Yup, gorgeous cat....I miss my fat, healthy, Cookster kitty....17 pounds, tortie-point Himalayan (not purebred).....quite the huntress and lived an amazing life, only sick the last two weeks of her 14 years (liver failure)..... :( When one of my dogs dies I am getting a kitty....so much easier than dogs.

I disagree GFP, I'd rather open a can (for dogs), go to a drive-thru, order up, tear a bag open (for dogs also) ANY day than have to do all this cooking I do now.....I absolutely LOATHE the acquisition and preparation of food, always have, always will....what a terrible and cruel irony Celiac is! Having to CONSTANTLY worry about food and COOK FOOD....the horror......no more just driving through El Pollo or running anywhere to pick up food.....aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! if and when I win the lottery (I guess I have to buy tickets to win :huh: ) I am getting a part-time chef......what joy!

Of course the flip side of this diet is I haven't eaten this way in years....VERY healthy and almost no processed food but how freakin' tedious to steam vegetables every day!! :angry:

How long have you been gluten-free?

I'm asking because I think cooking is something you get used to.... I mean I would die without my dishwasher but its an aquired perspective. When you base your life around running to El Pollo then you obviously don't stock up but I actually really enjoy food shopping now.

Im not saying it wouldn't be useful sometimes but if you can make it a leisure activity it can be quite fun it just takes planning and attitude.

When i buy food I walk round the market and start thinking what I can make and cooking can be quite rewarding but it helps to have someone to share ... and chat with as Im cooking, when Im alone its much harder....but I rtend to cook 3-4 portions and freeze 2 and put one in the fridge.

The thing is i can whip anything up pretty much from memory so when Im shopping recipees come to mind and I only really buy fresh fruit and vegetables but only because i have done it so long. When I was first diagnosed it was a horror and I would go to supermarkets and practically break down but once i got the knack and stopped trying to find gluten-free substitutes everywhere I started to enjoy it.

What really annoys me is inverse shopping as i call it where I go to find somethig inparticular so now i let the market decide and buy what looks good/fresh instead.

Five months.....was severely malnourished and part of the reason for "instant food " was no STRENGTH or stamina to cook anything except two or three times a week.....

Im not saying it wouldn't be useful sometimes but if you can make it a leisure activity it can be quite fun it just takes planning and attitude.

Yes, I used to enjoy this and would cook for various boyfriends and myself in younger days....but, this involved drinking WINE while doing and as you may have read in another post where I once again bared my soul, have to quit that for a while or forever...... *SNIFF*

Bien, mais vous habitez EN FRANCE et c'est la.....j'ai oublier (sp?) la mot....that's what everyone does! Vraiment la belle cuisine....ah, to be a Celiac in France, je pense que c'est plus facile?

Ooops - still don't quite know how to do those quotes in between like you all do..... :blink: don't bother explaining, my brain is feeble......

Ahh go-on its not hard you just wrap the word "quote" in square brackets at the front and "/quote" at the end of each quoted bit (can''t write it else it will quote ...) you can be fancier but that will get you off to a good start.

Some things are easier and others harder. Fresh produce is easier I think, unless you live in the sticks in the US and even in Paris I have lots of markets to choose from but awareness is nearly non-existant ....

Haven't read your alcohol post yet... I did notice you had posted on it but if I look I will end up commenting again!

Saw the girlfriend of my bipolar friend last night btw... he has a morbid fear of death and is working in the graveyard .. although not nights... and apparently he's coping really well, given up weed and down to 2 sixpacks a day (and non export at that) although the Dr's keep telling hoim he needs to stop drinking for the medication to work properly ...its still a massive step for him!

When I'm alone and my girlfriend is away I tend to invite friends over .... it helps to have the incentive. Strangely I rarely drink when I cook.... ?? dunno why?

LindaLee, Both of my cats have celiac, so I use Special Kitty brand from Wal Mart in the green bag. It has to be the green bag, the blue one had wheat last time I looked. Also, probably half of the Special Kitty canned cat food is glutenfree. You have to read the labels, but my cats are doing sssooo much better on a gluten-free diet! I always know when Joie steals a slice of bread, the whole house stinks!

I did not get the special kitty green bag it said wheat on it. Which one do you get? Thanks, LLee

Yup, Tika comes up with very exotic (read: expensive) illnesses and friends now call her The Dog Who Will Not Die (lymphoma survivor, pancreatitis, Cushing's, now what appears to be Celiac..... :blink: )

On a serious note, my Annie is quite sick, with symptoms that are not indicative of giardia, and I was informed of this by 2Kids4Me, whose husbnad is a vet. That's the great thing about this board - so many people with such a knowledge base. So, we are going to the doctor today, and I can only hope it isn't too expensive and that she's okay. :(

    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
