So, What's The Worst Complication?

Recommended Posts

Guest CD_Surviver
Sure!  :D

Chili

2 cans Heinz beans in tomato sauce

2 cans Heinz Chili style Kidney beans, rinse beans before putting them in.

1 can Hunts-Wesson tomato sauce

1 large can tomatoes

1 small box Imagine Tomato soup (if you can’t find this, just add extra tomato sauce)

Extra lean hamburger

Veggies (e.g green/red pepper, green/yellow onion, corn, garlic)

2-4 Tablespoons Chili powder, McCormick or Club house

Cook hamburger and veggies together until done. I recommend coking the meat for awhile first and then adding the veggies. Add everything in a big pot and heat.

Thank You so much it sounds really good.

breakfast can be easy... it's the most important meal of the day.

Some of my fave breakfasts...

Kinnikinick Bread with slice of American Cheese toasted in a toaster oven.

Quaker instant grits, you can add just about anything too them. Cheese, Bacon, Ham, Fruit Preserves

Corn Thins with Peanut Butter on them with a banana

Kinnickinick english muffins with scrambled egg and cheese and ham or bacon (you can make these ahead of time and freeze and just pop in the microwave wrapped in a paper towel for a minute or two)

Cold Cereal with honey and cut up bananas in whatever milk beverage you like

Fruit smoothies with added yogurt for extra oomph

leftover gluten free pizza!!!! (I make big Chebe bread pizzas and freeze the leftover slices)

Enjoy Life Foods has new cereal bars that are really good IMHO, they taste like cookies. I can eat two of them, keep my calories under 300 and feel fulfilled!

Plus, I believe Kid Rock's sidekick, Joe C. died of complications due to celiac disease.

Oh my God, reading this link has scared the poop out of me. My son's biopsy came back negative. We are still working to find the culprit to his problems, more than likely gluten intolorant in my humble opinion. He has been going through the same type of vomitting episodes that Brian Adair had.

Should I request another biopsy? Could the first biopsy have been a false negative. I am panicking now.

Sometimes they can miss the damage in the intestine since the damage can be sporatic. Did your son have blood tests or a gene test?

If you felt a vegan diet was best for your child...would you wait for approval? You have neg test results... That doesn't mean you're not allowed to put your child on a gluten free diet, proclaim him gluten sensitive, threaten all who would not take his gluten-free diet seriously, and wait on the medical community to come up with a diagnositic test that will test without gluten in the body... It could happen someday in the future. Or, your son can grow-up and decide to try the gluten himself. I don't have celiac disease, I tested neg for everything....and yet, I went gluten free. Have you read Dangerous Grains? It's a good arguement against gluten grains in any diet. Also, after some months being gluten free, I've experienced unpleasant episodes when I've indulged in a bit of favorite gluten foods.... WHY IS THAT???? I was not happy to have to admit it. I liked being allowed to have gluten occasionaly. <_< But the stuff bothered me. There are plenty of plausible reasons for removing gluten from the diet of a person who comes up negative for celiac disease.

Yes. Definitely think outside the box for breakfast. I always used to have leftovers from the night before for breakfast. But since I got married, there really aren't any leftovers. The only time I ever have "breakfast food" is if we go out for breakfast. My daughter eats a PB&J or peanut butter and crackers and cereal bars because she doesn't like eggs and she doesn't like bready breakfast foods like pancakes or cereal.

I really like the idea of chicken salad for breakfast. Roll that in some romaine lettuce and you've got a portable gluten-free breakfast. Yum!

I've also always liked peanut butter on apple slices, especially chunky peanut butter. Seriously. If you haven't tried it, you don't know what you're missing... Apple has a lot of bulk too, so it fills you up, and you've got a little bit of protein from the peanut butter. And if you like bananas, bananas and peanut butter is good too.

PS - Thanks everybody for all your good thoughts for me. I really appreciate them. For some reason this year I'm really looking forward to Christmas. So I'm enjoying that fact. We've also got my husband's brother (who just got back from Iraq) and his wife and kids coming to town for Christmas. I just love his wife and we're really looking forward to spending the holidays together with all the kids. So there's going to be a lot of distraction and fun. :)

Just a word of warning, if you're sensitive to casein - and many gluten sensitive folks are - whey protein powder isn't a good idea. I found that out the hard way.

Biopsy's CANT NOT BE NEGATIVE. We really need to hammer this home with everyone, a Biopsy for celiac disease is NEVER EVER negative, its only NON-POSTIVE. Thats a HUGE difference. Biospy can never ever rule OUT celiac disease, only rule it in.

Again, a POSTIVE Biospy means you have celiac disease with out question. A non-postive bipsopy means nothing other then the spot(s) they looked at did not show any damage that would be typical of celiac disease. THat does not mean there is not damage else where, just there was not where they looked.

True. Alternatives include soy protein powder, rice protein powder, and pea protein powder. (The rice one actually doesn't affect the taste too much at all.)
