Pitstop change....

hubby over ruled i&o - well for him because he still can eat other places - stopping in Burbank for panda express for him - i&o for guys and I'm sticking with salmon and beef jerky.

Tomorrow night - HUGE pot of turkey soup - cooked "Ralph" in Tahoe and have been draggin' his poor frozen bones all over the flippin' state!

Bonus - soup feeds the army of teens coming to band practice - wait - somebody send me back north please ;)

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

No food is. I am trying to determine if it was some sort of fluke or if I really can't eat it. It is worth finding out because it is one of the hub's favorite meals. I want to make him happy, and he hates eating something he knows I love so much in front of me so he hasn't had it since the incident. I am hoping that whatever it was happens to be related somehow to the mac & cheese I had eaten the day before (or two days, I'm too lazy to go look it up right now) as I was never able to pinpoint a cause for my pain. I assure you, I am not 100% crazy!

Thanks for the thoughts guys. Makes me feel good.

Just finished a hugh spinach and kale salad topped with egg, cheese, bacon, sunflower seeds and ranch dressing. My favorite thing in the world to eat.

Speaking of Alfredo, I remembered after I read it that I have chicken that I tucked into the freezer. Have my Thai rice noodles and Alfredo sauce. I'm set for tomorrow.

GAH!! It is past 3 and I have no stinkin clue what is for dinner. I have a block of pepperjack from the dairy that I get my milk from. Worst case scenario I will be 100% lazy and make quesadillas.

The alfredo was almost successful. It didn't make me sick, apparently I have become sensitive not only to soy proteins but to soy oil and it made me lose my vision again. <_< Imitrex at bedtime and I am feeling hungover today. I guess I'll just have to resort to making my own sauce, which I don't have a problem with but sometimes I just like how handy it is to say hey, I have this jar laying around my cupboard and don't feel like cooking. Now I have to watch my tyramine for a few days and can't eat my new chocolate almond butter so I'm a little pissy but I did bring it on myself.

Love seeing all this lovin' here! :)

Tonight we're having part of Fish and Chips - I am making a yummy crispy chip batter (not frying but baking) and homemade tartar sauce with scores of capers. Oh, and mushy peas. But no fries or onion rings. Instead we are having a simple classic Caesar salad (with homemade dressing of course). So, I suppose we're being sorta British and sorta American tonight. We like to play games at our house. ^_^

Oh, you poor dear girl. Isn't it funny how we try to remain optimistic and hopeful that something will work? Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes it may later on. Be well soon, K? We all need you! :(

Feel better Addie and quesadillas are not lazy -- throw a little something on top and it looks gourmet :)

Turkey Soup as planned with many, many mini muffin tins of pamelas bread -- usually treat hubby to fresh french bread on turkey soup night -- but some family along with son's band is here -- do not trust all those gluten eaters to use care ;)

Double like! Have to show that one to kids - they all make fun of my mousse :)

Of course they all devour it gladly when I don't provide other dessert option ;)

And I was a good girl that listened to my elders - never followed anyone that jumped off a bridge - I have, however...been the first to jump ;)

I'm copying this for tomorrow night....and no bungee jumping for me - that snap would fry my circuits - landing in water is the only way to jump off a bridge - oh don't forget to wear tennies to break the water :)

I had half an onion in the fridge so I fried it up, added some stewed tomatoes and put it over rice to go with my quesadilla. I have been neglecting my veggies lately because I have been worn down so much. I haven't been as responsible as I should be about my veggies lately and I need to knock it off.

Bungee jumping is on my list of things to do one day. It looks like a blast! I don't do water on my face so jumping into water won't cut it for me. :P I'm not sure exactly what it is that makes me say I'll jump off a bridge but there is no way I would ever jump out of a perfectly good airplane. I guess I'm just wired funny.

It was downright cold in Florida this weekend. (Really, I swear.) I made red beans and rice yesterday and have chili in the crock pot for tomorrow.

Former boyfriend known as "other" smoked a chicken today. I stuck 1/2 a lime and an onion in it. Had that with smashed potatoes and really awful gravy with salad. He's lucky. (So am I.)

I find this highly amusing. Men are always complaining that we expect them to read our minds, yet can't just make the most simple requests of us!

(but I'll keep my opinions about those poor burgers to myself.)

Hey, welcome back buddy, you went to the gym? Well, I think I need some of that whole30 thing. Oh, wait, I already did. 2 people I haven't seen since before I started said how well I look today :)

Great news, really great. Isn't it great when you ache like a normal person, because you used some muscles to exercise?

Dinner was sloooow cooked beef, broccoli and carrots.

Seasoned boneless skinless chicken thighs with a plain baked sweet potato and rosemary roasted brussel sprouts tonight.

I think brussel sprouts, asparagus and sweet potatoes are three of my new favorite foods. Yum!!!

    • Hi Kircket, Welcome to the forum! Yes, he could be wrong.  Not everyone passes the blood tests.  And they are just one part of the diagnostic process anyway, although an important one.   Did you have the complete celiac antibodies panel? Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA If you didn't have the full celiac disease antibodies test panel, I'd insist on getting it done.  There have been numerous people on the forum who tested positive on one antibody but not on others.
    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
    • Sigh. I totally do love the packs of stretch pants at Costco though...
    • hey, i'm vegetarian and gluten free as well
      have you tried making any recipes with cashew nuts like cashew cheese or pasta sauce? they're really good, easy to make and an excellent way to get more protein/iron
      i can send you some of the easy recipes if you like  
    • Right, fistulas or fissures are usually associated with Crohns, but not celiac.  It is not impossible to have both conditions though.
