I am trying so hard to go gluten-free, this is so hard, I dont know how you guys do it. I have a 10 month old, and my husband has been out of town, so it is so hard to make a meal. So instead of taking the chances of eating something with gluten , I just skip meals. I weighed 105 3 weeks ago and now I am down to 99. What can I make fast and what can I have just laying around to snack on. I finally bought some fruit tonight, so at least if all else fails i can have fruit. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much.

Really really fast?

Beans

-------

1. Open up a can of garbanzo beans, drain, rinse, pour into a bowl, season with a touch of garlic salt and cumin. Eat. Consider adding olive oil for a bit extra fat.

2. If you've got 10 minutes, open a can of garbanzo beans, black beans, and kidney beans, drain and rinse. Grate a large zucchini, and a large carrot and throw that in as well. Chop up a small red onion and a small red bell pepper into small pieces, or use a cuisinart to do this for you, and toss it in. Chop one avocado and toss it in. (Leave out one or two of those vegetables if you don't have them or don't like them.) Add 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1/4 tsp sage, 1/4 tsp cayanne. Add honey mustard dressing if you've got any (I like Annie's), or 2-3 tablespoons good oil and 1-2 tablespoons white wine or cider vinegar.

3. If you've got 15 minutes, and some leftover chiken, make the item above, then chop up the chicken and throw it in.

4. If you've got 20 minutes, brown 1 lb ground turkey in 2-3 tablespoons oil, add one can drained kidney beans, one can drained black beans, two cans diced tomatoes, and one chopped onion. Add 1-2 tbsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp sage. Simmer 10 minutes, then stir in one can of tomato paste.

5. If you'll be home for a few hours, and can spare 1 minute out of every half hour for the cooking, combine a cup of Bob's 13-bean mix, a box of Imagine Chicken broth, one onion, 1/2 tsp sage, and 1 tsp salt in a large pot. Bring to a simmer, and for the next four hours, check it every half hour or so, stirring and adding water to cover the beans as necessary.

Veggies

---------

1. If you've got some time at home, but only 10 minutes for the prep work, slice a sweet potato into thin slices, toss with a tablespoon or two of olive oil, sprinkle with salt, spread out onto a cookie sheet, and cook in a 350F oven for 45 minutes or so.

2. If you've got a cuisinart and five minutes, blend one can drained garbanzo beans, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2-3 cloves garlic, 2-4 tbsp lemon juice, and 1/4 cup tahini. Serve hummus with baby carrots.

For really quick snacks:

A can of tuna.

Half an avocado.

A handful of almonds.

Peanut butter on rice cakes.

Peanut butter on an apple.

What I do is cook and freeze. When I make a gluten-free meal for me, I make enough to put some in the freezer. That way, I have a "nuke it" meal for later. It makes cooking easier because I'm not "wasting time and energy" on just one little meal, and I have something for the times when I don't feel like cooking.

quick meal

take a corn tortillia ( i use mission) heat it on the oven rack for 5 mins at about 350 degrees, then add refired beans and shredded cheese ( bearitos beans and kraft cheese). when the cheese is melted add diced tomatoes and sliced avacados to the top ( and sour cream if you like) it's so good and easy to prepare!!

try tinkyadya pasta (gluten free and tastes like the real thing)

you can make macaroni and add velveeta cheese or kraft sredded

i would suggest stocking up (if you like pasta) and for a quick fix you can boil some up and add many different veggies and you can try different variations. (classico and rague sauces are gluten free)

since you need to gain weight, you should snack on avacados, bananas, nuts,etc. (look for bumble bars, they are made of seeds and nuts and gluten free)

quick dinners ideas (cook a package of chicken legs with kraft BBQ sauce, cover pan w/ foil and cook about 45 mins.) or make salmon w/ lemon juice and butter on top and a baked sweet potato on the side)

i hope you like some of these suggestions...i hate cooking but love to eat so everything i make is simple but good :P

you NEED to eat though!!

