Since it's summer here, I made rice paper "summer" rolls: slaw of cabbage and carrots with commercial feta/garlic dressing; sushi rice, spears of cucumber, avocado, goat feta cheese,

julienne of carrots, green onions, snow pea sprouts for hubs and watercress for me, along with shrimp. Yum. Super healthy! I used the feta dressing for dipping sauce, hubs made a wasabi/tamari???!!! combination :lol:

Last night I had veggie-beef soup made from that leftover beef roast and juices that I had stuck in the freezer a couple of weeks ago. I actually made the soup the day before and as with many soups, this was even better the second day.

Since I never use a recipe for it, it doesn't turn out the same way twice. I added chopped onion and celery, a can of V-8, a box of Progresso beef broth, a can of petite diced tomatoes, some shredded cabbage and a bag of frozen mixed veggies, basil and parsley (that's the things I remember). Glad I managed to stash some single serving containers in the freezer for future quick meals when I positively don't feel like cooking.

Oh, and I also had a gluten-free Betty Crocker cupcake about 9 p.m....

Tonight is an easy gluten-free dinner. Steak and lettuceless salad. No thinking needed. Just eating.

Last night for dinner I made fluffy pancakes. Our local health food store had a Gluten Fest this last weekend. I love to be able to sample gluten-free foods before buying. One company was making pancakes. Those fluffy light ones that I have not been able to find in years. Their mix, Light-As-Air Pancakes is very good. My DH was in heaven to have a great pancake dinner. I believe it was by Fahlstrom Farms.

Ya'll are making me jealous! Yumm!

Tonight we had grilled pork steaks that I marinated in orange juice & s&p with brown rice, stamed swiss chard and roasted mushrooms and a little bit of fresh pineapple. And one small piece of dark chocolate for dessert. Not bad. B)

I just enjoyed a delicious fish pie. Now I'm waiting for a mysterious dessert....I hope its chocolate. The best part is that I didn't have to make any of it. Good thing my boyfriend is a suberb cook. And baker. And its all gluten-free. :D Its our Valentines dinner.

Taco Rice--I'm a taco lover and this is better than tacos any day. There are lots of recipes on the internet. I just make it the same way I do for tacos. I do add whole beans to the meat.

Tonight I made a stir-fry with chicken breast, shrimp, onions, snow peas, mushrooms, yellow squash and probably a couple of other things I've forgotten. And Jasmine rice. Now I'm having a Reese's peanut butter cup. :D

Tonight, I had gluten free pasta with frozen vegetable mix of broccoli, green beans, carrots, kidney beans, white beans, black beans, added some garlic and onion and topped with parmesan. mmmmm my go to meal when I don't feel like cooking anything big.

I was in CA last week and for my son's birthday I made him a chocolate cake (regular not gluten free) and I also made a gluten free version of the same old family recipe using Bob's Red Mill all purpose baking flour and a tsp of xanthum gum per cup of flour. They all liked my gluten free version better and some of the guests couldn't tell the difference!! My youngest son that lives with me said that going forward I can make the gluten free one all the time!!! I'm making it for a party I'm going to next Sunday and only the hostess knows it's gluten free (wink). I'm also making a pasta salad that I made in CA as well. Tinkyada spiral noodles, grape tomatoes, mozzarella pearls, chopped onion, chopped garlic, olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some chopped fresh parsley and basil. Let this combo sit for a while and the flavor is amazing. (I almost didn't get any at the party last week and I was the only gluten free one there lol)

Another thing I did today - I had purchased some Glutino sesame bagels and wasn't crazy about the taste or texture as a bagel so I cut them up in little chips and drizzled with olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, and a little salt and baked them until they were dried out and crunchy. OMG they taste like the rye chips in Gardetto's... LOL I have a whole bag of the chips from 3 bagels.

Happy Cooking

Make your items you make for tacos, use no shell or tortillas, put hot cooked rice in a bowl, top with cheese and then layer on taco meat and any topping you desire.

I pulled a serving of my veggie-beef soup out of the freezer for dinner. And because it's a pretty light meal, I'm going to indulge in a Udi's Double Chocolate Muffin later this evening (nuked briefly to melt those chocolate chips). They are to die for...albeit a bit on the expensive side but I figure I'm worth it. :D

I'm intrigued with the fish pie...would love details...

Tonight we had fish filets, marinated in fresh herbs, lemon juice and olive oil and minced green onion/serranno pepper, wrapped in parchment paper and grilled, along with grilled new potatoes and summer squash. I just add chopped onion or chopped green onion to the taters and drizzle olive oil over them, add sea salt and freshly ground pepper, wrap them in foil and dh takes it from there on the grill.

I live with a grill master. If I marinate something or cover it in aluminum foil, he'll grill it, despite the weather. Yay!

That sounds wonderful! I need a grill master at my house!!!

Sylvia, thanks for reminding me. Because the grill master isn't gluten-free, sometimes he's a pain, but worth keeping.

I didn't eat much tonight. I accidently had some soy today. That twists me up.

I made this tonight and must tell you it is sooooo good!!! It just so happened that I had leftover rice in the fridge so I didn't even have to cook it. I used shredded cheddar cheese and a medium-hot salsa on top. YUMMY! And another emergency meal (plus some to stash in the the freezer)

I also made a simple flourless chocolate cake today with a chocolate ganache glaze. Actually I made it for a get-together with friends tomorrow...but I'm going to sneak a piece tonight. I imagine it will be very rich as an 8" single layer cake makes 12 servings. :P

    • Need help with "positive" blood test results
      You'll want to keep an eye on all your vitamin levels, as absorption problems are quite common with gastritis. You've probably already looked it up, but this is the WebMD page on gastritis. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/digestive-diseases-gastritis  It's not the best article as they mention 'treating' it with antacids which is pretty much the opposite of helpful. (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2002/01/020115074441.htm) If the medication they were going to prescribe is an antibiotic, you might want to reconsider. If you have H. pylori, an antibiotic is the only sure way to get rid of it. If you don't get rid of the bacteria, the B12 deficiency will worsen.

      Yes, ATTITUDE, in all caps, and i am in the field of health care...!
    • TTg IAG > 100 but also Hasimoto's
      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
