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 ???

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
