    I've been ill for the past week so i need to cut gluten out of my diet to see if its something to do with that but i have no idea what i can actually eat!

    At the moment all i'm eating is pasta and salad but i'm gonna have to cut pasta out from tomorrow. I can't just live on salad.

    If i have to i will eat meat, but i would prefer not to. And i'm lactose intolerant so dairy products are not an option.

    Any suggestions? Something cheap would be preferable as i'm a student. But anything would do.

    Thanks

    what makes you think it's the gluten causing the probs? If you've just been ill for a week isn't it far more likely that you've picked up a bug?

    :yep: Just poke about in your supermarket for gluten-free pasta (I'm sure I sure a bag of it in Co-op last week). Not sure about bread - my friend gets it by prescription or something I think.

    why would it? I really really doubt that this is the case. You need to see a professional doctor/nutritionist.

    We had a friend come over for dinner the other day who was gluten intolerant and vegan. It was a nightmare to think of something to cook for her! Sorry, that probably didn't help.

    But yeah, as someone else said, get gluten-free pasta and bread (although they taste like ****** compared to the real things). Rice is fine, umm try rice cakes? They're really low-calorie too. Umm, most vegitarian meals will be fine. Try recipes with lentils.

    Baked potatoes.

    Vegetarian shepherd's pie (make it with Quorn mince and loads of veggies).

    Wheat-free pasta (my mum's gluten intolerant, but I don't know if this is vegan) with veggie tomato-based sauces.

    I think rice noodles are diary free but you'd have to check (you can make soup with vegetable stock, quorn/tofu pieces and lots of veggies again).

    The last time i was like this i cut out gluten and i was fine so i'm hoping its the same thing.
    The doctor would tell me to do exaclty the same thing, its what i was told last time so going to see one would be a complete waste of time.

    I always find out i have new allergies or intolerances so its very likely it is the case.

    Quorn products aren't usually vegan as stupid as it sounds otherwise finding something too eat would be easy.

    Soup sounds like a good idea, but its really difficult to cook with the cooker we have. It takes over half hour just to make pasta so i'm not sure about making soup on it!
    I'm not that keen on tofu, but if i'm hungry i'll eat anything.

    Thanks for your help

    My mam's got coeliac disease, so I'm used to seeing what she eats. The gluten free bread isn't really edible unless you toast it, since the gluten is what binds it together, so it just crumbles to bits and you choke on it. The cakes and biscuits are quite nice, I have to admit, but they can be pricey. Make sure you get plenty of fruit and veg, and meals like baked potato with a filling might get you by.

    If you're willing to eat meat if you have to, then why not the eggs in quorn? (unless you're allergic to them too)

    Gluten-free bread isn't really that bad if you get the right one and heat it up before you use it. You'd have to be diagnosed with Coeliac before getting it on prescription. I get it free because I'm diabetic as well so dunno how much it is on prescription... But rice is about the cheapest natural gluten-free product for dinner. Tesco do gluten-free vegan food i think.

    i'm off gluten most of the time because I am intolerant to it. Tesco have a good range of their won brand stuff. The pizza base is good, so you can make you own. I recommend Terence Stamp bread, and Tru Free custard creams or cakes.

    If you want to know more, just ask
