Dr Oz Gluten Free Recipes

Dr Oz: Gluten-Free Diet Recipe

Dr Oz did a segment called The Gluten Myth: Is It Really Making Us Fat? (click here for the recap of that segment: Dr Oz: Gluten-Free Diet).  But Doctor Oz left a big question hanging – if 99% of people who have a Gluten Sensitivity or Celiac Disease do not even know that they have it, and for those people, Gluten can make their stomach bloated in addition to many other health issues, then how do we find out if we fall into the category of people who really should not be eating Gluten?  Dr Oz together with Dr Mark Hyman put together a 2 week Gluten-Free Diet Plan to help determine if Gluten is making you fat and causing other health issues.  If you have any of these Celiac Disease Symptoms (Dr Oz Celiac Disease Symptoms), or think you might have Gluten Intolerance, then try this diet for two weeks and see if your health problems get better.  Then you can slowly try adding back the Gluten into your diet to see if it makes your medical issues come back or worsen.

Dr Oz: Gluten-Free Breakfast Recipe

For breakfast, Doctor Oz and Dr Mark Hyman showed a delicious plate of a sweet potato hash topped with an egg.  In Dr Oz Gluten Free Recipesaddition, you can have a protein shake, but make sure it does not have gluten in it.  You can find Gluten-Free Protein Shakes made of things like Soy Protein or Rice Protein, and you can add yogurt to make it extra healthy and delicious.

Dr Oz: Gluten-Free Lunch Recipe

For lunch, Dr Mark Hyman said that you have to be careful.  A turkey wrap is a major no-no, and not just because of the Gluten in the wrap.  Believe it or not, there is even Gluten in many processed meats.  Also be careful with soups, because gluten can be used as a thickening agent.  Instead, try a Waldorf Salad with tofu, apples and walnuts or a vegetarian chili.

Dr Oz: Gluten-Free Dinner Recipe

For dinner, of course you cannot have pizza and pasta (not that Dr Oz would want us to have these dishes often in any case!).  You can have tilapia with potatoes for dinner or try quinoa with a chicken stirfry that includes cashews and broccoli.

Dr Oz: Gluten-Free Snack Recipe

Doctor Oz is always kind enough to include snacks in his diet plans, and there are actually a decent number of tasty Gluten-Free Snacks.  Try carrots with an olive tapenade, fruit, nuts, dark chocolate or even popcorn.

Dr Oz: Hidden Sources of Gluten

Since you want to avoid even a drop of gluten during Dr Oz’s 2 Week Gluten-Free Diet Plan, you have to beware of sneaky places that Gluten can be hidden.  For example, double check items like lipstick, toothpaste, playdough (which kids often eat!), the sticky portion of envelopes and stamps.  In addition, medications can contain fillers that have gluten, so you should ask your pharmacist about this.

Dr Oz: Celiac Disease Blood Test

Dr Oz asked Dr Mark Hyman what we should do after these two weeks if we still really are not sure if we have Celiac Disease or a Gluten Sensitivity.  Dr Hyman said that you can ask your doctor for a Celiac Panel Blood Test.  The Celiac Blood Test will test for high levels of certain antibodies including anti-gliadin, anti-endomysium and anti-tissue transglutaminase, because 9% of us have these antibodies which makes us get sick from Gluten.  Your doctor can also perform a test with a very small camera to look at the inside of your intestines and to take a tissue sample to run tests on.  Out of curiosity, how many of you have a Gluten Sensitivity or Celiac Disease?  And how did you find out about it?  And do you have any useful tips to share?  Please leave a comment below!

Comments to Dr Oz: Gluten-Free Recipes & 2 Week Gluten-Free Diet Celiac Test

  1. Antonia Murray says:

    I found out that I had celiac disease after years of having low iron. I found that celiac can lay dormant for a long time and something like a pregnancy can trigger it. I would rush home to have my ‘fix’ or crushed ice which I would chew. This is called pica. With the low iron, I would bruise very easily. During a routine exam, my doctor noticed all the bruises on my legs and arms. A few stratigic questions and a blood test later, I was diagnosed as having celiacs. Life is great and I no longer have to plan my life around ice and bathrooms.

  2. I was diagnosed with Coeliac’s disease at the start of 2011. Before that I would eat anything and everything and can’t seem to stop. I’ve been having very severe stomach pains and lots of other pain in my abdomen area for a long time. I try so hard to eat properly because of the fear the doctor has put into me, but get so dang frustrated. I try to bake bread but seem to mess it up. If I get it right then it goes bad fast. It’s like I can’t seem to keepa healthy diet and enjoy food. I have no patience for preparing “everything” that I eat and no will power. I’m 238 pounds and 5’4″ tall and way overweight according to the BMI index. Living in a remote region in Alaska makes it a bit incovenient to buy gluten-free products without bartering a seal and a whale for shipping. So… I . I dont know how much longer I can keep this up. I constantly tell myself that I’ve been eating this way for 41 years and have been miserable for just about that long that why does it matter if I’m gluten free? It’s an everyday struggle with life and I really have no support groups except what’s on this internet.

    I am living proof that gluten can make you sick. I suffered for 4 years after the birth of my youngest child with right sided abdominal pains and bloating. (Actually is more common for onset of gluten intolerance in mid life) I had every conventional test out there including, CT scans, Ultrasounds, lab tests and scopes in both ends to view what was happening. I had no definitive diagnosis, except what one doctor said was fatty liver disease ( I didn’t even have the telltale sign of the fat layer on the CT scan, he just based it on one liver blood test). I cut out almost all fat from my diet as instructed by the GI doc. That just made my pain worse because I was eating more grains to compensate for the reduced fat (mostly animal protein) intake. After suffering more, I finally I went on the internet and searched my symptoms. In my search I found a doctor in Connecticut with a website. She was a gluten specialist and it turns out nearly 25% of her gluten intollerant patients have only 2 symptoms. Right sided pain and a slightly elevated liver function test. Sure enough my ALT was slightly elevated. I went to an endocrinologist just to make sure this sounded legit (that was the only doctor I hadn’t seen yet) He gave me his blessing to start the diet and I immediately started a gluten free diet and within 3 weeks was pain free. I continue to this day, but once in a while I do cheat, but I suffer for it a couple days later. Have faith and give it a try. It could really help you get into control of your life. Also as a pleasant side effect of the gluten free life, I have lost 14 pounds without trying. I have never felt better in my 45 years.

  4. To test for Celiac/Intolerance/sensitivity is real easy. Have a Wheat IgG, Barley IgG, & Rye IgG blood tests done. No scope or biopsy needed.

    Ps ask for a copy of results, you’ll need it.
