That does look pretty nasty. And what about the fried green beans? Do you suppose people actually eat that stuff? :blink:

Hi Leah: I saw you are posting, I am eating the green m&m's! :D:D:D Throw in an orange now and then

No, cheese fries with bacon and downing in real ranch dressing sounds good in a "but it would probably kill me" sort of way...

Deep fried mac and cheese just goes against all that is holy :P

Hmm.. deep fried mac and cheese looks exactly like something I would want to eat :lol:

And that leads me to why I'm thankful to be a celiac... No matter how much I want to put junk like that in my body, it's not an option...

I don't think I would want to go to dinner with people who would be ordering Fridays new appetizers though. That would be rough...

How the heck do you fry mac n' cheese?!!! Or better yet, why? LOL!!

I do however miss the mac n' cheese from Chat n' Chew. It's this place in NYC that I used to go with my friends all the time. It has total comfort food, and it was just out place we would go when we just wanted a laid back girls night. Actually it is where I told my best girlfriends I was engaged and asked them to be my bridesmaids! I have dreams about their mac n' cheese. :(

Kris, you can still have cheese fries, just make them yourself at home. If you're in the US, you can use Ore-Ida fast food fries, Kraft shredded cheddar cheese, Hormel black label bacon, chopped green onions, and Kraft brand ranch dressing on the side. You can also add chili, I know there are a few safe canned brands. It may not be as simple as going out and ordering it, but this way you can season it as you like and it will taste better.

Heh, if the pasta didn't kill me, the cheese would. :P

Nikki - macaroni and cheese is known as a classic American comfort food....can be very good and creamy and then there's this horrible boxed stuff - ugh - with no real cheese on that one, just a powdered facsimile that emulsifies with water added......ewwww....but the REAL mac and cheese - yummy - - -

DEEP FRIED - - how sick is that? Can you imagine the fat grams and the calories.....people eat this without thinking about it at all and then......GASTRIC BYPASS :o

I'm STILL not glad I'm a Celiac though. :angry:

Hi Susan: Haven't seen you on the boards in a while. I agree with you, deep fried mac and cheese :unsure: Who would of thunk it! I don't think I would of eaten it before, what's next deep fried ??? Help me out here! :lol::lol::lol:

Still not glad I am a celiac either!!!! :(:( What I miss is being able to grab something to eat on the go, or maybe it's the donuts that don't sink, or the bread that tastes light and fluffy, might be the milky way candy bars I never craved before but do now, guess it could be the cookie dough ice cream, don't know different moods different foods :ph34r:

Ya I've seen those commercials for their new appetizers. That kind of stuff is exactly what is wrong with how people eat in this country! Macaroni and cheese isn't that great for you in the first place, then they go throw it in deep fryer.... :blink: why? Why don't we just go back to the kitchen and grab a cup of oil out of the deep fryer and drink it! Blah! I'm with penguin even if I could eat it, I wouldn't yuck....

Yea, imagine the people eating the fried green beans thinking they're killing two birds with one stone -- a veggie and a grain!! :lol:

They deepfry so much now ... I think my kids told me they were deep-frying Twinkies at the fair!

I'd just like a McGriddle, I miss our traditional Saturday morning breakfast, and in the casein dept. I think I'd do about anything (except get sick!) for a triple grande organic latte from Starbucks.

On the bright side, we're making new traditions -- hubby cooked brunch today! And I'm eating healthier and not pushing myself to the limit all the time. Sometimes it takes losing your health to realize that you really don't need to do it all.

Well, Elvis's favorite snack, according to longtime lore, was deep-fried peanut-butter sandwiches. :huh: Now, sickening as that initially sounds, I think I would have to try one of those given the chance!

haven't we all learned if you can eat it, someone somewhere can deep fry it. like milky ways, or snickers, or onions, or pig skin, etc.

Yuck!! Deep fried mac & cheese and green beans? :(

Although, we used to go to brunch at this place on the other side of town that had a dish called "Pasta Salvi" which was basically fettucini alfredo that was deep fried into these squares and then topped with some marinara sauce....it was heavenly. I ate it before I knew what it was (on a brunch buffet), but once I went there, I couldn't not eat it..LOL (at least until I went gluten-free ;) )

I tried to post to this thread yesterday, but my computer went bonkers... just had to share this tidbit:

Looking to emulate the success of Chicken McNuggets and fried mozzarella sticks, the group is hoping to inject some red meat into the American snack food diet with cheeseburger fries. The fries, which look like a squat version of standard French fries, are made of a meat-and-cheese compound that tastes ? as the name suggests ? like a cheeseburger.

Breaded, then deep-fried and served with ketchup or barbecue sauce, cheeseburger fries have found their way onto menus in several states including Nebraska, Minnesota and Texas since June. There is also a version being made available to public school cafeterias.

"The challenge is getting people to think of other ways to eat beef," said Betty Hogan, director of new product development for the [National Cattlemen's Beef Association].

Regular cheeseburgers aren't fatty enough!!???

