IH is down for the count. Bad, bad neck and back pain and a high histamine response going on.

I know waaa, waaa

Sorry you found out the "gluten bites you back" thinger, love 2. Like you need more celiac symptoms. <_<

Okay, I am forcing myself to make

bison meatloaf and sweet potatoes.

Not very hungry.....

Hey love2, sorry you got hit, glad you found a bright side. If it is any consolation I managed to eat 3 wholemeal bread rolls, even after commenting that it was remarkable how much like real bread. Someone had left the wheat ones in the freefrom section. Doh. Good healing :)


- 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.

Oh Bummer!!! So sorry you got bit L2T -- it happens -- glad you are looking at the rainbow peeking out of the whole deal.

Feel better everyone....

Irish, Addie, L2T - am I forgetting someone? and this poor server - my miscellaneous digital devices are not happy with the flip -- this too shall pass.

WTH?! Is it like some mass thing going around making people feel bad? I feel like hell, but I guess I can say that I'm fortunate that is only general female hell. And then the milk tank at the dairy broke. And the store is completely out of safe milk for me. Which is my sole consolation. WAAAAA!!!!

We could have a regular pity party going here. I'll bring the cheesebread!

Good news. Our inversion is over, or starting to be over today. My eyes don't burn nearly so much. I can feel the air getting better. Woohoo! It has been about 2 weeks of crappy air and constant burning eyes. I hate winter. <_<

These look delicious -- can't wait to get a bunch of the ingredients back to try them -- thought you might like to if you can do bananas and citrus, etc.

Yikes!! Sounds like it :(. Hope everyone feels better soon. LT, bummer that you are a reactor-- that really sucks. Seems like no matter how long we're at it, all it takes is one tiny oversight and bam. Ugh.

Having grilled steak, smashed spuds, and succotash. Chilly here but my husband braved it to do the steak outside:)

I still can't get the forum on my laptop.

Ok, there is nowhere near enough activity here to entertain someone stuck home

with the flu. The annoying thing (or nice! depending how you look at it) is that I'm

really not very ill, has been very mild, I just don't want to go anywhere and spread

my flu germs around, you know?

Also, has anyone else ever had the flu start with just a cough, then morph into the

really swollen throat, then the stuffy sinuses? Isn't that weeeiiiirrd? Haha, coughs

gone already too. Also no sore throat. Strangest flu I ever had....

Bunnie, sorry you have the flu. On the upside I'm feeling far better today! Not that that helps you... :wacko: My mom has had her chest cold for over three weeks. She just cannot seem to get over it! There are indeed some nasties going around.

Hmmm...how shall I entertain thee? I couldn't access the site today until now. Read any good books lately?

Went for my usual daily walk through the park. It is -25C so quite chilly but when you bundle up you scarcely feel the cold. Or maybe I'm just insane. :ph34r: Er...no comments.

My husband got me a transformer tablet for Christmas which has been entertaining me. You know what I used to think? That those playing games on their i-phones and i-pads were a bit...um...boring. For some reason I thought the games were all sort of metallic guy running-from-cops games. WAS I WRONG! I've solved mysteries, found interesting objects in rooms and am finding my way through all sorts of doors and gates by using my noggin. What is happening to me???? :huh:

It's interesting, alright. I've been sooooo curious about my reacting if I had gluten after so long just because I never felt sick in my life from gluten before. I loved gluten. I loved my gluten challenge. But it is sort of a good thing to know now.

Your dinner sounds yum!

I'm doing pork ribs that have first been rubbed with a paprika, brown sugar, etc. blend then slowly roasted for many hours. They are falling off the bone! Basting them with lashings of my homemade chipotle maple barbecue sauce. I'll do sweet potato fries with a roasted cumin lime theme. And creamy coleslaw. Sounds kinda summer barbecue-ish which is nice because I am getting tired of sooooo much cold and soooooo much snow. It is -25 at the moment. Oh, well. Kills the creepy crawlies! ^_^

Though I would much rather have those ribs, I will be having white pizza with gobs of ricotta whilst the guys get Dominios. Actually been looking forward to it all day :)

It was milder today -- high 50's -- but rainy. Supposed to be a nice weekend. Hoping to open the windows for a little while to "change the air" as my MIL says.

There is nothing wrong with pizza. it is so homey and comforting and so darned good!

We could not open our windows even if we wanted to. It is so cold that there is thick ice on the inside of our windows (and we live in a relatively new house). They are stuck that way until spring thaw in April. :(

I hope to open the door this weekend, too for some fresh air ----they claim it may hit 50.

Well, I tried to "entertain" all of you via email.....if I missed anyone, I beg your forgiveness. I could not get that to post here.

(maybe he was too hot?) Sora and Love2 --he can melt the snow.

Hubs is having the same as Patti!

White pizza. I am having bison meatloaf and sweet potato encores.

This no dairy thing is wearing realllllllly thin..... <_<

Forgot to defrost - some sort of pork is trying now - but I think pizza may just make everyone smile a bit brighter tonight - I just decided - reg gluten-free pizza for the men and im going to try a paleo flat bread version...now Im smiling too -- basil "pesto" pork pizza for me!

We are used to cold because we visit it regularly - but had to take long undies to my Mom today and there was a couple walking down at the bay that looked ready to traverse the artic tundra!

That's the way our bathroom window was in Bavaria :blink: How'd that ice get on the inside??? of double windows?? Of course, we had three months when the temp never rose about 0 (F), and most of the time it was -30. Fountains were all frozen in mid air, trees had icicles all winter, and the lens on our camera froze :rolleyes: when we went out to take pics of the Main River (you know, that one that carries the barges that carry the heating oil) frozen solid.

I figured out the problem with my apple "cheese" bread and it not puffing. I used egg replacer. Apparently it needs real eggs. Tried again tonight and have puffy apple sage little puffballs with pork.

We almost had pizza, but then I dragged my husband out of the house to go looking again for the new Living Without. I found it and also indulged in an entire pound of Lebanon bologna. I grew up calling it monkey meat and it just tastes like childhood to me. I can't wait to have a sandwich for lunch. If I don't have one for breakfast.
