Incredibly delicious Welsh Rarebit. For those of you who are unfamiliar, it is basically thick toast covered with a mixture of cream, eggs and cheese that is melted on top until ooey gooey. Then it is drizzled with Worcestershire. First I will spread the bread with bacon jam to kick up the flavour even more. Traditionally it contains Guiness.

Dirty rice (white rice and sausage), a cup of chicken broth, homemade pickles. It's not much, but it's totally safe for me to eat. Later I'll have a coconut Zing bar. :)

Creamy chicken soup and a bagel with cream cheese.

Where do you find the soup & bagels that are gluten free? I am new to this & am diagnosed as allergic to all of it. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I almost panicked. I got to my fridge and was all set to make a sandwich and there was NO MAYO! I quickly chilled out, remembering I have a recipe stashed, whipped some up in a few minutes and was stuffing my face with a Lebanon bologna sandwich in no time. Yup, homemade mayo for a bologna sandwich.

I don't buy soup, I make it. You'll find recipes all over the internet. Just decide what kind of soup makes you happy and you can almost certainly find a recipe for it. (Unless it is barley soup, then you're just outta luck.) As for bagels, I imagine lots of people just make them. I've seen them in the freezer at the health food store but my guess is that they suck and I'm not going to pay something like $7 for 5 bagels that suck.

Like Adalaide, I make the soup. I am lucky to have a gluten free bakery that makes a great bagel substitute - I probably prefer it to gluten bagels. :)

For those of us who occasionally like to open a can of soup instead of making it:

Note that this is in the US, These products in Canada may have different ingredients

I have heard that some like Udis bagels , which many Whole Foods and other groceries carry, either frozen or on the shelf.

I'm trying to expand my horizons for lunch. Especially since I am charged with feeding an ever increasingly picky toddler. <_< (Although I have discovered he will always eat his veggies if I give them to him while I make the rest of lunch. Hunger always overrides being picky!)

Today I made my first buckwheat pancakes. My grammy used to make them for me every Saturday morning, but hers always were a whole wheat, buckwheat mix. Still, these brought back memories and were super delicious. I was thrilled that Mr. Pickypants liked them too. I scrambled some eggs for the boys and had just a little bit of one myself. Then I chopped up a jicama. I never had one before, but I rather like them. My husband isn't a fan (shocker) but the kiddo seems to like it okay. They look so boring in the store, and just as boring cut up, the taste and texture was a really pleasant surprise.

Spice-rubbed fried chicken thighs (using cumin, coriander and paprika) on rice, topped with avocado and a squirt of lemon juice. Still feeling a bit hungry so I might have to snack on some cashew nuts until dinner time. :P

Plain Greek yogurt with sliced fruit, a drizzle of honey and unsalted sunflower seeds. I use yogurt all the time as a substitute for sour cream. Dear other can't tell the difference. (A dallop on soup or baked potato, on top of nachos, in pancakes. And the d dog loves any leftovers.

Simply the way you peel and slice the oranges without any skin - they sorta look like mandarin segments only bigger. ;)

Vanilla French Toast with my homemade bread and my homemade vanilla extract (with bourbon). Could have been worse! :lol: As bread is a rare treat for me, I seriously enjoyed it.

    • Hi, Ok good advice and I am sincere when I say how much I appreciate a lot of the responses, advice and encouragement that have been posted here. I'm not sure what a nutrionist is but a dietician (here in the U.K.) is a heavily regulated medical profession and my dietician is based most of her week in a hospital where doctors and MD's as they are known refer patients to her for help. She works every day with celiacs, dh sufferers and people with crohns, ibs etc and seeing my skin, listened to what I was saying (particularly about how my redness and blisters resolved on a gluten free (though not wheat free) diet for several years, and sent a report to my doctor/MD requesting a battery of tests - tests that can indicate dh, celiac and associated complications. I also have a friend with a wheat allergy and two with celiac (all diagnosed) and they are encouraging me to go ahead with getting these particular tests. So that's great but reading the above quote that suggests that situations like sharing an oven used to cook gluten-containing pizza, should not cause a gluten reaction. I thought, my god what's the point of going through these tests if my recent reactions aren't actually to do with gluten. Although my dietician is concerned about possible dh and has been through years of medical school, I also really trust the advice of an advanced member on this site and if they think oven-sharing shouldn't cause any gluten reaction, what hope do I have with an MD? It has taken me years to pluck up the confidence to ask for any medical help because I feared that sort of response along with a focus on psychological issues and hormones etc early on in the thread (even though, I only started feeling depressed since yesterday). Actually, I'm a mental health nurse so it's good to see people are alert to these issues but I am also pretty familiar with depression and I know that many people with physical health problems are fobbed off by doctors with talk of depression, stress, and hormones. I'm sorry that I took the (above) quote to heart and I know that I allowed that to colour my perception of the whole thread, which has been helpful in many ways. Best wishes to you all, even those I didn't agree with! Rhian 
    • I thought maybe doing a trial period to see if he reacts positively to being gluten free and then adding it back to see if symptoms come back would maybe be helpful to the doctor? But I guess that's true, it might skew things regarding any future tests that might be warranted. 
    • If you haven't had her tested yet please do not go gluten free. Get the celiac testing first as if she does feel better gluten free when she has to go back on gluten for testing she may have much worse symptoms.  There will also be a higher risk of false negatives.
    • I did not mean to imply that you should put him on a gluten free diet.    If you suspect a problem with gluten, please get an opinion from a GI who is celiac savvy.  All celiac testing requires a patient to be consuming gluten.  The slightly equivocal TTG?  That warrants a gene test at the very least.   http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf
