In Topic: Just Curious! But What Do You Eat For Breakfast?

10 December 2008 - 05:18 PM

I am always arguing with my 8 year old twins about this. They are like whaaaaaaat's for breakfast??? There's nothing we can have. I'm like oh booo-hooo cry me a river . . . what CAN'T you have? They are lucky not to have any other intolerances other than gluten (although dd is also a type1 diabetic).

Here are the menu choices at Chez Short Order:
Any kind of eggs you wish: boiled, fried, scrambled, poached, quiched, frittata'd with a side of bacon, sausage, whatever. Glutino is now making an actual edible gluten-free bagel and english muffin. Want cream cheese on that? How 'bout make it into a "mc-gluten-free-muffin". A little smoked salmon on that bagel?

If we've got all day to spend on this how about some hash browns, home fries, latkes . . . you name it, what the heck, I'm here to serve!

Not in the mood for eggs? How about the incredibly long list of gluten-free cereals, both hot and cold? Everything from healthy to sugary. Can't find one you like?

Yogurt? Greek with honey, a little bakery on main granola mixed it? In a rush, grab a bar: lar bar, tigers milk, environkids, kind bar, prana, bakery on main, glutino . . .

How about homemade waffles? Want those with blueberries? bannanas? Or fresh hot pancakes, maybe a little splash of buttermilk in them? Shall I warm the maple syrup for you? Wait, I've got some left over bread that is going stale, how about french toast. A little cinnamon and vanilla in that?

Oh I could get up a little early and throw in some banana bread - let's toss in some chocolate chips and make it special. What about chebe cinnamon buns, oh no really, it's no extra work, I was up anyway.

But nooooooo - we're sick of all that!! So I say - you know where the frozen, Van's waffles are and how to work the toaster so help yourelf, I'm going back to bed!!! (And throw a little peanut butter on it for protien.)

And yes there is fruit to boot!

On the serious side though - we eat "breakfast for dinner" at least once a week. I think it really is the easiest of all gluten free meals. The options are endless.

Happy breakfasting!

In Topic: Question About Tortillas...

10 December 2008 - 04:49 PM

I think I have posted my tortilla recipe before, but here it is again. These are by far the best tortillas I have ever had - gluten-free or not!! They take a little work and patience, but if you've got a little over an hour to spend you should be able to get about 16 large tortillas out of the recipe. They freeze well. I usually put 8 in a gallon zip lock in the fridge and the other 8 in a zip lock in the freezer then when we're down to our last in the fridge I throw the ones from the freezer into the fridge. They are great for sandwich wraps, roll-ups, burritos, quesidillas and even little individual pizzas! Sooooo good. I hope you try them!

CHEBE Tortillas:
1 package Chebe Pizza Mix
1 package Chebe bread stick mix
4 Tablespoons of Flax Meal
4 Tablespoons Pamela’s All Purpose gluten-free Mix
1 Cup Milk
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Mix all ingredients in mixer or with a fork to form dough. Break off small balls of dough and roll out thin. Cook in warm (not too warm) frying pan on each side. Allow to cool.

I usually roll these out by cutting a gallon zip lock back on all 3 sides (just leaving the zipper "zipped") then put the dough ball in the middle and roll it as thin as you can. Peels off easy. Takes about a minute or so on each side. If you cook them too long they get crispy to pull 'em out while they're still soft.

ENJOY!!

In Topic: Need Help With My Daughter

10 December 2008 - 08:02 AM

My son is now 8 1/2 years old and when he hits the third percentile on the weight chart we cheer - it's the heighest he's ever gotten. He's often been off the bottom of the chart. He's so skinny that we lose him when he stands sideways. We've tried absolutely everything to bulk this kid up (and he does not have nearly the restrictions that your daughter has - just gluten-free and he doesn't drink milk, by choice, he hates it).

One thing we do is always have a bag of potato chips going for him. He usually hits that bag 7 times a day. Unbelievably he still does not gain weight. At his age he is still only 47 lbs. Just for point of reference, his twin sister (also Celiac/gluten-free) weighs 68 lbs.

Our ped. keeps telling me - some people are just skinny. Very hard for me to buy that answer considering his genetics and his food issues. I keep asking if there could be a thyroid issue but she says no, since he is growing in height (about 25th percentile for height).

I can't think of what else to suggest other than pototo chips with such a limited diet. I like the coconut milk idea, I think I'll try that too. I am sure it is very hard - good luck!!

In Topic: Pasta Recipe Any Good?

10 December 2008 - 07:37 AM

Hi!
I posted a recipe about a week ago for home made ravioli. The recipe is in 2 parts, the first being (egg) pasta and the second being the filling. The pasta certainly works on its own.

If you dig back about a week on this forum you should find it. If not, feel free to PM me and I will send it to you.
