Paleo Confusion

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I've hit a place I call the valley of confusion, and I have seen conflicting info. One a few sites it states even gluten free grains are forbidden, yet on other sites it states quinoa is safe. What really has me puzzled is one that listed a buffalo chicken melt muffin. I am no culinary whiz, but how is a muffin possible without grains? The entire recipe checked out gluten-free, but huh on the recipe portion. If anyone has insight on this please share.

Paleo, is one of my Dr.s recommendations,but not my first choice I'd rather stayed vegan. However after close examination and seeing gallbladder and gallstone activity is associated greatly with veganisi , I am going to explore the recommendation, seeing last Sunday's surgery experience was on the chart of holy crap, I don't like this and I feel like hot sludge fresh off of a French quarter sidewalk the day after Mardi Gras.

Thanks,

Seri

For now, just stick to eggs, meat and fish, fruit and veggies and fats/oils like butter and olives until you are healed from surgery. That is my diet. Later, you can expand your diet.

Muffins? They are probably made with nut flour, like almonds.

Eat "dinner" for breakfast!

Funny you say that as that is normal here as I work 3rd shift where I do. As for recommendations on it, actually been on it as Dr.s orders.

A newly diagnosed celiac is often cautioned against grains, including corn, quinoa, rice etc., as they can be difficult to digest.  Your gut is still raw and sore, in need of healing.  Stick to easy to digest foods and avoid those that irritate.  If you are interested in Paleo and excellent book to get is Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo.  Easy to read and understand, easy recipes.  Paleo is whole foods, veggies, meats, fruits.  As you heal you can add simple grains if you choose.  (rice, quinoa_

I will check out that author you are referencing.  Trust me Paleo is not my first choice as for the past 3+ years I have been a vegan, and vegetarian longer than that. However Thankfully I did find a healthcare system is fairly astute to Celiacs and NCGI issues put me on that thing. So from what research I have done on  my end to make sure they are not full of it, I checked into it myself and it has seemed to help alot of us who suffer from Celiac Disease.

There is a lot of meat for protein on the Paleo diet.  No beans as those are hard to digest.  If you choose to try it you could probably skip the beans, grains and dairy (which are harder to digest anyway) and load up on the veggies.  Maybe some fish ?  What I love about the Paleo way is the many ways of fixing veggies.  The book I suggested has wonderful stuff like pumpkin pancakes, cauliflower pizza, zucc pancakes.  Enough veggie dishes to get you started.  Being a non-cook I found the items pretty easy to prepare.

I cheat with rice, but only white rice.  I seem to tolerate it well.  I can't tolerate quinoa or beans etc.  I can't much tolerate nuts or coconut either, but I seem fine with coconut cream.  Odd.

You can use a few flours with Paleo, like arrowroot I think, and maybe buckwheat and mixtures of nut flours.  We also use coconut flour.  It works out quite well.  Oh and we often use rice flour because we tolerate it.

It starts with food was the book that started me on the paleo journey with a 30 day strict paleo diet. The Whole30 website is informative and also has alot of .pdfs that you can download and print that have food templates and good vs bad foods. (http://whole30.com) I still have the print outs on my fridge as a reminder 6 months post whole30. Pinterest is awesome for meal planning and recipes. I use it weekly to plan for what I need at the store.
