hi! I'm vegan, and i just found out (after 2 negative bloodtests, 1 positive?!!) that i have celiac, so you're not alone. I've been GF before and the brand "ORGRAN" (its from Australia, or NZ, I think) sells a lot of things that are gluten free and low-calorie too. Good Luck.
Thank you both very much! That's wonderful info, and I'm going to check it out! I'm excited about the possibilities...I'd certainly be willing to go to any length to feel better, even if it means being extra careful,reading labels, etc. I'm just a little nervous about getting started, so thank you for the info!
That's an amazon.com link for gluten-free vegan cookbooks - I have the first one listed, by Susan O'Brien. I have a ton of cookbooks and found a lot of her recipes I already have incorporated into my routine. I wish I could say I've tried a new one, but I haven't yet. I wish they had the nutrition breakdown because I'm watching carbs. For that reason, I try to lean to more raw veggies. (try)
I'm not vegan btw; I'm always on the hunt for good recipes though.

I am not vegan but there are gluten free grains and beans to eat that make complete proteins. I can't seem to handle beans or dairy either so I do understand having to be innovative. Take it as a challenge. I am sure thankful for all the fruits and vegetables I can have! and that I feel better without the gluten and dairy foods. That in itself is worth the challenge of being creative with meals. Wishing you the best with your new menus and hoping you feel wonderful for the summer!
I have decided to go GF after a long history of bowel issues and depression. My mother has celiac, and though I've taken the blood panel test and it came out negative, I still have a gut (no pun intended) feeling that I am gluten intolerant. After monitoring my reactions to certain foods...it all points to gluten as the culprit. So I'm making the decision to try going GF - BUT I'm also vegan. As if it wasn't already "interesting" enough to find foods that are vegan AND good....Now I have the GF thing to consider. I have one GF vegan cookbook, although i haven't found it all that helpful. Does anyone have any advice? Are there any other GF vegans out there?
