Talk About Ironic

Recommended Posts

So this morning I was on the train and my tummy started growling for food. My stomach has been a bit tempramental the last couple of weeks so yesterday I got a banana for breakfast which kept it nice and calm all day so I figured I'd do the same today. As I was thinking about the banana I was going to get on my way to work I started to remember one of my favorite comfort foods pre dx and the absolute irony of it. A banana sandwich!

I used to love these and when my stomach was acting up I thought this was a good treat. I kinda started laughing to myself when I thought of it this morning because well yeah the banana was great but I was eating it on 2 pieces of white bread - lol!!

Just thought it was a amusing story to share. ;)

Jillian--Thats so funny--I used to love to toast 2 slices of Pepperidge Farm White Bread, spread them with peanut butter, slice a banana and make a sandwich! Talk about setting yourself up for the day :P . I have since done this with rice bread--not too bad.

A friend of mine used to love banana sandwiches with mayonnaise. That is a disease unto itself.

I use to take a banana mash it up with a tiny bit of sugar and put that on my toast. What we have been doing to ourselves for years is something when you stop and think about it. All the so called comfort foods are gone for me it seems.

You can still have that toast. The kinnikinnick white sandwich bread is a lot like peppridge farms white bread. It toasts great. A link to Kinnikinnick is below.

Me too! Honey wheat was always my favorite. Or whole wheat. I havent bought bread b/c i havent found one i love yet but i now eat this "sandwich" on frozen waffles (i like vans). Ill defrost the waffle and put peanut butter, honey and sliced banana on it -YUM!

As to the "comfort food" thing, this is the most ironic thing for me about celiacs- all i ate was whole wheat everything- bagels, bread, pretzels, EVERYTHING! I would say whole wheat comprised 85% of my diet!!!

My comfort food was always toast or english muffins. :rolleyes:

And when I went to the GI and told her I thought I might have Celiac Disease, she told me I didn't, it was IBS and I needed to increase my fiber intake preferably in the form of All Bran wheat cereal! Yeah right! :blink:

I've only known I have celiac for 3 weeks - so I'm new at this. I ate a hot pretzel for lunch everyday...Oh how I miss them!

Too funny, Packard :lol:

I was almost exactly like Stef - pre-diagnosis my body craved comfort foods that were, quite literally, poison for me. I always thought that was odd because so many people who have Celiac say that pre-diagnosis they naturally preferred gluten-free foods. Definitely not me! If I only I knew then, what I know now....

Lol, it's nice to know that there are others like me. Before all of this meat veggies and fruit were to go with my gluten carb, Pasta and breads were my comfert food and dinner was usually something made with a cream of soup, and/or had a dinner bread. Although the Kinnikinnik bread is ok, it just doesn't work for my comfort food: PB & J on Wonder bread. I want one so bad my mouth is watering. :rolleyes:

I used to love peanut butter and butter on toasted whole wheat bread. It is funny that I don't even crave this stuff anymore after being gluten free for a while. I normally don't even buy gluten free bread anymore.

LOL this thread is making me laugh. I had the same "you have IBS - eat more whole wheat" thing too, but I decided to go to the specialist anyway, and I had celiac, just like I thought.

I always used to eat lots of saltine crackers when my stomach got upset - yipes, poison! Still kind of funny to me that all of the "this will make you feel better" foods were all making things worse.
