Hi all,

 

Recently diagnosed and have completely de-glutened! I'm looking for suggestions on any foods that can help to promote faster healing of the small intestine. Are there any foods that can speed up recovery? I have not had an opportunity to see a dietician yet, and am looking for suggestions. Here's a typical day of eating for me (I only drink water):

 

Breakfast: Poached egg, smoothie (kale/spinach/chard, berries, OJ, greek yogurt, water, banana)

Snack: Apple

Lunch: Chicken, tomato, basil and feta salad (with olive oil)

Snack: Nuts (i.e. walnuts, cashews or almonds)

Dinner: Homemade turkey chili (lean turkey, tomatoes, kidney beans, peppers, onions, spices)

Dessert: Banana with natural peanut butter, coconut and a few chocolate chips

 

Suggestions on diet overall and healing foods appreciated!

 

Thanks so much.

Your diet is certainly healthy provided you are not allergic or intolerant to any of the foods you subscribed.  Some celiac disease patients often have to give up dairy products until there is sufficient healing of the villi.  I'm assuming you feel good eating all these foods!

Hmm. How would I know if I have a food intolerance or allergy? The only food I know I'm allergic to is shellfish.

 

Truth is, I don't really have any symptoms other than heartburn which is managed by medication - so I really couldn't tell you if something affected me or not. Everything seems ok!

 

Will eating dairy slow-down healing?

Were you asking what foods have a vitamin punch that help heal with great vitamins and minerals? Thats what I thought you were asking. Because it sounds like what your eating are very vitamin enriched food. So are you asking what other foods are vitamin punched foods so to speak?

Basically. Just wondering if there are any particular foods that are recommended to help heal the gut more quickly. If there are specific vitamin or mineral recommendations I can figure out what foods are best sources of those. Thanks!

I know! I think I am on the same page you are :) I am wanting something to help me heal. I think what we are going to get is really there is nothing but , time , makes you heal. Time and a good healthy None gluten diet. Other than that it is nothing. Take your Vitamins and Minerals your probiotics and wait it out. I want to feel better yesterday.

I am 3 months in and I feel much better. Still having some problems but over all before Dx's I was feeling like a 1 on a scale of 1-10 now I feel like a 5 on a good day a 6 so I feel much better but I want that 10 soo so bad!!

I have been told that avocado helps clence your gut in a gentle way. I don't know if there is anything to that, but i love avocado and eat it every day, så I hope it is true :)

A probiotic supplement will help some, and to have a healthy and natural diet, but it seems like you alredy do :)

I was getting ready to post the same question! I've been gluten-free for a month, but I am still not feeling great.  I read in several blogs that it is best to eat cooked fruits and vegees instead of raw. The Dietician told me to avoid all processed gluten-free foods for a few months.  Also, I read that drinking bone broth was healing - contains collagen, good fats, and proteins.  It can't hurt, so I am going to try.
