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 ???

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
