Gf Superbowl Party
0

1 post in this topic

With so many comments on difficulty finding stuff to eat, and on in particular noting that he/she (I forgot :-( ) likes dip with veggies, I thought I'd post what we had for our SuperBowl party. Everyone but my husband and I were vegetarian, and I'm the only celiac, but everyone loved it:

Salsa Fresca

4 tomatoes, seeded and diced

1 small red onion, diced

6 cloves garlic, diced finely

1/2 lime, juiced

few sprigs of cilantro, finely chopped

1/4-1/2 tsp salt (to taste)

Mix ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.

Guacamole

2 avocados, diced and mashed

1 lime, juiced

1 tomato, seeded and chopped

6 cloves garlic, diced finely

Mix ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap (pressing plastic wrap down onto the guacamole) and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.

Hummus

1 can garbanzo beans

2-3 tablespoons roasted sesame tahini

2-4 tablespoons olive oil

1 large lemon, juiced

6-8 large cloves garlic, chopped roughly

1 bunch chives, chopped (optional)

pinch of cayanne pepper (optional)

pinch of paprika (optional)

Throw everything in to a Cuisinart (a blender ought to suffice), and blend until the desired consistence (should be thick) - adding more olive oil to thin.

Veggie Platter

3 carrots, cut into thin strips (half inch by half inch by three inches or so)

3 zucchini, cut as above

1 jicama, cut as above

2 bell peppers, cut as above

juice of one lemon

Toss carrots in lemon juice to prevent browning, then arrange everything on a plate and serve with the dips above.

Bean Salad

1 can black beans, drained

1 can kidney beans, drained

1 zucchini, grated

1 red onion, chopped

1 tomato, seeded and chopped

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp cayanne pepper

1/4 tsp corriander

1/4 tsp ancho chili pepper (optional)

1/4 tsp chipotle chili pepper (optional)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

Mix all indredients in a bowl. Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.

Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers, seeded, quartered, and cut into thin slices

2 tbsp plain yogurt (not low-fat)

2 tbsp sour cream (not low-fat)

pinch or two of salt (to taste)

pinch of black pepper

Mix ingredients until cucumbers are covered in yogurt/sour cream mixture. Serve cold.

Pasta with Parmesean Cheese

1 box Ancient Harvest Qunioa Shell Pasta, cooked a bare five minutes

1/3 cup grated parmesean cheese

1/3 cup grated romano cheese

Preheat oven to 350F. After cooking and draining the pasta, toss it in a baking dish and sprinkle the cheese all over it. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Marinated Grilled Vegetables

3 zucchini, cut in half each way

1 green bell pepper, cut into large pieces (about two inches by one inch)

1 red bell pepper, cut likewise

30 medium sized white mushrooms, cleaned

1/4 cup high quality balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 tsp ground sage

1 tsp rosemary - chopped up or ground

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Combine last six ingredients, and pour over vegetables in a large bowl. Let marinate in the fridge for two hours or most of a day. Place the vegetables on a hot grill (zucchini cut side down, mushrooms stem side down, bell peppers internal side down), and cook for 10-15 minutes or until done. While those cook, heat a small pan and pour the remaining marinade in and leave it to simmer and reduce until it's syrup like (about the full time the vegetables cook). Pour the syruped marinade over the vegetables after they are taken off the grill.

We also had tri tip to make the hubby happy, but that's just steak (and seasoning) meets grill... :-)

    • Push for the endoscopy.  My GI said at the initial consult that he didn't think I had celiac but wanted to do the scope to "rule it out"  When he saw me immediately after the endo, while I was still in recovery, he saw enough damage to change his position and sure enough the biopsy came back positive.
    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
