People are going to be eating gluten all around you for the rest of your life. The whole planet is overrun with gluten eaters. Mostly they are harmless, just a little annoying at times. It's the donut eaters you have to watch out for. Who can tell what kind of person would like to eat a piece of bread with a big hole in the middle of it? Strange people, you betcha.
When I started gluten-free I used to make large batches of rice and veggies and meat on the weekends. Froze most in small plastic bags. Every weekend I would make a different version. So I had a variety of easy to warm up meals in a few minutes. Later I used quinoa instead of rice or a mixture of both. You can also use buckwheat or amaranth, millet, nuts, dried fruit etc. Rice is actually not that good for you as it is just dead calories. Maybe try a version with chicken, coconut milk and cinnamon. Not bad stuff.

I generally do all the cooking at home and it's always gluten free. Unless I have company for spaghetti or serve bread for my guests. My family knows the safety rules when they bring in gluten.
Alway, keep in mind that you're doing this so you can be healthy again and enjoy your life to the fullest. And don't deprive youself too much. Sounds like you're in need of a hot fudge sunday or something special to perk up your day.
It does get better. Stick with us...we'll get you though it. And welcome!

I was diagnosed in May and logically I was okay going gluten-free right away. The problem is when I realize I can no longer have something, like the other day I realized I could no longer have crab rangoons. Some things are harder than others but I do feel better. Just focus on the fact you will feel better soon. Have your vitamin levels checked also.
You are about to be happy - you CAN have crab ragoons, if you make them yourself. This is a great recipe. The author has a great book out that I have called "Gluten Free Asian". Many gluten-free cookbooks are very annoying and useless because all they say is use gluten-free soy sauce and gluten-free that. This book, however, gives you recipes for the good stuff that you really do need a recipe for, such as pot stickers that are delicious.
When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.
