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.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
