What is it with guys and grills? If I ask my husband to make dinner, he pouts. But if I ask him to GRILL something, he's all over it.

I don't get it...

Stephanie

You never will, your not ment to, your not a man. :) Men say the same kinds of things about alot of the things most woman like, but the difference is men are okay with it. Men say "As long as we do x, y and z, she is happy" and most times dont care why, bearly give it any thought. Woman spend long converstions and time on the "why". Spend hours on the phone anyalizing the exact proccess tyring to figure it out, instead of just accepting "men and woman are different".

For example most men have no idea why a woman needs 3000 hours to get ready to go to <insert just about any place name here>, when most men can be ready in seconds. (yes, a bit of a stretch to illustrate a point... :D )

So he likes to grill, dont anaylize it, instead expliot it! :D

(caveman voice) Hmmm, fire, me cook dead animal on it!

:lol:

Yes, we have one and my husband cooks on it. I don't know that I would say he really likes to though. We cook steak on it, so that's not exactly healthy anyway. We need to come up with something else.

Stephanie- Ha ha !! So true... To bad he only wants to grill a few months out of the year. And an indoor grill isn't so exciting to him--its like a cop-out !

Vincent- I definitely DO exploit it ! I do accept the differences between men and women, and try to use them to each of our advantages. More and more I understand my husband and how different his needs are from mine. No use in fighting it !!

Abby- Have you guys ever tried a pork loin on the grill? It is excellent ! Boneless--very tender meat, you can buy marinaded or plain or could make up a quick "rub." They are really easy, and one of my husband's favorites.

PS--Have a crock pot?

Why about the grill? Definitely an element of feeling manly in cooking meat over those roaring flames ;) . I don't like to cook, period--explanation: ineptitude and perhaps a degree of laziness :lol:

Sorry, Vincent, but we're outnumbered. I'm not going against the majority on this one :lol:

Men grill??? I do all the grilling around our home... year around... outside grill... even in the snow!! :o I would MUCH rather clean up after grilling than having all the pots and pans of cooking inside. In fact, I will be grilling out tonight!! ;)

You can do a turkey in the grill. Put it into a roast pan, with or without gluten-free dressing. Cover it and put the lid down on the BBQ. Cook at lowest temperature the BBQ will allow. Careful that you check it occasionally though, as it still cooks faster than the oven. It comes out lovely and brown and tender. And the biggest plus is that it doesn't heat up your house with the oven in the summer time :D

Another one for the grill is pork chops put in a roast pan, (you can brown them first) covered with a jar (or large can) of tomatoes or stewed tomatoes. Add potatoes cut in half, carrots, celery and onions. Cover the roast pan, then put the lid down on the BBQ. Cook at lowest heat. There you have your whole meal without heating up the house :rolleyes: It's great when you have company, as you can sit around and visit, play horseshoes or whatever while supper cooks.

Maybe in moderation, but I'm talking we eat it twice a week or so. Red meat, as I understand it, is bad for your heart and cholesterol levels.

Just about anything in excess is bad for you... but 2 severings of redmeat a week is not excess! :D Steak, and meat in general, is very healthly. For example redmeat is your best source of iron, much better then the iron you get from plant products. I could go on and on about the healthy side of meat... just dont pour molasses on it or somthign like that :lol: and its good for you. :D

You can pretty much grill anything. Steak's good for you in moderation, so's chicken, pork, fish, turkey, and vegetables. (Apparently you can grill some fruits as well. ;-) )

One thing we did with camp fires that would work fine on a girl with real fire (not that crapy electric ones!) is take the meat of your choice, a good varity of veggies, butter, and some random seasonings, wrap them all up in tin foil and toss right in the fire! YUMMY!

I have actually found that if I don't eat a certain amount of red meat, I suffer. It's weird. I recently had a very busy/active week (riding my bike a lot) then went to the fair and on a bunch of rides, then the next day went on a 6 hour canoe trip down a river. I was eating snacky meals, though fairly balanced, not a whole lot of meat protein (but balanced veggie/bean proteins, cheese, milk, even canned fish) and I was so beat by the end of this, just exhausted. I finally had some turkey sausage for breakfast (with dark meat in it, not just white) and hamburger for lunch followed by buffalo steak for dinner and finally I was not so exhausted. I felt great waking up the next day.

