Feeling Bummed About My Ever-narrowing Diet.

Recommended Posts

That sounds great! After reading here that you can do that, I did an internet search for a cashew cheese recipe. All contained yeast flakes of some sort...I'm sensitive to yeast too. :o Is your recipe different, or does anyone know of a substitute for the yeast?



You can leave the yeast out. It does add some flavor but is fine without it. I've started a thread with some gluten, dairy and mostly soy free recipes that are in cookbooks that I have.



Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

First I lost gluten, then dairy, and now I'm 99.9% sure that I have to give up soy as well. (Ok, no one is holding a gun to my head about the dairy and soy, but I sure don't like eczema).

I got glutened from an Amy's frozen meal, so I've crossed those products off my list (most of them seem to have soy, anyway).

I know that I can eat a wide variety of healthful veggies, fruits, grains, etc. But I just feel so limited now. There really isn't anything I can eat out anymore, and I have to make everything from scratch if I want to eat.

Just venting. Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled surfing.

me too, got gluten, wheat, dairy and now suspect soy and nightshades are a problem for me. all my free from foods that i buyas a treat i can not have now, which does my head in, seriously!!!! you go ahead and vent, this a good place for it. ;)

married with 3 boys, maclain, dylan and finlay. symptoms for more than 10 years but only diagnosed may 06. lactose and casien intolerant may 06.

I know how hard it is to give up your old foods, but this process is much easier if you start looking at what you can eat. :P I've discovered new foods that I love now. The bumble bar, Back to Nature rice thins, papaya, mangos, buckwheat, quinoa, spagetti squash, raw nuts, mung sprouts, dried figs and apricots, etc.

Hang in there... It does get easier. I don't even drool anymore when I get near my old foods :P

Carolyn, I understand exactly how you feel. I miss being able to eat out once in a while. I never learned how to cook, so that is a real problem for me. I am fortunate that I only have to deal with gluten and wheat. Since going gluten free, I have lost 50 lbs. and I am in a downward spiral that I cannot seem to get a handle on. I have been gluten free for 9 mths. and I feel worse now than I did before I started. I look ten yrs. older than I did before I started. I don't know what the answer is.

I am right in the mix with you. I'm sorry its tough. I think we will have both good and bad days...some strong days "I am woman, hear me roar"...and other days we will be mad and sad and frustrated. If you ever want to talk, please PM me.

I'm reacting to various things..can't pinpoint them. Just sick all the time. And yet I am still mad I can't have ice cream.

hang in there. it sucks. agreed. but we'll get through it!
