I made boneless skinless chicken thighs again and some broccoli, then did up a quick cheese sauce and served it over baked potatoes.

Those burgers sound delicious!

I am happy to report that my first ever fried chicken (yes, ever) turned out freakin amazing. The only thing between me and a second piece was thoughts of buttoning my pants tomorrow. :ph34r:

I'm trying a new recipe, Cuban-style pork and sweet potato stew. It's done in a slow cooker and counts only 7 points on Weight Watcher's. Sounds like a winner, but I'll let you know later. I'm doing a black bean and corn salad with it.

We have become tired of the same old stuff, so I am trying to spread out to different cultures. I am "deep South" so I have found most of the ways to alter comfort food like fried chicken, mac and cheese, and all those garden vegetables with cornbread. Thai is easy and usually I don't even have to modify the recipes. Since someone told me about Tinkyada pasta, I have done quite a few Italian dishes.

My great revealation is that if I make a game of it, this gluten -free business is not so bad. Beats the heck out of being sick!

Mmm. That sounds good , let us know how it goes :)

I have my eye out for a good Thai green curry recipe if anyone has one :) :)

Making it fun is definitely the way to go. I like finding a new ingredient and trying it lots of ways. I can't get enough sprouts at the moment...we have pork tonight, probably stir fried ( with sprouts if Mr Mindwarp isn't home, without if he is)

Carnitas brewing in the crockpot - smells good.

Mixing flavors -- have some left over corn bread so going to make regular stuffing, but throw in a bit of green chili.

For me japanese sweet potato fries and pork without peppers.

Just registered - well waitlisted for Chemistry and Biology -- crazy I am voluntarily signing up for courses I successfully avoided in Business School -- here's hoping everyone on the waitlist gets in :D

BTW, it was a ridiculous -10 this morning, so you would be thrilled living here. Me? not so much <_<

Dinner tonight:

Roasted chicken

Smashed potatoes for the hubs

Green beans (and I made a few extra sweet potatoes last night so I'll fry them up in coconut oil for me.)

It may take me weeks to introduce all those ingredients on my elimination diet, but so worth it. Everyone has to have a goal, right? :)

My elliptical is right on the other side of my desk, so I actually can see it over the top of my monitor. I have been glaring at it all day. Evil torture device. It feels good to be able to be able to exercise but I'm not fond of the whole getting used to it thing. Can we both just hide in closets until our bodies adjust?

I'm too used up to cook, I'll oven the 2 pieces of fried chicken that survived last night intact and make some mashed potatoes to go with it and some corn. I hardly think I'll be suffering. :D

You're welcome. It will be worth the wait!

Dinner tonight is pork burgers with my green tomato chutney, steamed potatoes (sweet potato for me) and carrots, green salad.

Lightly curried chicken and veggies over white rice. I used leftover chicken that didnt make it into the cheese sauce last night, needed something quick and easy since I watched my little cousin today and I don't think I have ever been so happy to have a child go home.

I shoulda been at your house last night! That sounds sooooo good.

We're having a heatwave. It was up to 40 today. I had to go out this afternoon and just wore long sleeves and completely skipped a coat. This is of course following our extremely rare freezing rain storm yesterday.

Pork tonight. Pigs are such magical creatures. BBQ loin, mashed taters, garlic fried green beans. My husband is pretty sure that it is green bean fried garlic. Good thing he doesn't mind the smell, and I can be 100% sure he is not a vampire.

Tonight I made Creamy Shrimp and Grits with large stone ground grits. Sauce included thingers such as white wine, garlic, lemon juice, tomatoes, chipotles en adobo... For something green and relatively healthy (!) I added peas.

And for dessert I made Chocolate Pots de Creme for my dear husband. Talk about decadent and truffle-like.

Plus we had more bacon candy and homemade ginger ale.

Had to update and thank my hubby --

I didn't feel like preparing anything for me...so he heated coconut oil....added baby brussel sprouts....then skinny broccoli -- always forget the name of the thin baby stuff -- then added diced salmon jerky!!!! finished off with a few green onions and dumped on top of zu-noodles and mixed :D

One happy foodie here -- hmmm I wonder what he is angling for?

