I Have Much To Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving. Help Me Celebrate!

After having been low iodine for what seems like a lifetime in order to keep the dh rash from eating me/us alive, I am overjoyed to say that both my husband & I are eating iodine without incident! We began the iodine experiment slowly & cautiously on September 10th of this year. We have a whole egg every morning, in fact, this morning my hubs had two! We have cheese, ohhhhhhh that lovely flavor of cheese.... longhorn cheddar, sharp cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, swiss. Milk, milk for sake of itself, milk in things, milk chocolate (we may die from Raisinette overdose! LOL!), sour cream, chicken parmesan with the cheese, pizza, butter. Tonight we had baked potatoes halved & loaded with butter & sharp cheddar. Cheese in salads! The list goes on. We're no longer afraid of anything dairy because of the iodine content. You ought to see next weeks grocery list. Cream cheese, cottage cheese & more. I can finally have one of my favorite comfort foods ~~~~ cream of potato soup. 

Being gluten free was one thing & we have dealt with that very well. Not a big deal. But not being able to have dairy or turnip greens, spinach, asparagus, lima beans or other high iodine beans, whole eggs was torture. It seemed that every time we turned around we couldn't eat this or that or make this or that because of the iodine. I would find wonderful gluten-free recipes online or given to me by friends & there was always that big moment of letdown when it contained high iodine foods.

Yes, we still both have rash but it has been no worse since we reintroduced iodine.

It won't be long before we try adding back seafood.

But for now we are celebrating like crazy!!!!!!!! We truly have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. :D

I am always happy to hear my friends are enjoying better health, reintroducing foods without adverse reactions and

in general, enjoying life as they so richly deserve! So whooooohoooo!

 

There was a time when I could barely eat anything, my GI tract was a such a burning, churning mess and then, the histamine intolerance made 

me so unhappy, but all that is reasonably under control now. I had shellfish last week and I'm ok! whew! 

 

Healed gut = happy campers enjoying simple pleasures!

Happy Thanksgiving. xx  Mangia & bon appetite!

actually, no. :D

I know--you would think a New England Yankee like me would do that, but I am a purist. I only like apple and sage stuffing.

But yes, I love oysters. Oysters rockefeller. oh boy. (holy smokes, I just drooled a little.........)

Thank you! And now I feel bad that you can't have dairy. :( It sucks doesn't it? You'll get there too though. Just hang in there & you'll get there. It's funny how when you haven't had something in a long, long time, you tend to OD on it. I'm putting cheese on things I never put cheese on in my entire life. LOL! I can't seem to get enough of it. My bones are thanking me though for the "calciyum". :D

I made a dairy free pumpkin pie this Saturday! It was delicious. I made it using coconut milk! I used some ground flax and whole oats as the binding agent. My crust was made from almond meal. It totally worked. Silver lining!! :D

The almond meal pie crust:

 

1.5 cups of almond meal

3 tbsp butter

3 tbsp sugar (or sugar subst)

 

Melt butter and mix with almond meal and sugar and then press into the pie pan. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes (or until the crust starts to brown)

 

for the pie recipe I got it from this site:

 

http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2013/11/04/healthy-pumpkin-pie-recipe/

 

I made it with brown sugar - not the coconut sugar or stevia. Came out great. The only thing is you really don't want to pull it out of the oven because it jiggles so much but it has to refrigerate and set. I let mine refrigerate over night and the texture was great!

Oh it is sooooo easy!! And you could easily spice it up too and add cinnamon, etc to make it more festive! I made this crust before I went gluten-free too because it's lower carb. My boyfriend (a gluten eater) prefers it to the traditional graham cracker crusts or the flakey pie crusts. Enjoy!

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
