Hi everyone!

I have been gluten free for just about a year and a half now. I am working this summer as a camp counselor and have to take some of my own food to supplement each week. I need some inexpensive, make-ahead, quick recipes. I will have access to a freezer and microwave. I would like to make as much as possible prior to camp so that I can enjoy the day I have off on the weekend. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

I don't feel pasta freezes well, IMO it gets real mushy.

Buy good freezer quart size bags.

I would precook and lot of chicken and pork and separate into single serving portions. Same with rice dishes and potatoes.

I make seasoned rice and beans they microwave well and toss in a meat and its a meal.

If you like indian you can marinate and cook your chicken or lamb in Deep brand Tikka Masala or Curry paste it's very nice and mildly spicy.

Use a gluten-free salad dressing like Honey mustard and precook your chicken in it .etc...

I think lasagna freezes well. Not sure about spaghetti. Meatballs freeze well & so does pasta sauce. You could get those Uncle Bens microwave rice. http://www.unclebens.com/Product/Detail?p_id=92 I have only looked at the plain so check ingredients of the other flavors. You can put pasta sauce in it and top with mozarella cheese & melt it. Or some frozen veggies and some of your frozen cooked chicken & gluten-free Teriakyi.

I grill burgers and then freeze them for my parents. When you are going to re-heat cooked meat, its best if you slightly under-cook or re-heat with some sauce. Make some BBQ pulled pork for sandwiches ahead. Or taco meat. Package in small baggies in portion sizes so you don't have to chisel a portion off. Hot dogs freeze well. You could freeze gluten-free bread & buns. I even make fruit smoothies and freeze them in serving sizes then microwave and stir.

Take corn tortillas and shredded cheese & taco meat. Microwave. Homemade applesauce freezes well in individual portions.

I have a yummy recipe for a breakfast type thing. I'll see if I can find it & edit it back on here.

Hand Held Hashbrown Casseroles

Submitted By: Bob Evans® Prep Time: 10 Minutes Ready In: 40 Minutes

Cook Time: 30 Minutes Servings: 24

"Perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast, these casseroles are filled with Bob Evans® Original Sausage and Hash Brown Potatoes."

Ingredients:

1 pound Bob Evans® Original Sausage

– cooked and crumbled

1 (20 ounce) package Bob Evans®

Hash Brown Potatoes

4 eggs

1/2 cup milk

3 tablespoons melted butter

1 cup cubed ham

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup diced bell peppers

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a twelve cup muffin tin. In a bowl whisk together eggs and milk. Add all remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 27-30 minutes or until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

MY changes: Add an extra egg, delete ham, add 1/2 more peppers I use Turkey italian sausage and only 2 tbsp butter

No cupcake liner. Makes more than my 12 muffin pan. I make some in the mini muffin pan, too. Freezes well.

Using your frozen pancakes:

Cook frozen turkey sausage links in microwave and wrap in warmed up pancake . . . gives a sausage biscuit feel.

My daughter used to take pancakes and spread half with peanut butter and half with nutella, fold together. She called them peanutbutternutellapancaketacos . . . yes, all one word.

Muffins (homemade or Udis) freeze well.

Nonfreezer things:

Hardboiled eggs keep well and might be something the camp can make for you as campers might like them as well. Cheese sticks and yogurt are easy to have on hand as long as you can do dairy. My daughter dips pretzels, apple slices and carrots in peanut butter. (She rarely puts peanut butter on bread). Homemade chex mix . . . piece of cake to make . . . use glutino pretzels and skip the cheese crackers and bagel chips (glutino actually makes a bagel chip now but I don't see them too often.) Will you be doing S'mores? Use Kinnikinnick Smoreable Crackers as a sub for grahm crackers.

Thank you all so much! These ideas are fabulous! I know I spent way to much last year trying to do it (buying individual frozen meals and such.) I've been so excited for camp but now I really can't wait!! If anyone is near Western PA, check out Seneca Hills Bible Camp! It rocks!! :)

    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
