Then Last Item With Gluten You Ate...

Recommended Posts

The last gluten meal I had was the day before the biopsy. It was some pasta dish at a restaurant.

Before i was diagnosed with celiac disease my doctor had me on a bland diet anyway, so i didnt get to have a last hurrah really. I think the last thing i had was Orange Chicken from Panda Express.

If i would have known i would have to be gluten-free, i would have made it a philly cheesesteak with a side of pancakes or something extravagent.

Because it is about the same size and shape as an elephant ear hence the name.

I guess I don't miss them because I didn't know what they were, but they sound really good! :D

How about what we miss the most? I suppose I miss pasta with alfredo sauce! Unless I want sweets, then ot would be an apple fritter! :rolleyes:

I guess I maybe shouldn't talk since I just off a cheating binge, but I always miss the food I eat at my favorite Italian restaurant. Their salad is the best, I love the bread and oil, and I LOVE their ravioli (I may have to find out the ingredients to their salad).

I was diagnosed (100% for sure, figured much earlier) on Christmas Eve 2003! I had told myself way back in April when I had positive blood work and then again in October when I had my biopsy that if I did have celiac disease I would wait until the New Year to go gluten-free. See I didn't feel that I had many symptoms and figured a few more months (after October) would make a whole lot of difference and it would get me through the busy holiday season! <_<

So with my final dx for Christmas... nice gift... :( I continued to enjoy my beer and plan my final days as a full fledged NON celiac! My husband's daughter and her two boys were coming after Christmas so I planned all my favourites! It was a very busy day at work so I got McDonalds for Ron and I at lunch. Yes, it was my last McD burger! Dinner that night was roast beef with "real" gravy, Yorkshire Pudding and the works. Angel Food cake with strawberries and whipped cream for desert. Kind of like being on death row and having your last meal... :blink:

And of course there was beer to go with it! :lol:

Well the next day had me in the hospital, not knowing which end of me was going to explode first! :blink: I swore I had food poisoning (which of course I did! <_< ) because when I ate my McD's burger, I had noticed a cold spot in it... :o of course I had already swallowed by the time I clued in. Ron figured I had just over done the gluten and the doctor agreed. I didn't eat much of anything for the next few days...

My last intentional gluten would have been New Years Eve 2003, I had beer and my favourite Szechuan (sp?) Chicken at The Diplomat. We haven't eaten there since I went gluten-free... :( They won't make that meal gluten-free and I just don't know what else is worth going there for. <_<

I've read many of your posts that "it wasn't as good as I remembered"... I'm surprised at the number of people who admit cheating on the diet! :o:lol: I've had enough accidentals that leave me feeling crappy I wouldn't dare do it intentionally.

I'll complain to Ron at times if I feel constipated, his reply is usually "have a piece of toast"! Funny man! <_< My response is that if I'm going to intentionally glutenate myself, I'll have a beer thanks! :lol:

Interesting thread! :D

An elephant ear is a greasy, fried, blob of bread, covered with cinnamon sugar. Sounds really icky, tastes really good; wouldn't miss a fair without one before this...

Well, before I found out that I had Celiac, I knew that I was allergic to casein. Back in those days, I would occasionally cheat, and the last time that I did, is easy to remember because I got Sooooo sick! :( I had gone to a 40th birthday party for one of my huband's co-workers and it was at a Mexican restaurant. I had a tostada that was absolutely loaded with cheese and sour cream...total insanity! The brief enjoyment was definitely not worth 2 months recovering from an ear infection that made me miss some work because I was too dizzy to stand.

So, when it comes to Celiac, I know from experience that there's a price to pay for cheating, and nothing can tempt me. There are plenty of other good things to eat! :D

Ahhh... Elephant ears rock! Crispy, yet chewy, covered with so much sugar you have to wipe your face and hands after every bite. I ate a whole one of those last summer, by myself...

Isn't it amazing how much food plays a part in our lives, and you really don't notice until you have to go without the good stuff? Gosh I used to eat everything and anything...which probably wasn't a good thing. Oh, well, I can honestly saying that being gluten-free forces me to eat healthier, and that is a plus.

:wub: <~~cuz my daughter says so.

Beer and Cookie dough ice cream for an endoscopy-a little too much of both.

Sometimes when I 'm really bored in class and in the mood to torture myself, I'll make a list of all my favorite foods that I'll eat one of these days when we're cured.


Eat, drink, and be merry!

Chocolate chip cookie dough, raw eggs and all, :P is probably the only gluten containing thing I sort of miss.

It was a Penguin biscuit (like a coated bourbon) handed out to the churchyard clearing team I was on. That's what brought it all to a head and precipitated my going gluten-free as well as wheat free.

Mine was a vegan oatmeal cookie at Wild Oats. Mmm... it was yummy. It's wasn't *that* yummy though because I was kinda full from just eating a vegan chocolate chip cookie ;)
