Tonight I made Tandoori Chicken with roasted curry cauliflower.  Was pretty good.  Now my house will smell like curry for a few days and when I walk inside after being out I will get hungry, lol.

Well, it is the second day of rain sprinkles here in California.   It finally feels like Fall even though I am still wearing shorts and flip flops!B)  I am happy not to be running the air conditioner.   Alas, it will not last. :angry: Temperatures to hit 100 degrees by the weekend. 

I am making chili and salad for tonight's dinner to celebrate the rain and the hint of cool weather!

Chicken wings with Turmeric turned out great. It is super easy to make and super delicious and healthy (I think, depending on how many wings you eat :D). I wanted to try something I have not made before but I did not want to spend much time preparing it. So, I took some chicken wings, put some olive oil, turmeric, and salt and mixed it all and baked it in the oven. I did flip them when I saw that they got nice and crunchy on top, so I wanted to make sure it was like that on both sides.

I grilled chicken wings for lunch today too and served it with a nice green salad.  

The rest of the day was devoted to my FIL's birthday party.  Served Tri-Tip and sausages, baked beans, green salad, jello, and potato salad.  Then best was the lemon pound cake, pumpkin raisin cupcakes, and cheesecake.  No one could tell that they were gluten-free!  I am tired from all that cooking and baking!

Hi Cycling lady, everything sounds absolutely delicious. You should open a bakery! It is impressive how many desserts you had made. I used to bake a lot prior to diagnosis, so I have to get back to it.  I got popsicle molds so I look forward to making some :D.

I have been snacking on cheese imported from England (fancy!) that contains cranberries. Yum!  Beats eating peanut butter off the spoon!  :P  I have never had Chestnuts, but they sound good.

They also make that cheese with blueberries!  Sooooooo yummy.  But hard to find.  Must be a very limited supply as our store is always trying to get it and it's often unavailable.

 

 

tonight we are grilling some steaks and veggie kabobs ( red onion, red pepper, potatoes and pineapple marinated in teriyaki and some of the pineapple juice)

Blueberries in cheese?  I'm going to look for it in our stores (West Coast).  

Tonight is Tri-Tip steak (West Coast cut) with mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus.  Too tired to pull a salad together.  We had an all-day marching band tournament.

Kareng, that sounds absolutely delicious. How do you make coconut rice? 

I roasted lamb chops and cooked white rice. These days I crave red meat. :D

I used this recipe.  I used frozen peas instead of canned.  I used jalapenos for the marinade and salsa and it wasn't hot.  But a great flavor.

The rice is sort of mushy.  its delicious, that's just how it is supposed to be.  It would be good with fruit in it - canned crushed pineapple or raisins and be breakfast.

    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much!
