Good for you JW daughter. I too make everything from scratch, but only because I have to. I have an intestinal issue and the only way to not be sick all the time is to follow a very strict diet, no sugar, grains or potatoes at all, I have to make my own yogurt, mayonnaise, seasoning mixes, salad dressings, etc., because sugar and starch are in everything manufactured, often even when not on the label. It's not as bad as it sounds because I usually made my own food anyway, but it does require a lot of extra cooking, especially as my husband doesn't eat that way. It did cause to get more creative with what I do eat, and I eat a ton more vegetables.
But it's worth it, the two years I spent before I figured out what was wrong was miserable. I consulted a GP and a specialist, neither of whom diagnosed me correctly. It's called the Specific Carbohydrate diet. The idea is that many people cannot digest certain carbs, so they sit in the intestines and feed bad bacteria causing a whole host of bad things to happen.. You can have fruit and honey because those carbs do not need to be broken down to be absorbed. As a plus I have lost weight and my fibromyalgia is gone, no muscle tenderness at all after thirty years.
