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

They both sound good to me right now--guess it's been too long without real junk food! God help me, sometimes I just plain miss the stuff :D

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"...

    • It sounds like you're doing great. That's amazing that your anxiety has decreased like that. You're obviously doing something really good for your health. With the other things I'm sure they will get better in time. After I gave up gluten I had a bad year but overall it got better. Things like anxiety and insomnia massively improved over time with being gluten free. However, going Paleo (which you are on your way to with the no dairy too) really helped my anxiety, as did running and self-taught acupressure. In particular I found processed gluten free foods were awful for my mood. I know you have to find your own way but I really want to encourage you to see how you feel without that if you haven't already. I also can't afford therapy but when I did have it, that helped too but just being well, gives you the chance to sort your own thoughts and feelings out even without a therapist. Good luck
    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
