International Foods

I was just informed today that my step son is having an international foods taste testing day at his school in a few weeks, and I desperately need recipes. I can make some sort of Mexican dish, I have many of those, and I can do shepherd's pie for German, but I would like to have some other ideas for international foods day. I am telling you, his school has completely stressed me out with all of the food days they have! They have at least one food day a week and so far he hasn't been able to eat any of the food they have so I've had to come up with something for him. In October he had apple WEEK, and in November he had pumpkin WEEK, so for both weeks I made something for every day. Good thing I enjoy cooking!

Anyway, please help with any international recipes you might have on hand!!!

I am new to this gluten-free thing, but from what I understand from gluten-free friends, there are a lot of Indian and Thai dishes that can be made gluten-free and dairy-free. You might check on the food network or epicurious web sites..some of them let you do more advanced searches where you can opt out of allergy foods.

Hi,

This recipe was just posted yesterday or the day before on this forum. My German M-I-L and recently my sister-in-law has made these for me every year. They are GREAT. You don't find them here, just in Germany. And they are more appealing to kids than Shepherd's pie (IMHO!! :) )

Here's the link:

Sarad, you are an AWESOME mom/stepmom!!!

Does German Chocolate Cake count? :P Just kidding.

How about a Chinese lo mein? Check out these recipes, and just use gluten-free soy sauce and Tinkyada spaghetti noodles...

Lo mein is great to personalize-- you can add his favorite ingredients.

Edit-- My link is NOT working by clicking. :angry: If you just copy and paste the url, though, it does work!!

My wife usually does this once a month where she teaches here in Hawaii. No celiacs in the class but a number of children with peanut and lactose problems. She often makes onigiri, Japanese rice balls. After you make rice, just add some vinegar and sugar to the rice, mix it well and form small triangles or small balls of the flavored rice. She usually brings a jar of sesame seeds and crumbled sea weed for the adventurous ones. There are many more detailed sushi rice recipes online you can use but this usually works.

We sometimes make a Philippine dessert called halohalo which you can google for a number of recipes that you dont have to follow.

Basically its sweetened beans and fruit on top of crushed ice or ice cream.

There's always Hawaiian poi too!

good luck!

... and yet we wonder why the West has a growing obesity problem...

However, I think if you want recipes then you have to choose.... almost anything can be done if you substitute ... but its somewhat missing the point?

As already mentioned Indian and SE Asian food is probably the easiest for naturally gluten-free along with Mexican you're already doing however at some point you might perhaps need to educate the school.

You could perhaps stress just how much he cannot eat and why ... WHILST stressing he isn't some kind of freak and that 1:200 people have this condition.... In other words EVERYONE in his class will at some point meet another celiac ... some might even be undiagnosed ... and if they already know about it from school the next person they meet with celiac disease will at least meet someone who learned about it at school.

Thank you!!! I have been saying this for months and the thing is, it's a private school so from what I've been told they don't really have to make an attempt to educate about this. I have been told, however, that if he were going to public school things would be much different.....(yeah, like they wouldn't be eating pancakes with syrup at 2:00 in the afternoon!) Every 'food day' they've had involves some sort of sweet. Yesterday was ice cream sundae's, next week is popcorn balls and popsicles. Unfortunately we have no say in where he goes to school at this point so we just have to deal with it and make sure he's not left out.

You guys are all so awesome, I appreciate these ideas more than you know! I am SO glad I found this site!

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
