Foods To Eat After Being Glutened?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was glutened several times in the past month, so symptom-wise, I'm pretty much back to where I was six months ago when I was diagnosed. The problem is that no matter what I eat, I have the same problem -- stomach rumbling (in an uncomfortable way, not to mention audible), bloating, discomfort, intense nausea/pain at times, and gas. Everything I'm eating is gluten free - either it's specifically marked so or it's fruit. I just had two tangerines and my stomach is going crazy. What's going on? What should I be eating when I'm glutened? Is citrus too harsh on my stomach?

I also got a pro-biotic yesterday that I thought would make my stomach pains go away. Maybe that's causing something weird?

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Probiotics can take a month or so to work. Stick with it. Sometimes eating anything is just going to hurt when you've been glutened :(

At this point, you're still getting a ton of cross contamination I'm sure. That's got to be a really tough diet to navigate in college. Do you share a kitchen with a non-GFer?

I've been getting glutened a lot lately too and it is so frustrating! Always cc from eating out at this point I'm pretty sure, I like to go to nice restaurants. What's your eating out situation like?

My favorite fail safe gluten-free comfort food is penne vodka. I use Bionature Organic gluten-free Penne and Emeril's alla Vodka sauce... both gluten-free and amazing! But you have to be sure you're cooking it in a clean kitchen or it's pointless.

I'm a big fan of smoothies as well. There's an awesome vegan organic "fastish food" place by me that makes the best thing when I can't put anything in my stomach but I'm about to pass out.... pear, banana, kale, almond butter, and soymilk. Tastes so yummy! And I'm not normally a kale person, so I love to get it in there.

I don't know if you meditate, but I know that helps me with my gluten attacks a lot. I feel like it settles my stomach slightly and strengthens my immune system, I focus on those things and envision myself healing.

I find Cream of Buckwheat to be very soothing. Go with bland food like baked potatoes and broiled chicken, cooked fruits like applesauce and well cooked veggies.

When I read your post it made me cry because I have been gluten free for 9 months now and the last several days have been just awful. It reminded me I am not alone, so thanks for that.

I had to miss a day of work today because the stomach pains were just too much. They have subsided but the nausea persists. I have been doing my old standbys, but this time they aren't working so well.

My stand bys are: flat gingerale

peppermint tea

chicken noodle soup (gluten-free noodles obviously)

I hope someone answers your question and we all get a little relief. I hope you feel better very, very soon.

I'm dealing with issues from being glutened as we speak. What seems to help me is eating marshmallows when the stomach pains come, nuts work well too. Vernor's or any other gluten free ginger ale works really well too. Just sit tight, take it easy and get better!

I second the applesauce. Applesauce was the only thing I could stomach for the months I was sick before diagnosis, and now it's my go-to food when I've had a gluten accident. I also much on rice chex dry because they settle my stomach without bothering it.

I cringed when you said you were uncomfortable after the tangerines--I can't imagine putting something so citrusy (acidic!) straight into an upset stomach.

This is my first time being "glutened" as everyone says. I was living in eugene oregon since becoming gluten free 6 month ago and it was very easy to avoid there. Staying with my parents in indiana for a few weeks... Not so much. I've noticed that the only thing I've felt like stomaching at all is the sushi place near my work in chicago-- plain rainbow or California roll with the fresh ginger. They also make this smoothie combo that has felt very soothing-- banana avocado. Sounds odd but it's amazing. Everything else makes me want to vomit.

The diet I went on to find out what was causing my trouble is the one that helps me most now.

Plain rice for 1-2 days, then add back in raw salad vegetables slowly. Then back to regular food. I can do this because being glutened destroys my appetite anyway, so plain rice sounds pretty good to me when I'm sick.

The tangerines might be too high in acid for a sensitive tummy right now.

Think about the "brat" diet for sick tummy - bananas, rice, apples(applesauce), & toast. It works well for being glutened, too (minus the toast, LOL).
