#722735 What's For Breakfast Today?

Posted by on 14 August 2011 - 10:29 AM

Oh, I'm a little in love with the gluten free rice crispies. I've been eating them like popcorn though, plain or w/ PB as a snack, rather than as cereal.

Today I had appam (Indian rice pancakes), carrot/cauliflower curry, and apricot mousse (pureed overripe apricot with a touch of gelatin to make it firm up.). Oh, and piece of chocolate while I made the curry and pancakes.

#722236 Hair Getting Less Grey After Gluten Free

I sort of think I have less. I used to always notice it under fluorescent light, but not so often now.

Salmon Artichoke Patties (retro with a post-millenium twist)
Summer Smashed Red Potatoes
Peas (freezer, sadly, the garden was too wet to pick from)

First serious cooked meal in almost a week-- I've been furiously working on final edits on my cooking for one cookbook. It's almost there, but find it sort of ironic that I've been living on peanut butter and carrot sticks while finishing a cookbook on healthy eating for one.

#713962 Are These Normal Reactions To Gluten-Free Diet?

Posted by on 03 July 2011 - 08:39 AM

It sounds like you are either getting some gluten contamination-- work or something you eat but your son doens't maybe?-- or else you are having problems with another food. Dairy would be suspect #1. Take it out for a couple of weeks and see how you do. If that doens't help, some deeper thought might be needed to see if you're reacting to eggs, or soy, or nuts, or peanuts, or if you're super-sensitive to miniscule trace amounts.

The other thing to consider is the "lipstick and moisturizers" category: shaving creams, shampoos, sunscreens, etc. Anything you could get on your face or hands can fairly easily end up in your mouth. Pet food. Wall paper glue... play-doh...

Really hungry is pretty typical. I also get really hungry a day or two later if I've been exposed to gluten.

#712456 How Does Everyone Else Deal With Work And Symptoms

Posted by on 27 June 2011 - 05:19 PM

I'm a nurse and can't run to the bathroom every 5 mins. Some days are better than others but being dx in April I am still new to this. Sometimes the abd pain, nausea and fatigue makes it rough to get out of bed. The brain fog is better but I don't feel good all the time yet. Any suggestions of how to deal?

The other thing is to set up the medical leave with HR. Make it official so that you can designate it as a health condition where you are unable to work. You can take it a bit at a time-- it does NOT need to be a solid three months. Then, if you have a few days when you're not functioning you can call out sick without worrying about your job (paycheck, on the other hand...). It's a burden on your floor/colleagues, but if you're not functioning well, you may be a burden even when there. Healing is vital, and you may need more down time to deal with it.

I second looking for contamination-- is your kitchen shared?-- and eliminating food from outside sources and dairy. It's been a while, and GI symptoms are often (but not always) substantially better within a month or two. A strict elimination diet is a pain, but often the easiest way to settle your GI system down and figure it out. Google it, check it out with colleagues, or PM if you want to hear what I did.

As I was somewhat remiss in the vegetable area towards the end of last week, I'm starting this week off on a green note:

Fresh Pea and Artichoke Soup
Collards, nuked in the microwave
Coconut Flour Waffle with Plum Preserves

... rather a lot of snow peas while stringing them for tomorrow ...

And perhaps a bit of chocolate or some blueberries in a bit.

red hot blues, salsa, pinto beans, sweet potato, garlic scapes, and ... dum dum dum cheese (not an entirely sensible decision but I wanted it and decided to just go for it. Maybe today is the day when it will digest perfectly.)
