Need Help With A Snack.

38 posts in this topic

Hiya,

I am going nuts eating only meat, vegetables and fruit. I am gluten, dairy, nut (including coconut) and corn free. Xanthan gum comes from corn so I can't have any of the packaged things. I can't have chips because they are fried in corn oil or they are cc with corn. I am not trying to complain, I am just starting to get D from all of the fruit that I eat. I can go through a whole watermelon by myself in 2 days. There has got to be something else for a snack besides fruit.

I cried at the grocery store today because I am having my monthly visitor and I just want some chocolate or a cookie or a chip or something! The lady in front of my had all of the makings for chocolate chip cookies in her cart. I seriously cried all the way home.

Any ideas?

Thanks

sou are h... Guar Gum is not made from corn so maybe you could make some goodies using Guar gum instead of xanthan gum... Also I don't have hte sites today but I do know that there are several cookbooks for completely alleregy free things. One may be Cybele ( don't remeber her last name) & perhaps check out Cooking For Isiah by Silvana .... Also there are many sites that have recipes for allergy free..

Check out these two places for ingredients.. Lucy's Cookies ( I think she is a doctor , maybe ! her things are very good, another is Home Free,I think they are gluten-free, peanut free, egg free,tree nut free, dairy free...

I think the more things we have reactions to the harder our journey becomes , plus more costly ....

It sounds like you are feeling food deprived... also thinkere is a site called Allergy Free. com perhaps you could find something on it as well...

hugs

Elizabeth Gordon has a cookbook : Allergy Free Desserts, its on the big shopping online store for $13.00-- sorry I'm not sure we are permitted to mention the big "A" online store on here...it does mention using xanthan gum but you can sub that with guar gum...

Goota run for now but I hope these help you....

Both of those companies use corn, Lucy's and Home Free. Bummer. It's in the vanilla and baking powder.

I'll check out the cookbook....thx!

Thanks for the links. I appreciate it.

Enjoy life doesn't work for me.

Q: Are your products corn free?

A: Enjoy Life products do not claim to be corn-free. Having said that, we want Enjoy Life customers to have as much information as possible regarding our ingredients. The powdered evaporated cane juice in 2 of our Boom Choco Boom bars (Dairy-Free Rice Milk Bar and Dairy-Free Rice Milk with Crispy Rice Bar) contain less than 1% corn starch as a processing aid. This product is labeled

If you want some potato chips, try Cape Cod chips?

Dedicated facility and made with canola oil, not corn or soybean oil.

What about seeds? They aren't nuts. Would have to check if they are cooked in corn oil. You might be able to get raw and toast them in the oven. We have done that with pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.

Do you like sunnut butter? On apples?

Hummus and dip carrots and cukes? Homemade salsa and dip celery or cukes or those jicama things cut into strips? Same with guacamole.

Popsicles? Could even make your own with juice you like or fresh lemons, sugar and water. Could mess around with the fresh fruits mushed and frozen into Popsicles. You could eat it out of a bowl but it doesn't seem as snacky as a Popsicle.

Do you need to avoid soy? There are some wheat-free,corn-free, dairy-free chocolates out there, but the ones I've found have soy.

Obviously focusing in chocolate here! I cannot imagine life without chocolate in it.

Are you okay with rice and flax? Perhaps you could make something like a rice krispy treat with enjoy life's crunchy flax cereal or crunchy rice cereal (used to be "Perky's" brand) using those corn-free marshmallows.a

Just for crunch, I love rice cakes or crackers, Crunchmaster makes wonderful tamari rice crackers and also lundberg makes good rice cakes which I like with home-made hummus.

What about these?

You could make them with Hemp seed, fox and/ or sun flower seeds, pumpkin seeds. Or a mix. Might have to experiment.

Edit:

"fox"? Spellcheck, really? Flax changed to fox? I guess Spell check has a point, fox would add a unique flavor and you probably aren't intolerant or allergic to fox meat! :)

I am going to do just that. I had to search the basement for my tupperware popsicle mold and found it. As soon as I make some lemonade, I am going to freeze some.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
