I'm Such A Moron

So I've just glutened myself for the second day in a row. I really don't understand it either - it's coming from some Blue Diamond Almonds which I've been eating the entire time I've been gluten free and haven't a single issue with them until now.

Is it possible I've developed a sensitivity to them as well? I remember when I first started out they were one of my main sources of calories.

I'm really just at a loss and I know it couldn't be any other food since it's the only common food I've eaten each time I got sick. I guess it's possible they've changed they're manufacturing process? But I already looked online and nothing has changed from the time they were safe. I'm really at a loss here.

Our family eats them all the time (3 of are celiac, 1 is super sensitive) and have never reacted. Almonds are high in salicylates, perhaps that is what you are reacting to. Or maybe it is almonds in general? My celiac mom gets gluten-feeling from eating any almonds. Try another brand, or just steer clear of almonds for awhile and then try again.

You aren't a moron. The gluten-free diet is complicated in the beginning, and with all the weird stuff your body starts doing it can be hard to say what is withdrawal, what is reaction, and what is just your digestive system working out the kinks of your new diet!

Doesn't make you a moron. I sadly don't know what it could be, but I never had problems with cashews, and now after going gluten free (since February) my body changed and so did my reactions to foods I used to eat. I can't eat cashews any more. They make me go crazy with anger and anxiety along with other symptoms that remind of me of what it feels like to be glutened. Maybe it's the same thing for you?

You are not a moron. :)

That said, sorry you are not feeling well. But it is NOT because of gluten in the Blue Diamond almonds, I assure you. I eat them regularly, and if there were any gluten in them, I would be having trouble typing this message to you because my brain function would be impaired and I would be in the bathroom, doubled over in pain, crying my eyes out in despair.

Could be they are just not agreeing with you right now.

Skip them for a month and try them again later. Healing is an up and down road.

I ate Junior Mints like crazy when newly gluten-free. Guess what makes me sick now???

I can't figure it out since the factory is gluten-free. Happens with Andes Mints, too, which is made by Tootsie also.

Haven't reacted to anything else so just don't know...but I feel your pain.

I loved Junior Mints.

And did I mention I had to get raging D from eating them TWICE before I'd believe it???

Maybe that's my problem. Chocolate Rice Chex have been the love of my life for weeks now. My body is probably rejecting them now. Plain and Cinnamon are good with me though.

I can't eat them anymore either. I AM sensitive to sals (I found that out when I took some asperin) so I thought sals must be the problem, but I can eat other high sals foods so I don't know. Asperin has MUCH higher sals than most foods, and I know they are cumulative, but I can eat a ton of broccoli every day and never have a problem.

So I just switched to walnuts. I don't like them as much as almonds, but when I want something crunchy, they'll do.

Well there's your problem! Broccoli is super gas city! :P

P--don't you have a sals issue? Aren't peppermints high in sals? and don't sals cause stomach pain and D?

Maybe that's why? just thinking out loud with you. :)

Yes and no.

I can drink mint/lemongrass tea.

But I can't eat those mints now. I found something a while ago about how peppermint oil used in food manufacturing is a blend of lots of stuff...and a number of people have a problem with it.

So it may be the mint, but just processed mint oil?

Oddly enough I'm ok with my Weleda salt toothpaste (which is mint). But I'm not eating it, either.

Or, it could be some other mysterious ingredient. There isn't a healthy thing in either of those products :).

I've come to the (highly unscientific) conclusion after two years of a strict gluten-free/DF/SF regimen, that my body is just acting the way it was always designed to, before I unwittingly polluted and confused it with the seemingly innocent little gluten protein I bombarded it with for all those years. There are many gluten-free foods I regularly chowed down on before that I can't go near now, or have little tolerance for. It's just the way my body has evolved. I feel like I have a baby's system and I'm having to learn everything anew.

I can no longer eat any kind of stone fruit or derivative, that includes plums and almonds even out of the shell, where two years ago I didn't overtly feel any effect. In fact, it makes me feel so badly with non-gluten symptoms that I know my body is rejecting it, and when that happens, I know my system is much cleaner and purer than before. So maybe that's a blessing of sorts, and not a curse.

Were I a cave girl, I'd just stay away from the fruit of that tree!!!

I could have written these words myself, Kwylee.

I used to be able to eat and drink anything I damn well pleased.

Anything. Really.

Not anymore. <_<

If diarrhea is your problem, it may be TOO many almonds at once. They are high in Magnesium and nuts in general are suggested to conter constipation.
