What Does A Typical Day Of Eating Look Like For You All?

Recommended Posts

Betty--why not try a salad for lunch? Unless you can't tolerate raw, I get the lettuce and veggie salad already in the bag. Add more veggies, or not, pour into a bowl, add dressing and eat. Also, a banana or some other fruit and a Lara bar make a decent quick breakfast. Your body will have a herder time healing if you don't stay nourished. :)

hi patti, I can't eat salad, tried it again the other night, its just too hard on my colon..I do grab a banana once in awhile. I look at the bars when ever I'm at whole foods, but the chocolate covered ones I want have dairy [lactose intolerant] and if they have lots of nuts thats no good either..so I end up starving all day, then get b%$@#y :unsure: I know its not good to go all day without food.

Oh Betty :( --we have to find you something to eat!! Cream of Rice with a little pure maple syrup is filling and really good. You can make it right in the bowl. Do you like hot cocoa? I make mine with 1 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp. pure cocoa powder and Vance's Dairy Free. Microwave 2 minutes. You could use rice or almond milks, too. Another lunch idea--make a lot of rice at the beginning of the week. Take some each day for lunch and top it with cooked stir-fry veggies you get frozen w/ no sauce. Also, put some rice into gluten-free chicken broth for a simple soup--good for the bad tummy days :)

make a bit extra and take it for lunch so you have something to eat.

grab some fruit and nuts.

bring a rice cake or two.

there are lots of options.

skinnyminny -- I have a question do you eat GLUTEN?

"with Corn bread spagetti with applesauce"

"Spinach Lasanga"

Don't mind me -- I can't eat many things other Celiac's can like corn, dairy, and anything packaged etc. What I listed above you posted are they just a name brand or are you eating gluten?

I'm Italian and miss pasta Sundays.

But do eat something called "spagetti squash" that is really yummy and its NOT spagetti just a carb 'like' squash that is celiac disease safe food. It is called that only because it looks like spagetti in it's texture. But NOT spagetti. You bake it in the oven and you can pour pasta sause over it. TRY IT!!! Or I put olive oil on it with seasoning and it's wonderful.

I'm a bit late to the party, but here's my usual menu

Beakfast - gluten-free sausages and gluten-free turkey bacon, sometimes gluten-free Heinz baked beans. Fresh squeezed juice

Morning snack - raisins (I'm addicted to those things now) or a fruit leather. At least 2 mugs or more of green tea (no sugar - with lemon or the jasmine varieties)

Lunch - usually leftovers from dinner the night before (I make enough so me and my DH can have lunch the next day)

Afternoon snack - mroe fruit, carrots or sometimes a bit of DF chocolate.

Dinner: I usually have a weekly rota worked out of chicken, beef and occasionally lamb recipes. This week was Thai Beef in Lettuce wraps (homemade soy sauce), sweet and sour chicken (I used shredded cauliflower for rice), Lemon Mustard chicken (gluten free Dijon mustard), Beef Tenderloins in a wine sauce with sauted baby bella mushrooms, lamb stew in the crockpot, chicken with lime dressing, avocado mash, and blackbean and corn salsa. Also a Vietnamese Lemon chicken. These are all super easy and quick to make (all mine are tailored more to the other food allergies I have, most of these can be pretty much done as is.). They all take under 30 minutes to throw together, unless you marinate like I do (overnight) or do the slow cooker (crock pot). I also usually have some sort of roast/sauted veggies. I roast if I have more time (30 minutes) or saute for less time.

Wait a minute--doesn't EVERYBODY get dizzy and nauseated if they don't eat every 3-4 hours?

My gosh, I thought that was NORMAL. :blink:

I eat eggs for breakfast, green tea, and a large cup of watered-down cranberry juice

snack: banana, or corn chips, or protein bar, or yogurt

lunch: corn tortilla/ safe deli meat wrap, or sushi, or last night's leftovers, or salad (baby greens, goat cheese, toasted pecans or walnuts, dried cranberries, diced red peppers, shredded carots, green onions and raspberry vinaigrette dressing)

snack, same as above, plus dark chocolate chips :)

dinner: grilled fish or meat and vegies, rice or potato, and fruit, or stir fry, or casserole using up last night's leftovers (I make a cream sauce with butter, cornstarch and chicken stock, and add leftovers, shredded cheese, herbs etc. and bake), or fish/meat "breaded" with potato flakes and fried plus pea's'n'carrots and rice or potatoes. I've been making a lot of sauteed spinach and garlic lately.

snack: fruit, plus more dark chocolate chips :)

Yes, I have to eat every 2-3 hours. People think I eat constantly at work. I eat in almost every class at uni too.

