You asked how I keep from being hungry if I go to restaurants/parties and don’t eat.  I just eat ahead of time.

There used to be a thread going here where people posted what they were cooking for dinner that night.  It all sounded delicious, and not as if people were depriving themselves at all!

Omg I just saw an add for hungry root which is apparently vegan and gluten free meal delivery service and i thought of you !! Hope it works out 

Thanks! I've actually tried them before but I'm not a huge fan of zoodles and other vegetable noodle dishes. I wish you could buy their ingredients separately because their sauces were really good. I love soba noodles and Banza pasta so I will probably rely on those a lot (though some soba noodles are blended with wheat, so I'll need to find pure buckwheat noodles). I have an appointment with a dietician who specializes in both vegan/vegetarian diets and celiac disease on Tuesday so I am hoping she can help me figure out a grocery list for the first time I go shopping for gluten-free stuff. I just have no idea what to buy because it's not as simple as swapping out all the gluten-containing things I eat for the gluten-free versions. That would be super unhealthy, and not everything has a counterpart. This is going to be really hard but I know I'm going to figure it out because I have to. I'm not happy about it, but I can do it.

I might be able to do that on the weekends or if I know the plans ahead of time. Sometimes plans materialize spontaneously, or on a weekday, which is rough. I'm usually hungry after work, but I definitely don't have time to go home, eat, and come back out to the city. I think this is just going to be one of those things I won't be able to figure out until I figure it out.

The single most important thing is to get off wheat. The beginning is the hardest. I think that since you have been eating a wheat diet since birth a few more weeks to break the Wheat Addiction will not cause harm. Shopping is easy. You read the label. If it has wheat, find something else. Tuna salad with Fritos was a favorite of mine, also watermelon. Your tastes in food will evolve once you've broken the addiction. Follow a sensible diet, just leave out the wheat. You were seeing an endocrinologist for low thyroid. and that seems a common symptom among celiac.  now that you are off wheat it will improve as the nutrition you ingest actually gets absorbed. Get your iodine level and D3 level checked. Iodine is critical to thyroid function vitamin D is involved in mood and most Americans are deficient of both. I eat a sheet of sushi seaweed every day for iodine. 10,000 iu. vitamin D3 lightened up my life again. You were lucky to get the new doctor. You might have spent years being misdiagnosed and mistreated.

Celiacs need to avoid more than wheat.  We need to avoid rye- that's pretty easy as it isn't in much and usually combined with wheat.   Barley/ barley malt is another thing we need to avoid.  That is in a few things.  Oats must be labeled gluten-free or else they are presumed to contain some accidental wheat.

After almost two years I have found eating at home to be enjoyable and delicious.  A few of my keys to this are a great source of recipes:  www.iowagirleats.com

and a way to stay organized:  www.plantoeat.com helps take me recipes and create a calendar and shopping list.  Please contact me if you plan to sign up for this.  I will give you my real name so you can have access to my recipes so you don’t have to go through the work of uploading.  It may also get me a discount if you use my name as a referral.

I also have a grocery store that will deliver for free if my total is over 100 and they have an amazingly easy website.

it took me a while to get here but it is very delicious and my heart and tummy are satisfied.  I would love to answer questions about the above resources.
