I was just wondering what gluten-free food y'all would classify as "indispensible" -- and whether it is a snack, staple, recipe, mix, or ready-made item. We were talking about this around the table and my son says glutano digestive biscuits with chocolate icing but I say EnerG sweet potato english muffins because we use them for everything under the sun -- pb and j, toast, pizza, etc..

HMMMM ... It's difficult to choose one. I LOVE those Ener-G Foods Brown Rice with Sweet Potato English muffins, but I also like their Harvest bread, and their granola bars. Can I just say ENER-G Foods Products? :lol: Actually, when I go on biking trips or day trips, I pack rice cakes (Lundberg Farms Sesame Seed), canned sardines and fresh fruit. I plan to take the first 2 and replace the fresh fruit with a bag of dried mixed fruit for my next airplane trip meal, since all those things are canned, processed or packaged and will pass airport inspections. ;)

Just off the top of my head, A Foods by George Brownie!! Those are quite yummy (I'd eat them if I could eat gluten, lol), call them dessert or snack. Also dairy free, which works great for me, since I can't have dairy either. =D

Rice cakes?

Seriously, I buy very few things that are designed to be gluten-free (being the whole-foods, cooking-from scratch freak that I am ;-) ), and probably rely on nothing other than rice cakes. If I were eating corn, I might say corn tortillas...

I haven't eaten reeses pieces at all since gluten-free however I did see them on a gluten-free list the other day! As far as indispensible products I would have to say rice which is naturally gluten-free as well as peanut butter.....fruit leather I also love the gluten-free rice pasta from tinkayada and Pamela's brownie mix! Also as far as gluten-free candy...everyone should try the Chunky by nestle its nuts raisens and chocolate and my absolute fave treat!!

i have 3 right now!!

bob's red mill bread mix:

i hadn't been able to find gluten-free bread since ive gone on this diet so i decided to attempt to make some tonight. i was very nervous considering i have never made bread in my life!! i thought for sure it would be a disaster , or wouldnt even taste like bread. But, i made it and it turned out great!!!!!!! it was pretty easy infact. i thought i died and went to heaven after eating a warm, fresh out of the oven peice of bread, and i couldnt even tell it was gluten free!

tinkyada pasta:

since i have discovered this, i have made macaroni & cheese (beats the box versions),lasagna, and spaghetti. before going gluten free i was the biggest pasta freak ever, so its nice to know that i still can be. these noodles taste like the real thing!

pamala'a cookies:

i tried the pecan sandies and the esprresso chip. i thought they were so good i want to try every kind! (and i thought i would lose weight from this diet! yeah , right)

Gluten Solutions Chocolate Mint protein bars, and ANDI bars.

We take these with us anytime we leave the house for more than a few hours, since they will do for a meal replacement when there is nothing else safe to eat. They are gluten and dairy free, contain 12 -15 grams of protein, and are pretty low in sugar and they taste really good.

God bless,

Mariann

Asian rice flour and Asian sweet (glutenous) rice flour! Hurrah for Asian markets! At only 50 cents a bag, this stuff is perfect for baking because it is nowhere near as gritty as the stuff in whole foods markets. Whenever possible I substitute these for other ingredients such as tapioca starch or regular rice flour. They have finally let me bake bread and cake that are better than regular boxed mixes and almost as cheap as regular baked goods.

Also, corn tortillas are a major staple for me now. I fry them for chips, eat them with soups, and make wraps from them.

Like Tarnalberry I eat very few prepared foods, but when I do I usually get Pamela's chocolate chunk cookies. The creamy chocolate used in them is unusual but delicious!

    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.
