I was just wondering what gluten-free food y'all would classify as "indispensible" -- and whether it is a snack, staple, recipe, mix, or ready-made item. We were talking about this around the table and my son says glutano digestive biscuits with chocolate icing but I say EnerG sweet potato english muffins because we use them for everything under the sun -- pb and j, toast, pizza, etc..

Gluten Free Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix. It is awesome and it stores well. We love to grill it and then put crab salad on it. Yum Yum.

HMMMM ... It's difficult to choose one. I LOVE those Ener-G Foods Brown Rice with Sweet Potato English muffins, but I also like their Harvest bread, and their granola bars. Can I just say ENER-G Foods Products? :lol: Actually, when I go on biking trips or day trips, I pack rice cakes (Lundberg Farms Sesame Seed), canned sardines and fresh fruit. I plan to take the first 2 and replace the fresh fruit with a bag of dried mixed fruit for my next airplane trip meal, since all those things are canned, processed or packaged and will pass airport inspections. ;)

Just off the top of my head, A Foods by George Brownie!! Those are quite yummy (I'd eat them if I could eat gluten, lol), call them dessert or snack. Also dairy free, which works great for me, since I can't have dairy either. =D

Rice cakes?

Seriously, I buy very few things that are designed to be gluten-free (being the whole-foods, cooking-from scratch freak that I am ;-) ), and probably rely on nothing other than rice cakes. If I were eating corn, I might say corn tortillas...

I haven't eaten reeses pieces at all since gluten-free however I did see them on a gluten-free list the other day! As far as indispensible products I would have to say rice which is naturally gluten-free as well as peanut butter.....fruit leather I also love the gluten-free rice pasta from tinkayada and Pamela's brownie mix! Also as far as gluten-free candy...everyone should try the Chunky by nestle its nuts raisens and chocolate and my absolute fave treat!!

i have 3 right now!!

bob's red mill bread mix:

i hadn't been able to find gluten-free bread since ive gone on this diet so i decided to attempt to make some tonight. i was very nervous considering i have never made bread in my life!! i thought for sure it would be a disaster , or wouldnt even taste like bread. But, i made it and it turned out great!!!!!!! it was pretty easy infact. i thought i died and went to heaven after eating a warm, fresh out of the oven peice of bread, and i couldnt even tell it was gluten free!

tinkyada pasta:

since i have discovered this, i have made macaroni & cheese (beats the box versions),lasagna, and spaghetti. before going gluten free i was the biggest pasta freak ever, so its nice to know that i still can be. these noodles taste like the real thing!

pamala'a cookies:

i tried the pecan sandies and the esprresso chip. i thought they were so good i want to try every kind! (and i thought i would lose weight from this diet! yeah , right)

Gluten Solutions Chocolate Mint protein bars, and ANDI bars.

We take these with us anytime we leave the house for more than a few hours, since they will do for a meal replacement when there is nothing else safe to eat. They are gluten and dairy free, contain 12 -15 grams of protein, and are pretty low in sugar and they taste really good.

God bless,

Mariann

Asian rice flour and Asian sweet (glutenous) rice flour! Hurrah for Asian markets! At only 50 cents a bag, this stuff is perfect for baking because it is nowhere near as gritty as the stuff in whole foods markets. Whenever possible I substitute these for other ingredients such as tapioca starch or regular rice flour. They have finally let me bake bread and cake that are better than regular boxed mixes and almost as cheap as regular baked goods.

Also, corn tortillas are a major staple for me now. I fry them for chips, eat them with soups, and make wraps from them.

Like Tarnalberry I eat very few prepared foods, but when I do I usually get Pamela's chocolate chunk cookies. The creamy chocolate used in them is unusual but delicious!

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
