Sorry your allergic to EVERYTHING! As far as being hungery, I eat alot of meat to fight hunger during the dat. Eggs in the morning, lunch meat during the day and chicken or pork ect. at night. Large portions of these should help. I stay away from sode, it's bad for you anyway. I drink ALOT of water, coffee and Arizona Green Tea. Water gets boring, so I use the Crystal Lite packets that you put in the bottles. I sure hope their gluten-free because I've been drinking them! Not 100% positive though. Snack on baby carrots or fruit in between meals. Some cottage cheese with peaches or raspberries maybe? Hope I helped a little bit!!

I recomment eating a lot of meat, vegetables, and white or brown rice. I find making large amounts of *simple* stir-fry a couple times a week generates enough leftovers for in-between meals. Just in the meats and vegetables category, there is lots of yummy food! Also how about potatoes? I personally adore sweet potatoes/ yams, you can wrap them in a freezer bag and put in the microwave for 12 minutes and it's another easy food. Bananas are another inexpensive tasty food that's great for you. All these foods are great for you to eat anyway, your body will enjoy the nutrients.

I also have yearned for caffeine but the two times I tried it during this saga both caused severe unpleasantness, so I intend to stay off of it until the guts are fully healed (who knows how long that'll be).

Good luck, and let us know how it's going! :)

this is a good basic starter list that a freind on another board made up and gave me permission to copy. I thought she did a great job on it and it is well worth sharing. I hope it helps.

Here's the basics for a simple gluten free trial. It involves no specialty products.

fresh fruit

fresh veggies

nuts and seeds (unflavored)

fresh (unbreaded, unmarinated, unprocessed) meats.

fresh (unbreaded, unmarinated, unprocessed) poultry NOTE: read the label on poultry - many fresh ones have added weight that's got other ingredients - make sure it's either minimally processed or states added weight is only water

fresh (unbreaded, unmarinated, unprocessed) seafood

eggs

milk, cheese, butter

use oils or butter for cooking instead of sprays

tofu (unmarinated and unseasoned)

fresh potatoes (you can do just about anything you want with them - bake, roast, fry, etc)

beans & legumes

rice

When buying hamburgers, many brands have added flavoring or breadcrumbs. It really is easy to make them so it might be easier for now to do just that. It's easy - ground beef, egg, chopped onion and Lea & Perrin (this brand is gluten free, not all are).

I try to stick with McCormick's brand of seasonings because of companies adding fillers.

Heinz ketchup is gluten free

Kraft has a bunch of gluten free salad dressings. Check their web site. Salad dressings that have been confirmed to be gluten free can be used as marinades.

Hellman's mayo is gluten free.

For soy sauce, make sure the bottle clearly states wheat free. Real soy sauce always has wheat.

If you really want pasta, the Ancient Harvest (corn and quinoa) is the best though many also like Tinkyada. Avoid the others.

If you really want bread, stick with Kinnikinnick. More stores seem to be carrying it in their health food section. Ener-G is ok but only if you use it for french toast or grilled cheese. It's not all that great plain.

I too am a sweet potato junkie, but please don't use plastic in the microwave. It really is bad for you. Johns Hopkins just recently issued a warning about the toxins it releases into your food. I put my sweets in the microwave bare-nekkid on a plate & they cook up just fine! (Be sure to pierce the skin so it won't explode on you though. And turn them over once or twice as they cook.)

Here are some recipes that should be ok for you:

Sweet Indian Curry

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 ginger root, minced

4 fresh tomatoes, blended until juice (I cut them up into small pieces and use a garlic press)

3 cloves of garlic, minced

5 green onions, diced

1 onion, diced

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon coriander

1 teaspoon turmeric

2-3 tablespoons of honey (add more or less depending on taste)

2-3 tablespoons of olive oil

Optional: 1-2 cups of vegetables or other meat.

Cook onions, garlic, and ginger root in the oil until done. Add tomato juice, spices, honey, and lime juice. Add vegetables or shrimp and simmer until done. Serve over basmati rice.

