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

Yesterday I made pizza! The almond-coconut-egg crust covered with a garlic sauce and topped with artichokes and mushrooms was delicious! I did include a bit of grated mozzarella cheese, as I can have a bit of dairy now and again without the rash appearing. I just ate some again for breakfast. YUM!

The kids ate regular cheese pizza with tomato sauce. It looked delicious.

Tonight I'll be cooking chicken soup with some pastina for the kids.

Where did you get the crust recipe? Did the coconut flavour overpower the flavour of everything else?

Does anyone know if sorghum flour is just as bad as say buckwheat/corn? I've been straying from my diet so I'm not sure if it's because I ate a bunch of pizza made of sorghum/tapioca or not.. hmm

Welcome to the board, Eva Bee.

When you say "just as bad as" I assume these both are a problem with you? I am with you on the corn, but sorghum and buckwheat are my two go-to" grains since I can't eat millet, quinoa, amaranth or soy.

Have you tried frying rice wraps? I've been wanting to try that but I'm not sure how that would turn out... What I also see in my local Chinatown stores are beancurd sheets.. now I'm supposed to avoid legumes and beans as well but I'm just wondering if I could use rice paper instead!

Yes, I have tried frying rice wraps. They are a bit fragile, but it's doable. I haven't seen the beancurd sheets and I wouldn't use them because I don't do legumes either.

I've fried the rice wraps and can say..don't overfill them...and be sure to give them a light squeeze before dropping into the oil so they stay together. Some people use two, but I found one worked well if I didn't overstuff them. There's a good video on how to work with them on youtube.

I make a recipe that we call Caveman Stew. It's pretty simple to make and my 2 gluten eaters really like it too.

Caveman Stew

2 chicken breasts-bone in

3 bay leaves

1 32oz carton Meijer Naturals chicken stock (has no MSG or GMOs)

1 large onion chopped

3 stalks celery, sliced

3 cloves garlic put through garlic press, or finely chopped-fresh please!

1 lg turnip or 2 smaller ones cubed

1 parsnip, sliced

5 carrots, sliced

mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

small stalk broccoli

sea salt

Place chicken in large pot and add stock and bay leaves. Bring to boil, then turn down and simmer for an hour or so. Add chopped onion, celery, and garlic. Simmer additional hour. Add turnip, parsnip, mushrooms, and carrots. Remove chicken and let cool on plate. Remove skin and bones. Tear chicken into chunks and pinch to make stringy. Add back to stew. (this makes the chicken sop up the liquid). Once veggies are softened. add the cut up stalk of broccoli and add tops just at the end so they don't break up too much. Serve.

* You can add or subtract veggies. This recipe is very forgiving.

Hi Evabee and welcome!

I've been making a few things with coconut and coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut cream, all as a dairy alternative. In some things a slight coconut flavor shines through. Not enough to be a turnoff. And I'm not one to usually like the flavor. Like, you know those candy bars that have coconut in them? Always a thumbs down for me. Anyway, it was a paleo recipe for the pizza crust and it worked out well. I would tell you which one but I am out of town right now and can't look up my recipe file. If you were to search paleo pizza crust coconut you would probably find a few contenders to try!

For breakfast today I ate a "bread" made from almond butter, eggs, honey and baking soda. It was really good, and my kids LOVE it too! I found the recipe at everyday paleo.com. But, I doubled it and cooked it WAY longer than the recipe states. Anyway, it was nice to have a breakfast that didn't require on the spot cooking!

Thanks for the welcome everyone! I have been on my reduced grain diet for a couple months so I'm just trying to find out ways to know what grains I can tolerate. How did you? What symptoms appeared for you? I guess it would be best to reintroduce grains one at a time to see if I react?

Yes, from past experience I would definitely go slow with introduction of new things. I just barged in, full-speed ahead, and then had to backtrack a lot and experiment to find out what was causing my rashes, itching, hives, etc., which only appeared once I was well rid of gluten, I might add.

ditto as Mushroom for me

except I currently have no grains...I think she was able to get a couple back.

when I challenged I did it one food item with one week apart -- only grain that I did not react to was rice -- but later did have to remove it as well.

am currently waiting a solid year from when I removed rice again to try attempt any challenges

Best Christmas gift I received was a mandolin to julienne zucchini into pasta type substance - just had zu-nooodles with chicken and basil almond pesto and it tastes really close to angel hair - hip hip hooray - now I've got two "noodle" options :)

They only cost about 20 at a kitchen store - might be less online - a new must if you are grain free

I've got one of those and have been too lazy to put it together and figure out how it works-

I need to get on that!

Really easy...just watch your fingers -- I don't like the safety guide thing that came with mine -- may need to look for a more expensive one if I keep eating zu-noodles -- had two bowls today :)

How do you remake leftover chicken?

In warmer weather I made mayo, diced veggies and made chicken salad. I could do stir fry, I guess. What veggie combo would you use?

Hi Dave-

Have not tried the above myself - too many can't haves -- I generally mix olive oil, cilantro or basil with a bit of garlic, salt and sugar/agave to make a safe dressing in the blender - then toss with chicken for "chicken salad"

Hi Dave,

All you need is patience, oil, lemon juice OR white vinegar, a whisk, and more patience. The oil may be grape seed or olive or canola or whatever you prefer.

Separate the egg so only the yolk is in your mixing bowl. Put the egg white aside for breakfast or whatever. Add to the yolk 1Tablespoon of the acid...either lemon juice or white vinegar. Add some flavoring a like garlic powder, mustard powder, whatever. Whisk a bit.

You will eventually add 1-1/2cups of oil. But first you need patience. Add a few drops of oil and whisk until combined. Add a few more drops and whisk until combined. Repeat. Repeat until the volume of the mayo is large enough that you can add more than a few drops at a time. It is supposed to emulsify, and there you have mayonnaise! At the end you can add fresh herbs or fresh garlic for more flavor if you like.

If you go too fast with the oil and it separates, then you need to start with another egg yolk and add the failed mayo a few drops at a time. Really, it always makes me wonder how anyone ever discovered the recipe! Good luck!

Our tapas dinner tonight consisted of: scotch egg with homemade mayo, meatballs with carrot ginger dipping sauce, sushi with sashimi grade tuna, roasted veggies, and for the gluten eaters at the table, gnocchi. It was my first attempt at scotch egg and they are good! Especially with some wasabi to spice it up. It was also my first try at coconut amines in place of soy sauce, which was alright, and certainly better than dry sushi.

Tomorrow will be chicken with leeks, kale, and bacon for lunch. For dinner, pea soup with a ham hock. I

Know the ham is gluten-free, but I do not know if it is corn and soy freehand am not sure how to find out.any advice?

I made myself a cold pasta salad for lunch today. I really missed pasta because I can't put tomato based sauce on it. So today I cooked gluten free pasta (rice bran pasta). I ran it under cold water to cool it. For the sauce I used half ranch and half french dressing. I also added green pepper and cucumber but you could put any veggies in that you would like. If you can handle it, I bet a sprinkle of paramasan cheese would be good too!

That sounds great!

I just had my carrot garlic "pasta" sauce on zu-noodles with shrimp -- not bad for a portable picnic :)

I"ll have to give this a try, just can"t do the lemon juice or egg just yet. It should do pretty good on my tuna in water also. thanks for the tip, in a few months I"ll have to give the homemade mayo a try.

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms.
