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.

Pressure cooker! I just bought a good one. Split pea soup, start to finish, 8 minutes.

Buy a good one, no aluminum, with a dial to change the pressure. $75 for a Spanish one.

I love this thing, my gosh. I eat so well now and the food taste so good! 2 minutes

for delish, steamed broccoli.

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hi Courtney, You asked about dairy, and RMJ got it right.  Celiac disease destroys the villi lining of the small intestine.  Those villi make the lactase enzyme we need to digest dairy. Sigmoid colon thickening could be related to diverticulitis.  Which according to Wiki is a fairly common condition but doesn't always cause symptoms.  Diverticulitis can cause a problem if there is an infection though.  The sigmoid colon is part of the large intestine.  Celiac disease affects the small intestine, so celiac isn't likely involved.  I am not sure why the resident suggested celiac, unless there were some other reason to do so.  Possibly the weight loss, which could be explained by celiac disease.  Thickening of the colon may happen with Crohn's disease also.  And I'm not sure about UCD (ulcerative colitis disease) but it might cause that also, not sure https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diverticulosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmoid_colon http://biology-pages.info/G/GITract.html#pancreas http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
