Question For Those Age 15-25... Ish

Recommended Posts

make gluten-free veggie burgers. requires some work, but you can make a big batch one day, and keep your own in the freezer for just the occasion.

I have tried. Countless times to make veggie burgers and they just crumble and fall apart. Even tried it with Gluten free TVP etc. I found one more recipe today using kidney beans but I am afraid to try it. My hubby got so mad when my last veggie burger attempt crumble all over the grill and made a terrible mess.

I can't do dairy either so I lack the binding agent I think.

No, I have never heard of them. Really? Are they available in any store or just on line? I might have to go google them right now! Thanks!

I just checked on line. They are more than 15 grams of fat for 1 burger. I am a little sensitive to fats and I been trying to lose the weight I have gained since going gluten free. Not exactly a good choice. Thanks though, perhaps some day I will get them.

It's healthy, natural fat though (it comes from ground raw sunflower seeds).... Anyway, if you ever decide to try them, I find them at Whole Foods and other health food stores.

I make mine with garbanzo beans, primarily. If I can find the recipe, I'll post it. kinda a cross between veggie burgers and falafels. they definitely don't fall apart.

If you are sensitive to fat, then you should avoid them. But if you are trying to lose weight, you should know that it's a myth that cutting out fat from your diet will make you lose weight. The concept caught on because it was easy to understand and easy for companies to make a buck off, but science didn't follow through with supporting studies.

Fat is filling. People who eat less fat don't weigh less than those who eat more.

I don't think it's been mentioned yet, but I'm coming in late and may have missed it,,,,,,,I think dating with celiac disease would be an important topic for this age group. Ideas for gluten-free dates, how to explain celiac disease to your new person, how to meet others with celiac disease....etc.

Thanks! I'd appreciate it. I am always willing to try new recipes and I love falafels. :D

I am sensitive to fat. It never really settles well with me.

I'm almost 22, so honestly I'd like to see someone talk about guys/boyfriends, and how it make it easier to finding one who will always accept that you've got Celiac, and that its not as scary as it may sound (for the guy)..or, even a little more extreme, how you and the guy could share a first kiss without HIM making the move (sorry these are dumb suggestions probably :P )

Crazy as it may seem--i bring my own dinner to weddings...yeah i feel singled out a bit but better than getting sick. I find out what they're serving and tailor my meal as close as possible--white dollar store plates come in handy as i just leave it on the table with the rest of the plates. Kitchen staff have been great about keeping food warm or nuking it and i make sure container is bomb proof so no one can mess with it B)

debmidge - to address your question.

i went to the canadian celiac conference this weekend and was speaking with the coordinator for next year. togehter, we have devised an idea of having a program for those in that age group. i understand the whole 21+ ordeal (well, 18/19+ here...), but you cannot segregate a group for all. anything, highschool and college is combined that way. and older people can speak to the younger regarding university experiences.

anyway, i am coordinating this aspect of the program, and thought i would get some feedback. i think it would be awesome, however, if we could have our own conference all together... but i dont think we would get enough interest.

This sounds like a great idea, however I have a suggestion. I think people in the 15 - 25 age group, while no matter what your age we will all always share certain issues, I think that is a very broad age group and I think breaking that into 2 segments would be more beneficial. For instance I think those in a 15 - 21 age group would benefit from focusing on how to interact in social situations (ie: hanging out with friends, high school & college life/parties, etc.). I think those in the 21/22 - older would benefit from suggestions on how to cope in the workplace (ie: company functions, work lunches/dinners, etc).

I guess my point is, a 15 year old would be much more concerned with fitting in and not being an outcast, whereas a 25 year old is most likely more concerned with etiquette and is this going to reflect poorly on my job.

Like I said, I think it's a great idea; but I think it could be tailored to be more beneficial.

i agree, however, the age group wasn't my selection.

I feel a little silly posting here since I'm 50! But about the veggie burgers falling apart, it occurs to me that the gluten is probably what binds the other kind together, & if it's anything like baked goods, it might help to add a little xanthan gum. And maybe some egg or egg powder. Both are good at keeping bread & cake from crumbling to bits. (I've been baking like a maniac since my diagnosis, just to prove I can still do it! It took a few false starts but I'm getting the hang of it.)

Good luck,

Leah
