I am lactose intolerant as well as having both gluten and nut sensitivities. I also dislike coconut as a flavoring so most coconut and nut based milks are a problem for me. On the occasions that I drink/use dairy, I will use Lactaid, use Lactaid tablets, eat gluten free yogurt, etc. This has worked well for me. I have discovered that Carnation powdered milk is gluten free and lasts longer than the fresh milk (for me at least) so I have been using that instead of fresh milk.
How are you with beans, and apples? I have a vegan recipe for bread that is about like corn bread. It uses garbanzo and fava bean flour and apple sauce as a binder instead of eggs if I recall. I use it to make the bread for thanksgiving dressing now days. I think I posed it in the recipe section somewhere.
Have you tried making chicken or beef bone broth? Very good healing food for the stomach. Lot's of blogs online with instructions and even the process itself can be quite fun.
Try treating these first 6 months on the diet as a special phase to kick start your body into healing. Keep a food diary and note symptoms and reactions. Once you've done some healing you may want to try reintroducing some foods to see if you can now tolerate them. There are lots of accounts on here from people who were in your position who have been able to add more foods once they've had sufficient time without gluten.
Ennis can probably help with some substitute ingredients. You can search online as well ie: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/search/recipes?query=#path=diet/dairy-free/diet/142/diet/143 some of those may work?
I have a similar problem. I feel like a different person these days, as if something broke inside me and I'm no longer as productive or goal oriented I'd be very interested in seeing if the adderall works if you decide to go with it.
No it sounds interesting. I may give that a try I think I have some cocoa and I'm sure I can find hemp protein powder over here.
