Chilled Avocado and Tomato Soup (Gluten-Free)

For the purposes of this recipe, it is important to remember that the avocado and the tomato are both fruits. A curious fact to some, simple knowledge for many. Hot summer days mean a steady of flow of delicious tomatoes and luscious avocados. Finding new ways to use both can make for a delightful culinary adventure. One way that's old hat to many gourmets, but new to me, is to turn them into a delicious, refreshing chilled soup. The result is nothing short of an homage to the marriage of two of summer's most storied fruits.

Funny though, my brother and I were just discussing this. He has celiac and both his son and him are gene positive. Both were TTG/EMA negative but never tested for DGP. My brother had damage on endoscopy. They have not scoped his son. He feels his son is symptomatic but not his daughter. I ...

Just saying her TTg was 0 & her IgA was 27 doesn't tell us anything. Every lab can have different values so we need the reference ranges not just the results. Can you look back at the lab report & get those & post them please? Did they tell you she MUST be eating gluten every single day unti...

When the doc did the endoscopy, did he take biopsies? How many? From what locations? Get your records!!!! If he didn't take biopsies for celiac disease then he can NOT say you don't have it. 99% of the time, villi damage can not be SEEN by the GI doc during the endoscopy. And yes, the doc has no ...
