Finding The Right Bread...
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi

I have just been diagnosed with celiac disease. I am 20 years old, and I am trying different foods, and trying to cope with this.

My hardest food to find is bread. I am already a picky eater as it is, and I like just normal white bread. Well now I can't have bread at all. I have tried the brown rice bread and tapiocca bread, I didn't really care for either of them. They are both thick, and have a spongy feeling to them, and I am on medicine that makes my mouth dry, so its even harder trying to eat this bread. Does anybody know of any kind of bread that just taste like white bread, and isn't real thick and spongy??

I keep seeing the bread that you can make yourself, does anybody know is that worth trying?

Well if anybody has any suggestions please let me know!

Thanks!!

Kim

there is one i particularly like. its kinnikinnick quick bread mix. it is very easy! 3parts mix with 2 parts liquid. stir well and bake. and its probably the best i have tried. others i like are pamela's bread mix and gluten free pantry sandwich bread. both of those taste good and have a decent texture. i like these better than prepackaged breads

there are good recipes out there... i, however, have not yet been able to bake one i was content with. in time though i hope to learn to do this more successfully. i hope you find one you like though!

I haven't tried/looked for store bread since the beginning of being Gluten Free. I haven't found a store bread that I cared for.

I like Gluten Free Pantry Bread Mixes, they are good. The Sandwich bread mix is good for everyday stuff. They also have a French bread mix that you can do bread or pizza crust with.

Lately I've stopped with the bread mainly b/c I don't have time to make it. My sub for bread is the Mission White Corn Tortillas. I heat them up on the stove in a pan (brown each side a little so it doesn't break). I make taco shaped wraps with these, peanut butter/jelly and fold in half, taco meat etc. The tortillas are easy to make stuff with plus they are inexpensive and in any grocery store.

A lot of it is trial and error with what you like the taste of.

Good Luck

Hi guys!

Thank you! That sounds good. I will try those ideas! I think I will get the sandwhich bread mix too, and the tortilla's! Thanks! will let you guys know how it taste!

I know this is very tricky, and it is basically everything is pretty much experimental I have learned. Also being living at home still it is very hard that the whole house is like gluten gluten gluten, and here I have to be gluten free.

I have found great cereals, and pasta, and things like that, but that is about it.

Well I am going to go now. Talk to you gusy soon, once again thanks for everything!

I just stopped eating bread all together, personally.

Sorry that's probably not much help, lol.

I find that most baked flour goods irritate me. I'm not completely

intolerant to them, but my body doesn't like them much. I eat mostly

rice, raw produce, beans, meat, and a little bit of cheese.

The following is a link to the recipe for my favorite gluten free bread from Gluten Free Girl. (I hope the link copies, I'm not very good at this!) It's also a favorite of the non-gluten-free members of my family -- they start eating it as soon as it comes out of the oven!

http://glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com/2008/11...wich-bread.html

I have made a lot of gluten free bread from mixes and recipes. To me, this is by far the best. The recipe is long and intimidating at first; but, after making it a couple of times it's not a big deal. Usually, I make a double batch, slice it, and freeze it. Then I can just toast for sandwiches, breakfast, etc.

Also, I just got a bread machine and Annalise Robert's cookbook "Gluten Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine". I have made several bread machine loaves using her recipes. All very quick, easy and great taste and texture. My non-gluten-free 4-year-old still refers to the Gluten Free Girl recipe as "the real bread", though.)

Good luck!

I have to be careful of sunflower/safflower oils and the only kind I've tried so far is the millet bread (food of the earth I think) its pretty good, WAY too many calories, but good. I usually eat one slice since each slice is 100 calories.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
