ohhhhh, I'll have to get some!!

 

I had french fries for dinner---simple foods :D.  My stomach is still funky feeling.  I'm wondering if it's my multi-vitamin??  It says gluten-free but I wonder if it's just the vitamins' itself.  Who knows.

I can't do the pill for of calcium or multi. I have to do the stupid gummies. For some reason, they sit in my stomach better. And I have to make sure they don't have any of those sugar alcohols, too.

WHO SAID BACON?!!!! I Could tell Karen, it made me actually log on here... haha!!  I want bacon now!!!

 

Been very busy with work, juggling health conditions, nightmare commute... but 2 out of 7 weeks knocked out, I can make it!!!  Very tiring, but after all that is done I will be working from home so I shall trudge through.  This weekend we are going to make fried chicken and fried pickles... every couple of months we will break out the fryer and have a heyday since I can't get fried pickles anywhere and they are the best thing you can put in your mouth.  Ate a lot of grilled chicken and grilled chicken salads this week since it is so easy and quick.  I think I made burgers one night and accidentally left my bun in the toaster too long so I just had the patty, ha.  When I got home tonight me and the hubs made chicken and biscuit dumplings with gluten-free bisquik.

Oh, and I tried to get myself a dinner out on Thursday.  There is a gluten-free bakery near my work and I asked them where good lunch places were around there.  They said the sub shop across the street can do stuff Celiac safe.  I went there after work before sitting in two hours of traffic so I wouldn't starve.  Dunno who the heck served them but I must have gotten the wrong employee.  Guy is acting like a tool, doesn't know what is gluten-free and what isn't, then uses the line, "I mean, it's turkey, why the hell wouldn't it be gluten-free?"  So I bailed.  Then I sat in my car and made sure my one star review on find me gluten free warning Celiacs to stay away had gone through before I drove off.  LOL.  There was no where else to eat other than Wendys and I associate that with terrible road trips so I prefer not to eat there if I am not starving to death, so I drove home hungry :(

I just looked up the restaurants for leg 1 of my trip...not even a McDonald's in town??  They have Walmart so I guess I'll have to eat Walmart food....

 

I did a search for gluten-free resturants, one popped up, a pizza place.  They do have a gluten-free menu, it is 3 pasta dishes and says "let us know an hour in advance if you want gluten-free pasta"...kind of thinking that a small pizza place is going to have CC issues even if they do have gluten-free pasta...

Good thing about having a walmart is if it is a walmart with groceries you should be able to find enough to feed yourself half decently.  Much safer than a fast food place with no gluten-free menu.  If it is not a super walmart and just a regular, you still should be able to find enough snacky type items to fill your belly.  Or of course, tote your own.  If you can find the phone number to that pizza place, give them a call and ask them how they prepare the gluten-free stuff.  Asking for one hour notice for pasta makes me think that they may be putting a fresh pot of water on to boil, etc, which gives a good feeling but of course still need to check.  When you call just be super sweet and nice and make sure they know you are their only option in town, they may go out of their way to help you.  I think a hot meal of any form can be nice even if you can't really pick.

 

Last night we made Chebe pizza on a whim.  I used no cheese in the crust like Karen recommended, and I prefer it that way now.  Nothing better than having your husband knead the dough for you.  Hehe.

We did too. ^_^ A chebe pizza with sauteed onions, mushrooms and BACON.

 

P.S. . I only tried the optional cheese in the crust once, I prefer it without. 

 

Tonight will be equally simple. Burgers & fries. Still not very hungry, but the hubs has rebounded

and he's a hungry dude now. lol   He can make burgers on the grill for us. He grabbed some Udi rolls

and I can handle the extras. Maybe toss a salad. 

 

I hope I feel 100% better soon.  Sick is not much fun.  :( waaa. 

 

YO ADDY: A friend has suggested I tell you about selling your homemade goodies on Etsy. I don't know much about it, but I am sure you do?

