I'm 14. I've been a semi-vegetarian since I was 12 (my mom forces me to eat fish) When I was 13 I found out I was gluten intolerant (non celiac).

If Thats bad enough, I just found out I was semi allergic to corn and dairy. I can eat yogurt and frozen yogurt. Can't tolerate ice cream or chocolate. I can tolerate hard cheese but not any others.

What am I supposed to eat???? Waah help me. Recipes? Suggestions?

Your dairy intolerance sounds like lactose intolerance. Hard cheese ls low lactose, and yogurt is lower than ice cream because the bacteria break down some of the lactose. Try some Lactaid next time you have ice cream, milk or other fresh dairy.

A lot of people find they have to re-evaluate their decision to be vegetarian if they have multiple food intolerances like you do. It sounds like you can have nuts, eggs, and beans so maybe there are enough sources of protein. Lentils and rice are always good, or split pea soup with chunks of carrot and potato. Have eggs and hash browns for breakfast. You should be able to make corn-free/gluten-free bread for peanut butter sandwiches too.

If you are open to eating more meat, I would get some books from the library about the Paleo Diet. It is grain free and dairy free - but sort of centers on meat (along with vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc.)

There is a lot you can eat but much of it you will have to cook. A rice cooker is helpful. You can make rice in the bottom and they will have a steamer basket you can load with things like Chi-Chi (garbanzo beans) or any other kind of drained and rinsed bean, veggies, fish or shrimp etc. Most will come with a lot of recipes. If you make a good quantity it the leftovers would be good for lunch or dinner another day.

You should still be able to find some gluten free breads and crackers that you can have. There are a wide variety of nut butters and jellies you can try.

Some of the Thai kitchen products should also be suitable. Just read the labels. They can be found in the Oriental section of many grocery stores. I like the real thin rice noodles and often have those with veggies for supper. I use frozen veggies and put them in the water and when the water boils add the noodles. They cook really fast and then can be drained and buttered. (Butter is very low in both lactose and casien so even though it is dairy it may be tolerated.) The single serve Pacific Foods gluten free broths are also good to use. You just eat as a soup without draining.

The important thing when you are not eating meat is to make sure you are getting complete protein when you eat. Like eating beans along with rice for example. Your body needs ample protein to heal as quickly as possible.

Do check out the recipe section. We have vegetarians on the board that may be able to give you some good recipes. Also check out your local libary for cookbooks or even local thrift stores.

I like the old cookbooks in thrift stores because they give 'from scratch' recipes. Rather than saying to add a can of soup or a sauce they tell you how to make it. Cooking that way can be a lot of fun.

Do also look for Enjoy Life chocolate chips. They are allergan free and not bad at all. Great for adding to peanut butter cookies. In case you haven't got the recipe for flourless nut butter cookies it is really simple.

1 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1 cup sugar

about 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Mix ingredients. Line a cookie sheet with foil if desired. Form into balls and put on cookie sheet. Press a crosshatch pattern on the cookie with a lightly greased fork.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the cookie. I start to check at 5 minutes and when the cookies are golden brown around the outside edges I pull them out. Let the cool for 5 minutes before taking off tin foil sheet.

I actually just ate this for supper! Rice with stirfried veggies, shrimp and chicken, So yummy! You could easily leave out the chicken and it would be just as good.

I've also made the peanut butter cookies and they are to die for, but with chocolate chips that's a whole new level! Haha I have to try it! My brother just loves them, I'll have to make some and send them his way....cause I'll eat them all if I don't! Great suggestions, I love it when others give suggestions. Even though I've been doing this a while it's so nice to hear others ideas!

I just remembered we had a thread on gluten-free vegetarian ideas. You might try adding a post to see if you can revive the thread again. You're definitely not the only vegetarian on the board! Here's the link. :)

My best friend was gluten free/vegetarian for a while. There's a great cookbook out called The Gluten Free Vegan, by Susan O'Brien, which, while you may not be vegan, has great recipes than can easily be modified to simply vegetarian. But the others are right....you'll definitely have to cook. I know Amy's has some frozen vegetarian/gluten free burritos, but some people can't tolerate Amy's, though I haven't had a problem. They also have gluten free pizzas.

EDIT: and also, part of the reason my best friend started eating meat again was because she didn't get enough protein, as she had nut and tyramine intolerances. I was actually vegetarian when I went gluten free the first time. It's a really great diet, but sometimes it just doesn't work for your health. I know a lot of my friends who have moral issues with commercial meats stick with locally raised/pasture raised meats. I'm not trying to convince you to do anything or hate on your vegetarian diet, but simply offering alternatives if it gets too hard to cook/shop for the foods you need.

    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Now if everyone out there who probably has a gluten problem adopted your attitude, they would be having a much better life.  After over 10 years gluten-free myself, who really cares about gluten pizza? I go months without gluten free pizza, which is very good by the way, and I am not an emotional wreck.  Imagine!  Glad you feel better and yes, it was the wheat!

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      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!
