Amen to that!!

 

I've had several people ask me about gluten free to lose weight because of the "Wheat Belly" book or a DR told them to go by this book!!! "This sounds like what you do"  UGH!!!!! I told them all okay, sure, I'll help you, I went gluten free and gained 40 pounds! I'm gluten free! Allergy free! Sorry, Its a thorn in my side.

 

On another calm note :) I'm having a simple baked potato and some chicken broth. Not feeling so good lately. I make black beans with jalapeno pepper, green onions, fresh garlic, and cumin. I do okay eating this with rice. Two days ago I added some gluten-free corn chips!! Not a good idea....I keep thinking I can slip corn in there.

 

 

Feel better soon :)

Tonight we're going out to an event and we're taking anti-pasto (tomatoes, mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, capsicum, olives) and rice crackers, but we're having a big lunch at my brother's today because it's not overly filling.  It will be a fun night though.

Last night:

 

Carnitas Burrito Bar

Refried White and Kidney Beans

Salad

 

Strawberry Cake for dessert.

 

We (the hubby part of we) has successfully delayed breaking concrete to replumb our kitchen for a short time....

 

I ought to be more careful what I wish for....was researching how to utilize our laundry room grey water for my new veggie garden -- lol -- I was thinking perhaps we'd have it set up by Fall to grow winter veggies....once we build the raised beds etc.  To buy time our kitchen sink is currently flowing to our back yard and is presently watering my tomatoes, corn, beans and squash plants....sure hope they are ok with it for a week or two -- hubs is having his subs come by this week to provide estimates -- glad to have a few more days to slowly move out of the storeroom downstairs.

 

Will be glad to have laundry and dishwasher back as soon as possible....but quite happy to not be breaking concrete this weekend -- off to kayak for the second morning in a row with my best bud that has returned home after cruising on their sailboat for nearly two years....lol hanging at the yacht club in the morning only to return to my poor old house -- maybe I'll just stay aboard her boat until the plumbing is magically completed.

 

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone :)

So while the laundry water to veggie garden idea still remains viable -- sending carnitas flavored water to the back - back yard was not such a good one -- the dog has dug up my tomato plants and the cat was playing in my "three sister" sprouts -- Doh!

 

Plumbing remains on hold -- looks like estimated start of project will be last week of the month...so long first attempt at veggie garden :(

I just throw them together but they basically have lentils, grated carrot, grated zucchini, chopped onion, oil and flour.  Last night I chopped up some baby squash with it as well.

Son fine tuning his crock pot chili today -- so I think I'll whip up some cornbread muffins to go with that this evening.

 

Just saw this photo and found it kinda interesting - mostly because one of my fifth digits is shorter -- Braly's Sign was first described in 1953 by an English Gastroenterologist, Dr James Braly. The majority of Celiac patients have a short 5th finger and this is Braly's Sign. (J Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition 2000; volume 31 (Suppl.3):S29. NEJM, August 18, 1999)

Someone on here sent me that article a while ago and my hands look like that too, but no one else I know has a shorter baby finger..  (but I have tiny toes too. the second one it small, unlike other people whose second toe is longer) I just thought I was weird.

Oh, that sounds like heaven in the mouth!!

 

We're having Greek salad in a wrap

(because I have so much chicken and feta cheese and grilled veggies to use up)

with a side of fresh corn

(and because it is a bazillion degrees outside and I ain't cooking!) :D

 

Going out to do some pool exercises and get all hot and stuff. .

Yes, everyone's pinkies are shorter than the other fingers,  but if you look at the picture, see how they come up halfway of the middle segment.?

I guess most people's (the ones I have examined anyway--lol)  come up to the first segment.

 

Now, I am probably going to start staring at people's fingers and getting asked "what the hell are YOU looking at?"  :lol:

I'm making chicken tacos with some of the gluten-free taco sauce I picked up at Sprouts Farmers Market Saturday.  I've only had my Celiac diagnosis for a week, so I'm still working out the gluten-free cooking and such.  I love cooking, though, so I don't think it will be too hard.  I've got some gluten-free brown rice tortillas, and I'll try the taco meat in a burrito style.

 

I think I'll be coming here frequently to get some gluten-free recipe ideas.

I think tonight I am baking some sort of chicken something or other. Maybe some garlic taters to go with it or some such. And I'm sure I can dig up a real vegetable somewhere. With this damned iron pills eating has become an exercise in forcing food into myself. I'd honestly be just as happy starving right now. <_<

Hi debrabenge

Welcome to the site :)

There is usually something tasty going on here. We look forward to seeing your new ideas too, I am sure you will soon be in the swing of it

Just had salmon, shiitake mushrooms, ginger, garlic, cilantro, rice noodles. Mmm

Mr M is now researching finger length. I have fingers like the ones in the pictures, and tiny toes too.

Welcome, Debra! Several of us adore cooking. It really helps to be an intuitive cook with a celiac diagnosis! We look forward to your input here.

    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
