Discovering New Gluten Free Foods

13 posts in this topic

Celiac is is far cry from anything to celebrate but the ~Scavenger~hunt for Gluten Free foods does have the element of thrill to it when I make a new discovery of allowed foodage. Lays stackers and all the possibilities with Gluten-Free Betty Crocker mixes [brownies,choc chip cookies,peanut butter brownies made from cookie mix, carrot cake & pineapple upside down cakes made from yellow mix], does give me a tiny joy of sorts.

Also tried Udi`s bread toasted with orange marlalade yum, and dug around internet and found site with great recipes: better than any off-the-shelf-glute-free Flour is this "Master Mix Flour" [ 1 cup tapioca flour & 2 C. potato starch or potato flour & 6 Cups white or brown rice flour+Mix and store airtight rubbermade. Also tip for Croutons=with Cean new kitchen scissors cut Gluten free bread into tiny cubes and cover with own mix olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder,, parsley salt pepper on cookie sheet and bake low slow like you would party mix. And my fave is a gluten free Cream Soup Base [1 tsp chicken flavor boullion,2T cornstarch, 1 Cup Milk or rice/coconut/almond Milk, 2 Tb. butter, 1/2 tsp salt, blend and if want as soup add 1 cupwater, & your choice diced cooked chicken , celery, diced mushrroms, drained canned tiny shrimp, and there you have several varieties of Cream Soups for all you campbell sauce recipes over meats and casseroles. I will not Starve going Gluten Free and on the other hand I would live on green beans if that`s what it takes to get better from hideous celiac disease. Terri

Wow! Great ideas! You know, you can also make chex mix gluten-free... Just omit wheat chex and increase rice and corn chex to offset. Use gluten-free worcestershire sauce, Glutino or Snyders gluten-free pretzels, and rice cracker bits instead of bagel bites. Instead of "season salt", I use an organic herb blend called Herby (Frontier Organics, gluten-free). Other than these substitutions, just follow the original chex party mix recipe. It's awesome! And you can serve it at parties and no one's the wiser!

I love finding great gluten-free foods, too! But even more, I love finding ones that totally make a lie out of "you poor thing! That's such a restrictive diet! You have to give up so much!" ... Yeah, right! The only things I've given up are diarrhea, gas, bloating, fatigue, nausea, mood swings.... Ha ha ha!!! :D

I know, it's kind of fun to find and try new stuff!!

Speaking of Chex mix, Gltuen- Freely just posted a link to this recipe on their Facebook page: http://firebear.wordpress.com/2010/03/31/gluten-free-white-trash/

It looks sooo good! you could probably use Honey Nut and/ or Cinnamon Chex in place of the Rice or Corn Chex :). Or, of course, there's 'Muddy Buddies' (I'd have to look up the recipe for that one)

(just looked at my boxes of Chex (I got a bunch on sale last week), and some of the boxes have the recipe for Muddy Buddies printed on the side, so here goes)

Muddy Buddies

Prep Time: 15 mins

Start to finish: 15 mins

9 cups Rice, Corn or Chocoalte Chex (or Combination)

1 cup semi- sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup margarine

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.

2. in 1- qt microwaveable bowl, microwave choclate chips, peanut butter & butter uncovered on high, 1 minute, stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer, or until mixture can be stirred smooth. stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2- gallon reseable food- storage plastic bag.

3. Addpowdered sugar. seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator [assuming it lasts long enough to get to make it into the refrigerator! :rolleyes::P:D:lol::ph34r::o ]

18 servings (1/2 cup each)

Schar crackers! I love them. They are a bit brittle but taste wonderful. I like Pamela's chocolate chip cookies, too.

Daiya brand is the favorite type of Gluten-free Casein-free cheese for most everyone I know. It's soy free too, which Tofutti isn't. It's what places like Mellow Mushroom use commercially when they tout vegan cheese options.

Whenever a recipe calls for bread crumbs I use crushed up Rice Works Gourmet Brown Rice Crisps. I find them at CostCo they are in a blue bag.

I just crush them up and use the crumbs for things like meatloaf, chicken fried steak, stuffed mushrooms, chicken parmesan, meatballs, etc.

They are good alone so you don't need to add much salt, just some pepper or herbs if you want.

I recently discovered "Simplebites Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies" from Pamela's Products at the local Fry's supermarket. They're not cheap, but man, are they delicious! :)

I love finding new gluten free things especially at a normal grocery store. Although, I still have to be careful about that because a couple of times grocery stores I've been to put their gluten free products next to the organic products and I have grabbed those instead of the gluten free ones. But it does seem that more and more grocery stores are carrying gluten free products which is great.

