Bored Of What I Eat.. Going Crazy

Recommended Posts

I understand you guys, so don't worry :-) I'll drop the yogurt for now and take the powders and pills. Just the thought of it makes me anxious but I really do get what you're saying, and who am I to argue with the ones who are feeling well now :-)

Thanks for your concerns and for explaining through my stubbornness!

So in reality, a probiotic supplement is a much more natural way of getting the good bacteria you need than storebought yogurt. If you can find an organic, whole milk, plain yogurt, I would say go for it a few months from now. For now, it probably isn't a good idea to introduce any dairy. You're still healing.

I would agree, though I'm late to this thread. I had given up all dairy except butter months before going gluten-free. About a month or so ago I tried some sheep's milk feta from Greece, and it seemed fine. Then I tried some Danish havarti, also seems fine. So that I could have a little more variety, I also wanted to try some yogurt, but all of the ones I found, even the organic ones that have fruit added also have 'natural flavors'. I'm avoiding all 'natural flavors' as though it says 'MSG' instead. Even though I had to get a larger container, I got some Nancy's whole milk plain organic yogurt and figured I'd add my own fruit. I just tried a little bit last night with some apple, and I think it's ok but I'm going to try it at least a couple more times to be sure.

I also take a probiotic supplement, which has been helpful.

Edit: It looks like you were posting a reply at the same time I was! Maybe it'll be helpful later...

It's hell being patient isn't it?

I, personally, am NO patient patient. <_<:lol: I have to "self-talk" all the time and remind myself to chill about all this.

I want to be 100% NOW, dammit, but it just does not happen that way.

I'm looking at years to be THERE. Doc says "Sorry, but that's what it takes. Time."

I look at where I am NOW and see healing happens!!

And that's just me. Does not mean it's going to take that long for you. :)

You guys probably know my expression by now, don't you?

"It just IS what it is....until it ISN'T."

Nobody likes that, but IH speaks da truth.

The probiotic caps will enable you to add new foods to your list faster & we know you want to add foods! It's hell being patient isn't it?

BTW, I rather like the term sweet water fish. Sounds yummier than saying fresh water fish. This coming from a person who has a great dislike for eating fish, excepting shrimp & lobster, which are crustaceans anyway.

Faster is always better yes :-)

Sweet water fish is what swedes call it :-D Didn't you say you had Scandinavian ancestors or was it another person?

You've been gluten-free for the same amount of time as squirmingitch.. Let us know how it goes with the yogurt!

I'm not exactly sure if this could work for you (and I haven't read all the replies..), Dani... but one of my favorite snacks is apple with different things on it. Adding a little lemon is pretty tasty.. or baked in cinnamon and sugar or brown sugar (like an apple crisp without the top), or peanut butter or other nut butters have been hits over here.

If you can do chocolate, we've enjoyed chocolate covered banana, too. :)

I'm blanking on all the different treats we've tried... :rolleyes:

I was gonna say that you can learn to love fish because it's in your blood, but that's not gonna fly :-)

LOL! The reason I dislike fish is b/c I grew up on the river (salt water) & we were not rich so fishing provided a LOT of food for our family as it did many other families in the area. So we ate fish about 5 nights a week. I wasn't crazy about it in the first place but eating it that often kind of turned me off. I will eat select fish --- snook -- which very few people will have heard of & are not sold; you have to catch them with a pole otherwise it's illegal & I will eat red snapper but I distrust fish in the stores -- it doesn't look fresh to me.

That's a fair enough reason :-) If anything your story has made you more selectively "posh" with your fish ;-)

Perhaps it's a good thing because almonds seem to be high on sals which means it'll make me itch. Dates are also high on sals, but it might be worth it to see if I can tolerate just one date a day, because they contain soooo many vitamins!

You are so right, family and friends don't want to hear about it.. it isn't something that excites them haha :-) WHenever I talk to my husband about this I see a look on his face: Oh no, here she goes! I don't get it, because he should be thrilled that we at last know what the deal is. We used to think that we couldn't have children without extreme measures and now that has disappeared :-)

I can't stop stressing how glad and happy I am to have people to talk to about this. I am trying to be active with other people's topics but I don't think I'm good at solving problems as well as I am in finding them! I just wish we live closer and could meat regularly like IrishHeart pointed.

Yeah...but the wonderful thing is ALL the NEW FRIENDS we have from all over the world!

I'm in california,some of us are in florida,texas,ohio,missouri,chicogo,NewYork,Canada,Astralia,Ireland,England,Germany and your in sweden! WOW!And we can talk all we want! If you want to talk more personally with anyone in perticular...send a personal message, if you need help with that or navigating your profile...just ask!

And yes...you would think our Hubbys would be thrilled at all our new knowladge and discoveries...but after a while...no! Personaly we thought I had Multiple scolrosis(MS)

for years...I had all the symtoms(like 97 out of 100)! But he RUNS if I start talking about it NOW! Yes personal message is fun... and you can just talk, about whatever...without everyone reading if you want, but having everyone two cents is great fun too! Its a great way to meet people you haven't talked to yet! and if you REALLY gety along with someone FRIEND them!

It's ALL good...and we're all in the same LEAKY boat! HaHaHA! :D:rolleyes:

Like i've said before...I've learned more from this site and these wonderful compasinate people than any Doctor! Except how to spell maybe...funny thing is the spelling gets better the less glutened I am...LOL...I can tell if I've been glutened...I cant remember how to spell things! :ph34r: ...How wierd is that!Anyway...can you explain what the term "SALS" is...I never did an elimination diet...I've been pretty much on my own...DR.s no help!The doctor who dx me is a specialist and too expensive...I have no insurance!My regularDoc isn't THAT helpful..but he isgoing to doa bloodtest on metosee wher I'm lacking noutrishion wise...I'm having...ISSUES!!!

Cougie what a sweet post!

I also can't spell when I'm glutened :-O Actually I noticed that I tend to become slightly dyslexic when I'm foggy from gluten, too! It's not weird at all :-) Well, maybe we're all weird which makes this place even more interesting! Sals (salicylates) are found in a lot of natural foods like fruits and veggies, as well as processed foods. They're some sortof immunity hormones. Here is a page on sals: http://salicylatesensitivity.com/info1/

Thinking you have MS is a terrible thing, I can imagine how relieved you were when you found out it wasn't your case :-)

I call that "thyroid brain" or ai brain.

Thyroid supplaments helped within days.

Unfortunately it still comes back from time to time...

:lol::lol::lol: Aww, I so relate to this. Or when you go upstairs only to realize you've forgotten what you went up there for. Then halfway down the steps you remember, go back up and get it, but then drop it 5 times before you actually are able to pick it up.

My father (who might have gluten problems but is in denial) is famous for this. At one point he called a pitcher a "clear pourer." :lol:
