Hi everyone.

I am a mother of a newly diagnosed college student as a result of a trama/emergency surgery that brought this diease on.

We are finding it very difficult to lead a somewhat normal like. Like eating out, celebrating birthdays with cakes etc. Home cooking seems like its the same old foods over and over. We have found the rice pasta's, but it still seems like we are so limited. I have discovered gluten free.com but have only come across a waffle mix that tastes like the real thing. She has now discovered that milk products bother her as well and she has moved to soy milk. So cheeses are out along with yougurts. We are looking for receipes or a cookbook that someone can suggest that could replace some of the comfort foods she now lives without.

Also,

We are about to celebrate a big birthday and would like to celebrate with a cake. Does anyone know of a bakery in the Washington DC area that bakes Gluetn free?

I am so glad I found this website and am hopeful I/She can link up with some people with the same disorder.

:P

Hello,

I just wanted to say that many of us celiacs who are not tolerant of dairy don't tolerate soy either. Almond Breeze, Coconut milk and Rice milk have been pretty easy for me to use on cereal and in recipes. The coconut milk, undiluted, can also be used in place of butter in recipes. There is soy lecithin in the Almond Breeze. Some of us react to it, I didn't.

Hope this helps speed your daughter's recovery

You can make a very good apple sauce thats gluten free by taking 2 apples (with or without skins, I like the latter though) boiling them in a cup of water until they turn slightly brown then add a tablespoon of cinnamon. Boil the apple/cinnamon mixture stirring occasionaly until apples are mushy then smash with a potato smasher (whatever those are called :blink: ) Then add sugar to taste. PS Add water as needed. The water evaporates surprisingly fast. :PB)

My mom found this site very helpful as well when I was diagnosed. We've found that almost any meal can be modified to be gluten/dairy free (and taste GOOD! so the whole family can eat it and not even know). My advice would just think of some good meals that you guys enjoy and then take the recepies apart and change out some ingredients. For example, we still eat baked ziti, lasanga, any kind of meat not breaded etc. Head to a Whole Foods or Wegmans if you have them there, those stores will have a great selection...i even found gluten-free chicken nuggets!! and i don't think they had milk or anything in them either. Also, local small health food stores can be so helpful. They usually carry things you can't find in grocery stores. Hope some of this helps. I'm not a huge cook but I definitely got creative with meals. Good luck it will get easier :)
