In Topic: Lowering Food Costs

A freezer is a good investment. Even the small tabletop ones will help. That way you can stock up on whichever meat is on sale and NEVER have to pay full price. I eat mostly chicken and when it goes on sale (once a month here) I buy enough to last until next month. And when I cook it I cook big batches so I don't use as much gas for cooking or heat the house up. Once it's cooked you can freeze it. For me, I make meal sized packages, but for a family you could package larger amounts. And it actually tastes better after it's been frozen - not as dry.

Shopko Naturals are the supplements I take. "Contain no sugar, salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, artificial colors or flavors". They are cheap too. Most are $7.99 or less and they frequently have a buy one get one free special. They don't have a multi so I am taking 3,000 mcg of B12, 5,000 mcg of biotin, 4,000 iu of D3, 1,000 mcg of C, 1,000 mg of calcium, 500mg of magnesium, 5 mg of zinc, and I also get my probiotics there - 500 million L. acidophilus LA14, L. bulgaricus 64.

I have no answer for you but if I post on your thread it'll go back to the top where people who know more about testing will see it. I hope you get some answers. :huh:

User, eggs are not dairy. Dairy is milk and milk products. And now that you mention it, eggs made me nauseous at first. That bothered me because I have always loved eggs. Then I read that cooking eggs in the shell without exposing them to air caused, I don't remember exactly, but I think it was higher sulfer content that could cause nausea. So now I do over easy instead of soft boiled. They don't make me sick anymore. (The trouble is there is such a high mineral content in the water here the egss taste funny compared to where I used to come from.)


And I think it's a bunch of hogwash about becoming allergic to things you eat every day. I mean, even though WE have celiac, not everyone does, and don't most people eat bread every day? Don't coffee drinkers drink coffee every day? How about kids who drink milk every day?


You may have also heard that you can become allergic to something you DON'T eat all the time. Once again - wrong. There are a lot of crazy ideas floating around on the internet, but most of them are not true.

Well, potatoes are an example. They were giving me trouble so I did away with them for six months. Then I tried them and now, if I don't overdo it, I can have them two or three times a week.


Blueberries are my favorite fruit and I keep trying them every six months but so far they still don't work.


I live on a very limited diet, partly because I don't really like most fruits and vegetables, and partly because I'm chicken. I mean, why put myself through a potential reaction for something I'm not crazy about to begin with? For the past three years I have been eating meat, rice, broccoli, cauliflower, butter, ice cream, Canyon Bakehouse bread, and some gluten-free potato chips on occasion. I've got some good vitamins now so I feel pretty good. It's all I really need.


I had some home made peach ice cream the other day and it didn't bother me so now I know I can tolerate peaches, but I'm not crazy about them. As a matter of fact, last night I mixed a little bit of the peach ice cream with vanilla to water down the peach taste.


Yeah, I'm weird.
