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.

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
