Great Bread Substitute

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.

    • Weird Reaction
      Thank  you Flowerqueen and Cristiana for your replies. I'm actually feeling much better today. I got my appetite back yesterday lunchtime (a few hours after I typed the original post) and managed to keep in/hold down some chicken and lettuce!!! I also had a "fat" coffee (as I call it) before work with MCT Oil and butter (your probably going "yuk" right now but it's really nice...really haha) and started feeling a bit better after that. The nausea went away almost immediately after that although just the thought of having all that fat nearly made me sick but I just wanted to get back to normal asap. I usually have a lot of fat in my diet anyway which is normal for me so the coffee choice isn't unusual. Plus it was also the third day which was when I started feeling better after the first time. I didn't eat til lunchtime and I was good and hungry by then so I knew I was coming out of it. That nausea and trembling feeling is something I don't want ever again. I think after the workout and tearing down muscle tissue (which is a form of stress) and then not being able to hold the nutrients in for repair affected my nervous system. My theory only but to me it makes sense. Although Vitargo also comes in flavors I always get the Natural / Unflavored one so the barley is the only ingredient. As for there being something wrong with that particular batch, well, you be on to something there. Also I'm not knocking the product because as I said, I have used it before and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, I will never have it again. Cristiana, my last blood test revealed I had slight anaemia which really surprised me with the amount of red meat I've eaten during my life and the anxiety thing is also new as I'm usually a happy, positive person. Life is good but after this recent reaction I think it is an indirect cause of the glutening. I'm also surprised at how sensitive I've become to it and how quickly. Also what is DX? I also follow a FODMAP eating plan (I can give you more info if you haven't heard of it) which also eliminates certain foods. It's a plan directed mostly at IBS but is well worth looking into if you are suffering any gut health, digestion issues or any ailment you may have which you can't get to the bottom of. Broccoli was one of the foods which I have cut back on and I've eaten HUGE amounts of broccoli so it is a superfood for some but apparently not for others. (I even think I read somewhere it has MSG naturally in it) It's hard to find any bad articles on broccoli so this also really surprised me. It also answered a few other questions I had. Many, many thanks again to you both for your replies. It actually settled me just reading them. I'm glad I found these forums so I don't think i'll be a stranger around here for long.   Richard

      Okay, I get that you are not going to follow the advice from some stranger on the internet, but please read the links that I gave you.  Your doctor is not following the standard level of care.  I am dead serious.  I have Kaiser.  My own GP doesn't have a clue about celiac disease, but my Kaiser GI does.  Please, I urge you to get properly diagnosed.  All celiac testing requires you to be on a gluten diet.  If you go gluten free even for two weeks (it will take time to get the referral and appointment), it will mess up the tests.  Your GI will put you back on a gluten diet (called a gluten challenge) for 8 to 12 weeks.    Chances are (almost 100%) you will feel more miserable!  That will just delay your diagnosis.   Symptoms not bad you say?  I had pretty severe anemia, but no tummy issues.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back DOING NOTHING!  Yep, I have osteoporosis from undiagnosed celiac disease and I am an athlete!   Please take this seriously!    
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      Oh, you might learn how to tell if you had been glutened.  I just had anemia as my main symptom.  I did not have any tummy issues at all.  I was in shock when my doctor even suggested testing me for celiac disease!   Glutenings can vary as we are all different.  For some it is just a few days, others a few weeks and others months (that would be me).  My last official glutening as supported by follow-up antibody testing lasted for three months.  Guess what?  I had vomiting, abdominal pain, the works!  Funny how celiac disease can change and evolve over time.   Welcome to the forum!  Have some patience and learn all that you can.  The good news is that you can feel better and no medications are required!  
    • Confused
      Thank you for the information. I've been not sure if I should eat gluten or not right now. Dr. said I should watch what I eat when I emailed him the question. My symptoms aren't very bad (I understand that doesn't matter for celiac disease), so I can definitley tolerate the food. But I have been starving myself the last few days due to not knowing what the heck is going on. Thanks again.
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      If you did actually have celiac disease, it can take weeks, months and years to recover from some of your symptoms, especially neurological ones.   Best to get screened for celiac disease.  It's a simple blood test.  Any medical doctor can do it.  But a GI doctor is needed for a diagnosis, since an endoscopy is part of the diagnostic procedure.  BUT you have to be consuming gluten to get accurate results! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ Keep on researching.  I wish you well!

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
