Hi All -

 

When I first had to go gluten-free almost two months ago - vegetables didn't bother me.  I love to eat salads.  However since I've been gluten free, raw or cooked vegetables and especially bagged lettuce is bothering me a lot.  I know the lettuce is sprayed with a preservative that has corn in it and I did find out that I have a corn aversion.  But.....do they spray the same stuff on fruits/veggies????  Just the ones in the produce section at the grocery store - not the bagged ones.  Because what is weird is all of a sudden, the past couple of weeks, veggies are now bothering me a lot.  I bloat immediately and have the heavy feeling in my stomach and all of that.  It's not like eating gluten but similar.  Pretty much the same as what happens when I ingest corn.  So - what is going on?  Why am I all of a sudden having trouble with the veggies.  Does this mean that I have to buy ALL ORGANIC EVERYTHING???

I want to know, if anyone can help, why this is happening and what are they sprayed with.  ??  Also - I'm not sure but am I becoming more sensitive to things...the longer gluten is out of my system??

I'm confused - please help!!!!

I had asparagus for dinner tonight, it wasn't organic, and I bloated right away, and the heaviness.....

??

 

Thanks All

Random question... do you rinse stuff after buying it?

 

Take a sink full of water and add some white vinegar to it (I can't remember the measurements). This will make a wash that will clean any veggies/fruit really well.

 

However, i am not sure if white vinegar is made from corn.

 

Same principle with this one as well:

Yes - I rinse everything VERY well.  I wash it for a long time.  I also had brown rice with it - do you think that could be it?

I had to go completely organic for a while at first. Pesticides, chemical fertilizers, whatever it was, it was bothering me because I hadn't healed and my immune system was reacting to almost everything. After a few months I was able to go back to grocery store produce, but I still buy organic whenever possible. I just can't see the sense in eating fruits and veggies that have been gassed, waxed, chemically fertilized, sprayed with poison, or otherwise adulterated. Organic is more expensive but to me it is worth it.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!
