  1. Thank you soo much for the veggie ideas! they sound great! I will try them this weekend.
  2. Actually, its 2.5 pounds of veggies a day. Its no joke, so any good veggie recipes would be most appreciated!
  3. I get to add specific starches and carb/grains back to brkfst and lunch. A half cup generally. As long as it is not flour its ok but most people add whole wheat products and sprouted breads. I'll try the veggies in the rice thing. That sounds interesting, along with the Mex. Quinoa! I need some flavor and variaty. I pretty much have to eat 2.5# of veggies a day so getting a bit creative would be nice. Thanks for the feedback!
  4. This is good too. Even though my sister has dealt with celiac disease for at least a year now she is tired of giving my mom and I tips. So I really appreciate the comments.
  5. OK gtcha now. Im slow sometimes. This is perfect! Lots of choices for breakfast. Buckwheat, rice, this is a good start. I'll see if whole Foods carries these. Yeah!
  6. Yeah! Brown rice seems to be the way to go, as long as it is not in flour form.
  7. Brown rice, Quinoa, and and Irish oatmeal are the things i can eat that are gluten free, but thats kinda it. Thank you for the support. Most of the gluten free products have some sort of sugar or flour in them so they're out. Thats why I keep looking for alternatives. Guess I'm just obsessing on this. I eat alot of veggies and I think thats going to have to do. Thank you so much for your input. A nutritionist is not financially possible so I learn what I can from my mom and sister, they both have nutritionists. Again thank you so much!
  8. Its a sister program to OA for sure. The strictness of the meal plans is there to eliminate the worry and obsession of food. Its really been a ton of food, just no snacks. (veggies can be weighed into 8 oz servings) I've lost 20 lb.s in this first month. I feel soooo much better. Really I'm irritated because I can't eat certain things because of the program AND several things because of celiac disease. I need to get creative. Tomorrow is the first day I add grains and some starches back into my diet. Right now I have as options brown rice, Queanwa(sp), and Irish outmeal. My Sponsor has no knowledge of Celiac disease so she doesn't really know how to help. Dido for her sponsor. Looking for recipe ideas, how to stay on my meal plan one day at a time, and just someone that understands. This is the first time I've really been confident about a food program, and i would like to keep it up.
  9. That is one of the main points. Flour and sugar are the biggest offenders. In a couple of days I get to add grains back, just not the way everyone else in the program does. They get to eat ezekiel bread and stuff. On the other hand my mom and sister are celiac and can have flour and sweets. It's sort of a double edged sword right now. I'm looking for someone that gets that, and might have some feedback.
  10. A month ago I started Compulsive Eaters Anonymous. A week later I found out I was full blown Celiac due to my mom's test results. The problem is I am about to add grains back into my diet and the CEA meal plan and celiac disease Sort of cross out items both ways, making my food choices even slimmer. I there anyone that is going through this too, or has already? I would love some feedback, experience, strength and hope.
