    I am now having to focus on alkaline foods.

    But, I need a daily menu that focuses on alkaline foods without gluten or dairy.

    So, is there any help out there?

    Hey Michael! I really appreciate your post in this neglected part of my online world. It’s a pleasant coincidence that you posted here at the same time I was working on my Foodary website. I’ve neglected it too long. So, I promised myself earlier today that I would start an improvement project. Anyway, that’s far too much about me. Let me start on your problem.

    Up to now, I haven’t investigated gluten-free and dairy-free diets. I will change that now, and try to update my lists. So, hopefully, that will help you better.

    To encourage me, I’d like to understand the problems that you have with gluten and dairy. I will research general principles on my own. But, I’d like to make sure any advice I give is the best it can be for you, personally.

    Do you have to avoid all dairy and gluten? Or, are there some foods you can tolerate?

    OK, Michael, I’ve started my research. And, I’ve found several recipes for meals that tick all 3 boxes. Alkaline meal plans that are gluten-free and dairy-free are possible.

    I’m not sure if you are looking for random recipes. Or do you want daily meal plans?

    As I expected, I found that the healthiest meal plans depend on specific health issues. For the best meals for you, please tell me more about your health issues that prompted your question.

    I’m still waiting for responses from you, so I can tailor my research results to your situation. It’s a very big topic (actually 2 big topics). So, I don’t want to bore you with certain details of gluten-free or dairy-free, if they don’t apply to you.

    More importantly, I’ve just got a reply from a very relevant researcher. I asked Catherine about her pending research: The Unintended Consequences of a Gluten-Free Diet. It’s due to be published soon. But, she kindly sent me a pre-publication draft.

    This is very important research, that is relevant to everyone. But, it is particularly relevant to gluten-free dieters. This new research shows the real dangers of mercury and arsenic for gluten-free dieters. But, I feel it has implications for everyone who eats rice regularly.

    Do you eat a lot of rice, Michael?

      Keith, hi. While Michael hasn’t replied, I’m interested! I currently eat more quinoa than rice. I’m already GF (I simply feel better w/o gluten) and am investigating going dairy free. (And based on my research, some would recommend a vegan diet–though I’m not sure I’m ready for that .) My interest in alkaline “diet” is to keep my body on better balance. (I have skin cancer issues.)

      I’m sorry for the delay, Stacy. But for some reason, I only got a notification that you had posted today – over 3 months late! My faith in technology is fading 🙂

      Anyway, let’s get back to “free from” alkaline diets. First, I should explain that I am definitely not a fan of “free from” diets for their own sake. Because I believe every human has a right to eat a healthy balanced diet that, almost by definition, should not avoid food groups because of fashion. So, if there are specific health reasons to avoid gluten and dairy, then I can be supportive. But I believe it is unhealthy to avoid essential nutrients unless you have sufficient information to balance the risks.

      Now I’m wondering how you feel about Mediterranean style healthy eating? Because that is a great foundation for a healthy diet. Then it is easier to tweak that diet to achieve better health goals. For example, it can be improved to make it more alkaline than the average Mediterranean diet. And that should definitely assist skin cancer issues.

      However, I need to focus my research on skin cancer. Especially with respect to gluten, dairy, vegan issues. All I can say about the vegan diet, for now, is there are some essential nutrients that are hard to manage. But, I’ve never yet met anyone who has considered veganism who is prepared to discuss this. So it might be better to start a new thread if you are serious about moving towards a vegan diet. That way I can keep this topic focused on “free from” alkaline diets.
