I'm on fish and vegetables and buckwheat only right now. I can't even do rice ar any grains at all. No starches. No fruit. Almost no fats ( common dietician says) Lactose intolerant, of course. Absolutely no strong flavors of any kind. But then I'm just beginning the healing process and am grateful just to out of the IV clinic finally!

I really wish I could find a good web site that doesn't just say don't eat wheat, barley, or rye. Geeze! Wish it were that simple! And what are these "night shades"? I'm so limilted right now and keep making mistakes like when I tried eggs. Bad 4 me! Potatoes, beans...I never know what to do, so I'm just sticking with what I know right now. Fish and non starchy veggies and buckwheat. Starving here!!! AAUUGGHH!!!

I don't think you'll find a resource that list the common non-gluten foods that "most of us" have trouble with because everyone has different problems with different things. There are various testing methods for determining allergies and intolerances that can be useful as a resource. Blood panels from the doctor can show us deficiencies in nutrients and other things that may be holding us back from feeling our best. Make use of these resources, they can be helpful. There are also some diets like SCD(Specific Carbohydrate Diet) or an elimination diet that can be helpful. But it sounds like you should check with your doctor before starting such a diet.

For a lists of "safe" and "unsafe" ingredients and foods look here.


Some common things that are irritating to most people who have various kinds of GI trouble/disease etc. are corn, nuts, seeds(like sesame or those in fruits and veg. like tomato, cucumber, zucchini, etc.)

As you seem to be pretty much doing it anyway why not get yourself onto the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It is designed to help the body heal. There is a thread on this section which is worthwhile mooching through and if you want more info check out the 'breaking the vicious cycle' and 'Pecanbread' websites. There are also several SCD recipe sites out there too.

Many of us who have more than just gluten issues have gained a lot of benefit from this. You are welcome to join the thread and ask any questions. Some have been following it for a while and others are just starting so we are a mixed bunch in different stages of the healing process.

It is good for many different health issues both physical and mental - even things like bipolar and schizophrenia have subsided on the diet.

I believe that a lot of our health issues are due to rogue bacteria and gut dysbiosis - the diet works by removing the foods that feed the bacteria and encouraging the repopulation of the gut with probiotic beneficial bacteria.

Hi Utahlaura!

Just when I was starting to feel bad for myself cause I can't eat much I run across your post :)

gosh that must be hard, seafood is good occasionally but I don't know what I would do if I had to live on it!

For the first 2 months I couldn't tolerate any strong flavors or fats but I am finding I can tolerate some better now. Can def. digest animal fats now, others are a problem. I have kinda learned and narrowed it down to a couple spices I can use...like I react to onions, tarragon, basil and celery but can tolerate fresh garlic, cilantro & rosemary. Strange.

Nightshades are plants in the nightshade family: potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants etc.

They contain alkaloids.

For me I know eggplant is a problem, if potatoes are any variety but russet without the skin they bother me...green skins are the worse. It causes a sharp stingy feeling in my mouth, that just kinda makes me ache later.

It is sometimes recommended for those with joint & muscle pain (& lupus) to limit or avoid them. I cheat a little w/tomatoes and mild peppers because my diet is so limited as it is...but can tell a difference if I eat to much of them.

Nightshades are in the solonaceae family, some are deadly poison to us some are hallucinogenic (in a nasty way) :


*interesting horticultural fact* plants are grouped together in families based on the shape of their flower so all plants with the same shape of flower are in the same family regardless of if they are a annual or a tree. Example the Fabaceae family (aka Leguminosae) is the pea family... peas on a vine, beans, peanuts & mesquite trees are in the same family!

( I was a horticulturalist before I got sick, comes in handy now and then!)

I find this list helpful:


GAPS Diet is a dairy limited version of SCD

Also keep in mind the larger and longer living the fish you consume the higher levels of mercury it will contain.

Don't have mainstream shopping list, I cut out all processed food....thats gotta be hard, no fruit? no beef?

Hope you get to feeling better & have some luck with your diet!
