oops forgot to mention dinner...

 

Tri Tip on the Q

Zu noodles for me - angel hair with lots of garlic and butter for the men

Broccoli

 

They are still working on minty fudge cake for dessert -- I am having a few M&Ms -- small amounts of soy seem to be ok -- I am whispering that because last time I bragged about my red lentil experiment I got schooled the next day ;)

I realized while I was on my way to the eye doctor that I forgot to get dinner out of the freezer. So, Costco chicken since we were going there anyway, with roasted taters and bread. OMG the most amazing bread. If you saw someone squealing like a little girl in your local Costco this evening over gluten free bread, that was me.

hey...what was that i heard?  high pitched squealing :D

 

nothing deserves a squeal as much as great gluten-free bread.

For some reason i cannot do those chickens (i've only had Sams clubs ones, labeled gluten-free). They give me the worst bellyaches. :(

I do not take those chickens at all for granted. I count my lucky stars every time I have one. I just sort of panicked when I realized that my planned dinner was still in the freezer. I guess I know what I'll have tomorrow at least. :D

Glad you had an easy dinner Addie.

 

I can't do those chickens YET -- my celi kids can -- Grandparents buy them and throw them towards my door knowing it is easy food for the teens regularly grazing at my home - and I am grateful every time.

Bahahaha!! This just makes me envision some cartoony old people throwing a chicken at a door to a house and just as it falls onto the front step the door opens and then a host of hungry children fall up on the chicken like ravenous wolves. Pretty much sums up feeding hungry teens.

Sadly not far off.  I always point out when we are watching zombie shows....how similar zombies are to hungry young men....they will even push their girls aside for food!

 

ps...then apologize to said girls when mom slaps them upside the head - lovingly ;)

Why is it the simplest soups taste the best? Salt, pepper, beef, olive oil (for cooking beef), and some carrots.

The squeal heard as far away as Florida! yaay!! .  :lol:  I missed something, I'm sure--- but what bread was it that made you so excited?

Costco chicken is safe, then.... good to know.

 

Last night, we had amazingly succulent stone crab claws, roasted asparagus and the last encore piece of flourless chocolate cake. I let the big guy have most of it (the night before, I was awake for 3 hours in the middle of the night from those pesky high histamines. ack!)

 

So, gang---I met another GFreer at the local cafe and we invited her to eat lunch with us. She had never met a fellow celiac. (makes us sound like a rare exotic species, doesn't it?) :lol: We could have talked all afternoon, but suffice to say, she was happy to chat with someone who "gets it". She had nasty muscle pain so bad, she was bed ridden. Figured it out and is better after 3 years. Another warrior princess. I suggested she hop on the c.com boat.  

 

Headed for the beach, but I send my profound sympathies to those getting snow today. I dread returning north in two weeks blech and. ugh!

 

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING, EVERYONE!! xx

I found bread from The Essential Baking Company. Never heard of them before. I posted some nonsense about it over in the products section. I don't know if anyone remembers that kind of whole wheat bread that was full of like sunflower seeds and other seeds and oats and all that? Well, this is kinda like that but minus the oats. It is full of all sorts of seeds and stuff but still soft and fluffy. You can actually put your hand on top of the whole loaf and squish it down a little. :o Oh, and you buy it shelf stable for something like 4 months (mine is good til July) and no preservatives. Best part? We paid $8 for TWO LOAVES!!! I'm still walkin on sunshine.

 

Still sounds like Florida is agreeing with you. Hopefully we'll have a new friend here soon.

 

Mac and cheese sounds perfect, I may have to make some. Our plan is for chicken cheddar bacon ranch salads. But I suppose that mac and cheese could go with that right?

:lol: I've never tried that combo before (steak and M&C). Generally when i do a Steak its normally just said steak with a veggie.

Remove the ranch from that salad and i'd eat it.

 

Mac and cheese would go nicely with that.

I think by now, we all know this....bacon goes with everything!!

 

ADDY

The warm sunshine, ocean air and seeing my best friend does indeed agree with me....more than I can adequately say.

 

The constant muscle/joint/bone pain level I deal with daily? Well, it went from an "ok, I'm smiling through the pain because no one likes a whiner level" 7 to a" holy crap, this doesn't make me wanna rip my own legs and arms off" level  4. :lol:  Sun? Vit D? Not freezing cold and gray in the great northeast for months? Not sitting at the laptop hunched over for 5 hours a day? maybe a combo factor? who knows?

 

I'LL TAKE IT......  and we looked at new construction today.....

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      The DGP IGG and TTG IGG versions of the celiac tests.  
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      I am also IgA deficient. My doc took more blood and looked at 2-3 other markers in the blood work , transglutinase, and 2 others. My biopsy showed blunted cilia in sm intestine, but my IgA was low. He suspected Celiac due to cilia so ordered other blood tests. I also presented atypically, burny stomach and reflux...and very little else.
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      If you have Celiac Disease, and you are IgA deficient, what do they check on your labs to make sure you are not being "glutened"?

      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.
    • Weird Reaction
      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
