What foods or ingredients do you try to limit or avoid in your diet to eat healthier? (Comments & Reviews) (Page 3)


I wish I could have clicked multiple responses. I have diabetes, so I try to avoid almost everything on the list!

Gluten (found in wheat, rye, and barley) is out at our house. My daughter has severe ADHD and I have arthritis. Both of us feel better without gluten. I admit, we do miss certain foods, but I am experimenting in the kitchen to find replacements.

I actually try to limit most of the things on that list but for both my husband and myself sugars are number 1 on our list of ''adding less" as we are both diabetic. He is on insulin already but so far I've been fortunate to be able to control mine with diet. I add very little salt to things I cook as I also have high BP and we are fortunate to have a couple very generous hunters in our neighborhood who have graciously supplied us with enough of the best of red meats - venison - to last most of the year. We grow as much of our own fresh food as we have room for on our small city lot and are slowly converting most of our yard space into raised garden beds for food, flowers and herbs for seasoning and teas.

I have a unique eating problem and have to avoid: eggs, turkey; milk; pork; nuts: tomatoes; ALL GRAINS; it is difficult to find any recipes without any of the above in some way. Any help would be appreciated.
