Sweet Potatoes

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Guys, I added my first food today since I didn't itch last night and I woke up with milder cold symptoms this morning.

And of course I bought myself a small cute sweet potato.. I want to let you know I'M LOVING IT :-D

Thank you so much everyone who's been helping me. I owe you so much and you will forever be my friends! I don't know you I know, but you're the first people who actually listened to me and took me seriously.

I hope my post and happiness aren't premature haha :-) But whatever happens I'll be taking it one step at a time.

It's always good when you get to add a food. I hope you can add back more.

I read that probiotics help shorten the duration of a cold. I was surprised about that.

HAPPY DANCE for you :D

Sweet potatoes literally saved my life. At one point ( when I was at my sickest )they were among the only 4 or 5 foods that I could eat safely .

Hang in there it does get better :D

That's great that you were able to add them back in!

And you gave me some hope for my daughter, she loves sweet potatoes but they were bothering her belly so we took them out and I want to trial them soon for her.

Thank you everyone :-)

Yes I loved them! They're like a yummier version of chestnuts! So good and easy too cook!

They first time it was cooked perfectly, but I sadly overcooked it the second time and didn't like it too mushy :-)

By the way it's been a month since I started the elimination diet. If all goes well this will be the second ok food I've added. In four days I'm trying oats!! :-O

For those of you who found that oats don't work, what type of symptoms did you experience?

I probably should have double checked before, but I just realized that sweet potatoes are high on salicylates.. not very high but still high. This means I would have to eat them in a very limited amount. Go figure!

You do mean certified gluten free oats, right?

Oats are one of those grains that are gluten-free 201 - most people wait about 6 months or more before trying them again. They just seem to be tough on the system.

That said, it may be just fine for you!

Hi Dani,

That's good that the sweet potatoes work for you. I would not add oats back so soon though. They cause some f us to react just like wheat, rye, and barley. So you don't need to be in any hurry to find out they are a problem. If you do react to them it could set you back several weeks.

I am heating up some sweet potato beef soup right now. I cook beef in a pressure cooker with the sweet potatoes and then mash them up together. You can add any spices like garlic, salt, pepper etc or lentils etc. Onions too. Makes a nice soup.

I'd think about something different too ad besides oats though. How about avocados? Do they work?

I wouldn't go with oats just yet. Some celiacs react to them as though they are a gluten grain.

How about quinoa or buckwheat for grains?

I'm afraid I can't add avocados (as squirming stated). I had them in my diet earlier but had to remove them because they're very high on sals. I need to limit the sweet potato intake as well since they are high as well (yet not as high as avocados).

I'm thinking about adding pears maybe. They are very low on sals.. While I do like them, they're still not one my favorites.

I was very excited about the oats I was counting the days for a long time. Someone told me earlier (don't recall who) that a month would be enough but I guess that's not gonna happen ;-( Too bad for me.

I'm gonna have to go through the low sals list of foods until I find something that works
