#678122 What Do You Miss?

Posted by wheeleezdryver on 24 February 2011 - 04:59 PM

I'm a caregiver to a disabled family member, you darn well better bet that I miss CONVENIENCE the most!!

I dislike that the only things I can get at Wendy's is the chili, baked potato, and *maybe* a side salad (and since i seem to have problems w/ fructose, even the chili or salad can be problematic for me)...

I dislike that I now have to go to at least 3-4 different grocery stores in order to get all the food items I need...



But I'm also thankful that I've gotten to learn new things, eat new things, meet new people, and do something proactive towards my health, and that I have a supportive husband :)...

#673508 A Little Comic Relief

that's a great story!!

and if the husband thinks we gluten- free'ers bad at Superbowl time, he should try shopping in the gluten- free section right before Thanksgiving or Christmas (the only time I've ever had to wait more than 2 mins in line at our local gluten- free store was when I went there just a couple days before one of the holidays this last holiday season)

Chili & baked potato from Wendy's... didn't know they could add cheese to the chili until they offered to today, even tho i didn't have it added, it's good to know...(this was only aobut my 3rd time getting the chili, and the other 2 times I ordered it from a different store)

I think it goes for any boy under 30... :rolleyes:



Make that any boy under 40... or 45...lol!
My DH is 37. and I'm having to jog my memory to think of the last time he ate something green. Oh wait, does lettuce & pickels on a hamburger count?? (Now that I think about it, there were some veggies on the Subway sandwhich he had about a week ago :D .) And i'm having a fun time trying to imagine any of my brothers or BIL's being big veggie eaters, and they are all in their 30's or very early 40's ... :)


But then again, my diet of late hasn't been all that 'green' either (but that's due to trying to figure out other food intolerances!!!)

#669763 Healing With Gluten Free Diet

Posted by wheeleezdryver on 22 January 2011 - 09:50 AM

That is absolutely AWESOME And WONDERFUL!!!!

I used to get cold sores pretty much every couple weeks (sometimes more than one at a time!), and since going gluten-free I haven't gotten them as often, and actually, I'm 6 mo gluten-free now and rarely get them!!
I also had to cut out all dairy-- just this last week i've been able to eat cheese and a little yogurt w/ no problem! (or at least not any really noticable problem!)

#666904 Anywhere To Donate gluten-free Food?

Posted by wheeleezdryver on 10 January 2011 - 01:37 PM

I know there have been a couple people here who have said they're on a limited income, maybe one or a couple of them would be interested and you could work out a way to send it to them :).

#657075 The Simple Things In Life

Posted by wheeleezdryver on 29 November 2010 - 12:33 PM

I love this... for more reasons than one :)...Pres. Utchdorf is an amazing man:)...

I have had to slow down quite a bit in my life over the last five years, due to my DH's as well as my own health issues. Slowing down has been a godsend for me. There is no way I could go as fast at everything i used to. Now i get to take time to care for myself, as well as care for my Dh as best as I can, and spend as much time as we can together, and i'm thankful for that :).

#652492 So I Am Quite Proud Of Myself...

Posted by wheeleezdryver on 10 November 2010 - 06:19 PM

Anyway, lately I have been unable to sleep past 6 am... (When I used to sleep in till like 10 am...) So today, I actually got up and made my husband a nice breakfast. It consisted of cheesy scrambled eggs, homemade tortillas from dinner a couple nights ago, huckleberry jam, salsa, Lemonade... (Don't ask why he wanted lemonade for breakfast.) Oh and Peppermint tea, as he has a cold. (No I didn't have any of this... But still). In the past year and almost nine months we've been married, I have never once made him breakfast... I was such a good wife this morning
Then I promptly proceeded to start making dinner (I love crockpots... they make it so much easier to cook dinner while at work.) which will be chicken curry. Yay!
I love that I actually have energy to do stuff now that I am gluten free. And I love that I dont spend forever in bed. I am so much better at living life now....



Yay for more energy!! (I'm a little jealous... but that's okay:))
Have a good evening, girl!

#647870 What's The Bread That's Inedible But Makes Good Stuffing?

Posted by wheeleezdryver on 20 October 2010 - 04:36 PM

My first gluten-free stuffing was with Ener-G. I didn't like it but then I don't like stuffing. Daughter didn't like it either and she was the one who needed gluten-free. Everybody else seemed to like it but there was a lot of leftover.

Both i and my husband don't like stuffing... so glad to know we're not the only ones :). i'm not much of one for savory foods.
in the years I've done the holiday cooking, i only made cornbread once... and that was last year, i was attempting a gluten-free holiday meal (I knew i had at least some problem w/ gluten, but hadn't gotten completely serious yet 9that has since changed)& had found a gluten-free recipe that sounded good, so tried it... and used the *Ener-G* bread, and it worked well...it was good, but again, we're not stuffing fans. The turkey, mashed potatoes, pies, (and for my DH, cornbread) yep! but stuffing, not so much...
