Ok so I'm not starving, but I am Southern. Raised in South Mississippi mostly and a few years here and there in Arkansas and Louisiana.
I'm not typical Southern as far as my diet goes. I don't fry anything except occasionally some green tomatos, some okra, and catfish. And I mean rarely (maybe like, once a year). Don't really eat a lot of bread. Period. But I gotta have an occasional piece of cornbread to go with my beans and greens-lol.
I do love dairy (low fat of course). I don't cook with lard, butter, or vegetable oil. But I am not a health nut.
Blah, blah, blah...I'll get to the point:
Looking for some Southerners with Celiac's that can help me replace some things without totally changing my favorite cultural recipes (Ooh, I wonder if Paula Deen will go gluten free for a few episodes?). I mean come on, it's Southern cookin?!
Some things that will be hard for me to do without:
cream of wheat
an occasional biscuit
homemade mac and cheese
casseroles (hello! for "dinner on the grounds")
I probably could go totally vegetarian, though, and be perfectly happy...if I were still in the South where the fresh veggies are; instead I'm in Northeast Wyoming.
Found a health food store and bought a few things. But a lot of that stuff just seems too herbal for me. Kinda scared it's gonna make me extremely gassssy;p
Need some help please.
