Hi Suzanne!

I have celiac and my daughter has a wheat intolerance. I have recipes on my blog www.nummyformytummy.com that are simple and inexpensive.

Thanks

Use your favorite search engine to look up the Paleo (or caveman or dinosaur) diet. It's anti grain and processed food. Some of the recipes are very tasty and almost all of them are gluten free and only use natural sugars.

You should check out the book "The Beginning to a Gluten Free Lifestyle" @ Amazon.com. It's a great beginner guide to Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Dairy Free and Egg Free. It has easy recipes too. It's awesome!

Here's a link to all of my gluten-free, sugar-free recipes (http://glutenfreerecipebox.com/category/...), but not all are diabetic-friendly, such as the ones made with dates (high in sugar) and the ones that are high in starch. You can always introduce xylitol a little at a time (tastes just like sugar, without any bitterness). The birch derived is healthier than the corn derived type, as it most corn is GMO (genetically modified).

Hello Susan,

I recently started trying to cook mostly gluten-free (my best friend is intolerant and eats here most nights) and I always try to keep the sugar to a minimum (I was pre-diabetic for years). With most recipes I will substitute regular flour with brown rice flour (which I buy in the bulk section of my local store, and is actually cheaper than regular flour). The favorite around the house is beef stew, is your son able to have wine in food? I'm not sure, but it's not a lot, and it may not raise his blood sugar much at all. Here is the recipe, it's for a slow cooker, btw...

Chop 5-6 lbs. boneless chuck roast to 1 inch chunks, dry with paper towels, then salt and pepper them. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan (I use a cast-iron skillet) and brown half the meat on all sides, then add to the slow cooker. Heat 2 more tbsp and brown the remaining meat, and add to the slow cooker. Heat 2 more tbsp oil in the pan on med heat, cook 2 diced onions and 1/4 tsp salt till softened (about 5 minutes), then add 3 diced garlic cloves and about 15 seconds. Stir in one cup dry red wine (I use Marlot) and 2 tbsp tomato paste, scrapping up any browned bits. Simmer until wine has reduced by half (about 3 minutes) then add to the slow cooker. Add 2 cups chicken broth, 1 1/2 cups beef broth, and 1 tsp thyme to the slow cooker. Add 1 lb peeled and chopped carrots, and 2 lbs halved red potatoes just submerged in the liquids. Cook on high for 6 to 7 hours.

When the meat is tender, remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon to a cutting board. While those are cooling slightly, whisk 1/2 cup brown rice flour with 1/2 cup beef broth, stir into the stew. Cut the potatoes to desired size and add back to the stew. You can add a cup of frozen peas if you would like here. Continue to cook until it no longer tastes of flour, 30 minutes or so.

You can also add any other veggies or herbs that your family likes to make it your own. I hope you guys enjoy it :D

I recently have started selling Wildtree Products, not only is it fun, easy and yummy. They are all natural, no msg, no preservatives, or additives, low sodium, low sugar and they are not processed. Which means healthy simple and good for you. My kids 4 1/2 and 3 love the food. They don't even notice the change in our eating habit. Which is great. We also have a "GLUTEN FREE" line. I just love it. Every show I do I make $75-$100 upfront and I get commission from the company. The nice thing about this is that you don't have to have inventory on hand. You simply do a party and place an order. Just think you can grocery shop from your computer. WOOOO HOOO. We are not just dips and party items. We actually carry meals that are simple and easy. Such things as Mexican skillet, meat loaf mix, alfredo, spaghetti, and even breakfast. I could go on all day, but if you are interested in learning more about WIldtree let me know. www.mywildtree.com/brendamass

Try going to www.wisdomnutrition.info and www.wisdomnutrition.blogspot.com. You may find this site very helpful for your son. You'll be supprised by her story alone and I think you'll feel rather optemistic after checking into it all. Have fun ! :D! Life is beautiful even with so many restrictions on what we eat. I have had tons of fun finding new foods. :) Good luck

Look up Suncrystals. I demo'd it it has somthing called stevia in it that doesn't mess with your blood sugar. You can get it at walmart. Also if your little one likes strawberry shortcake, walmart carries a sugar free strawberry mix and sugar free mini angelfod cakes, I make it for my dad, he's diabetic.
