2009GETINLINE, I eat the broccoli stems but cut out the Kale main stem. It is too tough for me. Try it and see. The kale leaves have plenty of roughage.
Margie, I always enjoy your posts but that one is way too technical for me, emoticon

Wow2009, that is a lot of food to avoid!
I used to love broccoli in many dishes raw and cooked but the thyroid function is reduced when I eat this thus slower digestion body with pain shows. I have hypothyroidism. The inner softer middle of the stem is often shredded and dressed like coleslaw.

I am intolerant of many foods that contain high amounts of sulfur. Most natural shades of color in beans/lentils hit me wrong. I adore a plain Cannelini Bean. I buy dried in bulk and store in a cool dark place. This is put into a crock pot with water and soaked 12-24 hours then rinsed. Rinsing often cuts the gas factor in the surface of the beans to reduce gut ouch from gas. The crock can be on any setting but I usually used high for a 4-6 hour slow cook then rinse again right after the cooking is done. My ability to spice with clean dried herbs and spices make this a versatile option food from cold bean salad to hot and spice chili beans; I just love them.

Beans also have a nice quota of DMG, Di-methyl-glycine, two methyl molecules attached to a sugar saccharide, a natural pain reducing lactic acid pulling and brain focusing nutrient made by the body and added in through foods. It is used by natural doctors to enhance sports performance like marathon events- ADD, ADHD and autism as body calming and thought sharpening when used in a supplement form.

This info page also said…The flatulence causing compounds in legumes are primarily oligosaccharides, which are composed of 3-to-5 sugar molecules linked together in such a way that the body cannot digest or absorb them. Because the body cannot absorb or digest these oligosaccharides, they pass into the intestines where bacteria break them down. Gas is produced by the bacteria as they digest the oligosaccharides. Navy and lima beans are generally the most offensive.

Oh dear thank you so much. I 'm ragweed intolerant (birch/Adler plant) Vegetable and fruit which contains tiny seeds. Squash, pumpkin, eggplant, bananas, kiwi etc.
I do cook the yellow squash it's milder but I have to be careful. Spinach, turnip greens, broccoli rabe swells my tongue.

Thanks for the tip on the broccoli, I purchased kale and I will chop the stems.

Yo ticker! Thank you for moving down:)

Yes, I used to eat the broccoli stems when I was able to eat broccoli. Just peel the outer skin off as it is tough. They always recommend beans but I find l don't digest them. They need to soak a long time before cooking. I do better with squash, etc and I put ground flax on my cereal. That works for me. You are also supposed to add fiber gradually, not suddenly.
The doctor needs to check the charts! 35 gr/day is for men, not women according to the charts I have checked. www.healthlinkbc.ca/healthfiles/hfil

The Mayo Clinic had some good information www.mayoclinic.com/health/fiber/NU00

Here is a quote from www.gihealth.com/html/education/high
Fi
berDiet.html


Here are six basic types of food that contain high amounts of dietary fiber:
1. Beans - including pinto, navy, lima, kidney, and baked beans. Beans are especially high in soluble fiber, the cholesterol-lowering type.

2. Whole Grains - Wheat bran (IGNORE_) and Oat bran (Only if labelled gluten free. Not all celiacs can tolerate Oats)

3. Whole Fresh Fruits - these contain pectin which is another soluble fiber. Figs, prunes, and raspberries have the highest fiber content. (figs are very high in fiber)

4. Cooked Fruits - cooking does not destroy the fiber. Prunes and applesauce are good choices.

5. Green Leafy Vegetables - be aware that most leafy vegetables like lettuce are mostly water and contain little fiber per serving. A typical lettuce salad is a poor choice. Spinach, kale, and broccoli are suggested.

6. Root Vegetables - potatoes, turnips, and carrots are best.

AHHHH! (that's a scream). I've been fighting with stomach, dehydration, sores for as long as I can remember. I get to be in my late 50's when all walls fell. Food intolerances, dehydration, mal-nutrition etc.

Today 4/18...age 62! I find out I have border-line Celiac Disease. This is because I thought I had food intolerances and have eliminated a lot of food from my diet or I take a Benadryl. I will see the GI doctor in May for medications; in the meantime, I'm to follow Celiac Disease foods to see what happens.

Here's the hard part...work up to 35 grams of fiber a day!

Suggestion: eat 1 cup of beans 2x's per day...whoooo eats1 cup of beans at a time?

Help...I'm shopping tomorrow at Whole Foods for grains and bread.

I'm to eat broccoli stems, chop and steam with broccoli heads. The stems to leafy foods is roughage! Heck I throw the stems away...Did anyone know this? emoticon

Thank, guys. I really appreciate this team.

With the flood of information from the growth of interest and the still open in some places freedom of speech, we are able to discuss it. We can phrase this difference in brief words. I wrote to the web consultants at a Gluten website and my question netted this response… www.gffoodservice.org
“Not necessarily, you should consult your physician. Gluten-free foods are foods safe for persons with celiac disease. They have none or very low levels of the 'gluten' proteins that could be harmful to persons with celiac disease. Celiac disease is a t-cell mediated reaction. Wheat allergies involve an IgE-mediated reaction to the wheat proteins albumin and globulin fractions. In rare situations, gluten could also induce an IgE-mediated reaction.”

