What's For Breakfast Today?

Add some peanut butter to the rice cake. I'm eating one right now. That will give you approx. 8 grams of protein.

Thanks for the idea, but I'm allergic to peanuts and a few other nuts. I've been wanting to try sunbutter, but not sure if I'll react to it. Does anyone who has to be nut free eat sunbutter alright? I've been thinking of trying yogurt. I was dairy free, but now seem to handle hard cheese.

Carolina, I didn't know you had problems with nuts. How about getting some steak & cook it all up on say Sat. then cut it up into portions & freeze individually wrapped portions. Take one out in the am & nuke it & just eat it. Throw in a rice cake & some yogurt & you ought to be good to go.

Breakfast this week will be CHEESECAKE. Yeah, I know, but the rest of my meals will be salad and vegetable lasagna. Besides, cream cheese has protein, right?

I had my usual Cinnabun on a Spoon, made with my brown rice cereal. I eat this 5 out of 7 mornings a week, and never tire of it (really, who gets tired of Cinnabuns??). I just posted a long post in the recipe forum, with instructions to make your own hot, brown rice cereal, followed with how to make Cinnabun on a Spoon with it.

I'm back out in the country house/dogsitting so this morning was simple. Rather than use the toaster here I sort of grilled my bread in my own pan and simply had it with some lovely apple jelly. And something unusual for me - a tiny bit of dark chocolate. Generally chocolate does not appeal to me but this morning it did. My morning snack will be an unsweetened fruit cup and fresh strawberries.

I toasted two slices of Udi's bread, topped them with fried eggs, and ate with a side of (leftover) Indian-style, stir-fried cabbage. Also, had a cup of herbal tea.

I decided to test coconut flour, and made some pancakes using the recipe from: http://www.tiana-coc...our_recipes.htm and they were nice and fluffy, and pretty yummy! I only got 5 pancakes out of it, rather than the 8 they noted on the recipe, I was hoping for a couple left over, but alas I scarfed them all down. :D

If the test goes o.k. (so far so good, a couple of hours later...), I think the flour will be a nice addition to my bread recipe when I use sorghum flour, which tends to be really dry.

Yum! I, too, am smitten with coconut flour and use it for pancakes, cakes, brownies, cookies and bread.

    • 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".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
