stuffed french toast! and this is the second time this week i made it and it turned out not mushy and gushy. i used rudi's original (from the freezer into the toaster oven on 300 degrees for 10 min to thaw it and dry it out a little. then dunk it into the egg mixture just for a second (my first few attempts i left the bread soaking too long - like i used to do with glutenous bread - and it disintegrated lolz) i fried them in butter on both sides then just put plain cream cheese and some blackberry jam in between them, egged them again and fried them again. this would be good for a brunch. love playing with my food haha :D

oh, and i had some ham, too :)

My youngest was asking for dark chocolate chips in her rice chex for a special breakfast so the girls had that and I put them in my Yoplait cherry orchard yogurt. It was a nice treat.

We had fried potatoes (leftovers from slow cooked corn beef), a fried over easy egg, and chili. It was scrumptious!

I had some of the Kinnikinnik brown bread with lots of butter and strawberry jam, wow, this was a good combo! The strawberry complimented this particular bread nicely.

However, this might be the last of that bread for me a while though, since I think I'm reacting to beans and peas now and I maybe can't have the pea protein in this bread. Still testing to see if I react to it. Well, that's life for us, isn't it! :rolleyes:

I had prickypear1971's gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free hot chocolate!

Not for everyday (too rich) but a great treat. I drank it with two slices of gluten-free toast with almond butter. I'll have fruit later in the morning.

Sounds yummy Lucia! Toast is still my favorite thing for breakfast, even gluten-free. :)

Nothing too exciting for breakfast today...banana with cinnamon and a sweet potato.

Is there a way for me to 'like' this? :D I am no fan of traditional cereal/toast type breakfasts. I eat them because I need to eat something, and nutrition is required but my D'ruthers would be cold pizza or tacos. However,your breakfast today sounds wonderful!

gluten-free oatmeal with apples and walnuts and a small glass of 1 percent milk. I just closed my eyes and pretended it was cold pizza! :lol: Didn't work, but then again, I didn't suffer the pangs of guilt either...."No Pang, no dang' when I look at the numbers on the scale this way.

-gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free hot chocolate (per prickpear1971's recipe, which was leftover from the other day I made it)

&

-roasted yukon potato halves used to scoop up cardamon vanilla applesauce (all leftovers, of course)

Funny - I never ever would have come up with a breakfast like this before being forced to go gluten-free. Actually, I ate the same thing everyday (green tea, plain yogurt with granola/muesli, fruit on a good day, and peanut butter toast - everyday!). So boring ...

Yes I've been having some pretty "creative" breakfasts too...I used to eat the same thing every day too...toast, every day! I could still eat toast every day, BUT, now it is too expensive to eat every day...also for some reason I don't want to be in a rut any more. I like eating different things for breakfast, and I didn't before. Wierd.

This morning I made a triple berry slushie...frozen blueberries and strawberries with some cranberry juice. My daughter has a sore throat and wanted something soothing.

I had banana muffins made with coconut flour using the recipe Skylark posted above:

http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com/recipe_Coconutty_Cinnamon_Banana_Bread.htm

They were the easiest gluten-free goods I've made! I'm definitely going to make more pastries with coconut flour. The taste was delicious. Next time I'll use cardamon instead of cinnamon and see how that goes.

A fried egg (laid only minutes earlier by one of our backyard chickens) with cheese, sour cream and salsa on a corn tortilla. Yummy in my tummy.

I wish like heck I could eat what you guys do for breakfast & be able to go till lunch time before getting weak & shaky. Here's say a typical breakfast for me:

cup of coffee then:

large serving of hash browns with a sausage patty crumbled in plus an egg white a glass of juice & a 1/2 glass of milk.

Within 1 to 1 1/2 hrs. I will be starving & shaky.

I've been reading through these posts to get breakfast ideas but I would wither away if I only ate the tiny amount so many of you do. I'm getting desperate. Do you have any suggestions?

Believe me - I do not eat tiny amounts! Sometimes I have Eggs Benedict and fruit; other times smoothies; other times leftovers from dinner. I could easily eat what you do and more. I also have a mid morning snack of lactose-free yogurt or raw fruit and/or a handful of raw nuts. Without a snack I would be famished. Morning is my hungriest time of the day - perhaps it is the same for you.

Have you considered a dietitian? Mine is superb. Being accountable is important to me.

I'd suspect that shaky feeling is due to too many carbs (carbohydrates), at least it is for me. Are you doing egg white due to iodine in the yolk? Thankfully I'm back to whole eggs and my DH is fine unless I do something stupid like drink tea that I realized after 2 weeks was glutening me. (Hytop brand)

However, your juice, hashbrowns and probably milk are a pretty high-carb combination, and possibly the sausage patty also has dextrose or corn syrup? (i.e. carbs) -- add either more protein or fat (or both?) and cut back on those things that are going to raise your blood sugar.

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
