Primal/paleo But No Nuts?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi

I am loving the look of primal/paleo, and I know when I did Atkins years ago it was great.

However - my son has a severe nut allergy and we can't have them in the house.

I tried Atkins again recently, but struggled without nuts for snacks.

I can't have too much fruit, or any seseme either.

Can anyone suggest easy to carry snacks?

Many thanks

Due to an additional condition I was diagnosed with after celiac I am seed and nut free. I'm actually tyramine free but these are both included. Additionally I'm soy free so at first I spent the first few days convinced I would starve to death.

First, an easy and no sacrifice option. If it doesn't matter what you eat you could keep Kind bars or Larabars in your desk at work and just be sure you practice handwashing and if necessary brush your teeth or whatever before you leave. Not sure if that's an option for you but you'd be able to have nuts, it's a quick and great snack and they'd never be in the house.

There isn't much in the way of grab and go snacks I can have anymore but I do keep fruit snacks or fruit leather handy. Costco usually has huge boxes of super awesome fruit leather for a reasonable price. My husband prefers fruit snacks and they are cheaper so it's what we more commonly have on hand. We keep fresh vegetables washed and ready to snack on available 100% of the time. Again, Costco to the rescue, I can get a 5 pound bag of organic, washed and ready to eat baby carrots for $5. I throw together some yogurt tiziki dipping sauce to keep on hand also. Instead of fatty sour cream we're shoveling probiotics and cucumbers in our face with our veggies. I also like to keep large (huge) containers of grape tomoatoes, the yellow ones. Nature's candy.

Popcorn can be healthy. It isn't the way I like it but in theory it's a great healthy snack. If you aren't dairy free I am a huge fan if Laughing Cow cheese wedges with rice crackers. You wouldn't be able to buy the huge huge boxes of Crunchmaster at Costco because half are sesame (unless you can pawn those off on the other half of the house) but half are parmesan, both are delicious. Really, any good cracker or whatever. Or just the cheese! Or string cheese with fruit. I know you said not too much fruit but you could split an apple with your son and have some sliced cheddar or string cheese. Always a favorite here. I also do a lot of cottage cheese and fruit, heavy on the dairy light on the fruit for you I suppose. Actually, I usually just make that a meal and add flax.

Anywho, that's just some ideas of what we do around here. I keep steering my husband more and more away from his fatty diet to more and more healthy stuff. He says I'm turning him into a hippie. :lol:

That's great, thanks

I feel a bit like I'm living on cheese some days! Fingers crossed I dont turn out intolerant...

I need to be a bit more prepared I think.

Hippie is good, in my view. I have yet to convince my family about better eating. Though my husband did say he was jealous of my breakfast of rice avocado chicken and gluten-free soy sauce. Maybe eventually...

I'm on the primal diet, go to work 9-5, and then school from 6-10pm. So I've been trying to live on primal snacks since I dont trust my school's cafeteria and obviously cant cook a steak in my classroom. Besides nuts, I always carry around with me some unsalted sunflower seeds, gluten free beef jerky, cheese, yogurt (I know its not primal, but a girl's gotta eat!), carrots, and they sell little snack packs of the dried cranberries (Craisins) that really come in handy. It definitely holds me over until I get home! Best of luck!

    • My question is, how long does it take for the anxiety to fade? My anxiety is out of this world. It's horrendous. I have health anxiety and it's real, and it's bad. I thought going gluten-free would help me and I think it's actually gotten worse. But I don't think that's from being gluten-free. I think having an AI disorder panicked me. I've been on the diet 6 months and it's going well for the most part, but like I said, the anxiety is no better. Does that just take a really long time?
    • Thank y'all for the info! His doc said he may not have celiac bc he doesn't look the part whatever that means I guess bc he's a big boy lol but he did the panel anyways And said he'll prob get false neg even if he has gluten issues . He also testing for b12 iron and his vit d, and inflammation. We already know his vit D is low he's been taking high amounts of D3 with magnesium for months now. Doc said could be possible MS but he had spinal tab a while back and physical test also nurve and muscle study and Nero said the results were perfect but he did have some white matter change in MRI but could be from head trauma he's had or high blood pressure or migraines . It's all too much to process sometimes. He's 26  But I would think bc his stomach issues have improved so much in the past weeks bc of going gluten free it makes me lean more towards gluten issues rather than MS wouldn't u think? 
    • Thanks  I didn't pay attention to how long ago this study came out and wasn't sure if anyone had any "recent" data or information. Plus, my retainer is a Hawley retainer and I think it's made of acrylic. I'm not sure that would even have gluten products in it. I'll keep wearing it.
    • My husband bought some McCormick's skillet sauce on Sunday and it says it's certified gluten free. We always use the gluten free seasoning and I've never had an issue. I've just noticed the last couple days that my tummy has been kinda funny and I can't really think of anything that I've eaten that would have caused it, so it may very well not be gluten. But I went to their website and checked out the ingredients and it lists worscestshire sauce as an ingredient. It also lists the ingredients in that and I don't see any malt - just distilled vinegar. But I haven't eaten worscestshire sauce since I was diagnosed because I thought it wasn't safe. But I trust McCormick and know they have a good reputation. Thoughts? Oh, and here's the link to the product.  https://www.mccormick.com/spices-and-flavors/cooking-sauces/skillet-sauces/fajita-skillet-sauce
    • First STAY on gluten til you are done testing, you need 12 weeks for blood test with it in your system and 2 weeks for hte follow up endoscope.  Second yes, if he has celiac then his intestines are damaged and he will not be getting all the nutrients his body needs, so even when off gluten you can have issues show up like this. These can be helped by supplementing I suggest a full B-vitamin regime, and magnesium myself, there are others he might be low in like iron, folate, potassium etc. You should probably see about having his levels checked and talking to a dietician about what me might need. I personally love this blend from liquid health called stress & energy and another one from them called neurological support that I take 1tbsp of each 3 times a day. Best part they are liquid so you just add them to tea, water, or juice. Another I might suggest is Doctors Best Magnesium or Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium Supplements. Doctors best is easier on the stomach while calm can cause gut issues and a laxative effect and it is suggest you start off with 1/4tsp doses and step it up from there to the full dose. I take 2-3 times the dose on this but we are all different in the levels we will need.
