Unexplained allergy-type reactions have prevented me cooking or eating several dinners this week -- very frustrating that the only thing that works for me is Benedryl and then it's off to snoozle-land for me.  Good thing my men cook too so I've had dinner for breakfast/lunch the past couple of days.

 

Tonight I am doing fairly well -- small reaction when I was out and about but seems to be ok with just inhaler -- so tonight will be tri-tip with garlic pasta and broccoli -- oh and left over pineapple mixed up cake from the other night.

Zippity Doo Daa!

 

I aced my Bio final even though I was falling asleep at my desk due to Benedryl to counteract the allergic-type reactions I've had this past week!!!  and I am such a PITA that the professor emailed me to tell me as he knew I'd be tracking him down to find out :D

 

Teaching the son to make chili got post-poned so we are about to do it right now for dinner tonight :)

Wooooohooooski!!!!!!!!

Isn't it great to be back?

Having my own little celebration here. Just got out my map and thread, and I walked 10 and a half miles today. As well as half a day volunteering. And watching The Great Gatsby. (I loved it. And I think I have an idea for a new cabana boy).

Hope you had seconds of that cake. You are just awesome.

wow! whoohoo for you too! 10.5 miles! kudos, lady! You're pretty awesome yourself. :wub:

 

welllll.........since we're reporting our "feats" today :D --I lifted 7,500 lbs. today (that's 10 strength-training machines, 75 lbs. X 10 reps) (SKI, check my math!) 

 

and biked 1.5 miles in 15 mins. and walked 1 mile  in under 20 mins..

Not bad for someone who could not even walk a block or tie her own shoes not long ago.

 

 

The GG is one of my top 10 all- time fave American novels and I hope I will enjoy it too. I usually like all the movies you like, so I expect I will.

Confirmed 7500 pounds -- jeez Irish -- thought you were a bit tired from all the hauling!  and you walked and rode too -- these lungs of mine better be happy tomorrow so I can catch you two.

 

The cake turned into triple chocolate cake with peppermint buttercream frosting...the men hate it when I do that ;)

 

PS...the new GG is well -- pretty swell....saw it in 3D with youngest son and sister ... so it felt like we were partying right along with elite sponges that were entertained by JD.  I was re-reading the novel before the movie -- still have a bit to go...been juggling several books lately -- nice to have a brain that can follow more than one thread these days!

A bunch of fun women(and the occasional adventurous male) discussing pompoms, wine, final exams, NASCAR, robotics, their children, their boyfriends, their cabana boys, their asshat neighbors, wine, book and movie reviews, their crazy ass mothers-in-law, wine, cake disasters, lessons in Croatian, why arugula is both delicious and fun to say, the many ways to use bacon, the many ways to use cheese, adventures in kitchen mishaps,  (did I mention wine?), the weather, skiing, the news--good and bad, how crock pots saved the world, humidity and how it makes your hair curl and your hands swell, the absurdity of Canadian snow, why tomatoes are not fun a food group to lose, and all the endless encouragement for any victory, from the very small to the ginormous?

 

...oh, wait, you probably meant the ways our brains and bodies rebound off poison! yeah, baby, that's the coolest stuff!!!  :lol:

 

Dinner tonight:

A chicken on the counter-top rotisserie, steamed asparagus, taters for the hubs. It's too hot to spark up the oven and I just cleaned it and I want it spiffy and shiny.

 

Why, you ask?  our first potential buyer comes today. Called before the house was even officially on the market .

Why, you ask? I told you........... the asshat neighbors would gossip and the word would spread.....

okay, looks like I am talking to myself for 2 days here... :lol: hello? echo echo echo....

 

So, MW! I saw Gatsby today. (it's been pouring rain for 3 damn days,and since the hubs had no golf game, we thought

lunch and a movie made sense)

 

It was very true to the novel and wildly creative. Loved it!

 

Dinner is veggie pizza. It's Friday and I am lazy. :) 

 

I have been trialing fresh toms....so far, so good. whoohooo!

