JUST PEEL THEM AND CUT INTO 1/8" SLICES LENGTHWISE IS ALL.....MAY NEED TO BAKE A TAD LONGER IF FORKED AND STILL FIRM.
BUT OH BABY! THIS IS FANTASTIC! AND I USED CLASSICO TRADITIONAL BASIL SAUCE WITH HAMBURGER AND MUSHROOMS.
SKIPPED THE COTTAGE OR RICOTTA AND MIXED A BIT OF CHEDDAR IN WITH THE MOZ.
COVERED WITH FOIL THE WHOLE DURATION.
GOT THE IDEA FROM THE SCD DIET SITE OF RECIPES - ONLY THEY USE TOMATO JUICE.....NOT ME - GOTTA HAVE A THICKER SAUCE!
GOOD LUCK!

Thank you!

Thank You! It's good to know I'm not alone. Oh I get what I call the "gluten fever" too. When I've been glutened I get alternating fever and chills--this is regardless of the weather.


Me too! I break out in a cold sweat and drench the sheets. My husband likes to say "You got the FEVAH baby!" to make me smile when I feel terrible.

If you either haven't gotten out into the heat this year, or it's the first heatwave for your area, your body may need time to adapt and acclimate to the different temperature, as well. It's kind of like easing your way into exercising - ease yourself into tolerating the heat. (One way to do this would be to start upping the indoor temperature (a bit) so that the AC is running, but not keeping it as cool. The sudden temperature shifts from a cool indoors to a hot outdoors can also be taxing on the body.)


Okay, what temperature do you keep the AC? We keep it between 76-77 right now and it's just barely tolerable to me heat-wise if I'm doing housework. Today it's set to 76, but not keeping up (which means they didn't really fix it yesterday :angry: ) so the actual temperature in here is 78. I don't think I could stand to go much warmer.

I find that when it's hot I have to make sure that I get some salt as well as water. Since going gluten-free, I went from low prepared food intake (already salted) to basically none (larabars & canned tuna). Otherwise I'm constantly lightheaded/dizzy. I've passed out doing low key gardening because I can't keep my BP up.


My mom had low BP issues, and ate olives in bulk. Easy and quick snack :D

I've passed out doing low key gardening because I can't keep my BP up.

Today, for example, it been low 90s and I've been fairly active (involuntary... would rather have been lying on a beach towel in the shade by some water) and felt much better after I had salted rice cakes with salted PB for lunch. I'm not talking large amounts. Just a little to replace what's dripped down my forehead and off the end of my nose... basically think gatorade.

I've never tolerated the heat well. But the regular dizziness etc is new this year. Does that line up with gluten issues...? Maybe.


Oooh, I think you may have hit on something here. I have always had very low BP. Sometimes it was too low to donate blood. One time the nurse told to go eat something salty and come back in 30 minutes. I don't get light-head though, just the pounding heart in my ears and difficulty breathing. I have been drinking tons of water to stay hydrated, but I will pick up some gatorade for next time the AC stops working or I need to be out in the heat. The rice cakes with peanut butter are a good idea. I also like to eat stove cooked popcorn as a snack so I guess I have a reason to eat it more often. :D

I got "hot flashes" that last 2-3 hours when glutened. I sweat and my hair gets nasty and all that, and it lasts for a long time.


It's in the 90-100's here, too, and I'm way used to it, but when I ingest gluten, I sweat really bad.

I've always had issues regulating my body temperature. I get hot really quickly and once I heat up it takes forever for me to cool back down again. That leads me to feeling anxious and claustrophobic. I sweat like crazy all year round. I'm often hot when everyone else around me says it's comfortable or even cool. I'm super sensitive to humidity. I take tepid showers because the hot water makes me feel faintish. Since going gluten-free it seems to be a bit better but not great. My husband calls me his little space heater. :P

Thank you!



Many of my coworkers look forward to my gluten free cooking because it tastes better than what they are used to! 'go figure'
One person told me......'I think you've missed your calling - because of your celiac....you could make many more people happy that truly need your cooking'....(bows with honor and a grin)
Anywho...........You are so welcome!
If you need the recipe....just hollah and I'll post.
I have so missed lasagna and this is far better than the real thing for me! imho

Space heaters? LOL I think you're right!
Glad to know we're not alone in this.
There is one problem tho......If I'm sleeping next to another space heater...........I'm screwed!
My BP used to be so low that a doctor had to go back and forth 5 times to find it....and then it was 80/66.
That's funny too - cuz I took a bronkodilater that morning! hmmmmm.......was I crashing 2 hrs later? lol
I read today that if your thyroid is affected.....your body insulin reacts and messes up.....and it's also caused by insulin levels too..........and as I read on - it sounded like a diabetic is a person with food allergies! hmph! ya think?!?
I'm still working on all this to edumacate myself to the fullest.....but in the meantime, I trust no one when it comes to food.....so I do all the cooking....and in the process, I eat healthy.
Can't say I'm losing my weight yet, but if I can overheat in the winter from CC like a menopausal woman........then Summer and another 'space heater' is my haites!
I'm finally figuring out tho - that if I have anything dairy......my heartbeat is felt everywhere and with increasing pounding.
Narrowing it all down..........just sucks that now I'm gluten-free - OTHER things are standing in line saying....'ME NEXT! me next!!!!"
I so need a pool.........but I'll settle for the sprinkler.
