What To Eat?

Recommended Posts

I'm really struggling to find things to eat. My blood work tested negative for Celiac, but my allergist and dietician want me on a gluten free diet due to my symptoms. The problems is I am also allergic to many, many foods. Yeast, apples, melon, tomatos, rice, potatos, tuna, strawberries, nuts, and more. I'm really struggling with finding foods to eat. I visit my allergist again in a few weeks, but I'd love any advice any of you have to offer. I'm basicly sticking with meat, veggies, some cheese, and popcorn for snacks.

Any thoughts?

Original Chebe bread has no yeast and they also have a mix that has no dairy. http://www.chebe.com/

Original mix -- INGREDIENTS: Manioc (tapioca) flour, modified manioc starch (100% manioc), dry milk, salt.

All Purpose mix -- INGREDIENTS: Manioc (tapioca) flour, modified manioc starch (100% manioc), iodine-free salt, cream of tartar, sodium bicarbonate.

Also, I didn't see yams in your list or teff or quinoa. There's a gluten-free instant quinoa that's really good. http://www.altiplanogold.com/

Hubby and I have been making pizza on top of a grilled portabello mushroom (treat them like little individual pizzas). It's gluten-free and it's healthy!

We also get hemp tortillas at Whole Foods that make great quesadillas. They are gluten-free with no rice.

Also, Tasty Bites might offer you some convenience foods if you like Indian food. I eat several of their dishes with tortilla chips, like a dip. http://www.tastybite.com/Gluten_Free_Food_s/56.htm

I notice on your list you say "and more" but we really have a better chance of suggesting something suitable if we know everything you can't have. Hope this offers a few ideas.

Question: How did you know you were allergic to those foods? I always think I'm being gluten-free, but then I start having reactions, which leads me to believe that it's "gluten and beyond." How can you tell what other foods it is? I have delayed reactions so I don't know?
