Ok, Need Some Suggestions Re Bread!

When I first started on this I thought I'd just aviod all bread-type products because it would be healthier anyway...but after about 6 weeks of that I can't stand it! I must have bread and an occational dessert! I used to bake all the time, so I figured I'd just mess around until I came up with some good recipes....Not So Easy! I did have success with gluten-free carrot cake, brownies, and pancakes. However yeast breads really don't work AT ALL! I tried Pizza crust and it was like eating tomato sauce and cheese on masionite. Yum :blink: My son (bless his little heart) claimed it was the best pizza he'd ever eaten but I attribute that to the fact that it's the *only* pizza he's eaten in over a month...plus I think he felt sorry for me. Anyway, we can't afford to buy a lot of gluten-free products (wow, they're so pricey!) so if we want baked goods I need to figure this out. Where can I go for recipes? How on earth do you get rice bread to rise? Mine actually *shrank* as it baked. I used a mixture of 1/3 brown rice, 1/3 white rice and 1/3 potato flour and tried to make the pizza as per usual other than that. Any quick tips for a novice?

Thanks in advance!

There are several good posts going right now, some with good recipes. Take your time and check out the information and mistakes that others have made. If you can, get a good cookbook. Bette Hagman is my favorite. I am placing the post address to a current discussion for you. Like I said, there are several. Look under the cooking and breads category. I can't remember right off the bat what we call it.

Oh yes, and be sure you check under the posts on bread machines. I got one really great recipe there. The recipe for that and some cinnamon rolls are at the link I added in the last message.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, my first try was a total disaster also. I have since learned that with gluten free bread, it is imperative that you use quick rise yeast. Also, apparently the yeast must be room temperature.

If you are looking for some good recipes, there is a lady named Mireille over in the delphiforums that has a vast array of recipes posted there. She owns a gluten-free restaurant, or something like that.....

Go here:

www.delphiforums.com

then on the left hand side, click on Health & Wellness. The first forum to come up is the celiac forum. It is an excellent resource for recipes.... and she posts alot to help all of us gluten-free baking challenged out!!!

Have a great day!

    • I would suggest a certified gluten free soy sauce, just to be safe.  Test that and if you react, you'll be able to rule out a gluten reaction from La Choy.  
    • I second cycling lady here, you should not go gluten free unless your doctor confirms you have celiac disease via the blood test and a biopsy. You need to be eating gluten for the testing to be accurate so a 30 day trial based on the gene is a REALLY bad idea, getting back on gluten for the testing is a nightmare once out of your system. Also going gluten free, what are you eating? If your eating just a bunch of gluten-free foods that are processed like the pre made breads, foods etc. your on the wrong path. Those are normally non enriched and more like junk food/comfort food. You need to eat a whole foods diet, of various greens, meats, nuts, seeds, (fruit if you can have it and sweet potatoes). etc. Doing this will boost your healing and you and introduce some of those processed foods later on sometimes. If you have celiac disease then your intestines are probably damaged and you will need to supplement some nutrients, we all have common ones like magnesium, iron, b-vitamins, folate, potassium, D etc. and you should talk to a good doctor about what your missing. The whole out of it things sounds like b-vitamins to me. Another point is going gluten free, you have to be careful for CC if your a celiac, after removing gluten re exposure to gluten makes your symptoms MUCH worse, and the tend to change and evolve in addition. Be sure to check the Newbie 101, your pretty much have to replace most of your cookware, condiments, etc. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Do you still consume gluten and/or dairy? If so, I highly recommend that you eliminate both entirely. That includes anything with the ingredients; whey powder, casein, "lactose free" can be misleading as well. I also recommend taking a good probiotic regularly.  http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2016/03/01/10-best-probiotics-for-depression-anxiety-gut-brain-axis-modification/  I use Garden of Life brand for Mood. I buy it in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods. I also recommend double doses of B vitamin for a stint. However, you should have a full work up done by a neurologist, if you haven't already. Assuming everything comes  back negative then I highly recommend trying these few things.  I hope you can find answers and start feeling healthy again.
    • I suggest researching Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or EOE.   http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681  Also, Benadryl crosses the blood brain barrier and there have been long-term complications.  Talk to your doctor about using  another antihistamine.  If your reactions have been anaphylactic, you should have an epi pen.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Welcome!   Yikes, first I would suggest that you consider a new doctor.  Your doctor gave you some pretty bad advice biased on your posting.   The celiac gene is common.  Some 30% or more of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  Are you sure it was not an antibodies test?  Telling you to go gluten free for a 30 day trial is another huge error.  Often they takes months to years for a celiac to recover.  A celiac is diagosed by blood tests and small intestinal biopsies obtained via an endoscopy.  There are times when an endoscopy is skipped because if financial reasons, too ill or long wait times.   Learn more at the University of Chicago's celiac website which is very informative and well-recognized.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
