Hi. I donít like joining a board and starting a topic right away, but I have been strolling around the site and havenít been able to find this type of topic.
My husband found out he had celiac the same time I found a host of intolerances. We have since found that between us, there really isnít much left. I can have wheat and he can have corn and potatoes, but none of my family can tolerate milk or soy. We have been altering classic recipes as best we can, but I have recently taken ill, and donít want to spend the extra mental or physical effort to make menus and changes to recipes and dinners. I have been able to find cook books and menu plans that incorporate one or two troubles, but I have yet to find one that provides more than a fist full of recipes for one meal with none of the restrictions.
Is any one aware of a menu or recipe book or site in support of we who can consume so little of the American diet? Even ď1000 things to make with chicken and riceĒ
I have Celiac as well as many other intolerances too. I have found the best thing for me is to eat fresh fruits, veggies, and meats. We make lots of rice dishes too. As well as dinners like spaghetti squash spaghetti and homemade chili. I love the TV show "The Manic Organic." It is on Discovery Home channel, but I bet the host has a cookbook and other resources you could look up online. My husband and I eat organic as well, I have found avoiding toxins helps a great deal with my digestion. We have even gone as far as using natural cleaners and things too. Any way we can help our bodies be healthy, right! I am ill as well and do not have great stamina, so I create lists of meals I can have and what brands and ingredients they include. It seems obvious, but when you are trying to think of something to make for dinner it helps to have a list to glance at. We also make monthly meal plans ahead of time and I have started compliling my own cookbook with recipes we alter to our needs and print from the computer. It can be a lot of work at first, but if you create a file by meal, it is so worth it in the end. And the same meal plans can be reused year after year. It is also so nice to have a master grocery list of foods I can have, I give it to my husband when he can't remember what brands and such. I also have been recently researching Thai and Jewish recipes. Thai cooking uses lots of new flavors and dairy free alternatives like coconut milk which is great for sauteeing. Another great show is "A Lyon in the Kitchen." The host makes lots of alternative dishes for heathy living. I am sure he has a book too, and there are many recipes online for both. Good Luck!
