Good food recs



  • Hey all
     
    Been having serious problems with the body - chronic fatigue, insomnia, gut/intestine issues, slow healing, super low blood pressure (95/65) shingles blah blah blah, so went and saw a specialist who did tests, and yep lots to do. Have to try and rebuild immune system, but that is the easy part. I have to now go dairy, wheat and gluten free. sobs
     
    Anyone have any recs for food that doesn't taste like shit? I found an ice cream (Lite Licks) which is dairy, wheat and gluten free, and while not on the same planet as Kapiti, it's not chopped liver. Was looking at some stuff in the supermarket, bloody hell its expensive, so I want it to be pretty fucking delicious.
     
    Thanks

    I'd go with Virgil's idea.
    Cutting everything out or blaming what is usually 'normal' food for your problems shouldn't be the answer. Sounds to a quack like me that you have been on a regime of exercise and eating that has thrown your system into imbalance. Eating processed foods just because they are Gluten free ot dairy free isn't going to help you. Get onto a well balanced diet avoiding harsh (highly acidic, fatty, sugary etc) and you'll most likely come right (unless your doc has confirmed you have a proper gluten/dairy intolerance not just a current one because you are sensitive at the moment)
    Avoid the bad shit, eat some real yoghurt and a good balance of protein, carbs and veg then slowly re-introduce treats.
     
    NB: I do realise you have a penchant for junk food

    This scarily does make sense. I've never had any problems with food in the past in terms of allergies, but I've had a HUGE amount of stress in the last few years, so maybe I just hit a big wall, and when everything is back on the level I can ease off on restrictions again. (They tested my saliva for PH level, it was 6.3...)

    Mrs V was the same, shes only discovered in the past couple years how badly Dairy and Gluten effects her (and by her i mean our family...)

    Harsh but fair.

    When my sister was bodybuilding, the last few weeks of nothing but chicken breast and broccoli, then water deprivation, I would avoid her like the plague due to the level of sheer evil. Same for those who have to cut down on their caffeine intake. Horror.



  • Fresh vege and fruit too if can handle the sugars (natural but still)
    Quality cuts of meat
    Fresh tastes good!

    You think thats bad, the Mrs does a bit of baking for her and our girls. Does she use 'flour' and 'sugar'? Noooooo she uses dates, and coconut and that 'stuff'...



  • Lol, like the people who use tofu bacon. A crime against the stomach and mind.
     
    My youngest niece (3) is gluten intolerant, and eggs, comes out in terrible rashes. I think her first spoken phrase was 'is this gluten free?' poor mite.



  • are lactose, nut allergies, gluten etc issues a modern day thing with people cutting out sugar-laden/cancer causing/fat infused this and that, that bodies then do actually become intloerant to different things as opposed to a balanced diet keeping everything in harmony?

    Normally when people have an intolerance, rather than an allergy, you are advised to cut food groups for a period of time and then gradually reintroduce them to see what happens.  What are you by the way, FODMAP?
     
    My better half has similar sounding symtoms.  She has been wheat free for nearly 20 years and has had to swear off a few other food groups due to IBS. Try using almond milk instead of dairy.  Rice Flour instead of Wheat Flour.  I can bake quite well with that type of substitution.  Can make pancakes, muffins, cakes etc.  Its easier to make it yourself than think you are going to buy it.
