What Can I Eat?
0

11 posts in this topic

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/.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
