Puddings/graveys/etc

Recommended Posts

We went out to dinner the other day and I ordered my DD mashed pot. with gravey. My husband said it shouldn't be used as it was probably thickened with flour. I noticed today that there was mod. starch in the pudding pack we had here. *sigh* Are there any premade graveys, puddings, etc that are ok?? And my husband asked about icecream. I assumed that icecream that didn't have cookie or cake of some sort in it should be fine. He wasn't so sure. We only have Bryers here and there isnt' anything in it.

I got hit with a reality check on the MD's fries and started asking about those in resturants and found that one of the places we go to all the time roll them in flour. :( I hate this diet!

Anyone have some suggestions on any of these things?? Or am I at a total lose!!??

I have put together a list of things my son will eat for family members who keep him. I'd be glad to send it to you if that would help. He's 3 and very picky. I'd stay away from anything in a restaurant I couldn't verify was gluten-free. It's overwhelming at first, but it's not that bad after a while. I think most ice creams are ok, but always call the 1-800 # on the package to make sure. Edy's sent me a list last week that has most of their products on it. Most Ore Ida fries are ok (call heinz and they will send you a list), and Hunt's pudding and jello Snack Pack cups are ok. We keep those on hand. Not all starches are bad, but you have to call the company to find out what their sources are. I found some gluten-free gravy mixes at the health food store, but I can't remember the name. it was in a red package. I altready ate it and it was pretty good. You can also make gravies using corn starch as a thickener. I even made biscuits with gravy last week using a gluten-free baking mix and it was pretty good. I hope that helps.

Yes please I would love the list!! mrsnj91@aol.com Just put in the subject what it is. That would certainly save me time!!

See it is the whole cooking thing that is the problem! LOL! I am not a cook. I can but I HATE it! Totally. So we tend to order take out and go out a lot! :rolleyes: Like gravey....I never make it from scratch. Good thing is that when I cook it is a lot of basics. Meat, pot and veggies. But there are some things that stump me! And her being little I tend to have to bring things to much on or find treats,etc that an adult wouldn't have to deal with. Like pudding! ;)

As for the pudding , my son (2 1/2) loves Kraft's pudding, the vanille flavor, and thats gluten-free. We buy 1 or 2 packes a week, and its liek 96 cents for a pack (4 cups) at my Kroger.

"Orgran" has a gluten-free gravy mix that we use as gravy and I also sprinkle on things for seasoning sometimes.

Newman's Own Tomato & Basil Bombolina pasta sauce is gluten-free - my kids love it on gluten-free pasta.

I second the thought of staying away from eating out. It is very hard not to get gluten from restaurant eating. This was very hard for us at first, but now we are used to it. If you are not a cook, you can start out using more of the mixes and convenience foods until you are ready to move on. It is all so overwhelming at first. For the first year, I used more mixes than I do now. Amy's makes some gluten-free food that is microwavable. Check out some of the product lists I have seen around the board for help. I am just now starting to do more "from scratch" cooking. I used to (pre-celiac days) love to bake, but not to cook. Now I am learning to like to cook - I guess necessity is the best teacher! :rolleyes:

Kozy Shack puddings are great. I've had the tapioco, rice, and chocolate. I don't know if they have other flavors. The ones that are gluten-free clearly state it on the package. I hadn't heard of the brand and didn't know if I would like it, but I love it.
