where's the protein? Cake for dinner or breakfast is OK once in awhile, but you consistently eat small amounts of foods and call it a meal. This isn't good for your health.

I can't eat big meals, unfortunately. So I know I'm just snacking along the day and never having a full meal but when I do, I get bloated and uncomfortable for hours. It has been resolving at a good rate ever since I decided to go grain free. Eating cake with carrots was an utopia one week ago. Either I had the cake, or the carrots. The tea? Only a few sips of it.

At any rate, I will wait an hour and fetch some chicken breast leftovers.

Really? because I am not really "sensing this joy" at all. :lol:

Chill, I could not be any happier for you, babe! I know how long your journey with food intolerances --besides the celiac--has been.

So, yes...I am thrilled for you!

Go, chilly, Go chilly, Go chilly! (wish I had a pom-pom girl emoticon)

cooking for us and food to take to my parents.

I made some pumpkin spice cookies. Some for us & some for my folks.

Made a batch of beef stew in the crockpot, mostly for my parents, but will keep at least 1 big serving for left- over night or M's lunch.

Making tortillas soup with lots of chicken, corn and black beans for us. my folks wouldn't like it.

Made extra chicken in the crockpot ( some for the tortilla soup) to make some chicken potato soup for my folks and some left over for us.

husband was hunting all weekend, so i ate everything (leftovers) in the fridge :) and i made a big tray of eggplant rollatini (which he hates eggplant) so i have been wearing that out. he came in last night and we had shrimp francese w/rice and artichoke w/garlic butter. now, he is off trailer-trucking. can i eat the rest of the leftovers by the time he does 3000 miles??? i believe i can......

got 80 lbs of venison at the processor's - gotta make room in the freezer!!! i took out a package that said 'chops' - turns out it is 'loin' - i was going to slice it thin, marinate it and grill it on skewers but he said *wrong* cut of meat?? so, what to do with venison loin?? (marinate it whole and cook it rare??) any i'deer's ?? :D

Found this idea on the net:

Recipe: Roast Loin of Venison

Categories: None

Yield: 6 Servings

GARNETT PJXG05A

1/2 Bay leaf -- crushed

1 Loin roast venison

1/2 ts Celery seeds

1/2 lb Salt pork -- cut into

Strips

1/2 ts Dry thyme

1 sm Onion -- chopped

To

10 ml Garlic -- minced

4 Whole cloves

1 tb Fresh parsley -- chopped

1 ts Beef bouillon

Taste

Fold 2 large sheets of aluminum foil together with a double fold. There should be enough to enclose the roast. Place roast on foil. Lard with pork strips. Stick cloves into loin and sprinkle other ingredients over top. Enclose roast tightly in foil and cook in 300 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes PER pound.

Have you tried any of the venison yet? If so, is it very gamey? Sometimes I find it deplorably gamey but other times it can be very good. I love good venison and one of my favourite ways to do it is to make a blackberry (or cherry or other slightly tart berry) gastrique. A loan recipe that is very good is Roasted Venison with Blackberry Sage Sauce...very appropriate for your cut.

Please let us know what the flavour is like. I am very curious!

Leftover roast chicken from last night but am re-purposing with almost a picatta sauce over celeriac/potato puree and steamed green beans. Add to that amazing Italian breadsticks I baked this morning that are soft on the inside with a great brown crisp crust.

Could you share your chicken potato soup recipe? I hate the rice noodles, but loved chicken soup. With potatoes, I think it would be a good soup for me. :)

Could be made without the milk. Really tastes best if it sits overnight in the fridge. You could add veggies. You would want to pre-cook them and put them in after the blender part.

Chunky Chicken Potato Soup

3 med potatoes, peeled & cubed

2 cups chopped onion

4 cups water

1 tbps chicken flavored bouillion granules (I use 2 packets of Herb Ox)

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

2 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast (about 1 lb of boneless)(I like to put it in the blender and make it really tiny pieces)

¼ cup skim milk

Shredded cheddar

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients & bring to a boil. Cover & reduce heat. Simmer about 30 minutes until potatoes are tender.
  2. Place half the potato mixture in an electric blender. Process until smooth.
  3. Add pureed mixture, chicken & milk back into pot. Heat.
  4. Top with shredded cheddar.
  5. Best eaten the next day, re-heated.

Just a piece of grilled fish and a glass of passionfruit juice. Not in the mood to eat, to be honest. I tried to eat some rice at lunch to see if I still could handle grains, but I am bloated and uncomfortable and have been like this the entire afternoon.

Grain free it is.

Today I made queso fresco. Chicken tacos and fried cheese for supper. The waiting is killing me!!! I didn't get around to the cheese until this afternoon and it is just about time to go check on it again. I think I may just unwrap that cheesecloth and get into it anyway.

I also made some fresh butter again. This time I'm using the butter with some peppermint marshmallows and Cocoa Pebbles to make krispy treats. Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Just got my 1st crockpot!!

So, fingers crossed pork (loin!) with leeks onions carrots with sage and tarragon. Put a few bits of potato, hoping it will thicken a bit.

More excited than is reasonable :)

    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.    
    • Thanks for the replies so far everyone, much appreciated Great, another doctor gets it wrong, how many more times can they make a mess of this diagnosis process?! Bloating had gone down a bit in these first few days of cutting the gluten so I guess expect that to come back. It's one way to have a farewell tour of the gluten foods I guess - if a little or a lot makes no difference may as well go all-in... The doctors didn't diagnose this at all, Google did. If I trusted in the health professionals I'd be blaming the symptoms all on stress and having counselling for it whilst the fire raged on inside me due to a clinical condition they'd missed. Just glad one of doctors agreed to run the test on second time of asking to keep me quiet as much as anything. Believe me I've read that newbie thread multiple times, as well as numerous others around the web. Been doing nothing but since Tuesday when the blood test results came back and each time I go into the comments sections a little bit more of me gives up inside. Seems so many don't ever heal and so many associated complications too. The reality looks bleak apart from a lucky few it seems. In the nicest possible way the vegetarian choice is non-negotiable, it's a core part of what I believe and the thought of eating any form of animal \ fish flesh would make me physically sick (sorry meat eaters) so will have to find some way around it, how I don't know yet. Perhaps lots of this... http://www.pulsin.co.uk/pea-protein-isolate.html The cooking bit is a concern as it's something none of us do well at home, adds to the feeling of being completely lost right now. I kick myself for the decision that lead to the stress as I could've avoided all this. The only thing I can cling onto there is that I was having some pains in the side before that time which I blamed on a muscle strain... maybe that was the early stages, in which case I could feel a bit better knowing it had just come on gradually. With the biopsy and gluten from what I read the villi take a long time to heal up so they'd still see that. With the blood test result as definitive as it was surely the disease is pretty much confirmed? How can it heal enough for non eating gluten to throw a biopsy result yet on the flip side take over a year to heal (that sounds like the best case scenario time-wise from what I've read). Not suggesting anyone is wrong for one second but need to understand how that works with what's going on inside to make any sense of this situation.
