Live Life Celiac Ranch

Our own version of Ranch dressing. So good and belly friendly (egg-free mayonnaise can be substituted) that you may start eating salad for breakfast! We use Spectrum cage free egg mayonnaise and use the jar to not only measure out the kefir, but also to store some of the ranch dressing afterwards.

 

3 Ingredient Naan (Indian Bread)

I am going to get to the point…. This is awesome! Think warm pita bread; slightly chewy, warm, wonderful bread with flavor! I couldn’t stop eating them as they came off the stove (it took some self control to get this photo for you).  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do, please comment below how you like them or what you did to change them up a bit.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Heat 6″- 9 ½” pan over medium heat and pour batter to desired thickness. I used a ¼  cup measuring cup to pour the batter into the pan. If you prefer a larger naan, use a 9.5 in pan and use half the batter for each one. Use a small amount of batter, spread thinly to use as a dessert crepe.
  3. Once the batter fluffs up and looks firm/mostly cooked, flip it over to cook the other side. It Does take a bit to cook, I wrote this post while cooking my batch.
  4. Enjoy!

Gluten Medication Sickness

The website Gluten Free Drugs is a valuable tool to know if you are able to take brand name, generic, or over the counter and medications. It’s important to know what you can or cannot take before you need it, if possible.

Because the three of us girls have additional problems with the consumption of corn, we are often forced to harm our digestive system to heal our immune system. Since our digestive system controls our immune system, we end up compromising our health and throwing our system into imbalance. Most all prescriptions and over the counter medications contain corn syrup, corn starch, or other corn derived ingredient(s). During the last 7 months, an upper respiratory infection has put me on three different antibiotics, several cough medicines, codeine, and prednisone to get rid of it for good.

Of course this has left my belly so bloated that my new fashion staple has been pajama pants and leggings since attempting to wear my jeans has been uncomfortably unsuccessful.

Tomorrow begins the important job of healing my gut and restoring the gut-flora to all it’s bacteria goodness. Not doing so can cause a Candida overgrowth (Candida Albicans) yeast to attach to and eat through the intestinal walls. This causes a condition called “leaky gut syndrome.” Facto-fermented dairy, yogurt, kefir, and some fermented vegetables, meats from pasture raised animals and bone broths (if you are not vegetarian), ghee, avocados, animal based fats and non-hydrogenated coconut oil are helpful in speeding the healing. Diet, along with a daily regimen of probiotics for the next several weeks or months, until you feel “normal” again.

When healing your gut be sure to limit grains, avoid caffeine, coffee, fermented soy products, sugars, alcohol, and eating out,  unless you trust your health to a stranger.
