Same in this house, but even HE said...babe, my pants are getting tight.... :lol:

So have some strawberries with a little honey (if they're tart) :P ...or some lightly sauted apples with honey and cinnimon( maybe a few golden raisins and/or Dates as well) over non fat all organic yogurt! Or saute apples,strawberries,black berries and honey and eat as is!(the honey makes a warm sauce). Make your Dessert...and eat it too! LOL! :P ...just make it healthy and light! :D (thats how I conquer the old sweet tooth!)LOL! :lol:

The honey is great for healing the digestive track (google health benifits ofhoney)...it soothes as well! yeah...it can be a little fattening...but its an antioxident and a lot healther than other choices!(I consider it MEDICINAL) LOL!...I'll take my chances with HONEY any day!....the key is just don't go overboard! HaHaHa! but dessert is suposed to be a treat by its very nature! :blink::rolleyes::D

The GI doc says it's okay, eat up, but my pants strongly object.

The obvious solution is not to wear pants!

Boring as ever but for once a meal that both of us will eat, tacos. I have a few flour tortillas left so I'll be having soft tacos since I've never been a fan of hard shells anyway.

Thanks for the dieting tips, but we already have our smoothies every morning with berries of all kinds, pineapple, kale, flax seed, and honey and we get lots of fruits in our diets. I eat little in the way of "goodies".

I am talking about our weekend sweet that LOVE2TRAVEL knows I bake from scratch for my hubs that we need to cut back on a little.

Yes, you are a very, very skilled and accomplished cook and baker. We cook/bake high-end quality meals/desserts in our homes, don't we? Can you say croquembouche? Dacquoise? :P I know very well that you do it with love, just as I do. Love for the ingredients, the process, the art and craft and our dear sweet husbands. :D

If you were standing right here in my kitchen right now, I do not know who would hug you first, me or my hubs. :wub:

yes, I can say croquembouche and Dacquoise, but my pants split at the very mention. :lol:

The problem is, my chocolate ganache and cream cheese/buttercream frosting will continue to make us chubby. HE can work out at the gym. I cannot :( ...yet!

We had profiteroles at our run-away elopement with our best friends to NYC. Who doesn't like those?

Hazelnuts...oh baby, they are sitting right here in my pantry...but I am ignoring them ...and they call to me...."grind me and make into a torte" ...the walnuts? They scream "make me into a dacquoise with coffee buttercream frosting....

See what I mean? yes, you do :lol:

Oh, I know. I think I just put on 5 lb reading culinary books today. My pants suddenly got tighter, dang it.

Guess what? As I cannot work out at the gym, I am starting swimming next week. I am the only one who can make my muscles stronger so I may as well have at it! ;)

We had a good one tonight. DP smoked a chicken with my homemade adobe sauce. We had that with roasted cauliflower and a greek salad.

I made a boatload of soup today, maybe a gallon. All roasted vegies, no grains. Haven't decided whether or not to add cream. I'm thinking not. (It has a piece of bacon in it, carmelized the chopped onions in it. B)

adobe sauce...greek salad...heaven!! (slurp)

I vote "no cream"-- if it's already "thick" from the onions-- sounds YUMMY, hon. :)

Don't worry - I won't forget! I'm planning to start with just walking in water and floating on my back. My PT told me not to do the front crawl but to swim on my back as the front crawl would put me in a bad position for my back/discs, etc. But I'm not doing that until I've walked and floated first. :)

Perfect plan! No crawl yet. Heat and stretch gently first.... and ice after.

okay, sorry to interrupt the dinner chat, folks... :lol:

carry on!!

Well, you DID mention heat and ice! :lol: And stretching gently can apply, too. Not like it used to...gluten-free bread dough doesn't quite behave like gluten dough does.

I love you.

None of us "stretch quite like we used to" :lol:

You should have seen my attempt at "mock rye bread" today....it stretched (sort of) and it was GOOD!

Hubs is in heaven.

Their brown rice flour I think. Maybe. Something like that. They don't roll as well as I remember tortillas rolling, but it worked out okay.

I'm so frustrated with the whole masa harina thing... I decided I wanted arepas and while we have a huge latino population here all I can find is masa harina. The blog I read (from a gluten free blogger) suggested PAN brand of the flour I want but it says right on it that it may have wheat. I just want a sandwich!!! I'll try again tomorrow to find what I want, there is still one market I didn't stop at and then I'll just risk everything the PAN.

I got my masa harina from nuts.com

They have a certified gluten-free section.

GREAT stuff and I have had zero problems with all of their products. I am a "quick responder", :rolleyes: so I can say that honestly.

Thanks, I'll check that out for some masa harina to make tortillas with. Sadly masa harina is not what is used for arepas, which is why I've become so frustrated. The stores all have tons of masa harina, but no masarepa. The only risk with PAN is from CC (which I've had issues with in the past with dried fruit) but apparently a lot of people on gluten free diets use it with no issues. The only other brand I've found is Goya which has the same CC warning. I want a sandwich so bad though that I think I need to just suck it up and see what happens. The glutenfreegirl blog recommends the brand so maybe I'm just letting my rampant paranoia get to me.

I saw that recipe on there once. They look like English muffins! :)

A, I have to think she would not recommend something that would "get you" with CC.

I am having a cup of instant gluten-free brown rice as I do not know how to cook and don't know the meanings of most of the foods your talking about. All I know is I pulled out some of moms old recipes and am trying to find a gluten-free Beef Consomme. I don't know what a Consomme is but I need one. :blink:

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
