Hi all - We started the whole family on a gluten, dairy and soy free diet this week and I swear I see changes in my son already! We are super excited BUT it has not been an easy switch, especially since my son (10) is a vegetarian. I'm hoping to get advice on your favorite GFCFSF brands, tricks, kid-friendly recipes, etc. I am blogging our recipes at http://feedingthefamily.wordpress.com and about our personal family story at http://fletcherandlola.wordpress.com Thanks in advance for your advice - I have so much to learn!!
I'm just about ready to take the plunge and go gluten free with my son. Last Saturday, when the doctor was going over results, he asked if we ate out much. This is a very rare thing for us to do. He said that MSG could cause high Glutamate and low GABA that showed up in the neurotransmitter test. I've been researching and it seems like there is a connection with MSG and gluten products. Is this right? I'm also beginning to understand that it also occures naturally in our foods such as vegetables and fruits. I'm about ready to plant my own garden. Is it possible to was this stuff off your fruit and vegetable or do you have to buy organic? How do you avoid MSG? Does this show up in food allergy testing? I have been going back and looking at the post I did earlier on Gluten Free. Thanks for all your answers. I have been working on a menu plan but I still lack some confidence in trying to pull this off. Am I dealing with a double edged sword trying to go gluten and MSG free? Is it possible to do both? My son really likes pasta dishes? Can anyone recommend a brand of noodles to try creating mac and cheese and spegittie?
