Well hellooo

Salmon, sweet potato carrots, broccoli.

But I want that pizza.

This whole30 is doing weird things now, I am craving stuff, including things I don't even like. Keeping going.

If you start wanting things like moose brains, elmer's glue or bat guano, call me and I'll talk you out of it.

I had to make my flourless chocolate ganache cake for my Mum's Birthday. It smells like heaven in here :unsure: and I can't even have any of it....plus I have to eat out in two restaurants this weekend while traveling. Wish me luck--and a giant gluten deflecto shield.

I'm sorta kinda here. I haven't been sleeping well so mostly I'm a zombie and lurking. Last night I managed maple glazed pork chops with rice and steamed corn. I had picked up a pack of 5 chops and my husband seemed to think I would cook 2 yesterday and the rest tonight. Yeah... I just cooked them all and tonight I'll throw them in the oven to get them warm and make a little more glaze for them. I may even find a frying pan in a cupboard somewhere for some green beans.

I did get pretty excited yesterday though. The tank at the dairy busted and I spent most of a week without milk then they were only letting people buy a single gallon on Monday so I had to ration. Yesterday the store got another delivery and they were letting people buy 2 gallons, so I did and I've been drinking as much as I want. I even finally made my Tazo cocoa last night sweetened with brown sugar. So good!

Dinner tonight.... Pizza for the guys and a small steak and veggies for me.

Intermittent fasting was an epic fail. I gained weight.....carbs are not my friends:(. Planned to give it 6 weeks but had to cut my losses. ( or gain)

Going back to what is tried and true for me-- Paleo. I feel the smelling the cake, G.

Darn good thing I like almonds.....

Seriously. *one day* of Paleo and I can feel the bloat going down. My late afternoon exhaustion was much, much less today too.

Oh yes. 2 weeks on this whole 30 plan and I saw a major difference. It was rocky at first, but now, I see: no more bloating and a weight loss (I suspect )and much better sleep. I also learned I have a histamine issue and I took those HH foods out which helped reduce the burning sensations in my skin and bones AND I learned that (and this is no surprise) I really, really like sugary treats and cheese ...and cocktails.......... and chocolate and cream in my coffee and I miss them all .

:lol: so much "self discovery".. I did have brown rice one day because I lost so many foods from the repertoire and felt like I needed the fiber, but now I am not so sure. Still experimenting and I dumped the rice again.

HUBS LIKED THE PIZZA!

I used chebe pizza mix for the dough.

Recipe is here: (Please note: It contains white bean puree for those of us who are legume free!!)

Well, I was laughing and smiling with you too ( the hubs said he could hear me in the other room)

I figure, whenever anyone laughs, it's always a good thing.

I have become an emoticon thief, liberally pilfering from the internet. :lol:

YOU. ARE. AMAZING.

Keep up the great work. We all :wub: you.

Eating back to normal, cravings vanished. Phew. Roast chicken, rotabaga, cauliflower, carrots, mange tout.

I am eating loads of the veg I don't normally have because Mr Mindwarp isn't keen. I decided as I am cooking 2 or more different meals I would do stuff I like.

Just roasted sweet potatoes and onions while the oven was on, and couldn't resist an onion. Who would have thought that a roasted caramelized onion would be better than candy.

I don't even mind.now that everyone else had ice cream for dessert. My onion was fantastic :)

Hip Hooray for Colleen being back!

We just climbed in the car again 8.5 hours and we'll be home :)

Dinner was at lunch today

Chicken roasted with apples and onions, Japanese sweet potato and broccoli

Dinnertime will be In&Out -- probably central valley area

I so love In&Out but haven't been there in forever. Burgers all wrapped up in lettuce, fries the way they were meant to be, just potatoes... fried, and shakes that make your hips 2 inches wider just while ordering. Maybe we need to plan an evening out this week. :D

It has been a while (feels like a while) since my whole incident involving mac & cheese and a follow up with alfredo. So, to that end I am testing the alfredo waters tonight. Crossing my fingers and hoping that in a few hours I am not curled up in a ball on the floor in agony vomiting. :ph34r:

Darling, I love you, but I have to ask- how is alfredo worth that?

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
