Gf "junk Treats"...
0

21 posts in this topic

My better-half and I were talking yesterday, and she asked; what do I crave right now, if it didn't matter about ingredients. I said; a chili-cheeseburger and fries. So today, when she came in from being out, she had HQ ground beef, Borden cheddar cheese, and a nice store brand chili we found. So, we had one of our favorite "junk food treats" without the "junk"; the bread that is.

:-)

This was the first time I'd had something like this without the bread... which made me start thinking 'n' wondering about what other people have done to change/improve some of their favorite non-essential food treats.

Come-on everyone, let's share some ideas..... thanks, GC

When I REALLY want a Wendy's cheeseburger, I will go to Wendy's and buy the burger patties without anything on them (of course I get really strange looks when I tell them to just put the patties into a "boat") then I bring them home,put my own lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mayo and mustard and cheese on the patties and either put it on some gluten-free sandwich bread or eat it without the bread! Sure satisfies a craving!

Great idea for a post!

I found a recipe for a chocolate polenta cake and made it friendly to celiac AND my allergies and it tasted just like chocolate cake! I topped it with fresh berries and it was so yummy!

Another thing I do is make cheese sauce out of nutritional yeast and put it on EVERYTHING>...............!

When I'm craving something really good, I make brownies, put vanilla ice dream on them, and some Hershey's syrup heated up poured over it all. It's really good and reminds me of Chocolate Thunder from Down Under at Outback, which is a good gluten free but not dairy free dessert.

My "better half" refers to a husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend. My husband will introduce me to someone new by saying, "I don't think you have met my better half Kimberly..." ;)

Hi lorka150,

The chocolate polenta cake sounds great. I have alot of other allergies as well: egg whites,peanut, rice, and pinnapple. I have been looking for a cake for a while. Would this recipe be ok with my allergies?

Thanks,

Traci

Yes, it is an American English expression. Each person in the couple is considered "half' of the whole, so it is a joke in our country to call the other person the "better" half.

Use Caution at Wendys.

You will need to watch them make the food (just peer around - the kitchen is behind the cash register normally).

I went to a Wendy's last week and ordered my usual "Double With Cheese, No Bun, Lettuce Tomato Onion Only, Extra Cheese. Anyway, I always watched them make it. This time, the cook made my burger and put it on a bun!!!!

I quickly grabbed a manager, told him about my "allergy" and you know what his response was?? he said, "Hey guys, that burger is no bun, take the bottomburger off with the bun and give this guy a new bottom burger and out it in a new wrapper.....

I looked at him and said, "Hey man, one crumb and I get sick, can you get me a new burger please?"

He paused and then looked back to see what they were doing......at that same time, the cook took a new patty and put the whole thing down........ON ANOTHER BUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unbelievable!!!!!!

The manager then stepped in and made a new burger according to my instructions.

I normally do not have a bad time at Wendys, but this just shows you that we, as Celiacs, have to be there watching (no drive through -- sorry -- its unsafe to take that chance) ---

You can eat there, but make sure you either watch what they are doing or GRAB A MANAGER and have them make it....

Also, watch if they use the same "shovel" for the fries and the chicken nuggets -- cross-contamination galore!!!!

I am allergic to rice - it's such a bummer, eh?

For the cake (which I made with carob), there are two eggs and four egg whites. I can still post the recipe, but can you work around that?

Just remembered today; we normally make for eiter Thanksgiving or Christmas, what's called a "Mystery Pie"... similar to a Pecan Pie, but with roughly half the corn syrup replaced with cream cheese... after it bakes, it has formed two unigue [and tastey] layers! This year it's got to be gluten-free, so we talked about making the pie shell from ground pecans and butter/margarine.

If anyone is interested, I'll get the 'better-half' to relay through me the fixings...

Yeah, I think I can use egg substitute. The one I have works great with a variety of recipes.

Thanks so much,

I would love that recipie (for when my body likes dairy again). Thanks!

I'm thinking about going to the store later to grab the ingredients for some gluten-free "Rice Krispie" Treats. I've decided to make what I'm calling "Sugar-Death Bombs" and substitute Cocoa Pebbles for the [unsafe] Rice Krispies.

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,
