I have nearly a pound of fresh ginger so searched for a recipe.
I found and made Coconut and Ginger Chicken and veg with basmati rice. It was great but next time I will spice it up a bit more.


Delicious!

Mine is Indian again. And therefore veg and gluten-free, lactose free, soy free, corn free, nut free (but quite satisfying despite all that).

-Gujarti-style hot sweet and sour potatoes
-Indian-style wok sauteed turnip greens
-pickled beets

(I was too lazy hungry to wait for rice to cook. The greens came out really good this time!

lucia, just off the top of my head, ginger ale sounds good with chicken :)

Interesting ... I could try braising a chicken breast with gingerale on one of those nights when my husband isn't around. That would be ... well, my idea anyway of ... fun!

Lime and Sea Salt Sweet Potato Fries


I want these!

Tonight I am making:

-Gujarti (Indian) style Hot Sweet and Sour Potatoes
-Ong Choy (a type of greens, like Bok Choy) cooked Indian style in the wok
-brown rice (no chapatis, unfortunately)

This was the first time I attempted to cook an Indian dish without following a recipe (the Choy). It wasn't fantastic, but it wasn't bad either.

This meal was meat free, lactose free, egg free, soy free, corn free, and of course gluten free!

In Topic: Newly Diagnosed And Feeling Worse Than Ever. Is This Normal?

When I went off gluten, the withdrawal was so bad that it reminded me of scenes from movies showing addicts kicking heroin. I had chills and sweats, insomnia, irrational thoughts, inappropriate anger, etc. That said, many people on the board report experiencing withdrawal, and the withdrawal looks different by individual. So, yes, you could be experiencing withdrawal. (Ever given up sugar? Or caffeine? Also, substances that cause withdrawal.)

Just bear with it. You'll start experiencing the benefits. It's comforting that you have a diagnosis and know that this is the right thing to do for yourself.

In Topic: If You Could Eat Anything...

I have discovered so many naturally gluten-free foods that I rarely or never ate before being forced to go gluten-free: polenta, quinoa, so many kinds of rice, amaranth, rice wrappers, collard leaves as wrappers, risotto... I find that there are so many naturally gluten-free recipes that are DELICIOUS! Much of the world eats a naturally gluten-free diet anyway. And now I cook much more, so I enjoy better food, in general. My husband would tell you the same thing.

That said, if you are really pursuing excellent gluten-free food, I'd suggest looking at some of the gluten-free blogs. Gluten Free Girl would be a good place to start.

I tend to tell stories. People seem to get it that way. They can relate, I guess. I usually tell about accidentally putting a piece of my gluten-free bread in the toaster after being gluten-free for many months. It made me really sick. I emphasize, "Just the crumbs set off the autoimmune reaction!"