I've been eating Bumble Bee canned salmon, either red alaska salmon or the pink. I mix it with just a touch of Hellman's mayo for flavor and to moisten it up a bit. If you like eggs, that's a quick idea, and the freezing foods idea is a must for me...I make chicken and rice soup and freeze tons of it for later. Having fresh fruit around is a must for me, too (I hate to cook) and rice cakes and peanut butter. If you trust eating certain processed foods, Ballpark 100% beef hot dogs are gluten-free (I've called the company 3 times over the past few months to confirm and re-confirm this) and they're pretty good after only a minute or two of microwaving.

smoothies/milkshakes are definitely a way to go. they work great for me for breakfast, since I get up at the last possible minute, can make a smoothie in 5 minutes, pour it in my nalgene bottle, and take it to work with me and drink it over the subsequent hour. being dairy intolerant, I use soy milk and frozen fruit. for added calories, or to balance out the amount of sugar (I have hypoglycemic tendencies, though the soy is usually enough for me on that one), add ground flax meal (in the freezer right next to the frozen fruit just waiting), or coconut milk.

Don't forget rice. You can cook a large pot of rice and then as long as you refrigerate it when it is cool, it will last for quite a few days. Then you can heat up a bowl of it anytime you need, and top it with any of the wonderful suggestions the others have made. You don't want to do too much low carb meals or you won't keep the weight on.

I also like to have Progresso soups on hand for a quick easy meal. They clearly list wheat, rye, barley, and oats on the labels.

If you have a crock pot you can start a meal on low when you go to bed and then you have ready made food when you get up. You can unplug it and it stays hot nearly all day. Some good crock pot meals are chicken noodles (Tinkyada brand is the best) with veggies, beef stew, pot roast with veggies, or just cook the meat (beef, chicken, or pork) and then you have meat ready to eat anytime.

Some other snacks are dried fruit, tortilla chips, nuts, jerky (Pacific Gold Beef Jerky Original, Peppered and Hot & Spicy are gluten-free and can be bought at Costco, also Pemmican Long Lasting Style Beef Jerky Original flavor is gluten-free), Blue Diamond Nut Thin crackers, rice crackers, canned fruit, canned veggies, Enviro Kids cereal bars, ANDI bars, Gluten Solutions protein bars, Alpsnack fruit/nut bars.

Many of the foods on your shelves might be safe and you don't realise. This is a link to a very good gluten-free food list. You should use it only as a guideline, but don't trust it 100%. You still need to check labels on all the products you buy/consume because ingredients change very frequently. But it will give you ideas of what foods are safe. http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist.pdf

I know it is hard to find good things to eat when you first start the diet, but you need to keep up your energy and get plenty of nutrients, so you can take care of your precious baby.

God bless,

Mariann

I know you're new at this but when you think about, there's more that we can eat than can't. Fry a piece of meat and cook some vegetables (or open a can). Do NOT skip meals, especially with a 10-month-old to take care of.

Don't forget the potatoes. Agree with the freezing, with 3 active kids, in three different schools with three different schedules, a husband who works until who knows when this time of the year, pets, etc. I bake meat for lunches and quick meals later in the week for me, the kids and husband have easier food since none of them need to eat gluten-free and therefore, easier, faster, etc. That way, I am really only cooking a couple of times a week. Just add potatoes (cook a bunch at once for re-heating during the week), veggies, and fruit or almods for quick snacks. Sometimes I cook about 2 pounds of ground sirloin (lower quality meats bother my digestive system so that is why I use sirloin or better) into hambergers to use in spaghetti (use brown rice pasta) or to eat as is later in the week too...

The rest of my family eat my gluten-free meals about 50 % of the time, they just add extras to theirs like sauces, cheese, and regular bread products.

It gets easier...

Hi,

I apologize for posting here when I have nothing to add (I'm new to all this gluten-free stuff, just joined this site today). But I keep posting new messages and they don't show up so I wanted to see if this one would.

Aeval

P.S. The cooking tips on this thread were helpful. Thanks.

Thank you all for your suggestions, they all sound great! You made me hungry ;) ! I hope it does get easier, I find that there are many things that are gluten-free, but I have found thingss that I would have never guessed had gluten actually do. Does anybody have any good suggestions for a breakfast cereal? I thought for sure Rice Krispies would be okay, but I just found out while at the grocery store that they have malt just like almost every other cereal I looked at, even corn flakes, and corn and rice checks, i just couldnt believe it, here I thought I could have some rice krispie bars. thanks again for all the great ideas, I will print them all out. And thank you to for that link, that should help me quite a bit.

