My boy is going to be in a book club this summer. He is used to not eating snacks at other homes but I really want to make it special for him and to also show people that behind our walls we (mostly the kids) are not deprived.

Now, we are also milk (including cheese/yogurt and all), soy, egg, peanut, almond (and some little stuff) free. In basic recipes, it is not that hard to sub. but obviously milk/egg desserts are out.

I've thought of homemade rice krispy treats, cupcakes...what are some other "treat" type things I could prepare??

Just made some fabulous caramel popcorn for a big group trip this weekend. Got asked for the recipe four times. You didn't mention butter in your milk/cheese/yogurt free. That's the only ingredient that I'm not sure if you use.

It's this recipe from allrecipes.com

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/caramel-popcorn/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=caramel%20popcorn&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Home%20Page

I used 2/3 cup butter instead of 1 cup and I used hot air popped corn to give a "drier/crispier" pop corn.

Don't know if you have a bagel that you like, but I make homemade bagel chips . . . slice the bagel into thin slices and brush with olive oil and sprinkle with onion and garlic powder and a little sea salt . . . or whatever floats your boat. Bake in the oven (400 deg?) until browning/crunchy.

Our son is currently Egg, Dairy (all forms), Gluten, Soy, Almond, and Oat free. Besides the homemade stuff, he also brings Enjoy life candy bars, and other Enjoy life bars and cookies. Currently we have homemade cupcakes with homemade icing that I made for him, so he gets to bring them. It makes the other kids jealous. :)

I like keeping the Enjoylife stuff around for these kinds of things because they are fast and easy. On days where we forget we do not have to panic about making something we can just grab a few and toss them in his bag.

How about jello? lots of fun jello creations to be made out there-rainbow jello to start with and coconut milk or coconut beverage(more neutral tasting) could be subbed in the creamy layers for the milk or condensed milk

fruit leathers-lots of "natural" kinds if you have concerns about fake colors etc in mainstream brands

fruit snack packets

these types of things would show people what "notmal" foods your kid can have

we've done "krispy treats too" with various cereals-chex type, coco krispy type, regular style crispies with the freeze dried berries in it

can your kids have sunflower seed "butter"? in place of nut butters?

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
