With my digestive issues, and dd's temper (I'm wondering if it is partly food related), and ds 2 acting some days like he's autistic and others he's fairly outgoing (again, I have to wonder if diet is to blame), I really want to try to cut out gluten and apparently casein isn't good for ds2 because what I've read is that it should be cut too.
The problem is, I don't know what gluten or casein are. I can't avoid something if I don't know what it is, so can you all give me a good book to read, or maybe a link or website to help me out. I know that when we ate vegetarian (lasted a whopping 6 months) dd's behavior improved, and my digestive issues werren't as bad. Now that I think back, we ate mostly fresh veggies, dried fruit, and rice. For protein we did lentils and occasionally beans. So I don't know if that was cutting out casein and gluten or not.
Help me out here, give me the beginner's guide to the GFCF diet.
