use soy, coconut or almond alternatives for any cereal things. Heating it seems to ease the problem some. I can make a simple sausage gravy recipe that uses milk and eat it with only a little discomfort. It definitely is not lactose intolerance as lactose free milk affects me the same way as your standard milk. Plus, you know, being able to eat other milk products ... alfredo sauce though? Forget it!

    Onions hurt my stomach and otherwise give me diarrhea and/or make me extremely queasy/make me throw up. The severity of my reaction depends on how much I've consumed. I love it! Not. Onions are in EVERYTHING. It could be worse, I could have a peanut or gluten allergy but it's up there on the list of annoyances. People tell me to pick them out. How ignorant can you be? Onion salts, powders and dried/dehydrated onions do not seem to give me an issue.

    Lastly, green bell peppers. I can eat red and yellow just fine. It's about the same as the onion one. It's all digestive distress luckily or not so lucky depending on how you view it ...

    Go on, tell me how weird that all is. You know you want to. Eating out is a nightmare. I always tip the waiters/waitresses well for going out of their way to make sure I get something onion-free. I know it's kind of their obligation where food allergies are concerned but still, I feel bad for making them run back and forth before I can place my order.
