Hmm... Something happened to my previous post.

You're right about soy sauce being the sort of thing you want to be careful with. I use it sparingly, and watched carefully for any reaction the first time. I'm sure I would be in trouble if I drank a bottle, but the amounts I use haven't caused problems.

Personally, I was very strict with the diet at first, and then would experiment with small amounts of foods I had heard others on MAOI's had used without problems. If I didn't get any warning signs (headache, elevated bp) I would assume I could try some more.

I still won't touch foods very high in tyramine, like aged cheeses and meats, tap, foreign, or homemade beer, and red wine. I also avoid old leftovers and make sure what I'm eating is fresh.

Generally the common quality in dangerous foods is that they have all been "aged for flavoring purposes." Tofu isn't aged, is it? It's probably fine. I'm sure there are lists available of safe and unsafe foreign foods.

I wouldn't want to give up eating with my friends, either! (If only I had some in this new city!) I'm certain, though, that you with some research and caution at first you will be able to continue eating many ethnic foods.

Best of luck to you.
