oh, and I cannot have bacon either super-sad.gif

Bacon is SOOOOO last year and overrated. Sorry - I have a hard time lying. When do you get to have bacon? Did I miss something?

Hodge podging it tonight. This morning I made yummy crispy Herbes de Provence crackers that I sprinkled with Maldon sea salt. Then I made a Syrian roasted red pepper, pomegranate molasses, ground toasted almonds, etc. dip. So, am having that with encore Sriracha lime chicken wings thingers. Throwing in some celery and carrot sticks. How's that for an unplanned meal?? Too much back pain today to worry about something elaborate. Tomorrow is a different story, though...

Will be pulling into condo about dinner time - guessing that the boneless chicken or the premade carnitas are the best choices - hoping the turkey fully defrosts for tomorrow night - I'm hungry - 300 miles of farmland leaves lots of time for daydreaming of food!

I broke out my daughter's Eat Like a Dinosaur cookbook and made the 50/50 bacon burgers and sweet potato fries out of it. Not missing the grains at all tonight!

In a month or so. (..a few posts back I explained I had to cut out high histamine foods.)

I had lamb patty and hubs had sausages.

I had sweet potato and he had yukon golds.

We both had asparagus.

Someday soon, I hope we can both eat the same things once more. :unsure: what a pain in the arse this is.

Ah...I missed the high antihistamine foods thingers. For some reason for about a week I have not been receiving notifications of posts of those I am following so find I am missing a lot of stuff. Haven't had the time (or more accurately, haven't MADE the time) to look into this issue more (I posted about it on another thread already).

That is a big negative - but can call upon my regular men to handle it for us ;)

Sorry a lot again to respond so late, I was sick and am sparing you from the sordid details.

Feb 17. WPB, FL, bring on the cabana (or regurlar) boys & come on down, y'all.

Hi all

made it back in, got shut out by some strange loop whereby I can log in on the PC but not my cell. Still not back on the cell, but at least I can sneak in here occassionally.

Last night was chicken, butternut squash, zucchini and mushrooms. I stirfried the alreadly cooked squash in with the other stuff - I love it like that, it kind of makes its own sauce. Lovely with pasta too (not that I get pasta for a while yet).

Down 2 belt holes so far, and gone from outside to inside hooks on my bra, so that seem to be working.

I'm surprised that Irish hasn't mentioned one of the key rules of the Whole30 - no SWYPO (Sex With Your Pants On). I had a sweet potato with coconut milk yesterday, and I think I was skirting preeeeety close to the boundaries there. :ph34r:

I am on a self imposed bacon ban, in addition to the no:

grain, dairy, legumes, sugar, white potatoes

I am also limiting fruit.I think I got me a great big ole sugar issue goin down here.....

I dod find a compliant proscuito last week, which makes me happy :rolleyes:

So, what kind of CHEESE are you all eating today? :o:unsure::(:angry::P

I was off the the doctor this evening. I love that they have evening appointments. Didn't feel much like cooking though, we broke out a jar of Christmas George and had some smashed taters and gravy. Yum! I was too busy doing 100 things to get my green beans cooking so I'll have some as a late night snack.

We name our holiday things, like turkeys, hams, etc. Our Christmas ham was George. He was huge, and we canned his leftovers. On the lids I labeled him G F George 2012. In my head whenever I see them in the cold storage I hear it in the old GI Joe theme song sort of way. I know it is probably lame, but it brings us no end of amusement. Home canned meats also make aaahhhhmazing gravy!

I don't really have anything special. Just pots for boiling and the general stuff, funnels, thingers to pick jars in/out of water, a massive stockpile of rings and jars. I just do it the way my grammy did. My MIL's husband is obsessed with trying to get me to add preservatives to everything and to use his pressure canner. Nope, not interested. I just smile and nod and make snarky comments in my head.

I sometimes don't think about the fact that when I'm online I'm not in my little bubble any more. This is a huge global community and even though I know exactly what I'm talking about I guess we all call stuff by different names so it can get confusing. Of course, I have this problem with my husband too so maybe its just me not making sense. :D

Tonight I burnt myself out in the kitchen. I haven't been happy with my shampoos/conditioners for a long time and finally said screw it. I am sick of going to a store, finding something I think I may like then jumping through 100 hoops to talk to a human about it. So I just made some. I did take the lazy way out and buy the castile soap, I can't be playing kitchen chemist with lye while taking care of my baby cousin. :ph34r: So we're having a lazy dinner, salads with grilled chicken and whatever bottled dressing I can find in a cupboard somewhere.

