Instant Hamburger Buns

I was going to make hamburger Salad but recalled a mini burger receipe from a cook book I got from ketosummit. Modified slightly and made 2 regular size buns in 2 cup glass dishes. I have their permission to repost this. Today is also National Comfort Food Day....well not having ate a burger bun in 5 years I think this counts. (I made a extra bun and ate it mashed avocado) Makes 2 buns or 4 slider buns. 2/3 cup (70g) Almond Flour 1 tsp (4g) Baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 2 eggs 5 tbsp (7

December 2018

No real sales or income past few weeks, I did get a few early gifts. Dad got me a new bed set, OK this might not sound like much BUT I have been using the same blanket, sheets, etc for the past 10 years. ONE set. I just wash it every week and put it back on...the sheets were so worn you can see through them. My car, we still have not gotten the title...it is supposedly in the mail....so I have been a month again unable to legally drive my car.

Then the following. 2 cans greenbeans drained 8oz sliced mushrooms chopped rough 2tbsp Nutiva Butter Flavored Coconut oil 3 minced cloves garlic 1/2 cup chicken stock 1 can full fat coconut milk 1/4-1/2 cup nutritio

When all Else Fails: These Solved My Health Problems!

Sometimes the celiac diagnosis isn't the whole answer.  I don't want to confuse new people; it does take some months to recover, but if recovery takes more than a year, although you sense movement; I would most certainly start looking for other possible problems contributing to your symptoms. I have been there and believe I have conquered.  Here is my list of great helps: IGG/IgA sensitivity test:  This essentially helped me to be on the diet I use now as I stopped eating everything that I

Breaking Teeth

Welp.....with me it is one thing after another and my body....I was scraping my teeth on a almond and coconut Popsicle and one of the front incisors got hung and snapped in half.  Dentist is closed I made a cap over the part still in my gums with this tooth repair stuff and put the other half in a glass of water after rinsing it off well and have it in the fridge. WTF can lead to this kind of BS?

November Update

Bit late on this one, been busy with stuff and coming to terms with issues. First I have been dealing with and living with a almost daily Diarrhea and vomiting issue since my gluten exposure in July and again in August made it much worse. It started to clear up when I started taking more digestive enzymes (I was taking them daily anyway) So I did a bit of health hacking, I stopped digestive enzymes for a day...vomiting every time I tried to eat anything and very oily D.

FDA Requests Comments on New Consumer Survey about Allergens in Cosmetics

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is announcing today the opportunity to provide comment on a proposed web-based consumer survey about allergens in cosmetics. Cosmetics are a broad category that includes items such as fragrances, hair products, makeup, nail products, and skin care products. The survey will be the first on consumer perceptions of cosmetics that the FDA has conducted since 1975. The purpose of the survey is to collect information that will improve the FDA's current understandi

HELP!

I have celiac just like everyone else here but I also have a casein allergy, so no dairy allowed either.  I’m at such a loss when it comes to dinner! Any ideas?? Share recipes!

After a lifetime of celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis I have had the most difficult Summer ever. So I started with the pantry, where we have a side for me "Gluten Free". This can be good if someone does not put a box of gluten crackers on my side of the pantry, like a teenager!  I also reminded myself at the same time about Vinegar. Apple cider, distilled wine, balsamic are usually safe (I say usually because they can have added flavors, in which case the label should indicate that on

Vertigo spells lately

Hello, I recently had two Vertigo episodes. I am wondering if the s’mores with marshmallows is the culprit? Has anyone experienced Vertigo from hidden gluten? I am really sensitive to gluten and Casein. I was diagnosed in May 2017 and had an endoscopy in March, small intestine was found to be normal. Diagnosis “May have Celiac”. I do carry one gene. Both Neice and my other nieces daughter are gluten sensitive. Both parents are deceased so I don’t know the history. I hope to hear from you.

Finally Got Tested

I have been seeing doctors since April of this year. I finally got tested for celiacs on Tuesday; I'm still waiting to get the results. I have been sick everyday for the past 8 months. I get rashes all the time. I originally tried to take allergy medicine, but it doesn't help at all. The rashes are sooooooo itchy and even sometimes burn if they get bad enough. After I eat, I feel like I'm getting quick sharp stabs in my stomach. My joints hurt so bad. I feel like I can't even write anymore witho

Week 7 of gluten-free

Just like tracking the growth of a baby, I am now upping my tracking unit from days to weeks. I have learned a lot in this short time! The best thing we've done as a family is do gluten-free dinners. The cross-contamination in a family of five can drive me nutty, so it's best for me to stick to gluten-free family meals. For breakfast and lunch, on most days, everyone picks their own things and the gluten-free isn't as much of an issue. I have also decided to try to have a designated spot in the

Everything goes downhill....

