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.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
