My friend used to need to eat Gluten free and she usually had grilled chicken with a baked potato and vegetables.  But she did eat this really great cajun shrimp sometimes that she would put the spices on and grill.  A lot of her food too was food that she had ordered online that was specially made without the foods she had allergies to.

@FutureMrsChaney: how long have you been gluten free? I had my second anniversary in November. 

At first I was really hung up on meals that came from gluten free cookbooks and blogs. After a while, I’ve gotten really comfortable subbing gluten free ingredients into regular recipes. Just make sure you keep a couple varieties of GF pasta (Tinkyada is the best), GF bread (Udi’s is the ONLY one that is worth eating, pizza crusts (Udi’s again) and some GF flour blend on hand at all times. The options for GF have exploded just in the two years since I stared. Let me know if I can help with anything else. 🙂

My best friend (and MOH) has celiac disease and has been gluten free for almost 10 years now. She usually just tries to eat “normal” food options that are natually gluten free. She eats a lot of chicken and vegetables. She does get gluten free noodles and makes all sorts of things that way. Another option is rice. She eats a lot of dishes with rice. I suggest looking through regular recipes and finding ones that don’t contain any flour or cream based soups or anything else that has gluten.

I hope that helps!

Quinoa is fantastic! Packed with protein and can be eaten hot or cold.

@FutureMrsChaney: Yeah I forgot to mention that my friend like mrstj2b’s friend had celiac disease and was also allergic to dairy and soy.  She was on shots for so long that now she can eat most things without a problem now but she had so little she could eat that it was ridiculous which is why she usually stuck to chicken and vegetables.
