Q&A: What are some meal ideas for a gluten free diet?

Question by Ello: What are some meal ideas for a gluten free diet?
Hi,

I have talked to a lot of people and researched, that a gluten free diet can be beneficiary in many ways and shed fat. I am a little hesitant, but I think it is at least worth a try. If I were to try being gluten free for a week, can you give me a meal plan or just some really good gluten free meals to give me energy but give me those health benefits. Thanks

Max

potatoes, eggs, chicken, fish, beef, lots of green vegetables, olive oil, coconut oil, bacon, white rice, nuts (in moderation), fruit (in moderation)…put olive oil on everything..it makes veggies taste so much better.

Warning—You may feel like crap after a few days..this is your body withdrawing from its dependence on sugar (carbs)…this can last weeks and it can get worse before it gets better. Your body has to adjust to burning fat for energy. After your body becomes efficient at burning fat you’ll feel 100 times better.

Switched to gluten free about a week now and instead of gluten sending me to the bathroom(yeah sorry 😉 something else is or has anyone had that problem, could it just be my body adjusting?

Hi Lauren,

You should have been feeling much better after switching to gluten free diet. I do not know what is wrong with you. Based on what you have written I am inclined to think that gluten allergy was the wrong diagnosis. Please re-evaluate if you are truly allergic to gluten.

What do you think? Answer below!

Q&A: Food ideas for people with Celiac’s disease?

Question by potentiallywonderful: Food ideas for people with Celiac’s disease?
A friend has been diagnosed with wheat/gluten allergy. Can anyone suggest any good meal tips?

Best answer:

Answer by Anama

Sure. First you need the unsafe list:
http://www.celiac.com/articles/182/1/Unsafe-Gluten-Free-Food-List-Unsafe-Ingredients/Page1.html

Is it allergies (histamine) or Celiac (autoimmune response)? or both?
Allergies you have to act differently around (possibly nothing even airborne) because it could result in breathing issues, celiac is just no cross contam or ingestion of gluten (which is in wheat,barley,rye, spelt, triticale, kamut, etc, etc.) . Thought I would ask, there is a biiiig difference. Also wheat free does not mean gluten free many times, so you need to be very careful about that when buying products . Also gluten free doesn’t necessarily mean wheat free (ex: in the UK wheat sugar is considered gf. If someone with wheat allergy ate it, they would be sick!). You just need to ask your friend to clarify for you so you won’t get them sick.

Anyway, here are my fav Celiac recipie sites, you can assume that they are wheat free :
http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/
and here:
http://gluten-freerecipes.blogspot.com/

Otherwise, just plenty of whole fresh foods (especially in the beginning). There are plenty of gf products now, just look for hidden wheat/gluten products that could be present (barley grass, wheat grass, wheat sugar are considered gf in the UK and can be present in products made there).

Oh, and if celiac and newly diagnosed, NO DAIRY for several months while her villi heal, ok? (no villi tips, no lactase being produced)
Good luck! Hope this helps. Add details if you need more info., I’ll keep checking back.
Edit: Wow! who is the silly person that thumbs downed me? lol! Asker, you can assume this answer is 100% correct and can use the advice with confidence. Sometimes people just don’t know any better and do stuff like that! And sherbet is usually NOT safe, please do NOT give your friend sherbet unless you specifically check the label. Perry’s is gf, by the way.
p.p.s.. if you are thinking about cooking for him/her please be careful about cross contamination if you are a wheat/gluten eater. The most common areas? Cutting boards,toasters, wooden spoons, breadmakers,pizzabricks.
Please get the allergy/intolerance or both question answered as well.

I’m a Celiac (wheat and gluten allergic) plus have a spastic colon! Any ideas about what to eat?

Question by alexgirl: I’m a Celiac (wheat and gluten allergic) plus have a spastic colon! Any ideas about what to eat?
I have two major problems with the tummy: wheat allergy and a spastic colon. If anyone out there has these two conditions together to deal with (by the way, my doctor says I’m the only one in her practice who has the two conditions to deal with) — I’d be interested in how you keep things under control and give your diet some variety. I’m really limited at this point and losing weight. I do take lots of a pro-biotic and acidophylis which is a big help.

Answer by Fly Butterfly
Ideas: Meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, salads, cheeses, stir fries using tamari instead of soy sauce sauce, rice pasta with bolognase sauce, chicken schnitzels using corn flour and GF breadcrumbs, peanut butter, eggs, omelettes, GF pancakes, rice noodles, stuffed capsicums (minced beef and rice), spinach and ricotta stuffed capsicums, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, fish coated in rice flour and fried…. there’s so much out there, you just need to be creative. Be careful of buying fries from fast food places, they are often cooked in the same oil as other battered foods.

Party food ideas for celiac disease?

Question by answergrl239: Party food ideas for celiac disease?
I need some quick recipes or things you can buy (preferably buy) that is ok for people with celiac disease to eat. Thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by Anama

What age group are we talking here? and how much prep?
There is always chips and salsa. Go here for chips:
http://www.fritolay.com/fl/flstore/cgi-bin/ProdDetEv_Cat_306_SubCat_351852_NavRoot_361689_ProdID_364066.htm
Then the old stand by of fresh fruit and veggie platter. For the fruit dip use stoneyfield yogurt (cert. gf) or honey. For the veggies go here and scroll down to the gluten free/celiac info:
http://www.maplegrove.com/faq.asp

gf olives from jars, NOT the olive bar, arranged on a platter are always good. Avoid the bluecheese stuffed ones (it can be grown on a wheat medium). If you have a Wegman’s or Whole foods nearby they usually mark stuff as being gf.

For food you can always do wings (make your own though) baked in Kraft italian dressing, hot sauce (check labels) and other salad dressings.
There are just a ton of things to make, too many to write out. There isn’t a lot of prepared party type stuff, so be ready to cook. Please be sure not to get the gluteny stuff too close to the non-gluten stuff to avoid cross contamination. I tend to keep things on seperate tables to avoid that situation, or go totally gluten free.
For other ideas go here:
