17 & New...favorite Recipes?

4 posts in this topic

Hello :)

I'm 17 and I've had celiac for about a year but at first I was in somewhat of a denial and I just continued eating gluten...then I stopped but basically lived off baked potatos, popcorn, diet pop, & rice noodles. I'm tired of that though...and I need some good recipes. I'm also trying to get in great shape for summer-does anyone have any good healthy recipes? I'd appreciate any help...

Thanks, Allison

I don't know about healthy things but here are some stuff make. Fried shrimp using rice flour (you can do chicken strips, too), I like to use Kinnikinnick english muffins and toast them and eat tons of egg sandwiches with lettuce and cheese and toppings, wow these really aren't recipes, hmmm, I can't think now but I hoped I helped. Oh, you can always do salads and fruits!

I like raisins, strawberries, peaches, bannanas, cherries, and blueberries.

Also, if you are craving sweets then find a cake recipe and use rice flour to replace flour and Splenda to replace sugar. Splenda is a 0 calorie artificial sweetner WITHOUT aspartame(which is bad for your body)

If you want to shape up for summer start jogging/walking/stretching and lifting light weights. Before you work out, make sure you stock up on protein. Protein helps your muscles build easier. Try fish,eggs, and low-calorie protein bars.

A gluten-free protein bar is GenSoy in Chunky CHocolate peanut butter fudge.

Good luck!

I like salads of mixed baby greens with grilled chicken on top, spinach in meat sauce, black bean and corn enchiladas...the possibilities are really endless

    • I just traveled three weeks this summer in Europe (Eastern).  Do not trust that the airlines will remember to load a gluten-free meal for you.  There is a 50-50 chance that they will not (in my experience).  We packed ONLY carry on.  Still found plenty of room to stash some emergency food.  You should be able to find food within an International airport.  Chips and typical junk food clearly labeled, even fruit.  Print or load Celiac travel cards with you in all the languages you will need.  They are free.  Google it.  Found these handy (not only in restaurants) but in the markets when we could not read labels but the staff could read them and Help us to make gluten-free choices.  amazing how you can communicate without knowing the language.  A few words like "thank you" in their language go along way (so does Google Translator).  Never met anyone who was not willing to help.   I carry a collapsible cooler that I pack with food and bags of ice to eat on then plane or right at my arrival or connection.  I take extra zip lock baggies with me.  Sometimes TSA will let you through if the ice is still hard (not melting).  Some will make you toss them then I just ask a restaurant to refill my ziplock baggies after passing Security.   I also carry a doctor's letter on my phone to show I am celiac, but no one has ever asked for me to present it.   Even though I carry a "third" piece of luggage on board, I have not been stopped.  Both that and my day backpack fit under the seat.  I use this cooler as needed through our trips.  If not, it fits in my backpack.  
    • Welcome, Kierra. You're only 15 so you need to make sure your parents are 100% aware of your medical issues so that they can advocate for you. It may or may not be celiac, but the only way to find out is to start with a full celiac blood panel, then an endoscope if necessary. However, for the tests to be accurate, you must consume gluten on a daily basis. 
    • Great points!  We use the "Find Me Gluten Free" app a lot (post too).   We look for reviews created by celiacs.  I probably sounded like Debbie Downer when I posted above, but it is possible to go out and dine at restuarants, it just takes a little research and time to the restaurant staff.    
    • Yes it sounds like you may need further testing to rule out other conditions. Maybe seeking a second opinion from a endocrinologist and/ or rheumatologist would be a place to start.
    • This is a personal choice and everyone will have different levels of comfort depending on personal preferences and their circumstances -- what's available, where they live, the details of their condition. Gluten Dude is a blogger who has written a lot about the topic of dining out with Celiac: http://glutendude.com/category/eating-out/ Calling ahead to see if they are gluten-free, learning about their practices, and make sure their able to accommodate requests is a good strategy. There's other tricks like using the gluten-free filter on Yelp when searching for restaurants. I know some people like Find Me Gluten Free which has a website and app. It's an adjustment for sure, but it can be worth it to feel better and still get to do things you enjoy.
