What Foods Give You Energy Or Make You Feel Good?

I thought of this subject while eating supper last night. I had a bulb of fennel. Fennel just makes me feel good when I eat it. I really like the light licorice taste. I found it at the produce department in my local coop.

I also feel good when I eat salmon or beans. :D

I like honey off a spoon. It's my treat. Also fresh berries with yogurt.

I really get a lift from a banana in the morning. (I never really liked bananas all that much, but I really enjoy them now.)

That sounds delicious! What brand of honey do you buy?

I like watermelon with a little sugar sprinkled on top. Tastes like candy. I also love sweet potatoes and kale chips!

The best honey is local honey. They say if you eat honey produced by local bees, you are helping your immune system by taking in something made from the pollen that you come into contact with every day, and that if you are allergic to any of those pollens, the honey can help reduce those allergies.

I've always had problems with honey. I don't know why. I AM allergic to bee stings, but I doubt very much that that would extend to honey. All I know is that if I even smell honey, it feels like someone just put plastic wrap over my nose and mouth. I find it very hard to inhale at all.

That is scary. I would stay far away from honey if I had a reaction like that. Thats how I get with bananas. It has something to do with latex which I am very allergic to. Last time I had one, I couldn't breathe. I will look for some local honey. Thanks. :)

Sounds yummy, but I have hypoglycemia and can't have sweets. I like fruit, but I even must be careful with that. What else?

I had problems with a lot of kinds of honey. The one I get is expensive, but I can eat it without getting sick. It's called rare hawaian organic white honey.

Good question!

Probably Actimel (probiotic drink) is my number one feel good food. Also bananas as mentioned above. My one cup of coffee a day helps to combat the brain fog and gives me a rare energy boost.

    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!  
    • Really, Really Foul Breath Post-glutening?
      In addition to eating gluten-free, I attribute the following to knocking out my bad breath once and for all: 1. SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash (this is what really did it for me!) 2. Flonase Nasal Spray 3. Dr. Tung's Tongue Scraper 4. The obviously brushing and flossing twice daily (goes without saying).    
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I went in for an endoscopy to find out if something from my stomach/intestine was causing my bad breath.  A biopsy during that procedure revealed that I had Celiac.  I thought it was strange since I ate pizza, pasta, and other bread/gluten items almost every day without issue, so I decided to confirm the biopsy result with a blood test. I took the blood test twice (once on a high- and once on a low-gluten diet) and it came back negative both times.  I just assumed someone at the earlier biopsy lab must have messed up my analysis or accidently mistaken someone else's biopsy for mine, but after reading this thread it seems like my initial biopsy might have been correct all along. My doctor suggested doing another endoscopy, but I didn't want to foot the bill for that.  Also, my older brother has Celiac which was confirmed by both a biopsy and blood test. Eating less gluten did seem to help a little with my bad breath, but SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash along with Flonase nasal spray and a Dr. Tung's tongue scrapper really did the trick to solve the bad breath issue. I'm just assuming I have Celiac and eating "gluten conscious" until my next endoscopy in about 10 years. If that biopsy comes back positive again, then I'll be strictly gluten-free.  I'm just glad I don't have many symptoms.      
    • Anxiously waiting
      You might ask your doctor if they have a standby/wait list Kal.  Some do that and then they can fit in people if there are cancellations or no-shows.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
