What To Eat For Dessert?
0

8 posts in this topic

Being off gluten I'm trying to find foods for desert for 2 reasons 1: I love desert and 2: I'm losing too much weight.With that said I had replaced desert with chips which I'm starting to believe I have a nightshade allergy or sensativity.Why? Because I ate spaghetti with brown rice noodles and had a bad reaction so I equated this to tomatoes( my mom told me when I was a kid I broke out into hives from this).I also crave chips and this is another sign of a food intolrence and lately my muscle tension and pain has increased since I eat like 3/4 of a bag a day.Sore buttocks muscles,thigh muscle tension,back pain etc.So I dropped all nightshades and although my muscle tension dropped and pain I still have some.Well guess what... I replaced chips with awesome ginger cookies made by kinnikinnick foods and strawberrie bars from glutino foods both dairy free/gluten free ( I'm also dairy free for now during my tests).Well today I read the ingredients and tada potato starch!!! Geez come on really ??!?? So can us gluten free people get any breaks?? What do you guys eat? I'm down to 70% dark chocolate but its so rich I can't eat too much.Thanks for any suggestions

Craving something does not equal an intolerance. More like needing what is in them.

 

I'm allergic to tomatos. They make my body feel like its on fire and i hived up to them during the skin test (quite largely as well). Before my allergy was found out and before the burning started, i avoided it because it gave me a rather large belly ache and i just 'didn't want it'.

 

As for the starch, its a good replacement in some ways.

 

When in doubt, you could always do fruit type stuff. Like apples with a dip (i'm a big fan of peanutbutter).

Pudding.

There are lots of recipes out there using milk alternatives. Lots using coconut milk, cream. Lots of recipes on the web in a zillion flavors.

Pavlova or meringues, granitas, brownies (with ghee), Bananas Foster (made with ghee), pears poached in wine and vanila beans, coconut layer cake, lemon poppyseed muffins...lots of great stuff you can easily make yourself.  There are tons of recipes that are naturally gluten free, thankfully.  What kind of chocolate are you having that does not contain dairy?

So, you need dairy, gluten, and potato free?

I've had some of the ice cream substitues that weren't too bad (coconut milk and almond milk stuff). I also ate some chcolate chip cookies last night that were gluten free, but not sure about the dairy...

Looks like they have potato starch though. :(

Why is it that every time you post food stuff, my mouth automaticallty starts to water?  I think I have developed a Pavlovian response to your posts!!!!!  ;)

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
