Free Vegan, Gluten-Free Menus And Dizziness

7 posts in this topic

I am new to all of this.  i have been a vegan since 68 and my blood counts are always good with the exception of low vit. d which I supplement. I now have found out that I have Celiac disease.  I have been sticking to a strict gluten-free diet for about 3 weeks now and am dizzy, weak and nauseous.  I saw a dietician today and was hoping to get a menu but didn't.  When i look on line for a vegan, gluten-free menu plan that doesn't require lots of prep time and expense (I am disabled and on a budget, aren't we all?  :) ) it seems as if you have to either pay for the menus by joining a club or they are recipes that take lots of ingredients.  Does anyone know of an easier way that I could go about this?  IE How to convert my recipes, and where can i find a decent loaf of bread or a bread recipe that is vegan and gluten-free? Thanks and God bless!   :D

Have you tried googling (or whatever search engine you use) "gluten free egg free"  Or "gluten free vegan"?  I know there are a lot of dairy and egg free gluten-free recipes out there.  Not sure about meal plans.  You might have to do that yourself.

 

The good thing is that these  are naturally gluten-free- beans, rice, millet, buckwheat, nuts, seeds, veggies, fruits are all gluten-free. 

 

You can make things ahead.  Make a big batch of rice and set aside or freeze for another meal.  Find fresh sweet corn cheap?  freeze it or cook it and freeze it for later.  Use a slow cooker to make bean based veggie soups.  Eat as is or put over rice or add rice or corn noodles at the end.  The rice noodles used for Asian cooking can be cheap.  Just read the ingredients - some have wheat in them.  Salsa, rice, corn, bell peppers, zucchini, a can of fire-roasted tomatoes are yummy - I like the left-overs even better.

I suggest just buying a gluten free flour blend to modify the recipes you already have. 

 

My favorite cookbook for baking is The Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook How to Bake without Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, Tree nuts, and Sesame by Cybele Pascal.  She has a flour blend recipe.  The flour blend works great, but sometimes I can't find all the flour or starches for the blend without spending a fortune.  So sometimes the premade flour blends can be cheaper.

 

Enjoy Life and Namaste make SOME products that might work for you.  Always read the label.

I've been a veggie for over 30 yrs now and when I was dx with celiac 9 months ago I felt so daunted by the idea there was something else I couldnt eat. In actual fact being a veggie has probably helped me because after 30 years I'm used to scrutinising labels lol. There's loads of free websites like www.theglutenfreevegan.com but I tend to do what Karen says and use a slow cooker and make big batches and freeze. I've never been a confident cook but now I'm learning! I buy allsorts of veggies, make soups, curries, chinese and just different stock/sauces and then have potatoes, rice, quinoa etc to go with it. I also do lots of healthy smoothies.

I suppose I'm vegan myself now as since going gluten free I've discovered intolerances to dairy and eggs.

I'm sure I've seen a vegan bread recipe on here somewhere so it maybe worth you doing a search but I will have a look too.

What kind of foods do you normally like to eat ?

Have a look at the newbie101 thread, ask loads of questions ....welcome! :)

Do you cook the potato until its as soft as you would to eat a baked potato? Does it hold together well enough?

I bake the potatoes in the oven till its soft inside & crispy outside. Refrigerate overnight makes it easy to slice. Taste really good!

    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
