Need Help With A Snack.

Hiya,

I am going nuts eating only meat, vegetables and fruit. I am gluten, dairy, nut (including coconut) and corn free. Xanthan gum comes from corn so I can't have any of the packaged things. I can't have chips because they are fried in corn oil or they are cc with corn. I am not trying to complain, I am just starting to get D from all of the fruit that I eat. I can go through a whole watermelon by myself in 2 days. There has got to be something else for a snack besides fruit.

I cried at the grocery store today because I am having my monthly visitor and I just want some chocolate or a cookie or a chip or something! The lady in front of my had all of the makings for chocolate chip cookies in her cart. I seriously cried all the way home.

Any ideas?

Thanks

sou are h... Guar Gum is not made from corn so maybe you could make some goodies using Guar gum instead of xanthan gum... Also I don't have hte sites today but I do know that there are several cookbooks for completely alleregy free things. One may be Cybele ( don't remeber her last name) & perhaps check out Cooking For Isiah by Silvana .... Also there are many sites that have recipes for allergy free..

Check out these two places for ingredients.. Lucy's Cookies ( I think she is a doctor , maybe ! her things are very good, another is Home Free,I think they are gluten-free, peanut free, egg free,tree nut free, dairy free...

I think the more things we have reactions to the harder our journey becomes , plus more costly ....

It sounds like you are feeling food deprived... also thinkere is a site called Allergy Free. com perhaps you could find something on it as well...

hugs

Both of those companies use corn, Lucy's and Home Free. Bummer. It's in the vanilla and baking powder.

I'll check out the cookbook....thx!

Thanks for the links. I appreciate it.

Enjoy life doesn't work for me.

Q: Are your products corn free?

A: Enjoy Life products do not claim to be corn-free. Having said that, we want Enjoy Life customers to have as much information as possible regarding our ingredients. The powdered evaporated cane juice in 2 of our Boom Choco Boom bars (Dairy-Free Rice Milk Bar and Dairy-Free Rice Milk with Crispy Rice Bar) contain less than 1% corn starch as a processing aid. This product is labeled

If you want some potato chips, try Cape Cod chips?

Dedicated facility and made with canola oil, not corn or soybean oil.

What about seeds? They aren't nuts. Would have to check if they are cooked in corn oil. You might be able to get raw and toast them in the oven. We have done that with pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.

Do you like sunnut butter? On apples?

Hummus and dip carrots and cukes? Homemade salsa and dip celery or cukes or those jicama things cut into strips? Same with guacamole.

Popsicles? Could even make your own with juice you like or fresh lemons, sugar and water. Could mess around with the fresh fruits mushed and frozen into Popsicles. You could eat it out of a bowl but it doesn't seem as snacky as a Popsicle.

Do you need to avoid soy? There are some wheat-free,corn-free, dairy-free chocolates out there, but the ones I've found have soy.

Obviously focusing in chocolate here! I cannot imagine life without chocolate in it.

Are you okay with rice and flax? Perhaps you could make something like a rice krispy treat with enjoy life's crunchy flax cereal or crunchy rice cereal (used to be "Perky's" brand) using those corn-free marshmallows.a

Just for crunch, I love rice cakes or crackers, Crunchmaster makes wonderful tamari rice crackers and also lundberg makes good rice cakes which I like with home-made hummus.

What about these?

You could make them with Hemp seed, fox and/ or sun flower seeds, pumpkin seeds. Or a mix. Might have to experiment.

Edit:

"fox"? Spellcheck, really? Flax changed to fox? I guess Spell check has a point, fox would add a unique flavor and you probably aren't intolerant or allergic to fox meat! :)

I am going to do just that. I had to search the basement for my tupperware popsicle mold and found it. As soon as I make some lemonade, I am going to freeze some.

    • 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  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
