My wife has Celiacs. She was diagnoised 5 years ago. Last year she started to have seaver lower right quadrant pain. she went to the gastro that diagnced her. he did a colonocopy and found that she had a cycset in her colon. it was removed but that did not relive her pain. So he refered her to a doctor at Virginia Mason in Seattle. well that guy did 3 colonocopys 2 indocoopys. a time trnasit study, that camera pill study, a doulble ballon Coloncopy, 3 CT sacans . After all that. all he could say was good luck!!! So now we are looikg for a good Gastro. Sorry for the spelling.

By Ennis_TX in Daily Life and CompromisingSo I had my follow up appointment with my new GI to go over my pathology report. There are no signs of celiac or UC, he said there were no medications he needed to prescribe and that my treatment regime was working great. He suggested my random digestive issues could be a new sensitivity or a intolerance or even hormone related like with insulin.
He was quite surprised with the UC healing without RX and even had to get my old records from the GI that diagnosed it. >.< I was sort of hoping I could get a cannabis RX for it, but I guess I will keep just living on hemp and cbd for my other issues.
By Ennis_TX in Gluten Free and Specialty Diet RecipesI often suggest making crustless quiches to people, here is one of the base recipes I have used.
10 Slices of Turkey Bacon, Cooked and chopped (I did a mix of crispy and chewy cooked)
1lb bag of frozen spinach thawed and squeezed of excess water (Take a tiny bit of a corner off thaw in the sink and squeeze water out the corner)
1/4 onion sliced very thin (mandolin helps)
6 large Eggs
3/4 cup Almond or Coconut Milk
8oz Shredded Dairy Free Cheese of Choice (I used Lisanatti Almond Cheddar)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
pinch of nutmeg
1. Preheat Oven to 350F And line a 8x8 Pan with Parchment paper
2. If not done cook and chop bacon, thinly slice the onions, and grate the cheese
3. Combine everything in one large bowl, mixing well, and scrape with a spatula into the pan.
4. Bake in the oven for 40 mins makes 4 extra large servings or 6 medium
You can make this in advance and reheat and eat for breakfast in the morning quick. This is a base recipe, feel free to add peppers or other seasonings to it. I did make this really simple and found it works without any advanced cooking like sauteing stuff prior (although that adds much better flavor)
By Ennis_TX in Gluten Free and Specialty Diet Recipes2 weeks of working on it and I got the recipe down, just featured them at a farmers market and sold out.
Makes 10 4" bagels. in grams, so you can half or quarter the recipe.
3 Cups (360g) Almond Flour
1/2 Cup (56g) Flax Meal
2 tbsp (14g) Coconut Flour
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup (60ml) Apple Cider Vinegar
2-3tbsp Everything Bagel Seasoning (optional sprinkle a bit on top before baking)

2. In a large food processor pulse your dry ingredients (Almond Flour, Flax Meal, Coconut Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt)
3. Add in your Eggs and Vinegar and mix well.
4. If your quick you can pour it into the molds or have to use a spatula, I fill 4" molds about 1/8" from the top
5. Bake in the oven for 25 mins, let set in the mold for 20-30mins before removing and setting on a wire rack. They can be kept on a counter for 2-4 days or longer in the fridge, Freeze well too.
