Looking for Gluten-free and Casein-free Recipes/ Ideas

Hi, everyone! We are going to try the Gluten-Free,Casein-Free diet with my son. He is on the autism spectrum and also has some nutritional issues. I am looking for two things: recipes/ meal ideas and behavior issues that should diminish with the diet. We want to track his behavior to see if the diet is working or not. Has anyone else tried his diet? Any tips for us?

We went organic a couple of years ago in response to my hubbys constant illnesses. He didn't eat well in the first 28 years of life. His mom didn't cook much and he ate a lot of processed foods. Whole food market has many products that will help you with your diet. It is a little more expensive, but we find we eat less because we are getting the nutrition our bodies need and not the chemicals and stuff. We don't always adhere - we love Chick fil A, but we eat organic 90% of the time and my allergies are better and he is better as well.

Hope this helps!

A friend of mine has celiac disease. She started a blog. http://gfdfw.blogspot.com/
If you want to contact her you can call the Star Telegram, I am sure she would talk to you. I just made a vegan lasagna using brown rice noodles and substituting tofu with vegan Parmesan for ricotta. Ok, I had some real cheese there also, but you don't need to. Best of Luck. D.

Hi S.,

I would recommend checking out the website:

Healthy-Family.org

It has tons of wonderful recipes that should suit your diet needs, as well as an awesome forum (there is specifically one thread titled "gluten-free and casein-free diet info"). Hope this helps!

Best of luck.

We have been gluten -free since my son was 2 years old ( now 16). We still mess up every once in a while.Lots of hidden gulten in products.He loves Peanutbutter Panda puffs for breakfast, I also use it to make a trail mix with other gluten free ingredients. the Panda puffs are available at Kroger in the health food section. He also likes Amy's frozen pizza the rice crust one is gluten free it only has a cheese topping so we add some other gluten free toppings to it.(This is great to take with you to a birthday party where they will be serving pizza so your child does not feel left out) I make my own pasta using a recipe from Gluten free gourmet and my kitchen aid mixer I have the pasta attachment. Although some times I use dry pasta from the international section of the food store it states that it is gluten free. Good luck
