My husband is working insane hours for the holidays so it is just me and the kiddo today. Gonna steam and candy some carrots to have with my leftover turkey. I think I have a little fresh cheese left I can fry up to have with it. I'll throw together some tapioca pudding for dessert and eat it while it's still warm.

An amazingly good salad.

Hearts of romaine, watercress, raddicio (sp?), a fresh sliced perfectly ripened bosc pear, creamy goat cheese, walnuts and a balsamic reduction. I tried to think of what would make it better and couldn't think of anything but how good it was. It was that good.

It's snowing yet again. Man, I'm sick of winter already! :wacko:

To remedy that, I am making Black Bean Soup with Chiles en Adobo, Lime and BACON. Probably some sort of fruit. But all the winter stuff is rock hard or pulpy or putrid.

Lazy- pan fried hot dog bites with broccoli. I get frozen organic veggies

at Trader Joe's for a good price, and they have the BEST veggies, and

that way I don't have to do any of the chopping or deal with stuff going

bad on my counter or in my fridge. Is a win-win!

I don't know why I am torturing myself, but my craving today is for a coconut milk, mango and raspberry smoothie with a touch of lime juice. It is currently -14C so my teeth will probably be chattering in a few moments... :blink:

You, quite frankly, are as crazy as me. I drink milkshakes all winter long. My husband thinks I'm a nut. I'm like... you married me so I guess you're the one with the problem! :lol:

I actually cooked today. I felt like a burger so I grilled one up on my new Cuisinart grill. Made some arepas and made some queso fresco for it. I meant to fry some green beans but remembered I was going to about the same time the burgers were getting done so I just popped a can of them open instead. Not nearly as good, but at least it was a vegetable.

You're right - we are both crazy. My lips can practically turn blue yet I keep on with those smoothies.

But today is a soup day. I made pasta e fagioli and it is excellent. Today I am also making an artisan loaf of bread, with a slit slightly off centre and heavily dusted with flour, and awesome flavour. I love that I can form it into a loaf with my hands.

My husband did some spoiling today. He cubed up some potatoes for hash then added ham, sauteed mushrooms and softly-scrambled eggs with scallions. He had his with melted Cheddar; mine was without. I just love that type of lunch, especially on a cold -20C blizzarding day.

I want your snow... send it to me please.... heck i'd take the negative temps with it....

At any rate, i had an apple (a rather large one at that) with peanutbutter and honey as a dip. Its been a couple of months since i had a raw apple. Nice change of pace me thinks and my tummy didn't act up at all (outside of when i got too full, but who's doesn't?) :lol:

You can have as much snow as you want. Honestly. We've had lots of snow and cold for six solid weeks and have about five more months ahead of this. Snow looks pretty for awhile but it gets sickening having to bundle up all the time and do the sidewalk and driveway every other day. The streets are slick. Can you tell I dislike our winters? If we only had three months of snow it would be fine but when you have six months to look forward to it gets tired very quickly. It just seems to drag on and on and on and on... We have high incidences of Seasonal Affective Disorder here.

Creamy chicken soup and a bagel with cream cheese.

Creamy chicken soup? Sounds yummy. Did you make it? If so, can you share the recipe? I miss Campbell's soup.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
