Does anyone have any alternatives to gluten free bread? Also different foods that don't include potatoes, rice etc as I'm struggling to think what to eat! It gets very repetitive! Thankyou!

Corn tortillas? Its what i use. There are also rice ones, but i've never had them.

Its not too difficult. I mainly, for example, eat soups most of the time. Take the meat, brown it till ya got a good crust, add water, simmer for 2-3 hours, add whatever veggie and seasonings you like.

Orgran has a line of what they call Crispibreads which are glutenfree. They are really crispy though, more like a long cracker. They are made in Australia and I get them at my local health food store here in NY. I mostly eat the Orgran Buckwheat Crispibread and I will put almond butter or tuna on it. I don't remember the other types of them but I think rice, corn and quinoa crispibread.

For different foods I mostly eat quinoa.

The quinoa flakes as a hot cereal and put maple syrup in it. It is quick and convenient and I usually make it in the microwave instead of on the stovetop in a pot. Or for an alternative hot cereal there is Cream of Buckwheat.

Then there is the regular quinoa which unlike the flakes needs to be rinsed first. But it only takes 15 minutes to cook on the stove in a pan and you can store it in the refrigerator for a week and add a little water to it when you want it and heat it in the microwave. I have it for dinner quite often and put a little butter and salt on it. It has a very mild taste. Sometimes I put shrimp or a piece of halibut over it and add toasted sesame oil. I use the white quinoa but they also make red and black which I think take a bit longer to cook, are crunchier and with a bit more flavor. You can also make Tabouleh Salad with cooked quinoa but I haven't tried that yet.

Another alternative is Kasha which is roasted buckwheat groats. You cook them on the stove adding water or broth, butter and salt. You stir the kasha over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes until it is hot and slightly toasted, then reduce heat to low and stir in the boiling water or broth, and butter and salt and cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes until kasha is tender and liquid is absorbed.

You can also make kasha pilaf by adding in sauted onions, mushrooms or other chopped vegetables and then cooking it as above.

    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!
