In Topic: Gluten Isn't The Culprit

18 September 2007 - 06:16 AM

Well I'm still doing okay on gluten. However, I'm also still having reactions to something, and dairy is my top suspect. On Friday I ate a few small pieces of milk chocolate, and had the same gas reactions a few hours later (it feels like extra gas is getting produced in my intestines, which causes mucus to be produced as well, probably as a protective measure). But on Sunday night I had three slices of cheese pizza and only had a small reaction, which could have been from all the fat. So maybe it is lactose after all. I think I'm going to skip the lactose/whey/casein for a week or so, and then try some cheese again. If that goes well, I'll move on from there.

Oh, and I did find a soy cheese at Whole Foods which doesn't have casein. I think it's called Vegan Gourmet? I haven't tried it yet since I'm still wary of soy.

Noodles and Co sounds great... wish we had it here! Good to know for travel though.

Your question about fortune cookies sparked my curiosity, so I did a search and found a recipe on this site:

I wonder if anyone sells them pre-made - would be great to bring along with me to P. F. Chang's or eat with my stir fry's at home. :)

Hmm, my regular body temperature is below normal too. I had my thyroid checked less than a year ago though, and it was fine.

In Topic: Soy Sensitive

I used to eat tofu and other stuff made from soy all the time before my intestinal issues started (I was a vegetarian). Once my problems started getting worse, I began to look at food intolerances. I noticed that stuff with soy protein in it (like veggie burgers and soy protein powder) quickly gave me migraines and made me lethargic. I think that soy may have been giving me gas too, but it seemed like everything did that. So I don't know if I'm actually intolerant to soy or if it just gives me migraines in large amounts. At some point I'd like to try forms of soy that may be more tolerable than others.
