I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a meat substitute product which doesn't contain Gluten or Wheat. My 7 year old niece has serious GI issues (serious enough that she could require surgery soon if we don't get her diet optimised) at the moment, and we are trying to cut anything out which can cause constipation. I have been a vegetarian for about 3-4 months (which was driven by a combination of health issues and a dislike for Agribusiness) and my GI issues have gone away, so I suggested that to my sister. We really want to get her on a Vegetarian diet, but she also has Celiac Disease. Because of this, she can not have any amount of Wheat, or anything else that contains gluten. We usually make her Gluten-free Hamburger/Chicken Helper, and we'd like some sort of meat substitute to mix in with this which is also gluten free. Everything I can find by Morning Star, Boca, and Gardenburger has wheat or gluten in it. Is there any that are gluten-free? Or does anyone have recipes which will make a similar product but doesn't contain gluten, or could be modified so it doesn't contain gluten? I would really appreciate any help on this issue. I know that cutting out meat helped me a lot, and it's hard to see my niece in pain, so I'd love to help her stop hurting as soon as possible. Any other suggests of what to do are also greatly appreciated. Currently she's on fiber, Vitamin C, prunes, apricot juice, and a diet of Mostly fruits and veggies.
Thanks in advance everyone
