:) Omg, I had to get in on this one-I have a friend who swears fried mac and cheese is the greatest food on the planet. She makes the creamy homemade good kind, though. Any leftovers the next day she fries in a pan with butter. Can you say arteriosclerosis?!! Deep fried must mean they make it thick with cheese and make it into a ball? I would think it would look pretty gross... :blink: Plus, wouldn't the grease in the cheese melt and then with the grease on the outside just make it one huge greaseball-y glob? :o

I have seen deep fried tweenkies too, but the strangest thing I ever heard of was batter-dipped deep fried dill pickles. I am ashamed to admit I think I would like the pickles, lol. I think they would maybe taste like fried green tomatoes.

btw-Susan --Yay! Great to see you!!!

Robbin--I've not seen the stuff personally, I'm told that it is bite-sized "nuggets" of deep fried mac and cheese. All I can think is they must scoop it into the hot fat and fry it up like that :blink:

Leah--Deep fried Coke--really? :lol:

Susie -- how are you?????? Lynnie

Before being diagnosed, we had all that deep-fried garbage at our State Fair. Deep fried snickers bars, twinkies, etc. Never tried them, because it just sounded WRONG!!!!! Also thought that it had to be a Kentucky redneck thing . . . . !!!!! :lol: Didn't know that it would be anywhere else . . . We have a restaurant that sells deep-fried pickle chips . . . called "frickled pickles"

Need to go . . . . moment of silence is getting ready to begin

I had these pre-gluten-free. They're not great, but they're not as bad as they sound. I never was a breaded and fried lover, if I had been, I'd have loved them.

Would I lie to you?

Sad but true.

Now, I do have to admit, I love fried jalapenos! They're not exactly healthy either.

After seeing how he makes it, I probably would have tried it--once upon a time. Sounds like something that would taste good for the first couple of bites, then get sickish.

One of my favorite appitizers used to be Olive Garden deep fried zucchini slices--they dust them with grated cheese--so good!

Then how on earth do you deep fry it? :blink::huh::D:D

Pauliina

Anything that can be battered can be deep fried :rolleyes:

In the UK you can get snickers and mars bar in batter deep fried

Yum-NOT :o:o

Oh I feel queasy :unsure:

It's a southern delicacy down here too - blech! :P

State fair food is evil.

"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"...

I think I saw those things on unwrapped and said "EWW"

And then I saw them in my sister's freezer. What on Earth is wrong with people? :huh:

Oh, and when I got to college (I moved from NY to AR), I ate at the dining halls. I joked to everyone nothern that they fry everything but the coke!

Apparently fried twinkies are quite the thing at A&M. Gross.

And I loooooove fried pickles, sadly. It was the only thing I'd eat at AQ Chicken House!

Hmm...I should try frying some one day. :)

:lol::lol::lol: so true...

Hi everybody! Been keeping a low profile here....

Fried pickles.....I REALLY don't get that one at all. Deep fried anything.....so disgusting. I was in the waiting room of the hospital the other day, and there was a family from Holland there, six people, here for three weeks, we chatted a while and they were shocked at the lack of physical activity here.....said something about the option of staying in their rented RV in a church parking lot, less than a mile away. They were astounded that the social worker gave them a phone number for someone to come pick them up.....they said, doesn't anybody WALK here? (nope, no one does, but it's a very spread-out town.) And they commented very delicately on the obesity they've seen in this country.....they were appalled.

I'm pretty sure they don't deep-fry everything in Europe as we do here.....it is truly evil! :blink:

Leah - fried coke batter......EWWWWWWWW - - positively vomitous!

It would be even more noticeable for someone from Holland. :D Since this is such a flat country, and very densely built, meaning in towns distances are very manageable, everybody bikes to places. People might drive to work, or take a train (also very common) but then they might bike to the shops or to the train station or just for fun in the weekend. Or indeed just walk... it's a national pastime apparently (I'm not Dutch!) to take a train to some remote place and then follow a route description you can buy at a tourist office around a nice countryside route either back to the same station or to another one.

I had a couple of visitors from the US once, they were amazed at the masses and masses of bikes that are parked outside of Amsterdam central station. Instead of a car park building, there's a three story structure to park your bike... :blink::D Here in Utrecht their planning to rebuild the station and one of the important planning decisions to make is for how many bikes can they provide space for. :D

Ok, so it's not my native country, but I think this is something the Dutch well deserve to be proud of. :)

Got to thinking about it, though . . . . State fair food? Funnel Cakes -- they're really BAD for you, but boy are they delicious! :lol:

    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