We do know that should the poor health continue without intervention the tiny organ in the body called the adrenal glands perish beyond repair (Addison’s) and “the boy in the bubble” (autoimmune) with little recovery power could be the last straw. The gut nearly dies (loss of flora then IBS or Diverticulitis). The intestines open up little holes then bigger ones then burning red gaps of helicobacter (virus?) invade (ulcers). The skin may show bumps blisters or pigmentation alterations (Dermatitis Herpetiformis) the decline has been expressed and sometimes even the doctors do not see it. The system stops absorbing wonderful cure all nutrients. Malnutrition is real and tons of anti-inflammatory antibiotic and pain meds of a cascade of options fail to put Humpty-Dumpty back together again. Finding the true cause early and habit awareness to implement change social and physical ones combined with better sleep and nutritional support may not always fix it. But the steps do lead back to improved health in the current body potential limits. And as the adrenal glands sink deeper into disrepair more and more allergies intolerances and hosting vermin of fungal bacteria and viral foreign life will manifest from these weaknesses. The change is up to you.

This part of why I love this team; I want change. The evolution may move slower than I would want but the doctors are learning and the resources are building and I love the exchanges here on Spark.

Thanks for posting your experiences. While we are all on a gluten free diet, we may not all react the same to otherwise gluten free foods. I'm going to use your reference in another post that is getting sidetracked between gluten free and wheat allergy.

Thanks for the info!

Dorothy

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.

I went through the most handsome list of foods of threat or harmony in my gut. I got it from the Gluten-Free Diet: a Comprehensive Resource 2006. I give my thanks to Nixie Raymond, Jenny Heap and Shelly Case for my benefit for compiling just such a global list then placing it online. Most of the odd foods can be had in international market places if not from a local common grocery outlet. Here goes…

I first explored the obvious no-no’s to see how I acted and reacted as a journal gathering step. Woe is me. The acted is mentioned because some of my past no-no’s are redundant little monsters that beg me to say, “Thank you, sir, can I have another!” Deliberately hurting my self was an eye opener. My health recovery of gut repair is largely due to my acquiring this information. I could have learned to say ‘ouch’ in ten languages I am so focused of finding a pain free diet and getting back into my life. What is Fu and what is Seitan; for me being quite the foodie these I am not familiar with. Let’s just say yes I agree these are not my friends. Each and every –darn- one except fu and seitan has proven to me and my doctors to be that these are no longer my friends, through journal discussions. It is the little known details that silently scream and recovery becomes necessary.

The left side list of Table 1in this very informative publication of gluten free guiding me in potential choices was viewed with wide -yes wide- eyes of hope. Not all of the alternative to classic diet starches will stay in my diet. Some are no longer my preferred options as well. My eyes are not so wide with hope any more that theses foods are for me. The left side list of table 1 is only known to be gluten free; I however have more than one intolerance or allergy.
I will use the alphabetized listing pattern they provide…
Amaranth wonderful;
Lately I avoid anything flour nut seed bean like garbanzo bean or Fava bean mesquite or teff flours for many cooking food processing and woes of digestion reasons. They tend to make my liver sluggish for starters and other unsavory results appear. Buckwheat corn Fava flax hominy millet nutmeats oats peas’ potato might always remain on my too much pain and poor body digestion to appreciate re-adding these to my diet.
Quinoa magical;
Rice is miraculous for versatile shapes textures and flavors I enjoy. I Can Eat This although a bit redundantly; Puffed streamed steel cut like Rice and Shine of some fame, whole grain in a variety of rainbow colors from black red brown green sweet sticky wild jasmine and basmati and the grain size can vary too. My love is there in the many pasta shapes; they have specialty meal potential; wow. This is about the only processed food I eat!
Do you understand the term glutinous rice? Not my friend either. I know this because I tried but no explanation of why or how yet.
Sago I am still not sure.
Sorghum and soy in any form are a definite no, not a friendly food with genuine side effects of aches and reduction of certain organ function causing more pain wit elusive results. And the last two recommended foods as alternatives for similar nutritional support of tapioca maniac, cassava, and yucca are still being researched in me. And the last one on this amazing list is teff. I have intolerant issues that may delete this little beauty from my “Yes; I can eat this” list. But as a grain I am still looking and challenge diet testing.

So if you are new to this gluten-free thing, by choice or doctor required, my own food list yeses are so much less than just eating and acting gluten-free. For comfort I found hope and decent answers in this great celiac resource written by authors that know the celiac diet well. Thank you to the Celiac Diet series #1 continued from page 68 but listed on page 73 of the 2006 edition. Through this I write some facts from 5 years of self research. Take the steps do the research on yourself. Do for yourself the things the doctors cannot do for you and feel the change soul deep. Take the challenge to explore your gut writing it down as you go along and your journal will be a heavenly assistance to you and your doctors.
