Going on our May Croatia trip in just a few days so thought I'd drop in to tell you that I've not dropped off the face of the planet.  Will be happy to trade snow for green grass, blooming plants and warm temps.  Cannot wait to see what our house renos look like!  :D

 

Please tell me I won't miss our Bingley too much.  :(

 

"Talk" to you soon!  Will report back on some of the intriguing culinary delights we discover (I'm sure there will be one or two as usual).

Caio, Bella! and Safe journey. 

 

No worries about Bingley. We had to leave our Bella for a month and she did fine with a pet sitter.

We left some of our shirts for her to snuggle into our scent.

 

You deserve this vacation in the sunshine and already,

You need the spring and sun and to get out of that frozen tundra!

 

You may miss your new little guy but you have so much to look forward to that you will soon have little time to spend missing him. I'm sure he'll find himself equally distracted, as dogs do.

 

And just think, by the time you come back there may even be some green in your tundra too. :D

We definitely do need the sun and warmth and green.  Everything is all white and/or brown.  Not a stitch of green (well, except for the shirt I am wearing at the moment). 

 

And you are right about Bingley.  We adore him but to be honest it will be a great break, just my husband and I.  There is so much to see and do there we could be occupied within an hour radius for many years.  There is the sea, castle ruins, higglepiggledy ancient villages, towns over 2,000 years old with cobblestone streets, Roman ruins, gobsmackingly gorgeous scenery and amazing food.  :)  

 

My back pain is my huge concern - these long flights nearly kill me.  Honestly.  From our door here to our door there is 36 hours of no sleep, intense pain (most of all, being forced to sit in those brutal torture chambers they call airplane seats) and so on but a good massage therapist is waiting for me at the other end.  Just wish there were painkillers strong enough to help but alas...there are not.  I assume it is sort of akin to childbirth.  You go through agony and then right before your eyes lies your hopes and dreams.  Then you forget the ick.

ah, the essence of vacation....no "ick" factor :)

 

I know how hard it is to travel, hon, and I wonder....can you get some low dose muscle relaxers maybe? skelaxin is not as hard on the system

as flexeril (so I am told)

 

Now, you know how I am about drugs, but maybe there is something for you to take perhaps?

 

I hate the thought of you in pain for so long. I was pretty ICKY after just 1200 miles.

    • You may want to keep a food and symptom journal. Our reactions can be delayed and that can make it hard to pinpoint what 'got' us. A journal can help you see a pattern and help us figure it out. Enjoy that pudding.
    • We were in Santorini and Athens in August 2015.   We found eating gluten free easy in Greece.   Their cuisine involves fairly simply ingredients, olive oil, salt, and herbs.   My celiac daughter can eat almost all the grilled meats and vegetables.   Obviously you have to avoid the pita.   Also, be careful of the gyro meat, because some places threw beer in their marinade.   My daughter enjoyed lots of grilled fish, seafood, and meats there. We found the Greeks very friendly and accommodating, when we explained that we have to avoid gluten, the servers knew what that is, and were happy to accommodate us. Airport is different.   I have the habit of calling the airline a couple of week before the flight to make sure they have gluten-free meals for my daughter.   But I always pack backups for long flights.
    • You'll get to the point where you can eat other things, you just have to give it time. Can you do eggs? Hard boiled eggs. They make fast snacks and are highly portable. If you make nut butters, you can just eat it by the spoonful.  I don't like "normal" coconut macaroons, too wet for me, ick! I found this recipe though which drives me insane --- sooooooo good I about swallow my tongue. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/toasty-coconut-macaroons-recipe-1912139 Don't know if you like them or not but re-fried beans. I NEED my carbs!!!!! If I don't get carbs, I will get weak & shaking 30 minutes after eating. I can't eat every 30 minutes!!! So I eat a lot of re-fried beans. I make a big vat & then portion into containers & freeze. If you have or get a stick blender, it will make super fast work of mashing those beans up. Only takes 2 minutes or less. I use olive oil in mine & lots of it -- need that fat. 
    • Coconut, almond butter, and cocoa nib fat bombs...I use plant fats to do it. You can make some great snacks out of fresh almond butter, shredded or coconut flour, and cocoa nibs. Sweeten with stevia for little dough like balls of goodness. Oh you miss potato chips, two options here I like to make my own protein chips with pea protein, or I can have 2-4 protes chips (vegan pea protein  chips made by a company) but they have to be eaten in moderation. Coconut chips....yeah I get Lets' Do Organic ones I can snack on a hand full of them or throw a handful of cocoa nibs in my mouth for snacks. If you like meat, try making jerky. get a dehydrator season your own and just do it.....lucky you can eat meat. I miss making roast in a crock pot....I used to make some of the best shredded meats. My old smoker.....I could make some of the best ribs and roast EVER. The jerky can be made and taken for snacks on the road or while out, crack open a can of spinach (canned unsalted delmonte does not bother me) or pack some stewed greens and have some jerky tear it up stir it in canned keto on the go. Other lovely thing are tuna and salmon if the canned bother you I often find them too salty to enjoy I have taken some and smoked it or dipped it in liquid smoke then cooked in a baking dish then loaded in to the dehydrator. I find doing this I can have that little bit of fish when I want without worry of spoilage (sucking on it and chewing it for a long time make it really satisfying for me) ....SOO doing this next week to try the fish again. Speaking of fish...since I perfected keto bread in my bakery this month......I think I might try making a tuna sandwich with avacado mayo....not had a tuna sandwich in over 5 years.....
    • I am a newly diagnosed celiac and am traveling abroad for the first time since starting the diet. I will be going to Greece in the spring. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for eating gluten free abroad or at airports? Thanks!
