I am horrible about having at least one night where I have no idea what we are eating for dinner. Those nights the hubby stops by publix because their rotisserie chicken is gluten-free and in a dedicated oven. What do you guys do? I could use last minute ideas with kids in sports!

I keep a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer. I put a little olive oil and seasoning on them and either make them on the grill or George foreman. Usually I serve with rice pilaf. I also try to keep chicken tenderloins in the freezer because you can cook them with thawing. Omelets for dinner are also a quick meal when crunched for time.

I keep some good frozen shrimp in the freezer. That way all you need is an avocado to make a shrimp-stuffed avocado on a bed of salad, and take a baguette of Against The Grain out of the freezer (I like it toasted - either as bruschetta or just the little toasts hot with butter). Drool.....

Nearly all of my previous go-to meals are now out of bounds :(

My go to is actually to send my husband to Costco for a chicken. Hahaha! In a true emergency where neither of us want to leave the house I'll usually just throw together some pasta, sauce and frozen meatballs. I use the Farmrich ones which are gluten free because I'm far too lazy to make my own.

Nachos (if I have chips) or quesadillas (always have corn tortillas and refried beans and cheese).

Bean patties - mash one can drained/rinsed beans, add some bread crumbs, an egg, and seasoning. Shape into patties and pan fry. I like it b/c I typically have all the ingredients here. Also chicken curry soup - I keep a chicken breast in the freezer and the other stuff in the pantry.

My go-to easy meal is breakfast for supper. Bacon, eggs or an omelet...or a bowl of cereal.

I'd have to say breakfast for supper too. I make pancakes with either bacon or sausage. I always have Gluten Free Pantry Pancake mIx in the pantry.

Since breakfast is already used.... I would say spagetti (corn noodles are my favorite). I too frequently get into a dinner pinch, so when I make my meat sauce I double it and freeze half. That way next time I can just cook the noodles and thaw the sauce. I do the same thing with Sloppy Joe meat.

I like to peel and dice a whole bag of potatoes and then I have them ready for homefries all week. But for when I have absolutely nothing planned- depends how much time I have. If I'm short on time it's sunnyside eggs with toast, if I have more time probably pasta with meat sauce or chicken sausage.

tacos -

I always keep shells, tortilla chips and salsa in the pantry

we normally have shredded cheese and usually lettuce in the fridge

Whenever I cook taco meat I make double and freeze the other half in a plastic baggie. Then I just thaw and heat - in the microwave if in a hurry.

Another thing I like to do is a skillet dinner. Cook a chopped onion in olive oil till soft and add diced potatoes. When they are almost done, add chopped leftover meat, breakfast sausage, whatever you have on hand or need to use up, and a chopped apple... Let that all brown together for a few minutes. You can top with shredded cheddar right before serving, if you like.

With this, I usually just make frozen veggies in the microwave. Mashed winter squash goes really well with it.

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
