Low Fat, High Carb, Gluten Free/dairy Free Recipes Preferrably For Christmas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Ever since going gluten free, it's been a BIG pain finding good things to carb-up on (a training thing. One day of very low fat, high carbs). At first I thought it was easy, but this time I actually read the labels and found out most everything I was eating was pretty fatty.

The only thing I could find this week was pancakes, cereal, and pasta. All of which were kind of boring, and the pasta was definitely not my bag.

My next carb-up happens to fall on Christmas and I'd greatly appreciate it if you all share some low fat treats.

BTW how do you use that search function? I do the "search item site:www.glutenfreeforum.com" thing, but the results are always very poor. Is that just what I have to deal with?

grains, legumes, starchy vegetables are all higher in carbohydrates and fat free or almost fat free.

It's best to avoid fiber and fructose as much as you can during a carb-load.

Last night I did a lot of searching on the net and decided to go with a Mexican Christmas. Lots of rice, corn tortillas, quinoa (hope it doesn't have too much fiber), and sugary stuff.

White rice has less fiber than brown rice.

Quinoa I believe has quite a bit of fiber, as well as some protein. If it's ok, there is a quinoa/corn blend pasta that is really tasty imo.

What about potatoes?

There have been a few threads in the sports/fitness section that might be helpful to you for gluten-free carb loading ideas, here is an example:

Potatoes are fine, it's just that I was starting to get really into my carb ups and all. All those tasty little pastries I was discovering are now a thing of the past, and sadly can never be eaten again. Now I'm stuck with oats, potatoes, corn, and other less elaborate things.

Thanks for that link by the way. I'll be sure to look all over that forum for some ideas. So far it looks like they haven't had much more than what I found so far. :(

.... Oh well, at least I have my bacon. :D

I enjoy listening to Ted Talks.  I found this one on dementia.  The take?  No success in developing drugs to stop dementia, so they are looking for ways to prevent it through diet!  Food can heal!   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f0WCb23KPEw Interesting!
