I just cooked stir fry with fresh chicken and one of those frozen stir-fry mixes. As I was serving it, I found what looked like pasta. WTF? Sure enough, I looked more closely at the bag and yep, freaking pasta in the stir fry! Who wants pasta in their stir fry???

Can it be saved? We all react to CC. Can I wash the other veggies and chicken off? Or should I just give it away?

I think it would be best to give it away :)

Throw it or give it away. I once fell for that. Saw an ad on TV for some frozen product and actually went to the store to look for it. Luckily the pasta was big and obvious. And then I thought... What in the world was I thinking? Same thing when I woke up in the middle of the night and thought I could buy pies for my daughter's birthday at school. Somehow I was thinking fruit. Totally forgot about the crust. Doh!

I'll give it away. I'll be seeing most of my family this weekend. Surely someone will want a delicious stir-fry!

The kids and I wound up eating beans and rice, which was delicious. I cooked another chicken breast for lunch tomorrow and hubby ate it while I was putting the kids to bed. grr.

Stinks too b/c I re-contaminated my wok and one of my wooden spoons. :(

And that, gentle reader, is why it takes me so long to buy groceries. We have to read the labels, even of the picture looks good.

Reading labels is something I usually do religiously, but this was probably something I bought while attempting to shop with the kids on a Saturday afternoon. Either that or I was in a gluten fog from passing the bakery too slowly.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;)

    • Jmg, I am glad you were able to come to the realisation that the culprit was in fact gluten. For me its not so simple. IBS runs in the family, as do several food intolerances. Its just in the last while that I can finally reach the conclusion that for me its gluten. The fact that it is a delayed effect-several hours after, made it harder.  Friday I had some KFC, felt great. Saturday evening felt sleepy, Sunday felt awful and my belly was huge.  I think I have gone from mildly sensitive to full blown celiac over the course of five years-if that possible. Thanks for all your help.
    • I thought I'd take a moment to provide an update, given how much lurking I've done on these forums the last year. It took a long time, but I've since had another gastroenterologist visit, many months of eating tons of bread, and an endoscopy where they took several biopsies. I have to say, the endoscopy was a super quick and efficient experience. During the procedure they let me know that it looked somewhat suspicious, causing them to take many biopsies, and then did comprehensive blood work. About a month later, I received a call telling me that the TTG came back positive a second time, and that the biopsies were a mix of negative (normal) results and some that were positive (showing blunting of the villi). As a result, I've been given a celiac diagnosis. It's been about a month now that I've been eating gluten free. Not sure if I'm really feeling all that different yet. It's a bit twisted to say, but in some way I was hoping for this diagnosis — thinking how nice it would be to have an explanation, a plan of action, and feeling better. It's certainly no small change to be totally gluten free, but I'm hopeful.
    • Is it possible to go from a mild form of gluten sensitivity, to a more severe form, and finally full blown celiac?  If so, that is one of the confusing aspects of this. I have been gluten free for several weeks, and almost feeling 'normal'. I had to go and ruin it with two pieces of KFC! That stuff is  my cocaine! Sure enough,  next two days I was sleepy, depressed, and my belly stuck way out.  Before I could get away with a little cheating. Not anymore I guess!
    • I've had peeling lips for over 3 years now. What helps my lips the most is taking HCL with every meal. Another thing...I've been grain free for the most part for helping to keep my weight down. But I had noticed a few times after eating bread products, that my lips would improve significantly. So I'm eating einkorn wheat and taking HCL and have had the most improvement since it started which was around menopause. The burning at the beginning was really bad until I got off of coffee and the burning stopped. I read that coffee was a hormone disruptor. I don't know what the conclusion will be but thought I would give you my 2 cents thus far.
    • My feet used to swell up too. Impossible to sleep. Started using compression stockings and that helped. Off that job for half year, meanwhile getting 100% gluten free. Back on my feet again all day and 2 weeks later notice my feet are not swelling or heating up like before. So yes, there is a connection.
