Gluten/free Cookbooks

10 posts in this topic

Hi there I am looking for the names of some good gluten free/dairy free cookbooks. I want ones that are more geared towards dinner and lunch ideas and recipes. I have an almost three year old who is suspected Celiac, is getting much better since gluten free, but I am running out of ideas for meals especially because dairy really bothers him too. If anyone can give me the names of some good cookbooks I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Mya

Carol Fenster's "Gluten-free Quick and Easy" lists substitutes for ingredients to make the recipe Dairy-free. My son(11) likes the sorghum flour blend(that she uses) in baked goods. We use the pancake mix in the book, which adds convenience to my cooking for him. I don't know that all the recipes are palatable for a three year old, but three year olds differ in their palates. Anyway, you might want to check out her books and there are several. Are there specific type of products or recipes that you are looking for? Categories? snacks? breakfasts? etc. ? Maybe listing some would help us provide you with more recipes or sources. What kind of dishes or ingredients does you kiddo like? Many recipes can be adjusted to dairy-free with simple substitutes. Earthbalance Spread, tofu based "cheeses", coconut milk, almond or rice milk. Not all brands of these substitutes are gluten-free but there are many options out there. There are many, many blogs by moms with kids who are gluten-free/casein-free that are full of recipes.

We cook heaps of Indian & Sri Lankan, Balinese, Thai and Vietnamese, Middle Eastern etc meals. A number of the recipes are naturally gluten & dairy free and also very child friendly. Have a look via google you will be amazed.

We also cow dairy, gluten, yeast, preservative free etc in our house. I tend to replace dairy in recipes with stock, nut milk, coconut milk or pear juice depending on the recipe. I

I;m new to this and need help! I love to cook but the products in the co op or whole foods are so expensive and want to buy rice flour and such in bulk from the bins in the co op is that a bad idea? and what info can anyone give me because i am having a hard time finding these flours in the gluten-free sections they just have gluten-free flour and my cook book i bought calls for things separately

You're going to have to spend some money, unfortunately, for some of these flours but if you shop around you might be able to find them cheaper in some places than others. No, don't buy from bulk bins because someone could have used the wheat flour scoop in the rice flour which would make it no longer gluten-free. Rice flour can be found cheapest at Asian grocery stores. Some things are cheap on Am__azon if you can get the shipping price down. Many stores are now carrying Bob's Red Mill products, but the price varies. In many cases you could probably total up all the cups of different flours in a recipe and replace it with a premade gluten-free flour mix - just check to see whether you need to add xanthan gum (that's expensive but a little goes a long way and you will need it).

    • 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.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
