I made Mexican Pizza.

A cookie sheet of polenta topped with grated cheese, chopped onion ground beef with taco seasoning and some enchilada sauce. Put it in a 425 oven for about 10 minutes and sprinkled with chopped green onion. Delicious and very filling.

Baked spaghetti squash smothered in slowly sauteed candy sweet onions, gypsy peppers & garlic. Had it last week & left us craving more. Just seemed perfect for a cold rainy week-end.

Tomato soup (recipe made by moi, but has tomatoes :rolleyes: and rice, so a few people here can't eat it), a banana, a bar of soy chocolate with rice flakes, a tall glass of acerola juice and half a cup of coffee.

I feel happy because I am full and my stomach does not grumble nor hurt.

Apparently my no energy Thursday evening turned into feeling like I had razor blades in my throat by bedtime. I took myself off to the doctor on Friday just to make sure it wasn't strep. Nope, just a fun head cold yay! I didn't eat yesterday at all, I was in too much pain to consider putting food against my throat. I found the energy tonight to cook some rice ramen for supper for both of us.

Yup, both sick so I don't even have a well husband to dote on me and take care of me. I had to go buy my own cough drops. The bright side is when you sound like you're dying every time you cough no one at the store will come within like 100 feet of you so you get whole aisles to yourself to pick out flavors of cough drops. :D

Tomorrow is soup. Taking the top off a can is gonna be a real challenge. I can barely get myself up the stairs at this point. Hopefully by Monday I'll be feeling better and I'll get that appetite with a vengeance thing going on. What I want is a salad, but there is no way I'm going to eat something that won't just slide right down painlessly.

AAAAWWWW Adalaide, I feel bad for you. I hope you get better soon. We're sick at my house too. Diahrrea, fever, runny nose, body aches.....ugh....

Last night I wanted pizza really bad, but can't have dairy anymore, so whats a girl to do?????

I didn't feel like making a crust from scratch, and my local grocery store does not carry dairy free cheese, so, I decided that I didn't need cheese to make a pizza, that's right, I made it without any cheesy topping at all, and it was delicious, beyond my expectations. I did not miss cheese at all.

I bought Udi's pizza crust, ragu quick pizza sauce, and topped it with Boar's head pepperoni, red onion, mushrooms, red pepper, and olives. Guess what? It was amazing. My only problem was that the toppings fall off because they don't have the cheese to glue it all together, however; my husband solved the problem by telling me to cut wide pieces of pizza, and fold it over like they do on the east coast to eat it, it worked great, and was less messy.

I can haz pizza again:)

Rice Flour Gnocchi with Roasted Garlic, White Wine and Shallot Sauce

I have a potato Gnocchi recipe I have always used and loved. It has some flour in it. If I use a gluten free flour should I add some X-gum?

For tonight I am making a huge pan of roasted veggies.

Getting ready to go on a month-long vacation to Europe so are cleaning out the fridge. We are simply having a bacon and potato cake or truffade (many layers of very thinly-sliced potatoes and bacon pressed into a cake). And raw cucumber from a friend's garden.

That pizza sounds great. I think I'm finally gonna order some Venice crusts this week to try and see how that goes. My husband is a complete jerk. He is making me drink orange juice because it'll help me get better he says. It may as well be battery acid I'm pouring onto the back of my throat. I do feel mildly better though, I'm coughing less and my fever broke so maybe his battery acid is working. I'm totally going to have that soup for supper when he gets home and I can make him open the can. I don't know what he's having and frankly I don't think I have the energy to care today. I am so not going to get my pretzels chocolate dipped in time for my new video game on Tuesday.

Anything involving proscuitto always sounds 110% awesome. And you wouldn't be starving for a week if we had our muumuus. :D

So not my weekend for cooking, i somehow ruined all but one pancake.... Me thinks it might be the stove and the fact that i'm not used to it, as i've only been here for a little over a month.

That's right, A!

SORA! Girl, where the heck ARE those muumuus anyway?

Geesh, looks like a package sent through the Canadian postal service is slower in coming than a compliment from a mother-in-law.

Dinner tonight: lettuce and water.

What a feast!

Should have let me know I could have popped across the water with those Muumuu's then you wouldn't have to be eating lettuce all week. :)

Tonight we had the last of the turkey with gravy and rice with carrots and honey.

I ate today! This of course led to a disagreement between my butt and I on how far was safe to travel from the bathroom but for an extremely short period of time there was food in me. :) I meandered about the store while they were filling my prescription because they have the most horrid chairs there and found some bison for $4 a pound marked down 2 days before it's expiration. I figured ground meat would be easy to eat so we made them into burgers and I managed to get the whole thing in the top before it made a glorious exit.

You know IH, I guess there is a sort of positive here. According to the doctor from Friday to Monday I lost just over 5 pounds. It's like a kick start to my diet. If you like you can come visit and I'll give you a kick start. :P

Gee, er,um...thanks, sweets, but no thanks. I have plenty of experience in losing weight the "sick" way and it's not fun. I'll just cut back on the carbs and sweets and wear sweatpants for a few weeks.

Seriously, I do hope you feel better soon! xxoo

Dinner tonight:

Salmon

Swiss chard

Apples---they are coming out our ears.

