Eating Paleo Diet

This diet has been great for me. I feel so much better and haven't had the big D for over a week. What a nice change.I also went out of town and didn't have to stop to find bathrooms. I could actually enjoy the trip.

I wanted to know if there is any type of protien drink that I could use for breakfast. I was not sure if that was even possible since I have eliminated almost everything they are made from out of my diet. If this isn't a choice, what do you recommend for breakfast? I usually eat lost of fruit, but wanted more protien without actually having to cook a form of protien early in the morning.

My friend is using the Nature's Plus Spiru-terin chocolate protien drink. He also uses lactose free milk. I called and this is gluten free, but obviously is made with soy. What is non-GMO soy(non-genetically modified)? Is this any worse or better? I am not sure I want to even take a risk of trying this. He loves it though....but obviously his guts are more forgivng than mine.

I would like any suggestions. I also wanted to share one of my favorite chicken salads I have been eating lately. I love it and is very filling yet not too heavy.

Green spinach leafs

cubed grilled chicken (season to liking)

crasins

sliced apples into small pieces

Newman's Own ceasear dressing.

I don't know exactly what you are allowed on the Paleo diet, but I can't have any dairy or soy so I've been making a protein smoothie with powdered egg whites (Bob's Red Mill has some, and I found another brand at Whole Foods), a little nut butter (almond currently), a little stevia, a tiny bit of frozen fruit (usually something like peaches), and ice cubes.

The premise of the paleo diet is whole foods the majority of the time, with the exception of recovery drinks for endurance athletes. It also limits soy and dairy.

I usually crack 3 med eggs on a skillet in the morning while I am fixing my lunch. Flip and then eat. It really only takes about 5 min. My husband cannot get up in enough time to cook in the am, so he usually eats sliced ham or left over chicken (I personally cannot stomach chicken that early)

There are some people who just have trouble stomach food in the am. If a shake is the only option, then egg white protien powder with fruit blended would be the next best thing. There is a brand called Now available at Whole Foods that is good. It doesn't have a taste really, so it will go with whatever you put in it. (I use it post work-out with dextrose and cocoa)

How about buying some good sausages and just microwaving one in the morning? Hardly counts as cooking. I get some from Trader Joe's, chicken/turkey/garlic sausage. Short and sweet ingredient list.

It's hard to stay paleo unless you want to consume uncooked or powdered eggs in a smoothie. To me, cleaning up the blender is more work than microwaving a sausage.

I often eat poached eggs over sauteed greens or asparagus. You could blanch some asparagus and sautee it off with some onion or garlic or something, then refer it; AND boil some eggs. Cooked bacon (gluten-free obviously and uncured) tastes good cold the next day as well. That might work for not having to cook in the a.m.

Thanks for all the good suggestions. I think I might need to get up a little earlier or make my breakfast the night before.

I notice that the fewer grains (of any kind) I eat, the better I feel--I don't do a strick paleo diet, but I kinda follow it. For breakfast, I hard boil about a dozen eggs on the weekend, then during the week, I grab a couple of hard boiled eggs and a handful of cherry tomatoes for a super quick, no fuss breakfast. I also sometimes eat a handful of mixed nuts, and a handful of raisins or dried cherries for breakfast. I am always on the run! In the kosher foods section of your grocery store, you can sometimes find macaroons made with no flour--yum! That's as close to a paleo dessert as I can come. Or, nuts drizzled with honey would be paleo, too, right?

Yes, nuts and honey are Paleo. I am not the biggest honey fan, so I use agave necter alot. YUMMY.

As for the sausages, Super Target carries a brand-I think it is Apple Farms (I will double check when I get home) that is fully cooked, gluten-free and soy free. They make breakfast links that are smaller and larger sausage and I eat a lot of those.

I learned awhile back-it only takes me about 30 min. to get dressed in the morning, but I need an hour so I can prepare my breakfast and food for the day.

It takes me 45 minutes in the winter to make my brekkers -- I have to have potato or something like that to fill me up and keep me warm in the cold months. The trick for me is, then I have to do the doodles...but it's time to leave for school. ARG - I hate morning classes!

This quarter I have a class called "walking" (i go to a hippy college) and once a week we go on three hour walks. Not a good scenario for finding that one needs a facility. Maybe I should've gone with accounting or something. :D

Can you eat beans? Try this yummy dip rolled up in lettuce leaves or eaten right out of the bowl with a spoon:

1 can organic prepared beans (ingredients: beans, salt, water)

1/2 avocado (optional)

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

few shakes dried thyme

few shakes dried sage

about 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

optional: about 5 tablespoons gluten free vinegar (balsamic or regular)

Throw it all into the blender or chopper and chop until the consistency of peanut butter (smoothy or crunchy)

That's it. Enjoy. You can leave out the avocado if you don't like them. You can also add about a tablespoon of chopped onion if you like.

If you are really adventerous....add about 7 roasted almonds to the mix.

Enjoy!

    • I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA.  I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests.  They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below.   I just wanted to warn everyone away from them.  They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
