Hi everyone,

I was recently diagnosed with celiac 3 weeks ago and also told by my doctor to completely avoid all dairy and soy for the next year or so until I can try reintroducing them again. The problem I'm having right now is that my cravings for the foods I used to eat before being diagnosed are getting stronger every day that I am on my new celiac diet. I tried looking through the supermarket in addition to the natural health food stores I have in my area (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Sunflower/Sprouts) and every gluten free product out there seems to still contain dairy and/or soy! I don't even have options for when I'm getting a craving to safely try to satisfy it nor have my boyfriend and I found any restaurants we can go on dates too. Everything has gotten so overwhelming since being diagnosed. As a side note, due to my new wheat/gluten/dairy/soy free diet I have been eating fruit when I get cravings, but I don't want to go overboard on sugar either since I already have a Candida overgrowth and am sugar sensitive. Does anyone know of any snack foods out there that are wheat/gluten/dairy/soy/sugar free? I'm sorry, I know that's a lot to ask for :(

My family and I have gotten into "Seasnax lately." You would maybe never believe we are still American. These are Seaweed, Olive oil, and sea salt. They are dried vegetables. One can also make kale chips with simalar ingredients. My daughters learned to eat them over cooked rice in Korea and each that went, brought some home. They are in the natural food stores here in MN.

I make carob bars with coconut oil, almond meal, coconut milk and carob. I put in a few drops of edible peppermint essential oil.

Healthy eating.

I'm gluten, oat, soy, dairy, peanut, corn flour, free..and low salicylate.

It makes snaking hard. I can eat some brands of potato chips, and my home made kale chips.

If corn doesn't bother you, plain Fritos are safe. Nuts and seeds like pumpkin or sunflower are good snacks, but be sure to look for cc free ones. Some brands of popcorn are safe.

Celery stuffed with peanut butter may work for you?

I am mostly dairy free and avoid processed soy. So, I feel your pain here. But, I snack all the time.

Air popped popcorn with salt or other seasoning (almost every night). Dried fruit with nuts (dried plums and (i think) dried apricots have no added sugar. Suzie's corn, quinoa, and sesame thin cakes with avocado or nut butter. Apples with nut butter. Cut up veggies with hummus, walnut spread, or nut butters. Homemade granola (with agave or maple syrup). Homemade chocolate truffels (walnuts, dates, coco, coconut). Chocomole!

Most nuts are ok to eat. You can get Food Should Taste Good brand chips that are gluten-free in stores. Mission brand corn tortillas are good as wraps with whatever filling you like. Snyders makes a gluten-free pretzal. Don't try searching for snack ideas on here or you will spend the next days or 2 reading all the hits! :D We do snack it seems. You can make peanut brittle in a microwave, lots of recipes on the web. There is also a gluten-free Halloween candy list or two floating around this site with lots of store bought candies. Oh, "Corn Thins" are good with peanut butter etc on them. You can try rice cakes also but I like the corn thins better myself.

Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.

Don't eat in restaurants

Eat only whole foods not processed foods.

Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.

Take probiotics.

Take gluten-free vitamins.

Take digestive enzymes.

Avoid dairy.

Avoid sugars and starchy foods.

Avoid alcohol.

I can have dairy but no gluten, soy, or corn. I snack on Sesmark rice crackers. (They happen to have no dairy either.) And they are REALLY REALLY good. I used to love them even before I went gluten-free. Kettle Brand Sea Salt potato chips are good. Planters nuts will always be gluten-free unless stated otherwise.

Do you have problems with them or is this just something your doctor tells all celiac patients? Our first opinion told us no gluten or dairy despite my dd having zero symptoms. While I understand that some have issues with it until they heal, my dd did not. The second opinion said to let her have dairy. Ignore this if you have issues but I dont like a one size fits all approach to any disease.

