Re: sweetjade1- regarding gluten

it's not as hard as it looks. That list is simply very thorough (looks daunting). It is actually really simple to avoid gluten.

Re: sweetjade1- regarding gluten

margarine is terrible for you anyway. Butter you shouldn't eat if you have acne. No they don't have gluten unless through contamination. Some chips do. Depends on the chip. I would guess a lot of chips do. Chips are terrible for you anyway.

Re: sweetjade1- regarding gluten

Whilst we're on this subject, prometheus. Are foods fried in olive oil "better" for you than those fried in vegetable oil, butter or lard, or are they just as bad? I know olive oil is a good oil because it's mainly mono-unsaturated but does heating it severly denature it?

Re: sweetjade1- regarding gluten

Vortex,
I disagree

Jhart,

Yes heating olive oil does seriously denature it. Same thing with the refining process. I wouldn't purchase any olive oil or any oil for that matter that has been refined, if I planned on consuming it. It is better to eat food fried in lard than vegetable oil.


Plant oils are very delicate and unstable. When heated they become toxic and harmful to our bodies. Research it if you like.

When it comes down to it, if health is what we want, water is the only thing appropriate for cooking. Steaming, poaching, boiling, or pressure cooking.

We should severely limit our consumption of polyunsaturated fats. Olive oil, being monounsaturated, I think primarily atleast, is the only one I would eat, but not heated.

Re: sweetjade1- regarding gluten

Erica,
LOL, Wow! Now to answer your question I avoid the obvious sources of gluten 100% (ALL bread products from gluten grains) and it's derivatives at least 98%. That usually means, unless it is specified what FORM of Vegetable Protein or Food Starch, I will consume it.

However, I generally always avoid Malt, unless it's specified as coming from a Gluten-Free Source. I also avoid sauces, gravies etc if I'm aware that they contain Gluten flour (thick = flour, thin/clear = may have no flour). When I want chinese, etc I use 100% Soy Sauce, but of course there may be sauce soy (w/ wheat) already on this food so I limit consumption to every few months. The same goes for eating some flavored chips, processed meats, rice mixes, & seasoning blends because for some reason....the world can't live without a bit of gluten/wheat in seemingly ALL of our foods. I don't drink, but somewhere I have a list around for that as well.

I'm not allergic to wheat or gluten, nor am I a Celiac so it's not a HUGE conern to eliminate that .0001% of gluten, but if you are (or you are still breaking out) then it is extremely important that you do so. Besides, most of that stuff is bad for us anyway and if you aren't eating processed foods due to gluten avoidance, you won't run into the majority of those ingredients. So unless you are trully allergic, it really is much easier than it looks =)

How are things going for you anyway? Found plenty of foods to replace the above? If not, do another search and you'll find lists of safe manufacturers and brands.

Take care and thanks for list =)

Re: sweetjade1- regarding gluten

hi sweetjade1,
thought you'd disappeared. it's nice to see you back you offer great advice and input without ever sounding...umm... condescending.
I haven't written for awhile because I'm still playing around with diet etc. I don't want to say too much more until I've drawn some more definitive conclusions, but I will definately let you and the others here know as soon as I figure out what exactly works for me.
