Sitting down to a meal should be a relaxing and nourishing experience. Sadly, when one suffers from food sensitivities mealtime can become fraught with worry especially when dining away from home.

While the knowledge that certain foods can create discomfort has reached mainstream acceptance, our society’s dietary offerings have been slow to respond. Sensitivities tend to arise to foods that are heavily ingested and America’s reliance on foods such as wheat and dairy make it difficult to avoid these foods unless cooking one’s own meals.

Celiac disease is the most severe presentation of poor response to gluten and those diagnosed must be vigilant and avoid all gluten. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is another response to gluten which can create brain fog, skin reactions, digestive discomfort, and joint pain. The true prevalence of gluten sensitivity is still unknown as symptoms can be vague and some people undoubtedly remain undiagnosed. Dairy is another common food that creates sensitivity issues for people.

In addition, many more people suffer from digestive discomfort and bowel irregularities due to additional causes including poor digestive function and stress. Many meals in our society are consumed quickly in busy environments. Stress is counter to the process of digesting a meal. When we are in a stressful state, our body does not secrete the same amount of digestive secretions including saliva, hydrochloric acid, and digestive enzymes. We don’t break food down as well. We don’t absorb nutrients as well from incompletely digested foods and in a stressed state, we have less blood flow to our digestive organs to absorb nutrients into our bloodstream. Food that sits in the gut can ferment, creating gas and bloating issues. When food gives us symptoms, the very act of sitting down to a meal can become increasingly stressful.
