    I was recently diagnosed with gluten sensitivity. I also tested positive for wheat, soy, eggs and am lactose intolerant.  Does anyone have any links to sites with appropriate recipes?  I'm not a big fan of fruit and vegetables.  Some things, like peas, make me gag. I'd like to be able to make a smoothie to drink, but am not sure what to use for a protein. I had thought that whey was okay, but I don't think that's true.
     

    I have to say, I'm pretty bummed out by the whole thing.

    Any help from someone that's been at this longer would be appreciated.

    Be well,

    deb

    I would think you could use some white beans for protein, if you can find a brand guaranteed gluten free.  Elanaspantry.com has a lot of good recipes.  Start doing google searches on grainfree recipes, if they call for milk you can substitute with almond milk or coconut milk.  Eggs might be a little trickier, but I'm sure you could find some with no eggs (put that in your search too). Good luck and don't stop searching. New recipes come on all of the time. The paleo diet websites might have some recipes for you too.

    I agree with everything Lori said.  A few more good sites are http://www.thespunkycoconut.com/search/label/Shakes%20and%20Smoothies and http://www.lexieskitchen.com/recipe-box/  They both have whole sections on smoothies.  Cashew milk is also really good and easy to make at home, works really well in smoothies.  Try http://www.nutsonline.com for protein powders to add: hemp, maca, etc.  They have lots of interesting gluten free and organic options, alternative things you'd never think of.  Nuts are a great source of protein too.  Once you start snooping around online and gathering your ingredients you will be very happy with the choices you do have.  I started out over a year ago with guten, dairy, soy, egg, and yeast.  The only things I've added back are eggs, and I've given up many more foods due to additional intolerances, but I honestly feel better so it's worth it and I do not feel deprived.  Keep your spirits up!Laugh
