Will Eating Nuts Inhibit Recovery After Going Gluten-Free?
0

9 posts in this topic

I went gluten-free (self-testing to see if it solves my chronic, unexplained stomach problems) only about a week ago and I am surviving just fine with the wonderful help of... nuts. If I need a snack, that's what I go for now. But I've seen a few people suggest that eating nuts might not be the smartest move right after going gluten-free... is that true? If I continue to eat nuts could it cause my gut not to heal from the gluten damage as quickly? I just don't want to mess up my experiment...

Eatring nuts should not bother you unless you for some reason do not tolerate them. Nuts are actually a food that is good for us, they have good quality fats and good nutrition. So long as they are not bothering you they should be a fine addition to your diet, almonds especially.

We get raw nuts then soak and dehydrate them prior to eating them to remove the phytic acid and make them more digestible.

Thank you, mushroom!

domesticactivist- Interesting idea. Soak them in what, exactly? Just water?

It depends a little I think on what form of nuts your eating. Are you getting ones that are saturated with salt and have been very processed (and possibly coated in all kinds of fun stuff like MSG or even wheat) or are you getting raw ones that are in a natural state? Regularly eating a serving of raw almonds is supposed to actually have a ton of health benefits from getting rid of a headache, improving cholesterol, to giving you energy (tons of good energizing vitamins and minerals in the skins).

What about popcorn? My 12 year daughter old can't eat gluten due to a bowel obstruction (intussusception) surgery on New Year's Eve.

She was at a friends last night and I sent her with gluten-free snacks and she ate them all and called me to ask if she could have popcorn. For some reason my intuition said no.

Has anyone on here had any issues with digesting this after recently going completely gluten-free and/or after this type of surgery?

Me too. Raw soaked and dehyrdrated nuts are much easier on a sensitive stomach. Usually you throw in a little sea salt. Use plenty of water and change it at least once partway through the soak.

I think skipping popcorn for a couple more months until she really has time to heal is a good call.

Thank you guys very much! The nuts that I eat regularly are simple, raw almonds. Now I know I should go ahead and contain using them as a snack. :)

And thank you for the soaking instructions!

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
