I'm cooking meatloaf. I posted a recipe, but waiting for moderator approval. Is quite good.

Way too hot to cook here and

I was trying to decide what to have for dinner when I saw your thread. Thanks for the idea,, I had some leftover meatloaf in the freezer that I pulled out for dinner :)

Me too, but it makes me sick if I eat it solo. Usually I have peanut butter or cheese at the same time.

I'd really be trying to raid your recipes if I didn't have so many other food intolerances/allergies.

We're having grilled fish again tonight. I marinated it in pineapple juice, fish sauce and pepper. That's with salad and sweet potatos for me, roasted white taters for him. Got to go eat now...

We're trying to use up everything in the fridge so tonight I had chicken marinaded in Asian chili sauce and cucumbers with roasted red pepper hummus. Hubby had leftover bison taco meat, carmelized onions and bell peppers in a bowl over rice with a broken up tortilla. I cooked up the rest of my boneless skinless chicken breasts in three ways--lemon pepper chicken, rotisserie and in the Asian chili sauce. Now I have enough cooked food to last us until Friday and I can pack all the pots and pans and even all my spices up for the move.

Tonight for dinner we had grilled sirloin burgers. I sauteed some sliced onions and portabella mushrooms in olive oil with s&p to top the burgers. We had roasted potatoes too. When we sat down to dinner, I asked my non gluten-free sig other if he'd like some bread. He said "yes!". I said "Too bad!" and cracked up laughing and you know how it goes, when one of you starts laughing the other one does too. We laughed and laughed. "It's better that a wish burger, where you WISH you had some meat!" (Wonder what the Blues Brother would have sang about gluten-free?)

Then he said, "You know, I've had to become better at grilling with this diet of yours. I used to be able to slap a slice of cheese on a burger, or drown it in bbq sauce if I cooked it too long. We'd stick it on buns and you'd never know." "Now that you want things cooked naked, I really have to pay attention."

So tonight we got into naked cooking without buns. It was all good. And I'm finally getting my sense of humor back. Yay!

Plain boiled white rice for me, some lovely homemade vichyssoise soup I made the other day for my husband. I have been quite ill lately so am keeping it bland and simple until whatever this is passes.

Add a little home made chicken broth to that. It adds a tad bit more to flavor and you know what they say about chicken soup, maybe that will do the same?

I normally do that when i'm not feeling well.

Not cooking tonight. Eating at Maggiano's Italian restaurant and ordering off their gluten free menu to celebrate my HQ credentias being restored to me for passing the NTE years ago. YEH!

I am so freaking excited to start cooking dinner tonight!

Butter chicken

Jasmine Rice

Aloo Gobi (Cauliflower and potato curry) with the cauliflower and potatoes from my own garden!

Pakoras with tamarind and mango chutneys

All homemade! I love cooking Indian food but only find the time once a month or so. I've never made pakoras before but I bought a deep fryer so I can have all my favourite deep fried foods at home where I'm safe.

Tonight's dinner was not very exciting. We had some frozen stuffed baked potatoes. They were really lacking in flavor! Also some bacon that needs to be used up and salad. The salad was the best part. That's kind of sad.

Thanks! I've had a somewhat rough two weeks - severe D, vomiting, cramps, pain. Surprisingly enough I have not lost a single pound. My pain threshhold is high but I am not liking this. ER doctor questioned me about travels. However, with celiac disease, I have no idea whether this is my first glutening or what? I have not eaten out for ages and our home is strictly gluten-free. Perhaps it is a sign of another intolerance but I have no clue what because I get ill no matter what I eat. We had fab food last night because I was feeling better but am ill again now. Just cannot link this with anything I am eating at all. I am seeing my GP Wednesday.

    • Research Celiac Ataxia for potential diagnosis. Look at Milk and dairy for potential head and sinus related issues.  I stopped dairy and I can breathe now! Saturated fat may also be a problem, but it's mostly dairy!
    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • I'm 43 years old. I'm married and have two teen daughters. After all these years it was one of my daughters who tonight said to me: "you probably have Celiac disease" after hearing my wife and I talking about all the pimples I always get on my arms. I never heard of the disease but I have heard about a lot of people having gluten allergies and didn't know they were the same thing. So I started looking it up on the internet. Turns out I have had all the symptoms all my life and no one has ever said anything about it possibly being Celiac disease. When I was a kid my doctor gave me prescriptions to antibacterial soaps to use for the arm pimples. Hibitane I think was one of them. And I've always had swollen looking ankles as long as I can remember. All my life people have noticed it. As a kid and teen I played lot's of sports and have broken my ankles and sprained them so my mom and I brushed it off at that and so did my family doctor when I was young.  But I always thought it was weird that the swelling continued all these years.  I have had a bloated feeling stomach all my life too and chronic diarrhea. My stomach is always hard and swollen feeling. Not ever knowing what that stuff was related too so I have never mentioned the bloat or diarrhea to a doctor. Just kind of embarrassing I guess. As my wife and I were reading about Celiac Disease on the internet together tonight she pointed out to me that that's probably why these symptoms almost all went away when I did a very low carb diet for about a year straight to lose weight a couple years ago. I had solid bowel movements, no bloat, ankle swelling went down but I thought the improvements were from weight loss and just eating healthier . But perhaps in reality it probably had a lot more to do with not eating all the wheat products/gluten products. So tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor to talk to him about it and to ask for the blood tests. I have read that I should continue eating gluten though until my testing is done. So that is crappy but I guess it's better to know for sure. Something else I think I should point out too is that I get headaches quite a bit after having big meals. Now I am thinking that may have something to do with the gluten too. I have read that some people with Celiac also get headaches with the other symptoms. It's great to see there is a forum like this to help people out with these issues. If I test positive for Celiac I will for sure be following this forum closely for advice and diet/nutrition help.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:
