I recently found out the hard way that it is important to choose foods that will digest well in the gi tract in addition to daily juicing. I just landed myself in the hospital due to a food/bowel obstruction. I just started eating some new items and I went overboard on these foods before realizing that they do not digest well. I was making raw almonds, cashews and pecans into recipes. I made some muffins from almond meal along with a breakfast item made of almonds and almond milk. All of these foods contained small pieces that just did not digest and went all the way through the gi system and were seen at the very end each day. Some of these did not make it through and built up creating a blockage.
I actually need some help out there from those who are super knowledgeable on a gluten/dairy free diet that contains foods and recipe ideas that are easily digestible. This is the area where I struggle and need assistance, a food list, recipe blog, ect.
The one story that was pretty shocking was one of a girl with the same problem here at the hospital. The bowel obstruction turned out to be completely made from salad items for her. She ate super healthy and still had a problem due to excess fiber that just does not digest fully.
I have had no food during this time and the first thing I am going to put into my body will not be food. It is going to be the following recipe for a fresh start.
- Turmeric Powder