I had read at some point about a caveman kind of diet based on purine levels of foods and taking the quiz, I should be on a high-purine diet (red meats, organ meats, veggies like asparagus - all the stuff you are supposed to avoid when you have goout, etc) and not relying on most veggies, grains, fish and white meat poultry for food. I actually do find that I am better off on the heavy meats. I don't like most organ meat but do love chicken livers - when I'm really run down those are the answer to my prayers. Or a big hamburger.

It's weird.

And I love letting my husband cook on the BBQ - it's funny because we are not typical, he is not a real mans-man and I'm not a real female kind of girl, but on this we fall into the standard roles... :)

Wow, Stephanie, you're a busy lady! I imagine if I was that active the meat would be good, I'm pretty sedentary though. So all the fat in the steak and burgers go right to my belly! :blink:

Its not the meat that does that its the sugars in the other foods you eat. Besides most of the fat is incinerated on a gril. :) If you ate ONLY meat, you would lose weight very quickly, of course you would prbly die from malnutrition because you do need a bit more of a balanced diet. :D Its just comon "old-wisetale" wisdom has the balance to far from meat (well protien realy), and way to far in to grains, breads, and the like.

But of course I am NOT A DOCTOR and not a DIETITION or anything like that, so take my adivce at your own risk. :D As for me an my family, we eat meat every night. And often at lunch. Protein is the base of our diet not grains. This has the side effect making this swtich to celiac disease diet much eiaser for us then most folks that base thier diets around the grains. :D

I agree fully about the red meats. Everytime I feel bad I eat red meat and I feel so much better after. I used to worry about maybe getting gout but its never happened.

Hi, I am feeling the strain too, I'm actually still "grieving" over my diagnosis of 3 weeks ago. Despite my name, (2old4) I'm only 34, I chose it because I feel I've had this disease all of my life but I have just gotten a doctor that would take me seriously. Now I am just trying to cope with simple things, like can I have a soda? What kind? I'm sooo clueless about this, I went to a dietican last week, I had read more on the net than she knew, she was absolutely no help to me! But these manufacter lists are crazy, which ones are really correct? I feel for you, it sucks, but I'm so new at it, I'm not sure how bad yet!!! :( 2old4-Patty

Breyers

Campbells

Cascadian Farms

Celestial Seasonings

Edy's

General Mills

Good Humor

There are also places like Frito Lay, Utz, ConAgra and more that have gluten free products..you can find out more on their websites.

You will need this forbidden list if you do not already have it. It will tell you what all gluten is hidden under and what we can't have.

http://www.celiac.com/st_main.html?p_catid=12

Alot of name brand sodas are gluten free. There is a thread about that now. All of Pepsi brand is gluten free and I think a majority of the Coca Cola brand is too...check that thread..I believe it is in the product section.

You also need to be aware that gluten can be in your lipstick(very common has wheat starch) lotions, shampoos, and basically everything that can come in contact with your food or near your face should be checked.

It may seem overwhelming at first but you will definitely get the hang of it and it's really not as bad as it seems.

We can still have alot of candy bars, ice creams, chips, and all that junk :lol: We can have more then people may think...especially at first...I didn't think I could have alot and thought I was more limited then it really is.

There are great gluten free english muffins I get along with great gluten free donuts, mac and cheese, etc.

Only 34. I didn't find out until I was 36 and I basically felt like crap for most of them. This isn't the end of the world and it takes some time to get the hang of it. My life and health are so much better now. You actually have so many things to look forward to now that you can get on the road to good health. This site is the best place for information. The amount of information on this site can be overwhelming but in time you will find this lifestyle to be much easier than it appears to be right now.

Yeah, I was at my sister's today and eating stuff (I think she may have this too) and I had a Pepsi and Lays Stax. And she was like "You can have Pepsi?" "You can have chips?" "You can have M&Ms?"

So their are quite a few things we can have that people are surprised about. It's sure a lot better than the old rice and bananas diet they used to put people on!

So true. People get so used to seeing you eating you eating specially made-to-be-gluten-free-foods that they forget that you can eat anything processed, let alone the wonderful empty-caloried sodas and chips :lol:

Yeah, I was sitting at my daughter's dance studio one day snacking on Lay's Stax and drinking a Coke when the other mom's realized I was eating "normal" food and they quizzed me about it... "OH are you cheating on your diet????" nope!
