Nothing To Eat

One of the best parts of going gluten free for me was figuring out that dairy wasn't the problem, and that I could have milk in my coffee again! Ice cream! Wooooo!

For the sake of health and feeling my very best I've gone nearly vegan, except for the dairy. But lately I noticed that my acne has gotten worse and worse despite the much improved diet. Some bloating has returned. And I'm thinking perhaps the dairy is the cause of all this. I gorged on my favorite ice cream yesterday in preparation for going dairy free today. Sigh. I'm paying for it, too, and so is everyone within 40 feet of me (oh, pardon me! There I go again!).

I'm past all the initial frustration of gluten free. Positive thinking about it all is a way of life now, darn it.

But occasionally, I think that eventually I'll be living on nothing but carrots and the occasional sprig of parsley. Until I turn orange and develop an unsightly parsley allergy that makes my hair fall out and in the end I'm taking nothing but liquid vitamins which give me a mild rash and drinking double-filtered rain water that can only be collected in a special titanium rain barrel, and that will be as good as it gets, bald and splotchy-itchy.

Well, at least I don't have a nut allergy. Yet.

It can all be a bit overwhelming can't it?

I'm new to the gluten-free diet and still learning what's ok and what's not.

I think you can put a few green beans on the plate with your carrot and be safe? ;) I'm just teasing you, and hope you can keep a sense of humor going? I understand your frustration, but we gotta do what we gotta do right?

Maybe if you eliminate dairy for a while you can try again later?

Good luck!

Take a break from the dairy for a while and see if that helps. You may be able to go back to it after some time. There are a lot of good alternatives out there that taste just as good, especially in regards to ice cream. :)

I had a lot of trouble with dairy at first, so I went dairy free for about a year. Now I'm eating cheese and some ice cream again without issues.

Could be dairy, could be ??? Try to avoid it for awhile and then re-introduce, see if it really is the culprit. It could be corn or soy too. Being a vegan try not to fill up on soy. Look for healthy sources of protiens like quinoa, beans, nuts, etc. There are gluten free, soy free, dairy free ice creams out there. Or make your own. Other ideas for dairy free vegan milk like products are almond milk, hemp milk, coconut milk, etc. Also, there is a awesome protien shake out there made from peas. It's quite good and you could mix it with your fav fruit or any nut butter. It's kinda creamy like a milk shake and it doesn't even resemble a pea taste.

Best of luck!! B)

LOLOL too funny!! :D

i know how you feel. i added back in dairy but i don't eat it every day. i splurged on 1/4 cup of ice cream yesterday and today i'm so tired i can't get out of my own way. so it doesn't affect my digestion too much anymore but i'm definitely better off with out it.

sign me up for the rain-barrel hahaha :)

Thank you for all the funny replies. I'm glad you all noticed my sense of humor... yes, still keeping the humor going.

And after several days of dairy free, I haven't had a single new bump. That is pretty thrilling.

It's a blessing to not have "silent" food problems, it really is. When you know that eating something is going to do something REALLY REALLY BAD to you, it's not so tempting.

Thanks also for the ideas! I live in the middle east, and my food choices are VERY small here. I'm thrilled to see broccoli that is fresh & not rotten (and nobody here knows there's another type of lettuce besides Romaine! Shhhhh! It's a secret!) :lol: but when I leave for the month of August, I will be searching the freezer section for some dairy-free, gluten-free ice cream! Wooo!

Keep at it
