Old Foods You Miss And New Foods You've Discovered

Recommended Posts

I mostly miss the convenience of eating regular food and being able to eat at restaurants. I have a busy schedule, so it's not always easy to go home and prepare myself something. I also miss baking, although I'm learning new gluten-free recipes. I've been gluten-free for 4 months, so I have found some new things to eat and am getting into a routine. I've discovered grass fed beef and butter and coconut oil. I'm still learning to like veggies more. 

 "Most of all this Christmas I'm going to miss my mom's homemade hot chocolate. It has no gluten...but it's made with milk and the chocolate has soy in it."

I miss good hot cocoa, too. I recently discovered a Pinterest recipe for making your own chocolate bars with organic cocoa and coconut oil. I haven't tried it yet, but I'd like to, since most of the chocolate I have found has soy in it, which I've decided I also need to avoid. Maybe coconut or almond milk could replace the dairy- I may try giving that up, too.

Enjoy Life chocolate is great and free of all major allergens. It's so good. Chocolate is my favorite food group. ..I don't want to have to give it up!!

i did mix it, but i get free and loose with my measurements when it comes to flour lolz (1/4 cup?  close enough)  as long as i end up with the total amount and all flours are included, i am good!  lately, i have been using king arthur a.p. and my friend swears by domata so i picked up a sack of that to try again.  she makes brownies with them that are yum-o :)

 

Ok. The flour mix I have is very similar so I might give it a try with that and see how it goes.  Thanks.

gluten-free brownies are one treat that I find is usually better than the "glutenous" variety. Brownies are one gluten-free dessert that I can always bring that no one will turn their noses up at.

I miss good ol fashioned pizza! Or just picking up something and buying it with out having to search for hidden gluten, Corn, Or soy ..... I have tried making breads and buying breads but havn't found anything I like as of yet..... Making breads most of them have so much stuff in them, I don't have and it is pricy to buy all that stuff So I just don't eat any bread.

Christmas time is when my grandma makes Mexican food.. homemade flour tortillas... I miss those. Nothing compares to fresh flour tortillas made with gluten. I have found no good substitute that works like a tortilla should. Thankfully I am a tear and scoop tortilla eater so I don't wrap burritos very often.. but the ones I have tried all tear when you try to roll them! Boo!!

 

I miss dairy, I miss eggs. I haven't found any good breakfast that is quick and nutritious that compares to eggs or Greek yogurt. I miss protein powder. The vegan ones all give me tummy aches too.. not sure what the issue is there but I had to give it up for the time being ( I have colitis too - so these other intolerances are from that).

 

I have made a good Thai red curry at home that I really like... but I have been in a rut when it comes to food lately. Everything triggers my colitis.

I haven't tried gluten-free tortillas yet, but I'm wondering if you popped them in the microwave for a few seconds. That MIGHT make them roll more easily without tearing.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

I always heat them up either in the microwave or on a skillet. The best tortilla that has come close to roll well is La Tortilla Factory. But even then I had tearing once it cooled down while eating.

I have a girlfriend who steams tortillas before rolling and it works beautifully. I haven't done it myself - too lazy.
