I've recently been diagnosed with a chronic illness and it has been suggested that I try a new diet to help with the pain. I would love suggestions from people who are vegetarian and gluten and dairy free. This is a new one for me, so I don't even know where to begin.

Sorry about the health issues. I am sure you will get some help here. there are some really great cooks here! Good Luck!

Thanks! I hope so because I'm at a total loss. I'm seeing lots of salads in my future, but I don't know what to do for protein. I think the lack of bread is my biggest issue so far. I love wraps for lunch, so that's a bummer.

Jenny - I was a vegetarian for many years (17), and unknowingly had food intolerances that caused my chronic illness (milk, grains, and sugar). I learned a lot on my way to recovery from many "incurable illnesses," and the most important thing I learned is that I am not suited to a vegetarian diet. I had to give it up to become well. Some people just can't digest vegetarian foods, and I am one of them. Please feel free to check my recipe box for gluten-free/dairy-free recipes, but know that I am no longer a vegetarian.

I strongly recommend that you do a 5-day juice fast to see if food intolerances are at the root of your problem (4 days is the standard in Environmental Medicine, but it took 10 days of juice fasting to clear my fibromyalgia). The worse you are, the longer it takes for food-incited symptoms to clear.

What exactly is the juice fast?

Also, thank you so much for all the info! Great reading for sure!

A juice fast is when you consume as much fresh homemade juice as you want and nothing else. If you are like I was and extremely reluctant to give up being a vegetarian (I absolutely hated the idea), the good news is that a juice fast is vegetarian.

As far as sandwiches go there are a lot of gluten free bread products in the market, at least in my area. Some are good, some not so much. Good luck with this. I would go crazy if I couldn't have sandwiches all the time. They are my absolute favorite food group!

Do some reading up on vegetarian proteins. Eggs, beans, soy substitutes are a few. I know there are many more, but I'm not a vegetarian and am having a brain freeze at the moment.

Quinoa is a great gluten-free vegetarian option and this soup is delicious.

Oct. 8, 2013 1:53 pm (This used to be on All Recipes and I like it better than the version on AR now) I use veggie broth. And you could top with guacamole or plain avocado slices instead of cheese.
