I have been gluten-free for almost two years - great results (my weight is steady, skin cleared up, migraines stopped, gas/bloating stopped, etc). I was still having some symptoms that drove me nuts...brain fog, oily face, dandruff, moody...so I went mostly grain/sugar free as well. That definitely helps - much harder to stick to since I'm a snacker. When I behave myself, I eat eggs for breakfast, protein/veggie for lunch and then larger portion of protein/veggie for dinner. My problem is snacking - I have been very hungry lately and have been getting dizzy and lightheaded (been wondering if I have a blood sugar problem - has always been borderline low since teen years). I've been snacking on cheese as a protein source. However, now my sinuses are acting up, I've had a constant headache for two weeks that sometimes gets unbearable (back of head at the base of skull), and I'm nauseous quite a bit. Don't know what's going on and I'm afraid it's the dairy. I was eating greek yogurt for breakfast again because I got bored with eggs...I've cut that out again, but don't know what to do about snacks. Besides nuts, what can I have that doesn't contain grains/sugar? I don't want to lose dairy forever, so I'm hoping that giving it up for a short time will allow me to keep it in moderation later. Thanks everybody!

I've gotten addicted to the fried peas from nuts.com -- they satisfy my need for a crunchy snack when I'm sick of raw veggies. Fried edamame works along the same lines.

Hummus, nut butters, tuna salad, chicken salad or lettuce wraps with a couple of slices of ham/turkey or any other lunch meat with roasted red peppers, onions and a little cilantro mayo. Just a few suggestions that I ate when I was doing South beach.

When you say sugar free - do you eat fruit, agave, honey? There are many Paleo recipes for muffins made with coconut or almond flour. I use bananas, apples or pumpkin in mine with a small amount of agave.

For small snacks I tote along a piece of chicken, hard boiled eggs, banana, apple slices, small container of almond butter, slightly blanched asparagus or carrots (I don't like them raw) or paleo muffins.

Yup, sounds like dairy. I had the same symptoms (sinus and balance issues) and they mostly cleared up after cutting out dairy. For me the problem is casein. I can't eat goat or sheep's milk either.

Non-dairy/grain-free snacks do sound tricky, but yeah, nuts, some fruit maybe? (those lettuce and chicken wraps sound tasty!) yeah, are fruit sugars and honey ok?

Also, Almond milk is a great substitute for most things. Not so easy in cooking, but great in coffee, etc.

good luck!

I don't necessarily have a snack suggestion, except maybe rice cakes with butter, which is my only snack food recently. Not grain free though....

I did want to suggest that it's possible the issue you're having may not be dairy per se, but it may be the additives to the yogurt. Since I'm sensitive to a lot of additives, the only yogurt I could find without them is plain yogurt, to which I've been adding homemade applesauce. I don't eat it frequently, however, and in order to just test it I had to buy a large container since it's all they had that didn't have the other stuff. The additives I wanted to avoid, in the case of yogurt, is 'natural flavors' and carageenan.

Just so you can be on the look out if or when you re-test dairy after a while.

    • Funny you should mention this, I got a offer for some free ones from that company and just turned it down. The only gluten free products from the company are a 2 lines of dedicated nut type bars. The majority of their bars actually contain either barley (gluten grain) like the biscuits etc. Or whole grain wheat like many of their crunchy and nut and oat bars.   10% of people with celiac can also not tolerate oats btw. If your looking for a good bar many swear by Kind bars for quick nut snack bars. I myself prefer low carb dairy free protein bars like Julian Bakery (acquired taste) and Bhu Foods. If you insist on eating oats I might suggest looking into a company that is dedicated I used to use gluten-free harvest in my bakery, the family that started it has celiac  running in their family. http://www.glutenfreeoats.com/gluten-free-oatmeal/
    • There has been a recent recall of veggies because of listeria risk. Here is the FDA list of recalled items in the US and Canada https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm581389.htm
    • I asked for their two products yesterday,onion and garlic.Onion powder's package doesnt have starch or wheat on ingredient list but garlic powder has corn starch . I dont have any intolerance to corn by the way. They told me they add starch to two of their products so they are not gluten free. I dont understand why they would put on corn starch on list if it contains wheat starch.I sent another mail to them.  I had nausea last night and this morning but im not sure if it is because of powder or something else.  
    • Well endoscopy done this morning. Said that all looked normal no sign of celiac seen normal duodenal cap and preserved villi. but need to wait for biopsies. Report stated  mild antral gastritis with erythema found  but non specific. Seems like they took a lot of Biopsies. Report stated they took them from lower 3rd and middle 3rd of oesophagus,  the antrum of stomach and area in bulb and 1st,2nd and 3rd part of duodenum. So will wait and see two other children in recovery with us had visible damage on their scope so were told they have celiac disease. Dr review clinic not for two weeks. Thanks for everyone for listening we just want some answers now for her increasing fatigue. But maybe it's not celiac after all.     
    • Look at carreggenan. I am a super sensitive Celiac and have the same auto immune reaction to anything made with seaweed, “the wheat of the sea”, such as MSG, carrageenan, agar and sodium alginate. The food industry is putting it in everything, even so called Misbranded gluten free foods. Even some coconut milk brands now are using it as are nut milks. It is a cheap emulsifier, so we do not have to shake things up! How about shaking up my whole body from it! You may have an iron defiency anemia not being treated or tested. Cookbook doctors treat numbers not patients clinical presentation. I have fired five doctors in eight years for stupidity and dangerous lack of clinical acumen which could have killed me. Do not be afraid to ask questions and confront doctors, you are after all the customer paying for their services.  Eat clean, meaning preparing your own foods. Stay out of restaurants! Gluten free is a joke in most restaurants if you are a celiac. And will cost you weeks of illness. Hang in there. Make bone broth, it has super vitamins and minerals and loaded with pre and probiotics. Go to Dr. Axe’s site. I only do chicken made with feet. I am allergic to beef since being bitten by a deer tick in 2011 and getting Chronic Lyme disease. The chicken feet bone broth is also loaded with calcium and is yummy. Takes a little work, but is well worth it. 😊
