Gf "junk Treats"...
0

21 posts in this topic

My better-half and I were talking yesterday, and she asked; what do I crave right now, if it didn't matter about ingredients. I said; a chili-cheeseburger and fries. So today, when she came in from being out, she had HQ ground beef, Borden cheddar cheese, and a nice store brand chili we found. So, we had one of our favorite "junk food treats" without the "junk"; the bread that is.

:-)

This was the first time I'd had something like this without the bread... which made me start thinking 'n' wondering about what other people have done to change/improve some of their favorite non-essential food treats.

Come-on everyone, let's share some ideas..... thanks, GC

When I REALLY want a Wendy's cheeseburger, I will go to Wendy's and buy the burger patties without anything on them (of course I get really strange looks when I tell them to just put the patties into a "boat") then I bring them home,put my own lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mayo and mustard and cheese on the patties and either put it on some gluten-free sandwich bread or eat it without the bread! Sure satisfies a craving!

Great idea for a post!

I found a recipe for a chocolate polenta cake and made it friendly to celiac AND my allergies and it tasted just like chocolate cake! I topped it with fresh berries and it was so yummy!

Another thing I do is make cheese sauce out of nutritional yeast and put it on EVERYTHING>...............!

When I'm craving something really good, I make brownies, put vanilla ice dream on them, and some Hershey's syrup heated up poured over it all. It's really good and reminds me of Chocolate Thunder from Down Under at Outback, which is a good gluten free but not dairy free dessert.

My "better half" refers to a husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend. My husband will introduce me to someone new by saying, "I don't think you have met my better half Kimberly..." ;)

Hi lorka150,

The chocolate polenta cake sounds great. I have alot of other allergies as well: egg whites,peanut, rice, and pinnapple. I have been looking for a cake for a while. Would this recipe be ok with my allergies?

Thanks,

Traci

Yes, it is an American English expression. Each person in the couple is considered "half' of the whole, so it is a joke in our country to call the other person the "better" half.

Use Caution at Wendys.

You will need to watch them make the food (just peer around - the kitchen is behind the cash register normally).

I went to a Wendy's last week and ordered my usual "Double With Cheese, No Bun, Lettuce Tomato Onion Only, Extra Cheese. Anyway, I always watched them make it. This time, the cook made my burger and put it on a bun!!!!

I quickly grabbed a manager, told him about my "allergy" and you know what his response was?? he said, "Hey guys, that burger is no bun, take the bottomburger off with the bun and give this guy a new bottom burger and out it in a new wrapper.....

I looked at him and said, "Hey man, one crumb and I get sick, can you get me a new burger please?"

He paused and then looked back to see what they were doing......at that same time, the cook took a new patty and put the whole thing down........ON ANOTHER BUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unbelievable!!!!!!

The manager then stepped in and made a new burger according to my instructions.

I normally do not have a bad time at Wendys, but this just shows you that we, as Celiacs, have to be there watching (no drive through -- sorry -- its unsafe to take that chance) ---

You can eat there, but make sure you either watch what they are doing or GRAB A MANAGER and have them make it....

Also, watch if they use the same "shovel" for the fries and the chicken nuggets -- cross-contamination galore!!!!

I am allergic to rice - it's such a bummer, eh?

For the cake (which I made with carob), there are two eggs and four egg whites. I can still post the recipe, but can you work around that?

Just remembered today; we normally make for eiter Thanksgiving or Christmas, what's called a "Mystery Pie"... similar to a Pecan Pie, but with roughly half the corn syrup replaced with cream cheese... after it bakes, it has formed two unigue [and tastey] layers! This year it's got to be gluten-free, so we talked about making the pie shell from ground pecans and butter/margarine.

If anyone is interested, I'll get the 'better-half' to relay through me the fixings...

Yeah, I think I can use egg substitute. The one I have works great with a variety of recipes.

Thanks so much,

I would love that recipie (for when my body likes dairy again). Thanks!

I'm thinking about going to the store later to grab the ingredients for some gluten-free "Rice Krispie" Treats. I've decided to make what I'm calling "Sugar-Death Bombs" and substitute Cocoa Pebbles for the [unsafe] Rice Krispies.

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
