A Couple Of Days Of Disappointments

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I went to the grocery store a couple of days ago, and found tortillas by TIFCO that appeared to be gluten-free. (They make the tortilla chips that I love!) So I eagerly bought them. When I went to eat one .... I couldn't finish it. It was so BAD-tasting that I couldn't bring myself to eat it.

*sigh*

This morning, I tried Bob's Red Mill buckwheat hot cereal, as a former oatmeal-lover who was missing hot cereal. So very, very bad. I couldn't finish it. Drowning it in milk and brown sugar did not disguise the taste at all.

So I'm very sad. I'm not sure which is worse - probably the buckwheat, as it cost more.

Does anyone know of a different oatmeal-replacement? Another grain, perhaps, with a less-strong flavour? If I dump anymore brown sugar on this cereal it's not longer going to be a "healthy choice." Arg!

Grits or polenta and I have also found cream of rice.

Bob's Mighty Tasty Hot cereal is a blend of grains and not strong tasting IMO. The corn and sorghum in it are mild and sweet. There are instant certified gluten-free oats packets available.

I prefer cream of rice or grits. I also have quinoa flakes that are pretty good. I don't love the texture but the taste is ok. You could try gluten free oats and see how well you tolerate them.

I go with Pocono Cream of Buckwheat, it has a creamy texture and very mild flavor compared with even their buckwheat 'kasha' which is more chunky and has a stronger flavor. Cream of Rice is okay also.

I second Pocono Cream of Buckwheat. It's so good with milk and fresh blueberries or strawberries. I eat this about two times a week :)

Are you unable to tolerate oats? I thought I couldn't eat them until I learned about all the wheat in regular oatmeal and tried the Bob's Red Mill gluten-free oats. I also eat cream of rice and grits.

I like Bob's Mighty Tasty hot cereal too - just over a cup of boiling water, stir in 1/4 cup of the stuff & simmer for 5 minutes, stir in an egg until it's cooked & add dried cranberries & walnuts....mmmm..... :D

I like Arrowhead Mills Organic Rice & Shine. It's a brown rice hot cereal. I usually add golden raisins to it. :)

I actually don't know about oats. I haven't had them since going gluten-free 7 months ago. I've heard about the gluten-free ones but I haven't seen them. The local stores carry Bob's Red Mill products (that's where I got the buckwheat) but I don't know if they don't carry the gluten-free oats or I just haven't seen them. I'll take another look.

Thanks to everyone for their ideas. I certainly miss hot cereal, and would love to find one that didn't taste like tree bark. (Yes, I do eat a lot of tree bark, thanks for asking ... :P)

Considering what this nasty buckwheat cost me, I'm still going to have to use it up though. Does it have any other uses? Can I used it as a rice side dish and load it with spices? Can I put it in soup? If I make it for breakfast and smother it in jam, can I still feel good about it being "healthy" ???!!

Does anyone know where you can find Rice and Shine??? I have heard great things and I too miss my morning oatmeal. I live in Southern Ontario, but do visit the States occassionally. Also, does anyone know if they cell Rice Chex in Canada?

Thanks!

    • I agree 100% but in that disclaimer they said in a restaurant setting. They sell canned chili in the local stores so I would think that I should be okay. I've tried to make my own chili but the problem is that I suck. I'm a horrible cook. Gordon Ramsey would probably slap me in the face. Cincinnati style chili is different from most chili out there too. There is chocolate, cinnamon, and some other ingredients that you won't find in other chili recipes out there. It's different and if you screw it up, not good. Give it a try. Like I said, if you make it right, the best you've ever had.  
    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc
