where's the protein? Cake for dinner or breakfast is OK once in awhile, but you consistently eat small amounts of foods and call it a meal. This isn't good for your health.

I can't eat big meals, unfortunately. So I know I'm just snacking along the day and never having a full meal but when I do, I get bloated and uncomfortable for hours. It has been resolving at a good rate ever since I decided to go grain free. Eating cake with carrots was an utopia one week ago. Either I had the cake, or the carrots. The tea? Only a few sips of it.

At any rate, I will wait an hour and fetch some chicken breast leftovers.

Really? because I am not really "sensing this joy" at all. :lol:

Chill, I could not be any happier for you, babe! I know how long your journey with food intolerances --besides the celiac--has been.

So, yes...I am thrilled for you!

Go, chilly, Go chilly, Go chilly! (wish I had a pom-pom girl emoticon)

cooking for us and food to take to my parents.

I made some pumpkin spice cookies. Some for us & some for my folks.

Made a batch of beef stew in the crockpot, mostly for my parents, but will keep at least 1 big serving for left- over night or M's lunch.

Making tortillas soup with lots of chicken, corn and black beans for us. my folks wouldn't like it.

Made extra chicken in the crockpot ( some for the tortilla soup) to make some chicken potato soup for my folks and some left over for us.

husband was hunting all weekend, so i ate everything (leftovers) in the fridge :) and i made a big tray of eggplant rollatini (which he hates eggplant) so i have been wearing that out. he came in last night and we had shrimp francese w/rice and artichoke w/garlic butter. now, he is off trailer-trucking. can i eat the rest of the leftovers by the time he does 3000 miles??? i believe i can......

got 80 lbs of venison at the processor's - gotta make room in the freezer!!! i took out a package that said 'chops' - turns out it is 'loin' - i was going to slice it thin, marinate it and grill it on skewers but he said *wrong* cut of meat?? so, what to do with venison loin?? (marinate it whole and cook it rare??) any i'deer's ?? :D

GARNETT PJXG05A

1/2 Bay leaf -- crushed

1 Loin roast venison

1/2 ts Celery seeds

1/2 lb Salt pork -- cut into

1/2 ts Dry thyme

1 sm Onion -- chopped

To

10 ml Garlic -- minced

4 Whole cloves

1 tb Fresh parsley -- chopped

1 ts Beef bouillon

Taste

Fold 2 large sheets of aluminum foil together with a double fold. There should be enough to enclose the roast. Place roast on foil. Lard with pork strips.

Have you tried any of the venison yet? If so, is it very gamey? Sometimes I find it deplorably gamey but other times it can be very good. I love good venison and one of my favourite ways to do it is to make a blackberry (or cherry or other slightly tart berry) gastrique. A loan recipe that is very good is Roasted Venison with Blackberry Sage Sauce...very appropriate for your cut.

Please let us know what the flavour is like. I am very curious!

Leftover roast chicken from last night but am re-purposing with almost a picatta sauce over celeriac/potato puree and steamed green beans. Add to that amazing Italian breadsticks I baked this morning that are soft on the inside with a great brown crisp crust.

Could you share your chicken potato soup recipe? I hate the rice noodles, but loved chicken soup. With potatoes, I think it would be a good soup for me. :)

Could you share your chicken potato soup recipe? I hate the rice noodles, but loved chicken soup. With potatoes, I think it would be a good soup for me. :)

Could be made without the milk. Really tastes best if it sits overnight in the fridge. You could add veggies. You would want to pre-cook them and put them in after the blender part.

Chunky Chicken Potato Soup

3 med potatoes, peeled & cubed

2 cups chopped onion

4 cups water

1 tbps chicken flavored bouillion granules (I use 2 packets of Herb Ox)

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

2 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast (about 1 lb of boneless)(I like to put it in the blender and make it really tiny pieces)

¼ cup skim milk

Shredded cheddar

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients & bring to a boil. Cover & reduce heat. Simmer about 30 minutes until potatoes are tender.
  2. Place half the potato mixture in an electric blender. Process until smooth.
  3. Add pureed mixture, chicken & milk back into pot. Heat.
  4. Top with shredded cheddar.
  5. Best eaten the next day, re-heated.

Just a piece of grilled fish and a glass of passionfruit juice. Not in the mood to eat, to be honest. I tried to eat some rice at lunch to see if I still could handle grains, but I am bloated and uncomfortable and have been like this the entire afternoon.

Grain free it is.

Today I made queso fresco. Chicken tacos and fried cheese for supper. The waiting is killing me!!! I didn't get around to the cheese until this afternoon and it is just about time to go check on it again. I think I may just unwrap that cheesecloth and get into it anyway.