Do you have a George Foreman Grill? They are great! I can put a few frozen chicken tenders on for ten minutes and I have the basis for an easy meal. The gluten-free cereals I buy are Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Pebbles and Kashi Cranberry Sunshine. Also for easy snacks/meals: cheese quesadillas, Omelettes, yogurt, trail mix, Healthy Choice chicken and rice soup, Kozy Shack Puddings, Fritos, Corn Tortilla chips, most salsas, etc.

I do hot cereals a lot at the moment (easy to take to work premixed with liquid) - quinoa flakes, Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal, rice bran, cream of rice, and cream of buckwheat. Flavored with a bit of honey, cinnamon, and vanilla, it's all good. :-)

For cold cereals, I've done the Corn or Rice Crunch-Ems (Health Valley, I think), I have Gorilla Munch on occasion (but find it too sweet for anything but dessert), and really like Erewon's Brown Rice Crisps with Berries.

are cocoa pebbles really gluten free?? i didnt think any of the really good ones were ;) i will be stocking up on that if it is infact gluten-free!!!!

another suggestion is going to allrecipes.com. there are TONS of recipes there ( it is not a glutenfree site) BUT you can pretty much substitute anything a recipe calls for. i have been wanting to make chicken parmesan and there is a really simple recipe on there and all i have to do is get some gluten-free flour mix. (bob's redmill makes one)

but at least check that site out for ideas.

wow this is great. I had the exact same problem and all these ideas will definately help.

I was having the same problem: felt like a good gluten free meal had to be elaborate and time-consuming. And snacking was a big problem - like you, I need to eat things in a hurry, and I'm hypoglycemic, so, I need to eat often, AND avoid sugar as well as gluten.

Here are my snacks:

Mozzerella cheese sticks (Frigo) with Edward & Sons' Brown Rice Snaps and V8

Veggies w/Cabot dip

Fritos, Lays chips, Cheetos, Act II popcorn

Philadelphia cream cheese with EnerG crackers

Yoplait light yogurt or Yoplait Light Nouriche (much less sugar than the rest!)

Salads w/gluten-free dressings & EnerG prezels

Pamela's gluten-free cookies w/goats milk (eaier to digest if lactose intolerant)

My meals:

Fresh fist (steamed) w/Success boil in bag rice & fresh veggie

Steak w/mashed potatos and broccoli

gluten-free Tinkyada pasta w/hamburg in Contadina sauce

Fresh chicken marinaded in gluten-free dressing, or baked cornish hens (takes a bit longer)

w/boil-in-bag rice & fresh veggies.

Ham steak w/veggies (very simple and fast)

gluten-free TV dinner (Amy's)

Once a week a cook a stew or soup or roast and have leftovers later in the week.

All of these meals can be prepare & cooked w/in about a 1/2 hour - except for the cornish hens which can take up to an hour or so depending on how big they are.

I just start my longest cooking veggies first and follow with the remaining things. I may start my grill while I peel the potatos and it's ready to cook on when all the veggies are on the stove. And steak, chikken and pork don't take long to cook on the grill - and no mess when you're done. The Success boil-in-bag rice only takes 10 minutes to cook and stays nice and hot in the bag when it's done if you didn't time it to be done with everything else, and simple to clean up after (the other rice makes a sticky pan after. I love steamed fish - it tastes fresh and it's very simple and fast to cook. Put a fine strainer in a big pot with very little water and it's boiling and ready to steam fish in - in just a few minutes. And fish cooks VERY quickly this way - just don't OVER cook it. 10-15 minutes is good, depending on thickness and type (Salmon takes about 15).

I'm still trying to gain weight. I just started baking some of my own good in the hopes that I can gain weight this way. Snacks like veggies and light yogurt don't add pounds, but hopefully a little banana bread here and there will (Bob's Red Mill's gluten-free all-purpose flour has recipe on back). I also snag a tablespoon of peanut butter (Skippy) after my meal. I've just started gaining a few pounds doing this (still only 93), but praying I'll gain some more - tired of clothes hanging all over me, and childrens' clothes don't really appeal to me.

