Protein: Gluten Free And Dairy Free And Soy Free?

Recommended Posts

I started a weight training program recently, and I'm trying to find a post-workout protein source (bars, powders, shakes) that doesn't have gluten, dairy, or soy in it. Other than keeping beef jerky in the car, what are my options? My preference is a bar, but I'll take any suggestions.


Gluten free since Feb 2006, Dairy and Soy free since 2009

Anemic off and on since 2003

Negative tTG Ab, IgA, Gliadin Ab IgA, wheat allergy (IgE) blood tests (Feb 2006)

Positive wheat allergy skin test(Apr 2006)and dietary response (Feb 2006)

There are some nut based bars but overall you are unlikely to find too much on this front.

Hard boiled eggs, but you should keep them cold. A jar of peanut butter/sunflower seed butter and a spoon. The tiny cans/packets of tuna?

All of the powdered things I've tried have been awful beyond belief, and I don't even know which are gluten-free.


2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable

3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG

4/2010 Negative biopsy

5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)

5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?

I ended up choosing one of the Nutiva Hemp products. The guy at whole foods said he thought it tasted the best. Most of the hemp and rice proteins just don't have as much protein per serving. I think the one I got has 11 grams. That's about half or one third of what some of the other powders have per serving.

So how much protein do I really need IMMEDIATELY after a work out? I can get enough protein during the day in general. I just can't get home and cook up some meat right after lifting.

If you are looking to put on lean mass, you actually need protein before AND after your work out. One of the easiest, cheapest and most convenience is the 100% all natural turkey breast from Costco. It comes in a 3 pack that tear apart for about $6.00. Each package is resealable. You can roll them up or eat the whole thing out of the package with a knife and fork! If you don't have a Costco, look to other retailers for preservative free lunch meats.

Also, almonds and walnuts are excellent sources of fiber, protein, and GOOD fat. Try to incorporate non-salted ones before and after a work out as well. Believe it or not, you NEED fat to build muscle.

Be VERY careful when purchasing beef jerky. Always read the ingredient statement as many of them contain soy sauce. And for hypersensitive folks like me, it's just enough to ruin a day.

Unfortunately, I found this out the hard way!

NOW Foods makes a pea protein powder. You can also make your own sunflower seed bars, etc. Ordinary garden peas are loaded with protein. How about a thermos of pea soup? Takes just minutes to make, using a blender. Lentils are a very good source of protein too, and the red ones make a good thick rich soup.

Oh yeah, I've been on this diet a while now. I know where the gluten is hiding. :)
