This Girl Needs Some Ideas

I'm starving.

OK, we have done the gluten-free before - it was OK. We just got test results back and need to be strict gluten-free again. That also included no shellfish, no milk products, no eggs, no peanuts, no almonds, and none of the gluten products including oats. We haven't even got all the kid's results back in yet. I'm pretty must used to a diet of eggs, oats and peanut/nuts so my snackie standbys are gone.

What about other nuts and seeds?

Lunch meat, popcorn (son loves that), smoothies (make a bunch and freeze), fruit, veggies.

Look for gluten-free recipes on Pinterest. You'll find lots of bloggers that way. Lots of ideas.

There's even a chocolate chip cookie dough recipe using beans. And tgey say it's good. It's on my "too weird not to try" list.

I was shocked, but my local Wal-Mart is carrying a few Enjoy life products at very reasonable prices. Their snacks are produced in a dedicated facility, are palatable (I'm picky, so take that with a grain of salt, some of them have been downright good) and they are all free of the 8 top allergens.

It had been awhile since I'd shopped there and didn't have a cart. I ended up carrying everything I could hold in my arms to the check out.

For snacks, if you can tolerate bean dips, you can make hummus from chick peas or cannelloni beans for dipping with fresh veggie sticks or corn chips (if you can handle corn).

If you can grow your own basil (it just takes a small pot and some sunlight and water), you can make your own nutfree pesto. That's great on a gluten-free pizza crust with olive oil or spread on a piece of gluten-free ham and rolled up. I love Against the Grain Bagels, they don't need butter, love them with strawberry jam or a variety of toppings (for special occasions, smoked salmon and capers). Against the Grain's website has a vendor locator, but do follow their advice and call first.

Sometimes I nuke a pre-roasted sweet potato for a snack and it's just right.

I make buckwheat pancakes and freeze some for snacks. You can nuke those briefly (or toast them) and have them with fresh fruit and maple syrup. I can tolerate them with eggs, but you can use an egg substitute.

Good luck, hope that helps.

And you might be able to tolerate cashews and macadamia nuts, they're from a different food family than nuts.

I'n nut, soy,tomato, gluten-free oats and gltuen free of course. I eat very little milk products. I eat veggies and fruit a lot that I can handle. I've found two natural lines of dressings I use, if you're interested I'll let you know, without the bottle in front of me, I'd misspell.

I eat humus spread on rice cakes. Carrot sticks dipped in a few things. Pickles...Sometimes a chip I can have and popcorn. Some all natural fruit sticks and gummies. I found a cracker by cruchmaster that is nut free. I also think of half a sandwich if you can tolerate what the bread is made of. Soup is also another snack idea. I no longer think of a snack as the "typical" snack food. I've seen alot of dairy free, nut free recipes on Pinterst lately.

Good luck to you!

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
