Will I Ever Feel Better?

Recommended Posts

Lettuce goes right through me, too, but iceberg salad for instance doesn't. So it might depend on which green leafy veggie you use for salads.

I like a banana and a very ripe pear for breakfast, those seem very easy on my tummy first thing in the morning.

Blended veg can taste a bit gruesome!

What you can do is blend your veg then freeze it in an icecube tray.

Once frozen add about 4 cubes to your liquid fruit smoothie and blend again.You won't then be able to taste the veg! :)

I made my first smoothie this morning, all I had in the house was a banana,some frozen blueberrys then I threw in some ice and added soy milk, first sip was not so great so I added a little sugar,it wass really good. I hope the say milk was gluten-free..it says "natural Flavors" I bought the store brand.

thanks for the help :D

I'll check the gluten-free flours and see if bean flours added, the gluten-free flours mixes and breads don't sit well,they seem very heavy

Hi there. I couldn't help but empathize with you. I was having severe stomach cramps, gas and bloating up until 6 months ago. My GP put me on the food allergy / sensitivity diet where you eliminate the most widely known foods that people are allergic to, like wheat, eggs, corn, dairy, soy, chocolate, nuts, seafood, etc. She told me to add foods that contain natural digestive enzymes like papayas and took me off meats. I added healthy oils, like extra virgin olive oil, to my diet to keep me regular. Also taking Beano before each meal, 3 tablets for me, is helping. I'm having trouble with staying away from the foods that I know cause me gas and stomach cramps, but I'm not in constant pain anymore or having bouts of D.

Good luck ... marcia
