Hi there I am looking for the names of some good gluten free/dairy free cookbooks. I want ones that are more geared towards dinner and lunch ideas and recipes. I have an almost three year old who is suspected Celiac, is getting much better since gluten free, but I am running out of ideas for meals especially because dairy really bothers him too. If anyone can give me the names of some good cookbooks I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Mya

Carol Fenster's "Gluten-free Quick and Easy" lists substitutes for ingredients to make the recipe Dairy-free. My son(11) likes the sorghum flour blend(that she uses) in baked goods. We use the pancake mix in the book, which adds convenience to my cooking for him. I don't know that all the recipes are palatable for a three year old, but three year olds differ in their palates. Anyway, you might want to check out her books and there are several. Are there specific type of products or recipes that you are looking for? Categories? snacks? breakfasts? etc. ? Maybe listing some would help us provide you with more recipes or sources. What kind of dishes or ingredients does you kiddo like? Many recipes can be adjusted to dairy-free with simple substitutes. Earthbalance Spread, tofu based "cheeses", coconut milk, almond or rice milk. Not all brands of these substitutes are gluten-free but there are many options out there. There are many, many blogs by moms with kids who are gluten-free/casein-free that are full of recipes.

We cook heaps of Indian & Sri Lankan, Balinese, Thai and Vietnamese, Middle Eastern etc meals. A number of the recipes are naturally gluten & dairy free and also very child friendly. Have a look via google you will be amazed.

We also cow dairy, gluten, yeast, preservative free etc in our house. I tend to replace dairy in recipes with stock, nut milk, coconut milk or pear juice depending on the recipe. I

I;m new to this and need help! I love to cook but the products in the co op or whole foods are so expensive and want to buy rice flour and such in bulk from the bins in the co op is that a bad idea? and what info can anyone give me because i am having a hard time finding these flours in the gluten-free sections they just have gluten-free flour and my cook book i bought calls for things separately

You're going to have to spend some money, unfortunately, for some of these flours but if you shop around you might be able to find them cheaper in some places than others. No, don't buy from bulk bins because someone could have used the wheat flour scoop in the rice flour which would make it no longer gluten-free. Rice flour can be found cheapest at Asian grocery stores. Some things are cheap on Am__azon if you can get the shipping price down. Many stores are now carrying Bob's Red Mill products, but the price varies. In many cases you could probably total up all the cups of different flours in a recipe and replace it with a premade gluten-free flour mix - just check to see whether you need to add xanthan gum (that's expensive but a little goes a long way and you will need it).

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
