    Coffee and gluten/grains?

    Primal Fuel
    Someone sent me this:
    Gluten Issues or Celiac? Don’t Drink Coffee!

    Discuss. Personally she isn't quoting any research and I have never found coffee to exacerbate (or improve) my IBD nor have I ever heard anyone say it has.

    Ohhhh goddammit!

    Coffee was the one thing I had left...
    Gave up chocolate and gave up tea because I'm a walking time bomb for kidney stones... gave up all the other bad** habits... except for one or two lovely cups of coffee 4-5 days a week because it's freaking delicious.


    And now that's gonna cause autoimmune problems too!
    I want more information.

    **bad- chocolate, tea, and coffee are not really "bad"... they have wonderful properties when consumed in moderation... by people who can process them properly and who don't have medical issues evidently. Goddammit!

    Don't believe everything you read. Coffee is my line in the sand.

    I've given up everything else... and had great positive results with my autoimmune issues.

    I will likely be drinking my coffee while I do further research on this one though...
    I will only give up this last comfort very begrudgingly.

    I'm less complex. I just need coffee, chocolate, and tequila.

    I dunno if it is because I am gluten sensitive or plain coffee-sensitive, but I feel the best when I don't drink coffee. I don't like the idea of giving up tea, but maybe I should do that too. Tea prompts me to snack anyway (I love 'tea with something' in the evening).

    For years, I played the 'let's find the least damaging snack to have with tea after supper', and maybe the way to go is to give up tea & just drink water and broth. I am trying to stop playing the games with food, and it looks like one of the good venues to pursue.

    To clarify, coffee impacts my mood & energy swings and sleep. I think it also contributes a lot to bladder problems.

    Now with teas, I drink green and herbals, and what I am wondering is if I am getting some odd chemicals along with the leaves and for the bagged teas, hell knows what goes into them at all. And tea would be one thing I have never tried to drop. Sounds like a good experiment to me.
