If You Could Eat Whatever You Wanted And

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So it got me to thinking (Can you smell the smoke?).......What if you were granted a wish and could eat whatever you wanted for one day with no side effects? What would your top three choices be?

Let's hope this miracle gluten-free pill that is rumored to be in the works become a reality so we can go back to enjoying some old favorites.

Thanks For Playing!

It's been 9 years so I'm having a hard time remembering but what I do miss is:

1) Alex'x Pizza (local restaurant that is a tradition with the university here)

2) MY apple pie (my hubby thinks it's the best)

3) King's Hawaiian bread, rolls, whatever

IF I WERE NOT CASEIN AND SOY AS WELL AS GLUTEN INTOLERANT I WOULD EAT: yogurt, ice cream, cheesecake, carrot cake with real cream cheese frosting, oh heck, REAL CHEESE ANYTHING; butter on all my vegies and breads; ANY milk chocolate candy, fudge, chocolate truffles; real milk on cereal (those nut/rice milks are awful :blink: ), LATTES (nut/rice/potato milks fall apart in coffee) and milkshakes; all those oriental recipes with SOY sauce. Obviously I don't miss anything with gluten. I envy all of you who can still eat soy and dairy but complain about all the gluten products you miss. I miss dairy the most. :(

OOPS! I missed the 3 things requirement. :o How about anything with real milk, real cheese or real butter??? :lol:

BURDEE

I believe I was the bread queen. I used to make the most delicious braided Challah breads and a round country loaf with a crusty outside... I am drooling here!! That's my first and foremost wish!! Bread and butter!!!

Second I'd choose Pizza Hut's Stuffed Crust pizza with pepperoni and pineapple... and beer (that's ONE food!!)

Lastly, real chocolate cake... made with flour... light and fluffy... with chocolate frosting!!

Oh My I miss so much. I have had food allergies and migraines a while now, so even before the doctor suspected celiac disease, things like dairy have been out for years and soy and foods with MSG are too now!!!! And so many things have MSG hidden in them. I had to cut out Chinese food years ago b/c of status migraines, oh I miss it!!!! I still kept getting migraines till I cut out MSG this year.

I miss beer and pizza!!!!!!! Cookies at XMAS will be hard. I love biscuits and stuff too. Just the smell of homemade stuff baking. Oh I miss that. Walking in a bakery. OH, sigh. Going out to eat, what a nightmare that is now. Not something you can do casually any more now. Miss it. But not worth getting sicker over!!!!!

Chicken and dumplings, yum. Well I better quit now. I miss so much. I always ate in moderation but had a little bit of a sweet tooth. I mean some of the best bonding moments with family were with coffee and sweets!!!!!! And family dinners.

I have to answer this one in this way:

Since I first discovered that gluten had been harming me, foods with gluten in them no longer even registered in my brain as 'food'...they only register now as 'poison for me, food for non-Celiacs'...so, I do NOT miss gluten-containing foods at all -

BUT, guys still register as guys, especially cute ones ;-)

So.... I truly only am 'bothered' that I have to remember to not kiss a guy that might have just eaten or drank something with gluten in it....

Otherwise, I TRULY do not 'want' anything that is not gluten-free.

So, I would have to choose the only thing I miss...

Being able to kiss without thinking about gluten first!

There would be so many things. I would start out with a big fat dount, then move on to fish and chips with french bread, fried chicken, pasta, pizza and a hamburger, those would just be my entrees, then I would eat stuffed pork chops with coated french fries and top that off with oreo's, choclate cake and cheescake! :D

dream on I guess.

1. Newcastle Brown Ale

2. Guiness Stout

3. Two-Hearted Ale

I was becoming such a good beer snob and being a wine snob is a lot harder to do. :lol:

Other than that I don't miss anything derived from grains at all.

A good micro-brew while sitting around a campfire and the convenience of just picking up a slice of pizza or a falafel wrap. I can make those myself but I miss the convenience. Oh- and McDonald's french fries. I'm too sensitive to chance it.

If I knew I wouldn't be in pain, and it wouldn't cause damage, I could totally sit down and eat a whole entire loaf of fresh baked sourdough bread....Mmmmmmm.

That is the main thing that I have not been able to make a gluten-free replacement that tastes ANYTHING like the real thing...And please don't try to give me any recipes. I am an idiot when it comes to making yeast breads. :blink:

After I ate the bread, then I might go out for chinese. After that maybe stop by a pizza place on the way home! :D

Hi Viola! It is ice cream but it has pretzels in it. It's vanilla ice cream with peanut butter and fudge swirls and chocolate covered, peanut butter filled pretzels. I'm drooling!

Oh yummm, that sounds wonderfully sinful :P I've been gluten free for over 16 years, so I've never tasted that one. But I just had some ROLO ice cream over a sliced banana so I can live with that :rolleyes:

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
