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!