Hang in there. This site is awesome and has helped me so much. I totally sypathize with you. I've got a 3 year old boy at home and 2 in school with soccer practice/games, outside activities, new puppy, other animals and.... let's not forget...A HUSBAND (!) We need all the energy we can get. So stock up on some quick foods, but, try to take time to eat right - it is SO important. I will not let our crazy, busy, lifestyle lead us all into eating tv dinners every night!

Bless you!

There's a company called "Amy's" which has come out with a line of frozen, packaged gluten-free meals. And they taste terrific! My local grocery store, Harris Teeter, just started to carry them. They're mostly Mexican style,from what I've seen, meaning that they would not be good for folks sensitive to corn or lactose. For me, they've been a blessing for those times I don't have the energy or time to cook. And my Celiac-free boyfriend loves them too!

Good luck....

Angel

    • Hi! I've just been recently diagnosed as Celiac through the whole biopsy-shebang, and I have a little bit of insight on the whole diagnosis thing and how I was eventually diagnosed, and my advice for you. Brace yourself, this might be a bit long, but it might be worth the read and I promise I will eventually get to the point. If you don't want the huge story, skip to the long line of capital As: I first saw my doctor when I had a few problems swallowing. I've compared it to when you're nervous and you feel like you have a lump in your throat - but after I eat and (sometimes) drink. I just mentioned briefly it to my family doctor when I was addressing another issue, but right away he referred me to a gastroenterologist and ordered a barium swallow x-ray test. The x-ray came back completely normal, and so the g.e. then suspected GERD, put me on acid blockers to see if they would work, no harm done sort of thing. The only thing I got out of the acid blockers were the side effects, so it was back to square 1. The g.e. said that the next test he could do was an upper endoscopy with biopsies. (hint: the celiac test!) Wanting to find a solution to my problems, the endoscopy was scheduled. Pretty painless, I was in and out in a day, but the results took much much longer. Biopsies, or the little pieces of my esophagus, stomach, and small intestine, were sent to the lab, and they came back clean. I didn't really go back to the g.e. for a whole year after that because life became busy, I wasn't prompted to follow up, and I just dismissed the swallowing problems the best I could and went on my way. Now, I've never been huge on the gluten, big bread-y sandwiches or croissants or pies were never foods that I super "enjoyed". I wouldn't feel bad after eating them, I just didn't like the taste of bread so much, but I loved cookies, cake and a lot of other things that do have gluten in them. I lead a lowish gluten life but I wasn't really monitoring it that way. Everything changed when I got really nasty (systemic) poison ivy. My eyes were swollen shut, and the rash was everywhere. I almost went to the hospital, but cooped out at the family doctor's place and got a script for prednisone (a steroid). But, I found that after I had tapered off the steroids, I had magically become lactose intolerant. So back to the family doctor again probably because I broke my toe or something, but we also got to talk about this magical lactose intolerance business (because I love anything dairy and it was indeed devastating). He was surprised as there is literally no correlation between steroids and becoming lactose intolerant. He asked me if I still had the swallowing problems, which I did, and so it was back to the g.e. for round 3. because my family doctor "does not believe in coincidences". Meeting with the G.E., he mainly addressed the swallowing problems telling me that he had done what he could to diagnose with the technology that we had at the highly specialized hospital that we were at, and I would have to travel about 3 hours away to see a different doctor who would do some tests involving the muscles in the esophagus. But right before I was about to leave, we started talking about lactose intolerance. He brought up other foods that I was avoiding (if any), and then the conversation went to gluten. I mentioned that I had an aunt that was gluten-sensitive. He advised that I do the blood test that can show an indication of celiac whenever in the future. I decided to do it that day. At this point in time, I was not eating much gluten because of the fact that it was personal preference. The normal range for values in this test is from 0 to 20. A few weeks later, I learned that I scored a 35. A second upper endoscopy with biopsies was scheduled, but this time I was told to eat a moderate amount of gluten everyday before the procedure. I ate about two slices of bread per day, which is more than I normally would. I was normal for the first two-three weeks of the gluten plus diet, but then I became really sick. I started getting the normal celiac symptoms, like diarrhea and extreme tiredness. Near the end, I had debilitating stomach pain and I was 2 times more asleep than awake each day. I couldn't do the 2 pieces of bread a day some days, but the pain was still there. I knew that I wouldn't ever have to force myself to eat bread for a test ever again. I was called a few days before my endoscopy telling me that a kid in a worse state than me had to take the OR during my time. I forced myself to eat more bread for another month and a half. The day finally came. I was diagnosed celiac, which I have concluded to be initiated by (1) the steroids/poison ivy and (2) the gluten binge fest.  