Gluten Free/Wheat Free recipes?
 
Hello!

When I hit 30, my allergies went all over the place.

I seem to have developed an intolerance to wheat. When I eat wheat-containing products (for example if I have one sandwich at lunchtime with regular bread), I then feel crazily full/slightly sick for the rest of the day.

Unfortunately I love bread. :purplex:

I have had this checked by my doctor. It isn't celiacs disease, so in my case it's a bit of an intolerance. I've dramatically reduced the amount of wheat products that I consume and have purchase gluten-free pasta and plain and self-raising flours. I still do eat regular bread on occasion, but then I suffer for it.

So - would you like to post your wheat-free and gluten-free recipes?

Sweet or savoury, I don't mind. I'm still searching for a good bread recipe as the shop-bought GF ones are always very heavy.

Maybe specify first if the recipe is definitely suitable for celiacs sufferers.

I'm in the UK but I do have some American measuring cups! So whatever measuring system you want to use is fine :whoohoo:

Post away!

Well if I get any I will share them. I think I may be gluten intolerant to an extent. Its not severe. I have read about celiacs disease and gluten intolerance that is really severe and mine is really livable.

Im not really sure Im gluten intolerant-I didnt go to a dr or anything. But I put myself on a really strict diet for about three months. Not because I thought my body didnt like gluten but because I was tired of having a hard time losing fat so I thought I would be really strict and see where it took me. So I ate protein and I got my carbs from fruits and veggies. I did not eat bread, wheat, rice, or other carbs and starches. I did drink a protein drink for lunch and Im sure it probably had gluten in it because it wasnt home made.

My results-No headaches at all! I was having headaches everyday-just regular ones. No bloating. My stomach used to look 7 months pregnant it was ridiculous. I dont feel sick anymore.

I didnt realize I was cutting down on gluten until someone on LHC was saying how she cut out gluten and her symptoms, similar to mine, all but disappeared. She said she was only cutting it out because of severe acne and one bonus to it was her moodiness, stress, and anxiety was almost gone! That interested me evern more than my other symptoms. My stress and anxiety can be off the charts sometimes but I wont go on meds because I have tried them before and they all made me gain weight-and lots of it.

So I havent tried this full force yet. My nutrition has not been good lately and I do feel like crap. So Im thinking of at least going back on my diet that I was on because even though I wasnt completely gluten-free I was pretty close and felt pretty darn good.

If I come across any recipies I will post them!

Oh goodness, I have so many! Haha.

One of the best things I make that is gluten-free... PEANUTBUTTERCOOKIES.

I half this recipe and use natural crunchy peanut butter (and organic evaporated cane sugar- the sugar and peanut butter types make all the difference in the world for tastiness): http://allrecipes.com/recipe/best-pe...er/detail.aspx

Have you tried spelt flour? I have an intolerance as well, but not celiac, and spelt is fine for me! You can replace flour with spelt in a 1:1 ratio, because it's basically ancient wheat (but I think it's technically not wheat). :)

I'll add more recipes tomorrow or the day after! It's getting late and I have a bit of craziness tomorrow for school. ;)

Sorry for double post- I don't think I can edit yet. D:

Are you looking primarily for things that usually include gluten/wheat re-done to be gluten-free or any gluten/wheat-free recipe? Once I seriously committed to stopping wheat/grains, it became really easy to stay off of it because I use soo maaany regular recipes that don't include grains that are ultra tasty.

I tend to use mixes when it comes to breads. I love pamelas bread mix, but the glutino pastry mix makes better pie crusts (both celiac approved gluten free brands btw) both use a mixture of rice flour and sorghum flour.

I also use coconut flour occasionally, though these recipies tend to use a lot of eggs, which make me cranky so I try to avoid them.

Depending on your other allergies, I make GF linguini with alfredo sauce (using parmesian cheese, butter, garlic, double devon cream, parsley) and I also have used GF lasanga noodles to make lasagna. The spagetti ones get used a lot too.

When making burgers, meatballs, or meatloaf, I use neither eggs nor crackers, but I have on occasion thrown in a cup of parmesian cheese as filler (works great).

I have made GF cinnamon rolls in the past, I will try to find the recipe.

I just found out I am allergic to wheat, which I am still getting accustomed to...there appears to be some form of wheat in just about everything!

I am already a vegan, so finding foods that fit both criteria is a bit more challenging.

I don't really have many recipes to contribute at the moment, but I do like Tinkyada brand brown rice pasta, with plain tomato sauce that I season myself and a salad with homemade vegan Caesar dressing. I usually like garlic bread with that meal too, but that is now in progress as I haven't found a suitable bread for myself yet.

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this thread, and will contribute recipes as I get them! :happy:

thanks for linking that cookie recipe :)

I've switched to a paleo diet recently which is really helping with my depression and insomnia, but the past 2 days I have been really craving biscuits with my tea! I'll be trying this recipe asap, I know the sugar content isn't particularly paleo but as long as it's grain-free I should be fine, I'll probably sub the peanut butter for almond butter too.

AineMuirne October 15th, 2012 03:26 PM

I'm paleo, too. :) I do eat dairy, though. And oooonce in a while (about once a month) some spelt flour, since I'm not trying to lose weight.

afu October 15th, 2012 04:27 PM

I baked the cookies linked, I used mostly almond butter (a bit of peanut butter as i ran out of almond), less sugar and no salt. I also added a couple of handfuls of whole mixed nuts. They are AMAZING, so happy to have a grain free biscuit option.
