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

    • 6 months for me stuff was still iffy. I was having bad days good days wtf days. Seemed like ANY change and my body threw a tantrum like a little kid. Yeah sleep patterns lol. I STILL CAN not change them I HAVE to go to bed at a certain time and WAKE at a certain time (9pm-4am)or my cycle goes all out of wack (also take a mid afternoon nap) , the entire day becomes ruined. Meals are the same way. There is this like 30-60mins window if I miss this shot my body goes all kinds of wonky. Mostly it become anemic and my got shuts down and constipation sets in. Always have to have hot fluids or this happens also.....no more cold drinks lol.

      EVEN if your levels are fine, supplementing is something many of us HAVE to do. For me I do not feel "Normal" unless I take my B-vitamins etc. Heck if i miss my magnesium supplement I block up, stop stomach emptying, get cramps, and generally vomit after day 2 if I eat anything. Supplementing is the new "Normal" for me.

      Still to this day food diary shows ups and downs with certain foods, I can not eat many foods, and others HAVE to be prepared in a certain way. heck up until recently I assumed it was a histamine issue or mast cell. Then I found some high histamine foods that should did not bother me go figure, then learned of something called Lectins and my prep methods that work with foods.....corresponds to lowering lectin content.....yeah SO I might have solved that mystery but am experimenting with it still.

      Health wise I am now doing much better and after 4 years found that "Perfect" diet plan for my body (at least for now). Putting on weight,  and trying to body build, still seems to yoyo with ups and days but less now.
    • Sorry to hear you are still suffering so. Have you had a vitamin and mineral panel done?  You should at least have your B12 levels checked. If they are not over 500 then try a subligual B12. That might help a bit.  I take a Stress B supplement but was able to drop the B12 after about 5 years. I know how hard it is to stick to a very regimented schedule as far as sleep goes. I suffer greatly if I don't retire and get up at the same time every day. I am trying to adjust my schedule a bit right now and paying for it. I have been going to sleep at 8pm and getting up at 4am now for a long time which cuts out any real social life.  The last few days I have stayed up till 9:30 or so and gotten up at 5:30 with a headache and generally feeling lousy.  I started getting up very early a few years ago so that I would still get enough sleep even if I have to be somewhere earlier than normal.  Is it possible to adjust your sleep schedule so that if needed you can be somewhere early and not have it mess up your system?  I try to wake at least 3 to 4 hours before I leave the house. It is amazing how much you can get done and how relaxed your beginning day is when you don't have to worry about having to get up early to accomodate an unusually early obligation. Please don't get discouraged. It can take a very long time to heal but for many of us we were ill for years before we finally got diagnosed. I hope you see more progress soon. Be patient with yourself as there are no instant fixes for us, unfortunately.
    • So, it's been 6 months gluten free, grain free, dairy free... Pretty much everything free, and progress has been pretty minimal. I will say that I definitely feel better than I did when I started, but I'm still nearly completely non-functional. I still feel like I'm not in reality, still can't focus, still pretty dizzy, panic attacks, exhausted, crippling lethargy, muscle twitches, you name it. As I've said before, I've got all my bases covered on CC, have my own pans, etc. Sometimes I do feel like I'm getting better, but then for little to no reason, such as mis-timing a meal, or waking up or going to bed an hour early or late, my body throws a tantrum and everything comes flooding back. The past couple weeks I've been trying a low carb, high fat "keto" diet, which seemed to be working after some of the induction stuff passed, but the other day I had to get up early, and since then I've been disoriented, derealized, and exhausted. It's impossible for me, or anyone, to be as consistent as my idiot body demands. I've had my vitamin/mineral levels checked, and thyroid checked, all coming back normal. I had an endoscopy done at the beginning of September, and the biopsy came back negative for celiac. All they found was some irritation in my stomach and slapped GERD on me. That said, the same thing happened to my aunt, who is celiac. I don't know how she eventually found out, but if it means doing a gluten challenge, I don't need an official diagnosis from some whitecoat moron. I'm out. I also don't know how many samples they took in my small intestine. From what I can gather, they only took one in there. Unsurprising, as I had a bad reaction to the anesthetic AND the oxygen, and when I called him asking about it he basically told me I was a crazy person. Another awful doctor experience. Anyway, ranting aside, I feel like I've tried nearly everything at this point. The only other thing I can think of to try is to select a red crystal and kneel down by a specific wall and wait for a magical tornado to come take me to the next chapter in my life. Who else here saw little progress in 6 months, and what the hell did you eventually do to fix things? I'm open to any and all suggestions besides 50 caliber aspirin, which is an option, but I'd rather not go that route.
    • My TTG-IGA level was 136 and I was diagnosed with celiac.   
    • "One Post by Allison on May 7th states "You can't say it is gluten free and then say oh well celiacs can't eat it. Make no sense......." Marketing vs. quality control  "The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness supports the availability of Domino's Gluten Free Crust, but cannot recommend the pizza for customers with celiac disease." Huh? 😮 Thanks Admin at least someone has our back.... Note to self- no dominos NFCA endorsed product ? check celiac.com before...  😉
