In Topic: Constipation While On Elimination Diet

10 November 2010 - 09:35 AM

After resolving most of my "C" issues once going gluten free, I still struggled sometimes with certain foods. I am now taking 250 mg magnesium oxide daily and I am quite regular. I stumbled on to some literature about how there are many people low in this mineral. You can read much about (magnesium supplementation) from many sources on line. I've never been big on supplements, but knowing that I suffered from malabsorption for so long, I figured reasearching and obtaining quality supplements was a wise for me.

I had tried everything from more water, fiber, fruits/vegetables etc. and those things just didn't help. It was terribly frustrating to do all the "right" stuff and still suffer. I know how difficult living with constipation is, I hope you are able to find relief.

Thanks you guys! I have to bookmark the links! I got off work early and have been working in the kitchen for the past 5 hours! I'm pooped! For anyone who might read this thread looking for ideas...here are some of the things I made or will be making:

crustless mini quiches
bruchetta with a porcini mushroom-parsley garnish
toasted bread cubes with gruyere and chorizo
crackers with goat cheeses garnished with herbs (my friend has a dairy and I got 7 different kind--yippee!)
crackers with cream and lox
mini chicken salad sandwiches
deviled eggs with lox garnish

Think I'm forgetting something...this last week has made a zombie out of me!

In Topic: Plantain Flour

Much of the buckwheat tea I saw has barley in it so I've not had it in years.
Miss it on a hot summer day in Japan.

I usually use buckwheat and quinona flour mix for gyoza.
Usually make vegan ones with figs, feta and spinach.

Sometimes with whole buckwheat or brown rice filling.
I did buy and tree Bobs gluten Free steel cut oats last week so I;m wondering how that will be in a filling.

i'll have to practice again with the banana flour
take care

Ken, thanks for sharing that. I'm going to let my (Japanese) friend know, we shop together and she reads labels for me at the Asian store!

If I'm more than 30 minutes away from home I have some food with me ha-ha! I have to eat small amounts throughout the day. When I travel I bake up a breakfast bread that has onions, ham or bacon, cheese (well now I'm not supposed to eat dairy either). I add some herbs. It seems to work (appeal to my palette) anytime of day. I also bake up some sweet muffins. I have to know I will ALWAYS have something the moment I start getting hungry, otherwise I get cranky and difficult to be around! :0) My husband will vouch for that!
