I ate some brown rice, quinoa mix yesterday, just a little bit and I feel like I am being attacked! This was with a stir fry of chicken and veggies in coconut oil with curry powder and ginger, which I have eaten many times before. I immediately began to feel nauseous and had pain in my esophagus. Lots of burning and burping ensued plus my tongue was burning. I had previously take prilosec for a few years but quit after about a week of Whole 30 with no side effects. I did notice a little indigestion at night after reintro of sourdough bread a few days ago. So I decided that was out. But this attack is like the worse I have ever felt of acid reflux. I am not sure if I want to try anything else ever and I am not sure if this will go away. I took some digestive enzymes and a prilosec when it seemed like there was just too much pain. It is a little better this morning but I have not tried eating anything yet. What do I do now?
I came across the 'whole30' yesterday - I have been doing something very similar since May last year. I have an autoimmune condition, Graves Disease, which improved month on month after changing my diet and is now in remission. I was curious to see quinoa and buckwheat in your list of foods to avoid, as I'm aware these are (non-grass) plant seeds rather than grains. I eat a fair amount of buckwheat and so far have no problems from it. I also eat a very small amount of nightshades (I get a weekly veg bag, so if it contains nightshades I will eat them, but I dont buy them separately ever). I understand that a substantial percentage of graves sufferers may also be intolerant of nightshades. I am aware I have had a problem with peppers for years, but assumed I was allergic to capsaicin - I have re-evaluated this in the last year and am unsure if its is capsaicin or nightshades that I'm allergic to. What are your thought on nightshades, and why do you consider buckwheat and quinoa foods to be avoided? Many thanks, Mandy ps I also ferment a proportion of my veg and eat or drink something fermented everyday - I believe this is also an important aspect of a healthy diet â€“ what are your thoughts on fermented foods and drinks?
I recently read: "Quinoa is commonly grouped with grains such as wheat, oats, barley, and rye because it is typically consumed the same way. But in all actuality, quinoa is a member of the same food family as spinach, Swiss chard, and beetsâ€”a chenopod" Does this mean we can eat Quinoa? What is W30's take on this information. Thoughts would be much appreciated.
