Last day of whole30 today, and feeling great even though the time of the month is due :).

Tomorrow, cheese :) :). Oh, and weigh in...

Tonight's dinner:

I've got a Turkey breast on the rotisserie

spaghetti squash

maybe some peas for a change?

I am so proud of you, MW. ;) You never wavered once in your resolve. (you know I had to mix it up a bit when I had to delete the high histamine foods, but you supported me too!) and so, I am very excited for you that you have reached your goal.

You must need a new belt by now (you can only poke so many new holes in it)!

Good on you, girl!! whoohooo!

Do let me know how that cheese tastes!! (I still can't have that ) but I may have a bite of two of vanilla ice cream

I'm using left over chicken that I Roasted yesterday and making chicken fettuccine Alfredo. Another of my favorite. Meals. And I got these garlic and herb bagel crisp things for the side. Then mixed fresh fruit for desert.

Yummers.

Leftover soup. Today is a long school day, so no time to cook. It'll probably be better second day anyway.

Mmm I like 2nd day soups and stews.

Not sure about dinner yet, but nearly had chaos at kids teatime. We had their friends round, and I checked if there was ice cream in the freezer, did a big ' who wants ice creeeeeam?' only then to discover that it was in fact a very nice frozen stew in an old tub. Whoops. Yogurt is good, but not quite the same. Luckily they were all having fun and I got away with it...

Whew...that could have been cause for a kiddie uprising!! I'd have bawled my eyes out if you offered it, then said "sorry, none left".

:mellow: of course, I have put my yogurt in the freezer for a while and had "frozen yogurt"...sort of....

I have no idea what is for supper. At this point I am thinking a single serve bag of lime & salt popcorn and a huge glass of milk. Yesterday was the third day in a row of getting a half foot of snow off my Jeep, then sitting in an uncomfortable chair for something like 7 hours. I am just too beat for food. I guess the good news is that today we have some blue skies with a few puffy white clouds and it is super warm, it was already 35 when I went out for milk at 10 this morning.

Somewhere, deep down inside of me, there is excitement for you two. Maybe after a nap I'll find it. :lol:

Ok...perfect solution for L2T...my best bud is currently residing on a sailboat in the gulf of mexico....here is her latest blog -- oh and today's temp is 80 no humidity.

http://rockysoceanad...a.html?spref=fb

edited to add -- four cabin sailboat with a darn nice kitchen ;)

I'm typing this from the aircraft - I'm almost there! Shucks...it was all a dream. <_< Today was the same as yesterday at -34C and windchill making it -45C. Unless you have not been in -30 temps you have not experienced cold.

Love the sounds of 80F and no humidity and "...darn nice kitchen". Does it have a KA stand mixer? A Vitamix? :lol:

Last night I did dessert for first time in a long time (we don't need it). But our plums are ripe and they are those big meaty red ones, yummy thingers they are. So I did a plum crumble with cinnamon and O.M.G. I can't decide if it is best plain, with Greek yogurt, or with ice cream. :D

I certainly have. When i lived in MT it wasn't that uncommon to get it a few times a winter. I also experienced it a year and a half ago when i was still in the dorms at my school. Long story short, heat went out, then came back on a few hours later, then i heard a pop... ignored it... heard it again. I went to investigate and the sprinkler above my door in the hallway had water leaking out of it. Water flooded into my bath (on the other side of the wall from the hallway) and into the little hallway in my room. Got to clean that mess up myself because there was a bigger break in another one of the dorm buildings (several inches of water). The other "floodies" and i were set up in a hotel room for about 5 days while they cleaned up (and in my case, patched up the cealing in the bathroom and aired it out). Luckily, nothing of mine was damaged and my school decided to cancel all classes that day.

and did i mention i was the only one in my building that got flooded? Uhuh some luck huh? :lol:

This is why we moved to another state finally, so we could just visit cold, and then come home an hour and a half later to where it may frost but seldom snows. :)