    • I can tell you that the head pressure you are speaking about is one of the symptoms I am experiencing now.  And fogginess and dizziness.  I'm going to go as long as I can with my challenge. Im hoping the new GI I'm going to see will work with me. I would like him to do blood work every month to see if levels are changing.  There were so many problems with my daughter's challenge and testing. U of C at the time only recommended a 6 week challenge. And only tTG IgA and total IgA were run. Not a full panel. Well after the biopsy and when insurance wouldn't give us another referral we were told that there was a more extensive panel. By then she was gluten free and we were not going back.  
    • People are able to find a very old topic and add to it (bumping it up to current).  We need to remember to check the dates and realize that these people from 10 years ago may not respond.  Also, remember that product info, ma be even medical info, can change in that amount of time.
    • When I was changing doctors due to insurance issues, I got one doc who I told I had celiac, and had been gluten-free for 2 years. He ordered a blood test and said I DID NOT have celiac cause the blood test came back negative....I looked at him like it was crazy, told him course your not going to detect the antibodies in test if I am not eating it. Told him to go back to med school and never went back. Similar experience with another doctor around that time....funny memory glad I found one that knows about the disease to some extent.
    • ÖThe potential celiac or  NCGS  diagnosis is given to me by the Celiac researchEr.  I do not think it's official until after we meet again.  actually I have not heard of that doctors work. I will look it up and see if I can listen to an interview. Thanks for sharing.  some of the symptoms that I continue to have Had on a strict gluten-free diet or similar to what I have now  and some of them disappeared. Of course During that time I was thrown on Xanax and some Protonix even though I don't actually have acid reflux. So there may have been some symptoms that were caused by those medications but I've been off Of Them for months now.  I guess headed pressure would be one of the more prominent symptoms  that I still had on a gluten-free diet although it's much much worse recently well I'm gluten.  it was almost like I can feel a strange sensation in my gut and the head at the same time but it's nothing like what you would think it wasn't cramping it wasn't... I don't know how to describe it. it does not feel anything like sinuses it's a really strange feeling like my brain Is inflamed Or being squeezed.  When I first started getting it it scared the living crap out of me because I thought I was going to end up passing out. I would be afraid to drive alone with my young son. Now admittedly I was diagnosed with inflammation of the small intestine in late August and was gluten free throughout the fall but started eating it again in late December. So I may not have given myself a tremendous amount of time to heal from the August duodenitis.   Currently I have pain in the right rib cage area,  I also get a tremendous amount of pressure in that area mostly when I'm sitting. Kind of like when us pregnant women had a baby's foot stuck up in that area.  I get nausea on and off, some shortness of breath, dizzy,  when my brain gets that  pressure my eyes often feel it as well, and I get some transient numbness and tingling in my hands and oddly in my face.  last summer I had Random episodes of blood pressure drops as well. I would start to really not feel well and noticed that eating actually helped those episodes. I was exercising a lot At the time but ate constantly  and was maintaining my weight. One doctor theorized it might be my blood sugar dropping so I bought a monitor but I never caught that. The only thing that I did catch was when I bought the blood pressure monitor and started taking my blood pressure when these episodes were happening.   for the most part I had pretty good health up until about a year-and-a-half ago and a very strange six months or so about 13 years ago where a lot of neurological stuff happened as well. I had vertigo, visual disturbances, eye floaters, muscles twitching, ants crawling sensation on my scull, some really strange stuff. It lasted about 6 months and over time it just went away.  except for the eye floaters, they stuck around. I'm not particularly concerned about them it's just that they were not there one day and I had some visual disturbances and Bam there they were and they never went away. I have a half-sister with MS but we ruled it out for me at that time and we also ruled it out last summer as well.   I did the whole 12-week thing that they're suggesting for your daughter. We figured the six weeks wasn't long enough.  For the most part other than a few weird things I honestly didn't get strange symptoms until the end of the six weeks so 12 weeks made sense. I think I actually ended up doing 10 weeks before the biopsy This time. Nothing but the increase in IELs.  I know they only biopsy the duodenum and I wonder sometimes if it's not just lower down. But with the negative blood work except for that one random test I don't know if it's really worth pursuing any more testing at this point. I'm so tired.  I know my brother is seronegative but that's pretty rare although I have no idea whether or not they've ever done a study on if that happens to be familial.  I also would really like to know if people who test positive for TTG 6 have any gut damaged. Because if that's the case perhaps there is no seronegative celiac disease  Have you read Dr. Fasano's work?  he writes back both Celiac and ncgs.  How long are you doing your challenge for again?  I know you may be anxious for answers as well but my suggestion just from personal experience would be to go as long as you can. 
    • I should qualify that I'm actually consuming the equivalent of 1-3 slices of bread in the form of vital wheat gluten. Sometimes I have bread, if I'm eating out. But I don't really want all of the carbs and I want to demonstrate that it actually IS the gluten causing the problems and not a Fodmap issue.  My reaction to bread and my reaction to the gluten are the same.  I'm actually shocked at how quickly things have changed. My hair is starting to thin again (boo hoo 😩), and my stools are completely different and it's only been about two weeks. The headache and dizziness and nausea are the worst.  Ennis, you are right. You would think that all of these symptoms would show on blood work. Grrr. I'm hoping that the GI I'm seeing on June 7th will run a preliminary full celiac panel.  It will only be 4 weeks by then.  Will it show something?  My sister has her PhD in immunology and I remember her saying how difficult research in immunology is because you need clearly high antibodies to demonstrate anything.
