Feeling a bit jealous

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I miss Chinese Food, and pizza, I miss just getting something to go and going out eating hamburgers and what not. The gluten free bread never taste the same not to me anyway. I miss eating the hot and sour soup that was my favorite comfort food. 


I get a bit jealous here at work when they have food parties with all kinds of hotdogs and hamburgers, cookies and cakes, I don't think most people even know what celiac is. When you think of a cook out or going out to a food festival you think of a lot of breaded products, some people say "oh just a bit won't hurt you." Or it's just a crumb." They don't get it, my father still hasn't gotten it either, he offers me gluten products all the time saying "I'm sure this won't hurt."


A bit silly I know, but never realize how much I would miss gluten, it's mainly the Chinese food I miss. I love Asian food but most of it if not all has gluten.

Hi! =[ I'm sorry you are feeling sad. Isn't that the worst when someone tried to tell you "it wont hurt it's just a little". Sometimes for me it just helps to make jokes about it. I'm sorry your dad has a hard time understanding. I miss Chinese food too I haven't had it in while. Do you like too cook? Maybe try going on pinterest and look up gluten free recipes of your favorite comfort food. I know there are deff gluten free asian food recipes on there. I know some really don't like cooking but maybe with this new lifestyle it can become a new hobby! :) Everyone loves a home cooked meal! Maybe if you get a little more forceful with your Dad or try to explain it differently he will understand. Maybe express how if you continue to eat it then your intestines wont work right anymore and you will just get sicker. Sorry I know that probably doesn't help right now. It's not silly either its a total lifestyle change and for some people it really is difficult. Hope you start to feel better.

Thai Kitchen makes a bunch of instant asian food even knock off take out boxes all instant and gluten free. Coconut Secret makes great gluten-free teriyaki sauce, coconut amino and garlic sauce all asian inspired, OrganicVille makes some great sauces also like sweet chili and siracha gluten-free, Lotus foods makes instant gluten-free ramans, and lundberg makes some good rice dishes all instant. I have a list of all kinds of other gluten-free alternatives to mainstream food if you get cravings. I make gluten-free stir frys all the time and my own asian dishes.    Will provide you some links. PS Canyon makes some good bread products according to others so you can have burgers and hotdogs using them. Hell even found some gluten-free hot pocket knock offs.


Think of it as changing brands makes it simpler.....We do suggest a whole foods only diet to promote healing but treating yourself every now and then is fine if you can eat the gluten-free alternatives. I suggest making your own really and avoiding as much processed crap as you can. But this way you can take your own gluten-free verisons to get togethers and eat using disposable utensils. Allows you to fit in and get out a bit more, >.> and brag about your own cooking if you make it yourself.