Thanks everyone for your help! I'm starting to feel better and getting used to the diet. I still have times where I really miss the old foods I used to eat but I'm not having the awful stomach cramps that I used to get when eating gluten/wheat/dairy/soy nor am I getting that horrible diarrhea that kept me on a leash to my bathroom. So I'm definitely seeing the benefits. I struggled a little in there but have been "clean" (for lack of a better word) for a full 7 days now! I'm starting to get my energy back too!

I tried a few gluten-free products like those from Enjoy Life (free of top 8 allergens I believe) and some Lundberg rice chips. Enjoy Life foods were really disappointing (I tried the crisp sugar cookies and the fruit bars) but the rice chips were good! I'm not much of a salty person though. I've always preferred the sweets but I'm slowly realizing that allergen free versions are just not the same as my old favorites. BUT, I keep reminding myself that my old favorites made me very very sick and definitely not worth going back too.

The only problem that still remains is finding restaurants that are allergen free. My boyfriend is still frustrated with this as am I. A lot of restaurants offer allergen free options but cross contamination is an issue and in these first few weeks I've found that I'm very sensitive to any sort of contamination, no matter how small.

Again, thank you everyone for responding! Celiac.com has helped me so much as I'm figuring this new lifestyle out.

Try Crunchmasters 7th ancient grain cracker. One is gluten-free dairy free and soy free. I am gluten-free, soy free, nut free and tomato free, so I understand. If you can eat nuts it would be geat dipped into peanut butter, I love it with humus. I also like Cape Cottage chips and some corn chips.

I actually enjoy going out to restaurants now - why? For the first year I tried to dine out - order everything perfectly - quiz the staff - researched every restaurant - etc. Eventually I had so many food intolerances along with severe cc reactions I was not able to eat out anywhere safely. Once there was no possibility to eat out without getting sick I started bringing my own - I was pleasantly surprised that I became happy doing so because it was no longer a full time job to find a safe restaurant - I could go anywhere my husband and friends wanted. At first you may feel odd bringing your own - but it will pass. I simply tell the wait staff that I have severe allergies and it is not possible for them to prepare safe food, order a nice glass of wine or special non-alcholic beverage and ask them to bring a plate or large bowl out for my food. I usually stick to a colorful salad with grilled chicken or shrimp - most times the wait staff or my friends will comment on how good my meal looks - I find it far more relaxing than trying to order something and ending up ill. Occasionally I run into someone that starts on the pitty party for me - I stop that cold with a "please don't feel bad for me, I am very happy to be healthy now and glad to be enjoying this time out and about".

So ordering gluten free is possible, but if you do find that you need to remain soy and dairy free as well it is no longer worth the battle - at least until you have been gluten, dairy, soy free for a long enough period of time that it becomes easier to have a successful meal out - bring your own and if you find something on the menu that you deem safe - order it. In the meantime - just enjoy being out.

IMHO :)

Me too on those restrictions plus corn and oats. When I go to the grocery store the only snacks I can find are in the health food aisle where I either get potato chips cooked in canola or safflower oil.

At my little natural food market I get Good Health Natural Foods brand Sea Salt Humbles which are baked Hummus chips.

And Mediterranean Snacks brand of Baked Lentil Chips (and the package has a good Hummus Dip recipe on the back which I make). If you see and want to try these be careful to get the Sea Salt variety of Humbles and the Sea Salt variety of Baked Lentil Chips. There are several different varieties of each of these and I have ended up grabbing the wrong one and having to give it to someone else here.

Have you seen this website - www.elanaspantry.com? All of her recipes are gluten, dairy, soy, and sugar free. Plus most are super easy.

GFinDC - like your post & agree with most of it - but I do still like my wine now & again. I tried to eat at a restaurant last Monday and today (Friday) I think I am almost recovered. We went there because we had a gift card & I ordered because the waitress said she was gluten-free and understood....of course she recommended the teriyaki chicken so I should have known (I had a curry dish). Pain...cramps...nausea...spastic stomach, headaches, joint pain, fatigue...long week.

