It’s in the Blood

So, your girl is going dairy and gluten-free. May we have a moment of silence for the loss of pancakes?? Sad as it may seem, it is what my naturopath recently recommended. The gastro issues I have been having are being feed by an inordinate amount foods that make my tummy very sad. plus, it wants sugar, it really wants sugar.

What are the guidelines to going dairy and gluten-free? Does anyone know? In a recent trip to my local library I was only able to find cook books but no “how to”. Hello, where are my step-by-step instructions to life changes? I don’t know if I am particularly ready to give up avocado toast and ice cream.

Thankfully, there was a Complete Idiot’s Guide to Gluten-Free Eating a my library. In it, it gives details on what grains to look for in labels. I understand from my naturopath that he wants to delve into gut health so I better get reading.

On the other plate is dairy. My recent blood work showed surprising results for allergies to Cow’s milk and of all things, eggs. The doc stated that humans are the only species that drinks the milk of another species. Makes milk sound a bit gross now. It may take me a bit longer to let this one go. I do consume quite a bit of dairy during the day.

There is cheese on the eggs, ice cream, and sour cream with my Taco Tuesday! Not to mention the yogurt I just had for breakfast. OY! This is a very wicked plan to get me to eat more vegetables.

Where do I start? That is my question right now.  I recently asked my crew on Instagram for recommendations on books and sources. One mentioned a vegan site…they shoot meat eaters with carrots, don’t they?

    The good news is there’s books like Well Fed or her site, https://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/ that have amazing gluten and dairy free food ideas.

    https://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/ has great gluten free recipes, and several paleo ones, too. You can search her recipes by “diet” – aka, gluten and/or dairy free. and her recipe for Balsamic Pot Roast is aaaahhhh-mazing!

    https://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/ is also a wonderful site for gluten free ideas… again, mostly keto, but if you aren’t watching carbs, you can sub in the real stuff. 🙂

    I’d search out paleo web sites because most of those would fit the bill for you.
