Re: Wheat and dairy free recipes - August 21st 2012, 02:51 PM

Greetings!

I also am starting a wheat(gluten) free diet for health reasons. I really don't have any specific recipes yet, but I can share some of the things I've been eating.

I eat a lot of rice. It's not highly nutritional, but it gives the carbohydrates that would normally come from wheat. Usually I make some sort of stir fry. I can give you my recipe or you can look online for all of the different kinds of sauces to make. Just make sure you get gluten-free soy sauce. Then fry whatever veggies you like, and meat (I'm vegetarian so I leave that out), add the sauce and put it over rice. And I make tacos with corn tortillas or shells instead of the wheat ones. Fill them with rice, beans or meat and whatever veggies you like. I use corn shells in place of bread for sandwiches too. It's not the same, but it works. I haven't tried gluten-free bread yet.

Also, there's a grain called Quinoa. You cook it the same as rice and add whatever spices or sauce that you like. It has a bit more nutrition than rice does. They also make pasta out of this grain or you can buy other wheat/dairy free pastas. I don't find much difference in them than regular pasta, maybe a bit different in texture, but that's no big deal. They come in spagetti or various noodles and can be used just like the normal. If you liked macaroni and cheese before, use one of these options along with some soy cheese.

If you do eat meat, you'll still have a lot of options. For breadings you can use cornmeal and gluten-free flour. In place of milk you can try out soy milk or almond milk if you want something a little sweeter. There are a lot of options now that more people are being diagnosed with health issues that require dairy and gluten free diets. I know that these alternative foods may taste/feel different than what you may usually eat and they might take a little getting used to.

Baked goods are a little harder to come by. It's possible to make gluten free cookies and cakes, but without egg it makes it more difficult. Try looking up gluten free vegan baked goods if you want to try any. I haven't had experience with any recipes though.

Also I want to mention that you should talk to your doctor about calcium and vitamin D suppliments since you won't be getting much from your diet.

If I come up with any specific recipes I'll be sure to message them to you!

Take care,
Sam

I can't eat dairy or gluten and I choose not to eat meat. So obviously my diet is pretty limited as well haha.
Quinoa as the other person mentioned is great. I like to add some veggies like broccoli and tomatoes in it for more flavor. I also recommend getting gluten free cereals. Puffin's honey rice cereal is my favorite- it tastes like cake!
I would also stock up on things like soups where you just have to add water (tomato is a good option), popcorn, and rice. Rice is also good and it doesn't contain any gluten but it provides carbs which you need since that's your primary source of energy.


And here you are living, despite it all.
