I was a huge snacker, prior to October. I don't eat a traditional breakfast or lunch never did, loved my cookies and milk late night. We always have done whole foods for dinner and still continue. Most nights I'll skip the starch and make double vegetable and a salad with the protein. Milk is still an issue, so no more cookies and milk late night, also means no cream sauces.

I do enjoy Wise potato chip @ night. My deck draw is filled with chex's all kinds, pretzel sticks, crackers, shortbread cookies, dried cranberries, glazed nuts.

I have had Gluten Free Pantry, Brownies with added coconut oil (an added fat), and 1-2-3 Gluten Free Pan Bars, these were made for me. They can add the extra calories and fat your looking for. Good luck searching, try and stick to the whole foods and ones higher in fat and calorie content. They should help you with the weight gain.

Have you not tried the almond or hemp milks? They are delicious :)

Try some So Delicious Coconut milk. In the dairy section. Red Carton. Delicious with your cookies or cereal and works well in recipes and has tons of calcium. They make "ice cream" too! gluten-free, DF, and SF!

I'm also relatively new to gluten-free, I"ve only found a few things that i can have with no problems. Takes me about 20-24 hours to become sick after eating gluten and 6-7 days to get over the main effect, Flu like symptoms. Be very careful with packaged foods that say gluten free on them, seems some are not. You can try these one a day in small amount an see if they work for you.

Dukes mayonnaise, great on a banana

Kraft oriiginal bbq sauce, does wonders to baked dark meat chicken, seems for me white meat is a little hard to digest.

Kraft original ranch dressing, great for those baked chicken wings

enjoy life packaged foods i have not had any problems with, other than they can be a little hard to find.

I highly recommend before trying any new food doing a search on this forum for "gluten free (name of food you want to try)"

I think with any food moderation is the key....

I don't think that this is the problem so much as - what is the definition of gluten free? In the U.S. there is no definition yet, but a proposed definition is under 20 ppm. That isn't enough for all of us. http://www.fda.gov/downloads/Food/ScienceResearch/ResearchAreas/RiskAssessmentSafetyAssessment/UCM264152.pdf

I wish you the best finding safe foods for yourself. You may do better with items made in gluten free facilities.

    • Personally, I would ask for the full Celiac panel and see what that shows.  I mean, the full Monty, not just cherry picking testing.  On the full panel, if the tTg and the EMA come back positive, that is a diagnosis without biopsy.  This is how I was diagnosed and there is absolutely no doubt I have Celiac.  I presented with classic celiac so it was a no brainer with my blood results. If you cannot stick to the diet religiously, without cheating, unless you have a biopsy picture, then I would go on to have a biopsy.  Like your daughter, I was way too sick to have one done at the time.  They would not have agreed to use sedation because I was so anemic and malnourished and that ended that!  Good luck with whatever you decide!
    • This Asian-style barbeque chicken makes a great summer treat. Barbecue chicken is a perennial summer favorite around these parts, and this recipe delivers barbecue chicken with a decidedly Asian flare. View the full article
    • And as for the green stools, you said you eat a lot of kale and spinach?  A generous, daily diet of kale and spinach will be reflected in the bathroom.  You are what you eat.  
    • I just traveled three weeks this summer in Europe (Eastern).  Do not trust that the airlines will remember to load a gluten-free meal for you.  There is a 50-50 chance that they will not (in my experience).  We packed ONLY carry on.  Still found plenty of room to stash some emergency food.  You should be able to find food within an International airport.  Chips and typical junk food clearly labeled, even fruit.  Print or load Celiac travel cards with you in all the languages you will need.  They are free.  Google it.  Found these handy (not only in restaurants) but in the markets when we could not read labels but the staff could read them and Help us to make gluten-free choices.  amazing how you can communicate without knowing the language.  A few words like "thank you" in their language go along way (so does Google Translator).  Never met anyone who was not willing to help.   I carry a collapsible cooler that I pack with food and bags of ice to eat on then plane or right at my arrival or connection.  I take extra zip lock baggies with me.  Sometimes TSA will let you through if the ice is still hard (not melting).  Some will make you toss them then I just ask a restaurant to refill my ziplock baggies after passing Security.   I also carry a doctor's letter on my phone to show I am celiac, but no one has ever asked for me to present it.   Even though I carry a "third" piece of luggage on board, I have not been stopped.  Both that and my day backpack fit under the seat.  I use this cooler as needed through our trips.  If not, it fits in my backpack.  
    • Welcome, Kierra. You're only 15 so you need to make sure your parents are 100% aware of your medical issues so that they can advocate for you. It may or may not be celiac, but the only way to find out is to start with a full celiac blood panel, then an endoscope if necessary. However, for the tests to be accurate, you must consume gluten on a daily basis.
