Shroomiekins, I forget if you can do broccoli, but I sliced broc stems crosswise into thin oblongs and fried them in a bit of bacon grease with garlic and paprika. It was just a bit of grease, and I had the burner turned really low 'cause I was doing stuff, anyway, they got really crispy and tasted fabulous. Now I'm trying to figure out what other veggies I can crisp up in that manner.

We had leftover chili over rice tonight. Sometime this week I'm going to try to make these: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Irish-Egg-Rolls/Detail.aspx

Only use rice paper wrappers in place of the egg roll wrappers and bake them instead of frying them (rice paper seems to tear up when I try to fry it).

Hey, thanks Jess, that sounds great, and thrifty too :P

It's also weird since I only started eating meat since my diagnosis, so I have 0 experience preparing meat.

I'm just curious, were you a vegetarian before, and then wanted more food choices so turned to meat? I was not a vegetarian but didn't eat a lot of meat. After my diagnosis I started craving it like crazy. I'm guessing since I was cutting out one major food source my body needed fulfillment from something else. I still eat small portions of meat, but my meat repertoire has greatly expanded.

Anyway, dinner tonight is quinoa tabouli from Bob's Red Mill: http://www.bobsredmill.com/recipes_detail.php?rid=927

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's meal ideas!

I was alone on Saturday and wanted something just for myself so I made Salmon in Rice Papers wrappers with rice and a delicious dipping sauce made from soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, brown sugar and rice vinegar. Had a few that night and tightly covered and refrigerated the rest. For Sunday's dinner I sprayed a pan with some butter flavored non-stick spray and browned both sides for 3 or 4 minutes. This gave the wraps a wonderful flavor and texture. This recipe is so versatile because you can add any veggies you can tolerate like small amountes of shredded carrots, chopped green onions, chopped mushrooms, toasted sesame seeds, baby spinach leaves etc. I love making these rolls as appetizers too.

That sounds really good. I have done something similar with chicken instead of salmon. I also sometimes put cellophane rice noodles or bean thread noodles in the wraps to vary the texture. I love how you can do just about anythign with rice papper wrappers and the results are usually good cold for lunch too!

I agree. This is such a versatile method of cooking. I only discovered it about a year ago. I use the wraps if there is a little leftover food from dinner, I just add some rice and make some rolls and then take them to work the next day. I think I like the taste and texture after frying them in non-stick spray. The wrapper becomes tender and crispy. I bet with rice noodles or bean thread noodles the taste would be excellent. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yummmy, do you have a recipe? I can't do dairy so coconut milk should be great.

I put sliced celery, carrots, green pepper, green onion, cauliflower in the crock pot with a couple cups of chicken stock and cooked it on high for about two hours (also threw in salt, pepper, and garlic powder). I also put in about a cup of cooked bacon (maybe three strips cut up). I then poured in a can of coconut milk and a splash of white wine, sprinkled with smoked paprika, and cooked for another hour. Finally laid a slab o' frozen salmon on top and cooked for another hour or so until the salmon was mostly cooked. I peeled off the skin and stirred the bits in. The salmon finished cooking as the chowder cooled.

Veggies are crunchy. If you like soft veggies in your chowder, cook it longer before adding the coconut milk. Don't overcook the salmon.

Sometimes for parties we do a spring roll bar. Just put out dishes of fillings, a plate of the wrappers and a pan full of warm water and everyone makes their own. It's pretty easy to prepare and a unique treat that people don't even think about it being "special diet" food.

I like mango in mine and dipped in a sweet chili sauce.

What a great idea! I've done taco bars and loaded baked potatoes bars before. I'm going to have to try this next party. My only prblem is I don't know how to make very many types of sauces yet for dipping. I make a spicy peanut butter based sauce and a faux soy-ginger-honey sauce using coconut aminos instead of soy. I will have to figure out how to make a sweet chili sauce next. Do you happen to have a recipe or do you use bottled? I wish I could find more bottled Asian sauces that are dairy/soy/gluten AND seafood free. I can eat fish but I don't risk any sauce with fish in it because sometimes they can be shellfish based. One of these days I'm going to try making my own fish sauce.

Tonight I made 'Salmon with White Chocolate Sauce'. Served it with fresh asparagus. The recipe is on a site called cacaoweb. The recipe is easy and fun to serve. I did not have any fish broth so I just used chicken broth. Worked fine. I used cornstarch in place of the flour. I mixed the cornstarch in a little cold water when I added it.

I've put chocolate in chili before but nothing else til last week. I did an 'Everything Chocolate' Dinner Party: Chocolate Covered Bacon, Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Chocolate Balsamic Dressing, Chocolate Flank Steak with Pineapple Salsa and of course a Chocolate Shamrock Cake (yellow cake with mint, topped with Hot Fudge Sauce and whipped cream). I was surprised at how good the Flank steak and salad were. Go ahead and try something. I found all the recipes online.

Tonight I fixed oven-fried chicken using Zatarain's Seasoned Fish-Fri (Crispy Southern Style) and Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries.

I would never have thought of using that type of breading but read it in Living Gluten-Free for Dummies (Danna Korn).

    • Congratulations!  😊
    • KALE! It really is a super food. Lots of Vit C as well as other vitamins & minerals. Now I know you wanted something to drink but I'm just saying kale is hard to beat for nutrition. You can add it to liquids but yes, it does tend to have a strong flavor. As far as OJ goes, I rarely ever drink it & that includes pre-diagnosis. Every time I have tried bought OJ, it just turns me off, doesn't taste good. Actually it tastes fake to me. I did grow up where citrus grows & we were always eating oranges right off the tree or squeezing them for fresh OJ. It's hard to appreciate the store bought stuff when your palate knows the real thing.
    • Optimistic! (Insert jumping up & down with joy emoji here) You are doing GREAT!!!    Kudos!
    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently. Bit of a list here from stuff I take and others https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/ PS if you new to this diet check out the 101 thread will help you out alot avoiding CC https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ I would help you out with foods but the EU/UK area I am not that familar with and sourcing I am sure some of our other members can help you out.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
