ummmmm -- perhaps it is just me -- but that sounds like a pretty good deal :D

;) tom sawyer and painting the fence...

I need to try dairy free properly, hence I am trying to fit 30 days worth of cheese in by Monday. I love stilton and believe it is a reasonable ingredient for any meal.

oh boy, a cheese splurge! enjoy!

Stilton is delicious and I could see you putting it in just about anything, except maybe a smoothie. :unsure:

I'm back on the Whole 30 come Jan. 1. It's a bit radical, but it helps to "reset" and determine what foods may be giving you grief.

If you want, we can "buddy up" via PMs and if one of us cracks, well, we can be supportive---or say screw it, eat a bunch of cheese and crackers and drink wine and be miserable failures together. :D Sound like a plan?

Cool, cheese buddies it is. Oh no, maybe I missed the point... Sounds great, though I think I am starting 2nd . Maybe the whole 29. Can you tell I am not good with rules?

had to tell you all....

I rode my bike this morning for the first time in 9 months, 2 days and 1 hour -- rode with the sun rising and the moon setting -- 2013 is going to be an awesome year :)

Oh...we are having salmon and zu-noodles for dinner ;)

January has 31 days, so the 2 nd might be correct?

I will be posting about cheese laden dinners every day in January ( whether we are eating them or not!). smiley-evilgrin0011.gif

Do you just boil strips of zucchini like a pasta noodle? My SIL might like this. Maybe she should offer that in her " healthy" restaurant . She is diabetic and has to watch the carbs. She makes pizza with a cauliflower/ cheese crust.

She liked it and her teen son liked it. It isn't low cal because its still full of cheese in her recipe. I'm looking thru my recipes for a moz stick one I have misplaced. If I see that, I'll post it so you can see if its the same.

I would like that. I sometimes add some frozen zuc to stuff for me. I can "hide" it in a few recipes. In the crockpot, if you cut it small, it cooks to mush.

okay, I see you are starting with the right attitude, there MW, already looking for ways to cheat (my kind of girl) ....But, it would still be 30, since there are 31 days in Jan. Can you tell I am very good at rationalizing cheating?

I am standing up and applauding you right now, Ski . I am over the moon happy for you because I know full well what this means to you.

And next summer, when I ride mine, you will cheer me too. Get some of those streamers that dangle from the hand grips

I zink that pozzibly the zu-noodles are making you zippy!

I do that too. It's pretty good, but really doesn't taste like potatoes to me. I can't fake myself into that one.

I think I'll make lasagna casserole tonight. 1 bowl, 5 min prep, done. Not in the mood to cook tonight :rolleyes:

Carne Adovado that had been marinating in my fridge for 1 1/2 days and will now cook for 12 hours. Probably some hot water cornbread and rice with tomatoes cooked in it. Or maybe corn spoonbread? Haven't decided yet whether I want to fry (HW cornbread) or bake (spponbread).

Having looked at pictures of both, and having quite an unhealthy affinity for fried foods, I vote frying. The pictures look divine! I didn't know such a thing exists, now I want some.

My plan was burgers on arepas. I'm sort of rethinking that now.

Sounds like total party food to me. After Karen's we'll hit your place.

I was making

Veal marsala and Risotto Milanese and sauteed chard, but now, I am not so sure.

I want what you're all having. :D

Last night, I made "everything but the kitchen sink nachos"

(you know, refried beans, jalapenos, guac, olives, chicken, salsa, sour cream, etc ...anything I found in the fridge....goes on top)

Have to get in all my cheese consumption before Jan.2. :)

I have family coming in from out of state and we are all getting together tonight. They had the idea for a big mexican dinner. I'm making black bean and corn salsa, Crossing fingers. chicken enchiladas with a cheese, sour cream sauce with green chiles. I cannot have tomoato, so I'm getting creative.

And you could have some tomato salsa to pass for those who like it! But it sounds yummy to me.

Not sure how strictly you are not eating tomatoes, I like Pacific Spicy Black Bean Soup ( not spicy really) for enchilada sauce. It does have some tomato paste in it.

Margaritas coming up!

I love that J used bacon on the nachos. cool idea! . I put bacon in some chicken quesadillas recently.yum.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE black beans. Did I ever share the black bean and turkey chili recipe on here? very good stuff.

CKip, I had to give up tomatoes --and all citrus ---for a year (that really sucked) and I found them hard to work around, and I hope you get them back someday.

I have Two suggestions for you:

(1) http://givemesomefoo...oes_we_don.html

and

(2)

Mango Pineapple Salsa

1 mango, diced small

1/2 pineapple, diced small

1/2 red onion, diced small

1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced

small bunch fresh chopped cilantro

juice of 1 lime

Mix together.

Good with corn chips, on grilled chicken or fish, too.

Have a wonderful family gathering!

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
