Since it's summer here, I made rice paper "summer" rolls: slaw of cabbage and carrots with commercial feta/garlic dressing; sushi rice, spears of cucumber, avocado, goat feta cheese,

julienne of carrots, green onions, snow pea sprouts for hubs and watercress for me, along with shrimp. Yum. Super healthy! I used the feta dressing for dipping sauce, hubs made a wasabi/tamari???!!! combination :lol:

Last night I had veggie-beef soup made from that leftover beef roast and juices that I had stuck in the freezer a couple of weeks ago. I actually made the soup the day before and as with many soups, this was even better the second day.

Since I never use a recipe for it, it doesn't turn out the same way twice. I added chopped onion and celery, a can of V-8, a box of Progresso beef broth, a can of petite diced tomatoes, some shredded cabbage and a bag of frozen mixed veggies, basil and parsley (that's the things I remember). Glad I managed to stash some single serving containers in the freezer for future quick meals when I positively don't feel like cooking.

Oh, and I also had a gluten-free Betty Crocker cupcake about 9 p.m....

Tonight is an easy gluten-free dinner. Steak and lettuceless salad. No thinking needed. Just eating.

Last night for dinner I made fluffy pancakes. Our local health food store had a Gluten Fest this last weekend. I love to be able to sample gluten-free foods before buying. One company was making pancakes. Those fluffy light ones that I have not been able to find in years. Their mix, Light-As-Air Pancakes is very good. My DH was in heaven to have a great pancake dinner. I believe it was by Fahlstrom Farms.

Ya'll are making me jealous! Yumm!

Tonight we had grilled pork steaks that I marinated in orange juice & s&p with brown rice, stamed swiss chard and roasted mushrooms and a little bit of fresh pineapple. And one small piece of dark chocolate for dessert. Not bad. B)

Taco Rice--I'm a taco lover and this is better than tacos any day. There are lots of recipes on the internet. I just make it the same way I do for tacos. I do add whole beans to the meat.

Tonight I made a stir-fry with chicken breast, shrimp, onions, snow peas, mushrooms, yellow squash and probably a couple of other things I've forgotten. And Jasmine rice. Now I'm having a Reese's peanut butter cup. :D

Tonight, I had gluten free pasta with frozen vegetable mix of broccoli, green beans, carrots, kidney beans, white beans, black beans, added some garlic and onion and topped with parmesan. mmmmm my go to meal when I don't feel like cooking anything big.

I was in CA last week and for my son's birthday I made him a chocolate cake (regular not gluten free) and I also made a gluten free version of the same old family recipe using Bob's Red Mill all purpose baking flour and a tsp of xanthum gum per cup of flour. They all liked my gluten free version better and some of the guests couldn't tell the difference!! My youngest son that lives with me said that going forward I can make the gluten free one all the time!!! I'm making it for a party I'm going to next Sunday and only the hostess knows it's gluten free (wink). I'm also making a pasta salad that I made in CA as well. Tinkyada spiral noodles, grape tomatoes, mozzarella pearls, chopped onion, chopped garlic, olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some chopped fresh parsley and basil. Let this combo sit for a while and the flavor is amazing. (I almost didn't get any at the party last week and I was the only gluten free one there lol)

Another thing I did today - I had purchased some Glutino sesame bagels and wasn't crazy about the taste or texture as a bagel so I cut them up in little chips and drizzled with olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, and a little salt and baked them until they were dried out and crunchy. OMG they taste like the rye chips in Gardetto's... LOL I have a whole bag of the chips from 3 bagels.

Happy Cooking

Make your items you make for tacos, use no shell or tortillas, put hot cooked rice in a bowl, top with cheese and then layer on taco meat and any topping you desire.

Toasted cheese sandwiches. Mine had tomato. Ceaser salad kit from Costco. Croutons went in the trash and were replaced with gluten-free ones. Added black olives. Also apple crisp.

I pulled a serving of my veggie-beef soup out of the freezer for dinner. And because it's a pretty light meal, I'm going to indulge in a Udi's Double Chocolate Muffin later this evening (nuked briefly to melt those chocolate chips). They are to die for...albeit a bit on the expensive side but I figure I'm worth it. :D

I'm intrigued with the fish pie...would love details...

Tonight we had fish filets, marinated in fresh herbs, lemon juice and olive oil and minced green onion/serranno pepper, wrapped in parchment paper and grilled, along with grilled new potatoes and summer squash. I just add chopped onion or chopped green onion to the taters and drizzle olive oil over them, add sea salt and freshly ground pepper, wrap them in foil and dh takes it from there on the grill.

I live with a grill master. If I marinate something or cover it in aluminum foil, he'll grill it, despite the weather. Yay!

That sounds wonderful! I need a grill master at my house!!!

Sylvia, thanks for reminding me. Because the grill master isn't gluten-free, sometimes he's a pain, but worth keeping.

I didn't eat much tonight. I accidently had some soy today. That twists me up.

I made this tonight and must tell you it is sooooo good!!! It just so happened that I had leftover rice in the fridge so I didn't even have to cook it. I used shredded cheddar cheese and a medium-hot salsa on top. YUMMY! And another emergency meal (plus some to stash in the the freezer)

I also made a simple flourless chocolate cake today with a chocolate ganache glaze. Actually I made it for a get-together with friends tomorrow...but I'm going to sneak a piece tonight. I imagine it will be very rich as an 8" single layer cake makes 12 servings. :P

    • Get me the manufacturing date, and lot number on this please. I know some people in the company and will forward this to them. I am also notifying them of this thread. They are the only brand I use for spices and have not had ANY issues in over 4 years of using their spices.
    • Hi everyone! I'm hoping for some guidance on the gluten challenge. My doctor ordered the blood test, but doesn't seem to know much about it. Thus why I'm here. I've been doing a gluten challenge for two weeks now and I'm miserable. But I never really cut gluten out of my diet 100% before. I would occasionally have breaded chicken, soy sauce, a flour tortilla etc. maybe once every couple days or so. I starting really noticing reactions which prompted me to ask for the test from my doctor. I had been on a limited gluten diet for less than two months. I'm not sure why I'm so affected by it all of a sudden.  So my question is, with the limited amount of gluten I was eating before and the short length of my limited gluten diet, could I be fine to take the test now? I really don't want to get a false negative. But holy cow I'd love to feel better again.  Symptoms: diarrhea gas floating, smelly, hard to flush stool extreme fatigue (like I have to lie down within a couple hours of eating gluten, and lately I've just been in bed virtually all day.) I'm losing my hair! Depression.    Also, I've always had problems with my digestive issues, but it's definitely gotten worse in the last year or two.    Thanks for for your help! Alyssa
    • I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA.  I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests.  They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below.   I just wanted to warn everyone away from them.  They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
