How do you prepare the sunshine burger? I've never tried them but they sound good.

Our dinner is in the crockpot: lamb shanks/potatoes/carrots/celery/carmelized onions cooking with merlot & chicken stock. Will add chunks of sweet potato later (so they don't melt).

I'm honestly surprised I don't weigh 300 lb because we eat like this about six days of the week. Often seven. But I try to keep our diet balanced (not always).

Man, sorry you can't have chorizo. I love the stuff. Oops - I meant that chorizo sucks. Dull. Boring. Predictable. :P

I have three 9 year old boys in my house. We are eating whatever I find in the freezer since I can't get rid of the two that aren't mine. Hubs is on the golf course in 100 degree heat so there's no relief (or trip to the store) in sight.

I just fed them the last of the retried beans and corn tortillas. They'll be chewing on my ankle next.

I've got to get a new plan for boys that are rapidly getting bigger than me.

Sounds divine! I am making my own butter too, cultured. I just started a few months ago. I'd love if you shared your method. And last night I made my first batch of yogurt.

We're having salad with homemade blue cheese dressing and my minestrone soup.

I'm a big fan of braising too. The least expensive cuts of meat are often the most favorable. Braising would make even shoe leather tender.

I made my family's favorite meatloaf gluten free for the first time (I am newly diagnosed) and it was just as good as original. I used a mix of ground beef and turkey, crushed gluten-free tortilla chips, some gluten-free bread crumbs, chili powder and a little salt and topped it with BBQ sauce. I am enjoying reading this thread... So many ideas!

Good for you! You will find that so many things are very easy to make gluten free. Most mains, in fact, are naturally gluten free anyway. Just because we have celiac it does not mean we have to be restricted to blah foods. We can enjoy fantastic foods (except for those who have so many other restrictions which is so sad).

Yes - I just love turning inexpensive cuts into something divine! Definitely the best (and only) way for many cuts, that is for certain.

I rarely eat processed foods and I like them. They are the only vegan "burger" that I have found ( in my area) that is gluten and soy free.

The garden herb I eat plain with a side of veggies.

The southwestern I basically make a taco salad out of them.

How about while we are on vacation soon? Then when we get back you will be settled nicely and can have a lovely meal waiting for us. :)

Cleaning out the fridge in preparation for vacation:

Thai Curry Shrimp (using up some lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, shrimp paste, etc.) with lots of extra sauce for mung bean noodles. I love making curry pastes - the house smells so incredibly aromatic!

Unsure of the sides at this point.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
