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. :(

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.

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:

    • Hi! I was officially diagnosed a couple of months ago now but I have been gluten free for about 4 months since my endoscopy. However, in the last month I have noticed some worrying post diagnosis and treatment symptoms. My appetite has shrunk enormously. I used to be able to eat bowls and bowls of food and still be hungry, I could consume food even when full and I was constantly snacking. I understand over eating is a big part of celiac disease before going on a gluten free diet but food is such a huge part of my lifestyle. This last month I feel as though I have lost myself a bit as huge parts of my character like my love for food, huge appetite and my non fussy nature have all been turned upside down. I could easily not eat any snacks in a day now and not have to have all my meals. I thought I might have lost weight so I weighed myself on the same scales I did a couple of months ago. I am a young tall girl and was 10 stone for the last year at least. In the last few weeks I have lost half a stone which is 7 pounds and am now 9.5 stone. This is not intentional and I did not aim or want this to happen so I am concerned about any continued lack of appetite and weight loss in relation to my health. Therefore, I am going to weigh myself each week and make sure I am eating all three meals. If it continues I'll visit the doctor. Also, I am noticing fatigue still which was a huge part of my pre diagnosis symptoms. I get to a certain point in the afternoon where I feel like I need to go home and rest because I can no longer continue. I have no stamina and it is restricting my freedom, which I feel has already been taken from me as a result of this diagnosis that came at a frustrating point in my life which was a huge nuisance. Finally, I am also finding it a bit of a struggle to get my head around the whole thing still and to understand what it means for me and my life. I am very worried and scared that it will impact me not just physically but mentally and socially and it scares me. I guess this was more me getting all this off my chest and into the open, if anyone has any advice or feedback I will be hugely grateful.
    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis?
