Wow I haven't been on this message board in a while. Hi everybody B) . Anyway, I got that entero lab testing done and the results said I had a gluten gene and a celiac gene, and it also said something about me not having dairy anymore :o . Now I'm dairy free as well as gluten free. Going dairy free is extremely hard! Does anyone else out here dairy free?? I miss chocolate and all that other junk with milk in it :(

Yes, me, lol. I was just diagnosed by Enterolab--about the same as you. I have the main gene for Celiac, and I'm definitely sensitive to gluten as well as casein. My first thought was OMGosh how will I ever do this, but actually it hasn't been that hard. I do miss some things, but there are some chocolates which don't contain milk products (mostly dark chocolate and mostly in health food type stores which tend to carry a few things without main allergins). The thing I miss the most is my BUTTER, lol. I used it on everything. I found some Health Balance margerine in Whole Foods Market which does not contain casein or transfats, etc. It's not bad...it does contain soy though. Most of the foods I've been enjoying are okay. I also found some cookies and bars at a local health food store which are very tasty and don't contain dairy or gluten (I'll have to go home and look to get the brand and name correct though). Look for a thread I started, I think in the "Products" section in which I asked for everyone's top 5 gluten/casein free foods. There are some great suggestions for some of the things you are missing.

Here is a link to the thread I mentioned:

Hello,

I'm dairy free. as well. I find that harder than being gluten-free. I was diagnosed by Enterolab to be dietary gluten intolerant, with no malabsorption. I find I react quicker, and with more intensity when I consume dairy. It really sucks! :( Being a vegetarian, I never really drank milk, just ate cheese. I can't enjoy that anymore. I'm very limited to what I can eat. But, I feel great!

Good luck! :)

I am also dairy free and gluten free. The diet was hard at first, but now I find it really easy and I actually enjoy eating this way. I eat so much healthier now! If you need any meal ideas or recipes, just let me know.

I'm also dairy free, and also find it harder than gluten free. But you can still have chocolate! Dark chocolate is usually dairy free (and usually gluten free), and most coco powder is Gluten-free Casein-free. Silk makes a nog that is CF and soy free (not to mention gluten free). And there are soy yogurts out there too. It's not the same - and cheese... why do they have to put casein in "dairy free soy cheese"!?!?!?! But it's worth it, and you can still have hot chocolate at night! ;-) (I make mine with almond milk.)

I went dairy-free two months ago and haven't felt better in a very long time. It is hard, esp. going out to eat and at other people's house because they don't think about butter. And it can be hard to find a dressing that isn't boring Italian, but Annies makes a sesame ginger one that I LOVE. One of my newest learned things is that Amy's makes frozen dinners that say dairy-free gluten-free on them for when you are in a pinch for lunch. They are $4, but it's worth it to have a hot quick meal with no worries. I also use Flieshman's stick margarine. We have only found it at Kroger, but it has no dairy and says lactose-free on the front (it's casein free to though). I'm not sure if there's soy in it - it should be mostly oil. It's not the best for you health-wise I'm sure, but it's good to have on grits or when you want to bake something.

You would think all this cutting out would make me slim and trim, but I haven't lost a pound! Make sure you take your vitamins!

Velvet Brownies

2/3 cup gluten-free flour mix

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 egg whites

1 egg

3/4 cup sugar

6 tablepoons baby food pear or pea puree or unsweetened applesauce (I tried the recipe with pear puree).

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Optional: 1 tablespoon chopped peacans, walnuts, or macadamia nutes.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8"x8" pan with vegetable oil spray (I just used wax paper and olive oil). In a measuring cup, combine the flour mix, cocoa, cinnamon, and salt. In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites and egg slightly. Add the sugar, puree, oil, and vanilla and wisk until blended, but don't overbeat. Pour into the prepared pan and sprinkle on the nuts (if used). Bake until set and a tester comes out clean, about 25 minutes (I'd go a few minutues longer, like 27). Cool before cutting into 2" squares. Makes 16 brownies.

From, "The Gluten-free Gourmet, Cooks Fast and Healthy" by Bette Hagman p.140.

These brownies are really soft, fluffy, and light. I think they are great :) I hope you like them too!
