Thread For gluten-free, Dairy, Soy, Corn And Nightshade Free Recipes
0

84 posts in this topic

Hi all,

It seems that once going gluten-free many of us find other problems arise. The above list (gluten-free, dairy, soy, corn, and nightshade free) seems to be a common one, along with totally grain free. Can we start a thread of recipes and meal suggestions that follow these restrictions?

One of my regular meals is to make chicken soup with carrots, celery, onion (mirepoix) and sometimes ginger, lemongrass, leeks, turnips, or whatever additions. The next day I make homemade mayo for chicken salad. The broth and veggies I put in the vitamixer with some other cooked veggies for a thick soup. Roast sugar baby pumpkin has been a favorite flavor of late, but adding any cooked veggie will do.

Since discovering Paleo recipes, I found a crock pot meal with pork tenderloin and butternut squash, spiced with garam masala. It was pretty good, and with enough cooking time the squash disintegrates into a sauce. I've been adding bacon and an egg to the leftover stew to call it breakfast. Yummy breakfast! I found the recipe on everyday paleo.com but others may have it as well.

This week we also had meatloaf (no breadcrumbs, no tomatoes) with sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Tonight was fish with spaghetti squash and spinach. Tomorrow I will be roasting carrots to make a replacement tomato sauce to serve over meatballs, maybe with some brown rice pasta. I also plan to cook a crock pot pulled pork flavored with apple cider vinegar and honey, but haven't decided on sides yet. After some shopping bigos (Polish hunters stew) will be on the menu, but without tomatoes and I have to find some sausage without ingredients from The List.

I'm looking forward to hearing your meal suggestions!

I think you just did...many folks post in the what's for lunch and dinner threads - it would be great for those of us with multiple intolerances to have a thread as well.

Tonight I had:

Roast Beef

Roasted Asparagus

*Spaghetti Squash with Cilantro/Almond/Garlic Pesto - I can't use pinenuts or walnuts for pesto

*Family had gluten-free pasta with pesto - picky son had splash of pasta sauce straight from a jar in the frig on his ;)

Special birthday dinner tonight for one of my teens:

BBQ Baby Back-ribs

Gluten Free Hawaiian Pizza

Grilled Pineapple

Brownie Cake topped with a layer of mint confection and topped with chocolate frosting - think girl scout thin mints on steroids :)

For me: Ribs - sans sauce; spinach salad and chocolate dessert -- I currently eat very few sweets, for special occasions I make the following so everyone doesn't feel bad for me: heated coconut oil, almond butter, agave and cocoa whisked well then sets up firmly in custard cups in the frig for firm mousse type or freeze for ice cream replacement.

Breakfast: ground beef, leeks, spinach, eggs. Discovered we are out of onions. Horrors!

Lunch: paleo pumpkin muffins

Dinner: roast chicken and carrots

I roasted carrots for a pasta sauce to eat tomorrow with homemade meatballs. I'm trying a tomato substitute for the first time. Kids will eat regular pasta with tomato sauce, I get brown rice pasta with carrot sauce. I froze some extra meatballs and sauce for later use. And I need to make some mayo for chicken salad.

I discovered yesterday I was out of butter (horror!) so I made fried apples with just

a spoonful of honey, and am eating that with leftover roasted chicken now. Cold

fried apples are DELICIOUS!

Steak

Steamed Broccoli

Spaghetti Squash with cilantro pesto

Highlight today was apples -- first fried with a touch of cinnamon for lunch and then used my new dehydrator to dry apple slices - they were crunchy :rolleyes: I cannot tell you how much I have missed crunchy snacks this past year.

Spaghetti squash with ground beef, egg white (leftover from making mayo) and brown rice pasta

Chicken, mayo, mixed veggies

Spaghetti squash with carrot sauce

And, SWEET! I made a paleo dessert with nuts and dates called caramel pecan bars. Awesome!! It was such a joy to eat something sweet for dessert. The puréed dates would probably taste good on an apple, too. A recipe for the holidays, certainly!

Love, love, love the new dehydrator - pears and two types of apples great thus far. Looking for way to safely marinate jerky - may just make a few batches for my men without so many intolerances first. The apple chips alone make me very happy. Strange - granny smiths took 6 hours to crunchy - gala and pears are dried at 6, but going to try them go a bit longer - really loving the crunch. Also, all instructions I found said my fruit would turn very brown without soaking in citrus juice first -- I can't have citrus so I dried my fruit naked...didn't turn brown - tanned a bit, but didn't detract from enjoyment :)

Eggs with chopped cilantro, chopped broccoli and spinach for breakfast this morning

LOVE the idea of a food dehydrator!

