Tonight!! :) Spaghetti!! I will find a gluten free sauce! :) probably pay way to much!! I usually make my own but Know I don't have any left pfftt!! So I will pay the price! I bought some gluten free noodles the other day :) We will see!! I will cook hubbs some regular noodles :) Have a great day everyone! :)

Hon, the vast majority of bottled spaghetti sauce is gluten free as far as I know. It's tomatoes, basil, oregano.

Classico, Newman's Own,  etc.  Just look at the ingredient list and if you do not see wheat listed, you're good.

 

 

Still flagging a bit here so I am KISS.

 

Turkey burgers, roasted asparagus, mixed fruit salad.

 

Note to self:

Hullo? your body views some things as foreign invaders.

Antibiotics and vaccines make you really sick.

therefore, stop doing things that cause you to 

have to put that crap in your clean and for-once-in-your-life healthy body....CHECK!  ;)

 I suppose I should be grateful it is defending me so vigorously??. LOL

 

 

Addy was also telling you this at the same time I was. Did not mean to "double team" you.   :)

 

PS. The heck with making two kinds of pasta. Make the gluten-free for everyone. No one can tell, I serve it to WE's all the time and they love it.

It's a "mental thing"--people think it's going to taste like crap.

Corn pasta is served in fine Italian restaurants and no one says a disparaging word. 

Start making your life easier and your chances of CC lower.

We like Newman's own marinara but most are gluten-free.  It about $2 at target or Walmart and close to $4 at the grocery. There might be one that has wheat, but I haven't found it.

 

I found its too hard to make both gluten-free and regular pasta at once.  Trying to keep the spoons separate, the colanders separate....it was too much work and anxiety.  We all just eat the gluten-free pasta.  no one cares.

Addy, am not forgetting to post ketchup recipes for you. Am finding this heat debilitating. All I do is a struggle. It is 40C or 104F (with humidex). Feeding Bingley ice cubes and keeping myself hydrated. How do people cope with this? It is dreadful and we have no A/C.


<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.

I didn't read the label!! It was some off brand.... I assume it was that! Not sure where eles it came from. I will have to remember everything I ate today. Just amazing how stuff effects me so fast!! 

 

fyi - if i take a gluten 'hit' i can usually count on it hitting 2 days later.  i might feel a little 'puny' before i am sure but at 2 days i *know* what it was - you might want to journal your meals?  it helped me figure out where things were 'getting' me.  

 

my husband likes PREGO jarred sauce.  me?  not so much, but i give in every now and again - it's safe, too :)

I know you won't forget. :) The heat is what it is. I'm pretty beat for the day myself and won't do much more than sitting on my butt and dinner after my trip out this morning in the sun and heat at 9 in the morning. Whoever ordered this heat is no longer allowed to place orders. Ever. <_<

 

How do we cope? A/C of course! I rarely leave home in this kind of heat unless I absolutely have to and if I do it is always early early in the morning or late in the evening. Or even in the middle of the night. My grandparents will open windows in a way that gets a breeze through the house, keep curtains closed on windows to keep sun out. Fans. I personally think my whole family without A/C back east are completely nuts.

we have NO a/c - i wait all winter to be this warm and wear the least amount of clothes possible.  people tend to freeze me!  we have open windows, breeze off the river, and an industrial attic fan that pulls in air throughout the house.  our house is over 100 years old and built to be 'open' - i keep the front and back doors open and the breeze blows right through.  it's nice for most of the summer :) we have an 'emergency' window a/c, but haven't had to use it yet.....  and if the hubs wants a/c, he can go to work lolz   :P

We've got no AC as no one near the coast needed it when these houses were built in the 50s and 60s -- never needed it when I was kid except for one week in September -- first week back to school was always a SantaAna scorcher -- but great reason for us teenaged girls to wear next to nothing to school -- I am horrified at what we wore now!  Anyway -- it is about the same temp during the Summer but we now have more humidity...not sure where that came from but here we are.  Thus my pool and ice packs at the ready to cool me down -- we are lucky the past few days -- the marine layer is keeping us about 15 degrees cooler than my inland friends (just 5 miles inland) whom are all melting!

