Perfect Holiday Mashed Potatoes (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 11/20/2013 - Every holiday season, I field questions about the best way to map mashed potatoes. Which method is best? Which recipe?

This is the simplest, easiest recipe for excellent mashed potatoes, for the holidays or any time.

Photo: CC--wlaytonIngredients:
3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
2 teaspoons salt, divided
⅓ cup butter
⅓ cup cream
2-3 ounces Greek-style yogurt
½ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

Directions:
Peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch pieces. Bring potatoes, 1 tsp. salt, and cold water to cover to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat.

Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 15 to 20 minutes until fork-tender; drain.

Return potatoes to pot. Cook on medium until water evaporates.

Add butter, next 3 ingredients, and remaining 1 tsp. salt.

Cook 1 to 2 minutes until butter melts and the liquid boils.

Mix and mash until smooth. Remove from heat.

Mix as needed to achieve desired smoothness. Serve immediately.

Adams has given me some wonderful starting points for recipes, but I wish I wouldn't have to tweak all of them. He uses a lot of dairy and refined sugar - thanks to celiac I have developed an intolerance to both (as well as soy). So I'm constantly trying to figure out an alternative for the butter, cream, milk, yogurt, etc...

You don't say how many this serves, unless I missed it? And why wouldn't almost all mashed potatoes be gluten-free?

I was wondering if anyone had any advice to help get rid of low back pain caused by inflammation, I never had back pain until I went to a physical therapist for my tingling in my legs, they told me it was from a lower back issue, however I now realized the tingling was from the celiac.

Not on Dapsone, but have found that OTC corticosteroid cream helps lesions clear more quickly and helps with the pigmentation a bit. You don't want to overdo it with the cream as it thins your skin, so only apply to affected areas for a short period of time. Coconut oil (the kind you eat) applied to your skin helps with the dryness and seems to help healing a bit. I would recommend Squirmingitch's advice - go with the Fasano diet. At the very least, avoid eating foods prepared by anyone but you at all costs and try to stay away from open flour/baking. Many celiacs claim to get away with doing these things (and maybe they truly do), but when your reaction manifests externally, it's difficult to pretend that risky behaviours are going below your immune system's radar.

The Rash and various other symptoms are strong signs of Celiac, multiple people in your family also have it. I see several of your symptoms as very familiar to me myself, and I know that supplementation will help resolve the rest of your issues with a gluten-free diet. While we do suggest getting tested for confirmation if your limited as you say with insurance, and money then doing what is best for your health should be your focus right now. Go ahead and remove the gluten from your diet if you wish and go gluten free. If something happens later you MIGHT be able to put up with a gluten challenge and get tested at a later time. I feel for you and see the issues, I have Medicaid myself and my severe gluten reactions and allergies got me on disability for a good while. Testing was a pain in the ass for me as finding a doctor that takes Medicaid is bloody near impossible where I live. I do suggest supplementing Magnesium, Iron, Vitamin D, and B vitamins primarily right now. Others you might be low in are folate, E,C,A and various others. The nerve issues are strongly related to various b vitamins, magnesium, and D. I will share a link of what I take for a example. BTW have you checked out the newbie 101 thread? And if you need help finding gluten-free foods I have a huge list that I have complied for people although we normally suggest a whole foods diet only for the first month or so. Might want to drop dairy and oats for a bit, by the sound of your deficiency issues I would say it would be a huge help doing so. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/

It is meant to show you are a real person not a spammer. Not sure if it works anymore. Only Admin can see it and he doesn't do anything with it.

MelissaNZ, Has your daughter been checked for vitamin deficiencies??? Vitamin D deficiency symptoms include urinary incontinence, oral candidiasis (thrush), skin rashes, bumps on the backs of arms, joint pain, distended stomach and short stature. Bones can't grow much without vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency causes delayed gastric emptying (food doesn't move through the gastrointestinal tract at a normal speed and the intestines bloat) which explains your daughter's delayed reaction to the cake. Vitamin A deficiency is also a cause of bumps on the back of the arms. Vitamin A deficiency causes vision problems. Vitamin A and D are both fat soluble vitamins. Absorption of fats is a problem for Celiacs. So is absorption of B vitamins and important minerals. B Complex vitamins are water soluble and must be replenished every day. Skin rashes are associated with several B vitamins like niacin (B3), B12, and thiamine (B1). I went through a period of severe malnutrition prior to diagnosis. It was not a pleasant experience. I had symptoms similar to your daughter's, including the incontinence, which resolved on vitamin D supplementation. Please, please have your daughter tested for vitamin D deficiency. And have her B vitamins checked as well. Celiac Disease causes malabsorption. Malabsorption causes deficiency diseases. Newly diagnosed Celiacs need to be checked for deficiencies. I hope this helps.
