Thanks for starting this thread! Ben and Jerry's made a mango lime sorbet. I think I will try this with some lime juice!

I've been particularly lazy lately. Dessert tonight was a rare out of season cantaloupe and cottage cheese. (Which is also what I had for lunch.)

Grilled mango (used the George Foreman) and a little dark rum sauce (brown sugar, dark rum and lime juice reduced) over vanilla ice cream. :P

Thanks for the thread. It's like the hokey pokey. Isn't desert what it's all about? xxx

My desserts have been somewhat curtailed, since I'm on Weight Watchers. However I have found that Jello brand sugar free/fat free puddings made with skim milk are great with fresh fruit. Stir some blueberries into the vanilla, peaches with butterscotch and strawberries with chocolate. So far I've lost 16 pounda and have 20 more to go!

You're welcome.

The lime sounds good, mine was a bit bland, the mango's didn't have good flavor.

Will you share the recipe? I'm allergic to pecans, but walnuts might work, right? Or Macadamian nuts?

My neighbor gave me a huge bag of mangos last night. I call her almost every Sunday and ask if she's in the mood for weird soup for her lunch, and she always agrees. (She said the beet soup had a great flavor but the color kind of freaked her out.) (It kind of freaked me out too!)

I think she paid it forwards and backwards, I've been delivering her soup for two years and only occasionally will eat what she's cooked, even though she understands cc and ingredients and cooking utensils.

I'm having a mango fest this weekend!

Hopefully not too off topic, but I love potato vodka, big ice cubes (the kind you make in a tray, not from an ice maker or a bag of ice, a couple of mango slices and some diet tonic. Schwepps diet is the best in mho. That was my dessert tonight.

Has anyone tried ChocoVine? My daughter-in-law loves it but I had no idea it was gluten-free until I read the review. I bet the ChocoVine Raspberry would be good served over ice cream...maybe topped with some raspberries, too.

I made my husband some white chocolate macadamia popsicles. They're gluten free but I don't do white chocolate. He says they're pretty good though and he's been finishing dinner with one every night. We were out last night and I had creme brulee, I probably need to lay off dessert for a month now. :lol:

Aren't adult popsicles fun? I am really into them, too. My favourites include raspberry cream, blood orange creamsicle, coconut pineapple, herb-infused lemon, pomegranate yogurt and the best of all time chocolate banana with bacon. I am not a chocolate fan but the bacon puts it over the top for me. :D

I got a really good deal on ripe peaches so we have peach cobbler. Just used the recipe from my good ole Betty Crocker cookbook with a few substitutions. I had forgotten how good cobbler is.

My daughter will be having oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. She's away for 5 weeks and had to hunt down the package at the dorm. She was determined to find them when she knew they were delivered! :P

:D:) You're welcome.

(I love my drawstring pants.) I need to go shopping and get some fresh fruits.

Last night I had an ice cream float made with french vanilla and orange pop. Taste just like a cream-sickle, tonight I am having a beer for dessert.

    • It sounds like you're doing great. That's amazing that your anxiety has decreased like that. You're obviously doing something really good for your health. With the other things I'm sure they will get better in time. After I gave up gluten I had a bad year but overall it got better. Things like anxiety and insomnia massively improved over time with being gluten free. However, going Paleo (which you are on your way to with the no dairy too) really helped my anxiety, as did running and self-taught acupressure. In particular I found processed gluten free foods were awful for my mood. I know you have to find your own way but I really want to encourage you to see how you feel without that if you haven't already. I also can't afford therapy but when I did have it, that helped too but just being well, gives you the chance to sort your own thoughts and feelings out even without a therapist. Good luck
    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
