Celiac Disease

Is it incongruous that a board with a "Hot Body Weight Loss Contest" also demanded a recipes forum to help each other get fat? I cannot see how.

Celiac Disease

Postby lilcis » Wed 22 Sep, 2010 11:07 am

So my 7 yr old niece who is diabetic has just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease as well. Does anyone have any resources for blogs or websites that highlight gluten-free recipes?

Lisapants has two uncles with Celiac Disease. They both have very different approaches to how they deal with it. The wife of one of them has gotten very good at finding alternative methods of cooking things so they do not contain gluten for her husband, but are still appetizing and don't make him feel like a weirdo for not being able to eat what everyone else is eating. Maybe Lisapants can get some links from her about that stuff.

The wife of the other uncle with Celiac disease has become a food hypochondriac and has the entire family on a strange, extremely restrictive diet because she has convinced herself that everyone in that family has the same gluten intolerance that her husband has. Hopefully your niece's parents don't go down that same crazytown route and are instead much more sane about dealing with your niece's dietary needs. After all, no kid likes to be labeled as "The Kid Who Can't Eat ______" around all of their friends.

I also have a friend who has a little girl who is allergic to wheat. I'll ask her and my aunt where they get their gluten-free recipes.

From my aunt:
http://www.celiac.com They have a recipe section
http://glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com
http://crockpot365.blogspot.com She has links to GF crockpot meals here
http://www.eatingglutenfree.com/recipes_bread/#btips

From my friend:
http://www.GlutenFreeChecklist.com
She also gets ideas from the magazine Living Without. She also said her local library has lots of gluten-free cookbooks.

They both mentioned that they do a lot of Googling for recipes, too.

Hope these help!

Mister B can't have gluten.. or dairy... or tomatoes.. or potatoes.. or...

For Christmas I bought myself the cookbook "Cooking for Isaiah" which has all gluten free & dairy free recipes in it. I've really liked everything I've tried (although I did screw up the chicken tenders.) There's tons of gluten free cookbooks out there but not many that are also dairy free.

The reason I recommend this one in this situation is that Isaiah is a child so a lot of the recipes are ones that are appealing to kids. Unfortunately, a lot of the gf recipes I've come across are pretty complicated. I want a cookbook that is EASY gluten free dishes. I guess I'll keep hunting for that one.

Wow... gluten-free and dairy-free is hard enough, but to have tomatoes and potatoes restricted too seems almost impossible.
Of course, nothing is impossible, but those four groups knock out a whole bunch of recipes. I'm sorry, Ben. And Pet.

Supposedly, I should not eat anything with corn or soy products. Really, world?? Fractionated corn and soy products are in about 99.99% of everything that undergoes any processing or restaurant cooking at all, so lots of luck there, Karen. Fooey.

Anyhow, I haven't checked any of the recipes from these guys, so I don't know whether any of them are dairy-free also, but here is a website from a company that makes gluten-free baked goods, and they have a Recipes tab at the top of the page, if anyone wants to check it out. http://udisglutenfree.com/
Have a nice day, unless you already have other plans.

When Ben first became sick he couldn't handle corn or soy either. That was almost impossible because a lot of the gluten free alternatives to things are corn based. He ate a very limited diet and lost around 80 pounds. (He looked sickly. Now he can eat corn and soy in small amounts and is back to a normal looking weight.) We rarely eat out at restaurants. Unless it's a local one where we know the owners or where they cater specifically to gluten free diets - it's impossible.

Thanks to lisapants I've been cooking recipes off the crockpot 365 site. (Plus, I bought the first of her two cookbooks.) So far, everything has been delicious, and I'm ECSTATIC to find gluten free slow cooker recipes. Thank you so much!

Karenin - I'll have to check out that site. I just read a review of their bread saying that it was the best gluten free bread out there.

Is there a Great Harvest store nearby? Some of them have a gluten free bread and the one I have tried here in San Antonio is quite good. My daughter prefers their gluten free chocolate chip cookie to their regular one. And apparently it is rather common for someone with celiacs to also have a dairy sensitivity.
