Gf Thanksgiving Dinner
0

9 posts in this topic

This post is especially for the newbie people trying to go gluten-free. I was diagnosed in December of 2002. I already was soy limited due to my long history of hypothroidism plus add gluten-free/Casein free. PHEW!!!

This past thanksgiving meal I cooked for 11 people. Nine people do not have any dietary restrictions. My husband should be gluten-free but cheats. Of course, I obstain from Gluten like the plague.

My mom brought the stuffing and pumpkin pie. I made delicious gluten-free biscuits from Pamela's pancake mix. Turkey, gluten-free gravy, very delicious. Biscuits (not gluten-free)Cranberries, mashed potatoes, sweet, sweet potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise sauce, and a green bean casserole(which was not gluten-free). Finally, I made a gluten-free apple crisp which I loved. I did put gluten-free ice cream on top!! Yummy!!

What is the most exciting is that my body is more tolerant of the casein than it has been in the past. I make a point to only eat the casein on special occasions.

It was a HAPPY THANKSGIVING THIS YEAR!

Yep, I made the whole meal gluten-free/CF/VLF (that last one is VLF), and while it was tricky and my husband still can't stand the aftertaste of gluten-free flours (hence he didn't like the pie), it was considered tasty by everyone. I only wish I could eat all the pie at once without blowing my diet! ;-)

I ate mashed potatos with butter only, sweet potatos, turkey that was the furthest from the stuffing and while everyone else was having pie, I made a desert that was sugar walnuts, ice cream, choclate syrup and whipping cream. Now I am sick but don't know why. I was so proud of myself because my mom makes the very best dinner rolls I have ever had and I picked one up when nobody was watching but put it back down. I decided cheating was not worth it. The problem is I am sick and I wonder if it was the jerkey I ate on the way down. I had read on a post in here it was ok but then after I ate it I noticed it was smoked. Could that of done it? ;)

Thanks

My bet would go on the turkey that was cooked with the stuffing. CONTAMINATION!!!! Never eat turkey that is cooked with stuffing.

Are you saying that even though the turkey I ate never touched the turkey it could still have gluten? I am so confused because I thought that as long as my food didn't touch the stuffing it would be ok?

What is the best thing to do when I go to realtives houses for dinner?

If you are eating turkey that was cooked with stuffing inside of the bird, you are asking for trouble.

Ok, Thanks Jessica

I guess it wouldn't of made a difference then if I had eaten that roll! I don't really mean that, it's just sometimes I wish I could eat all of the foods I miss most. I used to love to bake and cook and it seems that I don't have the energy for cooking anymore. When I do it never tastes the same. Guess I am just feeling sorry for myself now. :unsure:

Let's say you're stuffing a bird. You grab a handful of stuffing with one hand, and hold onto the turkey with the other, and shove it in. As the bird gets full, you may use both hands to get the stuffing inside the turkey. Then you hold the turkey again on another handful. Bingo - stuffing on the turkey, where you might eat it.

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
