#860239 The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Posted by alex11602 on 23 March 2013 - 02:43 PM

Tonight I'm trying another Mrs Leepers that my neighbor us, it's the chicken alfredo one. This is after I developed my own cookie recipe this morning and baked it up, I just keep finding stuff that I want to bake.

 

Also planning my Easter dessert menu since that gives me an excuse to bake more and so far I have carrot cake cookies, cranberry bread pudding and possibly some browned sugar candy.

Happy Birthday Love2travel! Hope you have a great day.

 

Tonight we are ordering in from someplace that has a great track record with gluten-free, and they have a huge menu. We are having sandwiches, mozzarella sticks, pierogies and my hubby is getting me a cannoli because that is probably the one thing that I never stopped missing.

#849248 Reactive Hypoglycemia

Posted by alex11602 on 19 January 2013 - 06:49 AM

I was having this same problem for the longest time and it's horrible and kinda scary so I feel for you.

To start with, does your sugar drop like that during the day or just at night?

That dinner was higher in sugar then in protein so it makes sense that your sugar bottomed out. It's possible that if you had a protein filled snack before dinner that it would have counteracted the amount of sugar in the sweet potatoes and cherries.

If just eating protein before bed does not help then you would also have to limit the amount of sugar that you intake. For example, to keep my sugar where it needs to be I have to try and limit my sugar to around 30g of added sugar a day and also eat at regular times. It's not easy and it's a pain in the rear end to figure out how much sugar is in what I put in my mouth and making sure that I eat, but it's worth it since I haven't had a hypo problem in over a year.

Since I have been busy getting ready for Christmas my husband made beef cubes with noodles.

My daughter made chocolate fudge on her own today, so proud of her :) Tomorrow we are going to tackle homemade butter to go with the mini corn muffins that are giving to my parents as a gift.

I also made a cinnamon sugar exfoliating scrub to give as a gift, never again will I buy a sugar scrub again it was so easy to make!

We are going over to my mom's house tonight and we are making chicken parm (the chicken is breaded with almond flour and we are using homemade sauce), salad and Annie Chun's pad thai noodles as the pasta.

For dessert I am trying Pamela's vanilla cake mix and I am making a peanut butter cream cheese frosting.

Tonight we are making burgers and fries. I found that if you soak the fries for 15-20 minutes in salted water then completely dry them, toss them with olive oil and salt before you bake them that they get really crispy.

We kind of had our dessert before dinner (just a spoonful of ice cream), So Delicious Mint Chip almond milk ice cream, my husband found it today and we couldn't wait to try it. It tasted like I remember Breyer's mint chocolate chip tasting.

#793611 Supportive Husband - Can't Talk About Medical Aspect

Posted by alex11602 on 06 May 2012 - 07:28 AM

Welcome to the board.

It is entirely possible that he just does not want to see you in pain when you need to do a gluten challenge in order to be tested. For us, my husband absolutely refused to let me do a gluten challenge for testing because he won't let me be put through hell when it won't necessarily give us a definitive answer. I personally think that the fact he is so supportive of you being gluten free should speak volumes about the fact that he just doesn't want you hurt.

I hope that you are able to figure out what works best for you in the situation. Good Luck!

#784564 If You Have Celiac Disease, Would You Keep Your Children Gluten Free For Life...

Posted by alex11602 on 01 April 2012 - 08:31 AM

My two children have a problem with gluten and if I had known what I do now about Celiac I would still have had them. And if it was possible to my husband and I would have welcomed more children especially after finding out about Celiac since we would know not to start them on gluten til they were older. Actually with my youngest I probably would have kept any other children gluten free in the house.

And besides, who knows if your child could be the next Albert Einstein or Bill Gates or find a cure for a disease. My oldest, who had very mild symptoms(mostly skin), wants to be a pediatrician so that she can help kids who are as sick as her sister was.

#773821 Getting Better All The Time:)

Posted by alex11602 on 15 February 2012 - 07:41 PM

My daughter had a well visit appointment at the doctors today and I am amazed at the difference in her in the past year.

At a year old before going gluten free she weighed 12 lbs 10 oz and was 22 inches long.
Today at 26 months old and almost a year gluten free she weighs 27 lbs 6 oz and is 33 1/2 inches tall!

And another huge plus is that this time last year her hemoglobin was 8.3 and it is now 12.4.

Today was a day for good news with her...even though we still have things to work through I am so happy to have a healthy little girl :)

#765779 More Progress

Posted by alex11602 on 17 January 2012 - 07:23 PM

I just wanted to share that I am feeling like I have made alot of progress in the past two weeks. For the last year I have been very nervous about going out (I really only left the house once every 3 months for quite a while.) and pretty afraid of food also so my life kinda felt like it was spiraling out of control. I had been coming here and reading alot and I sort of got the feeling that maybe I could get my life back....thanks to reading everyone's posts especially those of Irishheart, Love2travel, skylark and ravenwoodglass.

Well on Jan. 6th I just decided to go to the library with my husband and then just over a week later I went food shopping with him. I was also able to go out with my sister yesterday for the first time in years (I even able to eat breakfast before I took her to the eye doc.) and we went shopping and it was just a wonderful day. I also only had 4 mini panic attacks and was able to get through them. Plus my dad is taking me to register for my college classes tomorrow.

I know that I still have a very long way to go and going out 3 times in 2 weeks isn't recovery, but I feel that it is a big step in the right direction. Anyway a huge Thank you!!! to everyone!

#765429 Anyone React To Soda?

Posted by alex11602 on 16 January 2012 - 06:29 PM

This is a SUPER SCARY thought :ph34r:
For as much of a trial that this has been, I think I am glad than when I started I did not know the WHOLE list . It would have completely FREAKED ME OUT !!!!!.
Even now it freaks me out some days ,some days not so much :)


That's very true and I think I finally am getting to where I'm not completely terrified of getting sick from food, but if I would have known at the beginning I would have been very overwhelmed.
