Trouble

Recommended Posts

Ok all...so my sister was diagnosed with Celiac about 3 months ago. She's gone gluten-free, along with the rest of the house, and is doing somewhat better, but not really.

We're starting to run into trouble here at home, because our meals and snack foods are starting to get old.

Can ya'll suggest some foods that are good to eat, both as snacks, and for meals (and are safe, of course).

Thanks so much, we really appreciate it.

-Jordan and Sari

Thanks so much for the reply! Quesadillas are a great idea...

We've tried a lot of pasta, and have not found any good ones...any ideas?

FWIW, the EXACT same day that my sister was diagnosed with Celiac (well, the same day as she had her endoscope), I was diagnosed as a T1 diabetic. I've since had a scope of my own, which came back negative. My dad has all the symptoms, but refuses to have a scope, because he says "ignorness is bliss"

We can't have the blood test because we are all immune deficient, so it would come back as negative even if we had Celiac.

More stuff...

Snacks:

- Homemade Cereal Bars (I use the Rice Krispy Treat recipe and substitute Cocoa Pebbles or Fruity Pebbles instead of the Rice Krispies)

- Trail Mix (nuts, M&Ms, raisins)

- Bumble Bars (google it, they're awesome)

- Glutino pretzels are good

- Yogurt

- Pickles

- Italian Ice, Popsicles

Meals:

- Chili

- Stir-frys (be cautious with soy sauce- many brands have wheat, but some don't)

- Hamburgers and Hot Dogs (we haven't found good gluten-free buns so far, so we just skip the buns)

- Omelets

- Baked Potato Bar (Bake big potatoes and lay out all the stuff for people to top their own: cheese, sour cream, butter, broccoli, chili, chicken, etc.)

Other:

- Bob's Red Mill brownie mix is pretty decent, and there are lots of from-scratch recipes around here.

- We love Namaste chocolate cake mix

- We also use Pamela's Pancake and Baking mix to make several kinds of cookies

- I've heard that the Royal brand no-bake cheesecake mix is gluten-free as long as you make your own gluten-free crust. I have NOT double checked this personally.

The best gluten-free pasta we've tried so far has definitely been Tinkyada, which we get at Whole Foods. It actually holds up like wheat pasta; everything else turned to mush on me. I use it to make all our "normal" favorites-- mac and cheese, spaghetti, baked penne, etc. I've heard good things about DeBoles, so I bought some, but haven't tried it yet.
