are there any other gluten free vegans out there? do you find it a struggle? I know I do. of course there are a lot of foods that can be eaten.. but I still struggle with it every day!

lately I've been drinking a lot of smoothies. I make them nutrient and calorie dense of course. I'm just wondering (being new to gluten-free) whether any gluten-free/celiac vegans could offer me some advice about how you make it work?

thanks :)

Ive been gluten-free for 7 years and vegan for almost 3. Keep wishing I could go raw too but spend too much time traveling. Lots of salads and hummus -- Some whole foods have raw sections now which are really good. wish i could stay away form the carbs but living in hawaii its not easy since everything comes with rice-- My biography will be called the fat vegan <G>.

i do grill a lot of different veggies and make a lot of different sauces-- also make my own spring rolls with different combos of veggies and sprouts.

time in the kitchen is always nice to make stuff...

good luck

Kenlove , are you grain ( other than rice) and soy free too??

I am slowly making my way back ( closer) to vegan. Currently I do consume eggs,dairy and turkey and ( occasionally when my DH is not off the hook ) fish . I am grain free ( with the exception being rice) and gluten and soy free. I am not sure I will ever be able to make the complete move back to vegan with out soy and grain . When I was vegan pre-celiac I was sooooooooo depended on soy and grains,

I am currently "maxing out" on legumes to see how well I am going to be able to tolerate large amounts ( up until now I have been rotating them in and out of my diet)

Any help as to how to make it work with out grain and soy??

I'm a gluten free, soy free, vegan. I think the hardest thing in our house is the combination of all of our different intolerances and allergies. My husband is allergic to corn, wheat, oats, all legumes and tomatoes. My oldest child and I are both soy intolerant, and have celiac disease. My youngest has celiac disease but, so far, no other food allergies or intolerances. It's like a guessing game on who can eat what at any given meal!

I've been vegan for 30 years, my 9yo has been vegan her entire life, (I was on cow milk formula then had cow milk for the first years before my mum realised the allergy I had to it) and we are coming up to 2 years gluten free since her diagnosis. We're lucky because we have Syndian frozen foods that make it easy to have backups in the freezer, San Remo gluten free pasta is also gluten free, and our pasta sauce has always been gfv so no need to change that. Our lasagna has always been vegan other than the pasta sheets, but again the San Remo ones are vegan. We have not had any problems, and even at a recent party we hosted with a Harry Potter theme, the Harry Potter Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans (by Jelly Belly) are gfv which was fantastic! Expensive, but great to have :D

We have an organic shop that specialises in gfv products, so my daughter has just taken a pack of chocolate eclairs to my mum's house. Not cheap, 3 small eclairs for $9 but it's great to have a nice treat readily available for her. Our cottage pie has always been gfv so there has been no need to change the recipe, same with our stir fries and chickpea curry. Our basic mains have needed very little changing, if any, and our snacks were always fruit, soy yoghurt with blueberries, Cheezely and antipasto things with rice crackers, so no need to change that. I make pavlova bases with Orgran No Egg, which is gfv and use soy cream and fresh fruit grown in our back yard so no need to change anything there either.

PP: My daughter is allergic to tomatoes, but can have them cooked, just not fresh. Does cooking make a difference? She comes out in massive welts on her skin and her mouth blisters and it really burns to wee when she has them, but she has them cooked in pasta sauces without any dramas.

    • Thanks guys! Ill defintley ask about the full thyroid panel. I did antibodies for those thyroid ones a year ago do i have to get that again.  Thanks Ennis for those recommandations I will resort back to my food diary!
    • To add to the good advice above. I think your husband has to take it on himself to communicate with his parents that this is a serious, medically diagnosed condition that their grandson has to live with for the rest of his life. He needs them to back you up, be supportive etc. On no account should you be cast as the fussy daughter-in-law who has to have her crazy notions indulged - they need to know that their son is 100% on board with this and that the pair of you are united. Just one other point. It's very difficult for most people to conceptualise celiac, they tend to think of it as they would a problem with spicy food say. Something that you should probably avoid but a little bit now and then won't hurt. So without getting scientific, it would be good if your husband could get that key point across. That a little is just about as bad as a lot when the body's immune system is involved.  That there can't be any compromises or cheating. Even the suggestion will be harmful for your son in adjusting. Also that you understand that their house cannot be a gluten-free environment and you don't expect them to change their lives whilst your there - but that you need to take reasonable precautions to keep your son safe.  I think as long as people understand there's reasons for all the precautions etc its easier for them to accept. They may not agree with it or understand it but they can at least understand your thought process.  Finally, get as much of this communicating done in advance so you, your husband and your son can just enjoy himself without constant references to his diet.  Hope it goes well!
    • I felt worse after I restarted gluten free diet after my challenge and had a rougher time than I had first time round. So I don't think its unusual. Give your body time to recover. Eat well, lots of good whole foods, maybe a decent multivitamin etc.  Go easy on processed gluten-free stuff for awhile and avoid oats as well.  best of luck  
    • It's a Yorkshire staple! I used to pass their then 'factory' just about every day when I lived in Sheffield, though apparently they've moved now and the Uni are going to turn their old place into a pub.   The relish is lovely and marked gluten free and suitable for coeliacs on the bottle for added reassurance. It's nice to add a bit of zip to sauces etc.  I think Morrisons stock it countrywide Cristiana but if you do struggle getting hold of some PM me and I'll post you a bottle.  
    • Reusable toaster bags....get them on Amazon.  Makes for easier travel.  Squeeze bottle for condiments are best.  Once a bag of chips are opened in the pantry, we are done.
