Cold Cherry Soup (Gluten-Free)

Like the peach and the tomato, the cherry is another fruit that is nearly synonymous with summer. I can remember the summer joys of buying fresh-picked cherries from a roadside stand, and also going to visit my grandmother, where we picked cherries from the very generous tree in her back yard.

More recently, I was visiting family in Sonoma when a neighbor invited us over to help lighten his cherry tree. Memories like these that are all stirred up when I use cherries in dishes. This recipe uses sour cherries, lemon juice, sugar and yogurt to create a memorable and refreshing summer soup.

Last December, I was horribly sick. Suddenly, questioning gluten; I didn't eat any. The change was beyond enormous, and I could not ever bring myself to voluntarily eat it, again. It was as if I was finally, not being electrocuted! A nasty, blistering rash went away, at the same time. Now, I am ...

Same here. Our doctor told us that my daughter does not have celiac right after the endoscopy. We were overjoyed. 2 weeks later, they called and gave us the test results, and that she does have celiac. I would wait at least until the actual results before worry about next steps.

Peanut butter is always my breakfast when I want to stay full for a while. When I am in a rush, I just eat a spoon of peanut butter and a glass of milk with some fruit. When I have a bit more time, I make toast with peanut butter. Cereal doesn't keep me full in general. I know you said you ...

My GI said the same thing, but he warned me that we would have to wait for the pathologist's report. Guess what? The report showed moderate to severe patches of intestinal damage. So, hang in there and just wait for those results.

What sort of side effects did you have? I feel like I still have acid every morning, upset stomach, bloating, burping, and poor tolerance to most food.
