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.

Gluten Free Cafe frozen thing of chicken and vegetables. I was able to add enough gluten-free soy sauce to make it somewhat edible. Blah!

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!

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
