Brownies in the Raw

Ingredients

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa

1/2 cup walnut meal (plus more for coating)

1/4 cup honey (optional)

1/4 cup water (optional)

3. Lay on a plastic wrap lined cutting board and flatten a bit to make very small pancake shapes.

4. Store in a air-tight container in the fridge.

1/3 cup Braag's Amino Acids

Turn over, removing Teflex sheet or saran wrap, and dry for another 4-6 hours.

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. ;-) )

    • 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.
    • 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.