Breakfast: Brown rice cereal (from Whole Foods) with Acidolpholus (sp?) milk, or scrambled eggs with ham; juice & coffee

Snack: Cottage cheese with peaches or rice cakes with peanut butter

Lunch: Usually left-overs; for emergency, I have Lean Cuisine's Glazed Chicken, fruit

Snack: Celery with peanut butter; EneryG crackers with cheese

Dinner: I think the breads on the market suck, as well as all the pasta I've tried. I prefer to just wrap a hamburger in lettuce with all the fixings or put beef strogonaff, or other sauces, on rice. I have a salad just about every night (for IBS). I try to modify our favorites (like chicken stir fry) with gluten-free soy sauce and oyster sauce. gluten-free breadcrumbs are pretty handy for modifying other recipes.

Dessert: Hot chocolate

I keep a High Protein Boost in my car (I live there, driving four kids around), for emergency only (because it's high in calories).

Skoki Mom,

You HAVE to eat, take care of YOURSELF, to have the strength to work through your situation. If one of your kids had to live gluten free, would you have already figured out what you could feed them? You have to do that for yourself. Concentrate on eating protein...buy cheese in big blocks, yogurt by the pint, ground beef in bulk (freeze in portions), even hot dogs. Add lots of fruit and vegetables and drink water. You can do it. My prayers are with you.

Oh man, the truth comes out. I don't eat much of anything, to be honest. Yet I'm still a fat cow, so I really don't deserve to eat, IMO. I also am on the verge of bankruptcy, so I don't buy any special food anymore except the odd bag of cornflakes.

I worked night shift last night. Between midnight and 7 am I chewed a half a pack of gum and had a couple glasses of water. I tried to ignore the croissants and jam that showed up at 5 am and someone brought me an orange. But, I didn't have a knife so it's still in my bag.

When I got out of bed at 4 pm I had an apple.

I currently have a potato in the oven which, once baked, I will eat with butter and sour cream. If the Celiac doesn't kill you, you may as well go for the heart attack.

On my coffee break at work tonight I will eat a small bag of microwave popcorn and enjoy one of my remaining Cokes, as I am giving up Coke in an effort to reduce my grocery bill.

I'll probably chew the other half of the pack of gum at work tonight as well.

When my kids are with me, I usually have either a piece of fruit OR cornflakes and tea for breakfast.

I hardly ever eat lunch anymore. All lunch food has gluten in it, I'm too lazy to try to figure something else out. I eat Thai Kitchen stuff for lunch when I am working dayshift. So, I eat lunch about 2 days in 9.

I have to cook dinner when my kids are here. These are the only "real" meals I eat in a week. I'll make somesort of meat or casserole with 2 vegetables on the side. We usually go to my parents for one meal when I'm on days off (if it's a Sunday), and my dad takes us all out for a meal on Friday at the mall, where I am sick beyond death of New York Fries, but its' supposed to be about family, not the food.

I eat a big bowl of air popped popcorn almost evernight that I'm not at work. With lots of butter.

I think I did this already but it's fun, so...

Today:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs in Food For Life sprouted corn tortillas and a bananna

Lunch: Turkey sandwich wrap things wich consisted of - Food for Life sprouted corn tortillas (my day seems to be revolving around these) with Applegate Farms smoked turkey, raw spinach and that raw cashew ranch dressing recipe Tarnalberry posted (I put that stuff on everything - it works as a dip, spread, dressing - yum)

Snack: apple with peanut butter

Dinner: Brown rice with lentils and raw broccoli, cucumber and carrots - I'll try to avoid more corn tortillas

I'll need to throw something sweet in there at some point - that has yet to be determined...maybe buckwheat waffles or chocolate or something random like that.
