What Do You Miss?

123 posts in this topic

I am really missing pizza, after a few years of no dairy and no tomatoes. I could probably manage to make and allergen-free crust but what to put on it? All the cheese alternatives are out due to other allergens-soy and tapioca. No nightshades so no red pepper sauce. No matter what it would be more of a foccacia than a pizza. I could make an olive an rosemary foccacia but just not the same without a gooey or saucy element. Some kind of dipping sauce for my foccacia? maybe a balsamic and oil might be ok but still not pizza.

Grilled cheese. Okay, so sure I can get a knife, fight with a frozen loaf of Udi's for 5 minutes trying to pry 2 slices off, then defrost it, then slap together a sandwich. But frankly, it just isn't the same.

I totally get the Pop Tarts thing. My husband walked in with a box of some new tropical flavored ones about a week ago. "Oh, you wouldn't have liked them anyway." Really? Hi, have we met? Tropical fruit? omg yes please! I was tempted to beat him senseless with the box.

Had to really laugh out loud at the Udi's comment. Did this just the other day, I thought, let me grab a piece of toast on my way out, opened the bag could not get a single slice, put it back in the freezer and grabbed a rice cake.

And I applaud your restraint with not beating your husband senseless :)

Ditto on the frozen bread ordeal. I actually had to get stitches in my thumb one Thanksgiving from trying to separate the slices. All I wanted was to make some breadcrumbs!

I think the thing I miss the most is perogies!

I've made a perogi casserole which is mashed potatoes layered with cheese and lasagna noodles which is totally yummy...but not exactly the same...

I tried making my own perogies also...but the dough is pretty hard to work with to get them to stay together...:S

Good news! Simona posted a pierogis recipe in the recipe section! Check it out:

You know, guys....I read through this whole thread (and felt a little bit sad, truth be told) but I also realized there is almost always a "plan B" for most of these foods and ways to make them taste good.

I have to say that I completely agree with meatball man's statement--he said he misses the convenience of eating whatever he wants, wherever he wants. That's what I miss, too. It is hard for a major foodie (as I once once)to give up tasting everything from the simple to the exotic with reckless abandon and then coming home to recreate it. I miss the spontaneity of just getting in the car and eating at cozy diners on back country roads while we are out taking photographs. We need a chain of "gluten free eateries" to spring up across the country and we'll all be golden. B)

That's it. That's what I miss the most. :(

Just wondering....um, where is the original poster?

Chef??

Are you coming back? You have not been back since this first post.

These sweet people have poured their hearts out telling you what they miss.

Hello?? :blink:

Hi Scott,

What's the best dish that you cook? Do you share any of your recipes?

He hasn't been back since Oct. This forum doesn't allow advertising in posts so perhaps there is no point for him to come back and try to sell us a book or something else.

Seitan. I can make/find gluten free versions of anything else. But seitan is basically pure gluten :(

That's OK. We can talk to each other. Maybe someone will see what we miss and have a recipe for us. Like the pirogies the other day.

I miss...homebaked bread with a thick slice of sharp cheddar cheese. This was my total comfort food/dish.

The first thing that comes to mind is pizza, I really loved bagel bites and seriously ate those like every day. Also beef jerky, I haven't been able to find a gluten free beef jerky, not sure if there are any or not but that's a bummer.

I started another tread with a similar question not knowing that this one existed click here to visit mine if you like though I will continue to check this thread to as it has a large number of ideas on it already as well.

Pizza, pizza, pizza!! I was missing it before (good, greasy, NY style pizza), but now that I am mostly grain free/sugar free as well, I miss all things carbohydrate. Even the gluten-free alternatives!! Making mac n' cheese with quinoa pasta was one of my treat foods - now I can't have that. For awhile, I was only allowing myself carbs a couple times per week - but that's a slippery slope. Once you start to eat them, you can't stop. Why do our bodies crave things that aren't good for us? Why can't I be an asparagus addict or something? Hopefully once I get my latest issues in check, I can have a heart to heart with my willpower and allow myself the occasional carbohydrate treat.

I'm veggie and gluten/wheat free. I really miss a nice veggie 'sausage' for a sandwich. :rolleyes:

Arabic sweets like Baklawa, Zeinab's Fingers, Knafe

Nutella

ravioli

Anything made with puff-pastry

I can make a pretty decent crusty pizza and amazing fried chicken or fish so those I don't miss!

I'm gonna cry lol :-)

I drooled, but I also cried. And I wondered why he asked us to spill our guts like that (just to be cruel? :o ) gee, I hope not!

But as Karen pointed out, by reading through it, I could point someone to a recipe on here that she could use because she missed pierogies.

And maybe others will see something they can link to as well.

So, it has a purpose after all. :)

You can make Nutella:

I believe Nutella is gluten-free, anyway.

You can also make ravioli. A few of us here make our own pasta and love it! That way you can fill the ravioli with whatever you like. :P

Nutella is most definitely gluten free! And there are many donut recipes out there.

I hear that. <_<

Since freshly made squishy french bread and ANY cheese are my top two favorite food groups--I find gluten-free and dairy free living to be the ultimate cosmic "screw you" :lol:

I mean, if only celiac were caused by something like fried livers or snails or fava beans for example, I would be the happiest celiac on the planet. :lol:

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