I also made some fresh butter again. This time I'm using the butter with some peppermint marshmallows and Cocoa Pebbles to make krispy treats. Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Just got my 1st crockpot!!

So, fingers crossed pork (loin!) with leeks onions carrots with sage and tarragon. Put a few bits of potato, hoping it will thicken a bit.

More excited than is reasonable :)

    • Former lifeguard and competitive swimmer here. There could be some potential issues, but I think it's pretty unlikely. Here's why I think that: 1. The water volume in a standard 25m pool is enormous (hundreds of thousands of liters). Assuming there are people swimming in the pool, any hot spots are likely to get dissipated pretty fast, so you'd have to swallow a lot of water to get a serious gluten hit. 2. By law (at least in Canada), the water inflow and outflow rates must be such that the volume of water that makes up the pool must be replaced every 24 hours in public pools. There are always some dust bunnies, bandaids and whatnot trapped in the corners at the bottom of the pool, but the main volume you're interacting with gets replaced regularly, so no build-up. Public pools are also vacuumed on a regular basis. For cleaning agents, typically on bleach and baking soda are used in my experience. Private pools are another story and there no guarantees. 3. Most public pools prohibit food on deck due to public health regulations and/or wanting to avoid cleaning up messes. This limits potential sources of gluten to personal care products on other people's skin. Considering the volume of a pool, I'm having trouble imagining this resulting in a significant exposure, but I have also swam in packed outdoor pools that taste like sunblock, so who knows. I would definitely worry if people were eating hot dogs or shotgunning beers in the pool though (definitely a thing at backyard pool parties). 4. Pool chlorine can be either tablet based, liquid based or gas based depending on the pool. Either way, it is bleach-based (sometimes literal bleach gets dumped in smaller volume bodies like hot tubs when the chlorine is off). The pool I worked at, which was newer used liquid injection, and I would imagine this is true of most newer facilities (gas is undesirable as it can leak and kill people because it is odourless - some older pools still have this set-up though). Tablets are more common in backyard pools, and it's possible that these might contain gluten in some form (I have no idea and have never checked).  For reference, the concentration of chlorine in a swimming pool should be between 0.5-5 ppm, depending on the pool temperature and your region (lower for colder pools, higher for hot tubs).  So, I guess my opinion would be that a public pool is most likely pretty safe from a gluten perspective. Chlorine (or rather, the volatile gases resulting from the reaction of chlorine with biological waste in the pool) is an irritant though - occupational asthma rates in lifeguards and swimmers is quite high. Some people are more sensitive to this than others. My dad cannot swim anymore because he becomes ill for a week with severe upper respiratory symptoms (open water swimming is ok). I get similar, but less severe symptoms (part of the reason I don't swim anymore, sadly). Not sure what symptoms you experienced, but something to consider. http://www.ncceh.ca/documents/practice-scenario/pool-chlorination-and-closure-guidelines
    • I look back at photos from a few years ago now and can see the inflammation in my face. I spent decades with my body fighting constantly without my really being aware. Freaked me out when I realised! Few things to think about: If up to 1% of pop are celiac, at much as 6% could be NCGS - further reading here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117969-non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity-a-resource/ NCGS can present in the same varied ways as celiac - Not just or even primarily gastro related. I get back pain, chest pain, skin problems, eyesight problems, anxiety, depression, balance issues, nerve tremors and twitches etc. etc Try to treat these next months as a special case. Dial your diet back and eat really basic and simple. I lived on omelettes filled with veggies, huge green salads with olive oil and cider vinegar as dressing and a very simple evening meal with maybe some meat and rice. I ate as little processed foods as I possibly could. So try and avoid sauces, anything in a box really.  Your aiming to help your body heal and to reduce the amount of ingredients going in to the basic safest foods. Eat clean and healthy and avoid any possible gluten source. Spend a bit of time learning about hidden sources of gluten too. This thread will help:  https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/   Final point. You may like me eventually have to live life without gluten and without the comfort of a diagnosis that says precisely why. This is not always easy, but what you learn about your body in the next 3 months of this trial could help you to do this. Keep the diary, note your reactions and hopefully when you see the Rheum in 3 months you'll have conducted your own science experiment and have the data you need to make a good decision. Best of luck Matt  
    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • Hey, I am learning also...make sure you are taking a good multi-vitamin...gluten-free of course.  I have had a few "charlie horse" pains in my thighs and am taking an extra B12 tablet...If you have an ALDI grocery store nearby they have lots of gluten-free items snacks and frozen.  Vitamins will help...you are not getting enough nutrients with what you are eating.
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