I am SO tired of people who use gluten as a weight loss trick !

I just took my daughter over to a friend's house & picked up chinese for them...painful ! Smells so good...but essentially poisonous!!!! 99% of the time this celiac thing doesn't bother me- it's really a healthy diet & I love to cook from scratch...but restaurants, travel, social gatherings...suck ! I cling to my coffee & wine !! He he.

Anyway - back to the original question - I avoid most dairy (half & half in my coffee & lite cheddar here & there) and I have tried to eat tofu with bad results. No soy, little dairy - & fatty food doesn't agree with me either. Quite frankly, before my celiac issues 10+ years ago I had processed food & fatty food issues & lots of reflux anyway. A week long bad virus changed things and there went gluten...painful to figure that one out!!!

Since going gluten-free - no more reflux issues.

    • Hello and welcome I don't have celiac. I do have several symptoms in common with you and I do have a problem with gluten, so NCGS for want of a better term.  A celiac response to gluten involves the immune system so there certainly can be a delay between ingestion and the body producing the antibodies. That would correlate with your tongue aching progressively through the week. Some of the weirder symptoms of celiac occur because those antibodies that have identified gluten proteins as a problem then attack different parts of the body, maybe that's the more delayed reaction in your case. Last time I was glutened definitely I noticed some reaction in a few hours but it was a couple of days before I was certain. After effects can last for weeks or months even.  Wheat allergy is the one with the instant response, it's IGE mediated and so you can have an immediate surge in histamines and in extreme cases anaphylaptic reaction. NCGS is less well understood, some dispute it's existince or question if gluten is the cause. The symptoms however are similar to celiac as far as I know and that includes response time.  You've been through a miserable time but your still young and you need to decide whether you want to pursue a diagnosis or not. If you do, then it will require a gluten challenge of probably 6-12 weeks. See the links below for more details.  If you don't I suggest you go strictly gluten free, keep a food diary and see if the improvements you noted before continue. I think you've probably found your answer. Best of luck!   Further reading https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/
    • This is why many of us stick to our own "Trusted Brands" of things we know are safe, and only buy stuff with the offical certification for gluten free. NOTE also in the US they do not HAVE to tell you their facility also processes wheat on the label, just if the actual product contains it in the ingredients. But many will just to avoid legal mumbo jumbo if they somehow have CC issues. Saying the facility also contains/processes wheat is just them covering themselves if people get sick from it.
    • I make my own mini loafs of a simple almond,coconut,apple sauce blend for dense, bland bread gluten free, and have my pastor bless them. I then keep them in the freezer and bring a piece with me for communion.
    • I don't have milk in liquid form any more, so I switched to coconut flavoured milk (rice based) for cereal, really like it. Then I take coffee black which I've also adjusted to. For an occasional treat I'll have a soy latte, tastes a bit nutty but I'm used to it now and it's as much about the visual treat of sitting in a coffee shop with a big milky coffee anyway. The last time I had a real milk latte I got some huge spots a day or so later on my chest and that was the clearest signal that milk and my skin weren't a good mix. What I haven't done is stop eating products that have milk listed as an ingredient. If I do that I lose so many of the nice gluten-free replacements  biscuits ice cream etc. I know I could try and get dairy free, but it's expensive and difficult to find. So maybe I should try doing that and see how I go... It's funny, a few years ago I used to have a 'healthy'  breakfast of porridge, milk, with a big spoon full of wheat bran for fibre which I convinced myself I needed for digestion. I used to feel pleased with myself for having a good start to the day when I subsequently found it was the worst combination of foods I could possibly have devised. I think If I ate that right now I'd explode!
    • I and many others here have been there and sympathise! Keep on keepin' on, it won't be long now before you can start feeling better. In the meantime, if there's a cheesecake, pastry etc that you want to say goodbye to, now's the time...
