I need suggestions for lunches that I can take to college with me, in my backpack, that don't require an ice pack - I just don't have room. The lunch will be consumed within four hours or so. [more inside]
I'm interested in main dish recipes for someone who is vegan and also avoids:
- nightshades (white potatoes, eggplants, bell peppers, etc.)
- acidic foods (tomatos, citrus)
I've recently cut wheat and dairy products out of my diet, and need some creative ideas/recipes for both breakfast and lunch. Vegetarian and meat/fish-containing suggestions are equally welcome. The higher-protein, the better. Easy recipes please since my cooking-fu is minimal. Since I eat lunch at work a couple of days a week, I want something easily portable (by bike) and ideally not requiring reheating (there's a microwave at work, but it's a bit inconvenient for me to use). Breakfast has no such constraints since I eat it at home (I usually eat scrambled eggs for breakfast, but this is getting old). Bonus points for recipes containing tahini, since I was recently given some excellent organic tahini but the usual method of using it as a dip with bread is obviously out.
No gluten, soy, casein (milk), or eggs for me. Sad face. Please share your amazing recipe sources for somebody with a bunch of allergies. [more inside]
Gluten-free Thanksgiving. My youngest sister was diagnosed with Celiac disease at the beginning of this year. She will be coming home for Thanksgiving and I'd like to make some gluten-free dishes for our family pot-luck style dinner. The interweb is chock-full of gluten-free recipes, but I don't know which ones are good and which are just meh. Please share your favorite gluten-free Thanksgiving-y recipes! [more inside]

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]

Need gluten-free, milk-free delicious cookies! [more inside]
Any suggestions for a nice meal to serve to dinner guests (four diners total) later this week? But there are catches... 1) We just bought our house, and don't have a stove yet; we have a Crock Pot, a toaster oven, and a microwave. So no meat browning or onion sauteing. 2) The meal must be wheat- and gluten-free. 3) No seafood. We've had pretty limited success with the slow-cooker... recipes sound delicious, but end up tasting like a whole lotta nothin.
