Still jet lagged so am having a simple lunch.

Grilled tuna sandwich with lots of capers and lemon juice. Used Schar bread I brought back from Croatia. The bread was not terrible. :P

I picked up some Schar rolls for pulled pork sandwiches but was unimpressed. Leftovers today, like most days, pintos and rice with salsa and some chorizo... and tums. I discovered yesterday that chorizo gives me terrible heartburn but I can't just let it go to waste!

I am eating a late lunch because I suspect dinner will be late.

Foraging in the refrigerator for leftovers. So far I have found 2 cooked broccoli florets, a tiny piece of steak, a hard boiled egg, a pre cooked, tiny orphaned hamburger, some leftover bread I made but did not put the date I baked it on :rolleyes: , and some green snap pea pods. The bread had a bit of amaranth, so it is still okay.

I was looking for the leftover cooked fish, but didn't find it until the other stuff was already arranged on the two little saucers.

This is my salad rebellion day, there are only so many days I can go with eating that, before ....... :P

Made potato salad last weekend, I add more "other" vegetables to it, like cucumber or zucchini, so it is less carby, and then serve it over lettuce greens. If I keep extra baked potatoes and hard boiled eggs in the refrigerator, I can make a small batch up pretty quickly.

I agree about Schar's bread. Tried it for the first time this past week. Rudi's multigrain and cinnamon raisin are still my favs :)

The plan was to have a spinach salad with some nuts and feta for lunch. Turns out I added some watermelon for dessert after dropping it on the floor, forcing me to cut it up instead of waiting until Monday. (Don't ever do this, the sticky is everywhere!)

PB&J on yesterday's leftover pancakes. I was skeptical about it when I was making it but it's pretty darn good. I have a new jar of strawberry smoothie jam I picked up at a carnival Saturday night. (No worries, the lady who made it has a 5 yo celiac son.) Also some pistachio fluff. I just throw together a pack of pudding, some cool whip and some marshmallows and a can of fruit. Whatever flavors strike me as a good idea at the time. This does not always result in a success. :lol:

YUCK! Sorry - I do not mean your lunch but your weather. We are at a perfect 15C at the moment. This is my ideal temp where I feel most energized and healthy. I hate our -40C and our +35C extremes. :angry:

Mid 70's and our usual barely existent humidity, I'll take it! I was going to have a spinach salad with chicken and honey mustard dressing, but instead I threw the whole thing on an arepa. Quick, easy and no mess. I followed up with a little cottage cheese and homemade apple butter.

That is a delicious combo. I am growing lots of arugula again this year as we go through a lot of it.

    • Hi Beachgrl, It won't hurt anything to go gluten-free now, except the possibility of getting a diagnosis of celiac disease.  When i went gluten-free, it seemed like the initial changes were spread over about 6 weeks.  I had gut spasms for that time.  And other changes, all for the better.  Initial recovery from celiac damage can take up to 18 months, so it can be a slow thing.  Some people get better much faster of course, because we are all individuals and not identical. Going gluten-free for celiac disease is a lifetime commitment though, and some people have a hard time doing that without a diagnosis.  Even minor amounts of gluten can cause us to react, so it is best to eat a very simple diet of whole foods at first.  Avoid dairy and processed foods.  I hope it works out for you.  I know some people with Crohns disease eat gluten-free and find it helps them.  Gluten is a tough thing to digest for all people, but most don't have an immune reaction to it like celiacs do.  
    • Honestly, I would not trust the school to provide a gluten-free meal except for fruit, salads, veggies, etc. I sub in a school cafeteria and I swear everything is breaded or on bread. Utensils are shared. They're very clean but unless you have a very knowledgeable person in there, I just wouldn't chance it. I found a slim Jim type snack that says gluten-free on it. If you want to give me your email or FB account, I can send you some very valuable info on 504's though. They carry the student right through college. I kept a copy of what a friend wrote about her daughter being in a sorority and just how the 504 helped immensely. But, I would definitely get one and still be prepared to pack a lunch. All our meals are delivered frozen and we just hear them up. If your school actually fixes food, that's different. 
    • Oh, I would suggest providing gluten-free goodies (e.g. Candy) or even a frozen cupcake (kept in the teacher's freezer) in the event of a party.  My daughter's classmate is severely allergic to peanuts.  Her mom did that and Abby was never left out!  😊
    • Hi Nobody, Welcome to the forum!  I noticed you said you have been avoiding wheat products.  That's good, but are you avoiding rye and barley also?  Wheat, rye, and barley are the 3 grains that cause reactions in celiac patients.  About 10% also react to oats. If you haven't had the full celiac antibodies test panel, it might be worthwhile getting that done now.  The ttg is just a basic test and is generally followed up by an endoscopy or the full celiac panel. I wouldn't worry a lot about getting cancer.  That doesn't happen often. It is possible some of the other grains you might be eating are contaminated.  A group did a test on several off the shelf products a few years ago that would not normally be thought of as having gluten and found some actually did have low levels of gluten.  Things like corn meal for example.
