Last day of whole30 today, and feeling great even though the time of the month is due :).

Tomorrow, cheese :) :). Oh, and weigh in...

Tonight's dinner:

I've got a Turkey breast on the rotisserie

spaghetti squash

maybe some peas for a change?

I am so proud of you, MW. ;) You never wavered once in your resolve. (you know I had to mix it up a bit when I had to delete the high histamine foods, but you supported me too!) and so, I am very excited for you that you have reached your goal.

You must need a new belt by now (you can only poke so many new holes in it)!

Good on you, girl!! whoohooo!

Do let me know how that cheese tastes!! (I still can't have that ) but I may have a bite of two of vanilla ice cream

I'm using left over chicken that I Roasted yesterday and making chicken fettuccine Alfredo. Another of my favorite. Meals. And I got these garlic and herb bagel crisp things for the side. Then mixed fresh fruit for desert.

Yummers.

Leftover soup. Today is a long school day, so no time to cook. It'll probably be better second day anyway.

Mmm I like 2nd day soups and stews.

Not sure about dinner yet, but nearly had chaos at kids teatime. We had their friends round, and I checked if there was ice cream in the freezer, did a big ' who wants ice creeeeeam?' only then to discover that it was in fact a very nice frozen stew in an old tub. Whoops. Yogurt is good, but not quite the same. Luckily they were all having fun and I got away with it...

Whew...that could have been cause for a kiddie uprising!! I'd have bawled my eyes out if you offered it, then said "sorry, none left".

:mellow: of course, I have put my yogurt in the freezer for a while and had "frozen yogurt"...sort of....

I have no idea what is for supper. At this point I am thinking a single serve bag of lime & salt popcorn and a huge glass of milk. Yesterday was the third day in a row of getting a half foot of snow off my Jeep, then sitting in an uncomfortable chair for something like 7 hours. I am just too beat for food. I guess the good news is that today we have some blue skies with a few puffy white clouds and it is super warm, it was already 35 when I went out for milk at 10 this morning.

Somewhere, deep down inside of me, there is excitement for you two. Maybe after a nap I'll find it. :lol:

Ok...perfect solution for L2T...my best bud is currently residing on a sailboat in the gulf of mexico....here is her latest blog -- oh and today's temp is 80 no humidity.

http://rockysoceanad...a.html?spref=fb

edited to add -- four cabin sailboat with a darn nice kitchen ;)

I'm typing this from the aircraft - I'm almost there! Shucks...it was all a dream. <_< Today was the same as yesterday at -34C and windchill making it -45C. Unless you have not been in -30 temps you have not experienced cold.

Love the sounds of 80F and no humidity and "...darn nice kitchen". Does it have a KA stand mixer? A Vitamix? :lol:

Last night I did dessert for first time in a long time (we don't need it). But our plums are ripe and they are those big meaty red ones, yummy thingers they are. So I did a plum crumble with cinnamon and O.M.G. I can't decide if it is best plain, with Greek yogurt, or with ice cream. :D

I certainly have. When i lived in MT it wasn't that uncommon to get it a few times a winter. I also experienced it a year and a half ago when i was still in the dorms at my school. Long story short, heat went out, then came back on a few hours later, then i heard a pop... ignored it... heard it again. I went to investigate and the sprinkler above my door in the hallway had water leaking out of it. Water flooded into my bath (on the other side of the wall from the hallway) and into the little hallway in my room. Got to clean that mess up myself because there was a bigger break in another one of the dorm buildings (several inches of water). The other "floodies" and i were set up in a hotel room for about 5 days while they cleaned up (and in my case, patched up the cealing in the bathroom and aired it out). Luckily, nothing of mine was damaged and my school decided to cancel all classes that day.

and did i mention i was the only one in my building that got flooded? Uhuh some luck huh? :lol:

This is why we moved to another state finally, so we could just visit cold, and then come home an hour and a half later to where it may frost but seldom snows. :)

It wasn't just the cold, it was the cold, the freezing rain ice storms in November-December that coated everything with a half inch of ice so you had to open every latch and gate with a propane torch, (and you just weren't going anywhere without 4whldr, I warmed my engine up once by building a charcoal fire underneath it to get the engine to start) the tornado warnings, the hail large enough to trash one's car, and the summer humidity with 95º F temps, and the alternate flooding and drought. The crazy neighbors were just the icing on the cake. I was talking about this the other day with the neighbors here, and they asked why does anyone live there, I said the land was pretty. We have really high summer temps here that would probably blow them away if they couldn't adapt, if the fire season and typical rainy winters didn't. I think a nice day is about 95º F in the summer, 80ºF feels chilly, because the temperature drops so dramatically at dusk. We seldom have "spring," it seems to transition immediately from when is winter going to be over, to time to irrigate because it's really hot. March can be a lot colder than January.

I still don't know what is for dinner. It is either leftover home made Indian Butter Chicken and rice, or scrambled eggs and homefries. All I know is that we had better eat some of that fresh pineapple for dessert. :P

My son was at Breckinridge yesterday, enjoying that snow! He doesn't have any classes on Thursdays!

Yeah we got about 2 or 3 inches. Enough to make me go slipping and sliding.

Soup again, the last of it. So heavenly. I'll have to pick up some more shell pasta for it now. It worked wonders! I cooked the pasta in the broth and it was heavenly (ancient harvest). I wouldn't do that with rice pasta though, i'd cook it seperate.

At least it is good for something besides annoying me! I'm hoping that Phil has some good news for us tomorrow morning and tells us that this winter crap is done with.

I've been inching up on my iodine, thinking that my DH outbreak was mostly due to a CC incident. Well last night my husband told me that popcorn isn't a proper dinner and I finally snapped and am testing. I broke down and flat out ate fish. I had a couple "breaded" filets in the freezer and I finally decided to find out if I can eat fish without dire results. Now... I wait.

Tonight, roasted chicken. And um... some sort of vegetable or something like that. Probably potatoes because roasted chickens mean gravy.

    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Now if everyone out there who probably has a gluten problem adopted your attitude, they would be having a much better life.  After over 10 years gluten-free myself, who really cares about gluten pizza? I go months without gluten free pizza, which is very good by the way, and I am not an emotional wreck.  Imagine!  Glad you feel better and yes, it was the wheat!

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
