No Wheat, No Dairy, No Sugar!

Hi,

My husband and I have to go on a wheat free, dairy free and sugar free diet for about a month or so and I am stuck for dinner ideas and would appreciate any help I can get from you guys.

So far I have the following meals planned out but other than that I am stuck and they seem to be a repetition of the same ingredients cooked in a different way!

(as for meat we are only allowed chicken)

- Prawns, Quinoa, Pumpkin
- Green beans cooked with chicken and some tomato paste (it's a greek recipe)
- Salmon, Carrots, Baked Potatoes
- Chicken, Carrots, Brown Basmati Rice
- Black eyed beans
- Trout, Potatoes
- Jacket Potato
- Omelette
- Spagetti made with rice flour
- Lentils

As you can see there are a lot of potatoes on my menu!

Mashed cauliflower can be used in place of mashed potatoes.
I've also made a roasted pumpkin and potato mash. I roasted diced pumpkin with garlic, olive oil and rosemary. Boiled the potatoes. Mashed it together and it was fabulous. It didn't need the usual butter or cream you would normally use in mashed potatoes.

Hi fluffballs,

I like this range for dairy substitutes although their cheese needs work. I have made entirely dairy free cheesecakes and dishes like spinach pie with them.

You can also get entirely dairy free margarines for baking and making dishes.
Have you tried pumpkin fettuccini with gluten free pasta?
Soups and stews can also be made gluten/dairy/sugar free.
Curries thickened with a little rice flour and coconut cream and served with pilaf rice.

The possibilities are endless, just have a look through this site and look at the recipes then think of substitutions you can make in order to bring them into line with your diet.

Good luck.

Asian stir fry with rice or rice noodles would fit the bill.
There are some delicious curries you could make too, served with rice: Chicken, egg, or vegetarian.
Polenta served with braised mushrooms and cabbage and some roasted chicken.
Risotto! Just leave out the parmesan, it will still be yummy.
You might like to try this recipe? http://www.jamieoliver.nl/bloggers/view … p?id=58460

Good luck!

Thank you for your advice people. I guess it's just a matter of substituting one ingredient for another. It just seems very daunting now at the start!

Once you get into the hang of it, then it becomes second nature.
Hang in there it won't be easy at first but once you have learned what products to buy you can then let your imagination go to work and make some delicious things.

Re: No Wheat, No Dairy, No Sugar!

Good luck with it Fluffballs.
It is partly a problem with how our brains are set up, I think. Just like when you are told NOT to think of a white horse, you immediately get the image of one. Our brains don't hear the 'NO'. So when we are trying to think of 'no wheat, no dairy, no sugar' the only thing that comes to mind is a cheesecake!
You will get there (I have done it with cutting out simple sugars, so I know what a hassle it is). cool

White meats are healthier than red, chicken is an obvious as long as it is free range/organic. Rabbit is also free of nasty fats. Eggs only twice a week (2 and not fried).

Cheeses have to be of low fat.
