Different Types Of Gluten Free Foods?!
0

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any alternatives to gluten free bread? Also different foods that don't include potatoes, rice etc as I'm struggling to think what to eat! It gets very repetitive! Thankyou!

Corn tortillas? Its what i use. There are also rice ones, but i've never had them.

Its not too difficult. I mainly, for example, eat soups most of the time. Take the meat, brown it till ya got a good crust, add water, simmer for 2-3 hours, add whatever veggie and seasonings you like.

Orgran has a line of what they call Crispibreads which are glutenfree. They are really crispy though, more like a long cracker. They are made in Australia and I get them at my local health food store here in NY. I mostly eat the Orgran Buckwheat Crispibread and I will put almond butter or tuna on it. I don't remember the other types of them but I think rice, corn and quinoa crispibread.

For different foods I mostly eat quinoa.

The quinoa flakes as a hot cereal and put maple syrup in it. It is quick and convenient and I usually make it in the microwave instead of on the stovetop in a pot. Or for an alternative hot cereal there is Cream of Buckwheat.

Then there is the regular quinoa which unlike the flakes needs to be rinsed first. But it only takes 15 minutes to cook on the stove in a pan and you can store it in the refrigerator for a week and add a little water to it when you want it and heat it in the microwave. I have it for dinner quite often and put a little butter and salt on it. It has a very mild taste. Sometimes I put shrimp or a piece of halibut over it and add toasted sesame oil. I use the white quinoa but they also make red and black which I think take a bit longer to cook, are crunchier and with a bit more flavor. You can also make Tabouleh Salad with cooked quinoa but I haven't tried that yet.

Another alternative is Kasha which is roasted buckwheat groats. You cook them on the stove adding water or broth, butter and salt. You stir the kasha over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes until it is hot and slightly toasted, then reduce heat to low and stir in the boiling water or broth, and butter and salt and cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes until kasha is tender and liquid is absorbed.

You can also make kasha pilaf by adding in sauted onions, mushrooms or other chopped vegetables and then cooking it as above.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
