    I also have a reverse osmosis filter on my kitchen sink, it is not very expensive to buy and you only need to change the filters every six months.

    I also drink smoothies with  organic frozen berries, bananas, apple juice or coconut milk, I add coconut oil too since I am trying to gain weight.

    I drink iced tea sometimes if I am outside.

     

    I do drink organic coffee with pasture-raised creamer ( milk is from grass fed cows).  My 3 o'clock espresso is my favourite time.

     

    Fresh vegetable juices, if I get to it.

    Where can I find both of these- mung bean and kelp noodles!  I would like to try! Are they available in Whole Foods or online? Thanks!

    Oh, thanks, I shop at the Sugar Land's Whole Foods too, silly me, i thought you meant they will pre-cut the whole butternut squash for you, just like they can cut the meat, oh, well i guess I will have to keep asking my husband to cut it.  I can't even cut it in half. I just buy the whole organic butternut squash, I knew they have pre-cut but need to check if they have precut organic one. I cook a lot but pre-cutting veggies is the hard part, it takes a lot of time.

    I put mine on the shelve too and barely use it, there are several recipes that we still cook, but it was way too expenseive to buy just for  3-4 things.

    I have researched and purchesed 2 other books that are not only cheaper, but are true gluten free or paleo.

    one of them is Tender grass fed meat: Traditional Ways to Cook Healthy Meat by Stanly Fishman on Amazon for $15.45  This is a great book for all of us, pretty much all recipes are true gluten free, they may ask for pasture butter but you can use olive oil if you avoid dairy.

     

    The other one is The Primal Blueprint Cookbook: Primal, Low Carb, Paleo, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free and Gluten Free by Mark Sisson.  On Amazon for $18.64 This is my favorite, all recipes are fantastic and taste great. Some of them may ask for pasture butter or cream you don't have to use it.

     

    Both of these books use only Fresh ingredients, the only canned things you may need are organic coconut milk or organic tomate paste. This is money well spent.

     

    The other site i use is Elana's pantry, we bake bread and other stuff following her recipes, and it's free if you subscibe to her site you get emails every time she has something new. Her Paleo bread is the best gluten free bread I have had so far.

     

    Casey's kithen that shows up here on the forum is very good, the ones I have tried taste really good too. I wish there were all under the same place instead spread all over the forum

    Are they better? You can check them for parasites or bacteria? My son was doing the same, throwing up on and off, now we are running these tests on him. I believe he might have gotten them from swimimg practice. But one can get parasites or bacteria anywhere, especially little kids , they put their fingers in their mouths all the time. It may not be related to gluten or virus.

    Let us know how are they doing! Homeschooling four kids! I have a lot of respect for you 🙂

    Jackie, where did you have the test for Leaky gut done? I am like you, trying to gain weight without much success, I did not know that malabsorbtion may be the issue. As a matter of fact the grain free diet has caused me to loose even more weight.

    Do degestive supplements you take helo you?

    Thanks!

    How does one know if she/he has Candida, what are the symptoms and how does it affect you if you have it?

    Thanks,

    Hi Michelle,

     

    My genetic tasting for gluten was positive and I am trying to follow the true gluten free diet for 4 months now, I do have an autoimmune condition like you and am responding well to the gluten free diet although not entirely healthy. I did have a bad attack the beginning of the year and had to be on prednisone also, this drug is awful, about killed me.

    My son also has ADHD and just like you I am trying to save money for his genetic tasting as well, chances are he is 50% gluten intolerant. He does respond well to a whole some diet of organic food, I avoid anything artificial, dinners are mostly meat and vegetables. My main concern for him going gluten free will be not eating bread. I am still experimenting with the gluten free breads and treats from Dr. Osborne's book.

    Hi Andrea,

     

    You need to eat more than two oranges for lunch, I just had halve a chicken for dinner, I ate salad, after dinner I had some almond butter with Brazilian nuts and blueberries.  Before I go to bed I will have more fruits.

    I hear you about being hungry, you will get over this stage. Just don't let yourself be hungry, you need to plan your meals and know what are you going to eat days in advance.

    I am going to post my quick and easy baked chicken in the recipes forum. You need to learn 3-4 easy dishes that you can make without to much prep time.

    Polina
