7 FREE Recipes below – Feeding a child who suffers from gluten – wheat or lactose – dairy intolerances is as easy as ABC. Simply provide nutritious alternatives which fill the gap and the tummy at the same time.
I grew up with these intolerances and had to find my own way through the ‘food minefield’ suffering from chronic reflux, bloating and gut issues much of my life and only to STOP when I did two things:
1. Self-Healed my gut issue using 100% natural means – 1 flat teaspoon of green papaya powder after my main meal of the day.
2. Began eating other food alternatives free of those two offending proteins and food which supported my gut function.
Let me explain the reasoning behind #1. After a near death experience when the contents of my stomach emptied back into my lungs when I was asleep, I was forced to find out why I nearly died. Simply by being pushed hard enough to change the way I ate and lived, I googled something and these words appeared.
1. “Inability to break down proteins” – the cause of my 45 years of anguish which no medical person even came close to explaining to me.
2. “Protein Malabsorption” – my gut muscles had more or less atrophied. I was suffering from a form of paresis – dysfunctional gut muscles.
3. “Proteolytic Enzyme” – a naturally occurring enzyme which helps to break down proteins (there is protein in all food – more or less) and relieve stress on the gut muscle. In other words a catalyst supporting the gut muscle not unlike a band on a footy player’s thigh. It occurs in green papaya powder and pineapple in the form of papain and bromelain, respectively.
So after I began using some green papaya which I obtained from India (and now grow pesticide free and process here in Queensland, Australia) I noticed an instant response to my reflux and other symptoms. After a year they had all but gone.
#2 At the same time I changed the food I was eating, refining my options, ensuring I still had the sweet, sour, salty, savoury,creamy and crunchy eating experience.
I found easy to prepare bread and milk alternatives. I found ways to have a nutritious breakfast which helped both with my elimination and giving me a head start to the day.
Here are the 7 FREE Recipes I promised you at the start of this article. Click on the image and select anyone of the recipes. Hit the ‘Click here to watch video’ on the complimentary recipes page and also download a .pdf to each recipe if you’d like to keep the recipe handy. Master the art of thinking ahead for your child’s sake too. The best time to make the seed bread is Sunday afternoon and keep in an airtight container in the fridge for the rest of the week. I make cashew milk as I need it each day and let the nuts soak to remove the need for straining through a nut bag. TIP: Almond milk needs straining and tends to go off faster than Cashew milk. The making principle is the same. Just decant into a glass bottle if making ahead and it will last for up to seven days in the fridge.
My best advice to parents of kids suffering from wheat and dairy intolerance is to seek natural whole plant based alternatives. Steer away from so-called gluten free breads or anything processed which says it’s gluten free. The wee tummy is under so much pressure the idea is to give it a hand up with its functional healing and then follow through with ‘kind food’.
