Gluten Free Diet

Do you have celiac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) and wondering which food can I really eat?  You have been told not to eat food high in gluten because it can result in symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea or stomach pain if you have celiac; itchy rashes or blistering skin if you have DH. These effects occur because gluten from food sources will interfere with absorption of other foods in your small intestine. Also certain patients might just be allergic to wheat, this manifest as rash/hives, sneezing, watery eyes, running nose, itching or swelling.

So where do you begin if you have any of these medical conditions, let me first start by explaining what a gluten is so you know what to avoid. Gluten is a form protein found mainly in grains like wheat, oats, rye and barley.


So what food items should you avoid if you are on gluten free diet?

    • Bread and Starches: All breads, pastas, pretzels, crackers, tortillas, rice cakes, noodles, cereals, or any product made from wheat, oats, rye or barley should be avoided.
    • Dairy: Cheeses, ice creams, yogurts, malted milk, chocolate milk, hot cocoa.
    • Meat: Corned beef, breaded meat or fish, food from flour or containing processed vegetable protein.
    • Vegetables and fruits: Creamed vegetables, vegetables in a sauce, breaded vegetables, prepared fruits made with thickeners (sauces, syrup or jellies).
    • Desserts:  Cakes, cookies, pies and pastries made from wheat, rye, barley or oats. Ice cream cones and fruit pies with flour.
    • Beverages: Beer, ale, malted milk, Ovaltine®, root beers and wine.
    • Soups and sauces: Soup made with noodles, rice syrup, sauces or gravies made with flour, seasoning mixes, and bouillon cubes.

What are some of the acceptable food you can eat if you are on gluten free diet?

  • Breads and starches:  Breads, cereals, or pastas that are made from corn, potato, rice or bean flours are good for consumption. These includes: corn tortillas, popcorn, cornflakes, potato, rice, cornmeal and rice cereals.
  • Plain milk, meat, fish, fruits and vegetables are good to eat too.
  • Butter, margarine, whipping cream, cream, and peanut butter can also be eaten.
  • Coffee and tea

Example of meal plan with acceptable foods:

Breakfast: Fruit /Juice, Cereal (rice), Toast (potato/rice), Margarine, Eggs or Milk.

Lunch: Meat, Fish, Potato/corn bread, Vegetable and/or salad, or Fruit.

Dinner: Roasted beef, broiled chicken, rice, baked potato, green beans or salad.
