Soup?

I'm not having very much luck with Gluten free soups. I tried the "Imagine" soup in the resealable bottles. Most of them are terrible. The only one I liked was the butternut squash.

Anyone know of some soups that actually have some flavor to them??

I love both the Garden Tomato and Creamy Tomato Imagine soups. It's at least what I remember Campell's being like.

I'm currently eating some Gluten Free Cafe chicken noodle soup (woke up with the start of a cold this morning) and it's not bad (mind you, I always add my own pepper and sometimes hot sauce to most soups). I do not know how they kept the rice noodles from turning to mush, but they somehow did.

Soup is also one of the easiest things to make, and to make gluten-free. Make sure any broth or boullion is gluten-free (I love Kitchen Basics broths).

Thai noodle soup bowls are another good option (check the ingredients!) if you have access to near-boiling hot water to steep the noodles in. I always have a couple of those stashed around at work for "emergency" lunches. That and some canned tuna are very good in a pinch.

I like Amy's Organic soups, and some of them are gluten-free. They were about the only ones I could find when I was just avoiding wheat and corn that had at least 2 or 3 flavors that met those requirements. I just looked at a can of Tuscan bean & rice soup and it does indeed say gluten-free, also.

I love the Progresso soups Kareng mentioned. It was my favorite brand before I went gluten-free.

I make my own always have, I can control the sodium that way. If you have the time you can whip up a pot or two on the weekend and freeze individual servings. Just had minestrone for lunch today. I've always used the tiny shells for pasta when I needed pasta. Try the corn pasta (if you can have corn)they hold up better then rice.

Brittany, while there are some soups that are okay, the absolute best ones are those you make yourself. Do you have a crockpot? If so, you could cut up ingredients the night before, stick them in the fridge and then put them in a crockpot in the morning and when you get home, you'll have a delicious gluten-free soup ready for you. And depending on what you put in it, many freeze extremely well. There's nothing like a stash in the freezer for those days you absolutely don't feel like cooking.

I am also interested in making some homemade gluten-free, df, corn free, soy free soups. Do you have any recommendations or recipes of soups that you have made? I don't currently own a crock pot, so I've never made any soups in a crock pot, but I am going to buy one. Any homemade recipes would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! :D

We make our own as well. Stock is always on hand and that makes it REALLY easy to whip up a variety of soups at the drop of a hat.

I have been eating Campbell's Chunky Soup Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. Its one of the few that are gluten free in that line. They also have Ham and Split Pea.

Be aware that Campbell's in Canada has gluten free versions of some soups. In the US they don't. Read the labels!

I love making chicken soup, although I am in search of a good soup noodle. When I wasn't feeling well a few weeks ago I dragged my husband to the store to hunt decent soup with me. I picked up a couple of cans of Wolfgang Puck soup, and while I don't remember which ones they were I can say they were delicious. If I remember correctly all of the soups are gluten free and organic. If you do make your own chicken soup I highly recommend using tarragon, it gives an amazing flavor that just can't be beat.

I like the Schar's Tagliatelle (sp?) noodles for noodle soup. They are thin and slurpy.

A quick 1/2 hour soup and freezes well. I use corn pasta and cook very al dente, otherwise it will mushup when you reheat.

Spinach, Celery, Sausage and Pasta Soup

16 oz sausage links ( I use chicken sausage)

6 Cups chicken stock (Kitchen Basics gluten-free) I use low sodium

2 - 14 oz diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano

2 - Cups thinly sliced celery include leaves

2 grated carrots

Salt & Pepper to taste

10-12 oz bag baby spinach

Optional:

grated Parmesan Reggiano Cheese

Chiffonade Basil

Heat 1 T olive oil in soup pot over medium heat. Remove casings from sausage and add to pot, stirring to crumble for 10 minutes, add celery and saute for 2 - 3 minutes.

Add stock, tomatoes, grated carrots S & P to taste and bring to simmer, add pasta cook till pasta is al dente. Remove from heat and add spinach till wilted. Serve with cheese and basil if desired.

This freezes well and you'd never know it had been frozen.

I've been using canned Goya for my Minestrone and have had no episodes, I use to make many other soups with dried bagged beans but have not done so because I'm afraid to use the bagged beans. If anyone has found dried gluten-free beans that work for them please share. I miss my 16 bean soup as well as the Black Bean Soup.

Nothing like a great hot soup on a cold winter day.

    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