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Celiac Disease isn't completely understood yet. Most of the time if you weren't showing symptoms when you were a baby (so your case) it means that celiac was/could be triggered by an event in your life that causes stress on the body (like stress, physical injury, etc.).  The positive result that you got from the blood test doesn't automatically mean celiac, but it could. Here's some options: Talk to your doctor (or a different doctor) or even a specialist gastroenterologist (you can get a referral from a family doctor (general physician)) and see if you can do the blood test again, you have to have some kind of gluten for this to work in advance, so if you don't want to break your gluten-free streak, than don't really invest in this option. If you feel comfortable, you could even ask to do this test under a few scenarios (no gluten (now) and after a gluten binge, compare results). If you do this test and your indication is low off gluten and then high after gluten, I'd probably skip the biopsy. That's a strong enough sign that you don't need to put yourself through the painful-gluten binge. Maybe this is what that first doctor just assumed. But having that test when you haven't had any gluten could make the difference - it acts as a control. Go straight to the biopsy. You could do this, but I'd probably do the blood test first. I went through a lot of stress with the gluten-binge that you have to do to get an accurate result, you would also be breaking your gluten-free diet that may/may not be helping you right now. Do nothing, stay on your gluten free diet hoping that it is helping you. But if you are not celiac or gluten-sensitive (celiac before it starts to wreck your small intestine), going gluten free isn't healthy - you can do some research on this if it interests you. If you feel bad/unhealthy after going gluten free it's probably a sign. Good luck, also know that you might come to a point of stress in your life that can start celiac's destructive path. Ultimately, it is your body, and you should not feel forced or hesitate to act on health issues that impact you.
    • I'm sorry that life is so hard right now. Really.  I can't imagine working 3 jobs and trying to manage this terrible illness.  I think about American society and their obsession with food often.  Whenever you look at the internet, there are all these fabulous gluten-free recipes, but when you don't have time or money to cook these things, a simple gluten-free lifestyle is just that - simple. There isn't a lot of variety, so it's kind of boring. But, I guess I have gotten used to being boring. I just eat corn chex and fruit or yogurt for breakfast. I eat a lot of eggs, beans, rice, corn tortillas, nuts, chicken, fruit and veggies.  A loaf of gluten-free bread will last me 4-6 months in the freezer.  I buy a bag of dried beans for $1.29, I soak them overnight, and put them in the crockpot the next day. I add different spices, sometimes chicken and Voila! - dinner is ready when I get home from a long day. Family gatherings are miserable and I haven't quite figured out the best way to deal yet. If my grandmother were still alive, I imagine she would be a lot like yours - well-meaning but not really able to understand the nitty-gritty.   I just reassure my family that I am fine and that they really shouldn't do anything special for me. I bring a bag of Hershey's kisses or other gluten-free candy I can nibble on along with my meal and then I try to treat myself to a nicer home cooked meal later in the week when I have time to cook - because who has time to cook during Christmas???? And, I agree with knitty knitty. If someone else in your family/friends were gluten-free for medical reasons, it would make socializing a bit easier. One of my husband's good friends is NCGS. When we get together as a group, we can make each other special dishes and it helps to feel less isolated.  Good luck!  
    • Hi!  Um, please forgive my quirky sense of humor..... Celiac Disease is genetic... All first degree relatives of people diagnosed with Celiac Disease should be tested for the disease, too.  Gall bladder problems are often associated with Celiac Disease.  Your diagnosis might save your whole family from further medical problems as they age and the disease progresses... You need to set a good example if relatives are similarly diagnosed.... and then everybody will have to eat gluten free at family gatherings....  
    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/
