I'm going to try and go GF again. Any helpful thoughts you want to send my way. It was really overwhelming last time, hence why I'm still not GF

Just checking in here to update, and wondering how everyone is doing.

We are not eating vegan anymore--no where close. Ds just kept having more and more reactions to legumes. Finding sources of vegan protein became overwhelming, especially in light of other stressors in my life, so we're just eating whatever we can safely manage right now.

I find it difficult to imagine every eating fully vegan again in our circumstances, but I would like to lean a little more that way, b/c out diet was so much healthier with that mindset, even if we made the occasional exception.

How's it going everybody?

Hi! My name is Annie Beth. I have celiac and so does my 2 year old daughter. I also have my 5 year old son on a gluten free diet because I know he has a genetic predisposition towards it. I would love to be vegan (or at least vegitarian) for both ethical and health reasons. I do believe it is the diet we were originally designed to consume. Only problem is, all three of us are underweight. My daughter just hit 22lbs and she turned 2 in April. My son lost body mass between his 4 and 5 year old appt, and my doctor recently told me I need to gain at least 5lbs. I have osteopenia pretty bad from the celiac (almost osteoporosis), and I'm only 29. My 2 year old has a dairy protein intolerance, so we were completely dairy free until recently. However, with her low weight and my osteo issues, the doctors really want us to re-introduce dairy. I've done a vegan diet before, but had to quit because of weight loss. Does anyone know how to maintain a gluten free/vegan diet while still maintaining or gaining weight? I don't buy into the ascertain that one must consume dairy to get enough calcium, but it sure makes me look like a wacko to avoid dairy while having such low bone density.
