I can't have gluten, corn, corn syrup, potato, tomato, dairy. I need some ideas for meals please! All I eat is meat, veggies, and fruit... And can't eat too much veggies as it makes me way too bloated. I am sinking in to a terrible depression bc I want to eat other things and I don't know what other choices I have. Everything I eat bloats me out to look like I'm pregnant. Which also makes me very irritable and cranky. Also, I don't like eggs. Breakfast and lunch are the hardest. Fruit is just not filling me enough. Ahh I am feeling very homeless today :(

Sorry to hear that. I have somewhat different food issues than you but I can relate. Can you eat rice? That's what I turn to.

Sweet potatoes. You can have them with your meat and a small serving of vegetables, or you can bake them, peel them (the skin comes right off if they're baked first), then mash them with a little bit of cinnamon and sugar. Tastes just like pumpkin pie filling and makes a great dessert. And the best part is they are FULL of nutrition.

For snacks can you have nuts? I find them really filling and something I don't need to cook (which I do enough of already with my multiple intolerances like you). If nuts are hard to digest you can try soaking them first, I find that helps a lot. For an afternoon pick-me-up I've been known to have a few squares of chocolate (dairy free, soy free chocolate) too. Rice crackers and hummus with a few veggies can be made into a light lunch as well.

I realize it is still summer (and may still be hot where you are), but you can make some pretty filling soups with rice noodles, chicken, veggies. Stews are good too if you are into that sort of thing. You can make up a bunch of either and take it for lunch.

For a good breakfast, if you don't like eggs, you can make up a batch of really hearty breakfast cookies. Let me know if you'd like a recipe. A couple of those with a glass of non-dairy milk or some tea and a bit of fruit and I'm good to go.

You can make as pumpkin "pie" with coconut milk or almond milk. No crust. Just bake in the pan.

Beans. Refried with celery or rice chips to dip.

Nuts? Peanuts? Pb on celery or apples or gluten-free rice cakes. Any other nut butter on apples or gluten-free rice cakes.

I think there are yogurts made with coconut or almond milk.

Do you have a crockpot? Throw the veggies you can have and meat in and yum. You could put them over rice or rice noodles. Season them differently. Spicy or Asian flavors or curry.

Lots of stuff.

You can make it sweet with sugar, almond milk, raisens, cinnamon.

You can add cooked chicken, beans and rice to it.

Look for a coconut rice recipe like they serve at some Asian places.

You can use rice noodles and put pesto on it. You can make it with any green you like, not just basil. Leave out the cheese.

Breakfast Smoothies - I use several pieces of any combo of fruit and a couple large handfuls of spinach in a blender - I only add water to help mix, but if you can tolerate rice or almond milks you can expand into other types of smoothies.

We use many combos of blueberry, apples, pears, peaches, plums, banana, melon, mango, cherries, etc. - I can't tolerate oranges or pineapple, but they taste great in there.

Much more filling than eating pieces of fruit - plus I love knowing I got loads of spinach in too -- we use other greens, but spinach is our go to green.

Here you go! http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.ca/2008/02/breakfast-cookies.html

I just made these this weekend. My boyfriend threatens to steal them they are so good...hehe I never thought that would happen when I started gluten-free/dairy free baking :). They do have oats in them, so be careful if you are sensitive to them.

My 5 year old daughter is allergic to egg, dairy and soy so, I've been struggled with what to feed my family for years. Now with my recent Celiac I was at a complete loss for a while there.

Lately I've been researching recipes online. A bunch of good ones seems to be on http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.ca/p/site-index.html and skinnyms.com. Also I know get allergy living magazine, which is great.

Here's one to change up rice, I've done a similar recipe to this with Almond milk and it was just fine: http://skinnyms.com/slow-cooker-brown-rice-pudding/.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Remember that you have to be eating a normal gluten diet for the testing so don't cut back & don't stop eating it. Make sure they do the full, current celiac panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Yep, get tested for celiac.  You have plenty of digestive symptoms to indicate it.

      Hi Richie, It definitely sounds like you got glutened.  Over here in the USA they can't label foods gluten-free if they are made from gluten ingredients, period.  So your barley drink would not be labeled gluten-free here.  A while back I read something about the testing for gluten in foods not being as accurate for detecting barley hordein as it is for wheat gliaden.  So the gluten-free testing (if they do any) that your drink maker does may not be reliable. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition.  So the immune system starts reacting when it detects gluten and damages the gut lining.  An immune reaction is not like a food poisoning event, where most of the damage is only while the food is actually in your system and then ends.  An immune reaction can continue for weeks to months.  The immune system is really quite serious about protecting our bodies.  And since it is designed to detect and attack micro-organisms it reacts to tiny amounts of gluten. Wheat, barley, and rye are the main gluten grains that affect celiacs.  But some celiacs also react to oat gluten.

      Hi Richie,  Glad you are feeling better. I wondered have you been officially diagnosed with coeliac disease? Just wondering as you say you are anaemic, that is one of the symptoms of coeliac disease, along with other general malnutrition. You don't need to eat meat for iron though, you can get it from non-heme foods, like spinach or parsley. Just be careful with the drink with barley, it may be that you only start to have symptoms if you consume a lot of it, but if you have coeliac disease the damage is still been done to your gut regardless of whether you have symptoms or not, which will ultimately lead to malnutrition as well as other things.

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding is that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes in bowel movements (sorry if tmi) but they rarely last more than a couple of weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!

      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.
