Intolerance to grains, rice, other bean-seed: from been there & survived on 2009-11-28

br>You may have to learn to cook, using no seeds, grains, beans of any kind in any amount. Roots (carrots, potatoes onions etc), leaves are ok, so is dairy, fish (but salmon: watch out) and meat. Remove all seeds tomatoes and peppers before using. Avoid stuff where seeds leaks out into flesh (melon, squash, ...) or at least check for reactions. Most important: read labels; only get things with no additives that you don't know are ok. Avoid: corn syrup, "hydrolyzed wheat protein", thickeners, shelf-life extenders, "flavorings". Use best quality olive oil, white cheese (that orange color is from a seed). Flour substitute: potato starch. To survive, need to cook from scratch. Give up old treat habits (choose between "fun" and life). Eating out (not often): plain steamed green vegetable (not beans), salad (your own or no dressing), meat (grilled, no pepper!), baked potato with nothing on it. We have derived a complete set of recipes (and survived since 1987...) Half of family has this condition. Result: none of us is overweight...
