Thanks so much. I have an anorexic, celiac friend with my same food intolerances (gluten/dairy/soy) whom I will send some of these easy recipes. She never learned to cook and needs to learn to prepare lots of nutritious foods in order to gain weight and recover. So I really appreciate your posting these recipes. ;)

BURDEE

PS What can we substitute for soy flour in the Hearty Pumpkin Bread recipe??

burdee - on the substitution, pretty much anything. I'd go with something denser - certainly not rice or potato - but I don't know if more nut flour would be too dense... I'd probably start with nut flour, then bean, then just use more sorgum or quinoa.

Thanks, Tiffany. I'll try increasing the almond flour and maybe more of one of the others you mentioned in the recipe. :)

Sun Dried Tomato Crackers

Ingredients

-----------

1/2 cup millet flour

1/2 cup quinoa flour

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

1 cup amaranth flour

1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

1 tbsp italian seasoning

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp salt

water, as needed

garlic salt

*note - the important flours here are the buckwheat and the amaranth. if you don't have the others, you can sub other gluten-free flours, but don't go with ones that are too heavy. brown rice would be a good option.

Directions

----------

0. preheat oven to 300F.

1. dice the sun-dried tomatoes finely.

2. in a large bowl, combine flours and spices, and mix to combine.

3. add the tomatoes and about a quarter cup of water, stir to incorporate all the water.

4. continue mixing and adding water, a teaspoon at a time, until you have a ball of dough - it should be slightly sticky to the touch, but otherwise very solid and not stick to your hands

5. in batches, roll the dough into a thin sheet (1/8th inch or less), and cut into small pieces and place on a non-stick cookie sheet.

6. sprinkle garlic salt on crackers, then put in the oven for 15 minutes.

7. turn crackers over, sprinkle on more garlic salt (patting down to make it stick), and put back in the oven for 10 minutes.

8. eat one while hot, allow the rest to cool and store in a plastic bag.

Fast Shrimp Soup (takes about 1 minute prep time, 20 minutes to cook unattended, and 3 minutes on the end - I make this when I get home late from yoga and want something healthy, high in protein, and easy to make - and that provides leftovers for lunch that can be eaten cold if I want)

Ingredients

-----------

1 box Imagine brand Chicken Broth

1 1lb bag of frozen, precooked shrimp, whatever size you like (you could use raw too, if shelled)

1 bag frozen butternut squash or yams (~12 oz)

a sprinkle of cayanne pepper, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and cumin

3 tbsp sweet rice flour

Directions

----------

1. Dump everything except the sweet rice flour into a pot and put the pot on medium low so it eventually comes to a simmer. Leave for 20 minutes.

2. In a glass, combine the sweet rice flour and a bit of water (around 1/3 cup), stir to combine and then mix into the pot.

3. Stir well, and let simmer for another 3 minutes.

4. Eat!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Kept in the fridge, and covered, they'd probably last two or three weeks at the least, and a few months at the most. (Most of my dressings are rather heavy on the vinegar, which keeps things from growing. ;-) )

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      It is overwhelming at first but step by step you will begin to find food you like - new naturally gluten free 'clean' food you have never tried before, or gluten free substitutes that taste  almost as good or just as good as the food you miss.   Someone told me one just get used to gluten free bread in the end.  But there are some on the market that are so convincing now they have even fooled my gluten eating family.   (On the subject of bread, one useful tip someone gave me early on is if one toasts gluten free bread it tastes much better.  Others may disagree but I think it does - but you will need your own gluten free toaster.... )   I am also finding that as time goes on there seems to be more and more on offer for us in the shops.  The annoying thing here in the UK is one supermarket does superb ready meals for example, another does great gluten free bread, and another sells delicious gluten free Worcestershire Sauce, but it is hard to find one that sells everything you need under one roof at times.   I don't know if it is like that where you live but if it is like this you will get wise to it and end up getting used to stocking up when the opportunity presents itself. Eating out is often challenging but after not eating out for a while when I was healing I have now found a few restaurants, and a couple are chains, that I can trust.     Lastly, it is always good to have some gluten free snacks - fruits, nuts, bars etc, at the ready when the hunger pangs strike and there is nothing there for you.  I still forget and today went to a museum with my son and had to watch him in the cafe eat his cheese and ham toastie and all I had was a cup of tea!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here. 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      The way to fix food intolerance symptoms is to stop eating the food causing the symptoms.  Dark Angel is right, there are very few tests for food intolerances.  Mostly we have to test ourselves through diet experiments.  Typically an elimination diet of some sort is used.  Eliminating food groups is one way, or cutting back to just a few foods and building from there is another.  Changing your diet is the way to go.
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Hi akohlman, It is quite an adjustment.  But it isn't a bad change.  While you have to give up some foods you may also end up finding other foods you really enjoy.  And most likely you will be eating a more nutritious, healthier diet than many of your friends do. Try to stick to whole foods you cook at home for a while.  If you want to eat out you can take food with you, or spend some time on the web searching out gluten-free restaurants on your area.  But to get started learning, it is best to cook you own food.  Meat, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit should be the main foods you eat.  Maybe dairy will work for you, maybe not. It can take months for the immune reaction to stop and your body to heal enough to absorb nutrients properly.  It is good to get your vitamin and mineral levels checked so you know which might be low.  Even a tiny crumb of gluten can make us sick.  Cross contamination is a real problem.  And since the immune reaction doesn't stop when the food leaves your body, you have to be careful what you eat/drink.  But after you have been doing the gluten-free diet a while you get used to eating different and it becomes the new normal.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
