In Topic: Eating Too Well

I would love to know what you've been eating that makes you so happy :)

Sorry for my slow response, I've been M.I.A.

I make miga's for breakfast (scrambled eggs with tortilla strips, hash browns, cheddar cheese and salsa) YUMMMMM

Cinnamon flavored Chex cereal

gluten-free blueberry waffles

Tuna on toasted gluten-free bread (piled high!)

Pepperoni, black olive gluten-free pizza (a local chain makes an AWESOME one)

Sliced apples baked in the oven with gluten-free fake butter and cinnamon

gluten-free Chocolate bars

gluten-free popcorn

Marina sauce with potato/basil gnocchi

Jason's Deli Fire Roasted Chicken Soup

Crunchy beef or chicken tacos

Fried potatoes

Baked potatoes with Hormel chili and cheese and sometimes I add barbecued chicken pieces to it too YUMMMY

GL Double Chocolate cookies

Lot's of fresh fruits and veggies

Ice Cream with chocolate topping

If you need brand names on anything I listed, just let me know! These are all of my "comfort foods" that I've been able to duplicate in a gluten-free version. I'm still missing flour tortillas horribly. If I could just find a way to have burritos, wraps and soft tacos, I'd be a 100% happy camper!

In Topic: Glutened At Chili's?

Here's my recent Chili's experience.

Back at the table, the waitress arrived with just the kid's food. She told me there was a delay, a problem, with my food. I asked her what the problem could be and here is what she said; "UM.......yea......apparently, the cook wasn't careful with your food or something....ya see, we've had all these customers come in that are eating gluten free by choice because it's a fad, so the cook didn't take the whole ordering from the gluten free menu seriously, he just figured you were another food fad person. Then the managar ran back and told him you were the real deal and that she saw hives on your arms just from touching the table and that she had to re-clean it for you. She told him that your food had better be safe or he could cause you to leave the restaurant by ambulance. So, the cook had to throw away your food and start over, and do it right. We're really sorry, we actually even have 3 waitreeses who have gone gluten free because it's popular right now. But don't worry, the cook does know how to make sure your food is safe, and he's making sure it's safe now"

So, as it turns out, because it's popular to go gluten-free, restaurants may not take us seriously.....scary.

Wow! Thank you for your story Trish Trish! Why would someone go gluten free if they didn't need to? A FAD?!? Wow. I'm wondering if that is what happened to my food now. Hmmmm... I haven't been glutoned since but then again, the only take out I've had is Jason's and only once.

Well, NancyL... I joined you in glutening myself tonight.... with PIZZA! It was soooo good going down, after 3 days of totally gluten-free. After talking with my regular doctor yet again, I may do the biopsy, and didn't want to get too far into the gluten-free thing. I read your post and laughed! What are the odds we'd do that on the same night. Its been about 4 hours and tummy hurts, heartburn started, and I now have a headache which I didn't have for 3 days.... that a rare thing for me... not to have a headache. Every little "mini test" is like this. I'm totally convinced its either celiac disease or NCGS. So once the biopsy is done.... there's no looking back! I hope you enjoyed your gluten party tonight! You'll be paying the piper tomorrow... right along with me! LOL :P

LOL, we're in synch. I hope you enjoyed your pizza and that you're not feeling too bad today. I have a headache myself today and of course the cramping and the Big D. :D I just hope it only lasts for a day or two this time.

And then have some delicous cake for dessert!

And a buttery croissant before bed!

Hey! Ya gotta test it right?

Good luck, I hope you don't get too sick, but I hope you enjoy your pizza!

I resisted the cookies.. lol I ended up snacking on some of my gluten-free cookies last night. It made me laugh to remember this post. :P

Well, I ate the pizza and NO stomach pain (and yes, it was very tasty but I liked the gluten-free pizza from our local chain just as much) :P. Of course my other issue has returned this morning but I expected that. The most important aspect is that I have no "appendix" pain. I knew I'd had the pain on empty stomach's before and the pain didn't go away with a bm so somewhere inside me, I knew that part couldn't be intestinal but I had to try. Gastro it ain't.... Ba-bye to the female plumbing!

You haven't been gluten free for very long. If you are reluctant to have this surgery and it isn't a life or death matter like uterine cancer you could hold off for at least a couple of months and see if it resolves on the diet. If it doesn't then you could go ahead with the surgery. You could also ask her about doing another freeup of the adhesions. They do often grow back after a few years but it would give you some relief and allow you to keep your uterus.

Well Ravenwoodglass, that was darn wise advice and I should've followed it (and probably would have if I'd seen it before eating)! If I'm to have the surgery, I'd like to have it while school is still in though so I only have 1 child at home during the day while I recover. Waiting too long would incur more E.R. visits and they cost me about $200.00 out of pocket each. My ob didn't recommend going back in again to just repair it, she said we'd just have to keep doing this and since I'm done having kids (and no way to change my mind), I might as well do the hysterectomy. I just wanted to be as sure as I could be.
