I also cant cook.

 

I eat ALOT of regular baked beans AND ALOT of kettle chips. What else? EVERYTHING is cross contaminated...there should be a law that if you cant cross contaminate to save money! I like to have gluten free take away but am literally charged an arm and a leg.

There is heaps of everyday fresh food you can eat. Have you joined the coeliac society in your state. You get a discount card for coles. Also meetings, magazines and support and they offer supermarket tours and courses in label reading. There's plenty of food to eat. It just takes time an patience to find it. Buy a rice cooker for quick filling meal starter. Get a bread machine and fing a good bread mix. I buy in bulk from basic ingredients in brisbane. You can get reasonably priced gluten-free ready meals from Easy Meals via the web delivered. Just heat and serve with rice. Also why buy kettle chips. Smiths plain are also gluten-free and half the price. Buy prepared salad leaves, a tin of tuna(flavoured ok if you check label) add some tomato an maybe tinned beans, corn, beet root or other verges and you have healthy salad. It's easy. Low carb is the easiest way to eat gluten-free.

Well, you can roast a chicken breast or fish fillet in the oven.  Simple stuff and fairly cheap.

 

Potatoes you can slice up and boil or throw the entire potato in the oven to bake or put it in the microwave.

 

Rice is easy - 1 cup rice to two cups water bring to a boil and then turn down to simmer for either 15 minutes (white rice) or 45 minutes (brown rice).

 

You can do stir fries in a snap:  cut up whatever meat you want, throw it in the pot with olive oil, fry till cooked and then add in cut up vegetables.  Done in twenty minutes.  Add in ginger and garlic.

    • To me it sounded like he thought frying corn chips would contaminate the oil .     I never eat there.  I know a few years ago, the one by me was pretty Celiac friendly.  Maybe you had to have grilled wings?  They would get a clean bowl to toss them for Celiacs.  I don't know because I wasn't interested.  Maybe it depends on the store?  I would imagine one in Portland or Seattle or Denver , might be more aware than one in Omaha?  But even that depends.....
    • I would not eat there either for many reasons listed already. But what is wrong with yeast? *quote from op, not kareng 
    • Hi,  I just wanted to add some insight to my question on the test results.  I am 58 experiencing stress fractors to the foot without any extra activity.  I have osteoporosis and the thought process of the doctors is that I have another cause besides age for the osteoporosis.  The foot is not healing after 11 weeks in a boot.  Ortho sent me to Endo.  Endo did blood test.  Hormones normal and received the below results on Celiac.  I have had osteoarthritis since 21, Was diagnosised at 29 as being allergic to wheat, symptom was I lost my voice after having my first child.  Had my second at 32 and magic I could eat wheat again and not lose my voice.  Last year I was tested autoimmune because of lung issues; MAC and bronchiaestasis.  IGA was high then but no further testing.  I do not have digestion issues except lactose intolerant.  I do have low values on vitamin D. I do not go back to Endo until 2 weeks from now.  My sister is fighting her own issues which is pointing to autoimmune but drs. have figured her out yet.  My mom as MS and her mom died of ALS, Dad's side had Lupus.  Any thoughts?
    • I am sorry to hear you are having these problems with airborne particle sensitivity. My initial symptoms were neurological (extreme fatigue and visual migraines) and dermatological.  I had "eczema" from the base of my skull to my bra-line that itched and burned terribly.   I do not have Celiac disease but I do have gluten intolerance.  I have remained strictly gluten free for 6.5 years now (except for occ'l "glutenizing" by someone trying hard to be nice and feed me something they believe is gluten-free).  The first year I was gluten free I continued to have this rash in a smaller area but it would flare in the hairline.  We found gluten free oats in a product we used and cutting out oats almost completely alleviated my skin reaction.  My doctor informed me that the protein in oats is similar to other grains containing gluten so I may be reacting to it even though it is not actually gluten.   I now use only gluten free hair products as I have long hair and I figure that even though it is external hair blows in my face and I push it away or I may touch my hair to push it out of the way when eating or socializing.  Everyone is different as far as items they tolerate but I have had good results with Griffin Remedy (available online at their website), Aura Cacia (although they do use Cetryl Alcohol which I used to try to avoid for other reasons), and Avalon Organics Cucumber gluten-free shampoo and conditioner.  You probably already use gluten-free facial care products and lip glosses as you sound knowledgeable about Celiac and gluten-free issues. I don't buy any of my gluten free products from a store where they are shelved with the regular baking products.  (I would be OK with washing an item if it were plastic packaged but many are in cardboard so I personally feel the risk of contamination goes up).  I am blessed to be married to a man who is open minded and glad to see me feeling better so there is nothing with gluten in our home (in food products).  My diet is similar to the person who stated, "Solid advice" above.  Finally, if I am going out with friends I take food along with me except for a very few establishments where I am sure that I am safe.  I also bring a bottle of water or iced tea, and even a napkin, as some people preparing food may be touching something with gluten and then handling glasses for beverages or setting tables without being fully aware (as was mentioned above pertaining to the gluten-free oats).  I also found with the gluten-free diet fad that I have to be vigilant in asking about preparation in unknown venues (i.e. We were on a ski vacation and I was excited to see gluten-free items on the menu BUT the preparation area was not segregated, nor was the cookware.  I was able to explain my needs and accommodations were made.  Hopefully, the owner were more educated regarding the needs of people with gluten sensitivities vs. dietary preference and made some changes in their practices.) I hope you find the piece to your puzzle that works for you!    
    • My daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease 5 months ago after she had fallen off the growth chart. She is 7 years old. Anyone happen to know when we may start seeing celiac growth spurt? I'm worried because in the past 5 months she's grown 1/2 an inch and has only gained 1/2 lb. We are following up with her endocrinologist this week and I want to be prepared before we go in to see her. Thanks!
