I decided to start this thread so any information, discussions or recipes on the subject didn't get muddled or lost in the other forums. smile

As some of you know I am doing some research for Sue (Sooliz) to help her find a way of making her diet more interesting & exciting as well as giving her some comfort food & treats while still sharing meals with her husband (who is neither diabetic or gluten free).

 

I found this very interesting discussion on an American site¦.

 

http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=355449&#038.....8;start=45

 

This link (above) takes you into the middle of the thread but it starts here¦.

 

http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=355449&#038.....38;start=0

 

So many discussions or recipes are aimed at either diabetics or GF groups but Sue has multiple allergies etc. It seems that there are a lot of people out there will similar but not identical problems.

 

Please add any relevant information you come across. wave

Thanks so much Nadine - for this thread and for the links.  I'll read them later on, when I've got more time.  Oh, and new laptop has arrived, so I may be a while! whistle

wave Sue,

I don't know whether you know this blog....

 

http://glutenfreegirl.com/about/

 

.... I think everyone with coeliac disease should read this introduction as it gives such hope & conveys such joy in eating, that it is a tonic in itself.   laugh

I have seen that Gluten Free Girl website and read a few recipes off it, Nadine.  However, I'd never read the introduction about her before.....well I have now, and it's a delight, and it made me cry (but in a good way).  Thank you big_hug

Hi Sue,

Maybe this recipe for Goat cheese truffles could become a wicked, occasional treat for you¦¦.every girl needs a chocolate treat every now & then !!   laugh

Just scroll down beyond the Tabouli recipe¦.Or rather as this link says Parsley....all very confusing I know.

 

A Recipe for Parsley¦

Ooh Nadine, I absolutely LOVE truffles!  Didn't think I was allowed goat's cheese (or soft cheese, other than brie/camembert) due to the lactose intolerance.  However, on consulting the FODMAP booklet the dietician gave me, I see I can have a small amount (but not every day).  I feel a treat day coming on at the weekend......laugh

laugh I am so glad for you Sue,

As you can see from the menu she says they freeze well so you can make a batch & store them there for those hopeless, deprived moments that most of us have.....whistle roll_eyes

I second that. I'm having to cut my sugar intake again. My body doesn't like it any more than gluten.  (But I do!)  frown

 

There's a lot of diabetes in my family. I'm hoping it's possible to avoid it by eating carefully, so I shall follow this thread with interest.

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

Sue, I thought you could eat/drink goat's milk/cheese/butter if you are lactose intollerant., I tried it a few years ago to see if it helped with my sinuses...which it did, I now tend to use that Lactrofree milk rather than goats milk, but still buy goats cheese & butter.

So did I, Jan - I've been having goats milk for a while now.  However, the dietician (and the FODMAP booklet) says I should avoid it and only have the lactofree or soya stuff, although a small amount of the goats stuff is allegedly ok now and again.

I know it's early days yet, but must say my stomach isn't feeling quite so upset now laugh

wave  ok   Great news Sue...I am so pleased for you; let's hope it continues to improve.

I will get back to researching when I feel a little better, at the moment all I want to do is sleep......a sure sign with me that I am not well. Luckily I had my grocery delivery a day early & in it are various packets of fresh fish (to stow away in the freezer), so later I will have some haddock steamed, with a pile of plain boiled rice. That should be gentle enough on my upset stomach.
