I made Mexican Pizza.

A cookie sheet of polenta topped with grated cheese, chopped onion ground beef with taco seasoning and some enchilada sauce. Put it in a 425 oven for about 10 minutes and sprinkled with chopped green onion. Delicious and very filling.

Baked spaghetti squash smothered in slowly sauteed candy sweet onions, gypsy peppers & garlic. Had it last week & left us craving more. Just seemed perfect for a cold rainy week-end.

Tomato soup (recipe made by moi, but has tomatoes :rolleyes: and rice, so a few people here can't eat it), a banana, a bar of soy chocolate with rice flakes, a tall glass of acerola juice and half a cup of coffee.

I feel happy because I am full and my stomach does not grumble nor hurt.

Apparently my no energy Thursday evening turned into feeling like I had razor blades in my throat by bedtime. I took myself off to the doctor on Friday just to make sure it wasn't strep. Nope, just a fun head cold yay! I didn't eat yesterday at all, I was in too much pain to consider putting food against my throat. I found the energy tonight to cook some rice ramen for supper for both of us.

Yup, both sick so I don't even have a well husband to dote on me and take care of me. I had to go buy my own cough drops. The bright side is when you sound like you're dying every time you cough no one at the store will come within like 100 feet of you so you get whole aisles to yourself to pick out flavors of cough drops. :D

Tomorrow is soup. Taking the top off a can is gonna be a real challenge. I can barely get myself up the stairs at this point. Hopefully by Monday I'll be feeling better and I'll get that appetite with a vengeance thing going on. What I want is a salad, but there is no way I'm going to eat something that won't just slide right down painlessly.

AAAAWWWW Adalaide, I feel bad for you. I hope you get better soon. We're sick at my house too. Diahrrea, fever, runny nose, body aches.....ugh....

Last night I wanted pizza really bad, but can't have dairy anymore, so whats a girl to do?????

I didn't feel like making a crust from scratch, and my local grocery store does not carry dairy free cheese, so, I decided that I didn't need cheese to make a pizza, that's right, I made it without any cheesy topping at all, and it was delicious, beyond my expectations. I did not miss cheese at all.

I bought Udi's pizza crust, ragu quick pizza sauce, and topped it with Boar's head pepperoni, red onion, mushrooms, red pepper, and olives. Guess what? It was amazing. My only problem was that the toppings fall off because they don't have the cheese to glue it all together, however; my husband solved the problem by telling me to cut wide pieces of pizza, and fold it over like they do on the east coast to eat it, it worked great, and was less messy.

I can haz pizza again:)

Rice Flour Gnocchi with Roasted Garlic, White Wine and Shallot Sauce

I have a potato Gnocchi recipe I have always used and loved. It has some flour in it. If I use a gluten free flour should I add some X-gum?

For tonight I am making a huge pan of roasted veggies.

Getting ready to go on a month-long vacation to Europe so are cleaning out the fridge. We are simply having a bacon and potato cake or truffade (many layers of very thinly-sliced potatoes and bacon pressed into a cake). And raw cucumber from a friend's garden.

That pizza sounds great. I think I'm finally gonna order some Venice crusts this week to try and see how that goes. My husband is a complete jerk. He is making me drink orange juice because it'll help me get better he says. It may as well be battery acid I'm pouring onto the back of my throat. I do feel mildly better though, I'm coughing less and my fever broke so maybe his battery acid is working. I'm totally going to have that soup for supper when he gets home and I can make him open the can. I don't know what he's having and frankly I don't think I have the energy to care today. I am so not going to get my pretzels chocolate dipped in time for my new video game on Tuesday.

Anything involving proscuitto always sounds 110% awesome. And you wouldn't be starving for a week if we had our muumuus. :D

So not my weekend for cooking, i somehow ruined all but one pancake.... Me thinks it might be the stove and the fact that i'm not used to it, as i've only been here for a little over a month.

That's right, A!

SORA! Girl, where the heck ARE those muumuus anyway?

Geesh, looks like a package sent through the Canadian postal service is slower in coming than a compliment from a mother-in-law.

Dinner tonight: lettuce and water.

What a feast!

Should have let me know I could have popped across the water with those Muumuu's then you wouldn't have to be eating lettuce all week. :)

Tonight we had the last of the turkey with gravy and rice with carrots and honey.

I ate today! This of course led to a disagreement between my butt and I on how far was safe to travel from the bathroom but for an extremely short period of time there was food in me. :) I meandered about the store while they were filling my prescription because they have the most horrid chairs there and found some bison for $4 a pound marked down 2 days before it's expiration. I figured ground meat would be easy to eat so we made them into burgers and I managed to get the whole thing in the top before it made a glorious exit.

You know IH, I guess there is a sort of positive here. According to the doctor from Friday to Monday I lost just over 5 pounds. It's like a kick start to my diet. If you like you can come visit and I'll give you a kick start. :P

Gee, er,um...thanks, sweets, but no thanks. I have plenty of experience in losing weight the "sick" way and it's not fun. I'll just cut back on the carbs and sweets and wear sweatpants for a few weeks.

Seriously, I do hope you feel better soon! xxoo

Dinner tonight:

Salmon

Swiss chard

Apples---they are coming out our ears.

Most are given to the local adult care/nursing home for use in their kitchen.

We can only eat so much applesauce and we do NOT need to be eating any apple pie, apple crisp or galettes. :D

    • Hi, I am 20yrs old and have had this weird stomach pains on and off for 2 years. They started by just having pains on my left side when I sucked in or pressed on my tummy. In the last 3 months they have gotten really bad, with a lot of bloating and used to occur almost every time just before bed I would get bloated, and feel constipated like I just needed a hole in my stomach to release the pressure. I have had tests for lactose and gluten, and they both came back negative. I was not having any gluten at the time of the test which I have read can affect the results. I had little help from my doctor so I went gluten free which was working really well and I would only have pain once every two weeks. The last three nights were awful, I was in so much pain I struggled to walk, and again they would go away in the morning. I looked like I was pregnant and relief was only through passing wind (sorry for the detail!). I was wondering if anyone has had similar experience, or could point me in a direction to help me. The weird thing is that I did have gluten one day and that didn't seem to affect me at all. Then I will have something like vegemite (I'm from Australia) and this is the only thing that I can think off that would set me off (it contains wheat). So I don't really know what do to or where to go, these stomach pains have been heightened since I had a horrible gastro for a week, and went to hospital. Could it be possible that my gut lining has been damaged? I have become really stuck on what I should do next, as tonight my stomach is fine, I actually feel hungry (previously I have felt super full as a result of being bloated), so I have no idea what triggered that horrible episodes before I went to bed for the last few nights. Any thoughts or suggestions would be amazing, thank heaps
    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • 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.
