Its Heating Up!

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to make a list for my first gluten-free grocery shopping experience and all I can think of is, "Dang, I have to cook in this heat?" :(

I want to eat as much naturally gluten-free food as possible, and things that will help me begin to heal my body. What do you like to eat when the weather heats up??

Anything grilled. I will grill veggies and meats...fruit if I can find peaches.

I grill a lot of meat then chop for a salad. I hate salads in the winter, love them in the summer. I like wilted salads - grill veggies and meats and make a hot dressing (mmmm bacon grease rules) then toss with salad greens.

Fajitas or skirt steak with cold sauces like chimichurri.

I'll break out the crock pot because it's less hot than the oven.

Egg salad. Yum.

Shrimp and rice salad.

Cold fruit salads - mixed melons. Yogurt and stone fruit and honey and almonds....

Figs. Figs. Figs. Fresh figs. Figs and bacon. Figs and goat cheese.

AND MARGARITAS!!!!!!

87 degrees F here today, omg! A few days ago there were freeze warnings in the overnight hours. It's crazy. And I don't have my a/c in the window yet, I don't usually get it put in until the end of May.

I knew it was going to heat up, so I did a bit of cooking over the last couple of days, making some flat bread, boiled a few eggs and last night I cooked a bunch of peeled red potatoes in my pressure cooker. It was the first time I've used it for that, and they cooked perfectly in 12 minutes -- I'm always using the pressure cooker for potato salad in the future.

So today's menu was / will be (going to prepare dinner in a few minutes...)

Maple buckwheat flakes cereal for breakfast, celery with peanut butter for a snack, then some potato salad because I was still hungry. I guess it was more a late lunch than a snack.

Dinner will be a turkey & tomato sammich. Dessert will be a couple of Pamela's ginger snap cookies.

This will be my first summer gluten-free, so I'll take notes from y'all for more good ideas!

Cold sesame noodles!

Cook rice pasta (spaghetti-style), rinse in cold water, and set aside.

Sauce:

Mix 4T peanut butter with 4T of sesame oil.

Add:

2T minced garlic

4T sliced scallions (or use onion and garlic powder to taste)

6 teaspoons of sugar

1/2 c white or rice vinegar

up to 1 c gluten-free soy sauce (I think 1 c is too much, I like my sauce thicker)

Top a plateful of noodles with scrambled egg, strips of chicken or turkey, and strips of cucumber, pour on some of the sauce. Hot sauce optional.

But you can throw any leftover veggies or meat in with this sauce, it's versatile. And the only cooking is the noodles.

    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Hello... 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac. Looking at the various flours used to replace traditional flour is a bit overwhelming. I have a Retsel grain mill and I'm considering milling my own gluten-free flour. I have a few questions. First and foremost, would it be cost effective? Obviously, buying flour already processed is more convenient but terribly expensive. Does anyone here have experience with how accessible the ingredients are to do the milling yourself? Rice is readily accessible as well as many varieties of beans. What about milling coconut flour and some of the more exotic flours? Secondly, I'm wondering if milling at home will produce a fine enough product to be comparable to what can be purchased in store. Any experiences or suggestions would be appreciated.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      A very good suggestion GFinDC. I have thought for some time that I should have made the title of the topic night vision celiac because it may have nothing to do with celiac disease even if it started at the same time. Key words are so important. I will search first and may post on one of these sites later. I have now searched quite extensively and have not so far discovered anything helpful except that if you google night vision scotomas you get to this topic!
    • Anxiously waiting
      I'll check withthe Doctor tomorrow. So weird coz i feel ok today. In a weird way i hope the endoscopy is positive at least then I'll know what the issue is lol.
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Sorry  To give you more info I had the endoscopy because I was diagnosed last year with Barretts Esophagus and gastritis. I've been on medication since but still had issues so they went back in to check how everything was going and to make sure the Barretts hadn't turned into anything nasty. I had a celiac blood test in 2014 ( negative) and the endoscopy in 2015 didn't show lymphocytes in the duodenum well that's if he biopsied that. I also had a colonoscopy with this years endo and all of that came back fine - I thought if I was celiac that would be affected also? As far as I know the biopsy only showed lymphocytes (white blood cells?) in the duodenum no damage to the villi but he used many big words that I didn't understand so he could have said more. With the blood test all I know is that I had a blood test for Celiac - I didn't know there were different tests for it. I'm a complete newbie with all this stuff so I just don't get what questions to ask him.  I'm so impatient I just want to know. I have a big family, a husband that is FIFO and I'm a stresser. 
    • Help interpreting biopsy results after gluten-free for 7 months
      Hi there, Just got my follow up biopsy results after being dx with celiac 7 months ago (dx with blood test + biopsy). Could anyone help interpret these new results as the doc wasn't much help... Basically he said good news is it looks like gut has healed up due to gluten-free diet. Bad news is that he has no explanation as to why I still have all of my symptoms.  Any help interpreting the attached results would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
