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:

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
