In Topic: What Is Your Daily Diet?

29 April 2010 - 07:34 AM

Breakfast: Peanut butter apple with skim milk, egg muffins (toss chopped veggies/meat/cheese into a muffine tin and toppped with beaten eggs), PB & J Lara bar with skim milk, PB & J smoothie (frozen strawberries, banana, milk, peanut butter), and I always eat a banana (unless I have the smoothie) on my drive in to work before breakfast.

Lunch: Usually leftovers from dinner or chicken salad with rice crackers, salad with some sort of chopped meat on top, soup, etc.

Dinner: Baked ziti, spagheti, baked chicken (spicy thai peanut, lemon pepper, sweet and sour, salsa, etc), shrimp scampi, tacos, and tons of homemade soups (taco soup, chicken tortilla soup, veggie soup, chicken noodles soup), I also love making chilli and having it either as regular chili, or "Mac" with noodles and onions, on top of a baked poatoe, etc. I also just tried a recipe for fiesta cabbage rolls that were awesome, just make ground beef with taco seasoning packets, brown rice, onions, garlic, and a can of diced tomatoes and roll in lightly steamed cabbage leaves.

Snacks: Chocolate, almonds, gluten-free cookies, guac or hummus with carrots, fruit, popcorn, chips & salsa, etc.

PS: Best fruit dip ever - sour creme, powdered sugar, amaretto liqueur.

In Topic: No Symptoms After Glutening

It took me a while to figure it out too. I was so used to a little bloating here, a cramp there...that a slight discomfort seemed so normal I hardly would notice. However - I'm getting better about listening to my body. I was crazing yogurt and all I had was my husbands Activia vanilla...I read that it's processed in a facility that has wheat...ate it any way...and now I am bloated and just a bit crampy.

As you get more in-tune with your body you'll pick up on all those little signs that you got so used to just dealing with before you realized what was going on.

Everyone here has given great advice! I don't know that I can add much more - I think the snack idea is great and I really like Larabars. Well not all of them...but they have a PB&J one that i SWEAR tastes like eating a regular PB&J on white bread...SO GOOD! (especially since I can't find a Gluten-Free bread I like) They are also cheap here, just bought a TON on sale, 4 for $5, at Giant.

Other than lara bars I keep Gluten-Free Pretzels and rice crackers at work and will sometimes bring some soft cheese to spread on them for a snack. Let me look in my snack drawer...

Almonds, dark chocolate, rice crackers, lara bars, tea, Dr. lucy's cookies...

And any portable fruits and veggies are great.

And YES. I thank GOD for Wendy's chilli!!! And Frostys!!!

In Topic: How To Not Get In The Way Of Your Own Recovery? So Confused...

Not really any advice but wanted you to know your not alone.

I'm 24 and I told my doctor exactly what you said...I shouldn't be this tired, this worn down...this is the prime of my life and I can't even play a role in it.

Since going gluten free I've felt much better, much more free to be involved in my own life. I am somewhat concerned about dairy but haven't gotten the nerve to eliminate it yet. I think the earlier idea of a food journal is cricual - it can bring some things to light you may never have noticed.

You're in the right place though - everyone here will do all we can to support and give you advice.
