Gluten Free Menu
0

4 posts in this topic

My dream is for someone to figure out a clear and well balanced satisfying Daily Gluten Free menu. Even if only for a week. One that covers the food groups and yet keeps the calories within reason.

Is that possible? Especially if one seems to be sensitive to milk products and maybe potatos.

It is possible if you put your favourites in. Make snacks fruit or veggies and add as many veggies to your main dishes as you can.

I eat a lot of chicken because it's easy and you can do a lot with it...check with the salad dressing and barbeque dressing labels but my favorite are marinading chicken in italian dressing, honey bbq sauce, lemon juice, or just seasonings like rosemary, thyme, basil, stuff like that.

you can put that on a salad with things like onions, peppers, cucumbers, and craisons.

you can also get rice pasta and make shells and sauce with chicken on the side, or make meatballs without breadcrumbs for that.

i live on peanut butter, whether i'm eating it with celery, rice crackers, or just by itself it's quick, easy and healthy.

almonds are also really good, i have a big 10lb bag from BJs Wholesale and I bring baggies of them around with me.

I'm on the run a lot during the day so I try to have a really big breakfast that can hold me over as long as possible.

Eggs are always a good choice, and you can do a lot with them as well. fried, poached, hard boiled, and omlettes with whatever you want in them- tomatoes, cheese (cabot brand has the lactase enzyme added in if you're dairy sensitive), chives, spinach, etc.

i also like to make fruit smoothies in the morning or when i get back from the gym, i get frozen fruit like strawberries and blueberries and add some lactaid milk and throw it in a blender. it's healthy and fills you up.

red meat is always good if you eat that, although it is expensive. i get frozen cheeseburgers and put cabot cheese on them every once in a while, or i'll marinade steak in italian dressing.

if you can have potatoes then french fries are a good snack when you're craving something not wicked healthy, i either get them frozen and bake them or i make them myself. baked potatoes with simply smart dairy/gluten free butter and salt and pepper or dairy free sour cream is always good and filling.

i'm not a big veggie person, but i'm trying to be one. broccoli is my favorite, but i'm trying to like green beans as well. buy a bag of baby carrots and bring that with you for a snack.

i hope this helps!

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
