A Couple Of Days Of Disappointments
0

11 posts in this topic

I went to the grocery store a couple of days ago, and found tortillas by TIFCO that appeared to be gluten-free. (They make the tortilla chips that I love!) So I eagerly bought them. When I went to eat one .... I couldn't finish it. It was so BAD-tasting that I couldn't bring myself to eat it.

*sigh*

This morning, I tried Bob's Red Mill buckwheat hot cereal, as a former oatmeal-lover who was missing hot cereal. So very, very bad. I couldn't finish it. Drowning it in milk and brown sugar did not disguise the taste at all.

So I'm very sad. I'm not sure which is worse - probably the buckwheat, as it cost more.

Does anyone know of a different oatmeal-replacement? Another grain, perhaps, with a less-strong flavour? If I dump anymore brown sugar on this cereal it's not longer going to be a "healthy choice." Arg!

Grits or polenta and I have also found cream of rice.

Bob's Mighty Tasty Hot cereal is a blend of grains and not strong tasting IMO. The corn and sorghum in it are mild and sweet. There are instant certified gluten-free oats packets available.

I prefer cream of rice or grits. I also have quinoa flakes that are pretty good. I don't love the texture but the taste is ok. You could try gluten free oats and see how well you tolerate them.

I go with Pocono Cream of Buckwheat, it has a creamy texture and very mild flavor compared with even their buckwheat 'kasha' which is more chunky and has a stronger flavor. Cream of Rice is okay also.

I second Pocono Cream of Buckwheat. It's so good with milk and fresh blueberries or strawberries. I eat this about two times a week :)

Are you unable to tolerate oats? I thought I couldn't eat them until I learned about all the wheat in regular oatmeal and tried the Bob's Red Mill gluten-free oats. I also eat cream of rice and grits.

I like Bob's Mighty Tasty hot cereal too - just over a cup of boiling water, stir in 1/4 cup of the stuff & simmer for 5 minutes, stir in an egg until it's cooked & add dried cranberries & walnuts....mmmm..... :D

I like Arrowhead Mills Organic Rice & Shine. It's a brown rice hot cereal. I usually add golden raisins to it. :)

I actually don't know about oats. I haven't had them since going gluten-free 7 months ago. I've heard about the gluten-free ones but I haven't seen them. The local stores carry Bob's Red Mill products (that's where I got the buckwheat) but I don't know if they don't carry the gluten-free oats or I just haven't seen them. I'll take another look.

Thanks to everyone for their ideas. I certainly miss hot cereal, and would love to find one that didn't taste like tree bark. (Yes, I do eat a lot of tree bark, thanks for asking ... :P)

Considering what this nasty buckwheat cost me, I'm still going to have to use it up though. Does it have any other uses? Can I used it as a rice side dish and load it with spices? Can I put it in soup? If I make it for breakfast and smother it in jam, can I still feel good about it being "healthy" ???!!

Does anyone know where you can find Rice and Shine??? I have heard great things and I too miss my morning oatmeal. I live in Southern Ontario, but do visit the States occassionally. Also, does anyone know if they cell Rice Chex in Canada?

Thanks!

Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol

    • 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?
