Well, the chicken didn't thaw in time so I fried a couple of eggs, mixed them in (with runny yolks) to some rice with some cauliflower and a tiny bit of leftover shredded steak. I'm still hungry. <_<

I don't like using the microwaves at work. Sometimes I break down and use it, but today it was a cold lunch.Today I put in one long container small dark green leaf salad with blueberries and blackberries, sliced baked chicken and rice. I don't mind eating cold rice. All with a natural balsamic dressing.

Black bean and rice stir fry w/ carrots, celery, garlic, whatever was left from breakfast. Nothing empty here as I am a volume eater which is why I prep veggies on Sun, for the week. I have 10 different containers in my fridge with 5 days or so worth of "prep". I make pico de gallo once a week and on Sat I use that left over juice from the salsa and bake a huge pot of beans for the week. My goal is nothing from a can or jar except I am not a fantic, if I need something, like tomatoes, I'll use organic. Pumpkin? How easy is it to bake a pumpkin? I use a LOT of pumpkin, it's cheap if you do it yourself! You can add it to bread, waffles, pancakes, corn bread, you name it, add it! Full of Vit A, good for the eyes.

The one thing I added this year in bulk was flax. You really need flax with a gluten-free diet.

I use my mandoline to slice into fine shoestrings (about 1/4"), drizzle with good olive oil, toss in some fresh rosemary and thyme, sea salt and pepper and roast at high heat (400) for about 25-30 minutes until very crispy. Then I remove from the oven and sprinkle with a finishing salt - am using truffle salt today. I use so many kinds of finishing salt for different things but I think it is so worth having some on hand - it makes a gigantic difference.

Today's lunch will be salad greens with Basalmic Vinagrette dressing and homemade turkey soup. Plus I brought an apple if I'm still hungry. The soup has leftover thanksgiving turkey, wild rice, carrots, celery, and homemade veggie stock. Now that I figured out how super easy it is to make veggie stock, I'm using a ton of it in homemade soups. Nothing better than soup when the weather is cold.

Leftover sweet tacos which is pork n beans mixed with cooked hamburger meat with onions (sauteed with the meat) with a few seasoning like chilli etc and eaten in a corn tortilla. It's actually really yummy and we make a big batch so I can eat leftovers for awhile. I've been eating it since I was a kid and it was awesome to find out it's gluten free, yay!

I just use 1 cup s/r flour (I use white wings) 1 egg, and 1 cup of milk (double it if you want to do a big batch - I sometimes just freeze some in batches) then I add whatever I feel like, sometimes ham, chicken, chorizo, bacon (whatever) a grated carrot, a grated zucchini and some frozen peas, grated cheese. I also mess around with herbs and spices, so today I used smoked paprika and some lemon rind and thyme and garlic. etc

If I want to make sweet piklets I just add a tablespoon of sugar and some shredded coconut mmmm....(it doesn't turn out very sweet - but that is where the maple syrup comes in!) and sometimes - if I'm feeling really decadent - I also add chopped up dried apricot and chopped up chocolate - I swear - I could live my life happily just eating piklets! Haha!

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      It is too bad the doctor didn't advise you to take the blood tests before going gluten free.  There is a chance they could still be positive.....  But a good chance that being gluten-free for weeks will make them negative.   I Have not seen any medical evidence that Celiac disease is caused  by any other disease. It is a genetic auto immune disease.     Perhaps you should read some info from reliable source s like the Univ of Chicago Celiac Center?   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-much-gluten-should-be-consumed-prior-to-being-screened-for-celiac-disease/
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.

      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,
