Bean salad

4 cans of assorted beans (chickpeas, green beans, kidney beans, black beans)

red onion

green pepper

Italian dressing

Rinse the beans. Chop the onion and pepper. Dump it all in a bowl and add dressing.

Cucumber salad

2 cucumbers peeled and sliced

1 sweet onion sliced

equal amount water and vinegar

sugar, salt, a pepper


The amounts vary according to the size of your produce. Try about 1/2 cup each vinegar and water to 1T sugar, 1t salt and 1/2 t pepper and liberal dill. Taste and adjust as needed.

Neither need to be kept cold and both improve on standing.

I like egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad. Tuna's easy, and I like my chicken salad with grapes. Tomato mozzarella is quick and easy. Or a sweet quinoa tabboule, follow the cooking directions but add a bunch of applesauce and some maple syrup to it while it boils.

Also, pasta salad with gluten-free pasta and LOTS of mayo & dressing, or else it dries out. Add cubed deli meat or tuna or peas or all of the above.

My new fav- raw corn salad

4 ears of corn, shuck and cut kernals off

3 large tomatoes diced

1 large cucumber, quartered and diced

diced avacado (optional)

Dressing-put all in blender and blend:

1/2 cup lime juice

1 tbs chili powder

1.5 tsp cumin

3 tbs olive oil

2 tsp salt

2 tsp honey

3 minced garlic cloves

1/3c fresh cilantro

1/2 c salsa

Toss all together. The longer you let the salad sit and marinate, the better it tastes! I could live on this stuff!!

Although it's probably too late today, here's an idea for another time.

Bag of lettuce

Canned chicken or precooked chicken of some sort

mandarin oranges

Sliced almonds (if you have time, cook them gently in a hot pan with a few spoonfuls of sugar and let cool once the sugar has melted)

Just about any vinaigrette dressing or a sweet one like poppyseed.

    Wow!  I can say thank you in Polish, but can not spell it.  This is a bit off topic, but I will post this here and then open a new topic.   A month or so ago, a guest commented on an article that Celiac.com had published.  The guest mentioned that she has been a celiac for decades, long before the gluten free craze.  She noticed that she is now getting more gluten exposures compared to the years when there were very few gluten free processed foods on the market.  Interesting. With
    The celiac tests are: TTG IgA TTG IgG DGP IgA DGP IgG  EMA IgA And....Immunogobulin A (IgA).  This test is used only as a control test when checking for celiac disease.  If your body is not producing enough IgA, the IgA celiac tests are invalid or will not work.    You would also have a immune deficiency issues too.  But that is a separate issue.   The previous link I gave you spells out the test names which are long!  😆
Guys, thanks so much for taking time out of your day to reply to me. I'm going to ask my doc for the test, she's super and I'm sure she will go for it. This whole thing has sure taken it's toll on me both mentally and physically the last couple of months... to be honest, I don't care if I have it or not, I just want to know what's going on
