Peanut butter and honey on a rice cake with steamed carrots.

I fell asleep on the couch on accident (so didn't plan it) and forgot to lay some meat out. I did remember to run the dishwasher though.

That would just be a little snack for me - my stomach seems to be a bottomless hole! :lol:

If i eat too much my GERD acts up bad, if i eat too little it does the same. I've found some balance at least. I will admit i've eaten very little today. I've been slowly trying to increase what i eat, but yeah.... its been hard.

I might munch on something else, but i doubt it.

I had pot roast tonight too. I had a roast (not pot roast though :( ) two nights ago. If it is a condition I have it pretty bad. I hope there is no cure and I am okay with it worsening over time. I had a baked potato and carrots with mine. Slathered that tater with fresh butter from raw milk. Slathered everything else in copious amounts of gravy.

Following this with a fat old slice of chocolate cake with chocolate mint icing in a bit. No nuts, beans, regular dairy, whole eggs? No problem!

I'll try to make a chinese beef thingy with chopped beef, onions, gluten-free soy sauce (for realz), black pepper, garlic and carrots.

Grain free diet is working very well insofar, and I still got to eat tons of yummy stuff, and I go throughout the day with my stomach flat as a ruler. The constipation has not yet resolved completely, but I will wait and see.

i'm planning on adding cabbage and carrots to it (i do eat other veggies btw, broccoli, squash, califlower, ect, but i adore this combo and its kinda cheap eats).

I'm proud of myself. By 3:30 i had the meat cut up, browned, and the stalk going. Yay! So i'll be able to eat dinner at a decent time.

I'm drinking raw milk because it isn't contaminated with iodine. Other than that I am dairy free. I already know how to make my own butter thanks to being a farm girl but I'm cheese free until I learn to make some. Lucky me the store I buy my milk at is having a cheese making class tonight. I'm such a cheese addict. I've always suspected I have a dairy issue because it makes me gassy, but this raw milk doesn't. Raw milk also contains lactase, which processed milk doesn't. So I guess there is my answer, I am lactose intolerant. I suppose I'll have to stick with raw milk for life. Oh woe is me. :lol:

I'm clarifying my statement. I don't mean to say all raw milk or anything like that. I simply mean the raw milk that I am able to buy isn't contaminated with iodine. I don't want someone to wander along, read this and think gee, raw milk is iodine free and go buy some that isn't. It simply isn't true of all raw milk.

I'm wondering, Addy, where in the milk-producing process is iodine added?

Iodine is not an issue for me so I never had to research it, am now very

curious. :D

I believe they clean the udders with it.

At any rate, leftovers for dinner.

A betadine wash is generally used to clean the cows. It doesn't hurt anything to just leave it on them, and so that is what happens. The diary I use washes the cows twice to get it off of them. I was shocked that this was something I didn't know before having grown up in a close knit farming community in PA. Of course, many there simply have very small farms and sell raw milk also so maybe they don't do it.

Chicken salads tonight. I'm thinking I may make my husband grab me a can of pumpkin on his way home and we'll make some pumpkin milkshakes. Not exactly first measurable snow fare, but its what I planned without checking weather reports.

    • I doubt it. I would think that would be a questions for the company that make them.    But if smoking makes you feel bad....and you are able to quit for several weeks at a time....why go back to it?
    • Hi. I've noticed that after a break of smoking (2-3 weeks) I feel bad, when I begin to smoke again.  Maybe they contain some additives with gluten??
    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer
