Gluten Free Dairy Free Recipes - Healing Gourmet

gluten and dairy free recipes

Do you think eating grains is an important part of a healthy diet? And that dairy is the best way to get calcium and protein? If so, think again.

For most people, these two food groups can pose uncomfortable and even serious long term health effects.

The Dangers of Gluten and Dairy in the Diet

In fact, gluten (the protein found in grains including wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut and oats) and casein (the protein found in dairy products) cause or contribute to a laundry list of health problems for many people, including: depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, OCD, autism, autoimmune disorders and dementia, not to mention bloating, fatigue, gastrointestinal distress, nutrient deficiencies, respiratory difficulties, systemic inflammation and more.

 But why do these comfort foods cause us so much discomfort?

When we eat foods containing gluten or casein, we get a temporary “feel-good” effect. That’s because these compounds produce morphine-like substances aptly named gluteo- and caseo-morphins.

However, these proteins have been introduced into our diet only recently in the evolutionary timeline (see the Paleo Diet), and our bodies are not adept at handling these proteins.

Our vigilant immune system works to protect us against foreign invaders, mounting a response that causes an inflammatory cascade. And the effects aren’t just felt in the belly, but in the brain too. The problem is that for many people, our immune system identifies these common foods as invaders.

How to Go Gluten and Dairy Free

If you suffer from any of the above listed conditions, seriously consider eliminating gluten and dairy from your diet for a few weeks and see how your body responds.  Make a journal. Try Healing Gourmet’s healthy grain and dairy-free alternatives. And consider getting a full allergen panel to nail down which food allergies and intolerances may be keeping you from enjoying a vibrant, healthy, disease-free life.
