Eating Paleo Diet
0

13 posts in this topic

This diet has been great for me. I feel so much better and haven't had the big D for over a week. What a nice change.I also went out of town and didn't have to stop to find bathrooms. I could actually enjoy the trip.

I wanted to know if there is any type of protien drink that I could use for breakfast. I was not sure if that was even possible since I have eliminated almost everything they are made from out of my diet. If this isn't a choice, what do you recommend for breakfast? I usually eat lost of fruit, but wanted more protien without actually having to cook a form of protien early in the morning.

My friend is using the Nature's Plus Spiru-terin chocolate protien drink. He also uses lactose free milk. I called and this is gluten free, but obviously is made with soy. What is non-GMO soy(non-genetically modified)? Is this any worse or better? I am not sure I want to even take a risk of trying this. He loves it though....but obviously his guts are more forgivng than mine.

I would like any suggestions. I also wanted to share one of my favorite chicken salads I have been eating lately. I love it and is very filling yet not too heavy.

Green spinach leafs

cubed grilled chicken (season to liking)

crasins

sliced apples into small pieces

Newman's Own ceasear dressing.

I don't know exactly what you are allowed on the Paleo diet, but I can't have any dairy or soy so I've been making a protein smoothie with powdered egg whites (Bob's Red Mill has some, and I found another brand at Whole Foods), a little nut butter (almond currently), a little stevia, a tiny bit of frozen fruit (usually something like peaches), and ice cubes.

The premise of the paleo diet is whole foods the majority of the time, with the exception of recovery drinks for endurance athletes. It also limits soy and dairy.

I usually crack 3 med eggs on a skillet in the morning while I am fixing my lunch. Flip and then eat. It really only takes about 5 min. My husband cannot get up in enough time to cook in the am, so he usually eats sliced ham or left over chicken (I personally cannot stomach chicken that early)

There are some people who just have trouble stomach food in the am. If a shake is the only option, then egg white protien powder with fruit blended would be the next best thing. There is a brand called Now available at Whole Foods that is good. It doesn't have a taste really, so it will go with whatever you put in it. (I use it post work-out with dextrose and cocoa)

How about buying some good sausages and just microwaving one in the morning? Hardly counts as cooking. I get some from Trader Joe's, chicken/turkey/garlic sausage. Short and sweet ingredient list.

It's hard to stay paleo unless you want to consume uncooked or powdered eggs in a smoothie. To me, cleaning up the blender is more work than microwaving a sausage.

I often eat poached eggs over sauteed greens or asparagus. You could blanch some asparagus and sautee it off with some onion or garlic or something, then refer it; AND boil some eggs. Cooked bacon (gluten-free obviously and uncured) tastes good cold the next day as well. That might work for not having to cook in the a.m.

Thanks for all the good suggestions. I think I might need to get up a little earlier or make my breakfast the night before.

I notice that the fewer grains (of any kind) I eat, the better I feel--I don't do a strick paleo diet, but I kinda follow it. For breakfast, I hard boil about a dozen eggs on the weekend, then during the week, I grab a couple of hard boiled eggs and a handful of cherry tomatoes for a super quick, no fuss breakfast. I also sometimes eat a handful of mixed nuts, and a handful of raisins or dried cherries for breakfast. I am always on the run! In the kosher foods section of your grocery store, you can sometimes find macaroons made with no flour--yum! That's as close to a paleo dessert as I can come. Or, nuts drizzled with honey would be paleo, too, right?

Yes, nuts and honey are Paleo. I am not the biggest honey fan, so I use agave necter alot. YUMMY.

As for the sausages, Super Target carries a brand-I think it is Apple Farms (I will double check when I get home) that is fully cooked, gluten-free and soy free. They make breakfast links that are smaller and larger sausage and I eat a lot of those.

I learned awhile back-it only takes me about 30 min. to get dressed in the morning, but I need an hour so I can prepare my breakfast and food for the day.

It takes me 45 minutes in the winter to make my brekkers -- I have to have potato or something like that to fill me up and keep me warm in the cold months. The trick for me is, then I have to do the doodles...but it's time to leave for school. ARG - I hate morning classes!

This quarter I have a class called "walking" (i go to a hippy college) and once a week we go on three hour walks. Not a good scenario for finding that one needs a facility. Maybe I should've gone with accounting or something. :D

Can you eat beans? Try this yummy dip rolled up in lettuce leaves or eaten right out of the bowl with a spoon:

1 can organic prepared beans (ingredients: beans, salt, water)

1/2 avocado (optional)

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

few shakes dried thyme

few shakes dried sage

about 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

optional: about 5 tablespoons gluten free vinegar (balsamic or regular)

Throw it all into the blender or chopper and chop until the consistency of peanut butter (smoothy or crunchy)

That's it. Enjoy. You can leave out the avocado if you don't like them. You can also add about a tablespoon of chopped onion if you like.

If you are really adventerous....add about 7 roasted almonds to the mix.

Enjoy!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
