Same thing exactly as my August 19 post:

Baguette with olive oil from Croatia, fleur de sel, prosciutto, fresh sheep cheese, fresh figs, chestnut honey from Croatia and toasted walnuts. Absolutely amazing. Everyone must try this at least once! :)

Vichyssoise Soup because it is chilly and raining. Love this weather! :)

I love the rain! It's the only thing about PA (other than my family) that I miss. You could share.

I've been eating leftovers for lunch every day. I feed my 1 1/2 year old cousin I babysit for 4 days a week and I usually pop a can of vegetables (he'll eat about 2/3 in a sitting :blink: ) and we split whatever leftover meat I have from the previous night. Pork tenderloin, pot roast, pork chops, steak, ham. We've been having a pretty good time of it. Lunch time is so much more pleasant now that I told his mom that I want him gluten free while he's in the house here. It was just far too complicated trying to feed him whatever gluten she brought him and try to get my own lunch and keep myself uncontaminated. I enjoy his gluten free company a whole lot more too. It's a blast being able to share a bowl of gelato with the little guy for an afternoon treat!

Hot dog on Udi's bun with homemade chili and slaw. Chili and slaw were leftovers, so it was a super easy lunch.

A greek yogurt, and some thai coconut taro crispy things. They're great! They taste like they should be made out of wheat, but it's just coconut and taro flour with sesame and a few other things. Totally recommend them!

Fancy schmancy duck breast salad - wilted greens with seared duck breast using some of its fat to create a red wine vinaigrette to which toasted pine nuts that have been crushed to the vinaigrette; rounds of goat cheese coated in dry crumbs and quickly seared. Not only that but plum chutney to go with all. Incredible.

It varies. Yesterday was a toasted purchased bagel (homemade are so much better!). So, it was the toasted bagel topped with tomato from my garden, ham, poached egg and hollandaise. One of my favourite lunches. I had the one purchased bagel languishing in the freezer (though bagels make far better croutons than purchased bread).

I tried out the Rootbeer Pulled Pork recipe I found on this topic - it was great! Threw a pork shoulder into a crockpot at 9 p.m. with a can of rootbeer and when I woke up it was ready to go. I shredded it and put on some Gluten Free BBQ sauce, dill pickels, and packed 2 pieces of Rudi's white bread. This is my new go to when I don't have time to cook. Also threw a Pea Steamer into the microwave for a side dish.

(Salvaged) Bread crusts with cream cheese and chocolate nut spread, followed by a salad, so the calories sort of cancel out. I've gone about 3 weeks now having a vegetable smoothie for breakfast, and this was in protest that I am not really a rabbit. I would have had the bread for breakfast, but it wouldn't finish cooking!

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
