Food Intolerances : Almonds, Barley, Malt, Whey

PostPosted: Sun Jun 12, 2016 9:37 am    Post subject: Breakfast? Reply with quote

Hi, I'm new to the forum, but thankful, it's available.

I was diagnosed with CC 2 years ago, but I don't have it nearly as bad as others on this forum. I can control it with Immodium. I've read the book and it was very informative, but may have to re-read - some of it was over my head. I had a blood test done for food intolerances and the worst culprits were almonds, barley, malt and whey. So I'm trying to adjust. Breakfast is my main downfall - I'm just not sure what to eat. And...granola (protein) bars were something I could grab and run with, but do you know how many of these contain almonds?! I'm to have eggs only once a week, so..........any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you!!

Hi,

Welcome to our Internet family. Many of us eat the same foods for every meal while we are recovering.

Those of us who are not sensitive to eggs or pork often eat bacon and eggs. I'm not sure why you have been told to have eggs only once each week. If that's because of a cholesterol issue, someone (probably your doctor) is very confused. Eating cholesterol doesn't cause high cholesterol levels any more than eating fat causes obesity. Eating refined grains is the primary cause of both obesity and cholesterol issues.

Furthermore there is plenty of published medical research that shows that lowering cholesterol levels does not improve longevity. In fact, current research is proving most or all of those old health claims that have been preached to us for decades to be wrong. Doctors made those mistaken assumptions decades ago and as time passed, everyone just assumed that they were proven facts. But they were never proven by valid scientific research, and it has taken researchers half a century or so to get around to proving them wrong. Eggs are one of the healthiest sources of protein available (for those of us who are not sensitive to them). I eat at least a dozen eggs every week, and my cholesterol is much lower now than it was years ago (I've been on a GF diet for about 14 years now).

But when I was initially recovering, I wasn't sure that eggs were safe for me, so I ate pretty much the same foods 3 or 4 times each day, mostly pork, chicken, potatoes, and rice, with an occasional helping of green beans or broccoli. But if you are not sure which meats are safe for you, the safest choices are turkey, lamb, and wild game (such as venison) virtually no one reacts to them.

Most of us can tolerate the Chex Gluten-Free cereals, such as Rice Chex or Corn Chex with Almond Milk.

If you would like to see proof of my cholesterol claims, check this out:

Quote:
Abstract

Multiple food allergies required a group of seven patients with elevated serum cholesterol levels to follow a diet in which most of the calories came from beef fat. Their diets contained no sucrose, milk, or grains. They were given nutritional supplements. This is the only group of people in recent times to follow such a diet. During the study, the patients' triglyceride levels decreased from an average of 113 mg/dl to an average of 74 mg/dl; at the same time, their serum cholesterol levels fell from an average of 263 mg/dl to an average of 189 mg/dl. At the beginning of the study, six of the patients had an average high-density lipoprotein percentage of 21%. At the end of the study, the average had risen to 32%. These findings raise an interesting question: are elevated serum cholesterol levels caused in part not by eating animal fat (an extremely "old food"), but by some factor in grains, sucrose, or milk ("new foods") that interferes with cholesterol metabolism?


The red emphasis is mine.

Reducing the serum cholesterol level with a diet high in animal fat.

I hope that some of this is helpful.

Again, welcome aboard, and please feel free to ask anything.

Tex

Can you eat bacon or sausage? I fry up Jimmy Dean's All Natural Sausage and freeze it and heat it in the microwave every morning........I eat 3 patties.......lasts me all morning along with my banana and almond butter............Bacon works also but it doesn't hold me as long.................

Welcome to our group!

for many years (even before MC Dx) as I was Gluten free/Lactose free I would have reheated vegetables with safe protein for breakfast

I do much better in the day when i have protein rich breakfast. time wise, It cooks while i pack up my lunch and snacks for the day.

Another option is stew/casserole reheated. I cook them on the weekend and freeze these in portion size.

Some members have found same safe protein drinks based on rice or hemp. these work well for meals on the run.

hope this helps

Hello. I drink hemp protein powder mixed with almond milk and 1 TBSP coconut oil. If you are avoiding almonds, some drink rice milk. I never was much of a breakfast eater and this holds me until mid-morning when I have a banana. I found an all natural sausage at Wal-Mart like Jari mentioned, only it was Smithfield Farms. I eat it for lunch instead of breakfast.

Welcome,

There are Lara Bars, they contain like 3-5 ingredients. I eat the one with choc chips in it and it is just dates-choc chips-cashews-sea salt pretty much. They make an apple and a peanut butter one too. At least these do not seem to have anything you react to at the moment. They are quick and the one I eat has 4 gram protein and lots of potassium I'm sure the peanut butter one has more protein. I also have found a safe bread that I toast and stack a safe amount of deli turkey on and that is my breakfast with a cup of coffee. I wish I could help suggest something quick but I'm learning in the MC world not much is quick and thinking ahead is super important.

You can do this! Keep asking about things :-)
Cheers
Erica

Erica,

I'm trying to figure out which Lara Bar you are buying............I do ok with the banana one and the pecan pie one........haven't really tried any of the others...........I don't remember just seeing chocolate.......I remember a chocolate with coconut, I think.............they do work great in a pinch...............I take the banana muffin ones to school for a morning snack...............

Thank you so much for all the advice!!

As far as eggs - I had a blood test done and eggs was one of the things I was "moderately intolerant" of. My cholesterol is borderline high, but always has been and I have been seeing a lot of articles on the cholesterol and it's importance or lack of.

Ok, I'm off to the grocery for rice milk, Jimmy Dean sausage and Lara Bars!!

Thanks so much for all the advice!!

Hi Jari,

http://www.larabar.com/our-products/larabar/cho...chip-cookie-dough

This is the one that I have been eating....after looking at this website, apparently there are tons of flavors the I had no idea existed! May have to extend my shopping to a different outlet in my area to see if they carry anything beyond Walmart where I have shopped forever.

I'm careful because it does have fiber and sugars, but it is my go to bar when I need something in between meals, since it doesn't have to be refrigerated.

Cheers
Erica

and3008,

I you are intolerant of chicken eggs then it is best to not eat any of them (at least not while you are recovering). Fortunately there's a better (safe) option. Most members here who are sensitive to chicken eggs can safely eat duck eggs. Duck eggs are available at many farmer's markets and some supermarkets.

You're very welcome,
Tex
