Did Anyone Else Get Carried Away With T-day ?

13 posts in this topic

My muscles are sore and I have a rash. Not DH, just about 40 bumps all over my abdomen, back and scalp. Mostly on my abdomen.

I haven't eaten these kinds of foods in any quantity in over 6 months. But by the time I had Thanksgiving dinner ready, it was full of known sensitivities/allergies and it was all just to much to resist. :blink:

In my stuffing I used Food for Life millet bread and it has yeast, the marshmellows on top of my daughter's sweet potatoes had high fructose corn syrup (yep, I stole hers :o ), tea had caffeine :blink: and the fudge had butter (dairy) and marshmellows (high fructose corn syrup). :blink::o

I only had a couple of bites of the marshmellows, 2 oz of tea and 1 piece of fudge, but it appears to have been too much.

The stuffing was my only repeat offender. Can't have chicken and cranberries without stuffing. :rolleyes:

Granted I ate nothing but leftovers for 2 days, so that was not very smart either. :unsure:

Now, I'm back on my old diet and loving it. Anyone else ? Marcia

Edited: It just dawned on me that I am probably sore because I did not sleep well at all after having tea with caffeine. My fibro has always come back if I had trouble sleeping. <_<

Yep! I'm paying a little bit, too!

I knowingly and purposely ate rice products (stuffing, pie crust) like they were going out of style. I normally only eat rice once a week.

I am having mostly indigestion, some bloating and gas :ph34r:

It was worth it :lol:

Rice pie crust, yummm ! I didn't get any pie this year. :(

I'm not nearly as sore today as I was yesterday, but the rash is worse. So, at this point, it still was not worth it. :blink:

On the upside, we at least have some ideas as to what foods to avoid :D

Just thought I'd offer a couple of alternatives for these items that are friendly for you so that you don't have to go through this again:

1) stuffing made from short grain rices (gives a similar texture, though slightly different) and the same seasonings and other ingredients (with more water) as regular stuffing

2) sweet potatoes can be served just baked, with or without a bit of brown sugar, or with a ginger glaze (ginger, sugar, water poured over fry cuts near the end of baking), or mashed, or wedged

3) herbal teas that are very similar to caffeinated tea, or just a fun herbal

4) raw brownies have a fudge like consistency (if you choose) without any of those ingredients, or make them dairy free

I know that lots of people stick hard to tradition, but I'm a fan of making new traditions when the old ones just aren't working any more. :)

Thanks,

Yum ! Those sound good. I actually had my own sweet potatoes made with brown sugar and cinamon and was happy with them until I spooned out some of my daughters for her. Then it was just too much for me. :blink:

BTW, what are short grain rices ?

I love ginger. Have your tried crystalized ginger on your baked potatoes with EVOO and raw cashews ?

HI! I'm so confused...so why are marshmallows and tea bad? or can some people not have that for other allergen/intolerance issues? Please clarrify because I love and eat both of these things...

Thank you!

lol... I only made one version of each dish for thanksgiving. :) No multiples here. People could all eat the same thing.

short grain rices are ... rices that have short grains. :P the grain of rice varies in length, depending on the variety you get. basmati and jasmine, for instance, tend to be long grain, and the standard 'white rice' is often long grain as well. sushi rice is a short grain rice. arborio rice (risotto) is a short grain rice, and one that is, IMHO, a must for part of the rice blend for a rice based stuffing. there's also short grain brown rice availabe (Lundberg is the only brand I've seen so far). (note that this is different from 'baby' rice.) the short grain rices are more 'glutinous' (not in a way that's bad for us), in that they have more starch that will come out in the cooking - this requires more stirring and adding liquid slowly, but produces a creamy texture.

I haven't tried ginger on baked sweet potatoes, but that sounds like a fabulous idea!

some people have problems with corn syrup and caffeine. it's not an issue from a gluten perspective, however.

Marshmellows have corn starch ( I looked - I knew it was corn something ) and tea has caffeine. Both are problems for me and a lot of other people too.

Otherwise, kraft marshmellows are gluten free ... not sure which teas are gluten-free....

Hi :)

Marshmallows and tea are not bad foods, nor do *most* of them contain gluten. (Always check, though, because some teas do contain gluten--never seen a marshmallow that does, but anything's possible) Some of us have other food intolerances--corn (which is in marshmallows) is a common one. Also, caffeine can bother some folks. I can't over eat grains, or I get symptoms.

If you don't have problems with corn or caffeine, then those things should be fine for you.

Marcia--

I hope you feel better soon. A couple days back on your regular diet should do it :D

How is the walking going? I meant to ask you that earlier, but forgot :blink:

The walking is going great, wonderful, fantastic ... :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

I am walking normal all of the time no matter how tired I am or how far I walk.

I absolutely love being able to walk !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was speed walking in and around people the other day and had to stop myself. For some reason, the people I was mowing over DID NOT understand .... :P

I still can not believe it. It took me several months to accept that I could actually sleep without drugs, so I am giving this a few months too.. I keep waiting to have a CFS relapse ... :ph34r:

I am trying to make myself clean up the mess the contractor made when they remodelled my bathrooms, so I haven't tested my legs since Thursday. Evidently, drop clothes are optional. :angry:

I never feel weak or winded any more either though. Things just keep getting better ....

Aren't you sorry you asked ??? Marcia

My memory is still lousy .. How r u ? Did u have mobility issues too ???

    • 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.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
