The ups, downs, and runarounds of Celiac Disease and food sensitivities

Food Purchases

Man I’m having a hard time reintroducing grain into my diet! I just forgot about it and the day has ended and I’m like OOPS. Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats (GF) are the easiest to incorporate as I can make a big pot and keep them in the fridge for the week.

In other exciting food news, I discovered these black beans noodles which I am very excited to try at Integral Yoga the other day:

Ingredients: organic black beans, water

I also tried some of Annie Chung’s Seaweed Snacks in Sesame. Yeah, the canola oil is not the healthiest (other ingredients: seaweed, sesame oil, salt), but they sure do satisfy a craving much more guiltlessly than other packaged snacks! I’ve also been using nori sheets to make wraps with chicken and vegetables.

In other seaweed news, I purchased some kelp noodles over at Vitacost (free shipping deal going on with purchase of $49), which I’m also excited to try. Who knew of the existence of so many grain-free noodles!

I also sprang for some good deals on Bob’s Red Mill GF grains (buckwheat, millet, more steel cut oats) to get my 1/2 cup of grain every day.

Having started a calorie counter online (which tracks other nutritional levels and exercise), I’ve realized how bad coconut oil is- obviously it’s a fat, but I had no idea just how fat. Simply using it to saute meets one’s daily quota of fat and saturated fat. This led me to bust out the George Forman for an oil-less dinner (4 oz chicken breast, grilled zucchini with a dash of EVOO on top of a handful of baby spinach with pepper and chives). I was somehow still under my daily caloric needs, so I threw in a microwaved small sweet potato with cinnamon. This online system is much easier than the paper logs, and I like that you have options for portion size (oz, g, tbsp, etc.). I’ve found my paper chart of calorie content has a few odd measurements (e.g. if you’re not sure of the weight of what you’re eating), so the online system is less of a hassle. And, big surprise, the online system is much more comprehensive, though I still need to work out how to count portions of foods with multiple ingredients (e.g. chicken salad, coconut bread).

I’m feeling somewhat better than during the previous post, and must remind myself that my indulgences are really pretty healthy, even if they needed to be further spaced. Plus, food may not be the issue. If only leaky gut and candidiasis were easier/more reliably tested than thyroid and PCOS (both of which I plan to have tested).
