In Topic: Vegetarian, Gluten-Free And Dairy-Free - Can It Be Done?

12 March 2012 - 06:36 AM

I am not vegetarian but I do try to maintain a semi vegetarian diet. I found this website that is very helpful. You have to look at the recipes as many contain dairy. I never had to cut out dairy when I went gluten free but I know some did. There are some pretty amazing recipes out on this site. Whole foods are the best with seasonings and you are good to go. Fruit, vegetables, naturally gluten free whole grains.. etc.. Hang in there you'll be fine!!

In Topic: New To Gluten Free

Hi there,
You can still make crock pot dishes just have to eliminate gravy made with wheat flour. If you aren't into cooking I won't go into the laundry list of special things you can buy to substitute but the one thing you should have on hand if you need to thicken something is rice flour. Casseroles you can find gluten free condensed soup, I believe it's made by Pacific (not sure on that) I've seen cream of chicken, cream of mushroom etc...but you need 'condensed'... Noodles you need to get rice noodles.. I prefer Tinkyada Brown Rice pastas because they cook up nice and don't get mushy. Just made myself a nice dinner with some tonight. Vegetables without sauce (add your own seasoning) I try to stick to fresh food and not packaged because packaged foods can and most do contain some mystery starch and you can't be sure what it is. Shop produce, meats, cheese (if you can do dairy) eggs, rice, rice pasta, and some seasonings (whole foods) and you'll be surprised what you can come up with!!! Good Luck and happy cooking! (psst it's really fun if you get into it lol) I make all my old recipes now, just substitute my flour blend for wheat flour and it even works with baking, breading foods, etc...

In Topic: Red Robin

I went to Red Robin here in my town the other night and after a strange conversation with the waitress and a few sips of water we left without eating. They didn't have the buns although the corporate office assured me they did. The gluten free menu I was handed was nothing more than a typed piece of paper stating so many disclaimers and relieving them of liability that I decided that it was not worth the risk. The waitress didn't have a clue either.. I think it depends on the store, the one in Green Bay WI is not the place to try!! I did however go to a new restaurant that has a gluten free menu and dedicated friers etc and had a burger and fries and it was delightful!! The owner's family has people with Celiac so they are very aware of what they need to do!! I'll be a frequent flier there I think, much more comfortable!!


The general manager at my Red Robin tracked me down somehow and called me to discuss what happened and has now sent me a $40 gift card to please come try again. She said everyone involved has been reprimanded and retraining is happening. She even gave me the name of a waitress to ask for who also has Celiac and eats there every day she works.. So we'll see what happens next time!! I hope my experience was a fluke because I really used to love Red Robin...

In Topic: Family Sometimes Makes Me Feel Bad...

I understand your feeling hurt by that comment. I get that all the time from my Mother and Brother. They refuse to accept it or deal with it eat what we bring. sooooo my son and I skipped Christmas dinner with them and went to my aunt's instead...<evil grin>. My mother was put out when we stopped 'just to visit'... I told her that I love her company but I don't feel comfortable eating in a house where they refuse to deal with my food issues. She said "Oh but you'll go over there!"... (it's her sister that she doesn't like much) and I just said "I'm bringing some of the food and we've had long conversations about gluten free and they are interested in making a meal EVERYONE can enjoy and you're more than welcome to join us"... Response a grumpy no!! Oh well I had a great Christmas eve with a different part of the family that doesn't make me feel bad!!! I know you are only 17 so you can't do that but I just wanted to share so you don't feel alone!!

Merry Christmas
