1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

Homemade chicken and rice soup pulled from my stash in the freezer. And I have a loaf of banana bread in the oven, which smells so good (made with my favorite Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix).

Baked pork chops with Butternut squash/ Rutabaga mash

Ooh, I never thought of mashing butternut squash with rutabaga! Yum. I bet that's good! Thanks for sharing.

That sounds yummy! Care to share the recipe?

Sure :) I make mine in a 13x9 baking dish--it's actually more of a pizza casserole. You can take the "dough" ingredients and after mixing, spread it out in a greased traditional pizza pan for a more pizza-like dish.

About 3 cups of grated zucchini (squeeze out as much moisture as you can)

2 eggs

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoons sharp grated cheese--I use Pecorino-Romano

Combine these and put into a greased baking pan. Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes. (10 if using a pizza pan)

Remove from oven and top as desired. Our favorite is tomato sauce, sausage or pepperoni, sauteed green pepper, and more cheese.

Put back in oven and bake at 400 for about 30 minutes (20 if made in a pizza pan) or until browned and bubbly.

Oh I have seen something similar with cauiflower before for a low carb crust. Too bad I can't eat cheese. I wonder if this would work with vegan cheese or just with egg and zucchini. I love zucchini. Hmmm....I shall have to play with it sometime. I want to go back to a low carb diet eventually so I will keep this recipe in mind. thanks!

It's a very forgiving recipe. You could absolutely do it without cheese. I was dairy free for 6 years and during that time ate my pizza cheese-less. This would be good with just sauteed veggies and the tomato sauce. Actually now that I think about it, you could fool around with thinly sliced potatoes and spinach, etc.

Good luck! :D

Tonight we're having baked Maui Maui, brown rice and a salad of lettuce, mango, avocado, roma tomato and red onion slices. I just had all those things to use up and so I thought why not make a salad. I'm just going to use olive oil and a splash of lemon for dressing.

That's what I am having... first time posting here because I am not very creative... BBQ steak (it's a smokin 36 F outside.. time to break out the barby) and caesar salad... yum!


Anemia and IBS through my life

2005 Joint pain, exhaustion, general feeling of not being well 2006 Beginning of testing for everything but Celiac 2008 Bloating, more muscle stiffness, feeling sicker, more exhausted-testing 'normal' 2010 March insides begin to shut down, cough that won't go away 2010 June Colonoscopy, Endoscopy, biopsy - all show no problems

Self diagnosed gluten intolerant - went gluten free. Within 3 days feeling better.

After 5 days - insides began to move

Now - feel better than I have felt for 15 years (except when I gluten myself.. which I'm good at)
