<p>I am just beginning to read about TF, so I am not totally versed in it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My question lies in the possibility of TF while being GF/CF. DP has ADHD, and we recently started transitioning to a GF/CF diet, and it seems to be helping (see! even adults benefit!).  I know we can avoid casin using CO , but would coconut milk be TF? I would assume so...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any other tips/hints for TF GF/CF?</p>

<p>What's CF?  My dh is adhd too, whatever it is I'm sure he should probably avoid it, too! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyway, I'm assuming gf is gluten free? Definitely easy to do gluten free TF!  Coconut milk is certainly TF, you want to avoid "lite" coconut milk and of course organic is best, nothing with added sugar or anything.</p>

<br><br><p>We're gfcf and I got a lot of ideas in this forum for how to feed us when we first cut out gluten and dairy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You just want to keep the basics in mind--lots of fat soluble vitamins and more minerals.  If dairy isn't a source for them, you try to find other sources, good quality lard and tallow as cooking fats, homemade stock for calcium, or small fish with bones, or other sources.  There are chicken liver pate recipes around that look good--I'm going to try it for the first time next week, so I hope they're good!  Basically just try to maximize your mineral intake/absorption and keep in mind good calcium sources.  And add in other basic TF stuff as you can, stuff like fermented veggies (there's a long thread around, Search the forum, the NT veggie ferments work fine without whey and without extra salt) and soaking/fermenting grains and legumes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There are quite a few gfcf TF food blogs out there, it'll help with both meal inspiration and sweet treats. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>A whole coconut may be more TF, but we use canned coconut milk and I'm satisfied with it. </p>

<p>well said tanya!  We are GFCF, (actually we just trialed spelt with sucess?)  but anyway eating TF can be done.  This forum and the allergy forum really help.</p>

<p>We are here as well.  The thing is when reading TF you have to realize that not all traditional peoples ate grains or dairy.  If you look back at Price's original work it will be exceedingly obvious.  In those traditional groups there is such a wide range of foods they ate and macronutrient ratios- from the Intuit that ate nearly an entirely meat diet to other groups that ate lots of carbs and grains.  I think Tanya hit the nail on the head, focus on getting the best quality of animal products that you can(grassfed if you can afford and find it), make sure your fats are the healthy kind-animal fats-coconut oil, cut out the refined white foods-sugar-etc.  Add in things like codliver oil, bone broth and seafood.  We have currently been trialing butter here though and it seems to be going ok-fingers crossed. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I think on the calcium issue it is more important to make sure the vitD3 is optimal and to also consider making sure the magnesium is high enough, as most of the US is deficient in both of those.</p>

I'll just put them here, I got most of them from other posts in this forum.  Here are a couple that I've bookmarked recipes from, and I remember there were more when I googled, I just haven't bookmarked them yet.</p>

<p>This one isn't strictly defined as TF/Price-esque, but the recipes are gf and mostly cf and whole foods and he keeps talking more about organ meats and bone broth and such.</p>

<p>I am interested in this too, a friend sent me here to research.  I have one child who has SPD and possibly Aspergers is CFGF and my other child has a serious soy allergy so we are soy free too.  I am not real happy with the amount of processed gluten free foods and milk substitutes my children are eating and also the number of supplements we have our child with SPD on.  It's been a miracle for us in terms of helping her be a happier healthier child, I would like to work on her getting more nutrients from food instead of supplements and to normalize her diet as much as possible, I don't want her living on Enjoy Life bars for the next 10 years ;) .   My second child is growing really slowly and has bad tooth decay and I'm concerned that the fact that she's on a mostly CFGF diet simply because her sister is has not been such a good thing for her, maybe too much fruit and rice products and not enough minerals?  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am very fond of kombucha as are my children so I am trying to make some instead of it being just an occassional treat when we go to whole foods.  Also trying to make and use more stocks.  We already use a lot of coconut oil and eat organic meat so that is good I think.  I am pretty sure I won't be able to get them to eat fermented veggies but thinking of trying them anyway for my DH and I. </p>

<p>DD isn't too fond of fermented anything (not even pickles!), but she is fond of vinegrette coleslaw- made with Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, flax seed oil, and agave nectar.  I make it, but it does sit for a few days, sometimes.  Does that count as "fermenting"??</p>

<p>There is a book I recently read..."lost art of cooking.." or something like that? It has an orange cover with a whisk and there is a recipe for homemade almond milk and almond butter. Try that?</p>