Carrot Stir fry

1 bag small baby carrots, or 2 cups carrots

10 mushrooms, sliced

5 green onions

1 yellow or sweet onion

2 Tbl fresh lemon juice

2 Tbl olive oil

Cook all ingredients on high heat for 10 minutes, then simmer until done.

Homemade Sweet Potato Fries

2 large sweet potatoes, cut into thin slices

Mrs. Dash Original Spice, or your favorite spice

olive oil

Rub olive oil on a baking pan, then place the sweet potatoes on the pan and sprinkle the spice on top. Bake at about 350 for approximately 15 minutes. These will burn fast so check quite freqently. Serve with ketchup.

Omelette

1 green/yellow/orange pepper, diced

1 red pepper, diced

1 onion, diced

3-4 cloves of garlic, mined

1 tbsp Mrs. Dash Original Spice

1-2 tbsp olive oil

2-3 eggs

Cook vegetables in oil for 5 to 10 minutes. Add eggs and spice and mix altogether until the eggs are done.

Chicken and Peach Salsa

1-2 cups of water

1 package of chicken cut up for a stir fry

5 peaches, diced

1 yellow pepper, diced

1 red onion, diced

2-3 cloves of garlic

cilantro leaves to taste

optional (1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice)

pepper to taste

Cook chicken, garlic, and 1/2 of the red onion in the water until the chicken is done. I like to let the meat sit in the juices for a while. Place all other ingredients including the other 1/2 of the red onion in a bowl. Mix cooked ingredients with uncooked ingredients. Serve.

This is actually quite good! I got this idea from the Paleo Diet book.

Quick and Easy Stove Top Meatloaf

Extra lean hamburger

1/2 - 1 cup Heniz ketchup (Heniz ketchup should be ok, but I'd check to make sure)

1 onion, diced

2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

pepper

1 egg

Mix everything together in a wok, deep frying pan, or a large pot except ketchup. Add ketchup later on to allow moisture. Cook until done.

Stir Fry

fresh broccoli

baby carrots

cucumber or zucchini

whole cloves

basil

garlic powder

pepper

olive oil

Cook all ingredients in a wok or a large pot until done.

Stay away from all soy sauce, gluten free or not, soy. Corn (high fructose corn syrup) is in everything but I don't avoid it in my toothpaste, soaps, meds, etc. yet because it doesn't bother me too much.

Stay away from anything with vegetible oil - soy and corn which eliminates all fast food. Stay away from soda, I "heard" have NOT verified, that the pink and blue sweateners are corn derivitives but don't use those anyway, I use the yellow packets without any problem--the regular of course has corn.

I eat lots of meat and veggies at every meal and my 2 to 3 in-between meal snacks. You might look for Chebe breads - LOVE those. Also check out the Enjoy Life foods but pay attention to the products with vanilla, I think the vanilla is corn derived and they make me sick. I make my own vanilla from potato vodka.

I drink coffee and green tea in the AM for my caffine (not much) and water or margaritas or tea for the rest of the time.

You don't mention peanuts but if those do bother you, there are some other nut butters out there that work well. And, someone on this board pointed me towards http://www.econaturalsolutions.com/site/704463/page/45029 and they have soy, corn, gluten, dairy free throat losangers (sp???).

I now am to the point where I avoid most styrofoam cups, plates, plastic utensils, etc. due to coating everything with corn. Also, wax paper has a coating of corn so you should not use that either. Sorry...it really isn't that bad, you just have to really watch what you use and eat, a lot.

I used to make up my own trail mix to have around. That staved off my hunger and provided good nutrition. You could, of course, avoid the nuts you can't have and try almonds, cashews, pine nuts, hazelnuts, etc. I put all kinds of dried fruit in it, like papaya, pineapple, mango, apricots, bananas, apples, cranberries, raisins, etc.

Making up your own is the best option because pre-packaged trail mix might have an oat flour coating to keep it from sticking.

It gets expensive, but it's better than starving!
