Cold Cherry Soup (Gluten-Free)

Like the peach and the tomato, the cherry is another fruit that is nearly synonymous with summer. I can remember the summer joys of buying fresh-picked cherries from a roadside stand, and also going to visit my grandmother, where we picked cherries from the very generous tree in her back yard.

More recently, I was visiting family in Sonoma when a neighbor invited us over to help lighten his cherry tree. Memories like these that are all stirred up when I use cherries in dishes. This recipe uses sour cherries, lemon juice, sugar and yogurt to create a memorable and refreshing summer soup.

VSL #3 is safe and powerful probiotic. You get it at Costco in pharmacy or online. Metamucil is too hard on my system too. Psyllium husk is easier on the system and I tolerated it a little better. It did nothing for my husband because it was too gentle for him.

You might want to have your GI test for SIBO. Similar gut symptoms, common in celiacs, often agrivated by probiotics because you are adding more microbes to the overgrowth (FYI, the overgrowth is typically good bacteria is the wrong place). That's one of the next things they look for in a celiac still having symptoms.

thank you i will look for it. i was switching around ( culturelle, walgreens probiotic, walgreens probiotic with enzymes, just plain digestive enzymes) so, i know what you mean. at that point, i couldn't tell what was messing with my gut and what wasn't bothering me. ima try those, and *just* those and see how it goes. thanx again!

I found that I did not have enough iodine in my diet... so I take a Kelp pill... every day or so... I use Kosher salt and Pink Salt... so I need the iodine... I am shocked by what my ankles look like... I was always swollen... If you can eat shellfish... you should not have any issues with this...
