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 ;)

Pictures and recipes are not required...although quite beautiful...many of us do enjoy the chat part of this thread -- occasional pics are fun but not necessary.

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.....

    • I doubt it. I would think that would be a questions for the company that make them.    But if smoking makes you feel bad....and you are able to quit for several weeks at a time....why go back to it?
    • Hi. I've noticed that after a break of smoking (2-3 weeks) I feel bad, when I begin to smoke again.  Maybe they contain some additives with gluten??
    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer
