Hey, all. I went vegan a bit more than 2 years ago to help my IBS. Well, it worked, kinda. I am now getting tested for celiac and waiting for the results.

Well, my boyfriend's doc told him he probably has IBS and should try gluten-free. We LOVE carbs. I LOVED pasta until I got sick from it recently. I am stuck because I don't know how I can survive without bread, which is the only one I am struggling with right now.

My main issue is, every time I baked my own bread I hated it. Does anyone know of an OK brand of vegan and gluten-free bread? I will have to bake if I need to, and I thought about investing in a breadmaker.

Also, any tips or sites for a newbie would be great, but I am totally clueless and don't know where to start.

i'm a HUGE fan of Sami's bread, but if you're super sensitive to wheaties you might wanna stay away as it's run on the same belt as wheat. i used to have IBS before i went gluten-free and i'm a-okay with the Sami's bread. not all their goodies are vegan, but many of the millet & flax line is (i order online through them and they ship it pretty darn fast) - and their bagels (and the vegan spinach pies) make me most happyfaced: http://www.samisbakery.com/

I'm also semi-new to gluten-free eating, started about 6 months ago. I too get sad about not being able to have bread, specifically bagels. I like brown rice and quinoa breads toasted with nut butter, but it's really not the same as normal bread for me. What's worked for me to keep me away from gluten products is just to distract myself with food I already love that happens to be gluten-free. For me this means potatoes, rice and rice noodles. I do buy brown rice pasta sometimes, but it's pricey and I miss my semolina pasta. Getting excited about normal foods that happen to be gluten-free helps me forget about the whole missing gluten thing, whereas eating special gluten-free products tends to remind me that I'm missing out on the "real" thing. In time I've gotten pretty used to eating this way, so I no longer crave toast every at 3 like I used to.

Best of luck to you!

Thanks! I love rice noodles and potatoes. I usually go a few weeks without buying bread but always get sucked back in. Though the last time I bought regular bread, I noticed it took us 2 weeks to use it up! That's mainly because my boyfriend got my toaster oven dirty with chocolate (the milk-based kind) and he forgets to clean it. Plus I'm having a hard time scrubbing it off. So my craving for toast is diluted when I think that I can't toast the bread.
I'm still a carb fiend, though, and it's so hard.
