Breakfast Food/breads Question

I'm awaiting biopsy but am testing gluten free foods.  I tried Vans frozen waffles and blehhh did not like, bought some nature's path waffles and those were much better to me, alot closer to eggos.  Any other brands out there?  I did not see any others in Whole Foods or Trader Joe's.  I also cannot find gluten free pancakes at either store at all though I do know they exist as I have seen the Van's ones advertised online though both stores only have the gluten ones.  I asked the girl next to me who was grabbing some of the Van's gluten free waffles and she said generally if you find the pancakes take a photo because you don't see them too often.  As far as bread goes I saw Whole Foods keeps em all frozen yet Trader Joe's does not for some reason?  I'm assuming its probably not a good idea to buy the non frozen bread as far as it lasting long?

Unless you live in the city where the gluten-free bread is made, the bread is frozen to ship. Some stores thaw it out and some leave it frozen. My WF thaws a few at a time. I usually ask for one from the freezer in back. If its thawed, I just put all or most of it in my freezer.

Many people like the Pamela's pancake and baking mix. You could make a bunch and freeze some. Some people even use them to make Pb & j sandwiches.

Schar bread is not frozen. We really like the baguette. You cook it about five minutes.

Unless you are in need of a door stop or sumphin'. :wacko:

 

Oh and I must add.... I love Van's Waffles and eat them every morning toasted with Peanut Butter (melted on the hot waffle) and Orange Marmalade.  WELL, almost every morning.  I never ate EGGO's, my kids did (before my dx) The cool thing on this diet, is you discover new priorities. ;)

If you find Krusteaz waffles they're pretty good. I wouldn't buy frozen pancakes since they're so easy to make. Either from scratch or the mixes are generally pretty decent too. I can't recommend Bisquick for breakfast foods, but it is awesome for impossible pies. Other than that though I haven't run into a pancake/waffle mix I haven't liked. By far though, my favorite everything in a box is Hodgson Mill.

 

You'll find that everyone likes a different everything best. Just the same as the gluten world. You'll just have to keep trying them all and decide for yourself. You'll also quickly realize that most of the prepackaged stuff is expensive, and in comparison to what you can make yourself, not good at all. Before you know it you'll have so many kinds of flour in your freezer you won't have room for waffles. :lol:

I buy the unfrozen Udi's from Trader Joes all the time. I put it in the freezer as soon as I get home and it's fine.

Everyone likes something different, but honestly, make your own.  Make a big batch of pancakes and freeze them yourself.  Way tastier. :)

I bought unfrozen Udis at Whole Foods and it was moldy by the next day.

My TJ's has gluten-free frozen waffles right by all the regular ones, so they definitely make them. Maybe if you talk to the manager then they could order some for the store?

 

I'm guessing, because you didn't list it, that you don't have Wegmans (mostly in the north east) but if you ever go where there is one, their gluten free frozen waffles are better than the normal ones and you get more per box. I would buy them even before I got my celiac diagnosis.

Another idea is to make banana bread.  It is great as French Toast, too.  I slice mine thickly, place wax paper between slices and freeze.  Easy peasy.  Or how about making muffins or cupcakes?  Very simple to make gluten free.  Eggs Benedict is one of my favourite things for breakfasts/lunches.  Just buy English muffins or use bread (homemade is best) or even bagels.  Toast 'em first and Bob's your uncle!  :D

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