Also there's somebody at the Texas State Fair that makes "Fried Coke"...

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hey, I am a member of that forum (not very active though).  But that's exactly how I eat.  They base their diet on this site: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ A year after my celiac disease diagnosis, my GP tells me that I am prediabetic via an email.  Instructs me to improve my diet and exercise more.  What?  I exercise more that most my age.  I run, swim, bike and teach a few exercise classes.  Change my diet?  I am gluten free.  I can not give up my gluten-free goodies!  It was asking for too much.  But I did know about celiac disease and the connection to Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 runs in my family.  So I found Jenny's site.  It made sense and I continued to research more.  Bought a Walmart meter, started testing my foods and found that "snap" I had huge spikes!  Kept meticulous data for a month and went back to my doctor.  He agreed.  I am insulin resistant and the writing's on the wall.  How to stop or slow the progression?  A low carb high fat diet.  Within three days, my blood sugar readings were normal.  Keep tracking and went back to my doctor who was amazed.  He told me to keep doing what I had been doing -- and it's been 2-1/2 years! Here's a recent study from the University of Alabama: https://www.uab.edu/news/innovation/item/4997-low-carb-diet-recommended-for-diabetics Sometimes you just have to take things into your own hands.  If I had just cut down on sugar, I 'd be on drugs and insulin and struggling to keep my feet from being amputated.  That's an exaggeration (not really), but really who cares if my foot gets chopped off?  My doctor?  He's nice, but pretty busy.  No, it's all on me!   Guess what?  I am happy on my diet.  I was addicted to sugar.  What's the biggest thing to change in our diet over the last 100 years?  Sugar.  It's in everything!  California just released a study stating over 50% of all Californians are prediabetic or have diabetes and most don't even know they have it (hummm....sounds like celiac disease).   http://newsroom.ucla.edu/releases/majority-of-california-adults-have-prediabetes-or-diabetes Enough of my soapbox talk......I've got to get some stuff done!  
    • healthy bread recipe?
      One month into the diet and she's probably very constipated because she HAS celiac disease.  She needs more time to heal.  Maybe six months to a year.  Why so long?  In theory, she should heal within weeks, but it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet and learn about cross contamination and shared manufacturing lines.  Plus, consuming lots of gluten-free items right off the bat, may be contributing more to her health problems.  We had kids on this forum who did not drop their antibody levels until they eliminated processed foods.  20 parts per million may just be too much for her to handle right now. I would recommend reading our Newbie 101 section under "Coping".  It has some nice tips.  I would strongly recommend feeding her whole foods.  She can get plenty of fiber from fruit and veggies.  I do not even eat any grains at all, but that's my choice because grains spike my blood sugar just the same as cane sugar (I have diabetes too).   After she has healed, you can introduce breads and all kinds of junk food!     By then you will not remember what real bread tastes like.  Ask my non-celiac kid.  She's likes gluten-free pasta now.  She admits that she has forgotten what real pasta tastes like.  She adores all my baked-from-scratch gluten free cakes and cookies (that I can not eat! ) When I was diagnosed, my learning curve was easy.  My hubby had been gluten free for 12 years!  So, I ate like him.  Turns out that I was reacting.  Found out that because I was in the healing stage, I could not tolerate additives like Xanthan Gum (really needed to replace gluten in bread), preservatives, etc.  found in commercial breads and baking flour mixes.  I had lots of food intolerances that eventually resolved and some did not!   Okay. Villi damaged but not gone?  Is your doctor crazy?  Your daughter has celiac disease!  I strongly recommend getting her records and lab results and getting a second opinion.  She should have been diagnosed by now.  You should be looking into keeping her safe at school with a 504 plan (but a 12 she shouldn't be playing with playdough, but colleges will have to accommodate her diet and that's coming up faster than you think!)   Welcome to the forum!  I hope this helps.  
    • Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?
      If I were in your shoes, I would first test out a histamine intolerance diet before going gluten free.  Migraines and  fatigue seems to scream histamine intolerance.  It's most widely known in Europe, but it is gaining some ground here in the US.   But, I am not a doctor and I do not know you.  What I can suggest is that you do some research and continue to advocate for your health.   If you go gluten free, then it's six months.  If you had celiac disease, it would take that long to heal or longer!  It's a hard diet to follow when your results are negative, but nothing's impossible!  
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Money.  It costs more to run a celiac panel.  For years the TTG has been the recommended screening test for celiac disease.  It catches most, but not all celiacs.  It's a pretty good test, but no test is perfect.  You are going forward with the endoscopy.  Make sure your GI takes 4 to 6 tissue samples (biopsy) because just a "visual" often looks fine (visually I was fine, biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB).   So, keep eating gluten.  My advice is to eat all your old favorite things.....it might be your last chance!   The good news is that you are getting closer to getting a diagnosis which will result in improved health (if you go gluten free).  
    • Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?
      Thank you so much.  I have not had those things ruled out, but will look into those.  I wonder how long I should try gluten-free to truly know if there is a difference?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
