Safe And Comforting Foods?

10 posts in this topic

I'm wondering what foods would be safe and soothing to eat after I have taken in too much gluten and suffered the effects(diarrhea, cramping, nausea, etc.) ?

Thanks!

Avoid gluten to start with - entirely! Sounds like maybe you haven't started a gluten-free diet.

Then think of the BRAT diet

Banana

Rice

Applesauce

Toast - make it with gluten-free bread

Good luck and hope you're feeling better.

Yes avoid gluten and when you eat take enzymes.Also probiotics are good to boost your immune system and help fight off things and also help with digestion. Try having tummy mint and chamomile teas by celestial seasons. Also altoids and peppermint things help with nausea. As long as you are not on a gluten-free diet if your a celiac your intestines will get chewed up and it will slowly kill you. There are increased chances of cancers and other things.

Kraft brands will not hide anything so unless it says wheat, rye, barley, or oats they are safe. Progresso has some soups that are gluten-free as well. They will also not hide anything. Soup with gluten-free crackers are good for the stomach too. Thai kitchen also has a good spring onion soup that is gluten-free. Mashed potatoes are a comfort food for me and help me when I don't feel so hot. Ok well hope this helps if you need more help let me know :D

I go with simple foods without too much fiber - something that will give my intestines a bit of a rest (but not too much :) ) - and something that's not likely to nauseate me. Applesauce and rice, vegetable broth with a few veggies (some peas/carrots - no corn), roasted chicken, and peppermint tea.

Thanks for the suggestions! You're right. I haven't begun a gluten-free diet yet. I'm waiting until I can get some bloodwork done in March(my dh doesn't have insurance for us until then. I've unfortunately been putting alot of things on hold because of that. We just can't afford the doctor visits without the insurance.)

Kaiti~ Are there any specific cancers there are increased chances of or is it all or any? My Mom and Grandma are breast cancer survivors, so that obviously puts me at a high risk. Do you have any links to articles about this?

Thanks!

I did a search for you and here are some links:

Gastrointestinal cancer and lymphoma are what I have heard we are more likely to get without following the gluten-free diet. There are many other serious issues that can occur if we do not follow it. Hopefully these articles will help you out a bit. Let me know if you need any more info :D

I got these suggestions for coping when you've been glutened from another forum:

If you have been glutenized, these help:

bananas

papayas (fresh, juice, pills)

aloe vera juice (in Walmart or Target pharmacies, or drug stores)

tonic water

okra is excellent for soothing an irritated GI tract. It contains mucilage which acts as a coating. Amazingly effective. Good for constipation, too, faster than the usual prunes

My "safe" food has always been potatoes. When I am hurting so bad that I can't eat anything, the only thing I can still have is potatoes, either mashed or baked. It takes away the hunger, fills the tummy, and is the only food that doesn't bring on more pain.......

Potatoes work well for me, too. Also, gluten-free chicken broth

Baked potatoes settle well on my stomach when I have been glutened. Jello and yogurt also settle well on my stomach too.