Ate leftovers again tonight. The carrot sauce goes well with everything...the spaghetti squash, the meatloaf, as a sauce for veggies... I'm really enjoying having a sauce to eat.

Does anyone have any suggestions for other vegetable sauces to make? I make mayo. But what other sauce is free of ingredients fromThe List?

If you can tolerate vinegar - I make a thick dressing in the blender with olive oil, apple cider vinegar, a couple large handfuls of cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper - honey or agave is a nice addition. Works great as salad dressing or a sauce to add flavor to left over meats or vegies. Have also made it with basil instead of cilantro. Adding flavor to a restrictive diet is essential.

Yesterday was very hot here - I don't do well in heat so dinner was a large bowl of steamed broccoli.

I think I"ll blend up a new sauce today - thanks for the little nudge :)

Dinner = Crustless Jack-O-Lantern Pie

No, I'm not having dessert for dinner - it is an experiment - really...it is ;)

I used plain old white sugar in these pumpkin pies and must find out how the sugar effects me as I have had nothing but agave or honey for many, many, many months.

Also a first - substituting coconut milk for dairy in pumpkin pie - so if it is a flop I'll be having baked chicken and sweet potato fries!

GottaSki, thanks for the sauce rec! Good idea I'm going to have to do that.

How did the pie work out?

I still have to make a practice paleo pie soon in preparation for our Thanksgiving dinner. I made a Caramel Pecan Bar with basically pecans and dates. There were a few tablespoons of coconut milk, and that seemed ok for me so I bought more. Lots of recipes are calling for coconut milk in place of dairy. Homemade cashew milk can be too nutty for the other flavors sometimes.

Yesterday I made a crock pot sweet/sour pork dish. It was a made up recipe, based on BBQ but without any tomatoes. I did, however, use chili powder spices. That may have hit my stomach in a bad way? I'll have to see what happens tomorrow.

Confession: oh, I've been a bad girl. All that Halloween candy in front of me, tempting me, how much can a girl take? Then a new candy showed up, attractively packaged, of a snickers bar with almonds instead of peanuts. It said gluten free. But it did have soy, corn, and probably dairy, basically almost everything on my list to avoid. I savored that candy in 3 tiny bites! And woke up hurting a little. Tonight, I think I'll just have wine, LOL!

The pie experiment went well - coconut milk is a great sub for evaporated milk in the recipe I've always used (back of Libby's canned pumpkin) -- only problem was my fresh pumpkin puree wasn't as thick as canned so they set, but I'm going to make adjustment for the next round (I have a lot of fresh pumpkin left otherwise I would just use canned pure pummpkin puree for Thanksgiving)

Dinner was thick pumpkin soup (garlic,onion,thyme,etc - would have preferred a recipe I found online for spicy soup, but that will have to wait until I get nightshades back).

Ok I'm done cooking pumpkins for a bit - except maybe some paleo pumpkin muffins....oh that sounds good - late breakfast today ;)

PS - feel free to call me Lisa

Would you share your chop suey sauce recipe? I haven't eaten Chinese food for months, since avoiding corn starch and soy sauce.

Sorry..I haven't been online for a few days..

Basic Chop Suey- pork or beef could be substituted for chicken

I find it easiest to cut up all veggies and the meat before starting to cook. This cooks pretty fast and needs your full attention.

2 boneless/skinless chicken breats cut up into bite sized pieces

1 large onion chopped

garlic powder 1teas. or to taste (more is better)

salt or seasoning salt

3 ribs of celery cut on diagonal into slices

1 red pepper chopped or cut into slices(can be omitted)

1 lb, white mushrooms washed well and sliced

1.5 lbs fresh bean sprouts

Cut the meat from 2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts in small pieces and brown in a bit of coconut oil. Add chopped onion and continue to brown at fairly high heat. Season with garlic powder and salt to taste. (Seasoning salt adds a bit more flavor if you tolerate it).

Add sliced mushrooms, red pepper, and celery and stir and cook until vegetables start to wilt a bit. Add bean sprouts and stir in. Turn heat down and allow bean sprouts to relax. Add 1 cup water if needed for sauce. (sometimes the veggies create enough juice on their own).

Serve over rice.

Thanks for the recipe, Bubbas Mom!

We ate an AWESOME dinner tonight. Sautéed chicken served a top puréed parsnips and topped with sautéed leeks, kale, and bacon. DH named it restaurant quality! Recipe is from everyday paleo website. Really super!

    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
    • You should never have cut out gluten until you had the biopsy done. It's much worse to have to go back on after you've been off gluten for a while. There's no way I could ever do the gluten challenge after being off gluten for even a month because my reactions got so dramatically worse.  Stress definately can trigger celiac- before I was diagnosed - it got the worst after surgery and after a stressful time planning my daughters wedding.