    • Update: for most accurate results, I am eating one piece of white wheat bread a day and am hating the symptoms. Less than two weeks until the endoscopy so I'm hanging in there.
    • Gaerty, I am glad to hear that you've ruled out the worst stuff. That at least helps clear any anxiety or worry you might have. I know that would clear up mine. I have good news! About three days ago my splinter hemorrhages cleared up 100%! The one that was on my right thumb was long and was there for about 2 to 3 months. I started taking this Vitamin C supplement 1000 mg once a day about 3 weeks ago. Whats crazy is that on the day I started the Vitamin C I noticed a small hemorrhage cropping up on my left thumb. It was very small. By day 7 of taking the vitamin C the one on the left thumb started growing out. By the second week I noticed the one on the right thumb shrunk drastically and by the end of week 3 they were all gone. By day 10 I also started taking 25mg of iron because all my muscles keep twitching. My B's and Magnesium came back good 5 months ago. I heard low iron can cause that symptom as well. So thought I'd give it a try.  I am not sure if it was a combo of the C and Iron or just the C that helped clear the splinter hemorrhages but for sure it was one of those things because they are the only things I have changed recently with supplements in the past 30 days.  
    • The nasal spray is safe, per the 2017 gluten-free drug list, but check the list as there are a few different manufacturers.   http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/newlist.htm Claritin is fine.   Get a Nedi pot.  Helps tremendously.  It is safe.....100% gluten free.  Just use pre-boiled and the cooled water.  
    • Thanks Ravenswood. I need the strength and encouragement to keep going. The last sessions fall out was 4 days of my body revolting on a nervous system level.  I'll look into your acupressure book suggestion. I have done sinus acupressure for myself and my daughter for years but did not explore more.  In the past when gluten-free my fibromyalgia symptoms improved but since they come back the concern is it might be actual fibromyalgia.  After 2016 I found out I have Barrett s esophagus, fibromyalgia, additional food intolerance plus the gluten. I had in my head I was ncgs and it was all related to  that and leaky gut that occurred after my challenge., So I wasn't prepared to digest all the above. Pun intended. Thanks for the encouragement Awol
    • So I'll try to keep this short and sweet.  I'm a 25yo male and have had GI issues for about 7 years. Through many years and many doctors visits, I've gotten potential diagnoses of IBS, post-infectious IBS (d/t a Giardia infection in 2014), small intestine bacterial overgrowth, GERD, and even a strong suspicion of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis). I've had two colonoscopies (no biopsies taken) and one EGD (biopsies only taken of STOMACH which showed chronic gastritis, not small intestine). Pretty much all of my tests have come back "normal."  I'll start by saying that back in 2014ish my blood results for Celiac were negative. My GI symptoms vary and fluctuate greatly... When I'm really struggling, I'll have chronic diarrhea, debilitating reflux, hours of burping after eating anything, epigastric and lower right quadrant abdominal pain, severe fatigue (nearly passing out), migraines, awful brain fog / depression, unilateral eye pain and photophobia, mouth ulcers, glossitis (tongue inflammation), and occasional bloody mucus in my stool if I'm extremely flared.   So my GP recommended I try a gluten-free diet after my IBD panel came back as negative. I reluctantly gave it a shot. I was gluten-free for about 2 months - slowly but surely, my chronic diarrhea relented, fatigue lifted, and my reflux nearly disappeared (to the point of considering stopping my omeprazole). Since eating gluten-free is so difficult, I decided to try a 3-day gluten challenge to see if gluten truly was the culprit. I ate gluten products 2-3 times/day for 3 days. It made my reflux a bit worse and gave me some pain, but nothing severe. My tongue however started progressively burning/stinging that week.  The BAD symptoms came about 2 weeks after my first gluten exposure... My acid reflux became MUCH MUCH worse, despite medication. I lost about 7 pounds over 3 weeks from not wanting to eat. I had much more abdominal pain. My tongue became very inflamed and sensitive to eating/drinking. I got mouth ulcers. I became very depressed, irritable, and brain-fogged out of NOWHERE. I was nauseous and having headaches. It was NOT fun. That's when I thought, "Ok, I am definitely more sensitive to gluten than I thought." That was about 6 weeks ago and my stomach is still feeling the effects of those 3 days. So, my questions: Has anyone experienced a similar story? Has anyone had lower GI bleeding with celiac? For those who have Celiac, are your symptoms typically delayed like that (2-3 weeks)? I know NCGS is supposed to have much more immediate symptom-onset. Has anyone tested negative to blood work, but positive on small intestine biopsies?
