Any suggestions? THANKS!!!!
hope that helps a bit.
i honestly dont recommend too many fake gluten free products because if you read the nutrition label, they arent very nutritious. my diet is basically fruits, vegetables, lentils, beans, split peas, nuts and especially seeds like pumpkin seeds, sesame, and hemp. my carbs are usually potatoes, corn, rice and quinoa. most fake breads i find aweful except the rice tortillas/pizza crusts. i usually get corn crips as a bread or soy crisps. for bread cravings i used to get sticky rice. tasted glutenous to me. for hot cereal theres a good gluten free cereal from bobs red mill i think. has a grits type of flavor. i prefer almond milk and make my own hemp milk. the hemp milk in containers taste bad to me. theres a lot of gluten free foods at roots that i love! my favorite brownies have eggs in them though so i dont call myself vegan anymore. i rarely eat them. oh, eating out isnt so fun. no more meetups at these chinese vegan places. best places are mexican. salads w/ beans, veggies, homemade salsa, avocado. or its steamed veggies and baked potato. eating out isnt fun anymore. i live my life around activities now rather then food events.
So if you are in the mood for some gluten free cake that's quick and easy then I'd recommend it. Of course its not the healthiest thing to eat but for a special occasion or a little treat it works
Blend up some comfrey leaves and rub them on your arm
“May all sentient beings be free of pain and suffering. May all sentient beings experience eternal joy and happiness. gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā.”
it doesnt! it helps to give me sinus infections tho. but cant put comfrey on. my cast is from my fingertips to my shoulder. been in a cast for 4 months! so now my elbow and wrist are frozen.......grrrrrr.... theres a high chance of a negative immune response to donor graft so thats probably why it didnt work.
hey, wanted to point out being gluten free has positives! for one you learn to cook twice as good as any restaurant. you have no other choice lol.
another, unless your rich and can afford all the gluten free items, you're forced to eat whole foods and much healthier. then so you dont feel left out, youre forced to live life and take up new ACTivities rather then living for the next meal. so my quality of life increased and my health/energy increased.
ok the bad part is not being able to partake in the office parties and being a pain at family get togethers, feeling like you have an ED when eating out. so be prepared to bringing your own meal with you. watch out for barley malt in soy-milks and gluten in bouillons. i was kinda used to not being a part of most food related things since i was vegan, but was sad to have to stop the vegan meetups. so i started new hobbies non food related.
also hard was giving up the bread. give it 6 months and your cravings go away. i am more then happy to be a support since it was hard for me.
if all else fails, consider some raw meet ups. except for the nama shoya, its usually gluten free and vegan. and usually they list ingredients.
I might have to skip over to Whole Foods this week.
i make a lot of stir fry with wheat free soy sauce. you can use tofu, veggies, and either rice or rice pasta. you can make everything with pasta just like normal, just use rice pasta. there are a lot of varieties. corn, quinoa, and brown or white rice. for breakfast you can have rice or corn cereal and grits or quinoa flakes. there are also a lot of gluten free brands of pancake mix.
there are even a couple gluten free faux meat products. amy's has a few gluten free veggie burgers, but they're hard to find. and there's a place in nyc i go to all the time called mah way (i think) that has great gluten free fake chicken, you can even order it online.
as far as restaurants go mexican and indian food are your best bet. just get corn tortillas and don't eat the naan.
