Hi!

I am newly diagnosed and gluten-free for two months. I have also been a vegetarian for 16 years and will not be changing that (I do eat dairy). I am finally getting a hang of eating gluten-free at home through cooking and have been bringing frozen gluten-free foods for lunch at work. My biggest problem is finding foods to take with me to eat a meal if I'm not around an oven or microwave. When I'm hungry I'm REALLY hungry and snacks like nuts, bars, fruit, veggies just don't cut it. I need real and a real meal. Any ideas and suggestions? (I don't like any gluten free sandwich breads so that is already out of the question) thanks for the help!!!

Gee, there aren't many options left. You are vegetarian, so that limits it some. You don't want to do nuts, bars, fruit or veggies. If you have an insulated bag to carry them, cheese or hard boiled eggs could work (if you eat eggs). There are gluten-free cookies, crackers, pretzels, etc., but I would not call those a meal.

I like cheese or Pb or almond butter & crackers and fruit. To me that's a meal.

Uh, uhm, ah, well...  have you thought about baking your own customized bread type items in the microwave, to make a single serving bun ?  Because then you could make a sandwich out of some thing.  You can make very high protein, pretty dense "breads" with some grated cheese added, such as a half chebe mix/half high protein seed or nut meal, with olive oil and egg, they are pretty filling.   That leaves the problem of what to put between the slices.  You could cook up some sort of bean based "meatloaf" and use that, I guess, with lettuce, tomato, cheese and avocado.  

Otherwise I would suggest a wide mouthed thermos and you cook extra soup or stew or even rice pasta elbows/twirlies and sauce for dinner, and the next day, leftovers packed in that.   For example, there is this thing we call speed casserole around here, you take one can of sweet corn, one can of diced tomatoes, and one can of well drained, rinsed beans,  throw it all together with some olive oil, salt, vinegar, cumin, and a dash of tabasco chipotle, and then cook it.  Serve with tortillas or whatever biscuits or microwave bread, and a green vegetable.  Makes several lunches, and goes well to potlucks as the public offering that people will eat even if it is gluten free.   You can also add some canned pumpkin to that to make a sort of soup if you add some broth and more spice.

I precook several sweet potatoes at once, then chop one up info fork sized pieces, and throw in.some other veg or salad, and some protein. Egg would work, or legumes etc. I find this really filling. A bit of good oil/fat helps with fullness too, olive, avocado or coconut oil are my favourite

Take whatever gluten-free bread you can have, spread a thick layer of humus on 2 slices, place your favorite veggies(cucumber, spinach, avocado etc) on including cheese. Makes a good sandwich.You can use different humus and veggies to change this around.

quinoa and bean salad

veggie chili (eat it cold)

veggie sandwich on lettuce (using cheese and/or hummus along with whatever else you'd put on a sandwich, like tomatoes, onions, sprouts, etc.)

rice cake w/ peanut butter (wrap is plastic wrap)

homemade muffins (almond flour is great for a heartier, more filing item)

 

oh, and drink at least 8oz of water with whatever you eat.  that will help a lot too.

Have you tried Canyon Bakehouse gluten-free breads? I had to actually call home for my daughter to check the package to make sure it was gluten-free, even though I knew it was. You could also use rice cakes, sorry for the slip up earlier.

    • ....OK ADMIN just delete this one just another slap in the face article. " After demand from the neighborhood, they will soon add gluten-free options, though these crepes will be prepared on the same griddle, so they're intended for those with mild celiac disease or those who just prefer to eat gluten-free. " 

      Sorry Numskull but "mild celiac" FFS there is no such thing, bloody residue smaller then crumbs and you get months of heighten antibodies an damage. This is very misleading and can lead to people newly diagnosed hurting themselves. NOW if you have no problem with gluten free oats, you can make a crepe like batter very easy, it is a bit fluffier like a hybrid between pancakes and crepes but try this one.
      I used to use gluten-free Harvest oat flour to make these but as I have adverse reactions to any kind of oats I gave this up. 50g Oat Flour
      1/4 tsp Salt
      1/2 tsp Cinnamon
      1 tbsp Maple syrup
      1/2 cup water
      2 tbsp applesauce
      Mix all ingredients togehter then let sit for 10mins for the it to thicken up before pouring in the pan. I used to cook them like pancakes but can be used for crepes due to the texture.
    • I’m so sorry you feel you must steal, that must be awful. The only thing I might consider is that it can become a habit, especially the self-justification part. Not that I'm recommending it right now for you , but with a ketogenic diet, the body goes into ketosis, not ketoacidosis, which is something that people with Type I diabetes can go into: in addition to their bodies burning fat, they also have insanely high levels of glucose in their blood. There’s no risk of ketoacidosis on a ketogenic diet, and in fact in the old days before insulin, one of the remedies was a ketogenic diet. It’s still often used for seizures as well. Plumbago
    • Hi Mary Anne, They take the skin biopsy from adjacent to a "lesion".  There are many possible symptoms of celiac disease.  DH is the skin rash symptom of celiac disease. It can take a year for itching to go away from what I've read.  Reducing iodine intake during symptoms may help reduce their duration.  You have to be gluten-free for symptoms to subside as DH is an immune reaction caused by celiac disease. A good place top start looking for knowledgable doctors is in a local support group.

    • I have said since diagnosis that there are two places that I never want to be in for fear I would die from what they would feed me. One is a hospital and the other is jail. Fresh or frozen fruits, veggies, fresh meats, eggs, cheeses etc are also the same proce for us as for anyone who isn't celiac. The specialty gluten free baked goods and convience foods are more expensive but we should be eating minimal amounts of those to begin with anyway. I also have a very limited income so I go with eggs in many forms and Thai Kitchen rice noodles with various veggies and canned beans like Garbanzo (Chichi) for protein. Some schools have food banks for students. Check and see if your school has one. There may not be a lot you can eat there but there will be something. Most cities have a food bank or Catholic Charities (you don't have to be Catholic to use their services) that can help.  My local one is good about letting me know when they have safe foods. They also get a lot of fresh produce this time of year. Have you checked into getting food stamps? You can just sign up for those but not the other services and the process is easier if you are not applying for cash help. You mention having your roommates using your pans and silverware and then having to buy new. A good cleaning on the silverware is enough to remove any gluten residues and if the pans are in good condition they will be fine after washing also. You might want to keep your food preperation items in a bin in your room and just wash and put them away after use then you will know only you are using your plates, pans, etc. I realize how important your education is and the need to finish but have you considered  temporarily suspending your studies until your health has improved? I had to do that with only 3 credit hours left in my degree programs. My grades were suffering and it was important to me to keep my high GPA. Talk to your advisor and see if this might be something you can arrange.  If you are in student housing with your roommates also talk to your advisor about the possibility of a move to better quarters. One of my children was put in senior housing as a freshmen to accomodate her need for her own cooking space. Wouldn't hurt to ask. I hope things improve for you soon. Everything about dealing with celiac can be overwhelming for a bit but hopefully things will improve for you soon.
