What Would You Eat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

What foods do you miss most? If you could have a 'free' day or your Dr. made you eat gluten (like me) what would you choose?

I can't decide. I'm also not happy about this.

I would have tons of pizza. I haven't made any gluten free pizza yet since I can't have cheese either. Pizza without cheese just wouldn't do it for me.

After pigging out on pizza, I'd hit chocolate chip cookies. Haven't tried the gluten free cookies either because of other food sensitivities.

One night before I went to sleep I pictured all the foods I would like to eat. Haven't started dreaming of them yet.

Interesting to think about this now after being gluten-free for four and a half years. In that time, I've learned how to make just about anything I want gluten-free and delicious.

Two exceptions are big southern style biscuits and Krispy Creme donuts. :)

Although nothing, no one, no way I would ever knowingly touch it again...

Baklava or anything made with phyllo dough (anyone know of any gluten-free?)

Those toaster strudel thingies or the raspberry flaky turnovers

Cresent biscuits

Real crusty warm Italian or Sourdough bread

Pizza Hut Pizza

Bob's Sub from Slippery Rock, PA

Garlic bread and lasagna

I'm not crying too loudly, though because my husband is making me steak on the grill with a grilled yam for dinner :-D

You couldn't pay me to eat gluten(or carbs)again but I'll play along(since I miss carbs and cheese and fruit...)

Big Mac or Whopper(I do have recipe for Big Mac Sauce(copycat) posted on this forum)

Pizza

european style cakes with layers of fruit, mousse, whipped cream, sponge cake etc.(I guess the sponge is the gluteny part and if one took the time these types of cakes could be made gluten-free and just as good but I would love to just walk into such a cake shop again and choose a selection of several made by a pasty chef)

kiddo would say a good sourdough bread

Others are right, MANY things can be made just as good gluten-free.

Right now, at this very moment, I have to say chicken nuggets. I have only been gluten free for 3 weeks and this was the first time I really struggled with wanting something. I was very sick with a nasty stomach thing yesterday and I always have chicken nuggets when my stomach is working it's way back to ok after a stomach bug. I missed them today.

Allergy Free makes some that taste like the real deal in our(kiddo and my) humble opinions.

It hasn't been that long for me...and since I can still have most of my favorite foods (I'm a really simple eater), I can't say there is too much. I hate feeling sick, so things that make me sick no longer have the same appeal. I think the only things I'll miss as time goes on are golden oreos (really, just the oreo middle!) and fried rice. Once I figure out how to make those two things, I'll be in gluten-free heaven.

I would think a vanilla wafer with stuffing would be similar. I have only made gluten-free/vegan vanilla wafers...but the stuffing is easy (I have a recipe). Fried rice is easy...it all depends on what you want in it. Fast version: make extra rice the day before and extra breakfast food like bacon and scrambled eggs. Then stir fry carrots, celery (one dd doesn't like it so I just use 1 rib), green onions, what ever you like, in a little oil. Add the meats, add the rice and soy sauce (we use Bragg's liquid aminos). Then a scoop of frozen peas (or peas and carrots). Add a little water if needed. Be sure to use cold, cooked rice. Chopped water chestnuts are good too. My dd likes it with chicken or ham but her fave is bbq pork cut into little pieces (not sure if its gluten-free, haven't bought it since she's gluten-free).

I found this krispy recipe:

Hope they are good!

A flaky croissant, a real crusty sourdough bread, something savoury made from phyllo pastry, and a pepperoni, mushroom and olive pizza.

Dairy and red meats are off limits still, So far I've had a Chick-fil-A sandwich, a slice of cinnamon raisin toast, and today Popeye's chicken, a biscuit & 3 onion rings. None of it was as good as I remembered, certainly not worth the pain and stomach turmoil they've caused. But that biscuit was damn good. I still can't decide what to eat tomorrow, but Saturday I'm making Barbeque Shrimp and dunking hot French bread in the sauce. And I am drinking a Guinness!

I'm going with phyllo dough. Baklava and spanikopita. Most anything else I can make a suitable substitute. Though a biscuit from Cracker Barrel would be awfully good too!

I was thinking of exactly those things. Tomorrow's breakfast will be Cracker Barrel's biscuits w/coffee and sourdough wheat grilled toast. Or possibly French toast. Does Cracker Barrel make that?

Today I've had a bite each of an almond croissant, a chocolate eclair and an apple turnover (hubby & daughter helped w/the rest) I Loved the texture of the turnover, nothing Gluten-free makes those puffy, flaky layers. The other two were not good at all.

I thought that Kinnikinnick or Mi-Del? one of the other companies anyway, made round vanilla sandwich cookies. Haven't had them but I've seen them on the shelves.

I'd have a Cinnabon (sp?) cinnamon roll w/ extra frosting. I'd also go for an old fashioned donut, Frosted Flakes, and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on white bread. And last but not least Cookie Dough Ice cream (maybe with a few other off limit flavors thrown in, like cookies and cream).

I've seen them on shelves too and I remember someone telling me they were not too bad either. Though I've never had them myself.

The only thing I haven't made and am leary to try, though I will: a croissant. Everything else I make deliciously gluten-free.

Oh, and I'd wash it down with either a Sam Adam's summer ale or a Magic Hat #9. I miss beer selections :(

I make gluten-free fried rice all the time. :) All you need to do is use wheat-free soy sauce.

As far as what I would eat if there were a magic day when I'd have no reaction -- I'm pretty sure it would be fresh sourdough bread. Yum!
