Breakfast Food/breads Question

9 posts in this topic

I'm awaiting biopsy but am testing gluten free foods.  I tried Vans frozen waffles and blehhh did not like, bought some nature's path waffles and those were much better to me, alot closer to eggos.  Any other brands out there?  I did not see any others in Whole Foods or Trader Joe's.  I also cannot find gluten free pancakes at either store at all though I do know they exist as I have seen the Van's ones advertised online though both stores only have the gluten ones.  I asked the girl next to me who was grabbing some of the Van's gluten free waffles and she said generally if you find the pancakes take a photo because you don't see them too often.  As far as bread goes I saw Whole Foods keeps em all frozen yet Trader Joe's does not for some reason?  I'm assuming its probably not a good idea to buy the non frozen bread as far as it lasting long?

Unless you live in the city where the gluten-free bread is made, the bread is frozen to ship. Some stores thaw it out and some leave it frozen. My WF thaws a few at a time. I usually ask for one from the freezer in back. If its thawed, I just put all or most of it in my freezer.

Many people like the Pamela's pancake and baking mix. You could make a bunch and freeze some. Some people even use them to make Pb & j sandwiches.

Schar bread is not frozen. We really like the baguette. You cook it about five minutes.

Unless you are in need of a door stop or sumphin'. :wacko:

 

Oh and I must add.... I love Van's Waffles and eat them every morning toasted with Peanut Butter (melted on the hot waffle) and Orange Marmalade.  WELL, almost every morning.  I never ate EGGO's, my kids did (before my dx) The cool thing on this diet, is you discover new priorities. ;)

If you find Krusteaz waffles they're pretty good. I wouldn't buy frozen pancakes since they're so easy to make. Either from scratch or the mixes are generally pretty decent too. I can't recommend Bisquick for breakfast foods, but it is awesome for impossible pies. Other than that though I haven't run into a pancake/waffle mix I haven't liked. By far though, my favorite everything in a box is Hodgson Mill.

 

You'll find that everyone likes a different everything best. Just the same as the gluten world. You'll just have to keep trying them all and decide for yourself. You'll also quickly realize that most of the prepackaged stuff is expensive, and in comparison to what you can make yourself, not good at all. Before you know it you'll have so many kinds of flour in your freezer you won't have room for waffles. :lol:

I buy the unfrozen Udi's from Trader Joes all the time. I put it in the freezer as soon as I get home and it's fine.

Everyone likes something different, but honestly, make your own.  Make a big batch of pancakes and freeze them yourself.  Way tastier. :)

I bought unfrozen Udis at Whole Foods and it was moldy by the next day.

My TJ's has gluten-free frozen waffles right by all the regular ones, so they definitely make them. Maybe if you talk to the manager then they could order some for the store?

 

I'm guessing, because you didn't list it, that you don't have Wegmans (mostly in the north east) but if you ever go where there is one, their gluten free frozen waffles are better than the normal ones and you get more per box. I would buy them even before I got my celiac diagnosis.

Another idea is to make banana bread.  It is great as French Toast, too.  I slice mine thickly, place wax paper between slices and freeze.  Easy peasy.  Or how about making muffins or cupcakes?  Very simple to make gluten free.  Eggs Benedict is one of my favourite things for breakfasts/lunches.  Just buy English muffins or use bread (homemade is best) or even bagels.  Toast 'em first and Bob's your uncle!  :D

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
