I like your kitty Kat, K. (and you think I don't notice). Also like your quote--good one. ;)

 

 

 

 

 

I like that little Kitty,too.

 

Babysat the baby nephew yesterday.  He is about 10 months.  He has 3 dogs at his house.  My cat is fascinating to him.  She was very good with him.  Maybe had a baby in a past house.  She lets him touch her but stands or sits just at the end of his reach.  It sounded like he kept saying "cat".

 

Some of these TV stations weather reporting is nuts.  They interrupt programs to report on bad weather 100+ miles away that isn't coming to the area.  Very annoying.

Well, I tried it with sweet potatoes and they fell apart again! They just don't hold together for me like when I use Russet potatoes. I tossed grated sweet potatoes with melted earth balance butter and salt. Hmmm.....Maybe time to google to see what I did wrong.

I like to sub in sweet potatoes for regular potatoes in things, and I find that the key to having them stay intact is to get the outsides crisped up before the inside is cooked... then you still have something for the cooked moosh to kind of hold on to.  So I will roast them in the oven and make sure to get that crisp on the outside real good... I am not sure what you could do with the waffle iron thing, though.  

 

Tonight I am making spaghetti with meat sauce and broccoli, and some chebe rolls I froze.  Cheezy bread is always a good choice.

I would say add a little egg and a smidge of flour.  But you don't do egg.

 

Has anyone tried the waffle iron using mashed potatoes - sweet or white?  My Irish Grandma used to take leftover mashed potatoes add a bit of egg and flour and fry like a pancake.  We called the Irish latkes.  The recipe book guy did left-over mac and cheese in them.  Let me see if he did anything to the mac and cheese.

Actually I eat eggs, lots of them. :) So egg would be a perfectly good option.

They added egg to make the mac and cheese stick and bread crumbs.   

 

But if you eat eggs - then try some eggs and a spoonful or two of gluten-free flour.   I have used any all-purpose for the Irish latkes or rice flour.

 

I thought you were vegan?  Just a dairy intolerant vegetarian?

No, I'm not vegan. Just a vegetarian who doesn't tolerate dairy well.

 

I love eggs and have resisted any effort from my vegan friends to convince me to give them up. :)

My point exactly. I generally try to be polite and avoid stirring up drama, but when my vegan friends preach about the evils of eggs, I feel very tempted to say, "Try cooking gluten free AND vegan for 6 months and then get back to me on that."  :P

 

I know that being gluten free and vegan is possible, but it's certainly not anything that I feel like taking on.  :ph34r:

Don't think you did anything wrong.

K provided a link that said melt butter on the iron and some other stuff. I went with that and the fact that you said sweet potato didn't work and squeezed as much moisture out of my grated yams as possible. Oh...and turned the heat down to lowest setting as I wanted them to cook, not burn.

We do potato pancakes with left over mashies...going to try it in the waffle iron next weekend.

Ever since coming to Croatia in May, we have sort of fallen from the low-carb lifestyle a bit and I can really feel it.  Strangely, we have not gained any weight but I crave carbs as I used to...when I was doing my best, I had no cravings whatsoever.  And now, the more carbs I have, the more I want.  I really need to stop this cycle.  :huh:  Carbs bloat me.  So, no more potatoes for me or awhile.  But guess what I made?  Pizza!!!  High carb, delicious, unctuous, incredible pizza.  Again.  And a chocolate chestnut torte with a lovely cream cheese frosting (this was actually very low carb, to sort of justify the pizza ;)). 

 

Low carbs.  Tomorrow.  ^_^

My latest gluten free achievement was a chocolate molten lava cake served on a dab of Mrs. Richardson's caramel.  YUM!

My splurge today was a Justin's peanut butter cup from the health food store. Yum!

 

Today was a blur of activity and appointments with my 8 year old daughter's doctor's appointment (got the celiac panel ordered, yay!) and my husband getting his 3 unit bridge done, so I'm going easy for supper. Vegan seafood with tartar sauce. :)

Love it!

That would have been welcomed at California ... Especially the Labor Day race used to be hot as hell...I paid 25 bucks one season for the water truck to fill a kiddy pool...everyone laughed at me until they ended pulling their camp chairs to the edge to dangle their feet in my pool! Made the water too dirty for the toddler racetrack neighbor...but fun for all the other kids :)

My very generous husband shared his bug with me.  <_< Supper got cancelled last night and again tonight. I've been eating soup when I can manage to eat anything and told him he's on his own. Hopefully by Friday night I'll get my orange chicken. That's my plan anyway. Until then it's soup, soup and more soup.

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      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.
