I'm 14. I've been a semi-vegetarian since I was 12 (my mom forces me to eat fish) When I was 13 I found out I was gluten intolerant (non celiac).

If Thats bad enough, I just found out I was semi allergic to corn and dairy. I can eat yogurt and frozen yogurt. Can't tolerate ice cream or chocolate. I can tolerate hard cheese but not any others.

What am I supposed to eat???? Waah help me. Recipes? Suggestions?

Your dairy intolerance sounds like lactose intolerance. Hard cheese ls low lactose, and yogurt is lower than ice cream because the bacteria break down some of the lactose. Try some Lactaid next time you have ice cream, milk or other fresh dairy.

A lot of people find they have to re-evaluate their decision to be vegetarian if they have multiple food intolerances like you do. It sounds like you can have nuts, eggs, and beans so maybe there are enough sources of protein. Lentils and rice are always good, or split pea soup with chunks of carrot and potato. Have eggs and hash browns for breakfast. You should be able to make corn-free/gluten-free bread for peanut butter sandwiches too.

If you are open to eating more meat, I would get some books from the library about the Paleo Diet. It is grain free and dairy free - but sort of centers on meat (along with vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc.)

There is a lot you can eat but much of it you will have to cook. A rice cooker is helpful. You can make rice in the bottom and they will have a steamer basket you can load with things like Chi-Chi (garbanzo beans) or any other kind of drained and rinsed bean, veggies, fish or shrimp etc. Most will come with a lot of recipes. If you make a good quantity it the leftovers would be good for lunch or dinner another day.

You should still be able to find some gluten free breads and crackers that you can have. There are a wide variety of nut butters and jellies you can try.

Some of the Thai kitchen products should also be suitable. Just read the labels. They can be found in the Oriental section of many grocery stores. I like the real thin rice noodles and often have those with veggies for supper. I use frozen veggies and put them in the water and when the water boils add the noodles. They cook really fast and then can be drained and buttered. (Butter is very low in both lactose and casien so even though it is dairy it may be tolerated.) The single serve Pacific Foods gluten free broths are also good to use. You just eat as a soup without draining.

The important thing when you are not eating meat is to make sure you are getting complete protein when you eat. Like eating beans along with rice for example. Your body needs ample protein to heal as quickly as possible.

Do check out the recipe section. We have vegetarians on the board that may be able to give you some good recipes. Also check out your local libary for cookbooks or even local thrift stores.

I like the old cookbooks in thrift stores because they give 'from scratch' recipes. Rather than saying to add a can of soup or a sauce they tell you how to make it. Cooking that way can be a lot of fun.

Do also look for Enjoy Life chocolate chips. They are allergan free and not bad at all. Great for adding to peanut butter cookies. In case you haven't got the recipe for flourless nut butter cookies it is really simple.

1 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1 cup sugar

about 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Mix ingredients. Line a cookie sheet with foil if desired. Form into balls and put on cookie sheet. Press a crosshatch pattern on the cookie with a lightly greased fork.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the cookie. I start to check at 5 minutes and when the cookies are golden brown around the outside edges I pull them out. Let the cool for 5 minutes before taking off tin foil sheet.

I actually just ate this for supper! Rice with stirfried veggies, shrimp and chicken, So yummy! You could easily leave out the chicken and it would be just as good.

I've also made the peanut butter cookies and they are to die for, but with chocolate chips that's a whole new level! Haha I have to try it! My brother just loves them, I'll have to make some and send them his way....cause I'll eat them all if I don't! Great suggestions, I love it when others give suggestions. Even though I've been doing this a while it's so nice to hear others ideas!

I just remembered we had a thread on gluten-free vegetarian ideas. You might try adding a post to see if you can revive the thread again. You're definitely not the only vegetarian on the board! Here's the link. :)

My best friend was gluten free/vegetarian for a while. There's a great cookbook out called The Gluten Free Vegan, by Susan O'Brien, which, while you may not be vegan, has great recipes than can easily be modified to simply vegetarian. But the others are right....you'll definitely have to cook. I know Amy's has some frozen vegetarian/gluten free burritos, but some people can't tolerate Amy's, though I haven't had a problem. They also have gluten free pizzas.

EDIT: and also, part of the reason my best friend started eating meat again was because she didn't get enough protein, as she had nut and tyramine intolerances. I was actually vegetarian when I went gluten free the first time. It's a really great diet, but sometimes it just doesn't work for your health. I know a lot of my friends who have moral issues with commercial meats stick with locally raised/pasture raised meats. I'm not trying to convince you to do anything or hate on your vegetarian diet, but simply offering alternatives if it gets too hard to cook/shop for the foods you need.

    • I have neuropathy. Mine is worse with cold. My hands and toes get so bad I cry. I don't know what to do to make it better but just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I hate feeling alone with this disease.
    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
    • Do EoE and celiac disease generally come in tandem?  Does having one necessarily mean having the other? Had an EGD today expecting to have an entirely different outcome.  A short history: Lap Band placed 10 yrs ago with a weight loss of 173-ish lbs. Am a 47 y/o F experiencing uncontrolled vomiting, several times a day, and abnormal, unwanted continued weight loss. Too thin IMO, at 133. Experience random and lengthy bouts of burning (scalding,  really)  mouth syndrome (which I believe is a diagnosis recognized only by those experiencing it, and has not an official diagnosis of anything... yet). At the urging of my children and my parents alike, all of whom see me wasting away before their very eyes, and concerned for my well-being (if not my life),  I began looking for answers. Assuming my answer would sound something like this... "let's remove your lap band immediately". Problem solved.  Not so.  Lap and in perfect condition and placement, and not the cause of any restriction whatsoever, as all fluid was removed 3 yrs ago. Food from over 12 hours previously ingested was still hanging out in the lower portion of my esophagus.  Dr. susoects a high concentration of eosinophils and EoE and/or celiac disease is also suspected.  4 samples have been sent for biopsy.  I knew nothing of either of these two diseases until 2 hours ago, and I am, at best, confused.  Lots of info to digest. Should I begin eliminating wheat, dairy, eggs... Etc. prior to biopsy results? Or wait for Dr. orders? History of Grave's (mom), and Hashimoto's (sister). I've had asthma and chronic bronchitis and pneumonia since childhood. Any  and all info/help/suggestions are more than welcome. Also, feel free to let me know if I'm way off base and prematurely/overly concerned.  I'd be ok with that too, as I tend to overthink things.    Thanks! 
    • Thanks desirun. I have takenhim off gluten and he has improved out of sight. Only times he hasbeen sick since was when he ate something with gluten. His 14 yr old brother has just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and now coeliac screen has come back positive for him as well. Ttg was 745. normal is anything under 20.  Waiting on gene test for him before scheduling biopsy. Makes it more likely that my younger son does have coeliac now I think. Will also be getting my daughter tested asap.
