HAHAHAHAA!!!!!! They're addictive, aren't they? I throw in tons of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Although 'a la Bunnie' kinda sounds like I'm being roasted on a spit.... :ph34r:

Never!

I also use a lot of cinnamon and last night the nutmeg got added in - going to increase it next time - which may be this afternoon - not addictive at all :rolleyes:

Black eye peas cooked with gluten-free smoked sausage

Collard greens and bacon

Both cooked in chicken stock

I also made pasta for a group. I cooked my rice pasta and defrosted a carrot sauce. Everyone else had regular pasta and tomato sauce. Oh, and I made meatballs for everyone.

My apple dessert of late is to combine it with dates and nuts. It tastes like a taffy apple!

Today I will freeze some of the above meals and I'm wondering what to cook next?

Making unstuffed egg rolls today. Too lazy to get out the rice paper wrappers and fry.

Brown ground chicken and break up as it cooks. Add a package of cole slaw cabbage and wilt. Spinkle with salt and generous amount of garlic powder. Serve with sauce drizzled over. Sauce is a bit of pineapple juice mixed with vinegar, cane sugar, and water. Thickened with a bit of GMO free corn starch.

Yesterday I made pizza! The almond-coconut-egg crust covered with a garlic sauce and topped with artichokes and mushrooms was delicious! I did include a bit of grated mozzarella cheese, as I can have a bit of dairy now and again without the rash appearing. I just ate some again for breakfast. YUM!

The kids ate regular cheese pizza with tomato sauce. It looked delicious.

Tonight I'll be cooking chicken soup with some pastina for the kids.

Great thread, I will have to come back and contribute! for tonight I am off to an event/dinner which I am being accommodated at but I made these brownies which are waiting for me when I get home since I have to skip the ones provided. http://freeeatsfood.com/2012/01/11/brownies/ I use my own special flour blend free of potato and tapioca starch because of other allergies.

Oh I almost forgot to post about another discovery. It's so easy and tasty! Pork tenderloin cubed in the crock pot with apples, oranges, garlic, some coconut flakes, raisins, and a scant half cup of coconut milk. Oh, and curry, lots of curry. It was soooooooo good! It tasted sweet to me, something I've been craving, but my DH did not think it was sweet. The original recipe called for chicken bouillon for flavor and then some kind of thickener to make a gravy. I just omitted both. Gluten and corn starch problem solved, haha!

Also, I found a garlic sauce, Lebanese style, that is delicious! We ate it with the chicken from the chicken soup tonight. A head of garlic, chopped, some salt, 1/2 cup lemon juice, and 1-1/2 cups of oil mixed with the immersion blender. It fluffs up like mayonnaise but is better for hot foods. And it's another sauce, another flavor profile to add to the parade of veggies with meat.

Sorry my contributions are not always grain-free since I have nut and seed allergy and I need the few grains I have left for dietary balance but I have many grain allergies as well. Hope that it's ok to share things that are not grain-free, all my food is free of the others.

Today I had Whole Foods meat case bulk sausage as patties for my Breakfast, with part of a satumaimo-Japanese purple skinned-yellow fleshed sweet potato with a little ghee on it.

Here is a "sauce" recipe I use on fish or chicken.

Salsa Verde(not my choice of names)

1/2 c. finely chopped parsley

1/2 c. olive oil

3 Tb. capers, drained and chpped

1 Tb. lemon juice

1 tsp. fresh oregano or 1/3 dried

1 glove garlic, minced

salt to taste

Mix. Will keep 3 days in the fredge, press plastic wrap to cover the surface.

What do you all have for breakfast? as your carb/starch I am getting tired of pumpkin, cranberries and apples in things. I have a few muffin recipes that are corn, potato and tapioca-free, by alteration, originally or use very little starch compared to most. I could share if anyone wanted. I often have mufffins, but as I said, tired of the same old recipes. I also have steel cut oatmeal or leftover squash or sweet potato, occasionally a bowl of rice with some kale sprinkled on top. I don't eat eggs unless thay are an ingredient in baked goods so that makes breakfast a bit more challenging.

I do eat eggs with fresh vegies and leftover meat most mornings - the other mornings are paleo pumpkin or apple muffins/breads made with coconut flour.

In a hurry I eat apple slices with almond butter.

When I was not yet grain free I frequently ate rice or quinoa in the morning with a bit of cinnamon and apples.

I've also heard a lot of people that can tolerate oats make oatmeal cookies with dates, nuts or raisins to keep in the freezer for quick breakfast/snack food.

