  1. Thank you so much for the elementary re-education in civics, but you completely missed the point. A mother was helping another mother.
  2. Can we puleese allow members to post their opinions without repercussion, Stephaniet?
  3. Pre-Occupation With Health

    Have you seen an endocrinologist and a rheumy? If you pass their work ups, you can rest easy. Here's a link you may find helpful, if you haven't hit it already. http://www.lupus.org/answers/entry/common-symptoms-of-lupus. Good luck.
  4. Gotta ski, thought of you when I saw this recipe. Read 37 pages of members whose names begin with G and finally decided to just post it. Looks like good stuff. https://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=jSh6VJYRV-g
  5. Just check to see if they are made in China. http://www.techtimes.com/articles/7411/20140523/petco-petsmart-move-to-ban-dog-treats-made-in-china-heres-why.htm My girlfriend almost lost her beloved dig after she was feeding him dog food from China. She sent a list of all dog foods and treats that were mfg. in China. I believe pupperoni was on it, but Im not sure. She advised that if you had anything on that list, you throw it out. I imagine a cat would be more susceptible than a dog...
  6. You'd still get the raw end of the deal.
  7. P.S. I'll make a menu plan for you if you'll come and clean my house.
  8. That menu plan comes from a very reputable source. Black beans and rice or red beans and rice has been a staple here since I went gluten-free and I never had a problem with it. I had allergy testing and scored a 3 on a scale of 5 for being allergic to egg yolks, but eaten in moderation they don't bother me. I bought a pressure cooker so I could make my own beans and use a G Foreman grill quite often for chicken and fish. Those are my 2 tips for the day.
  9. This turned up when I googled Gluten Free Menu Plan. http://celiac.org/live-gluten-free/7-day-gluten-free-meal-plan/ You'll need to make substitutions based on your food preferences. You also might like to try a paleo cookbook.
  10. Could This Be Dh?

    I would try to avoid the steroid cream. It causes thinning of the skin. Try the diet again and see what happens. Or get him to a good derm. or ped if you want a diagnosis before putting him on a gluten-free diet and be insistent that he be tested. I feel for both of you! .l
  11. Just distract them with conversation on the way into the restaurant. They won't even notice, unless they want a burger on a big wheat bun. If they get in a hissy about that, they can stop my Mc D's or BK on the way back to your placel
  12. I love Bonefish Grill. They're the bomb.
  13. Hi Michelle, When you develop an insensitivity to a food, whack the food and go with an alternative. A good substitution for salad dressing could be lemon juice and olive oil, or vinegar and olive oil. If you want to make it tastier, add herbs or mustard. In a few months, if you're feeling brave and adventurous, try the Bragg.s again. Good luck.
  14. I had a reaction to the anesthesia, which was soy based. I probably could have worked from home, but I didn't feel safe driving.
