Is anyone else Gluten Intolerant or have Celiac Disease? I thought we could share recipes on here that don't have gluten in them.
My favorite gluten free baking mix is from Pamela's Products. You can make soooo many things with both her baking mix and Bread mix without the added wheat and gluten that hurt our bodies. emoticon

I have had celiac since 1996. There are so many more products out now then when I first was diagnosed.
I still don't love gluten free pasta, and cannot stand most of the breads, I have been craving a real cinnamon raisin bagel, and have not tried the gluten free ones, after my experience with the breads.
I have some great gluten free recipes.
not sure how to figure out teh calories etc.

Hi,

I too am gluten intolerant. The artichoke pasta by DeBoles is really good. It has the same texture and taste as regular wheat pasta. I really don't care for the rice pasta as it tends to get very glue like. emoticon

Hey everyone, I am also gluten intolerant. I just found amazing Cinnamon Sugar donuts by Kinnikinick (sp?). Get this...only 140 calories and the sugar grams and fat grams are low. They are actually better than the real thing in my opinion!!!!!

I just got my shakeology which is gluten free and can't wait to try it!

yes, please share recipes and ideas. I've been diagnosed with celiac disease for several years. It's hard to get carbs in, at least that is what i find, now that i am not living on chocolate any more.

This can be a side salad or you can add chicken and top it with a little cheese to make a meal!

Southwest salad: 1c frozen corn thawed, 1 15 oz can black beans, 3-4 tomatoes finely chopped, 1/4 c green onions,1/4 fresh cilantro finely chopped, 1 T green chilis, juice of 1 or 2 limes. Stir all together and chill.

We've been gf in our house for 6 years and never felt better. (2nd child had severe enough reactions that we banned it from the house. Since the rest of us experienced a profound increase in our 'normal' health status, we all made the switch with him completely.)

We ended up finding out that we just don't do very well with too much of any grain.

We also don't do yeast and are extremely restricted re: sugar and even more so with dairy. Dairy is for special celebrations in our house. If we eat it every day for a week, by the end of the week we are all miserable with gastro. issues, leg pain, brain fog, etc.

Tomorrow is day 1 for us. I am looking forward to hitting the next level in my search for the healthiest life possible for my family and myself!

It doesn't seem like people post here much. But just for the heck of it, I thought I'd post a few meals.

Today, I'll post my breakfast:

Smoothie: banana, frozen juice concentrate (no sugar), almond milk, creatine, glutamine

Mediterranean Omelette

Saute:
handful of mushrooms
1/4 tomato
1/2 purple onion

4 eggs (I'm a big protein eater even before this.)

About 2 cups of water to drink with it.

Mother's Day brings my favourite dinner.

Even though we have this about once a week, I never get tired of it.

Baked chicken with wonderfully brown, crispy skin.
Cauliflower
Salad with oil/vinegar dressing

We eat early then have salad with chicken bits on it for supper.

Any leftovers, bones and all (for their calcium content) get put in a big pot of water with cabbage, simmered 3 hours and turned into a beautiful stock that I'll use for cooking rice, making soup, etc.

Bliss.

SO happy to discover this thread! I gave up wheat and dairy almost 20 years ago (after reading D'Amato's book "Eat Right 4 Your Type" - and it changed my life). (I am Blood Type O.)

Anyway, I became extremely ill about 2 years ago and was diagnosed with Celiac. Since then, I've been on an extremely strict diet containing no gluten. My motto is "When in doubt, go without."

There are a lot of great web sites and magazines out there to assist us in our lifestyle. It's not nearly as tough eating GF as it used to be, even 10 years ago. And a lot of restaurants cater to the GF diet. I did not read this entire thread, so forgive me if I am repeating a lot of the same information that's already been addressed.

I cannot remember the last time I enjoyed a great shake; so when I learned that Shakeology was GLUTEN FREE - I immediately got on Home Direct! I tell everyone about this nutritious, delicious, gluten-free drink!

If you have friends who are suffering with stomach issues (and who doesn't have those friends?) - suggest that they go on a GF diet for just 2 weeks - and see if that will give them some relief. What have they got to lose? Except the pain! I am grateful every day for not having any more stomach pain...

Just a side note, as far as some of the GF bread, I'm not too excited about it. But I have discovered that Millet Bread makes some decent toast to have with my eggs.

Also, Homemade Gourmet (on line) has gluten-free seasonings that I've found to be extremely tasty! Especially the Garlic Lemon Seasoning and the Sunday Roast Seasoning. I use them on chicken, beef, fish...my whole family loves the flavor.

Here's to all of us for taking on our lives in Gluten-Free Style ~

Sweet Potatoe Gnocchi for the Gluten Intolerant
12/3/10 6:28 PM as a reply to nlwynalda.
Hi everyone! I know that I have had such a hard time finding good gluten-free foods, especially carbohydrates. I am extremely sensitive to gluten (I have Celiac Spruce/Disease) and even the slightest contamination will set me off, so I make everything from scratch in my own kitchen. One of my favorite recipes is a sweet potato gnocchi, and when done properly tastes soooo good. Give it a try! emoticon

* 2 (8 ounce) sweet potatoes
* 1 clove garlic, pressed
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1 egg
* all-purpose gluten-free flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake sweet potatoes in aluminum foil for 30 minutes, or until soft to the touch. Remove from the oven, and set aside to cool.

Once the potatoes are cool enough to work with, remove the peels, and mash them. Blend in the garlic, salt, nutmeg, and egg. Mix in the flour a little at a time until you have soft dough. Use more or less flour as needed.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. While you wait for the water, make the gnocchi. On a floured surface, roll the dough out in several long snakes, and cut into 1-inch sections. Or just roll the gnocchi balls in your hands and set aside. Drop the pieces into the boiling water, and allow them to cook until they float to the surface. Remove the floating pieces with a slotted spoon, and keep warm in a serving dish. Serve with butter or cream sauce, especially Alfredo.

I also like to saute mushrooms (I like shiitake because they are low in fat, high in protein, vitamins, and minerals) and broccoli and perhaps some cherry tomatoes cut in halves to add into the mix with the sauce. If you are looking for some extra protein, adding grilled chicken is very easy too.

Enjoy!

I'm so glad to know that there are other Celiacs out there that are Beachbody people and understand what it is like to struggle with low-energy and low B12 levels. There are so many great GF products out there now!

I have found a whole range of "bread" products at Sprouts. So far the best gluten free bread I have found is Rudi's. There is also Rudi's bagels. Most of the gluten free breads seem hard and tasteless. Rudi's is suprisingly light and tasty.

I have had some luck with rice pasta, also found at Sprouts. I thought I would never eat pasta again but now if I really want some, the rice pasta is pretty tasty.

I would like to find some protein bars that taste good and are gluten free. Has anyone tried what is out there?

If you can find a brand that is called Heartland I am a pretty big fan of their pasta. You should give them a try.
