Need Easily Digestable Foods?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just diagnosed last week. I am learning alot and so glad I found this site. I have read over the years about foods that are easy to digest or some that need to be partially cooked (broccoli for example) to help with digestion..I know that to give your body a break many fast. Have any of you read about whether it is good to give your body a break etc when you begin your celiac recovery? I know milk is hard for me to digest. I try to use soy but know that I am getting dairy in other foods (my salad dressing for one)

What have you experienced? If any of you have fasted what did you use? Juice, water??? Thank you for your wonderful imput on this forum! ;)

By the time I went gluten-free, I had lost the ability to digest pork, brassica veggies (broccoli, cabbage, etc), bell peppers, and all dairy (including hard cheese, yogurt and butter) plus all things with added lactose (like my allergy meds). I gave up all of these things while I was healing and have been able to add them back into my diet slowly. I would try completely eliminating dairy for a couple of months at least, and then try adding back a little yogurt or hard cheese (low lactose) to see how you respond.

My Celiac dietician has me eating some of the following:

never the same foods 2 days in row

digestive ensymes

Lifeway Kefir

Bananas

yams (not the skin- fiber hard to digest)

blueberries

blackberries

skinless apples

Nothing acidic

boars head chicken from deli

tuna (plain, nothing but salt added to it)

air popped pop corn- no butter

carrots

And always chew as much as you can

If you need a food guide you might want to look at the gluten-free Specific Carbohydrate Diet and their legal and illegal food lists. I have used this for a while now and benefited. If you want to know more about why it works for Celiacs and people with IBS it is all explained in the book listed on the website. After several months I was able to add foods to my very limited diet and really enjoyed eating the foods on the legal list. I eat lots of broccoli now.

I've been helped by eating junior baby food (the types with no added sugar - just the pureed fruit) for fruit I need. I have found it much easier to digest than eating the fruit itself, and less bloating and gas. Baby food veggies are not very tasty to me, but maybe you'll like them. Also, in the early stages I would grind up my veggies and meat after they were cooked - again, seemed to help with the digestion process.
