Hi Nadine,

Welcome back! :-D You don't have to live with crappy food that doesn't taste good just because you're eating gluten free. I cook for people all the time and get huge compliments on my cooking, because I have learned what some of the good substitutes are for a lot of things.

As far as noodles, my suggestion is to try a few different brands. I have always had good luck with chinese rice noodles (and they're a lot cheaper than the other brands), but some say they carry a danger of cc. Also, many people who cook pasta of any variety don't know the secret to keeping noodles from sticking - it's using enough water. Always make sure you use a big enough pot so that when boiling, there is at least twice as much water as noodles in the pot. With rice noodles, drain them in the colander and immediately remove and put whatever sauce you are using on them so they don't stick together.

Corn tortillas are the best. You can buy them premade or you can make your own (with a tortilla press), and you can fill them with whatever you want.

This forum is a great resource for gluten free packaged food suggestions and gluten free recipes. You can also find many gluten free recipes on the internet.

Good luck and I hope you feel better soon,

Renee

I am on a month and getting back on the gluten-free thing even though i guess it wont help me feel better maybe a bit less tired but still

4 times more likely to die with C so yeh, when i go off the rails I google scary stuff and try to get committed again.

I find once the ball is rolling either way i am alright if i get thru a week I am good for 3-6mths if I have a bad day it turns into a bad month

You can always try eating more of the gluten free foods that are not substitutes for "normal foods". Fruits, vegetables, meats... and there are lots of grain/tuber dishes that are gluten free without resorting to Gluten free pizza.

Sometimes the devil can be in the details as well. The gluten free pizza is much better if cooked without anything under it. If you put a solid surface under it, it tends to get doughy.

Any way good luck. :)
