Newly Diagnosed: Trying To Make It Work With Food Plan

Recommended Posts

I kind of don't really miss the bread and pasta, but the thought of no more wings or graham crackers really gets to me. Dropping weight, finally, but I am concerned about getting enough fiber and nutrition without the whole grains. Any suggestions>??

SG, there are lots of things! whole grain brown rice, baking with bean flours, adding some whole ground flax seeds to cooking, finding gluten-free granola bars with high fiber, cereals that we can eat, fruit and veggies provide fiber too. You don't have to cut out pasta, in fact, there are a lot of whole grain rice pastas that are very good!

I also take Fiber Choice (I checked with company, it's gluten-free) which is otc, chewable fiber supplement.

I'm sure others will be posting even more things I didn't come up with!

Not to worry! :)

I've heard there are some wings that are gluten-free, or you can make them yourself, AND there is a bakery that makes gluten-free graham crackers

it gets easier, you really do not have to "do without" much of anything except of course the evil gluten!

Nini,

I looked at that website and their stuff looks WONDERFUL.

Have you tried any of it? What do you recommend?

I'm still hesitant to pay exhorbitant shipping charges for food that most of the general population can go buy at the corner convenience store...

they had some at our last support group meeting and EVERYTHING I tried was absolutely delicious! I love the butterfly cookies that are like a powdered sugar cookie with a berry filling, they are sooooooo decadent! Also, I really was impressed with the graham crackers.

There are a lot of naturally gluten-free foods that have more fiber (and vitamins/minerals) than wheat, barley, rye, or oats. Brown and wild rices are good starts, but quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth and millet are good sources as well. Lentils and beans of all varieties also are good sources of fiber, with more protein than the gluten-free grains. And many many fruits and vegetables are good sources of fiber as well.
