Well, they have mixes for all kind of stuff out there, where do you live? here in Texas we can find gluten free stuff in Kroger's also in HEB but that store is in Texas only, you can also buy online. There's gluten free cereals, breads, muffins, pancakes, waffles. For bread you will find that if you buy it already made it's going to suck, so the best bet is to buy Gluten-Free Pantry French Bread and Pizza mix, it is great for pizza and bread, for waffles I buy Van's and for pancakes Pamela's mix but any mix will work fine for pancakes. There are gluten free noodles/pasta too but I'm not a big fan of them, I prefer to buy rice noodles from the chinese market or just look in the Asian section at your local store. But i got to tell you, for me vegetables and fruits are the best, healthier and good just make sure you eat a wide variety.

I'm also allergic to dairy. Here are some of the products I use that are both dairy and gluten-free. Some are a little expensive so I ration them out or use them only occasionally.

Gillian's Rolls-french and raisin You can make pizzas with the french rolls or use them for sandwiches

Foods by George brownies

Namaste chocolate, vanilla and spice cake mixes. I bake them as cupcakes and freeze. They make alot so are worth the price I think.

Vegan Gourmet cheese

Arrowhead Mills maple buckwheat flakes cereal -labeled gluten-free

Enjoy Life chocolate chips are dairy free

I love the Pamela's mix for pancakes but it has buttermilk powder in it. You can substitute soymilk in gluten-free pancake recipies just make sure that the soymilk is gluten-free. Not all are.

I posted a recipe for pizza crust here that I like.

Good luck. You will find more variety in time. Good for you for sticking with it and having such a good attitude about this!

Hi there! It's so hard to start a gluten-free, dairy-free diet, but I promise it will get easier as you figure out what you can eat. I have done it, so I know what you're up against. Try searching on the internet for "Gluten-free Casein-free". That means gluten free, casein free. Casein is a protein in milk - and things that are casein free are almost always free of milk.

Some more ideas for Gluten-free Casein-free things you can find in regular stores:

Tigger & Pooh cereal (by General Mills)

Dora the Explorere Cereal (by General Mills)

[Avoid other commercially available cereals, as they have gluten from wheat or oats or barley malt.]

Marshmallow Fluff

Air popped popcorn

In Health Food Markets or online:

Milk replacement: My kids really like Almond Breeze almond milk - we order it by the case from our local food cooperative, but you can also find it in health food markets. If you can tolerate soy, then you can probably have soymilk, too. They both taste pretty good. Rice milk is good, too, but do not use Rice Dream because it has a very small amount of barley (gluten) in it.

Van's wheat-free, gluten-free waffles (some Targets have these in the BACK freezer case with the vegetarian frozen meals, not with the regular waffles)

Alexia frozen fries (again, some Targets have these in the back freezer case - read labels as some varieties contain butter, but many don't)

If your mom is looking to order online, tell her to look at Kinnikinnick's line of casein-free foods. http://www.kinnikinnick.com/ They have a whole line that is Gluten-free Casein-free that includes frozen pizza crusts, Montanas chocolate chip cookies, etc.

We make pizzas with the small Kinnikinnick crusts, and we just put all the toppings on and skip the cheese. Provided you have a good sauce (we use Enricos but there are others) and toppings (Hormel pepperonis are fine), it still has that pizza taste.

We make pasta with meat sauce using Tinkyada pasta (the best gluten-free pasta I have found), ground beef and Enricos pasta sauce (again, I'm sure there are other sauces that are fine).

A chocolate cake mix for special occasions - we use 1-2-3 Gluten Free's chocolate bundt cake, and I make it with almond milk and added applesauce rather than regular milk. It calls for chocolate chips, and we use Enjoy Life chocoate chips.

Brands to check out:

Enjoy Life (I don't recommend the cereal) www.enjoylifefoods.com

1-2-3 Gluten Free (some baking mixes call for milk but it can be substituted) - this is kind of an expensive brand, but worth it for a special treat

Kinnikinnick

Tinkyada

Good luck, and stick around. There are many people here who avoid both gluten and dairy - so you should be able to find other ideas as you read.

Once you get used to the new diet it is easy. I do not eat dairy, gluten, or animals and find that I have plenty to eat. Take your favourite things and find replacements. For cheese go with:

ya'll have been a very big help!!!! my doctor basically said in our 2 hour visit that no red meat, gluten-free diet, prilosec every morning then take my lactaid before any meals that may have milk in them ((this is because my lactaid didnt work and i asked why, he said our bodies have so much stomache acid that the lactaid gets burned up before it even gets to coat our stomaches)) i never thought of that, he's pretty smart dr! lol! he put me on a lower dose of birth control cuz it could cause my pancreatitis to flare up again, which i didn't know. and more frequent smaller meals with no fat,fried or greasy food...the hard part is, he said not to go over 5 grams of fat a day...... it would iritate my gastritis in my stomache. that's really hard to do!!!!! i've already lost 7 pounds in 10 days! i think that's amazing but i ain't gettin that much calories and i eat all the time! i wonder how much i will lose

you're definitely not alone. lots of us have those restrictions. you'll find that it does get easier with time, but the learning curve is rough.

browse online for recipes, check out the recipe section here, go to your library looking for cookbooks, and think about what kinds of things you'd like to make that you can cook from scratch.

there are lots and lots of foods that are pretty easy to make that you can make from whole, naturally gluten free foods, that you don't have to find a specialty store for. italian foods (risottos, veggies), mexican foods (tacos, echiladas), chinese food (stir-fries), japanese food (sushi), american (chicken soup and beef stew are mainstays at my house)... the list goes on.

you'll get there!

Dear dixiedelight01,

I have a list that should really help. This is overwhelming. I went through this with myself in August of 2006. You spend most of your day cooking and cleaning obsessively. The rest you are on the phone with reps from companies trying to find out what is safe. I decided to save you the trouble!

1. There are a number of things in the regular grocery that are safe. Some things are labeled already. Wal-Mart's Great Value brand has numerous things you can eat.

2. For the love of God use Coupons on items you are allowed to eat. People can get them and print them out online even. Call some of the local stores and ask if they accept online coupons.

3. Check the ads online and in the newspaper. You would be surprised how many people do not do this.

4. Some items like rice flour and rice noodles are safe to buy at the Chinese or oriental market. The merchants are more than happy to help you if you cannot read the label.

Now, here is my list of great things to get you started:

Condiments:

Smart Balance Margarine*

Crisco Shortening

Crisco Oil

Pompeiian Olive Oil

Great Value soy sauce

Heinz Ketchup

Lea & Perrins Worchestershire Sauce (all Lea & Perrins Products are safe)

Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce

Kraft French Fat-Free Salad Dressing

Kraft Thousand Island Fat-Free Salad Dressing

Pace Picante Sauce

Ortega Salsa

All Classico Red and *White sauces

All Jif Peanut Butters including Smooth Sensations

Welch's Grape Jelly

Cool Whip*

Philadelphia Cream Cheese*

Miracle Whip

Daisy Sour Cream (fat-free, low-fat, regular)*

Snack Foods:

Utz Potato Chips (Found at Sam