 

We've used Prego for years for the boys everyday stuff like bread or bagel pizzas and quick spaghetti...I make from scratch for dinner these days...but as everyone mentioned most jarred tomato sauce is gluten free...just check the label -- even if we tell you it is gluten-free...it is good to get in the habit of reading the label -- every time!

Food journal is a great idea!! TY :)

 My hubbs cannot eat Prego, I got Classico , it is stamped Gluten free, and it comes in jars that are reusable for canning :) It is a plus plus :) I also can my own but I don't have any more left!  I have some nice Chocolate tomatoes I will add to this sauce and some fresh garlic and spices :) Yummy!! I went to Kroger and got him some bread and will make him some garlic bread :) Yummy!! I am not a fan of this kind of bread anyway so it will not hurt my feelings not eating any.

Ok I had spaghetti, I used the Quinoa noodles <-- spelling ... they were actually pretty good, but I couldn't wrap my head around it!! I tasted it, liked it, texture was nice, but I just couldn't eat them, few bites was it!! It will take me a while to eat them again, not much on noodles anyway and then weird noodles is just not happening!!

My husband had a rare two days in a row off work the past two days. Which means he is heading off to work today and it is back to life as usual, holiday or no. I have a bunch of pork roasts that I cut into small "single serve" sizes for the two of us. I had gotten two out to thaw and put them in the crockpot together this morning. I'm sure I'll think of some veggie or another to have with them before the end of the day. No excitement or grilling or backyard BBQs here.

 

I'm not feeling super festive because I'm sick as a dog. Apparently I'm anemic, got the call last night at 7 after new blood work, new doctor that isn't a moron. He said (nurse, but w/e) to start taking 325mg of ferrous sulphate 3 times a day asap. It took 3 stores to find the stuff, but our trips to the other stores were not entirely in vain or unproductive.

 

At the health food store we got monkey meat! :wub: For those not in the know, that is what those of us who grew up with it affectionately call Lebanon bologna which is a Pennsylvania Dutch thing. Instead of being all pale and people colored, it is purple and flecked and unlike anything else I've ever tasted. Since the deli sells only Boar's Head meats I know I can get meats there without making a fuss. Having my husband hooked on this stuff just makes it more simple for me.

LOLZ !  killjoy..... <_<   although, we do evaluate holiday weekends as 'successful' when nobody goes to the e.r., jail or morgue, so you are on the right track  ;)

 

it's going to be rainy all day, on & off - the river is probably over the fire pit and we are not camping in the muck.  i think the wild blackberries are ready to be picked and it's only going to be 77 for the high today - long pants and work boots won't kill us to go picking today.  i think i'll crack the whip and round me up a pickin' posse!  i have a burger (yup, there's my buddy txting me that he has a pork roast that 'nothing' has touched if i want to pull some off before he (probably already cc'd it but he is so sweet to keep trying!) puts it on the grill........  awwww......

 

but i am on a strict WHAT THE HELL IS BUGGING ME diet.  (o Lord, i think it is cheese  :( ) so nothing is going in my stomach except plain foodage that i make myself.  had butter yesterday and it was ok, though.  journalinggggggggg.........

 

so, i have a plain burger with home-made ketchup on udi's bun.  everybody else will feed the hubs  :P

 

HAPPY 4TH, EVERYBODY!!!   :D

Think I might need to work out how to be getting a hootenanny going here :)


- 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.

We're having eggplant parmigianna (like chicken but with eggplant instead) with homegrown, freshly picked carrots, zucchini and baby squash steamed, freshly picked homegrown roasted sweet potato, freshly picked homegrown spinach boiled, and potato bought from the fruit and veg shop mashed.  Possibly with brussell sprouts if we have any frozen.

 

http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe/eggplant-parmigiana-L5914.html

 

We use Cheezely in place of cheese, and freshly grown tomatoes, not jars of pasta sauce but the home made variety.