Perhaps search paleo pancakes to find some recipes that should fit your restrictions.

Hi Dave-

How did your fermenting go? I tried gaps diet awhile back and couldn't tolerate the fermented vegies required. Wondering if you were able to eat them.

Also wanted to add my Chocolate Mousse Like Substance to this thread - I've been fiddling with it for at least a month - last night was the best - yummy:

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1/3 cup cocoa

1/3 cup almond butter

1/3 cup agave

1/2 - 1 cup almond milk - still playing with this a bit

1 tsp vanilla

Blend well in blender - have not had the same results using a wisk or mixer.

Fill custard cups - refrigerate a few hours till set.

If you can't tolerate almond milk - coconut milk works too.

For these recipes I make simple almond milk with just almonds and water in blender - without the straining step used when you drink almond milk.

I tried keifer with probotics twice an got sick, i then tried there coconut milk with probotics an got sick again. I"m a little hard headed, but i kept reading that i needed them!!! I"m kind of scared to try the ferminited veggies, but i will. Still have not made any or decided which kind of veggies i want to use. I do not care much for cabbage so thinking of trying something differant.

Today i"m having collard greens, sweet potatoes, an fresh pork neckbones cooked in the pressure cooker.

I"ve only been 4 weeks corn free an the differance in my life is unbelivable, I"m trying to reintroduce some foods back into my diet. So far so good. I"m just taking it slow an enjoying not being so sick.

Nc Dave, fermented cabbage, or Kim Chee, tastes differently than straight up cabbage, IMHO. Guess you could also try sauerkraut? I haven't found any yet that is gluten, etc., free, but I also haven't looked very hard. Bigos stew, or polish hunters stew, is cooked with sauerkraut and sausage, along with mushrooms and some other things. These might be options for you?

For Thanksgiving I made two paleo pumpkin pies. One with a walnut crust, one with mixed nuts. Both were good and I was happy to be able to eat dessert! The custard was made with fresh roast pumpkin, coconut milk, and honey.

For breakfast lately, I've been eating lots of vegetables, sometimes with an egg, sometimes with bacon, or other meat, always Carmelized a bit.

Tonight for dinner we had a pork stew cooked in the crock pot, made with apples, oranges, garlic, onion, curry, raisins, and cubed pork tenderloin. I served it atop quinoa and sautéed asparagus for a side. I LOVE this stew! It is both sweet and savory, and really tasty on a cool weather day.

I haven't even read any of these posts yet but I just want to say what I good idea this was to make this post! Thank you :)

Hi all,

It seems that once going gluten-free many of us find other problems arise. The above list (gluten-free, dairy, soy, corn, and nightshade free) seems to be a common one, along with totally grain free. Can we start a thread of recipes and meal suggestions that follow these restrictions?

Thanks for the bump Skittles!

I've been posting in the "what's for dinner"

Can you share your recipe for your sweet and sour pork dish?

GottaSki, thanks for the sauce rec! Good idea I'm going to have to do that.

How did the pie work out?

I still have to make a practice paleo pie soon in preparation for our Thanksgiving dinner. I made a Caramel Pecan Bar with basically pecans and dates. There were a few tablespoons of coconut milk, and that seemed ok for me so I bought more. Lots of recipes are calling for coconut milk in place of dairy. Homemade cashew milk can be too nutty for the other flavors sometimes.

Yesterday I made a crock pot sweet/sour pork dish. It was a made up recipe, based on BBQ but without any tomatoes. I did, however, use chili powder spices. That may have hit my stomach in a bad way? I'll have to see what happens tomorrow.

Confession: oh, I've been a bad girl. All that Halloween candy in front of me, tempting me, how much can a girl take? Then a new candy showed up, attractively packaged, of a snickers bar with almonds instead of peanuts. It said gluten free. But it did have soy, corn, and probably dairy, basically almost everything on my list to avoid. I savored that candy in 3 tiny bites! And woke up hurting a little. Tonight, I think I'll just have wine, LOL!

Oh well it didn't turn out so well. I did use chili powder and hoped that the nightshade connection wouldn't be so strong. But it upset my stomach. I don't think I have it written down anywhere now. It wasn't so great. I'll have to try again with some cider vinegar and honey. Sorry to disappoint.

But thanks for joining us here! We can always use new food ideas!

Yesterday I made a bread recipe from everyday paleo. It's basically almond butter n eggs. It's pretty good. It's just too easy to eat too many nuts with these paleo recipes.

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to have found this thread! I had no idea this combination of allergies was common - let's unite!

