Millions of people across the globe have realized the importance of a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. Some people have developed physical gluten intolerance and milk allergy. It is of utmost importance that these individuals ensure that they avoid gluten and dairy products and if possible negate its usage totally in their diets. Many naturopathic doctors have come up with several substitutes for gluten and dairy products to help such patients and other health-conscious people to avoid gluten and dairy without compromising the human body requirements for perfect growth and functioning.
However, the sudden and total switch – over from gluten and dairy products might be difficult for some individuals. It requires hard – rock determination, strong dedication and the ability to resist the temptations of the taste buds. The reason why people are in favor of the switch – over from dairy and gluten products is the pathetic manufacturing standards in the America. In comparison to Europe, America lags a lot behind when it comes to the quality and reliability of dairy and wheat products. Even some of the organic products developed and marketed in the United States are not health – friendly when it comes to their daily consumption.
As a result, many people have developed an eroding gut, or, in other words, a ‘leaky gut‘. The worst problem with this syndrome is that people cannot be diagnosed with it. It is perhaps an inherent feeling or the sixth sense that lets the individual know, learn and understand that some organs or parts in their body are malfunctioning and are thus failing to deliver the ultimate output. Apart from the leaky gut, people have developed and identified other pertinent health problems such as diarrhea, painful constipation, irregular passage of stool, embarrassing gastric problems and bloating due to excessive use of gluten and dairy in their diet. Other physical problems include those of improper heart beat and pulse rate and the emergence of considerable amounts of cystic acne. Some psychological problems like brain fog and unusual mood swings have also taken over numerous individuals. Some patients even complain of insomnia and sleeping troubles.
The only way out of all these problems is to replace the dairy and gluten products in the household fridges into healthy and best quality dairy-free and gluten-free, yet nutritious substances. At home, while beginning the transition, one must make sure to consume 100% dairy-free and gluten-free food items. Research has indicated that dairy products are comparatively healthier than gluten products. So, occasionally when people might have to choose between the two, especially when on an outing with family or friends, it is highly recommended that people prefer dairy over gluten.
For our health – conscious readers and numerous patients, we are providing a list of items that one might consider keeping in their fridges at home to serve as a substitute for the two most important ingredients of human diet – gluten and dairy.
Among the vegetables we have collard greens, red or green leafy lettuce, spinach, cabbage, cauliflower, green beans, eggplant, broccoli, chard of some types (that is, rainbow, swiss or red), kale, asparagus, carrots, beets, squashes (such as butternut, acorn, spaghetti, kabocha or delicata), yellow onions, garlic, sugar pie pumpkin, carrots, beets, leeks, shallots, zucchini, the very common green, red and yellow peppers, the fleshy mushrooms (like button and portobello), sweet potatoes or yams, and last but not the least, the all-time favorite potatoes (such as russet, red and yukon golds).
For our fruit lovers, we do possess some vital and delicious substitutes. These include the common ones like apples, bananas, grapes, mangoes, cherries, pears and pineapple and the not so common fruits like avocados and kiwifruits. These serve well while making the switch – over. Berries like strawberries, blueberries and raspberries and melons like watermelons, cantaloupe and honeydew are loved by many individuals and people do supplement their diet with these fruits after they have stopped consuming dairy and gluten products. We are all aware of the benefits of citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits, lemons and lime of all varieties. It would be a great idea to incorporate some of them in your refrigerator. And finally, stone fruits like apricot, nectarine, plum and peaches are one of the best ingredients that ensure healthy living of individuals.
Dairy substitutes are essential and people may consider keeping non-vegetarian products like eggs and meat in their fridge. Organically manufactured turkey, grass-fed beef, free-range chicken breasts, salami cuts and deli meats are also ideal for those who have made up their mind to quit dairy products. Seafood like fishes and prawns and other fleshy animal products like pork or gluten-free chicken provide the person the perfect nutrition in the absence of dairy products. Coconut milk, coconut creamer, almond milk and soy-free vegan butter must occupy a portion of the refrigerator for all health conscious people.
Apart from these, people may keep various condiments like hot sauce, bbq sauce, tamari soy sauce, ketchup, pickles or maple syrup in the fridge. Mustard (dijon, yellow or whole grain) and fresh herbs (cilantro, parsley, and basil) are good for occasional use. Green olives, capers, hummus, salsa, and sauerkraut are emerging as the top favorite product of such patients. And lastly, nut butter like almond butter and cashew butter are perfect substitutes for the dairy butter.
The list doesn’t end here. One may consult a naturopathic doctor to add more of their favorite substances into their fridge. It can be easily seen that living a gluten-free and dairy-free lifestyle is not that difficult. There is a variety of lip-smacking food products still available that you may consume daily. Hence, we recommend all fitness – freaks and sufferers of the gut syndrome to adopt a gluten-free and dairy-free lifestyle.
