I know variations of this question have been asked before.. I am just dumbfounded. I was never the type to have any issues with grains/gluten. This is not one of those "well you just didn't realize you felt like crap all the time" situations, I never felt like I do now- except when I'm pregnant in the 1st trimester and nauseous all the time.
Because of finances- we've kinda gone off our paleo ways lately. I have been fine with the pea soups, quinoa, and oatmeal. Last night we had regular ol' spaghetti noodles- SUPER nauseous. I've also had bread a few times and felt very nauseous afterwards.
I am noticing the nausea connected to gluten. It's just so weird as I was never like this, even when I first went paleo and cheated quite often before going hardcore.
Now, there is the possibility there isn't a connection and I actually am pregnant, but doubtful as we are perfect use condom users and I just had a baby and haven't started cycling yet (yes I know it's possible to get preggo on that first egg, but still while using condoms? extremely rare). I'm taking a test today just to rule that out.
I'll keep a food journal but so far it really seems like whenever I eat gluten I'm nauseous... and possibly corn too as I was nauseous the other night after popcorn (freshly made in my kitchen with coconut oil and sea salt, not nasty movie popcorn lol).. and yesterday morning after corn tortillas I was super nauseous.
So anyone like me? Totally fine with non-paleo foods before going paleo.. then develop a sensitivity. Again, I did NOT feel like crap all the time before going paleo.. I went paleo to keep a healthy weight and to see if it helped with depression/anxiety.. I didn't have any tummy issues with grains before. Weird.
ETA: ok just so y'all know, the tight budget is a temporary thing, I have 6 kids.. our grocery bill used to be 250 a week, sometimes more... we're down to 100 a week and that includes things like toilet paper, hygiene items, etc (I do make as much homemade stuff as possible)... it's just temporary.. I am not asking how to eat paleo on a budget.. just about this odd phenomena.. in about a month or so we will be back to eating good paleo foods again! I just can't buy CAFO meat, sorry I cannot.. if I can't afford it- I eat another protein source.
