I am day 5 of a metabolic detox and for the next three days can only eat the following foods:

brocolli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, brussels sprout, red and green lettuce, romaine, spinich, endive, apples and pears (whole or juiced). Can anyone help me with ideas with just these ingredients?

I think this might be a boring and long 3 days, please give me some ideas if you have any.

Are you allowed any salt or oil at all? Most of those ingredients would tear up my insides if I ate them raw but they won't have much flavor if cooked without any seasoning and without an aromatic veggie like garlic, onions or carrots. You could just throuw a bunch of veggies in the slow cooker, roast them in the oven or get some of those microwave steamer bags and steam them. Of you could make a lot of juices to drink with veggies and apples if you have a juicer.

When I saw Kale the first thign that came to mind was Kale chips but those call for oil and salt. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-Kale-Chips/Detail.aspx

Yea, no oil at all had to eliminate those all out yesterday. Doesn't say anything about salt.

It is likely to be boring but you could do a soup of sorts using the veggies. Since you have been recently diagnosed celiac your digestive system may still be quite sensitive and you might want to make sure your veggies and fruits are well cooked so they may be easier to digest. You may be in for a rough few days as many of your allowed items are a bit hard to digest. I hope this regime helps you rather than making you feel worse.

I'm feeling real weak today from this diet and at my worst, I am so jonsing for even just a rice cracker at this point. This is horrible.

I can not even believe how weak I am today and cold. I have our pellet stove on and turned the furnace on and even resorted to a small electric heater on high in my room, this is crazy. Also having the worst pain ever in my right leg, which I have had total knee replacement in, I can barely walk on it.

The fast is getting to me...

Then stop for now as this is doing you more harm than good. Have a plain broiled chicken breast and some rice or a baked potato and a bland veggie.

In addition to the stress this fast is doing to you it is likely you are also going through withdrawl from the gluten. You need your strength right now.

I wouldn't be able to do that detox diet. Those are were the hardest vegetables for me to digest early in my recovery. I was only able to tolerate protein in small amounts when my insides were a mess. I agree with Ravenwood, you probably should stop.

    • I can not help you with a cheaper price (google it), but if you have celiac disease, I would make sure the alternative gluten free flours are not milled with gluten flours by calling the manufacturer.    I personally make sure that my gluten-free flours are certified gluten free.  I do not worry about a can of tomatoes.  Odds are the contents are just tomatoes and have not been exposed to gluten during the manufacturing process.   Be careful about buying from open bins in a store.  Chances for cross contamination are great!  We had a member here who smartly requested access to unopened bags each time she went into a store and bypassed the open bins.  The store was really nice about it.    
    • I think that your villi are intact.  So, normally that would mean no evidence of celiac disease.  But Victoria is right, that they should have run a celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  Why?  The small intestine is vast.  If spread out, it is larger than a tennis court!  The biopsies may not have captured the damaged areas. Consider asking your doctor for a celiac blood test and continue to eat gluten daily until the blood draw or better yet, until you get the test results.  A negative on the blood test will really help rule out celiac disease. A small price to pay for piece of mind.   i hope you feel better soon!  
    • Yes, it is the same test. When used in conjunction with  celiac testing, it verifies that the celiac IgA  test results are valid.  Used alone (not running the celiac tests), if  the Immunoglobulin A result is above or below range....then you are dealing with another set of problems.  For example, my result was above range.  This can be attributed to my having more than one autoimmune disorder and at the same time, it validated the IgA celiac test results.  
    • Grass fed is just the natural, traditional way of cattle eating -- eating grass on the range.  People now pay a higher price for this kind of meat.  It is a leaner meat because cattle do a lot of walking around to graze.    Cattle,  in feed lots or a combination, fatten up fast on a grain diet (e.g. Corn, sit, etc.), plus, we seem to be running out of land and cowboys!  
    • The waiting is very difficult. in the meantime, it's time to start reading the newbie thread and see what you can start doing, as there is nothing wrong with trying a gluten-free diet even if you are not diagnosed with celiac. You could have non celiac gluten intolerance. No way to know if eliminating gluten will help until you try. Don't expect immediate results. Healing takes time. But you might experience relief from the bloating within a few days, personally I had horrible abdominal pain which disappeared within a week. Everyone's bodies are different!
