Okay, I know it's not Tuesday, but here is a good side dish recipe. Note, there are two versions. Also note that I am a newbie and to the best of my knowledge, everything listed is gluten-free.

Broasted Red Potatoes

2 lbs. Aize "A' Red Potatoes-washes, dried, and halved
2 Tbs. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Dried Thyme or Herbs de Provence
Kosher Salt to taste (I use about 2-3 tsp.)

Mix together in a bowl.
Place cut side down on a cookie sheet.
Place in a COLD oven on bottom rack.
Cook 20-25 mins at 450.
When done, immediately remove from cookie sheet to prevent the potatoes from turning soggy. They have a great golden brown crunch!

In the summer, I take the finished product and make it in to a salad by adding:

1 1/2 Tbs. Rice Wine Vinegar
1 Tbs. Mayonnaise
1 Clove Garlic (minced)
Pepper to taste
---Mix These Ingredients---
3 Tbs. Olive Oil
---Whisk In Oil---
1/2 C. Kalamata Olives (chopped)
2 Tbs. Fresh Parsley (chopped)
1/2 Small Red Onion (slivered)

Serve at room temp. for best flavor. Once you refrigerate it, it tends to get mushy.

If anyone else has some good side dishes...I am totally burnt out on my recipes!

Thank you for that insight. It made me remember I used to take Levasin (sp?) when I was a little kid and diagnosed with "IBS". It did actually help me, but I had totally forgotten about it. Do you dissolve it under your tongue, or swallow it?

In Topic: Blood Test Results Within Normal Ranges

I am right there with the rest of you. Got my blood tests back on Friday and all my doctor's assistant said is that it was "negative for a wheat allergy". Considering that isn't even what I was tested for, I thought it was amusing, especially since I can't even get my GI to return my calls.
Bottom line is I did the gluten free diet as a last resort because I was so deperate to resolve my "IBS" that I have dealt with most of my life. After only three weeks, I feel about a 70% improvement in my IBS symptons, and marked improvement with my headaches, anxiety, and PMS symptoms.
It would be nice to be validated, so I too am going to try the Entero testing as well as the York. It may cost a little money, but if I am feeling better, I don't care!!!

I mostly shop at co-ops and natural food stores for my gluten-free products. But they are now carrying some of the basics (Ener G breads and gluten-free mixes) at our mainstream stores (Cub & Rainbow here in the midwest) in the organic food department. I am lucky enough to have a gluten-free bakery close by too. I guess I am pretty spoiled!
