Gf "junk Treats"...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.  
    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!
