Start saving, girl! I will, too!

yo!....LOVE 2!! how long before it snows again, sweetie??

Dinner tonight was:

the "encore" of stuffed peppers (I never say leftovers)

hubs said "delicious-o" and "you can make this again anytime, babe"...

Is he the best "audience" or what?

We have leftovers in my house too. I roasted 2 scallions and 3 chopped mushrooms in olive oil. I cooked NOTTA pasta- rice linguine. 3 minutes before the pasta was done I added 1 cup broccoli, 1 cup spinach and 1/2 cup frozen peas. I took everything out and mixed up with scallions and mushrooms. I added more cold olive oil and sprinkled generously with salt. Now I'm cooking 2 leftover- grilled and sliced chicken breasts in spaghetti sauce. It will cover my son - vegetarian (he can eat it with parmesan cheese) and my husband - meat eater (I will put meat sauce on top of pasta for him). Dinner served!!:) :)

If you start now, you can pick up Sylvia, and then, me in NY and we could be there in a few hours (I KNOW where she is....) ;)

....grabbing bag and keys now..... B)

If you make the effort to come, the least I can do is make dessert with those cherries. Maybe Cherries Jubilee or Cherry Clafoutis would work. See you in two hours! :D

drool :rolleyes:

Oh, what a chore, to HAVE to use up fresh sheep's cheese :rolleyes:

Gawd yes! I could live on the stuff! :D

I have a question for you guys.

I have not ate red meat since 2009. I would like to add it in somehow to give me more dinner options, especially since it seems to be the goldmine when it comes to nutrients.

Any suggestions as to how I should do that? I'd love a taco salad right now made out of something other than turkey meat. Thanks!

I was off of red meat for a long time before I reincorporated it into my diet. (my sensitivities left me with not much else in the line of protein)

I second the idea of ground beef in your recipe instead of ground turkey but start with a lower fat content to start. I found that starting with leaner cuts of red meats helped me digest it easier. Laura's Ground Beef is really good and found at a lot of regular grocery stores.

We had elk tacos...very good and fast. Elk is very lean, I never have to drain or blot and ours never tastes wild like deer does.

Too hot here for heavy food, so......Caesar salad with spiced shrimp, with homemade croutons. Oh, and cheese/garlic biscuits.

And I would love to find Sheep's Cheese. I will keep a look out when we venture to the big city. B)

Tomorrow, dinner out.

Oh, yum. Elk is incredibly delicious, isn't it? As my dad was a big-game hunter, I was practically raised on elk and moose.

She awakes!!

Holymotherofpearl, Bunz....where you been girl? I surely missed ya! :wub:

and the "shovel" is in reference to?

shoveling ice? snow? elk poo? .....BS??

Dinner tonight:

I made "Pulled pork".

It's all you guys' fault--you made me open the box with the slow cooker in it.

Side note: I have never made this BBQ delight EVER.

But I am expanding my horizons.

(okay, now this pulled pork thing ....is something I have always found to be slightly funny and almost "dirty sounding"...and in any event, I put it on a squishy roll, served Potato salad with dill and cole slaw on the side and hubs loved it :lol: )

Oh my gosh, I love making pulled pork. It is so delightfully yummy! I have a local pizza shop that brews their own root beer in the basement. I use that root beer to cook the pork in and it is just divine. Aren't you glad you opened that box?

This is the last week that I increased my dose of topamax so I'm still adjusting and super tired, which was fine by me. I slept all afternoon with an ice pack on my face, it was wonderful even if it meant I didn't make any plans for supper. We grilled some burgers and deep fried some fries. We've actually be using the deep fryer quite a bit since hubs went gluten free. I'm indulging him while he adjusts. I might even suck up the cost and suggest we actually buy a gluten free pizza next week. :ph34r:

You guys said we couldn't go to Sylvia's unless we shoveled! I assume that mens snow. :)

You can do 'pulled pork' with chicken, too! I ruined some chicken one day, got way too frikkin dry. So I shredded it and put it in a pot with barbecue sauce, worked great!

Sorry I disappeareded, been CRAZY busy!

NO, LOVE2Travel said SYLVIA had to shovel if we went all went up to HER house for dinner---in Canada ----in the winter. Geesh, that was a few months ago--are you on some sort of "tape-delay", honey? I know, you are delirious from the heat.

Glad you're back!xxoo

Dinner tonight:

Yes!! :)

The recipe I used did not have root beer in it, but I'll try that one next.

Yes - we have snow in Canada for 6-7 months. And not just a wee bit, either. So, whomever is willing to shovel, I'll do the cooking! Maybe you can get some decent seat sales. :P

Haha same goes for here, snow for half the year some years, a little less if we get lucky! :) Tonight I'm making homemade General Tso's chicken with broccoli and rice. :)

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
