Jammies it is.

Man, first I learn I weigh myself incorrectly,

then I learn I dress all wrong.

What's next?

DO NOT ANSWER THAT you WISE MONKEYS.....that was rhetorical!

I think SKILisa is calling it her " Holy crap, I'm awake! anniversary!" and it's cause for celebration (and I know she likes these emoticons) Have a wonderful celebration, Skidoodle.

Just wondering if we should update and consider onesies for winter instead of muumus? I am having cheese for dinner. Maybe I should have something with it, but that would be adding unnecessary extra calories.


- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Have wine. If you drink enough you won't remember and if you don't remember the calories don't count!

PS for Bunny - I like your taste in cabana boyz - I'll keep my eye out for the right candidates on the beaches - not a fan of the clone - but do think we can find a few to do your bidding.

And sometimes painful overacting. When I showed Rebel Without a Cause in my Themes in American Film course, I had to stifle my laughter at the back of the room. He was awfully cute though. 'Tis a shame he died so young..

Bunz, I also loved Paul Newman! My guy has blue eyes like that, but there's a lot to be said for Robert Redford, too.

Happy New Year's Eve, Everyone! (well, actually Happy New Year, Shroom--you're already "there" aren't you? assuming you are still in NZ right now?)

Best Wishes for a Healthy, Happy and Adventure-filled New Year to all.

xxoo

:D yes....but this just brings this convo back to our original thought.

If we all just lived in our cottages in the gluten-free compound, we'd be able to graze from house to house every day.

Yes - I'm just picturing cattle and sheep grazing on Switzerland meadows. Not so bad!


<p>Confirmed celiac disease February 2011 from biopsies. Strictly gluten free March 18 2011.Diagnosed with fibromyalgia April 13 2011.3 herniated discs, myofascial pain syndrome, IT band syndrome, 2 rotator cuff injuries - from an accident Dec. 07 - resulting in chronic pain ever since. Degenerative disc disease.Osteoarthritis in back and hips.Chronic insomnia mostly due to chronic pain.Aspartame free May 2011.

When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that everyone is blessed with good health and minimal worries.

Tonight we are heading to my mom's where we always have snacky type food. I made bacon stuffed mushrooms and chicken cheese quesadillas. I know my mom found Udi's pepperoni pizza and she usually makes taco dip, hot spinach and artichoke dip, broccoli dip with potato rounds. There is always usually chicken wings and mini hot dogs, plus other stuff that I can't even think of right now. I will also be bringing myself a Zevia root beer so I have something bubbly to toast with while everyone else has their sparkling cider.

Last night's dinner was " Experimental Snack Night":

Bacon jam

Potato snowballs ( mashed potatoes around a piece of moz or cheddar, coated in bread crumbs and baked"

Mozzarella " sticks" ( spray mini muffing pan with a good coating of olive oil, breadcrumbs, cheese cube, cover with more bread crumbs & spritz of olive oil)

Champagne Cheddar spread

Apples, against the Grain baguette, assorted gluten-free crackers, encore cheese sliced

Verdict:

J didn't care for any of it except the left- over cheese and apples

M liked it all except he wouldn't try the RBJ

hub & I liked it all. He was surprised how much he like the RBJ. The potato balls were a bit bland. The recipe doesn't call for seasoning the potatoes. However, RBJ on top gives them a great flavor. Maybe put it in the middle and season the potatoes with salt, garlic powder, etc.

Put some RBj in the freezer, hope it freezes well.

Tonight: pizza

Trying to make a sourdough crust. Might put a bit of the RBJ on one pizza.
