Gluten Free Carbs?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have noticed there are a lot more gluten free options now where I live.  My concern is that since I feel I am 'carb intolerant', they will still cause digestive issues and bloating. Anyone?

Tell me about, I have ulcerative colitis in addition to celiac carbs set it off the deep end with flare ups. For years assumed it was just bad gut bacteria anyway.  I found a mostly ketogenic diet of low carb veggies, proteins, and a bunch of fats is way to go. I have removed all grains, beans, starchy veggies, fruit, and sugars. I feel great no bloating unlimited energy etc. NOW I do crave porridge, hot cereal, noodles, etc. But I found a great way to get those cravings smashed using miracle noodles. They make rice, and all kinds of noodles/pasta all gluten-free and carb free. Order from their site in bulk for the best pricing, I might suggest getting some for a trial. Some people do not react well to the fiber in it as that is mostly what they are. Especially if you have a bunch of bad gut bacteria.   There are a ton of recipes you can use them in. I even make fake oatmeal with the rice, and porridge by blending the noodles with a bit of almond milk, coconut flour, egg whites, and almond butter then stirring while it cooks on the stove.   Kelp noodles go great in dishes if you can get over the slight crunch.

For snacks I tend to go to dried seasoned veggies like freeze dried and seasoned kale, brussel sprouts, etc Sejoyia Foods has a nice selection, along with alive and radient, and rythem foods for kale chips.  HailMarry makes some good nut based gluten-free snacks that are made with almond and coconut with a bit of maple normally. And I find the only jelly I can have is the SF ones from polaner jams or smuckers Sugar free. Sweeter wise I stick to stevia from NuNaturals, Monk fruit, xylitol (makes some people sick), and erythritol.

Other obvious options like seeds and nuts are great go to snacks, I love Pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, and almonds.

Another thought if you can avoid dairy, the lactose sugars and other proteins in it can wreak your gut if you sensitive. There are plenty of non dairy cheese alternatives I can give links to recipes making your own cheese dips, and where to find and order non dairy cheese if you wish.

ONE last thing you should probably look into a digestive enzyme and a good probiotic to help you break down what little carbs you do eat.

I will post some links on where to get snacks online and about the noodles. Hopefully they help you in your daily life like they have mine.


^ Seeds from them are great


^All kinds of snacks just search gluten-free, they also have the kale chips, single packs of the noodles, rice, kelp noodles, etc I was talking about.


^Various nuts you can order


^Bulk order the noodles
