Can't Believe I Did That!

6 posts in this topic

I've been gluten-free for under a month and I've been doing pretty well. I'm probably not as vigilant about CC as I should be, but I'm getting there. The longer I'm gluten-free, the more in tune I am with my symtoms. Anyway, I just had to share my dumb girl moment from last night. I've been trying different gluten-free Brownie mixes for a few weeks. My bf is a huge dessert eater so I thought if I could find something we could both eat that would be great! But, unfortunately, they all have a funky aftertaste and he won't eat them. Well, he's been so wonderful about all this with me, that I made him the real ones last night. Washed my hands like crazy, cleaned the counters afterwards. Dumb moment happened when I took them out of the oven and used a toothpick to check that they were done. Inserted toothpick and then out of habit, stuck the darn thing in my mouth! I spit it out instantly and just had to laugh at myself for being so absent minded. It's amazing how something so small could quite possibly cause big problems. I feel ok today thank goodness...hopefully that will continue. Happy Tuesday everyone!

You are not alone. I have done things like that before -- licked my finger after making the kids sandwiches, and such.

There is a really great recipe for brownies on here....I wish I could remember the post. But you message me, I'll send it when I get home (the message will remind me!). It is excellent, and NO ONE will know it's gluten free. It is amazing.

I am certain we all make mistakes like that one. Currently I'm kicking myself for letting someone else do the grocery shopping.

Like everyone else, we've all had a moment like that. Mine was making my family pasta in one pan and gluten-free pasta in another one and out of habit I tossed a noodle in my mouth to see if it was done. Now I tell my family if they want to make sure their pasta is done, they better be in the kitchen with me when I make it. Of course, my oldest daughter wants to toss the noodle to see if it sticks to the ceiling. Thats not going to happen! Always an adventure!

Good Luck! Tammy

Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt....lol.

BTW....Betty crocker has gluten free mixes and they have a brownie mix. I tried the expensive gluten free brownie things and hated the after taste too. I have not tried the BC brownie mix but I have tried the cake mix and the cookie mix and both were very good with no yucky after taste :)

I've done this also. Mine was pasta. Cooked the "real" stuff for my family and just absently put a noodle in my mouth to see if it was done. :blink: -- Another time it was just me and the kids for dinner. Dh was traveling. It was cold and rainy so I said how about grilled cheese and tomato soup. I got out the big pan, the one that fits three grilled cheese at once and started making three! oy... They were already in the pan when it dawned on me that of course I couldn't eat one! sheesh... Thankfully my ds is a teenage boy so he just ate two. :lol: -- And yet another time I was going to eat the last bits of the Kentucky Fried Chicken mac and cheese.

Lol... after awhile it does get easier. :rolleyes:

    • New to this gluten-free life
      Kareng is correct.  There are also a number of good reference books on celiacs and gluten free issues.  Also several magazines.  The main thing is to find out the hidden and unusual sources of gluten, and also to be very careful when eating at restaurants.  I got glutened quite a few times at restaurants before I learned to triple check and began to find safe places.  Good luck. 
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt, Since celiac impacts the whole body...I think kidneys are affected.  I have kidney stones and they are super fun(not) and my urologist says that it's fairly common with celiac and malabsorption.  I don't know specifically about kidney disease, but when I was in the hospital passing my stones...prior to passing, my GFR was around 60.  A few weeks later when my doctor did bloodwork it was 87.  Here is some info that may help.   https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/gfr
    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      Matt

      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,
