Pitstop change....

hubby over ruled i&o - well for him because he still can eat other places - stopping in Burbank for panda express for him - i&o for guys and I'm sticking with salmon and beef jerky.

Tomorrow night - HUGE pot of turkey soup - cooked "Ralph" in Tahoe and have been draggin' his poor frozen bones all over the flippin' state!

Bonus - soup feeds the army of teens coming to band practice - wait - somebody send me back north please ;)

Darling, I love you, but I have to ask- how is alfredo worth that?

No food is. I am trying to determine if it was some sort of fluke or if I really can't eat it. It is worth finding out because it is one of the hub's favorite meals. I want to make him happy, and he hates eating something he knows I love so much in front of me so he hasn't had it since the incident. I am hoping that whatever it was happens to be related somehow to the mac & cheese I had eaten the day before (or two days, I'm too lazy to go look it up right now) as I was never able to pinpoint a cause for my pain. I assure you, I am not 100% crazy!

Adelaide, that is so sweet of your husband :).

Plain but good here for dinner,, lamb steak, sweet potato, carrots, broccoli.

Colleen, hope you have had a good day x


- 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.

Thanks for the thoughts guys. Makes me feel good.

Just finished a hugh spinach and kale salad topped with egg, cheese, bacon, sunflower seeds and ranch dressing. My favorite thing in the world to eat.

Speaking of Alfredo, I remembered after I read it that I have chicken that I tucked into the freezer. Have my Thai rice noodles and Alfredo sauce. I'm set for tomorrow.


HAVE A SUPER SHINY DAY

GAH!! It is past 3 and I have no stinkin clue what is for dinner. I have a block of pepperjack from the dairy that I get my milk from. Worst case scenario I will be 100% lazy and make quesadillas.

The alfredo was almost successful. It didn't make me sick, apparently I have become sensitive not only to soy proteins but to soy oil and it made me lose my vision again. <_< Imitrex at bedtime and I am feeling hungover today. I guess I'll just have to resort to making my own sauce, which I don't have a problem with but sometimes I just like how handy it is to say hey, I have this jar laying around my cupboard and don't feel like cooking. Now I have to watch my tyramine for a few days and can't eat my new chocolate almond butter so I'm a little pissy but I did bring it on myself.

Love seeing all this lovin' here! :)

Tonight we're having part of Fish and Chips - I am making a yummy crispy chip batter (not frying but baking) and homemade tartar sauce with scores of capers. Oh, and mushy peas. But no fries or onion rings. Instead we are having a simple classic Caesar salad (with homemade dressing of course). So, I suppose we're being sorta British and sorta American tonight. We like to play games at our house. ^_^

Oh, you poor dear girl. Isn't it funny how we try to remain optimistic and hopeful that something will work? Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes it may later on. Be well soon, K? We all need you! :(

Feel better Addie and quesadillas are not lazy -- throw a little something on top and it looks gourmet :)

Turkey Soup as planned with many, many mini muffin tins of pamelas bread -- usually treat hubby to fresh french bread on turkey soup night -- but some family along with son's band is here -- do not trust all those gluten eaters to use care ;)

Pork chops smothered with apples and opinions over rice. Ginger carrots. So yummy!

I'm copying this for tomorrow night....and no bungee jumping for me - that snap would fry my circuits - landing in water is the only way to jump off a bridge - oh don't forget to wear tennies to break the water :)

I had half an onion in the fridge so I fried it up, added some stewed tomatoes and put it over rice to go with my quesadilla. I have been neglecting my veggies lately because I have been worn down so much. I haven't been as responsible as I should be about my veggies lately and I need to knock it off.

Bungee jumping is on my list of things to do one day. It looks like a blast! I don't do water on my face so jumping into water won't cut it for me. :P I'm not sure exactly what it is that makes me say I'll jump off a bridge but there is no way I would ever jump out of a perfectly good airplane. I guess I'm just wired funny.

It was downright cold in Florida this weekend. (Really, I swear.) I made red beans and rice yesterday and have chili in the crock pot for tomorrow.

Former boyfriend known as "other" smoked a chicken today. I stuck 1/2 a lime and an onion in it. Had that with smashed potatoes and really awful gravy with salad. He's lucky. (So am I.)

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Cornbread topped chicken pot pie for dinner tonight. Apparently my husband has wanted pot pie for about 2 years. but never told me so he is a happy individual tonight.

I find this highly amusing. Men are always complaining that we expect them to read our minds, yet can't just make the most simple requests of us!

Back from travels. Do not seem to have been hit...unless tomorrow I wake up and have trouble remembering how to make coffee cause

I'm gluten head stupid, so yaaay!

Went to the gym today for the first time since I was quite ill back in 2010. MAJOR victory for me..

When I am unable to walk or lift my arms tomorrow we'll see how excited I really am about it. :unsure:

Dinner tonight:

Burgers and sweet potato oven fries

(but I'll keep my opinions about those poor burgers to myself.)

Hey, welcome back buddy, you went to the gym? Well, I think I need some of that whole30 thing. Oh, wait, I already did. 2 people I haven't seen since before I started said how well I look today :)

Great news, really great. Isn't it great when you ache like a normal person, because you used some muscles to exercise?

Dinner was sloooow cooked beef, broccoli and carrots.
