Smoothies! Depending on how you choose to make them, they're nothing like ice cream. Use whatever fruits you like, and whatever juice/milk/yogurt you'd like. You can add protein powder to them easily (I do this when I have a smoothie for breakfast since I can be borderline hypoglycemic - which is why I also use full-fat soy milk for them.)

Also, refried beans (make your own from a can of pinto beans), avocados (mashed up), apple sauce, yogurt, chicken broth (Pacific brand... yum!), mashed potatoes (make 'em with more liquid if they need to be really thing) (and you could also mash sweet potatoes or carrots for variety),... and that's all I can think of at the moment.

Good luck.

so skip the mashed potatoes, and maybe the refried beans (though I've eaten them cold), and the chicken broth if you don't like it cold. everything else works great cold. (particularly smoothies... yum! eh... I've been on a smoothie kick, what can I say! :-) )

- As Tarnalberry said, smoothies, applesauce, yogurt (almost all my ideas)

- Also, canned fruits (mandarin oranges, peaches, etc.). And of course, you could mash them up.

.......not much, but I hope it helps in some way

Hi Molly,

I was wondering how you were doing? I had my tonsils out when I was 15 and it hurt a lot. Now they like you to be on pain meds. since they realise you heal better and faster when you are not in too much pain! I wish they did that then. My daughter goes in in three weeks for her surgery. She is only 5 though, and it is easier when you are little...

As for the soft foods. I know this is a little strange, being that you are a teenager, but babyfood gives you a wide variety of choices and flavors. I used it when I had my tonsils out, and I've already let my daughter pick out a bunch of flavors for her to use. And they can be eaten cold.

Or you can steam any kind of veggies you want and make a veggie puree in the blender. Just let it get cold and eat it that way. I did this for my husband when he had his tonsils out last year. Do not try to puree rice though, it gets really sticky. Hot rice cereal will work though. Just cook it and add more milk to it. Stir it up while it is cooling down so it stays smooth.

Any food can be eaten cold, it just might not taste as good. The pureed baby food meats would give you a little bit of protein, too. And if you like tofu, it is soft and can even be added to a smoothie to give you more protein.

I hope you are doing well.

God bless,

    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Good idea! Add also the lactulose - mannitol test, to confirm they are/are not experiencing leakyness in the gut, then correlate the results with the symptoms (obviously digestive symptoms would have to be excluded, because diarrhea and bloating will probably be present anyway, due to having damaged intestines). You see, ironically it would be "gluten-free challenge", because possibly systemic symptoms ("leaky gut syndrome")  and GI symptoms start after going IV fluids -> gluten-free (instead of "gluten challenge", which would be gluten-free -> gluten).
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      PPIs should not affect your digestion of gluten one way or another. Many folks with celiac disease may have villous damage without obvious symptoms. Others eventually get symptoms after the disease is "activated," but exactly how or why this happens is not yet clearly understood. Biopsies are generally done after someone has symptoms, and likely already has villous damage, so I would imagine your doctor must be necessarily a bit vague about whether you might have "inactive" or "active" celiac disease. The gold standard is to get a biopsy while still eating gluten, and then another after being on a gluten-free diet for some time, to assess whether you heal without gluten in your system. Positive genes and blood work, AND villous atrophy would seem like fairly strong evidence, but that's up to your doctor to determine. If you feel comfortable sharing your test results on the forum, some folks here can give you their two cents. But listen to your doctor! Glutenease might help your digestion, but if you have an autoimmune reaction to gluten, it won't prevent the possible damage that comes with gluten mistakes. Research on l-glutamine is somewhat supportive for healing, but it's not a panacea.  You will read about various levels of sensitivity and prudence here and elsewhere. Eventually you'll come up with a plan that you consider is "safe," but hopefully will still let you get out in the world. Read up on gluten-free groceries and how to deal with restaurants safely, and you ought to be able to find a happy "middle-path" between prudence and paranoia. I'm one of the fairly sensitive/paranoid types at this point in my life. I personally don't worry too much about possibly breathing in gluten, but on the other hand I wouldn't eat anything that's been out where flour is in the air. Nor would I use a shared toaster or fryer. Again, it's important that you form a lifestyle approach that is informed about the risks but still a good life! Most importantly, work with your medical team to determine if you in fact have celiac disease.
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      We are utilizing the "our kitchen is completely gluten free" and DEFINITELY checking every label every time methods. SO glad to hear my DGP should drop!!!! 
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Without reference ranges for the IgA there's no telling wether the IgA or tTG are anything worth while.  I think your best bet is to wait on a call from them for interpretation. I know that's hard but really, they are the ones with all the necessary information.
