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.

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?

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

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.

    Celiac.com 06/15/2018 - There seems to be widespread agreement in the published medical research reports that stuttering is driven by abnormalities in the brain. Sometimes these are the result of brain injuries resulting from a stroke. Other types of brain injuries can also result in stuttering. Patients with Parkinson’s disease who were treated with stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus, an area of the brain that regulates some motor functions, experienced a return or worsening of stuttering that improved when the stimulation was turned off (1). Similarly, stroke has also been reported in association with acquired stuttering (2). While there are some reports of psychological mechanisms underlying stuttering, a majority of reports seem to favor altered brain morphology and/or function as the root of stuttering (3). Reports of structural differences between the brain hemispheres that are absent in those who do not stutter are also common (4). About 5% of children stutter, beginning sometime around age 3, during the phase of speech acquisition. However, about 75% of these cases resolve without intervention, before reaching their teens (5). Some cases of aphasia, a loss of speech production or understanding, have been reported in association with damage or changes to one or more of the language centers of the brain (6). Stuttering may sometimes arise from changes or damage to these same language centers (7). Thus, many stutterers have abnormalities in the same regions of the brain similar to those seen in aphasia.
    So how, you may ask, is all this related to gluten? As a starting point, one report from the medical literature identifies a patient who developed aphasia after admission for severe diarrhea. By the time celiac disease was diagnosed, he had completely lost his faculty of speech. However, his speech and normal bowel function gradually returned after beginning a gluten free diet (8). This finding was so controversial at the time of publication (1988) that the authors chose to remain anonymous. Nonetheless, it is a valuable clue that suggests gluten as a factor in compromised speech production. At about the same time (late 1980’s) reports of connections between untreated celiac disease and seizures/epilepsy were emerging in the medical literature (9).
    With the advent of the Internet a whole new field of anecdotal information was emerging, connecting a variety of neurological symptoms to celiac disease. While many medical practitioners and researchers were casting aspersions on these assertions, a select few chose to explore such claims using scientific research designs and methods. While connections between stuttering and gluten consumption seem to have been overlooked by the medical research community, there is a rich literature on the Internet that cries out for more structured investigation of this connection. Conversely, perhaps a publication bias of the peer review process excludes work that explores this connection.
    Whatever the reason that stuttering has not been reported in the medical literature in association with gluten ingestion, a number of personal disclosures and comments suggesting a connection between gluten and stuttering can be found on the Internet. Abid Hussain, in an article about food allergy and stuttering said: “The most common food allergy prevalent in stutterers is that of gluten which has been found to aggravate the stutter” (10). Similarly, Craig Forsythe posted an article that includes five cases of self-reporting individuals who believe that their stuttering is or was connected to gluten, one of whom also experiences stuttering from foods containing yeast (11). The same site contains one report of a stutterer who has had no relief despite following a gluten free diet for 20 years (11). Another stutterer, Jay88, reports the complete disappearance of her/his stammer on a gluten free diet (12). Doubtless there are many more such anecdotes to be found on the Internet* but we have to question them, exercising more skepticism than we might when reading similar claims in a peer reviewed scientific or medical journal.
    There are many reports in such journals connecting brain and neurological ailments with gluten, so it is not much of a stretch, on that basis alone, to suspect that stuttering may be a symptom of the gluten syndrome. Rodney Ford has even characterized celiac disease as an ailment that may begin through gluten-induced neurological damage (13) and Marios Hadjivassiliou and his group of neurologists and neurological investigators have devoted considerable time and effort to research that reveals gluten as an important factor in a majority of neurological diseases of unknown origin (14) which, as I have pointed out previously, includes most neurological ailments.
    My own experience with stuttering is limited. I stuttered as a child when I became nervous, upset, or self-conscious. Although I have been gluten free for many years, I haven’t noticed any impact on my inclination to stutter when upset. I don’t know if they are related, but I have also had challenges with speaking when distressed and I have noticed a substantial improvement in this area since removing gluten from my diet. Nonetheless, I have long wondered if there is a connection between gluten consumption and stuttering. Having done the research for this article, I would now encourage stutterers to try a gluten free diet for six months to see if it will reduce or eliminate their stutter. Meanwhile, I hope that some investigator out there will research this matter, publish her findings, and start the ball rolling toward getting some definitive answers to this question.