    • That doctor is delaying unnecessarily! If he's been sick for 2 months already, another 3 months is cruel and unusual.
    • IT could be many things, I find I have a gastric dumping issue with some meals, I know some food intolerance I have will trigger it. I know If I do not start my day with a big glass of hot liquid and magnesium and have it before a meal, that meal will sit it my stomach till it makes me sick and vomit it up 4-6 hours later. I know for me meats do not digest. they just sit in my stomach til I vomit them back up. Animal fats and certain oils do not digest same thing. just float in my stomach til I puke them up when they start going rancid in my stomach 4-6 hours later. I find digestive enzymes are a MUST. I take 2-4 times the suggested dosing, and even extra bromine with heavy protein meals.

      There is another issue where some people have weak stomach acid there for the stomach does not digest food nor dump it. If you have this issue then betaine hcl will help this. For me it was not my acid but a enzyme issue.
    • I am sorry that your daughter (and you) are experiencing this.  After diagnosis, celiacs need adequate follow-up care.  When was the last time her antibodies were checked?  Have they come down?  Are they still very elevated?  This link verifies what I said: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ By testing you can help rule out active celiac disease.  It can take most celiacs a year or years to recover from celiac disease and all the collateral damage that can come with it.   Then you might consider a dietician who is knowledgeable about celiac disease.  Often going gluten free is not enough.  People tend to just find substitutes for their already unhealthy food choices.  She should focus on fresh fruits, veggies, meat, nuts, dairy, legumes, rice, etc.  and avoid processed foods until she has really mastered the diet.  The learning curve is so steep!  Read our Newbie 101 thread found at the top of our Coping section.  It contains helpful tips.   Autoimmune thyroid is very common with celiac disease.  Be sure to have her thyroid checked and antibodies tested for the thyroid as well even if other thyroid lab markers are okay.   Besides the lack of periods, have her other symptoms improved?   I wish you both well!  As a Mom myself, I get the worry!  We want our kids to be safe and healthy!    I am glad you are championing her health!   Oh, did the rest of the family get tested even if symptom free?        
    • This might seem daunting but you will heal, you will be able to eat some foods again soon, but first you have to let go of some extras to speed up healing or your going to develop a few more issues your going to regret. Drop the processed crap, take your time cook whole foods from scratch. No sauces condiments, etc. Drop oats, do not deny it you know you feel edgy when you eat them, While your at it drop all grains, sugars, and carbs. Look up paleo diet, for now you can enjoy meat but if you keep on eating carbs you will loose the ability to eat meat period. You will also develop a corn allergy if your not careful, either the gluten CC or other complications best to limit corn intake and start working on removing it from your diet. Enjoy your grandmothers tamales once a month, learn to make them from her. You have or will develop something called ulcerative colitis, perhaps the paleo diet will prevent this or if you already have it it will save it from getting as bad as I know it did. PS Nunataurals pure powdered stevia, and eyrithrol will be your best friends but got easy on them too much will lead to gastric distress early on. And if you crave deserts like I know you will use nutvia coconut flour mixed with eggs for a base, use ground flax, and chia for thickening also. a little goes a long way and you have to let it set up a bit this will become a base for a lot of your food. Look at investing in a stone mill nut butter grinder, almond butter will be your best friend. To offset cost and make a road map out of life, develop grain free baked good and sugar free options. Artisan Almond Butters, etc. and sell them at farmers markets. You are meant to be a guiding light and to help others with this disease. Do your research look up Celiac.com, Get your own cook area, set up a small dedicated table with dedicated cookware else where, either your room or the bathroom. Let your mother have her kitchen and make your own this will ease family tensions. Invite her to learn how to cook in your area and stay safe. Practice with her and perfect your gluten free dishes early on for a successful chef job later on. You will need a small tabletop convection oven, rice cooker/crockpot/pressure cooker, microwave, nordicware cook ware, mixing bowels, spatula, freezer paper for work surfaces, etc. ALL NEW, DO NOT try to clean you old stuff IT WILL NOT WORK (trust me I tried it) Get a new blender and hand blender also took weeks to figure that one out.

      Supplement wise go look up lucky vitamin.com will save you tons of money. your probably feeling constipated still right? Get Natural Vitality Magnesium Calm and ease in to the dosing at 1/4tsp and ramp it up over the next few weeks, do not be discouraged if it gets really bad at first. Also look up Liquid Health, Stress & Energy and Neurological support they will be your life savers. Give up smoking now look up CBD oil, you will find it works much better for stress and anxiety attacks.

      If you have digestion issues look up enzymes from Jarrow, do not fear take 2-3times the does if you need them.
    • His diabetes educator is not an expert in celiac. IMHO the lets wait 3 months is cruel and unneeded.  Ask his GP if he will give the 'formal' diagnosis if you put him on the diet and those numbers go down with retesting in a few months.  Or ask for an immediate referral to a GI doctor knowledgeable in celiac. With numbers like that there really is no doubt about his need for the diet.