I'm also a chef so this makes things both easier and harder. I cook all day so I'm not always thrilled to have to cook my own food, however it helps because I can improvise meals to taste great with all my experience. I'll surely be posting what I come up with.

I'm going to try and make a gluten free dairy free mac and cheese. Been craving comfort food!

Does anyone know if sorghum flour is just as bad as say buckwheat/corn? I've been straying from my diet so I'm not sure if it's because I ate a bunch of pizza made of sorghum/tapioca or not.. hmm

Breakfast: almond yoghurt smoothie with blueberries and mango

Lunch: roasted parsnips and squash with Serbian chevaps with a peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie (sorghum)

Dinner: Miso, Chicken and Kale soup with Vermicelli

Have you tried frying rice wraps? I've been wanting to try that but I'm not sure how that would turn out... What I also see in my local Chinatown stores are beancurd sheets.. now I'm supposed to avoid legumes and beans as well but I'm just wondering if I could use rice paper instead!

    Celiac.com 07/13/2018 - I went to a friend’s home for dinner.  A few days before, she called and asked me what I could eat.  I asked her what she was planning to make, and she said she was grilling meats with side dishes.  I said, “Great.  Please just grill a piece of chicken for me with salt and pepper, and I’ll be happy to bring a side.” She said, “No need to bring a side.  I’ve got this.” When I arrived, she greeted me and said, “I spent all day cooking tonight’s dinner so you can eat it. Hey would you just check this salad dressing to see if it is OK for you?” I looked at the ingredients and it contained gluten and dairy, both of which I cannot eat.  Then I glanced around the kitchen and saw evidence of wheat cross-contamination, including buns being toasted on the grill, and gluten-containing barbeque sauce spilling on the grill where my “clean” chicken was cooking. She had other guests to tend to, and I couldn’t offer instruction or read the ingredients of everything she used in the meal. 
    At social gatherings, I’ve been challenged too by those who ask if I am really “allergic,” or just eating gluten free as a “fad.” I’ve been told many times by hosts and hostesses that, “a little won’t hurt you,” or “everything in moderation,” or “if it is made with loving hands, it is good for you to eat.”  Of course, all of this is bunk for those with food allergies or celiac disease.  A little bit may kill us, and whether made with loving hands or not, it will certainly make us sick. 
    Those of us with food allergies and/or celiac disease walk a tightrope with friends and relatives. The old rules of etiquette just don’t work anymore.  We don’t want to insult anybody, we don’t want to be isolated, and we also don’t want to risk our health by eating foods that may contain ingredients we cannot tolerate.  So what do we do? 
    Etiquette books advise us to eat what is put in front of us when we are guests in someone’s home. They caution us at all costs not to insult our hostess. Rather, we are instructed to compliment the hostess on her good cooking, flavor combinations, and food choices.  But when foods are prepared in a cross-contaminated environment with ingredients we are allergic to, we cannot follow the old social constructs that do not serve us.  We need to work together to rewrite the rules, so that we can be included in social gatherings without fear of cross-contamination, and without offending anyone.
    Let’s figure out how to surmount these social situations together.  
    Each edition of this column will present a scenario, and together, we’ll determine appropriate, polite, and most importantly, safe ways to navigate this tricky gluten-free/food allergies lifestyle in a graceful way.  If someone disagrees with our new behavior patterns, we can refer them to this column and say, “Here are the new rules for those of us with food allergies or celiac disease.”  When we are guests in someone’s home, we can give them links to this column so they understand the plight we are faced with, bite after bite. Perhaps this will help those of us living with us to understand, be more compassionate, and accepting of our adaptations to keep ourselves safe. 
    This column will present a scenario such as the one above, and ask that you comment on how you would navigate it. Let’s talk about it. Let’s share ideas.  Using the example above, here’s the scenario for this issue:
    What would you do?
    Your kind-hearted friend invites you to dinner and insists on cooking for you.  You arrive and the first thing she says is, “I’ve spent all day making this for you. Oh, I bought this salad dressing for you, but you might want to read the ingredients first.”  You do, and it contains malt vinegar.  You look around the kitchen and notice evidence of cross-contamination in the rest of the meal.  What do you do? 
    Please comment below and feel free to share the tricky scenarios that you’ve encountered too.  Let’s discuss how to surmount these social situations.  What would you do?

