I thought of this subject while eating supper last night. I had a bulb of fennel. Fennel just makes me feel good when I eat it. I really like the light licorice taste. I found it at the produce department in my local coop.

I also feel good when I eat salmon or beans. :D

I like honey off a spoon. It's my treat. Also fresh berries with yogurt.

I really get a lift from a banana in the morning. (I never really liked bananas all that much, but I really enjoy them now.)

That sounds delicious! What brand of honey do you buy?

I like watermelon with a little sugar sprinkled on top. Tastes like candy. I also love sweet potatoes and kale chips!

The best honey is local honey. They say if you eat honey produced by local bees, you are helping your immune system by taking in something made from the pollen that you come into contact with every day, and that if you are allergic to any of those pollens, the honey can help reduce those allergies.

I've always had problems with honey. I don't know why. I AM allergic to bee stings, but I doubt very much that that would extend to honey. All I know is that if I even smell honey, it feels like someone just put plastic wrap over my nose and mouth. I find it very hard to inhale at all.

That is scary. I would stay far away from honey if I had a reaction like that. Thats how I get with bananas. It has something to do with latex which I am very allergic to. Last time I had one, I couldn't breathe. I will look for some local honey. Thanks. :)

Sounds yummy, but I have hypoglycemia and can't have sweets. I like fruit, but I even must be careful with that. What else?

I had problems with a lot of kinds of honey. The one I get is expensive, but I can eat it without getting sick. It's called rare hawaian organic white honey.

Good question!

Probably Actimel (probiotic drink) is my number one feel good food. Also bananas as mentioned above. My one cup of coffee a day helps to combat the brain fog and gives me a rare energy boost.

    • I would suggest a certified gluten free soy sauce, just to be safe.  Test that and if you react, you'll be able to rule out a gluten reaction from La Choy.  
    • I second cycling lady here, you should not go gluten free unless your doctor confirms you have celiac disease via the blood test and a biopsy. You need to be eating gluten for the testing to be accurate so a 30 day trial based on the gene is a REALLY bad idea, getting back on gluten for the testing is a nightmare once out of your system. Also going gluten free, what are you eating? If your eating just a bunch of gluten-free foods that are processed like the pre made breads, foods etc. your on the wrong path. Those are normally non enriched and more like junk food/comfort food. You need to eat a whole foods diet, of various greens, meats, nuts, seeds, (fruit if you can have it and sweet potatoes). etc. Doing this will boost your healing and you and introduce some of those processed foods later on sometimes. If you have celiac disease then your intestines are probably damaged and you will need to supplement some nutrients, we all have common ones like magnesium, iron, b-vitamins, folate, potassium, D etc. and you should talk to a good doctor about what your missing. The whole out of it things sounds like b-vitamins to me. Another point is going gluten free, you have to be careful for CC if your a celiac, after removing gluten re exposure to gluten makes your symptoms MUCH worse, and the tend to change and evolve in addition. Be sure to check the Newbie 101, your pretty much have to replace most of your cookware, condiments, etc. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Do you still consume gluten and/or dairy? If so, I highly recommend that you eliminate both entirely. That includes anything with the ingredients; whey powder, casein, "lactose free" can be misleading as well. I also recommend taking a good probiotic regularly.  http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2016/03/01/10-best-probiotics-for-depression-anxiety-gut-brain-axis-modification/  I use Garden of Life brand for Mood. I buy it in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods. I also recommend double doses of B vitamin for a stint. However, you should have a full work up done by a neurologist, if you haven't already. Assuming everything comes  back negative then I highly recommend trying these few things.  I hope you can find answers and start feeling healthy again.
    • I suggest researching Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or EOE.   http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681  Also, Benadryl crosses the blood brain barrier and there have been long-term complications.  Talk to your doctor about using  another antihistamine.  If your reactions have been anaphylactic, you should have an epi pen.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Welcome!   Yikes, first I would suggest that you consider a new doctor.  Your doctor gave you some pretty bad advice biased on your posting.   The celiac gene is common.  Some 30% or more of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  Are you sure it was not an antibodies test?  Telling you to go gluten free for a 30 day trial is another huge error.  Often they takes months to years for a celiac to recover.  A celiac is diagosed by blood tests and small intestinal biopsies obtained via an endoscopy.  There are times when an endoscopy is skipped because if financial reasons, too ill or long wait times.   Learn more at the University of Chicago's celiac website which is very informative and well-recognized.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
