I am really missing pizza, after a few years of no dairy and no tomatoes. I could probably manage to make and allergen-free crust but what to put on it? All the cheese alternatives are out due to other allergens-soy and tapioca. No nightshades so no red pepper sauce. No matter what it would be more of a foccacia than a pizza. I could make an olive an rosemary foccacia but just not the same without a gooey or saucy element. Some kind of dipping sauce for my foccacia? maybe a balsamic and oil might be ok but still not pizza.

Grilled cheese. Okay, so sure I can get a knife, fight with a frozen loaf of Udi's for 5 minutes trying to pry 2 slices off, then defrost it, then slap together a sandwich. But frankly, it just isn't the same.

I totally get the Pop Tarts thing. My husband walked in with a box of some new tropical flavored ones about a week ago. "Oh, you wouldn't have liked them anyway." Really? Hi, have we met? Tropical fruit? omg yes please! I was tempted to beat him senseless with the box.

Had to really laugh out loud at the Udi's comment. Did this just the other day, I thought, let me grab a piece of toast on my way out, opened the bag could not get a single slice, put it back in the freezer and grabbed a rice cake.

And I applaud your restraint with not beating your husband senseless :)

Ditto on the frozen bread ordeal. I actually had to get stitches in my thumb one Thanksgiving from trying to separate the slices. All I wanted was to make some breadcrumbs!

I think the thing I miss the most is perogies!

I've made a perogi casserole which is mashed potatoes layered with cheese and lasagna noodles which is totally yummy...but not exactly the same...

I tried making my own perogies also...but the dough is pretty hard to work with to get them to stay together...:S

Good news! Simona posted a pierogis recipe in the recipe section! Check it out:

You know, guys....I read through this whole thread (and felt a little bit sad, truth be told) but I also realized there is almost always a "plan B" for most of these foods and ways to make them taste good.

I have to say that I completely agree with meatball man's statement--he said he misses the convenience of eating whatever he wants, wherever he wants. That's what I miss, too. It is hard for a major foodie (as I once once)to give up tasting everything from the simple to the exotic with reckless abandon and then coming home to recreate it. I miss the spontaneity of just getting in the car and eating at cozy diners on back country roads while we are out taking photographs. We need a chain of "gluten free eateries" to spring up across the country and we'll all be golden. B)

That's it. That's what I miss the most. :(

Just wondering....um, where is the original poster?

Chef??

Are you coming back? You have not been back since this first post.

These sweet people have poured their hearts out telling you what they miss.

Hello?? :blink:

He hasn't been back since Oct. This forum doesn't allow advertising in posts so perhaps there is no point for him to come back and try to sell us a book or something else.

Seitan. I can make/find gluten free versions of anything else. But seitan is basically pure gluten :(

That's OK. We can talk to each other. Maybe someone will see what we miss and have a recipe for us. Like the pirogies the other day.

I miss...homebaked bread with a thick slice of sharp cheddar cheese. This was my total comfort food/dish.

The first thing that comes to mind is pizza, I really loved bagel bites and seriously ate those like every day. Also beef jerky, I haven't been able to find a gluten free beef jerky, not sure if there are any or not but that's a bummer.

I started another tread with a similar question not knowing that this one existed click here to visit mine if you like though I will continue to check this thread to as it has a large number of ideas on it already as well.

Pizza, pizza, pizza!! I was missing it before (good, greasy, NY style pizza), but now that I am mostly grain free/sugar free as well, I miss all things carbohydrate. Even the gluten-free alternatives!! Making mac n' cheese with quinoa pasta was one of my treat foods - now I can't have that. For awhile, I was only allowing myself carbs a couple times per week - but that's a slippery slope. Once you start to eat them, you can't stop. Why do our bodies crave things that aren't good for us? Why can't I be an asparagus addict or something? Hopefully once I get my latest issues in check, I can have a heart to heart with my willpower and allow myself the occasional carbohydrate treat.

Anything made with puff-pastry

I drooled, but I also cried. And I wondered why he asked us to spill our guts like that (just to be cruel? :o ) gee, I hope not!

But as Karen pointed out, by reading through it, I could point someone to a recipe on here that she could use because she missed pierogies.

And maybe others will see something they can link to as well.

So, it has a purpose after all. :)

You can make Nutella:

I believe Nutella is gluten-free, anyway.

You can also make ravioli. A few of us here make our own pasta and love it! That way you can fill the ravioli with whatever you like. :P

Nutella is most definitely gluten free! And there are many donut recipes out there.

Why do our bodies crave things that aren't good for us? Why can't I be an asparagus addict or something?

I hear that. <_<

Since freshly made squishy french bread and ANY cheese are my top two favorite food groups--I find gluten-free and dairy free living to be the ultimate cosmic "screw you" :lol:

I mean, if only celiac were caused by something like fried livers or snails or fava beans for example, I would be the happiest celiac on the planet. :lol:

    • 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.
