:) Omg, I had to get in on this one-I have a friend who swears fried mac and cheese is the greatest food on the planet. She makes the creamy homemade good kind, though. Any leftovers the next day she fries in a pan with butter. Can you say arteriosclerosis?!! Deep fried must mean they make it thick with cheese and make it into a ball? I would think it would look pretty gross... :blink: Plus, wouldn't the grease in the cheese melt and then with the grease on the outside just make it one huge greaseball-y glob? :o

I have seen deep fried tweenkies too, but the strangest thing I ever heard of was batter-dipped deep fried dill pickles. I am ashamed to admit I think I would like the pickles, lol. I think they would maybe taste like fried green tomatoes.

btw-Susan --Yay! Great to see you!!!

Robbin--I've not seen the stuff personally, I'm told that it is bite-sized "nuggets" of deep fried mac and cheese. All I can think is they must scoop it into the hot fat and fry it up like that :blink:

Leah--Deep fried Coke--really? :lol:

Susie -- how are you?????? Lynnie

Before being diagnosed, we had all that deep-fried garbage at our State Fair. Deep fried snickers bars, twinkies, etc. Never tried them, because it just sounded WRONG!!!!! Also thought that it had to be a Kentucky redneck thing . . . . !!!!! :lol: Didn't know that it would be anywhere else . . . We have a restaurant that sells deep-fried pickle chips . . . called "frickled pickles"

Need to go . . . . moment of silence is getting ready to begin

I had these pre-gluten-free. They're not great, but they're not as bad as they sound. I never was a breaded and fried lover, if I had been, I'd have loved them.

Ihave had them a few times too. They are not bad. Couple chains down here server them but I forget witch ones.

Would I lie to you?

Sad but true.

Now, I do have to admit, I love fried jalapenos! They're not exactly healthy either.

After seeing how he makes it, I probably would have tried it--once upon a time. Sounds like something that would taste good for the first couple of bites, then get sickish.

One of my favorite appitizers used to be Olive Garden deep fried zucchini slices--they dust them with grated cheese--so good!

Then how on earth do you deep fry it? :blink::huh::D:D

Pauliina

Anything that can be battered can be deep fried :rolleyes:

In the UK you can get snickers and mars bar in batter deep fried

Yum-NOT :o:o

Oh I feel queasy :unsure:

It's a southern delicacy down here too - blech! :P

State fair food is evil.

"The challenge is getting people to think of other ways to eat beef," said Betty Hogan, director of new product development for the [National Cattlemen's Beef Association].

Regular cheeseburgers aren't fatty enough!!???

Also there's somebody at the Texas State Fair that makes "Fried Coke"...

I think I saw those things on unwrapped and said "EWW"

And then I saw them in my sister's freezer. What on Earth is wrong with people? :huh:

Oh, and when I got to college (I moved from NY to AR), I ate at the dining halls. I joked to everyone nothern that they fry everything but the coke!

Apparently fried twinkies are quite the thing at A&M. Gross.

And I loooooove fried pickles, sadly. It was the only thing I'd eat at AQ Chicken House!

Hmm...I should try frying some one day. :)

:lol::lol::lol: so true...

Hi everybody! Been keeping a low profile here....

Fried pickles.....I REALLY don't get that one at all. Deep fried anything.....so disgusting. I was in the waiting room of the hospital the other day, and there was a family from Holland there, six people, here for three weeks, we chatted a while and they were shocked at the lack of physical activity here.....said something about the option of staying in their rented RV in a church parking lot, less than a mile away. They were astounded that the social worker gave them a phone number for someone to come pick them up.....they said, doesn't anybody WALK here? (nope, no one does, but it's a very spread-out town.) And they commented very delicately on the obesity they've seen in this country.....they were appalled.

I'm pretty sure they don't deep-fry everything in Europe as we do here.....it is truly evil! :blink:

Leah - fried coke batter......EWWWWWWWW - - positively vomitous!

It would be even more noticeable for someone from Holland. :D Since this is such a flat country, and very densely built, meaning in towns distances are very manageable, everybody bikes to places. People might drive to work, or take a train (also very common) but then they might bike to the shops or to the train station or just for fun in the weekend. Or indeed just walk... it's a national pastime apparently (I'm not Dutch!) to take a train to some remote place and then follow a route description you can buy at a tourist office around a nice countryside route either back to the same station or to another one.

I had a couple of visitors from the US once, they were amazed at the masses and masses of bikes that are parked outside of Amsterdam central station. Instead of a car park building, there's a three story structure to park your bike... :blink::D Here in Utrecht their planning to rebuild the station and one of the important planning decisions to make is for how many bikes can they provide space for. :D

Ok, so it's not my native country, but I think this is something the Dutch well deserve to be proud of. :)

    • These are all low in fermentable carbs, but limit amounts to see what is tolerated (for us, 2 tortillas, two biscuits, one sandwich round) and don't load up on lots of baked goods in a day  I try to limit it to one baked good per day   Tortilla/ flat bread:  http://comfybelly.com/2013/04/tortillas-and-a-book-giveaway/#.WScABoFOmEc Sandwich Rounds (good with peanut butter): http://comfybelly.com/2013/08/sandwich-rounds-using-almond-flour/#.WScAm4FOmEc Biscuit (these are amazing. Make them sweet and serve with strawberries and coconut cream, savory and make sausage sandwiches, etc): http://healthyindulgences.net/2008/08/easy-low-carb-gluten-free-biscuits/
    • Thank you so much for sharing... we struggle with my daughters diet but it has only been 10 months so we are still learning the ropes. 
    • Also want to say that a lot of gluten free  recipes are not good for SIBO- too many starches. Also large quantities of almond flour or coconut flour have too much fermentable fibers so be careful with Paleo/SCD recipes too.  It's a bit of a balancing act in what you make and how much is eaten (that's why I like fast Tract- you can qualify things and it works).
    • My daughter is now 11 and we are finally on top of her SIBO (since she was 8).  Diet is super important. I know it's hard with kids, but a diet low in fermentable carbs is key. Especially when SIBO appears to be chronic.  I suggest looking into the Fast Tract Diet. There is a book and an app. Using glycemic index, fiber, and total carbs, the diet tells you the fermentation potential of different foods. There is a point system. The goal is to keep your fermentation potential points between 20-30 per day when you are experiencing SIBO symptoms, and then slowly increase to 40 points for the long term maintenance.  It is important to note that Fast Tract is not strictly gluten free. So you have to choose that yourself.  This system has worked very well for my daughter.  She also takes Atrantil daily and her GI at U of C suggested once a month going on a preventative herbal antibiotic.  Honestly, this is the best she has felt in years. Avoiding gluten is key...this is the other part of the equation. Incidentally, since gluten affects her nervous system, I think it has affected her motility, hence the SIBO.  So, diet is important and kids are difficult. Avoiding most grains is important since they are super high in fermentable carbs. BUT, there are some grains that are lower in fermentable carbs that help:  Jasmine Rice (cook in water like pasta and drain. Do not use left over because cooling causes resistant starches to form and that is aweful for SIBO).  Also mashed Red Potatoes (soak in salt water for 30 minutes to get most starch out, then rinse well, boil, drain, mash.  Again don't cool and reheat because of resistant starch). I have a terrific biscuit recipe and tortilla/flat bread recipe that I can post too. 
    • I hear ya. I spend all day in the bathroom *thinking* something's going to happen. lol
