For those people who wish to follow certain dietary lifestyles like living vegetarian and gluten free, there may be some study and research needed to discover recipes and products that can work. At first glance the diet itself seems to be extremely restrictive and there is some concern from some camps about healthy nutrition. It is certainly possible to combine both good nutrition and good taste in gluten free vegetarian recipes.
You do need to realize that at present it is difficult to find premade foods that can be acceptable in both vegetarian and gluten free contexts. There are some available at health food stores, but even there you will have to make a concerted effort to find them. More rice based products for cooking and snacking are becoming easier to find. The big problem with combining these two meal plans is the fact that a vegetarian diet is built on many gluten containing products.
You will have to give up your wheat pasta and you can use quinoa or rice based pastas as your replacement. These both have a different flavor from the wheat pasta, but are very delicious and lend themselves to many cooking styles. Avoid the soy sauce and the Worcestershire sauce, you can find the wheat free blend of tamari sauce and you can use a product called Liquid Aminos for extra flavor. You will no longer be able to enjoy couscous, but you can replace it with quinoa. If you enjoy a hot cereal in the morning you can use grits to replace your former oatmeal. Most of your tortillas you will find in stores and restaurants are flour based and you can make a single change over to the corn tortillas and be fine. For those people who have less severe reactions to wheat and glutens, you may wish to try some of the bread that is made with sprouted grain products. This works for some people and will provide you with true bread flavor and the sprouts increase the digestive enzymes that you need to process them.
