This post is especially for the newbie people trying to go gluten-free. I was diagnosed in December of 2002. I already was soy limited due to my long history of hypothroidism plus add gluten-free/Casein free. PHEW!!!

This past thanksgiving meal I cooked for 11 people. Nine people do not have any dietary restrictions. My husband should be gluten-free but cheats. Of course, I obstain from Gluten like the plague.

My mom brought the stuffing and pumpkin pie. I made delicious gluten-free biscuits from Pamela's pancake mix. Turkey, gluten-free gravy, very delicious. Biscuits (not gluten-free)Cranberries, mashed potatoes, sweet, sweet potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise sauce, and a green bean casserole(which was not gluten-free). Finally, I made a gluten-free apple crisp which I loved. I did put gluten-free ice cream on top!! Yummy!!

What is the most exciting is that my body is more tolerant of the casein than it has been in the past. I make a point to only eat the casein on special occasions.

It was a HAPPY THANKSGIVING THIS YEAR!

Yep, I made the whole meal gluten-free/CF/VLF (that last one is VLF), and while it was tricky and my husband still can't stand the aftertaste of gluten-free flours (hence he didn't like the pie), it was considered tasty by everyone. I only wish I could eat all the pie at once without blowing my diet! ;-)

I ate mashed potatos with butter only, sweet potatos, turkey that was the furthest from the stuffing and while everyone else was having pie, I made a desert that was sugar walnuts, ice cream, choclate syrup and whipping cream. Now I am sick but don't know why. I was so proud of myself because my mom makes the very best dinner rolls I have ever had and I picked one up when nobody was watching but put it back down. I decided cheating was not worth it. The problem is I am sick and I wonder if it was the jerkey I ate on the way down. I had read on a post in here it was ok but then after I ate it I noticed it was smoked. Could that of done it? ;)

Thanks

My bet would go on the turkey that was cooked with the stuffing. CONTAMINATION!!!! Never eat turkey that is cooked with stuffing.

Are you saying that even though the turkey I ate never touched the turkey it could still have gluten? I am so confused because I thought that as long as my food didn't touch the stuffing it would be ok?

What is the best thing to do when I go to realtives houses for dinner?

If you are eating turkey that was cooked with stuffing inside of the bird, you are asking for trouble.

Ok, Thanks Jessica

I guess it wouldn't of made a difference then if I had eaten that roll! I don't really mean that, it's just sometimes I wish I could eat all of the foods I miss most. I used to love to bake and cook and it seems that I don't have the energy for cooking anymore. When I do it never tastes the same. Guess I am just feeling sorry for myself now. :unsure:

Let's say you're stuffing a bird. You grab a handful of stuffing with one hand, and hold onto the turkey with the other, and shove it in. As the bird gets full, you may use both hands to get the stuffing inside the turkey. Then you hold the turkey again on another handful. Bingo - stuffing on the turkey, where you might eat it.

    • You'll get to the point where you can eat other things, you just have to give it time. Can you do eggs? Hard boiled eggs. They make fast snacks and are highly portable. If you make nut butters, you can just eat it by the spoonful.  I don't like "normal" coconut macaroons, too wet for me, ick! I found this recipe though which drives me insane --- sooooooo good I about swallow my tongue. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/toasty-coconut-macaroons-recipe-1912139 Don't know if you like them or not but re-fried beans. I NEED my carbs!!!!! If I don't get carbs, I will get weak & shaking 30 minutes after eating. I can't eat every 30 minutes!!! So I eat a lot of re-fried beans. I make a big vat & then portion into containers & freeze. If you have or get a stick blender, it will make super fast work of mashing those beans up. Only takes 2 minutes or less. I use olive oil in mine & lots of it -- need that fat. 
    • Coconut, almond butter, and cocoa nib fat bombs...I use plant fats to do it. You can make some great snacks out of fresh almond butter, shredded or coconut flour, and cocoa nibs. Sweeten with stevia for little dough like balls of goodness. Oh you miss potato chips, two options here I like to make my own protein chips with pea protein, or I can have 2-4 protes chips (vegan pea protein  chips made by a company) but they have to be eaten in moderation. Coconut chips....yeah I get Lets' Do Organic ones I can snack on a hand full of them or throw a handful of cocoa nibs in my mouth for snacks. If you like meat, try making jerky. get a dehydrator season your own and just do it.....lucky you can eat meat. I miss making roast in a crock pot....I used to make some of the best shredded meats. My old smoker.....I could make some of the best ribs and roast EVER. The jerky can be made and taken for snacks on the road or while out, crack open a can of spinach (canned unsalted delmonte does not bother me) or pack some stewed greens and have some jerky tear it up stir it in canned keto on the go. Other lovely thing are tuna and salmon if the canned bother you I often find them too salty to enjoy I have taken some and smoked it or dipped it in liquid smoke then cooked in a baking dish then loaded in to the dehydrator. I find doing this I can have that little bit of fish when I want without worry of spoilage (sucking on it and chewing it for a long time make it really satisfying for me) ....SOO doing this next week to try the fish again. Speaking of fish...since I perfected keto bread in my bakery this month......I think I might try making a tuna sandwich with avacado mayo....not had a tuna sandwich in over 5 years.....
    • I am a newly diagnosed celiac and am traveling abroad for the first time since starting the diet. I will be going to Greece in the spring. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for eating gluten free abroad or at airports? Thanks! 
    • Yeah I've wondered a bit if I'm not getting all the other B vitamins from food alone and if they'd do me well. Magnesium content in the keto vitals isn't a lot. I try to get some more through food but I doubt it's optimal. I might have to look into that stuff. Interesting about the meats. Unfortunately I need the fat, especially if I'm gonna continue trying this keto thing for awhile, give it a chance to work. I did know about the difference in omega content, but since starting this diet I've been supplementing with fish oil to offset the omega 6's. Hope you'll be able to eat meat again soon, even if in small amounts. So much this. Every day I want to get up and do anything, and can't and it sucks. I want to climb the walls, get away from myself... Ugh, this takes too long, and I'm too impatient. Yeah, looks like I have to cook everything. I figured I'd at least be able to eat raw baby spinach. I need SOMETHING I can just grab and eat, but it gives me the same slightly itchy mouth that fruit gives me. I've been allergic to fruit forever... Don't have this problem with my steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I already cook everything else I eat. (and it's all organic, real food) So annoying to have to spend half my day cooking, not that I have anything else I can do. But what do I do when (or if) I get healthy again and am like, out somewhere? Damn I miss potato chips. I'll tweak a few things here and there and keep trying.