Forgot to report about the stir fry spicy peanut sauce. It turned out really really good!

Tonight - brats on the grill, fruit, cheesy corn & oven fries.

Tomorrow night - PF Chang's!

I have been completely cleaning out and re- organizing my kitchen. With the boys off to college, I have a cabinet that is mostly empty. I moved the gluten baking sheets in there so I can put my gluten-free ones in the rack. Hubs still eats a little gluten - mainly sandwiches or crackers or cereal but he never needs a cookie sheet for frozen pizza or chicken nuggets! But they are there in his gluten cabinet if he needs them.

And it was a beautiful pizza indeed!

Thanks to Karen's heads up...all the men and I all had a couple slices of bacon for breakfast...we were all up and out at different times, but a special day for bacon is a special day indeed.

Hubs just got home from riding around the county and is now making a BLT.

Dinner will be steak with bacon topped something or other.

Can someone pull out the Bacon Day official rules...I think if national bacon day falls on a holiday weekend it automatically becomes Bacon Weekend!

I've got bacon for our burgers too ;)  and...bacon for brunch tomorrow...I say why not!  ^_^

 

Of course it can be "bacon weekend"..!! We make our own rules here. Much like our birthdays...we can't celebrate something so important on just one day!

I keep almost setting up an Etsy shop. Especially now that I'm crocheting My Little Pony hats. ^_^ But shipping for the heating pads is outrageous so I keep talking myself back out of it but I need to buckle down and just do it in the next two weeks while I have a weekend "off" this coming weekend if I can find time. I SOLD OUT of long heating pads today!!! So I need to sew sew sew. I need to make food like beef jerky, granola and bread for sandwiches for comic con, plus 3 straight days of early morning to hit the train and not getting back on the train til after 10 at night is gonna kill me so I'll be sleeping that off for a few days. And I'm waiting to hear back from a buyer from a local 3 store "chain" of hippie stores for a possible order. I don't know where I'm going to find the stamina or time but I need to from somewhere. I'm seriously rethinking this whole coffee ban thing. Seriously. <_< The rule is stupid anyway imo.

 

Anywho... BACON!!! Supper is eggs, bacon and I plan on making english muffins so we'll see how that works out. It wouldn't be right not to have bacon tonight. :D

Have you thought about selling the heating pads with a zipper?  Then shipping them empty and they can fill with rice or whatever?  Not sure if that would work.  Do you make ones for ice?  We have these ones with a sealed bag of water in them.  You freeze the water and put it in the cloth things.  Its held in by velcro.  And has straps with velcro to hold it in place.

Zippers and velcro would melt in the microwave. Or... metal zippers BZZZZTTTT!!!!! Bwahahaha. I've had to walk away from some super adorable flannels because of glitter. :( But the buckwheat in the pads works just as well as an ice pack as they do for a heating pad. Just keep them in the freezer and microwave them if you want a heating pad! Or I tell people to buy two. :lol: But my signature "thing" is the buckwheat because of how much better it is than other crappy things they can be filled with. It stays toasty longer. I think though I'm just going to have to go with the flat rate shipping and be like dude, it's $12.35... for up to 7 so buy LOTS! B) (I may be a little evil deep down inside, I don't think I hide it particularly well though.)

 

I better go get my butt to the kitchen if I'm gonna have those english muffins ready in time for supper! And I have like 9 pounds of red and black grapes to wash and freeze. Maybe a bit more than I needed to buy? :ph34r:

I was thinking plastic zippers - but maybe they would melt. Velcro for cold bags.

I think those crocheted hats would sell well on etsy.

Wow! English muffins are surprisingly easy to make. Now for the hardest part of making them. Waiting for them to rise. Very hard for someone with the patience of a toddler.

 

Is it time yet?

Aren't these the most beautiful thing in the world? Maybe not having an english muffin in 3 years has simply made me crazy, but the 20 minute wait to pop one open after taking them out of the oven is KILLING ME!

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
