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.

    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Thank you! My PA said that she still thinks it's celiac....but I don't feel like she's fully explained why. Some people are hard to get a solid answer out of! I think I'm gonna get a second opinion somewhere else.....appreciate the feedback. Makes me feel a little less crazy

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hello Elle Among this online community you are not alone in either your symptoms or how you feel about visiting the doctor.  I for one understand the anxiety that you are going through, my own weird nerve stuff and other puzzling symptoms have had me really scared at times.   So much you are going through could very well be gluten related, it really could.   But if it isn't, in the end it is worth trying to find out what it is going on so you can get the treatment you deserve. After all, it could have a really simple, treatable explanation, once the doctors know what it is. I remember reading on another website something that has helped me with my own health anxiety - if one can summon up the courage to go and see the doctor, one should pat oneself on the back and be proud of oneself for doing the right thing.  I'm not terribly keen on the idea of being a proud person - but I think it was meant in the best sense, and it is always good to do the right thing, even if one does it afraid!  It always makes me feel that bit stronger when I'm in the waiting room at the doctors! There is lots of great advice above.  Do take it and make sure you come back if you need further support. There are some fantastic people here to help.

      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

      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.
