***Cream of Rice cereal (Its gluten-free...make it with more water or milk so its more liquidy)

***Applesauce

***Dole peaches (plastic jar... mash them up good and you can slurp them)

flagbabyds,

You want to also get some protein. If you get some plain whey protein or egg protein powder (make sure it is gluten-free) them you can mix it with the other pureed foods. You can also get the little jars of pureed meats from the babyfood section of the store.

And there are some brands of instant mashed potatoes that are gluten-free. Idahoan Instant Original and Barbara's Instant mashed potatoes are two that I know of. Of course fresh baked or boiled are probably healthier, either way they need to be mixed to a smooth runny consistency.

Any soft cooked food can be blended up into a shake like drink. I don't recommend blending rice. It comes out very sticky. I tried this with my husband when he had his tonsils out (at 36 years old!) and he couldn't stand it. And he is by no means a picky eater!

God bless,

Mariann :)

Flagbabyds,

Just saw this and thought I'd add grits to the list. They are very quick (can be made in the microwave) and you can do lots of things to them -- make them spicy and savory (salt, pepper, paprika, butter & Parmesan cheese if you can tolerate lactose) or sweet (maple syrup, cinnamon, applesauce, with milk or soymilk or rice milk) and it is very filling, so you do feel like you've eaten something substantial.

I'd also suggest you get hold of a few good soup cookbooks (many soups are gluten-free) and invest in a handheld blender, which is usually only about $25 or $30. It's really useful for pureeing soups and other things because you can do that right in the pot without having to pour it into a food processor or blender (very messy and time consuming). The handheld blender takes literally a couple of minutes and it makes soups so much better. You can get an enormous amount of nutrition from one soup and it'll taste good also.

Good luck -- it's good you're preparing ahead of time, it will make it a little bit easier to get through.

Zippyten,

Great ideas! :D I just picked up a new handheld blender at RiteAid for $14. I felt it was safer to use, since my husband uses our regular blender for his non-gluten-free foods all the time. I can make smoothies and soups and stuff.

My daughter is just starting the gluten-free/cf diet and will be having her tonsils out this summer. This topic is helping me to figure out what I am going to feel her as well.

Thanks everyone for the great ideas of what to eat. I am hoping my daughter will not notice the tofu in the smoothies, since I think that will be a good way to sneak in some protein.

God bless,

Mariann

I drinka ton of miso soup. All you do is put a couple tablespoons of miso (make sure it is gluten-free ) in a mug, and add water until you have a ratio that you like. Easy, salty, full of protein.

Is "Ensure" gluten-free? It wouldn't be the most delectable meal, but at least it would be nutritious. Obviously, soups and stuff, but I don't have any suggestions in that category...I've never had too much of that stuff

    • 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/
