I am horrible about having at least one night where I have no idea what we are eating for dinner. Those nights the hubby stops by publix because their rotisserie chicken is gluten-free and in a dedicated oven. What do you guys do? I could use last minute ideas with kids in sports!

I keep a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer. I put a little olive oil and seasoning on them and either make them on the grill or George foreman. Usually I serve with rice pilaf. I also try to keep chicken tenderloins in the freezer because you can cook them with thawing. Omelets for dinner are also a quick meal when crunched for time.

I keep some good frozen shrimp in the freezer. That way all you need is an avocado to make a shrimp-stuffed avocado on a bed of salad, and take a baguette of Against The Grain out of the freezer (I like it toasted - either as bruschetta or just the little toasts hot with butter). Drool.....

Nearly all of my previous go-to meals are now out of bounds :(

My go to is actually to send my husband to Costco for a chicken. Hahaha! In a true emergency where neither of us want to leave the house I'll usually just throw together some pasta, sauce and frozen meatballs. I use the Farmrich ones which are gluten free because I'm far too lazy to make my own.

Nachos (if I have chips) or quesadillas (always have corn tortillas and refried beans and cheese).

Bean patties - mash one can drained/rinsed beans, add some bread crumbs, an egg, and seasoning. Shape into patties and pan fry. I like it b/c I typically have all the ingredients here. Also chicken curry soup - I keep a chicken breast in the freezer and the other stuff in the pantry.

My go-to easy meal is breakfast for supper. Bacon, eggs or an omelet...or a bowl of cereal.

I'd have to say breakfast for supper too. I make pancakes with either bacon or sausage. I always have Gluten Free Pantry Pancake mIx in the pantry.

Since breakfast is already used.... I would say spagetti (corn noodles are my favorite). I too frequently get into a dinner pinch, so when I make my meat sauce I double it and freeze half. That way next time I can just cook the noodles and thaw the sauce. I do the same thing with Sloppy Joe meat.

I like to peel and dice a whole bag of potatoes and then I have them ready for homefries all week. But for when I have absolutely nothing planned- depends how much time I have. If I'm short on time it's sunnyside eggs with toast, if I have more time probably pasta with meat sauce or chicken sausage.

tacos -

I always keep shells, tortilla chips and salsa in the pantry

we normally have shredded cheese and usually lettuce in the fridge

Whenever I cook taco meat I make double and freeze the other half in a plastic baggie. Then I just thaw and heat - in the microwave if in a hurry.

Another thing I like to do is a skillet dinner. Cook a chopped onion in olive oil till soft and add diced potatoes. When they are almost done, add chopped leftover meat, breakfast sausage, whatever you have on hand or need to use up, and a chopped apple... Let that all brown together for a few minutes. You can top with shredded cheddar right before serving, if you like.

With this, I usually just make frozen veggies in the microwave. Mashed winter squash goes really well with it.

    • So I've been gluten free for 6 months. I gave it up the day of my endoscopy and never looked back. I was a fairly silent Celiac. My blood work was always normal (never anemic, malnourished), I didn't have all the horrible symptoms that others do. I think I caught it early and that those things were definitely coming. Since going gluten-free I notice that my belly is better. I still have days where it's not great, but in the last month I've noticed that it's consistently pretty good. I don't hardly ever get stomach aches. I've lost 16 lbs and I'm never bloated. Those things are good. But, aside from that, I don't feel much different than I did before. I'm still tired a lot. But I have two kids under 4 and I run a non-profit. I have horrible anxiety and that's only increased since finding out about my Celiac (it's health anxiety and it freaked me out big time that I have an AI disorder). I feel like my complexion looks the same (never had an issue with that).  I just read stories on here that talk about how the brain fog lifted quickly, or how people don't feel tired anymore, etc. I'm still a zombie sometimes. Has anyone else has this experience? Maybe my body was doing such a good job compensating for my Celiac that I wasn't really very symptomatic to begin with - and that the tiredness I feel isn't due to gluten.  Oh, FYI, I had a full thyroid panel done in December and it was all normal. 
    • Your daughter could have non celiac gluten sensitivity. That would correspond to negative celiac tests coupled with positive reaction to the gluten free diet. Whilst there are similarities to celiac presentation it appears that neuro symptoms are more common in ncgs patients.  That seems to be the case for me anyway!  The condition is as yet poorly understood but there is progress being made, check out a topic I just started on the pre diagnosis thread with some info and links.  The remarks by umberto Volta in particular are just about the best summation I've yet seen on where the research is at.  I will post a link later.
    • The gi may be able to see some signs of celiac visually but the chances are you will have to wait a couple of weeks for the biopsies before there's any confirmation. The damage to the villi is too small to detect with naked eye I think. as long as your eating some gluten each day you will have done all you can for a diagnosis. Not long now so go ahead and treat yourself to a nice cheesecake, fish and chips etc.  
    • check out CoQ10, not related to celiac (as far as I know) but for balance issues.
    • remind your hubby, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody gonna be happy."
