Hi and welcome to the team. Sorry to hear about all your allergies. I would suggest seeing if you can get in to see a nutritionist, especially one who deals with gluten intolerance/celiacs and other food allergies. They would probably be the best guide in making sure you are getting all your nutrients and the best way to do so.

Welcome! Lots of good advise already. Note that if you are off gluten that long until you see the specialist, they will not be able to test you for Celiac Disease. The antibodies will be gone. It would be better if your family doctor could order the blood test now.

Hi and welcome to the team and there are some that they call grains but are really seeds and are better for you than grains. Like quinoa, buckwheat etc

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

There are lots of other grains besides wheat: quinoa, rice, gluten free oatmeal, and a whole slew of others. But even if you did follow your allergists advice and "to just eat veggies, meat, and fruit for a year or so to see you feel", I think you could definately be healthy with that. There are tons of fruits and veggies; think too about rutabega, sweet potatoes, beets, and many others. If you ate that way you could still be healthier than the average person if you avoid adding junk foods.

Live amazingly every day of your life, for you never know which one will be your last.

What nutrients are you worried about missing? Have you tried quinoa? It is great as a cereal or even as a flour for making muffins or banana bread. Sweet potatoes are great too as a base for dip (with black beans). Make a list of all the things you CAN have and make menus from there. That helped me to feel less deprived at first. (I avoid gluten, dairy, corn, and peanuts.)

Welcome to feeling better! It is worth the effort to watch what you are eating!

Depression is anger without the motivation.

I think depression runs rampant in society today because we are all so obsessed with making a living instead of living our lives.

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem...On your hopes you must lean...From your fears you have to wean yourself.

Hello all! I just wanted to drop in and introduce myself. I'm more of a lurker, but I might chime in from time to time. I was just diagnosed with a host of food allergies in addition to a high likelihood (waiting for the GI appt in 3 months!) celiac disease. Even if it comes back negative for the disease portion, I will probably be gluten free because I feel so much better without it in my life.

I'm also allergic to all nuts (except coconut, oddly), eggs, wheat, citrus, dairy (intolerance), and some fish. So, even the substitutes often used for gluten free cooking, like almond flour, are off limits for me. Even the allergist told me to just eat veggies, meat, and fruit for a year or so to see how I feel. I'm afraid I won't get enough nutrition doing that, though, so if anybody has any thoughts, I'd LOVE them!

I WILL make it this time!! I promise myself that I will!
