- 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.

yesterday i made my pie, finally.  sort of.  i used the canned pie filling (cherry) and my pie plate was ginormous for the amount of filling i had - i could just about turn the rest of the bottom crust over it to cover it.  so that's what i did.  like a rustic tart.  brushed it with egg was the last 10-15 min and sparkled it with turbinado sugar.  i also made the crust with unsalted butter instead of shortening and it tastes almost shortbread-y.

 

it turned out GREAT and i still has pie crust.  in the freezer.  i am invincible :P 

 

and i completely lied about what was for dinner last night.  forgot i had chili lef douvres and when i opened the friger it called my name.  in spanish (not really)

Lots of work and first harvests from the community garden has influenced the menu this week ---

 

Roasted radishes (who knew?!), indian carrot salad, and curried red mustard greens & kidney beans with jasmine rice. Getting in pink / purple carrots this week too!

She is adorable and now I want the carrots even more -- grandbaby girl LOVEs pink -- much to the chagrin of both myself and her Mom -- we are sporty chicks -- yep sounds better than TomBoy ;)

 

Although I must say I have  been enjoying all the fushia clothes I've added to the wardrobe to wear while in her presence....must find some pink carrots....and some seeds too!!!!

 

Adipose Tissue :wub:

 

I've seen Irish and L2T use that term but it finally sunk in -- off to cycle a bit of mine off :)

 

Oh Dinner is Breakfast -- found some nice looking fresh breakfast sausage so waffles and eggs with those for the men...encore chicken and parsnips for me -- lol parsnips are not the color I am looking for in my carrot shaped vegie today :ph34r:

Hey now, i love the color blue, so most of my stuff is that color.

 

Have you guys tried udi's pizza crusts? Are they any good?  I'm thinking about picking a package up and was wondering about it. I'd probably just put some cheese, olive oil, salt & pepper, and something else on it (no idea what).

I'm not really sure when it happened. I grew up obsessed with purple. Not just a little but enough that I had tantrums when we redid my bedroom when I was 6 and got a purple carpet. Then... somehow I migrated to pink. Maybe it is in part because I look terrible wearing purple. But, more than half of my shirts are pink. Even my sneakers are pink! If my husband is out shopping with me (and he usually is because I'm evil) he'll usually ask me if I want shirts in another color. I managed a blue and pink one last time instead of two different shades of pink. :lol:

 

I would totally eat pink food. Especially pink vegetables.

I wear hot pink regular now with jeans or royal blue -- the little bit's brother loves royal blue  -- my favorite color is green -- lucky for me it's my birthstone so i get to wear it around my neck with anything :)

I got boned on my birthstone. Garnet? Seriously? It is the color of old, dried, crusted blood. Ewwwww! My oldest daughter lucked out, December and her favorite color is blue.

SIL is garnet too and she feels ripped off!

 

My kids are two diamonds and one citrine -- makes an awesome mothers ring...I've got two clear cz eternity bands with a citrine cz band sandwiched in there -- hubs is under instruction to get me a real set - one of these days -- for now this set sparkles at me nicely.

I get to pick and choose for a ring, December and June. :D I either want a black pearl and turquoise or alexandrite and zircon. While I absolutely love the tanzanite, it would look terrible next to June's stones. Of course, I have to stop being poor too. A girl can dream.

 

For now I better shuffle off to the kitchen or the only dinner we're going to have are dreams instead of actual dinner!

 

ETA: pearls Shadow... pearls!!!

I wasn't skipping it, I simply have never tried them. I once had a Glutino brand frozen pizza. I do not recommend them, mostly because the crust sucked. The only other ready pizza crust I have ever had I order online from Venice bakery. Those I can not recommend enough! I am beyond excited for their new products to release.