I have no idea yet what is for dinner. My husband is working tonight at the grocery store closest to home and I told him to surprise me. :ph34r:

 

Wednesday I woke up sick as a dog. Just nauseous and icky. I felt mildly better yesterday, until I had horrid pain in my lower right side which sent us to the ER. At this point I was like score, I get to have my appendix out... nope. Turns out that they have no freakin clue what the hell is wrong with me. They sent me home drugged up and it still hurts today, just not the curl up in a ball in bed and cry kind of hurt. They did a CT and found absolutely nothing that could cause this. So frustrating!

 

At least I'm a little less nauseous again today so eating won't be difficult to manage at all unless that comes back. (Which is good because the only manufacturer I could get in contact with today for generic zofran told me it is made of wheat and the name brand is like $75 with my insurance. Um.... I'd rather vomit.)

Yay!!! Pizza and movie date...sounds like a purr-fect Friday :)

 

Addie...feel better...glad you are less queezy!!!

 

We had surprise visit from my daughter and the grands....and the parents let us keep the kids all day...they haven't had a date day in over a year....we have had a blast....my men are wonderful uncles and now all are at the park while I prepare bathtime -- then I will hug them, my daughter and her hubby and send them on their merry way.... :D

 

oh dinner for the pipsqueaks was chicken, pears, asparagus and grilled cheese.  uncles are having street tacos that one made...hubby has money in his pocket for a rare gluten treat once he switches the cars back later.  hmmm...i think i will have wine.

Lately I have been eating this recipe a lot, because it is easy to make: in a pot you put some canned chickpeas, tomato sauce with sour cream mixed in, along with some spices (garlic powder, pepper, herbs, cumin etc.)

Then you just heat it up for a few minutes. I usually eat it with rice and kale.

Welcome DJS!

 

Nice to see a new face in this thread this morning -- come back often -- we mix chit-chat with what we are having for dinner.

 

Tonight the youngest is having an all nighter -- can't call them sleepovers when they are seniors in HS ;) 

 

Lots and lots of ribs, mac and cheese, broccoli and some sort of cake!

We had a lovely sunny but chilly day yesterday, and wednt with assorted family to the zoo. It quite a small one, with a lovely playpark. We all had a great time.

Lunch and tea were brown rice, boiled eggs, olives, salad leaves, tomatoes.

Addy, hope you are feeling better.

The more I think about Gatsby, the more I like it. Spectacular.

Grands sound fun ski :)

I would see Gatbsy again! shall we go next week? I love the roaring 20's

The closest I came was playing Flo the Flapper in a production of Good News. LOL 

 

Mw, Your day sounds lovely!!, 

 

It's been raining for days and days and if we still had all the wood we disposed of, we could build an ark. :blink:

People are coming to look at the house today and told the agent to make them take their shoes off. I am tired of wiping the floor

of assorted footprints..... and pawprints.(but that's our Bella's fault LOL)

 

Dinner will be bison chili because it's easy and can cook while I have to leave the house for this "showing".

People walking through my home feels "creepy"--especially when it's the jerkface neighbor's family coming to gawk.

I am not pleased, but the hubs says "who cares? their money is green....". I do not share this logical wisdom.

Movie Date!!!

 

We all go at the same time wherever we are....hmmm across the pond could make this complex...but would be cheaper for me as I would get the before noon discount!!!  Ok...maybe we shoot for the same day -- what's the next "girlie" movie coming out?  I'll check....or we could do a book club --- maybe start with some oldies, but goodies and give everyone plenty of time to read!

 

Last night turned to steak night for eight men and two ladies...I bonked feeding 7 eighteen year olds all day -- so I bought a huge top sirloin roast that hubby carved into steaks -- bibity bobity steak for 9 on a shoestring.

 

Tonight will be ribs...they are soaking in pineapple juice as I type...slow roast then finish on the BBQ.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Asparagus

Lemon "Brownies" -- stupid name for something similar to lemon squares....

 

Happy Sunday Everyone :)

Any one make some good baked beans. The kind you put bacon or ham in? I think I can buy some from a local BBQ restaurant but I haven't checked the gluten-free status from them today.

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding is that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes in bowel movements (sorry if tmi) but they rarely last more than a couple of weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!    
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up.

      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.
