Q: I have had a throat exam and found out I am allergic to grains, rice, corn and sugar. I am a protein type person.

I am having a hard time finding food to eat. I was told by the doctor to eat 85% protein 10% vegetables and 5% carbohydrates. Can you help?


A: A super food to concentrate on is quinoa (a seed native to South America originally). Millet is also a low reaction food that is totally nutritious. Quinoa is particularly high in protein, so may be really suited to you and versatile in the kitchen. You should have more of a look on internet for suitable recipes.

The question is, are you a vegetarian or meat eater? I recommend finding a nutritionist who is prepared to give you some sample daily menus so you can plan a proper eating regime with these tough restrictions.

In Canberra, Australia we have a whole bakery devoted to quinoa, soya and tapioca.

The other approach is to get a session from a Bodytalk practitioner in your area to assess and treat your digestive system (and possibly other bodily systems), to find the real cause of your food intolerances.  You have to look outside the square, as everything in your body is linked to everything else.
