Help! I Need A No Salt, High Iron, Gluten Free Recipe
0

10 posts in this topic

I'm cooking for a group of 11.  4 are gluten-free and one of the gluten-free is also on a no salt and high iron diet.  I am just not creative enough to come up with anything.  I'm thinking about quinoa and then something with shrimp?  Any help is appreciated!

I'd grill or roast meat - leave the no salt person's piece without salt and season the rest. Meat is high in iron, right?

I'd think shrimp would run the risk of high salt-ask the person if its ok for them.

Wilted spinach with garlic and onions?

I avoided seafood like the plague while I was low iodine. I imagine that salt would also be a problem with seafood.

 

When I start to get anemic I get really serious cravings, all I want to eat is red meat and spinach. I can't eat spinach, but it has insane amounts of iron. Not sure what age group you are cooking for, or if they would like it but there are lots of great ways to have spinach. I always just liked it either fried with garlic and bacon or as a salad with fruit and a vinaigrette.

 

Quinoa does have a fair amount of iron in it, but not everyone is comfortable eating it and not everyone likes it. I guess the same could be said of spinach in terms of liking it.

 

I guess my best recommendation would be to talk to the person with the most restrictive diet for ideas about what a normal meal is like for them. That can help give you ideas about what you can do and plan from there. Also, I'm not sure if you're whole house is gluten free or not, but remember that regardless of the answer to that question, it is normal and okay for people who are gluten free to deny food in other people's houses. All you can do is accept it and let them be hungry or eat what they brought.

Here's the scoop, it's at my house and we eat gluten-free due to 2 of my kids.  So, my rules ;)  My mother is the one with the most restrictions but this is very new to her so I'm trying to help her out.  The group will include 1/2 children and 1/2 adults and I know that one of the adults is picky but he'll drink a lot of beer to cope, so who cares what he thinks (not that drinking beer is bad but it gets annoying).  My kids love quinoa and they are the majority when it comes to children.  

I'm thinking about a spinach strawberry salad-that's delicious.  The seafood is naturally higher in sodium but very high in iron.  I think (have to double check) that we're after no added salt.

I can be a real B about foods because we get so much negativity about the gluten-free diet.  You know, restaurants, relatives who think it's BS, etc.  So, I'm cooking the same foods for everyone and if they don't like it they will survive!  Now, that being said, whenever I feed a group a gluten-free meal they are surprised that they like it-I think we've all experienced that!

I have a bunch of porterhouse steaks but hate to waste them on a crowd plus it'll be too cold to grill.

JNBunnie, what's the wilted spinach like?  I've only ever had it cooked with butter or creamed.

Cooked chicken livers with onions over brown rice. Pour hot barbecue sauce over all. Add spinach salad as a side.

Ah, didn't realize it was family to cook for. I know that I, and a lot of others, just don't eat at other people's houses, no matter what they say about how awesome they are at gluten free. It isn't an insult, just paranoia and self preservation. :) That's cool though that you're helping her navigate this new world.

 

I don't believe in such a thing as too cold to grill. Then again I wouldn't waste good steaks on company, family or not. :P

 

Spinach strawberry salad sounds so good. I can't wait to give spinach another try this summer! It must be really cool having not picky kids.

Um, I used to do it with a bit of olive oil and diced garlic. My tummy decided it doesn't like

spinach anymore :( . No reason not to do it in butter! Or creamed or however you and

yours enjoy it. If you wanted to do a beef dish, perhaps lasagna or spaghetti squash?

My mom has to be extra low sodium sometimes. Not what you are thinking of serving but the " broth" they inject chickens with is salt water. I get " natural" chicken but check the sodium. Chicken should have some - about 40 mg . You'll see some with 130. Leaving no room for anything else on the chicken.

Watch the bottled sauces - like BBQ, too. It's amazing the differences in sodium.

Chicken is a good idea-we raise our own and I canned a bunch of tomato sauce last year so no salt!  I'll have to check the freezer!!!

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