Most are given to the local adult care/nursing home for use in their kitchen.

We can only eat so much applesauce and we do NOT need to be eating any apple pie, apple crisp or galettes. :D

    • Certainly seems likely if those levels dropped due to gluten removal. I am just curious, when you had the scope eventually, were you eating it?  Are you feeling any better? 
    • 1. Double checked your antibodies? 2. Those of us with celiac have issues with some nutrients for various reasons, being either we can not absorb enough of them from our foods due to damage to intestines or the new gluten-free foods you changed to are non fortified and do not contain the nutrients you which is especially true if you eat a bunch of processed gluten-free foods. A combination of both of these can lead to extreme fatigues. I found taking Magnesium, and B-Vtitamin supplementation helps (Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with Neurological support same company, Liquid version is easy to absorb and no pills). Look into KAL Nutritional Yeast also, I use it to make condiment cheese sauces, toppings, blend it with egg whites. it contains many nutrients we are lacking and is a great supplement/food to have in your diet. 3, Look into what cycling lady mentioned, this could also be a issues. 4. Had your blood sugar checked?
    • I'm going to play Captain NCGS to Posterboy's Professor Pellagra (No doubt the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes will soon be bidding for our services) and say that regardless of the blood test results, this: is exhibit one. You have a reaction to the gluten free diet. That doesn't necessarily eliminate fodmaps or issues with other components of wheat, but it's at least suggestive and the main reason I think you need to get back on it and give it a longer go. In fact, as I hinted at in the previous post, I'd be doing my 'goodbye gluten' top 10 croissant and bagel bucket list because I don't think you should go back to it simply based on exhibit one. It's messing with you in a way that it shouldn't. I had sciatic back pain for 20 years which I attributed to a disk injury. It was left sided and when bad travelled down my left leg following the sciatic nerve. I had all the scans, treatments, exercises etc. Nothing really worked and it was at times intensely debilitating.  Drum roll... Gluten free diet cured it. My new theory is that gluten related inflammation was localised in that area and it caused the pressure on the nerve. Now why there and not elsewhere? No idea, but it could be inflammation causing your pain? I went for several diabetes tests because I would suddenly become very weak, hungry and I would feel unwell. Weak, hot, light headed, on the verge of passing out. The tests were normal but I knew that I seemingly had a blood sugar issue. Another win for the gluten-free diet.  It sorted the tremors in my hand (begone thoughts of early onset parkinsons or ms) and the nerve twitching under my eye and etc etc. well you get the point. I've said above I sometimes wonder if I'm undiagnosed celiac but there are certain aspects of NCGS which seem to fit me and maybe you too. My digestion stomach etc is much better now but I wouldn't have said before all this that it was particularly bad. I read this http://www.bmj.com/content/345/bmj.e7982 and I have a similar experience that neuro symptoms were more apparent than digestive in the 'classic celiac' model. (more of that sort of thing here though I already sent you the Umberto Volta I think. I would be fascinated if you, your brother and myself were to do the gluten challenge and then take this test: http://www.medicaldaily.com/non-celiac-gluten-insensitivity-blood-test-392850 what the result would be. But you know what, unless the scientists put out a call for more volunteers I won't be doing it. In the search for answers, validation, certainty, it's easy to forget the real goal, feeling better. After several years on the gluten-free diet I feel better. I'm no longer thinking that the next bout of chest pain will be my last minutes on earth. I no longer worry about going blind because half my vision has gone grey, I'm not trembling, I don't have cardiac arrythmia, I don't have rheumatic pain, I don't have crippling back ache like I'm 40 years older, I don't get  faint, dizzy and heart pounding when I stand up,  I don't have brain fog, anxiety, depression (well sometimes!), painful stomach cramps, weird white tongue, rashes on my torso, horrible greasy skin on face, horrible dry peeling scalp, sores on my scalp and neck, white spots on my fingernails, I'm not sweating so much I have to douse myself in antiperspirant, I don't have all this and more and I don't have a letter from a doctor saying I have celiac and I don't give a **** about it. I don't have gluten and as the Godfather of soul would say...  I feel good  Feel good IT. You've done as much as anyone could to find an answer. Maybe there's one around the corner or maybe there'll be one in 5 or 10 years when the likes of Marios Hadjivassiliou, Umberto Volta or Alessio Fassano have completed their research. Or maybe not or never. It's in the 'nice to have' than the essential's for me now. Do the diet, note your symptoms, stay connected with your doctor so that if there is anything that sticks around suggestive of other things you're on top of it, but feel good and focus on that and enjoying life.  All the best!    
    • I think he's right. It's a hard burden at times at any age but there will be particular challenges for your daughter as kids don't want to stick out or have to be continually monitoring things like their food. Check out this advert from a UK retailer. Beware it's so sugary it could probably give a diabetic person a sugar crash! Maybe you could do similar? Just get or make a selection of kid friendly foods but don't say anything about it to your daughter, just everyone go in and start filling their plates.  If she asks you if you've done anything for her you just tell her that she can eat everything on the table. At least this would show both that choice is still available to her and that because everyone is eating the same thing that she won't feel like she's being singled out?
