Hiya Peepsters--I think we're as set as we'll ever be if/when the electricity goes out. Stocked up on water, other non-perishables, and the all important Popcorn Indiania Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn and Gluten Free Bakehouse stuff. B)

and wine?

Happy Late Birthday, Em!!!

I don't think you East Coasters will need a leaf blower . . . from the way it sounds, it's all going to blow into the midwest. Em, can I borrow you new leaf blower? After you're done wif it, of course.

Hope your day improves soon :)

So... remember that food and tooth issue i had a little bit back? Had it again yesterday and today. I got yesterdays madness out, but then there was todays. I had my soup for lunch and couldnt get the irritent out (had to rush to class). Came back and had dinner then proceeded for the next hour to floss the heck out of it. Nothing but sorness and bleeding. Then i got the salt water out and swished the heck out of it and noticed it did remove something! I believe that worked as its only a bit sensative with my retainer in and no pain without it (as opposed to senative without the retainer and throbing with).

-sigh-

so does anyone have a good method for getting meat to become tender? I normally buy potroasts and cut them up for soup, however, more often then not, i don't let it cook for more than an hour so its still sort of tough (thus gettign stuck in between that tooth). Any tips? My mom suggested slicing it really thin (i really try to do this but my hands aren't very coordinated i'm afraid) and to score it?

also, would honey work in place of the vanilla in that cake? I was thinking about it a bit ago and thought i'd ask (it was suggested a bit ago).

Get yourself a pressure cooker and cook for your roast for an hour. It will be plenty tender. Is your retainer pressing on your gum line? Maybe that is a side cause of the irritation?

For pot roasts, go for cuts that have more fat, like chuck roast. I made

one the other day that was fantastic. And for heaven's sake cook it

longer! Tell me your method, oven or stovetop?

And yes, honey would fine, the vanilla doesn't affect the chemistry of

the cake, only the flavor. It is not essential.

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
