June Update

Few issues at the market with another baker showing trying to sell gluten free, she also does gluten foods in the same kitchen so I ended up in big debate. She has Made in a kitchen that handles gluten, wheat on all her stuff...but since she showed up my sales have dropped by half. Leading to even more stressful life. LOL my only purpose for living is cooking for others that require gluten free...

Mind set Summary

First off, I am not depressed or suicidal just have a messed up perspective. I have enjoyed life for awhile recently without worry, and stress. I have this perspective, I have a infection that is getting worse, drugs do not stop it, and I can not get surgery due to money. So I life life to the best trying to bucket list on a budget knowing I could die any day when it spreads to lymph or blood...

May Updat

So I was also bidding on this nice impinger oven, I held the high bid by a miracle for almost 20 days, I also had a heated cabinet, a convection oven, and a nice deli case. See I was planning on doing sheet pan meals in the impinger and doing a gluten free/paleo meal delivery service and using the deli case in my bakery. Had customers lined up and everything. LAST 3 hours of that auction, bunch...

Worse Luck, Bad Freezers

So I have been needing some new freezers for my bakery, I won some nice merchandising freezers at a auction house for a going out of business sale. They are higan dias, nestle icecream upright window ones. Well this auction house had other freezers listed with "good for parts" these were listed as a working freezer. I got two of them less then $150 each. Got them in and bam both are dead...one...

Rant "It's Just a sandwhich"

As many know I run a small gluten free cottage bakery, on Main St. in a shared building with a store next door that I help out at to keep rent low that does machine work. Anyway one of the rules that came about for that store several years ago was NO gluten products allowed inside...this came about after a worker poisoned me....that is another story. Anyway this being market season and me having...

April Update

Had a scare few days ago, I thought I developed a almond intolerance, ended up being I can not eat raw almonds that I just chew and eat, roasted I can make into butter or chew and they turn into a "mud" that sinks, raw tend to turn into a floating gritty irritating paste that causes purging, almond flour is fine if baked or soaked over night before being used in a porridge. I am feeling more...

New Issue No Explanation

As I mentioned I had some random vomiting.....well fact is it has been happening since my gluten exposure back November. It was almost every night around the same time 3-5 hours after eating dinner. After my exposure last month it became more consistent almost every night same time....but it is not really like vomiting.....just burping up 2-8 mouthfuls averaging about 6 starts off with a slime...

March Update

SO still getting over a gluten issue....I was unaware I kept on glutening myself with my tooth brush....threw it out and the D finally stopped but not have rebound constipation lol. Few days it should be fine, but lesson learned. I have some inconsistencies with vomiting...unsure if due to constipation or a new intolerance...I suspected flax seed at first, but then had some and not, not sesame...

Ravings of a Gluten Free Baker

So diagnosed with celiac years ago, I opted to make the best of my cooking and culinary skills and start baking and doing chef jobs for others with these diet restrictions. This enabled me to better myself, help others, and PAY for this diet. I opened up a cottage home bakery, sold at farmers markets, and did local deliveries. This went on for several years, and I changed up my lines to grain...

Glutened Shared Facility Coconut

Worst of luck lol, I got some coconut chips, they said gluten free on the back but no certifications, I started snacking on them then felt that obvious tightening around my neck odd stomach, later puking, and I knew then. I took out the nima and tested the only new thing, and they came back positive for gluten. Thankfully I was given some glidenX stuff.... I think it works to some degree....I...

February Update

Weights still bouncing 130ish for 5' 10" (I lost a inch in the past year?! seems to be in my spine)...bit frustrating but a gluten exposure in December and a bad cold early January really messed with my immune system....damn thing brought back many intolerance issues, randomly going purge mode after some meals with no real pattern as to what is making it do it...like same meal, same prep, same...

January Update

Still got a few issues lingering from that glutening issue...onions are still off the menu...as are spices. SO my mexican rotation of cuisine is put off and sticking to Italian herbs and keeping it easy. I have learned a few new things diet wise. The whole "what floats on top of my stomach will be puked up later" concept has been applied with a new testing and setting method for my foods. Works...

Glutening recovery update

Well the D stopped finally...I have dropped 7 pounds in the past few weeks. I now have multiple intolerance issues back....garlic, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, red pepper, bell pepper, chicken stock, egg yolks, are all off the menu and cause vomiting again . Back to sweet nut based porridge for a few more weeks. Amusingly my nerve damage is something else. Christmas day, I was taking stuff out...

New Cake Idea

I am thinking of using my grain free keto bread recipe, with the "Cake" alteration where I add 2tbsp sweetener an 2tbsp butter flavored coconut oil then add 2 tsp of Red Velvet Cake extract/coloring. I was thinking spray the pan with coconut oil and dust it with Hershey Dark Cocoa then pour a 2x batch of the cake...

December 2017 update

Well, let us start with food issues, I tried meat again, I can digest them fine with pancreatic enzymes it seems the whole meat and fat issue was related to not having enough. BUT THERE is another issue, I started smelling bad.....like I started smelling when I sweat at night or did any kind of activity, I started to stink like a mix of ammonia and sulfur, like a dead rat in a pee soaked cage...

Thanksgiving changes and plans.

Well my idea of doing the broccoli dish with a mushroom duxelles flopped, seems the local mushrooms are still gluten contaminated Yes I tested them with a nima.....and stir fry mushrooms in the polar cans do not work so well with this version of the duxelles. SO what I am going to do is take my bacon seasonings mix and use it on some baked Brussels sprouts, Taking Brussels and cutting off the...

Chiropractor

So I saw a chiropractor today after noticing some nerve issues, neck pain and a spasm in my back. I talked them down on cost to a $35 xray and examination, and a $50 adjustment down from $257 and $65. So what I learned, I have a S shaped curvature to my spine that needs to be alignged, and I have osteoporosis in my neck . SO that is the issue with my neck pains.  I can not afford to get the proper ...

Enzymes

I have issues digesting foods, meats/animal fats, and certain other fats are a no. I just throw them up hours later, if it floats it will not break down and be puked up hours later, if it sinks as do nut butters, certain fats,  certain fish and crab, they tend to go through undigested in the stool. I tried HCL to increase my stomach acid strength but that was a huge, painful, burning flob. My ...

November Update

Getting over a almost 5 week flare of my UC, scared me at first as I thought it was gluten, but the blood stool, pain only on the outside edges of my abdomen, and only diarrhea tell me it is not gluten since I lack the neurological side effects, vomiting, and core gut pain.  Still not 100% sure on the source, I think it might have been some of the spices I started using .   On a side note I ...

Thoughts and Issues

Noticing some histamine/allergy issues to a few foods today I used to not have. Bit of sniffles and drainage caused by cherry flavored magnesium calm. Funny the orange does not bother me....but I know anything magno or peach flavor does this same thing if natural flavors used. But last time I was on the cherry rotation less then a month ago it did not bother me. Well they are in the same family...

October Update

First off weight is up 130-131lbs, I can see muscles building up, and I am talking to a fellow body building who is my "body goal" about his training method. I even managed to work with him and create him a Ketogenic dark chocolate cake and frosting recipe for him to use for his birthday. Took me a week and a ton of work but I did it and it said he might be making a video of him making it and...

September Update

Bit late, in a bit of irony as to recent conversations and a first for this. I recalled today was the day to rotate off flax seed and onto hemp seed. So I opened up a brand new canister of Jarrow Hemp, and loaded a bit into a test kit like I always do. NOW jarrow I have been using for over 6 years even before my celiac DIA. I have been testing it with EZ strips even before the Nima, reason is...
