Hi - I started on a gluten-free diet about three weeks ago and I'm feeling pretty good! I never had major stomach issues (just some bloating) so it took me a while to decide to do this.

The bloating is better. My energy level is definitely up. So I'm sold on this and I'm going to continue.

But I need to figure out how to make this workable long-term - especially difficult since my daughter has food allergies and is allergic to most grains other than wheat.

Can anyone recommend a good cookbook or web site for gluten free recipes?

Also, for those who are like me and are gluten free to help with Lyme symptoms but do not have celiac, would the occasional bite or two of gluten have consequences? What would they be?

I eat grain-free primarily. 100% of the time at home. I found rice to be just as bloating as wheat, maybe even more so. Same with corn.

Once in a while we go out for pizza and I have regular pizza. Since I eat grain-free, any gf pizza would also have grain, so I just go for the real stuff. Any other time we eat out, I still eat grain-free. I do notice bloating the day after we have pizza, so it's becoming less and less of a treat.

I eat mostly vegetables and fruit. I eat meat, eggs, dairy. Nuts and nut butters. I eat three cups of greens every day. I do eat potatoes and quinoa.

There are a lot of paleo websites out there and since they're all grain-free, you will find gf reciipes there. I like www.marksdailyapple.com and have a couple of his books.

Sorry WP, I don't know of a good cookbook. Hopefully more people will respond here.

Six, UNOs has a good gluten free pizza (burgers and more). It's not grain free, but it's good (veggie,or pepperoni, or cheese and tomato). I'm not supposed to eat dairy, but I cave when it comes to pizza. I eat two per week. [Smile]

Here is a link with diet info .. also a link within this link with more recipes. (not ALL are GF)

http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php/topic/3/31847

Also.. go to www.celiac.com for a printed list of hidden gluten ingredients and lists of OK foods. Very helpful!!

Good luck with feeling better and better as you refrain from eating gluten! [Smile]

A few more ideas:

http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php/topic/3/31804

Do a search in General Support. Most recipes and questions about gluten are there.

It is better to stay off of all gluten to feel better. I did not find the cookbooks as helpful as Pinterest.com

Pinterest is a internet site that has about any type of info you would like.

You can type gluten free up in the search bar and it will posts a huge amount of info about celiac, gluten issues, and other grains.

I have found forgetting about all grains and going to seeds, coconut flour/meal, and almond meal has been my best bet. Hope this info helps.

"would the occasional bite or two of gluten have consequences? What would they be?"

yes, an occasional bite would definitely have consequences. For me, it would mean joint pain, inflammation in areas that have been previously injured, flu like feeling and a flushed hot face, also hives if it's real bad (like when I put on a gluten containing lotion.)

I have issues with Candida and exposure to gluten causes inflammation in my intestine and then the Candida flares because it leaches through the intestine when that inflammation is there... So I get a double reaction.

Eliminating gluten 80% does not give you 80% benefit. Best to go gluten free 100%. Once you do this, you'll know the occasional slip up when it happens.

Thanks. There's not an Uno's near us. And usually they use rice or corn in gluten free .... I actually do better treating on wheat than on rice or corn. It's only once or twice a month for me.

I do not have celiac or gluten intolerance. For those of you who do, yes, even a bite is bad.

How is the Uno's pizza?

Tried to order it but they brought a regular one instead. Thankfully, I asked again if it was gluten-free when they brought it.

At which point we decided to bag it and go elsewhere.

Delicious. :) It's a flat bread version though, but the sauce is the same.
