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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