    Celiac.com 07/12/2018 - Previous research has shown that the oral administration of Bifidobacterium infantis Natren Life Start super strain (NLS-SS) reduces of gastro-intestinal symptoms in untreated celiac disease patients. The reduction of symptoms was not connected with changes in intestinal permeability or serum levels of cytokines, chemokines, or growth factors. Therefore, researchers suspected that the reduction of symptoms might be related to the modulation of innate immunity.
    To test that hypothesis, a team of researchers set out to assess the potential mechanisms of a probiotic B.infantis Natren Life Start super strain on the mucosal expression of innate immune markers in adult patients with active untreated celiac disease compared with those treated with B. infantis 6 weeks and after 1 year of gluten-free diet.
    The research team included Maria I. Pinto-Sanchez, MD, Edgardo C. Smecuol, MD, Maria P. Temprano,RD, Emilia Sugai, BSBC, Andrea Gonzalez, RD, PhD, Maria L. Moreno,MD, Xianxi Huang, MD, PhD, Premysl Bercik, MD, Ana Cabanne, MD, Horacio Vazquez, MD, Sonia Niveloni, MD, Roberto Mazure, MD, Eduardo Mauriño, MD, Elena F. Verdú, MD, PhD, and Julio C. Bai, MD. They are affiliated with the Medicine Department, Farcombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada; the Small Intestinal Section, Department of Medicine and the Department of Alimentation at Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo, Gastroenterology Hospital and Research Institute at the Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    The team determined the numbers of macrophages and Paneth cells, along with the expression of a-defensin-5 expression via immunohistochemistry in duodenal biopsies.
    Their results showed that a gluten-free diet lowers duodenal macrophage counts in celiac disease patients more effectively than B. infantis, while B. infantis lowers Paneth cell counts and reduces expression of a-defensin-5.
    This study documents the differential innate immune effects of treatment with B. infantis compared with 1 year of gluten-free diet. The team calls for further study to better understand the synergistic effects of gluten-free diet and B. infantis supplementation in celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 07/11/2018 - For people with celiac disease, finding decent gluten-free bread is like searching gold. Many have given up on bread entirely and others begrudgingly relate themselves to the ignominious frozen aisle at their supermarket and content themselves with one of the many dry, shriveled, flavorless loaves that proudly tout the gluten-free label. 
    For these people, the idea of freshly baked bread is a distant, if comforting, memory. The idea of going to Paris and marching into a boulangerie and walking out with a warm, tasty, gluten-free baguette that was freshly baked on the premises that morning, is like a dream. Now, in some Parisian bakeries, that dream is becoming a reality. And the tear of joy from the thankful gluten-free masses are sure to follow.
    These days, a single sign on the awning speaks to hungry customers who peruse the tarts and chou buns, and the loaves that fill the cooling on racks behind a glass pane at Chambelland boulangerie and café in Paris’ 11th arrondissement. The sign lettered in French translates: “artisan baker; flour producer; naturally gluten free.” That’s right. Naturally gluten-free. At a bakery. In Paris. 
    Only the flat, focaccia-style loaves, and the absence of baguettes, tells customers that this bakery is something different. Chambelland opened its doors in 2014 and continues to do a brisk business in delicious, freshly baked gluten-free breads and other goods.
    The boulangerie is the work of Narhaniel Doboin and his business partner, Thomas Teffri-Chambelland. They use flour made of grains including rice, buckwheat and sorghum to make delicious gluten-free baked goods. Doboin says that customers queued in the rain on the first day, hardly believing their eyes, some began to cry. 
    For gluten-free Parisians, there was a time before Chambelland, and the time after. If you find yourself in Paris, be sure to search them out for what is sure to be a gluten-free delight.
    Or maybe book your ticket now.

    Celiac.com 07/10/2018 - As part of its 50th Anniversary activities, Celiac UK has launched a research fund and accompanying fundraising appeal to support new research and development. The fund has already received an injection of £500k from Innovate UK, in addition to £250k from the charity. 
    Together, Coeliac UK and Innovate UK have opened applications for grants from the £750,000. Researchers and businesses can apply for a grants ranging from £50k to £250k for healthcare diagnostics, digital self-care tools and better gluten free food production. 
    Food businesses can receive grants by developing more nutritious and affordable gluten free food, by using new ingredients, improving nutritional value, flavor and/or texture, and creating better methods of preservation.
    The three main goals of the program are: To improve celiac disease diagnostics; to improve the quality of gluten-free foods, and to promote digitally supported self-care for people with celiac disease. 
    The matching industry funds will bring spending for new research on the growing global gluten-free foods market to nearly £1m.
    Ultimately, Coeliac UK is looking to raise £5 million to improve understanding and treatment of celiac disease and gluten related autoimmune conditions. 
    Sarah Sleet, Chief Executive of Coeliac UK said: “With the global diagnosis for coeliac disease increasing year on year, this is a chance for UK business and researchers to get ahead and develop competitive advantages in innovation which will be of benefit to a badly underserved patient group.

