Great Bread Substitute
0

6 posts in this topic

Hello all. I am new to posting but have been reading/registered to this blog for months now. I stumbled upon a great bread substitute & had to share it...

I had a small amount of Bob's Red Mill gluten-free pancake mix left over & decided to try & make the badder off the top of my head - it was not nearly as thick as it should be, but I was desperate for pancakes so I used it anyway. IT WAS SO GOOD!! I ended up with a bunch of large, thin pancakes that make a great bread substitute!

I had always put things other than maple syrup on my gluten-free pancakes but these are different, they're like crepes. I put pb&j on one & Tofutti better than cream cheese & berries on another and folded them like crepes - delicious!!

I don't know exact measurements as I was just adding away, but I highly recommend adding more milk/soymilk to make the badder thinner.

PS I replace the following items: soymilk for milk & applesauce for oil

I do the same thing with the "Crazving's Place" pancake mix! How funny, I thought I was the only one. LoL. I also thought I was the only one who substituted applesauce for oil in everything...is your diet oil free? Mine is, besides the one small capsule of EFAs that I can tolerate once a day.

I also noticed that your name has "veggie" in it...are you a vegan? I'm also a vegan...so basically I follow the McDougall diet (fat free and vegan), but gluten free.

I just thought I'd ask, because perhaps we could trade advice or recipes :)

Hello!

My diet isn't oil free, although maybe it should be? I am still trying to figure out what I can tolerate and what I can't. I was vegan before I went gluten-free and now I don't eat any dairy or meat, but I do eat eggs since going gluten-free... I want to cut them out (and go back to being fully vegan) as soon as I get a grip on what I can eat & make a healthy diet out of what's left!

I looked up the McDougall Diet online, it sounds pretty similar to a regular gluten-free vegan diet & so I am interested in it, but it doesn't allow you to have soy products... how do you deal with that? What do you eat for protein?

Thanks!

Oh & I would love to have another gluten-free Vegan to talk with & get recipes from... although I should warn you, I'm not that creative in the kitchen, my "recipes" are very basic & quick lol :)

Well, I don't know how good the McDougall diet is for you on a long-term basis, but I know that going oil-free for a while is supposedly very good for your heart. I take a capsule of oil everyday though and I seem to be tolerating that okay for now, just so I can get in my EFAs. I definitely know what you mean when you say that you're trying to get a grip on making a healthy diet out of what's left...it seems like I'm trying to create recipes out of the same few ingredients, over and over again!

I get my protein from beans. I eat 2 or 3 cups a day. All different types. Currently I'm scouring the web for gluten free, oil free, vegan bean recipes. It's a bit tough. Haha...

Glad we can relate :)

Hi,

Add me to the list of McDougall-style vegans, plus I'm new to gluten-free. There's a good discussion board on Dr. McDougall's website (www.drmcdougall.com) that has a section for gluten-free. That board isn't as active as this one, but there are lots of helpful suggestions there for recipes, etc. Plus, the fact that there are other people out there who eat this way is encouraging--I know sometimes I feel like such a weirdo since I don't know anyone personally who eats the way I do. <_<

There's at least one other gluten-free McDougaller on both boards--I think her username on this board is hathor, and on the McDougall board it's DianeR. I think she is also soy intolerant, as am I, and since I think she's been eating this way for a while, she might be a good person to contact with questions.

If you're interested in learning more about this eating style, Dr. McDougall has lots of good books. There's also The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn, and Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman.

As far as protein goes, Dr. McDougall says that there's an unnecessary and unhealthy emphasis on "getting enough protein" in the US. He says there's a much greater danger of getting too much protein for most Americans, which taxes the kidneys. He says there is basically no such thing as protein deficiency, except in situations where starvation is occurring; that is, as long as you are eating a sufficient amount of calories, your protein needs will automatically be met, because the human need for protein isn't actually that high, plus plant foods contain plenty of protein. Beans are an obvious example, but lots of other foods that you wouldn't think of, like leafy green veggies, are high in protein, too. For example, 100 calories of broccoli has more protein than 100 calories of steak. So you can definitely get enough protein on a vegan diet, and even on a soy-free diet. (Although, just to clarify, Dr. McDougall isn't totally anti-soy. You just have to be aware that it's naturally high in fat, so don't go crazy with it, as a lot of vegans do. Also, you want to go for whole natural soy like edamame/tofu/tempeh, etc., rather than highly-processed soy like "isolated soy protein," etc., which may be detrimental for your health. But don't think that soy is "forbidden," unless, of course, you have an intolerance.)

Hope this helps clarify some questions. Hopefully some other McDougall-style, gluten-free vegans will reply as well, if there are any others out there! :)

Stephanie

tell me more about this using applesauce instead of oil??? Why and do you use the same amount or less? Like it s recipes calls for 1/4 oil do you use 1/4 applesauce?

I only ask because I have a friend whose baby is highly allergic to corn and might be reacting to some other oils as well.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
