I made sublime chipotle and cascabel orange carnitas with corn tortillas. I have a thing for pork! Alas...tummy troubles prevented me from enjoying them tonight but at least my husband did...perhaps tomorrow.

Grilled indian spiced minced lamb kabobs with saffron rice and lettuce tonight. There is no egg or binder in the recipe I used, so they didn't end up being kabobs (slid right off the stick and ended up being burgers or logs).

Last night: Vietnamese shrimp with rice noodles, shredded carrots and lettuce with two dressings (both Vietnamese).

We're traveling the world without all the airfare and hassle, it's all good.

where do you find saffron at? I've never been able to find it (but then again, I've only ever looked in the spice section of regular grocery stores). Someone gave me some once, so I know what it looks like, and I know I liked it when I used it. :)

Badia spices are available where I live. They usually have a separate section in the supermarket, sometimes in the Latin section, sometimes in the spice section. I paid about $5.00 for a little plastic snap shut container that has lasted over a year. I think Badia usually has their display arranged alphabetically.

Admittedly it was awesome. As a perfectionist, I am very critical of my own cooking and am often not quite satisfied. However, this was pretty darned good.

So, who hires the lawyer - you or I?? :lol:

Good job! You can make extra rice an freeze it in a baggie with your name on it. Then pop it out when you need some. I have found it stays good in the freezer for 3 months. Sometimes I cook little bits of carrot with the rice for a little added nutrition.

I don't know if you have these stores where you live, but in IL we have what's called Fresh Pick Market stores. They are a grocery store, but have mainly fruit and veggies and not much "shelf" foods. As a result they have a lot of ethic foods in the line of spices and stuff. Just an idea...hope you find it!

Ensure it is not safflower you are getting - it looks similar to saffron but is a very poor imitation (i.e. it would definitely turn a person off if s/he thought it was saffron). The good saffron from Iran and Spain is very expensive (about $40-$50 for about 1 tbsp) but as mentioned the grocery store stuff is cheaper (but sufficient and sort of similar to the real thing!). Great in Risotto Milanese and paella! :)

To get the most flavour from your saffron make sure to steep it in some hot or warm liquid rather than just throwing it into a dish. The threads are from a specific species of crocus that only blooms a short time each year and are hand picked (each crocus only has a few) - that is why the authentic thing is so darned expensive.

Good luck finding some - I hope you do!

Thanks for the tip!!! I have a rice steamer that cooks my rice in the microwave in 6 minutes to perfection but I will keep that in mind for trips bc as sad as it is I can't take all my cooking goodies with me

We had left-over home-made chili. We just introduced white beans and tomatoes after about 6 months with no nightshades or legumes, so it has been pretty exciting! :)

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
