Foods to avoid for general gallbladder disease:
Eggs (Research showed that eggs have caused symptoms in up to 95 percent of patients. We don’t know however if the eggs used in this research were factory-farmed or the better choice of free range and organic but this is always the problem with clinical trials and tests. For right now try substituting flax seed gel in recipes that require eggs for the “glue” that holds things together. For example 1 TBSP ground flax seed to 3 TBSP hot water will congeal into a nice gel. Let cool and add to your recipe.)
Fowl (turkey, chicken and again we assume the culprits are factory farmed but again let’s err on the side of caution and avoid these foods for now)
Dairy (pasteurized) milk, cheese, and cream. (I personally have found raw dairy to not be a problem but again we are all different and have different philosophies, so proceed with caution)
Gluten and grains in general such as wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut, etc.
Coffee, regular or decaf
Trans fats, Hydrogenated, partially-hydrogenated oils, vegetable oils
Saturated fats (it’s best to even avoid my favorite fat for just about everything, coconut oil until feeling better)
Alcohol, beer, wine, liqueur
Colas and all sodas
Oats (for some people)
Avoid all artificial sweeteners, sugar, preservatives, refined and bleached foods (like white flour)
Avoid smoking as it can exacerbate the symptoms
Avoid all possible food allergens
