Gluten, dairy-free camp cooking

I'm going camping for a few days, yay! We're splitting cooking duties with another couple going, but they're celiac and lactose intolerant. How do we feed them? Added challenge: we don't have access to a cooler (that's not likely to change). I appreciate any ideas you have, MeFites!

Moscow on a very restrictive diet.

I'm travelling to Russia at the end of the week for 5 nights, staying with friends of friends in Moscow. Finding things to eat for me is difficult at the best of times. My main restriction: Totally gluten-free diet (i.e. no wheat, rye, barley or oats), and no xanthan gum or similar (i.e. no gluten-free breads). Additional restrictions which I can bend at variable levels of digestive cost: No dairy; No onion or other alliums; Low fibre (no beans or coconut). [more inside]

I need a map. A FODMAP map.

So after all of the recent hubbub about how gluten may not be the culprit in many cases of indigestion/discomfort, I learned for the first time about FODMAPs and realized, "Wait a minute... I have gotten painfully bloated from eating ALL of those high FODMAP foods!" BUT. When I search the internet for FODMAP resources I find a lot of woo and a lot of really bland recipes. Is there a way to try a low FODMAP diet without dying of boredom? [more inside]

Can I make a gluten free orzo analogue by pummeling other gf pasta

I'm wondering if anyone has tried making a gf orzo type thing by taking a bag of rotini or some type of other gf pastas and whacking it with a mallet into little pieces. Will they stick together? Will you get the same effect? Will it suck? Failing that, anyone have an Orzo substitute? White rice? Brown Rice? Forbidden Rice?

Negative Celiac blood test, but positive need to give up doughnuts?

I love doughnuts--and never turning down a host's refreshments--so hard. And I don't want to be "that person." But I need to feel better, so I'm looking for experiences (and help cutting through the science and the woo) on giving up gluten (or not) even with a negative Celiac blood test. [more inside]

Recommend a butane stove for regular indoor use

I live in a shared house with 6 people and a rotating crew of guests. I'm celiac and I get really sick even with minute exposure to gluten. Since I was diagnosed, my roommates and I have cordoned off an area of the kitchen for my use. I also have my own set of pans, which I keep in a lidded plastic bin. But I'm still not feeling 100% better. Because we have so many guests who might not see my "gluten-free" signage, and because my roommates sometimes bake with wheat flour (which can stay in the air 24 hours or so after baking), I feel like the best solution is to set up an affordable personal kitchen in my bedroom.

How do I bake some gluten free bread?

I love Canyon House 7 grain bread and the Udis Whole Grain Bread (Gluten Free, both of them). I love them, wonderful breads, the only trouble is it's hard to justify spending $6+ a week on bread that is gluten free. I have a gluten intolerance so I need to eat gluten free. I love to cook/bake, an have lots of flours and mixes. What's the best recipe that is most similar to Udis (any one) or Canyon House that is gluten free? I am looking for bread that doesn't fall apart, looks at tastes like sandwhich bread. Any Ideas? [more inside]

Share Your Grainless Recipes!

Help my sanity - share your grainless vegetarian recipes! I can't tolerate any grains, rice, oat, barley, wheat, corn, quinoa, etc. This means that traditional "gluten free" replacements are out of the question. I'm starting to hit the wall in terms of being able to deal with it, and I need some variety in my diet! Right now, I'm avoiding eating because it's so disheartening, and I want the joy back in meal times. A sample of what I eat currently under the fold. [more inside]

Wheat as an allergen catalyst?

I don't seem to be allergic to wheat, but eating wheat makes me allergic to many other things, including uncooked fruits, nuts and vegetables (except citrus), general seasonal allergies, animals, etc. When I stop eating wheat, my allergies to ALL of these things go away.
