Thank you Mark, I added that to my AOL Favorties. Sence I'm going dairy-free too, it's a good idea that I make sure I'm getting enough protien. All though I'm taking tablets also.
Thanks again, Judy

Here is a listing of vegan protein sources. If you take out the legumes and the gluten it still leaves quit a few options.

I like quinoa. My husband makes a mean moroccan tagine dish w/venison, vegetables, raisins, etc..OMG! I sent some home w/a friend and she said her boyfriend licked the inside of the ziploc baggie clean he liked it so much!! Anyway, instead of serving it with couscous I always make quinoa. It makes a perfect substitute.

I made this wonderful salad (my own variation of one in paper) that included:

Quinoa
flaked salmon (though chkn works too)
purple olives
sundried tomatoes
roasted red peppers
marinated artichokes
steamed asparagus tips
fresh chopped red bell pepper
parsley & basil fresh chopped
I probably added some of the GF Annie's Tuscan salad dressing. Everything is cut up into small pieces and tossed w/the quinoa.

There may have been more ingredients and I have the recipe somewhere.

A friend made a version of this one night when we ate at their house (had the salmon that night). I made the above version and we (me, hubby & m-i-l) took it to a Memorial Day celebration the next day. It is a cold salad and I packed it in the picnic cooler. It was wonderful.

Quinoa is wonderfully versatile.

I make a breakfast smoothie using rice protein and nutritional yeast on some mornings. My other favorite breakfasts are quinoa flakes (cooked like oatmeal) with chopped pecans and blueberries on it, or a Van's wheat free flax waffle with almond butter on it. I also make almond meal waffles and freeze them to use as a wrap for sandwiches of turkey or chicken salad. I think you can find gluten free foods a lot of places now if you are traveling. I like to have salmon or beef for dinner with lots of veggies. My nutrition tracker usually says that I have plenty of protein and I avoid dairy and peanuts also (but occasionally do eat eggs and some soy or bean products). Keep checking for more variety of protein foods that you can have. Quinoa is definitely a good thing to try. You can use it in place of rice in almost any recipe. My favorite dinner recipe, using it, is now quinoa and beef stuffed peppers. Have fun!

chicken or salmon salads.
Not the mayo kind, the leafy kind.

They have saved me from true doom at places like panera and TGIFridays. Good luck!

I'm going on vacation in two weeks and I'm new to gluten-free and dairy free. I'm going from California to New Jersery. I don't know if they will even carry the same brands that like and I know I can't take my food with me. I'm going to have to do a lot of eating out. HELP!

Can you eat light coconut milk? I've discovered that it is delicious. Cooking rice in it or the quinoa might give you a lovely change. It's so very hard to totally switch your life around.

I haven't found any great pain reduction yet from no gluten, but when I added wheat back for one meal as a test I felt awful for two solid days. Has anyone experienced skin problems due to wheat?

Remember that you create your own story every day, and that your story affects more people than you can possibly know. All of you are telling it forward, each time you post. We all learn and grow. Blessings.

Elen: I was doing a lot of online research and there were a few discussions about whether almonds counted as legumes or just nuts... I am happy to hear from you that they are nuts! Now I don't feel so bad about the almond rice bread I'm eating this week :)

Use2b: That book looks AMAZING, I am totally going to grab it and check it out!! thank you sooo much for that!

Tell: I've never looked into quinona but I will now that you've mentioned it. The gf thing is still really new for me and there's a lot I need to learn/research.

Hi. Can you have quinoa? It's GF and has all 9 essential amino acids, and so is a complete protein. It's yummy, and takes on flavors. I add herbs dProvence or onion or sometimes a bit of olive oil. It works with nuts. My guys, all wheat lovers, like quinoa a lot, and we have it a couple of times a week.

For many people nuts are an allergen. I don't know why I was told to not eat legumes when I was put on my elimination diet, but I was.

Most elimination diets include dairy, wheat (gluten), nuts, soy, legumes, eggs and probably other things I can't think of right now.

Basically, you can eat a limited amount of fruit, unlimited amount of vegetables, and occasionally meat.
Since I am blood type O I was allowed to eat eggs and egg based protein powder, but no meat.

I just depends upon how the doctor / nutritionist decides to tweak the elimination diet. You may have to call your doctors office and see if they have a print out of suggestions for the diet he has put you on. They may have suggestions on where they want your protein to come from and just forgot to give it to you.

Almonds aren't legumes. They grow on trees like walnuts and pecans. So I don't know what jury you're talking about, but they aren't botanists.

If you can have chicken then you can measure out however many ounces that you need and toss it in with a salad or soup.

It sounds like your doctor has put you on an elimination diet. If you reach a point where you want recipes that you can eat and do NOT include any of the common allergens then get a book called:

The MS Recovery Diet.
www.amazon.com/MS-Recovery-Diet-Ann-
Sa
wyer/dp/158333288X


There is a tv show called the Incurables and it featured Ann Sawyer and how she came to create the diet.

They are, but half of them are actually legumes. Like Peanuts. The jury is out on what Almonds actually are!

But the diet is not only GF, it is non-dairy, egg and legume-free. So, no soy, no yogurt, no eggs...

This pretty much leaves meat as the only option. I usually have meat with dinner every night, but how do I incorporate more protein into my daily meals?

I used to have a soy-protein shake for breakfast every morning, obviously that has been cut out. I thought I could do why protein until i found out that is milk-based.

I recently broke down and bought lunch meat, and before that I was bringing salmon stir-fry for lunch, but I am still not getting enough protein it seems and am sooooo tired all day.

Any suggestions? I am open to try anything new!
