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!

    • Thank you! I will call and ask for a full panel and see where it leads!!
    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
