I'm up for Meatza :)

 

We were discussing this at home only yesterday. We were thinking what the best bases for pizza are, tortilla, french bread, and we remebered the time that we had decided to have pizza without checking what was in the house, and ended up using large lamb steaks as the base.

 

Definitely some caveman stuff going on here.

 

At least you guys aren't in the UK. We have reduced price dental care, but our teeth are awful!!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

The American comedians often rag on the state of teeth in the UK, which I find unfunny.  

Do you think perhaps there is more widespread unDXed coeliac (see what I did there :)   ) by any chance? I mean, why would one population have such a hard time with their teeth? I'm just speculating here.

 

Interestingly enough, I read THIS article about celiac disease's toll on our teeth just yesterday.

 

http://allergiclivin...-on-your-teeth/

 

 

You know me, I like to read the current research. Do we think this is something perhaps the PEOPLE IN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION SHOULD BE DOING?? ARGH.  

Ok, calm down....it's waaaay too early to be shouting. Knock that off!!!!.....Breathe in/ breathe out/namaste.

 

ADDY

thanks for the offer of chocolate ice cream, but I CAN'T HAVE CHOCOLATE because of this stupid histamine intolerance that has occured because of my damaged celiac gut. ARGH

 

ohmygosh, I'm SHOUTING again. What is wrong with me? 

 

I think the past few days have spurred some ANGER inside me, so I think I'm just going to go to the gym and grunt on the treadmill and weight machines. Then, I'm off to the PT and the MT. My body should be very pleased with me by 5 PM :D

 

Dinner tonight will be whatever my friend Sherry Lynn has for soup special at her G F cafe. Mama don't cook on gym and PT day.

 

YO LOVE2  !!  

the daffodils are opening, hon! whoohooooo!! and you are the only one in this chat gang who can say "scattered with baby arugula and sprinkled with toasted pine nuts" and get away with it without sounding like a pretentious asshat.

 

You're so adorable and I hope that snow skeedaddles soon.. 

 

HAVE A GOOD DAY, EVERYONE!!!! (omygawd, you're doing it again.....no I'm not, those caps were for emphasis and enthusiasm, not shouting. Well, some might interpret it that way...geesh!.....)  and that's what it sounds like inside my head.

OK, not got quoting yet, but working on it...

 

Unfunny maybe, but true!!

I think it is a money thing - for example I had braces on my teeth as a teenager, but they only did the top ones, and my bottom teeth are very crooked and cramped - from what I gather, the policy was only to do top teeth, mostly because of cost. You get what you pay for. We get dental work on the NHS (if you can find a dentist to do it...) and get charged in different bands, according to how much work we get done. Since this approach came in, I have noticed a lot less dental work being done than when we paid for each thing individually. Well, that's my theory anyway.

 

And I think because we all (well, lots) have bad teeth, we thnk it is normal. I am jealous of my American friends shiny straight teeth.

 

And CHILL IF YOU CAN :ph34r:

I would be shouting too if I couldn't have chocolate. Or possibly crying in the car on the way home from the neurologist. I think that afternoon was worse than the celiac thing, because it was just more crap piled on, I am so glad that chocolate doesn't bother me or I'd possibly be in the loony bin by now.

I survived the dentist intact. I swear if it weren't for the gas I would probably have a panic attack when he sticks that needle in me. I don't know why they bother with that stupid crap on a stick to make it hurt less, doesn't do a thing to stop it from hurting so bad I could punch him in the face and not feel bad. Or maybe that is the gas talking. :lol:

 

I made my mac & cheese. I have some anaheim (I think? I don't know, they're green and long) peppers laying around so I cut one up and fried it up a little and added it. Now it is mildly spicy mac & cheese!

Mushroom Risotto (dried chanterelles, porcini, wood mushrooms that were reconstituted with Sherry) with mushroom powder (I also pulverized dried porcinis in my spice grinder to make it extra mushroom-y) PLUS used mushroom stock

Juniper, Bay and Vanilla Poached Shrimp over Beet Coulis (with lemon juice, horseradish, etc.), scattered with baby arugula and sprinkled with toasted pine nuts

Steamed broccoli

 

That's about it.  ^_^

I'm not gluten intolerant, but my wife is. I joined this blog because I do all the cooking at home and need to be educated so I don't hurt my family.
I'm always looking for recipe ideas and ways to cook and eat healthy. And while I'm not on a tight budget, I have been finding gluten free grocery shopping quite expensive, so all ideas are welcome!

I don't even try to compete! :). I feel some of us should represent the " real" people! So:

chili in the crockpot &/ chili Mac with corn pasta for those who like chili that way. This time it's lean hamburger with black beans & pinto beans.

I miss chili so much! That sounds amazing. I really hope to be able to have beans again eventually, I find that to be one of the most limiting things of my diet.

Great long-long day...wanted a few extra credit points to lock my grade so saw a film about water management -- cars were shuffled a bit incorrectly today so I walked home -- thankful I could at 530 in the evening, but asses were chewed a bit for no one fetching me before the second major hill between - here and there.  

 

Needless to say...didn't feel like cooking -- did throw the leftover pork from enchilada day in a pot with left over chicken breasts...hubby took over and made tacos for men and a big pot of asparagus for me.

 

They are still working on pineapple upside down a la mode and I am ready for bed.  Nightie-night all :)

Speakin of Pizza bases, have any of you tried cauliflower? I discovered it when I went on a low carb diet... it's riced cauliflower, egg and mozzarella cheese rolled into a ball first and then pressed flat and baked until crispy. Pizza sauce and toppings are added in the last few minutes of cooking.

 

It tastes good, is healthy and actually looks quite like a real pizza. My 4 yr old was suspicious though when he pick up a slice and it gave a little. :-)

I've used cauliflower -- for pizza crust -- to add some substance to my paleo apple bread and to make "rice" and most often cauli-fried rice!!!

 

A few years ago I bough cauliflower once in a blue moon -- now there are a couple heads in my basket each week - great stuff - just not a fan of it plain.

I have a beautiferous hunk of cow at home in the crock pot. I am hoping he comes out tender and juicy so I can eat him, as my mouth is so messed up that I may end up on a liquid or super soft foods diet for a few weeks. Flaming pissed doesn't begin to describe how I feel about my results from yesterday's appointment. When none of the pain was resolving by bedtime, and some was getting worse, I decided to actually look in my mouth. I have over half a dozen canker sores and a gorgeous 1/4 inch bruise from the abuse of the dentist yesterday.

 

I am really hoping to retain more in my diet than smoothies, ice cream and mac & cheese for the next two weeks.Lets face it though, this is me we are talking about. Other than whining about wanting meat, no one will hear me complain about too much mac & cheese until I stop pooping. :lol:

Hubs made his Famous Cheeseburgers In Paradise for din din. 

 

They are famous because he is the official Grill Master at the family's annual 4th of July Party-Rama.  Dad was forced to give up the title when a burger flip went wrong, flames licking up the side of the guest house and water hoses were involved.  Needless to say, Dad is not allowed around the grill and not allowed to touch the smuggled in fireworks. 

 

They are in Paradise because me and hubs always eat them together :)

We had beans and greens soup and veggie rolls ups for dinner tonight and I am coming out of my sad coma.

I do not want to get into a "political" discussion at all, so please, no one start with me...but the President did a wonderful job today in Boston.

I am grateful.
