No Cooker Looking For Easy Gluten Out
0

8 posts in this topic

I am new to the gluten Allergy, I was diagnosed in April late March. Life is much easier and so much happier for me, that is when I dont get a bit of gluten in something I did not research. I really hate to cook in the kitchen, I want to be done in 30 minutes with my meal; and ideas for something good do not come to me at all. I love my meat and vegitables and fruit. I like quick and easy but have quickly learned that is not so easy for me to handle later down the road. Any good Ideas for quick easy gluten lunch ideas and dinner? I am in great need of. I live in a small town that gets the latest memos about 1 yr later so Gluten here is slowly getting known.

If you don't want to cook much, I'd suggest a salad routine.

Once a week, cook up 4-5 chicken breasts, 3-4 chicken or pork sausages, 1/2 pound shrimp. Get some hard boiled eggs or make them. Get some canned tuna. Buy lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, in season fruit (peaches, grapes, berries in the spring/summer and apples, bananas and oranges in fall/winter) carrots, tomatoes. Cut up the veggies and put in tupperware or ziplock containers. Buy shredded cheese or cut up/crumble blue cheese, feta cheese etc., and put in containers.

For lunch and dinner, combine variations depending on mood and add guacamole, salsa, dressings, nuts to top the salad. Don't combine ahead of time because it will get soggy.

If you want hot food, you could try Hormel chili, some Progesso soups and Ore Ida french fries.

Or you could get a slow cooker and use recipies from this gluten-free website: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ The author makes it easy. She use "normal" ingredients and you just toss things in the crockpot without too much preparation. Cook 6-10 hours, eat. Yummy.

I definitely suggest a crock pot for people who want good food but aren't into cooking. There may be a little prep involved in the mornings but other than that, all there is to do is dish it up and enjoy.

I'm not really much for putting heat to food either, and I do crock pot somethings. I tend to take out what I want of the meal and freeze the rest in individual containers, so when I need another meal it's all ready to go just needs to be heated! I do eat a lot of salads, hummus and veggies, and fruit. Summer time almost everything goes on the grill, there's just something about throwing some food on the grill ,having a gluten-free beer and enjoying the sunshine that makes me happy! Haha must be the sunshine 😜

I hate cooking. I hate it. After my dd was diagnosed i cried for 2 weeks. I think the first week was for her and the second week was for ME! I subscribe to www.emeals.com and subscribed to the gluten free menu. She gives 7 dinners and the grocery list. No I don't like everything but they are all very easy with minimum ingredients. There are things I swore my kids wouldn't eat but they loved. I think it is around $5 a month for weekly menus. This has saved me.

I do a lot of grilling and since you can wrap anything in foil and it cooks in half the time it is fabulous. I will wrap sliced veggies (all types) in foil with some italian herbs and olive oil and in 10 minutes its done with no clean up. Chops, steak, chicken .burgers, Kielbasi etc.. it all cooks on the grill. If you cook a large batch of rice at the beginning of the week you just have to reheat and saves time later.

I don't like to cook either but found it is absolutely necessary to have food done and ready to eat.

So I fill the cookie sheet 3 times on the weekends.

Once with burgers.

Second with chicken breasts.

Third with Nestletollhousecookies made with gluten free flour.

Then I make a pot of Basmati rice.

There's my son's food for a week.

These are stored in 4 gallon sized ziplocks in the fridge and one on the counter (the cookies!)

That way my son can eat whenever he is hungry....and it is easy to take lunch on the go too!

Fresh fruit adn veggie is all we have to do to make a meal.

It works if you don't love cooking.

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      I have an omelette every  morning and mix up the filling, different stir fried veggies, spinach, avocado etc.  Super nutritious and can keep me going all day if need be.   I went awhile after gluten-free before eating cereal and now I eat it with coconut milk, Tesco's own brand is nice enough. Maybe an option if you want to experiment with avoiding dairy for awhile whilst you heal? Best of luck!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
