That is so cool, Alex, she's learning how to read, how to cook, and she's a mere five years old. :)

Thanks! She is in the kitchen with us all the time. We are really big on cooking in our family, my husband and I both love to cook and I was on my way to culinary school before we started our family.

It turned out that I am not the one making the cake tonight, my 5 year old wanted to try and read the recipe and make it for her daddy. I think it's kind of funny that she is learning to read by reading recipes.

That is awesome that she is doing that--- and that you guys are encouraging her to do so!! I wish I had been more involved in cooking when I was a kid.

Tonight I had-

GlutenFreeda beef & potato burrito, w/ cheese on top, and dipped it all in catsup :), and some brocooli & cualiflour, again with cheese :)

Italian style fish with pasta. It's a very quick dish with a simple tomato-and-herb-sauce.

You cook gluten-free penne, put a slice of baked panga fillet on top of it and cover it with stir-fried Italian vegetables in a tomato sauce. Dinner in 15 minutes :)

She did really well on the cake :) She was so proud that she made it (mostly) by herself for her daddy and that she had even come up with the egg substitution by herself. The best part was that even with no eggs it solidified for her and had the consistency of pumpkin pie.

I actually DID think of you while I was making it as I know you can no longer have it! :angry:

The reason I made it today yet again is because my husband loves taking it to work for lunches. He loves creamy soups, especially in winter.

I actually made myself a cup-of-soup (Maggi creamy chicken) that was gluten free for lunch today because it was raining. And it was goooood!

My DP came home tonight, and it was a 3 1/2 hour (roundtrip) drive to collect him from the airport. I made corned beef brisket with potatoes, carrots and onion in the crock pot.

He hadn't had anything since breakfast (and that was a donut and coffee), so he was thrilled with dinner (and being home, first decent meal he'd had other than hospital or fast food. We had toasted cheese breadsticks too (separate thread I started regarding Chebes)

He said he'd love having that meal every week, I'm thinkining once a month would be okay. B)

DP smoked a picnic ham today. It was on sale for $1.07 per pound. This cut of meat is frequently on sale because it isn't a popular cut of meat. You can slow cook, pressure cook or bake it. DP loves to smoke while the football games are on.

We didn't use a rub or sauce, just rubbed salt and pepper on it last night after scoring the fat layer and rinsing it in organic apple cider vinegar.

So dinner was pulled pork with carmelized onions on homemade buns, mashed potatos and homemade applesauce. I made salad but never got around to that.

It was possibly the most delicious meal I've had since going gluten-free.

Can't wait to make the bean or pea soup with the bone. And I have cracklin to make corn bread, just need to find a gluten-free recipe! I'm still a wee leery of corn, but if you have cracklin... :D you just must make cracklin corn bread.

(There goes my beautiful cholesterol level!) :lol:

Tonight I eat alone, because my boyfriend has a midwinter celebration. His games club will play boardgames from sun down today (4:30 pm) to sun up tomorrow (8:30 am).

This is one of the rare occasions that I'll eat a microwave dinner. I'm having kale stamppot with rookworst today.

Yum, sounds delicious!

After Christmas I'm cooking a light meal tonight. Baked rice with egg and leek and chicken satay.

Yesterday we celebrated Christmas at my boyfriend's parents. We used a table grill yesterday. We had all kinds of veggies, fresh meat, chicken and fish which you could grill for youself. It was fun, delicious and gluten-free! I can't express how grateful I am that they understand my diet and are so supportive :D

That is awesome! Communal grilling is a lot of fun. Both mine and my husband's family are so understanding like yours - it makes a tremendous difference to have all that support.

Some leftover Chinese take-away from yesterday: chop suey with beef and white rice. Very mysterious: everytime I can't cook there's fast food on the table. You'd almost think my BF doesn't like to cook :P

I'm quite happy with our local chinese restaurant: they know exactly what's gluten-free. When I asked about gluten-free dishes they gave me the menu and underlined everything I could eat. The waitress also said I couldn't have their curry soup, because it contained coconut. I was surprised and said that coconut is gluten-free. She then told me that their dried coconut has flour in it to prevent it from sticking. Now that's someone who's well-informed :D I've given them a very good recommendation in the Dutch gluten-free restaurant database.

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