    • Hi, I was diagnosed with celiacs after extreme stomach pain, irregular bowel movements and diarrhea. The extreme stomach pain was the main reason I really needed to find out what this was, and finally I had a doctor let me know i probably had Celiacs after a blood test. An endoscopy came back positive for celiacs as well. The extreme burning in my stomach went away within a week, however the pain persisted. Whenever I ate, it became really bad, even though i was extremely careful and made everything from scratch. I even are only fruit for a whole week to make sure I wasn't screwing up. Now its been over a year, and I still have the stomach pain come back after eating almost anything other than juicy fruit like watermelon/melons/grapes.  I got tested for H pylori a year ago, came back negative. Got tested for blood in stool: negative. Went to doctors, they say they have no clue what it is.  I have tested with different things. If I eat very fatty food it hurts a lot more than other food. If I have alcohol, the pain turns into a very dull ache the next day after waking up, and it goes away the day after completely without fail.  If I fast for a day, the pain does not exist. It used to hurt, but in the last few months not anymore. If I dont eat after 6, the pain is completely gone until I eat the next day, and it can be anything, even a no fat food.  If I eat something at it starts hurting more, drinking a lot of water makes it usually go away almost completely. But that uncomfortable feeling is still there, just the major pain goes away. Im going crazy here trying to figure this out. Im 22 years old, I want to enjoy my life. It also seems to go away with exercise.    Any help would be great, thank you!
    • Found this study that looked at Sjogren's syndrome and food sensitivities. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4676776/#!po=28.2609
    • I just checked and it seems that they don't distribute in the US, which is unfortunate (though predictable given the political/economic context of dairy). If you ever come to Canada, you'll have good luck in almost any big box grocery store or convenience store - it's a pretty basic/cheap brand of ice cream. Breyer's has a lot of gluten-free products (in Canada at least). You might try those? I'd be more inclined to trust a larger company with stuff like this - they have the volume to run dedicated gluten-free ice cream/dessert products.
    • It seems as though the more I research, and dedicate myself to becoming gluten free(only 6-8 weeks now), the worse my dh is getting! I know I am probably missing some things, but my diet compared to several weeks ago, is hugely improved! I have learned that humility, and always remaining teachable will be one of my best allies in this battle. Just this morning, after making a dreaded assumtion that what I heard earlier about coffee, was not all inclusive, and that I might very well been poisening myself, with about 40 - 60 ounces of instant coffee every morning! Plus relying on a cheap variety(great value) of hazelnut creamer( just because it said gluten free, not certified! ) So off to the store for a new coffee maker, ground Folgers, and...we'll see! I am sorry to be so lengthy, but if I can save anyone, or only one person from dh of this magnitude, I will be at least a happier camper!  As I stated earlier, it seems my outbreaks have only been getting worse. I (so far) have only experienced dh, but don't know how much more I can tolerate, and find it impossible to believe that I am using "only" and "dermatitis herpediformus" in the same sentence!!! I still have two months to go in a new job, until my insurance kicks in, and in the meantime will have to see a dermatologist, instead of a gastro-intestinal dr. Believe me, I can ill afford to not tell this dr. that I had a preliminary diagnosis via, skin biopsy, that indicated celiac. This is hideous. Please, any ideas???????? Thank you for the posts I've read so far, and hopefully, if anyone is doing the instant coffee thing.... it might be wise to reconsider!   
    • similar issue with stomach ache.  I usually do not eat out much and can have a little sensitivity towards greasy food.  But an hour after eating Lays Kettle Cooked Jalapeno chips about 1/2 bag of the 8oz., I had the worst stomach ache I have ever had in my life.  Extremely painful.  I never get stomach aches.  When food doesn't agree, maybe diarrhea, but not stomach ache.  I am not lactose in tolerate or sensitive to gluten. After the stomach ache started I didn't need to urgently poop.  throwing up seemed like a possibly but never came out naturally and I wasn't about to force it.  There is something in those chips that disrupted my stomach and many other people after doing research.  Possibly inflammation in one of our organs due to one of the ingredients.  It has been 39 hours and my stomach still has a little pain.  I have already reached out to Lays today , probably will not get far with them, but maybe gain more knowledge
