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..

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!

    • Need help with "positive" blood test results
      You'll want to keep an eye on all your vitamin levels, as absorption problems are quite common with gastritis. You've probably already looked it up, but this is the WebMD page on gastritis. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/digestive-diseases-gastritis  It's not the best article as they mention 'treating' it with antacids which is pretty much the opposite of helpful. (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2002/01/020115074441.htm) If the medication they were going to prescribe is an antibiotic, you might want to reconsider. If you have H. pylori, an antibiotic is the only sure way to get rid of it. If you don't get rid of the bacteria, the B12 deficiency will worsen.

      Yes, ATTITUDE, in all caps, and i am in the field of health care...!

      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information!

      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
