If you've been diagnosed with celiac disease, you'll need to avoid all foods that contain gluten. Ask your doctor for a referral to a dietitian, who can help you plan a healthy gluten-free diet. It's important to get enough vitamins, nutrients, fiber and calcium in your diet. Many basic foods are allowed in a gluten-free diet, including:
  • Fresh meats, fish and poultry that aren't breaded, batter-coated or marinated
  • Fruits
  • Most dairy products
  • Potatoes
  • Vegetables
  • Wine and distilled liquors, ciders and spirits
Grains and starches allowed in a gluten-free diet include:
  • Amaranth
  • Arrowroot
  • Buckwheat
  • Corn
  • Cornmeal
  • Gluten-free flours (rice, soy, corn, potato, bean)
  • Pure corn tortillas
  • Quinoa
  • Rice
  • Tapioca
Key word: celiac recipes
There are many cookbooks and even a monthly magazine you can subscribe to and have delivered on paper or on Amazon Kindle or I pad.

Many grocery stores have a gluten free section and flours with recipes on back

Gluten free cornbread mix is great in a 9x13 pan with extra honey added and an extra 1/2 TBls

baking powder. It rises and is like cake. Everyone will like it. I even sprinkle turbinado sugar lightly on top before baking. Warm it is great with butter, jam, honey and sorghum mollasses..

UDIS has mostly Frozen bread that toasted after defrosting is so crsp and the way toast should be. Costco gives toast samples with butter very often and they sell fresh. You can freeze in smaller quanties.

Red Robin Subway and many other places have gluten free buns,but Red Robin's are best of any.. Sprouts and Whole food type Markets sell Donuts, cupcakes, cookies etc frozen.

Make your own with gluten free flour and specific recipes for cakes cookies. Can buy frozen pie crusts or use nut  crusts. Pasta from Barilla, Ronzoni and others are gluten free and new ones are lentil and mix of other stuff and are really good with any sauce you make or bottled organic, just read label. Any thing that uses cornstarch as thickener is great. Taco mixes gravy mixes in packets are superb on potatoes.  You can make Mexican entrees with pure corn chips, and corn only tortillas. You can eat Mexican food just ask if sauces like avocado are gluten free. Outback have any meat grilled, baked potatoes and veggies, just say no croutons on salad. Oil and vinegar based dressings never have flour in them but Ranch and Mustard dressings and Catalina and Thousand Island may have wheat. Prepare to spend twice as long shopping reading labels now.

boxes and soups say at bottom of ingredient list contains wheat, soy or nuts or milk usually for those sensitive to those foods.

You cannot eat gluten foods. You will have gut pain and vomit for days and even diarrhea for days and have to do mild non gluten eating . I have 1 42 yr old that was fed as Celiac since 4 months old.and a 38 yr old that was diagnosed at age 15 yrs after bleeding ulcer treatment and bloody stools a result of the Celiac irritating her stomach lining and intestines.

They live normal lives can eat all fruits and meats, fish and veggies they want and can go to any restaurant abd order gluten free. Look at menus on line to see if you like their meat,          potatoes or rice etc. No Rice a Roni or mixed rice at most restaurants. Done right Risotto, Chicken fried rice etc is good.. but not regular soy sauce, use tamari at home. sweet and sweet sauce and mustard if flour free. Most Chinese and Thai restaurants use cornstarch in breading instead of flour. They will ask chef for you. Just say I am allergic and get very sick with flour, like peanut allergy that everyone understands.

Your life is not changed much just healthier choices grilled, steamed, not fried meats and veggies no blooming onions. You just cannot have gluten things or you have pain.

Do follow guidelines or you could end up with colitis, or Chron's disease and surgeries as part of intestines have to be removed and sometimes Ostomy bags till all is healed back.

It is easy to eat gluten free today. You may make a cookie or cake that tastes grainy or hard like a rock if you do not use a blended flour like in stores and even gluten bisquick.

Smile and know you are on your way to pain free and healing irritation of organs. Friends  etc will not know you have any allergy unless you ask a waiter and everyone knows allergies are dangerous. Do not feel sorry for yourself my children have children and none so far are Celiac, but they know how to just go to Corn Tortilla foods for a couple meals and pain goes away then it is Celiac as Dr tests do not always test positive when you are and patient is still sick. You have no medicines to take except when regular illness happen.

Taking one ingredient out of diet is a marvelous cure whatever your age. Sometimes people are 50yrs old and diagnosed and never felt good after eating a burger or hot dog and blamed the restaurant or fast food place, and went to eating broth and fruit and maybe plain chicken,Boars head at Kroger and many stores make and have brochure on gluten free meats. Buy them they are good.

Good luck!

Gray packets say gluten free on front in large letters as many gravy packets you are used to have flour but it says so in small print on back with ingredients.
Must read everything.
Make your own cookies and donuts if UDIS is not available as speciality bakeries charge $3 to $5 dollars a small muffin or cookie and they are not the best tasting!
I meant Gravy packets but was not looking as I typed
