Secrets For Cream Of Rice
0

7 posts in this topic

Its been a little over 6 weeks since Ive been gluten-free and Ive been eating the same things over and over because I know they are safe. Well its time for me to venture out and try new things. I bought me some cream of rice. I know its similar to oatmeal and needs some doctoring up to make it tasty. Well I doctored it up with some fresh blueberries and a bit of maple syrup. Its still gross! Maybe Im just not a cream of rice person. I also got me some granola to eat and OMGosh its so good but expensive. Our budget will not allow me to buy it often but wow its nummy! Anything you can tell me to try will be greatly appreciated it. Im willing to try anything.

We are not gluten-free in our house (yet), but I do a lot of whole and clean cooking, perhaps you could try a simple home made 'sweet rice' instead of processed or packaged 'cream of rice.'

I always make extra rice, so leftover rice is aplenty in the fridge.

I divy up the (cooked white or brown) rice into small plastic containers about 1/2 cup each.

Sprinkle with cinnamon

drizzle honey or other sweetner

add blueberries or strawberries or other fruit

(my husband puts pineapple and nuts)

sliver or dab of butter if you can have it.

splash of milk product (we use soy...vanilla soy or almond would be great!)

and store in the fridge.

Its traditionally a dessert, but I let my son warm it up for breakfast as a warm rice cereal.

That sounds good! Im definitely going to try that. I can't do white rice, it makes me sick. But I love brown rice and just bought myself a rice cooker yesterday.

I wouldn't do blueberries and syrup together on cream of rice. My best recommendation would be some crumbled bacon and syrup together. I also like to stir in a jar of baby food. I also grew up on grits and/or mush for breakfast so maybe it's just an acquired thing eating something of that texture.

I love cream of rice with butter and pepper, just like grits! Or sprinkle a little cheese.

If you want it sweet, I like it with butter and honey.

I also make it with milk or half and half, then it's really creamy, kind of like cream of wheat.

Make sure your cream of rice cereal isn't actually rancid. I've gotten some bitter, rancid rice cereal on occasion. If yours is bitter, it's gone bad.

I am sad...you make me want to cook up a batch, but I am in the first weeks of grain-free living. {sniffle} :ph34r:

Use it for breading! You'll be so surprised!

I'm a lousy cook, but I wanted to make rice pudding once. I don't like raisins, but I had some organic blueberries. What I did was make the rice, add the blueberries, then I stirred in some ICE CREAM, vanilla of course. Then I baked it. It came out really good! It was so easy I would do it again, except I found out I am still so salicylate senstive that I can't eat any kind of berries. :(

I never liked cream of anything cereals, but maybe the blueberries and ice cream thing would make yours more tasty? (Although I like the bacon idea a lot.)

    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post!