So, mid march 2018 and I go on a family holiday away from home. I was now beggining to grow bored of my gluten free diet so what did I decide to do?.... be an idiot and eat gluten while we were on that  holiday! So I ate gluten every day and at first I felt okay... not too great but barely noticeable. Then i started to get more and more symptoms back but because I hadnt eaten anything glutenous in a while now I didnt want to stop again. Then end of april, I started to experience a flare of my as

The beginning

Last year in 2017 around October I decided to start a gluten free and dairy free diet because I had been feeling really ill when I ate gluten. It was hard because my friends all ate gluten (like a lot of people) and I had to watch them eat pizza and sandwhiches and cakes etc . I felt like I was really missing out and I hated that I couldnt eat all the foods I liked. Christmas day came and I had to eat gluten free ~still~ but I was annoyed at this because the rest of my family could eat whatever

Day 9 of gluten-free

I'm progressing nicely, but still hitting bumps along the way. Last night I went to a Japanese steakhouse and thought I made great choices until it dawned on me this morning that imitation crabmeat has wheat in it as a binder. I also tried a bite of seaweed salad and enjoyed every flavor until I realized it had soy sauce in the dressing. The rice paper was a nice alternative to a traditional wonton type wrapper. At the very least, a hard cider to drink was a safe move in the area of alcoholic be

Day 7 of gluten-free

Here I am a week into this lifestyle change and hoping I am on the right track. In general my digestive system feels better, but I seem to be constantly finding gluten hidden in things I wouldn't think of. Yesterday's discovery happened while reading the ingredients to an Italian dressing packet. I wouldn't have guessed that it would have wheat in it. Other learning curves are happening as I study labels, noticing where they clearly state "gluten free" and where I am left questioning the fo

    • Increased fasting numbers even in a low carb diet is common for a type 2 diabetic who is insulin resistant.   It is called Dawn Phenomenon.  If your post parandial numbers are over 200 or lower than 70 than you should consult a doctor to determine what kind of diabetic you might be.  You could be prediabetic eventually becoming insulin resistant and possibly developing TD2.  

      My neighbor recently had her pancreas removed due to cancer.  She must be on insulin and take enzymes to survive.  She instantly became a diabetic who MUST take insulin.  Your body needs glucose.  If you are Keto, it will still find a way to make glucose.  Too much protein and it turns to glucose.  

      The only way to determine if you are a TD1 or a TD2 is to get tested.  

      It sounds like your Ulcerative Colitis is flaring.

      If someone is diabetic they will need to take insulin in order to keep their blood sugar down. A high blood sugar level can cause damage to tissue and a wide variety of health problems. Nobody can live without insulin. 

      A doctor, if you have access to one, would be able to tell if you are prediabetic or recommend a treatment plan. 

      Yeah I did whole lot of research on it after this on the insulin and glucagon and how you can make glucagon the dominant hormone to have your body use fatty acids for fuel. BUT your liver will still be processing glycogen into glucose as a response to prevent glucose from tanking. All this time insulin is still needed for your bodies cells to utilize the glucose. 
      My pancreas we know is only getting 15% the nerve signals at the T7, I think it is just bogged down and I should keep to a prediabetic diet and taking enzymes to ease the burden on it. Maybe they can get better testing or a better treatment.

    Hello, new here and new to the whole thing! My husband has been battling this rash and assorted digestive issues for years. He was diagnosed with contact dermatitis by the dermatologist, had some steroid injections and various creams over the last couple of years, and then in November he went to the ER and they said eczema and gave him steroid pills. This was after a huge bloom that pretty much hit him from head to toe, where it had been mostly arms and legs before. He finally concluded he
    For making oven-roasted pototoes, I cannot recommend highly enough using chicken fat, duck fat or goose fat, for those who can find or have access to these fats.  Not only are they significantly unsaturated, being almost liquid at room temperature (unlike say lard), they are surprisingly light in texture and "feel", and overall quite healthy.  I carefully skim off and save ALL the rendered fat when I make chicken soup from organic chickens, to use in later dishes. Another perfect fat for th
Oh yes, that does sound good!  I've always been fine with potatoes, but just haven't eaten them all that frequently, and usually in a recipe that specifically needed or called for them.  But for the next few months, at least, I think I'll be using them much more. Not that I want to try to subsist mostly on carbs here, but I am also going to be using more sweet pototoes, and also trying to incorporate both plantains (cooking bananas) and yuca (cassava root) into my diet as well.  Both of the
