Discovering New Gluten Free Foods
0

13 posts in this topic

Celiac is is far cry from anything to celebrate but the ~Scavenger~hunt for Gluten Free foods does have the element of thrill to it when I make a new discovery of allowed foodage. Lays stackers and all the possibilities with Gluten-Free Betty Crocker mixes [brownies,choc chip cookies,peanut butter brownies made from cookie mix, carrot cake & pineapple upside down cakes made from yellow mix], does give me a tiny joy of sorts.

Also tried Udi`s bread toasted with orange marlalade yum, and dug around internet and found site with great recipes: better than any off-the-shelf-glute-free Flour is this "Master Mix Flour" [ 1 cup tapioca flour & 2 C. potato starch or potato flour & 6 Cups white or brown rice flour+Mix and store airtight rubbermade. Also tip for Croutons=with Cean new kitchen scissors cut Gluten free bread into tiny cubes and cover with own mix olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder,, parsley salt pepper on cookie sheet and bake low slow like you would party mix. And my fave is a gluten free Cream Soup Base [1 tsp chicken flavor boullion,2T cornstarch, 1 Cup Milk or rice/coconut/almond Milk, 2 Tb. butter, 1/2 tsp salt, blend and if want as soup add 1 cupwater, & your choice diced cooked chicken , celery, diced mushrroms, drained canned tiny shrimp, and there you have several varieties of Cream Soups for all you campbell sauce recipes over meats and casseroles. I will not Starve going Gluten Free and on the other hand I would live on green beans if that`s what it takes to get better from hideous celiac disease. Terri

Wow! Great ideas! You know, you can also make chex mix gluten-free... Just omit wheat chex and increase rice and corn chex to offset. Use gluten-free worcestershire sauce, Glutino or Snyders gluten-free pretzels, and rice cracker bits instead of bagel bites. Instead of "season salt", I use an organic herb blend called Herby (Frontier Organics, gluten-free). Other than these substitutions, just follow the original chex party mix recipe. It's awesome! And you can serve it at parties and no one's the wiser!

I love finding great gluten-free foods, too! But even more, I love finding ones that totally make a lie out of "you poor thing! That's such a restrictive diet! You have to give up so much!" ... Yeah, right! The only things I've given up are diarrhea, gas, bloating, fatigue, nausea, mood swings.... Ha ha ha!!! :D

I know, it's kind of fun to find and try new stuff!!

Speaking of Chex mix, Gltuen- Freely just posted a link to this recipe on their Facebook page: http://firebear.wordpress.com/2010/03/31/gluten-free-white-trash/

It looks sooo good! you could probably use Honey Nut and/ or Cinnamon Chex in place of the Rice or Corn Chex :). Or, of course, there's 'Muddy Buddies' (I'd have to look up the recipe for that one)

(just looked at my boxes of Chex (I got a bunch on sale last week), and some of the boxes have the recipe for Muddy Buddies printed on the side, so here goes)

Muddy Buddies

Prep Time: 15 mins

Start to finish: 15 mins

9 cups Rice, Corn or Chocoalte Chex (or Combination)

1 cup semi- sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup margarine

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.

2. in 1- qt microwaveable bowl, microwave choclate chips, peanut butter & butter uncovered on high, 1 minute, stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer, or until mixture can be stirred smooth. stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2- gallon reseable food- storage plastic bag.

3. Addpowdered sugar. seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator [assuming it lasts long enough to get to make it into the refrigerator! :rolleyes::P:D:lol::ph34r::o ]

18 servings (1/2 cup each)

Schar crackers! I love them. They are a bit brittle but taste wonderful. I like Pamela's chocolate chip cookies, too.

Daiya brand is the favorite type of Gluten-free Casein-free cheese for most everyone I know. It's soy free too, which Tofutti isn't. It's what places like Mellow Mushroom use commercially when they tout vegan cheese options.

Whenever a recipe calls for bread crumbs I use crushed up Rice Works Gourmet Brown Rice Crisps. I find them at CostCo they are in a blue bag.

I just crush them up and use the crumbs for things like meatloaf, chicken fried steak, stuffed mushrooms, chicken parmesan, meatballs, etc.

They are good alone so you don't need to add much salt, just some pepper or herbs if you want.

I recently discovered "Simplebites Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies" from Pamela's Products at the local Fry's supermarket. They're not cheap, but man, are they delicious! :)

I love finding new gluten free things especially at a normal grocery store. Although, I still have to be careful about that because a couple of times grocery stores I've been to put their gluten free products next to the organic products and I have grabbed those instead of the gluten free ones. But it does seem that more and more grocery stores are carrying gluten free products which is great.

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
