Topics I've Started

Gluten Free Noodles In The Microwave

06 September 2013 - 04:03 PM

I attempted to cook some gluten-free noodles in the microwave today because I REALLY wanted some alfredo.  Well the noodles got all goopy and had white creamy stuff all over them and tasted pretty nasty.  I wasted like half the package :(

 

I got a microwavable container and added my noodles and water and them stuck them in the microwave for 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.  What did I do wrong? Or do I just have to cook these noodles on a stove top?

 

I live in a dorm and we do have a stove, but all the pots are missing so I thought I'd try this.  Anybody have any ideas?


New Symptoms When Glutened?

18 August 2013 - 06:57 PM

I meant to post this topic ages ago when I was on vacation, but it totally slipped my mind until just now.

 

When I was going through my lovely glutening experience earlier this month I started to notice that my throat would feel kind of itchy immediately after eating something that contained gluten.  When I was on vacation I was extremely good at staying away from gluten, but I ended up getting contaminated by some Annie's cheddar bunnies that I thought were gluten free (even though it says ORGANIC WHEAT in big letters on the box *face palm*).  Immediately after eating the handful of bunnies, my throat seemed irritated and itchy.  I've never noticed that before.  

 

Anyone else have new symptoms just randomly pop up??


Tmi Topic: Poo Troubles

02 August 2013 - 06:45 PM

This is embarrassing, but I've looked all over google and have come up empty handed so I figured I'd throw this out there and see if anyone has any insight to my issue.

 

First off, if you read my other post not that long ago you will know that I was hardcore constipated last weekend.  It was awful and I'm glad it is behind me.  However, I'm not quite back to normal.  I am still drinking prune juice and taking Miralax on occasion because things seem to be pretty slow still.  I'm talking about slow for ME.  I usually go after every meal.  I know that once a day is totally okay, but I feel sluggish and bloated if that happens.

 

Today I noticed that my stool is lighter than normal.  You should keep in mind that my stool is usually never "brown" because it moves fairly swiftly through my body and thus it is usually a greenish shade.  This is still greenish brown, but much lighter than I'm used to.  I looked up lighter stool and it came back with liver and gallbladder issues, but I don't have any of the other symptoms.  It is also very loose, but that is normal for me.

 

And then the weirdest thing that happened today was that my stool smells like...blueberries.  It smells extremely sweet.  I looked that up too and couldn't find much.  Since there wasn't anything that basically said I was dying, I'm guessing I am okay, but what in the world causes sweet smelling stool????  Note: this was also my first major BM since last week before I was constipated.  Could that have anything to do with it?

 

I have been drinking prune juice (4oz) and had some grape juice (8oz) today.  I had Chex vanilla cereal this morning with milk, Annie's gluten free mac-n-cheese for lunch, and leftover mac-n-cheese with green beans and carrots for dinner.

 

I also saw on one site that the sweet smell could be from a lactose issue, but couldn't find anything to back that up.

 

Does anyone have any experience with this?  Should I go to the doctor?  I leave for TN this weekend so I wouldn't be able to see my doctor until over a week from now.


What's The Deal With Probiotics?

31 July 2013 - 02:10 PM

Since being on this site I've read a lot things about probiotics.  I feel silly and like I should already know this, but what are probiotics and why is it so important I take them?  I looked at walmart today at some they had there but there are so many choices.  How do you choose what probiotic to take?

 


Should I Eat Gluten?

28 July 2013 - 01:50 PM

I am constipated and have been for 2 days. I went out earlier today and bought myself some prune juice and drank a full glass of it. I am now suffering from diarrhea...if you can even call it that. It's basically water.
However, I can still feel that I am not totally empty when I try to go or when I sit down.
My parents suggested that I eat a few frosted mini wheats because they have been known to totally get my digestive system moving in the past.
Should I give it a shot? Or should I try something else?
