My ‘paleo’ lifestyle is on hold for the moment. I am trying to follow my nutritionist’s directions and they are more primal than paleo. I am a bit relieved to have more options, but it’s confusing nonetheless. On the one hand, I can imagine how the Paleo diet is healing for anybody with human DNA. All the blogs and Pinterest say so, right?! (Ha ha!). Seriously, though, I have to respect that my nutritionist is qualified and understands how to negotiate to various issues that affect my dietary requirements.
I am aware that I am not starting with a blank slate but, rather, with a lot of intestinal damage from Celiac disease that went undiagnosed for so long. Not everything is black and white and I have to remain as flexible and optimistic so that I can heal. I am keeping a dietary log and communicating with her so we can figure it all out.
This morning’s breakfast, for example, was a Stonyfield yogurt with raspberries.
My stomach is already making sounds as if there is a whale trapped inside me. Yikes! I was told Celiac should stay away from dairy the first 6-12 months after going gluten free… we’ll see how this goes!
What has your process been going gluten free? Do you have many options or feel limited? Did you seek advice from a nutritionist?
