      • Better isn't emotionally better. My life is being taken over...
        By GF Lover · Posted
        You're all over the place huh....understand that perfectly.  I was quite sick when diagnosed and was afraid to eat... Anything.  Every time I ate before gluten-free hurt.  I would have pain before I even finished the meal.  Food = pain so I ate very little.  I started gluten-free with juicing for a month or two.  That got nourishment in me and no more pain.  The old pros on the forum got me thru starting to eat real food again.  Next problem, couldn't cook.  Never liked too.  They introduced me to simple things.  The crock pot became my friend.  I still eat simple meals.  I eat very little processed food.  If I want a sweet, I make it myself.  Same with waffles, etc.  Soon gluten will be a nuisance and not an enemy, trust me.  It is exhausting worrying about your food so much.  Don't worry about arsenic, soy, GMOs, just worry about clean eating.  The rest takes care of itself.  Life will continue, you'll get sick, maybe add a disease as you age but that is life.  I've survived cancer and have 5 AI diseases.  I don't sweat the small stuff :).   One day at a time is something we have all had to learn.  Eat foods in moderation.  Most of us couldn't handle dairy in the beginning.   Some symptoms go quickly, some take a year or two and some never leave.  That's just how it is. Live your life, don't live your food. Colleen 
      • Brown or white rice?
        By GF Lover · Posted
        No reason not to mix it up and eat both .  For white I prefer Jasmine rice.  For brown, any long grain will do.  If your a salt hound like me I make a bunch of Jasmine and pour in a large can of 100% tomato sauce and some pink hymalayan salt.  Kind of soupy but kinda  It freezes well in serving sizes.  Adding chicken to it is good too.  I like to keep things simple  I throw a whole chicken in the crock pot and it basically debones itself.  Again, freezes well.   Colleen

        I eat short grain brown because I like the flavor.
      • Brown or white rice?
        By DandelionH · Posted
        Just curious who cooks brown and who cooks white rice?
        I was raised on brown so feel it has more 'flavour' but my partner eats sushi rice with everything and now I've gotten into it I don't mind it at all. Nifty texture!

        There's a lot going 'round about how grains are bad and I disagree but am shifting over to the side of their nutrients perhaps being unavailable to us because of the phytates and what not. AKA no nutritional difference between white and brown grain as long as they aren't eaten in isolation?

        I'm trying to eat well and get my health back 100% so if brown rice is packed with actual available vitamins I'm all for it. But white rice is easier to fit in more calories through... Super-digestible too...

        Juuuust curious about your valuable opinions ...
      • If You Are Dairy Intolerant, What Are Your Symptoms?
        By DandelionH · Posted
        Instead of depression I get angry and restless. About an hour after eating it. It took me a long time to realise and somebody else pointed it out initially. It was also a bit confusing because I felt so euphoric to have another food back in the menu that I feel super optimistic somewhere in amongst the anger. Which makes for a mega-moodswing... 
        I get chestpain (maybe it's heartburn, I don't know), anxiety and frustration and if I've eaten more than a bit I get a migraine about 3 hours later. Every time. Goats. Sheeps. Cultured. Aged. Not aged. Not cultured. Whatever. Migraine. Epic.
        I usually can't sleep, too.
        I get no GI symptoms though. Nothing...
        It's funny now how consistent that reaction is yet how unnoticed it went for a long time. Amongst the other crappy feelings... Maybe I'll try just butter, though. Maybe it's the proteins...
        I hope dairy can be included again soon but also do acknowledge we don't 'need' it and was just reading a great article in the (mainstream!) New Scientist about how it messes with us unless it's yoghurt or cheese. Intrigue. Tasty and practical intrigue...
