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!

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