It wasn't just the cold, it was the cold, the freezing rain ice storms in November-December that coated everything with a half inch of ice so you had to open every latch and gate with a propane torch, (and you just weren't going anywhere without 4whldr, I warmed my engine up once by building a charcoal fire underneath it to get the engine to start) the tornado warnings, the hail large enough to trash one's car, and the summer humidity with 95º F temps, and the alternate flooding and drought. The crazy neighbors were just the icing on the cake. I was talking about this the other day with the neighbors here, and they asked why does anyone live there, I said the land was pretty. We have really high summer temps here that would probably blow them away if they couldn't adapt, if the fire season and typical rainy winters didn't. I think a nice day is about 95º F in the summer, 80ºF feels chilly, because the temperature drops so dramatically at dusk. We seldom have "spring," it seems to transition immediately from when is winter going to be over, to time to irrigate because it's really hot. March can be a lot colder than January.

I still don't know what is for dinner. It is either leftover home made Indian Butter Chicken and rice, or scrambled eggs and homefries. All I know is that we had better eat some of that fresh pineapple for dessert. :P

Yeah we got about 2 or 3 inches. Enough to make me go slipping and sliding.

Soup again, the last of it. So heavenly. I'll have to pick up some more shell pasta for it now. It worked wonders! I cooked the pasta in the broth and it was heavenly (ancient harvest). I wouldn't do that with rice pasta though, i'd cook it seperate.

At least it is good for something besides annoying me! I'm hoping that Phil has some good news for us tomorrow morning and tells us that this winter crap is done with.

I've been inching up on my iodine, thinking that my DH outbreak was mostly due to a CC incident. Well last night my husband told me that popcorn isn't a proper dinner and I finally snapped and am testing. I broke down and flat out ate fish. I had a couple "breaded" filets in the freezer and I finally decided to find out if I can eat fish without dire results. Now... I wait.

Tonight, roasted chicken. And um... some sort of vegetable or something like that. Probably potatoes because roasted chickens mean gravy.

    • People are able to find a very old topic and add to it (bumping it up to current).  We need to remember to check the dates and realize that these people from 10 years ago may not respond.  Also, remember that product info, ma be even medical info, can change in that amount of time.
    • When I was changing doctors due to insurance issues, I got one doc who I told I had celiac, and had been gluten-free for 2 years. He ordered a blood test and said I DID NOT have celiac cause the blood test came back negative....I looked at him like it was crazy, told him course your not going to detect the antibodies in test if I am not eating it. Told him to go back to med school and never went back. Similar experience with another doctor around that time....funny memory glad I found one that knows about the disease to some extent.
    • ÖThe potential celiac or  NCGS  diagnosis is given to me by the Celiac researchEr.  I do not think it's official until after we meet again.  actually I have not heard of that doctors work. I will look it up and see if I can listen to an interview. Thanks for sharing.  some of the symptoms that I continue to have Had on a strict gluten-free diet or similar to what I have now  and some of them disappeared. Of course During that time I was thrown on Xanax and some Protonix even though I don't actually have acid reflux. So there may have been some symptoms that were caused by those medications but I've been off Of Them for months now.  I guess headed pressure would be one of the more prominent symptoms  that I still had on a gluten-free diet although it's much much worse recently well I'm gluten.  it was almost like I can feel a strange sensation in my gut and the head at the same time but it's nothing like what you would think it wasn't cramping it wasn't... I don't know how to describe it. it does not feel anything like sinuses it's a really strange feeling like my brain Is inflamed Or being squeezed.  When I first started getting it it scared the living crap out of me because I thought I was going to end up passing out. I would be afraid to drive alone with my young son. Now admittedly I was diagnosed with inflammation of the small intestine in late August and was gluten free throughout the fall but started eating it again in late December. So I may not have given myself a tremendous amount of time to heal from the August duodenitis.   Currently I have pain in the right rib cage area,  I also get a tremendous amount of pressure in that area mostly when I'm sitting. Kind of like when us pregnant women had a baby's foot stuck up in that area.  I get nausea on and off, some shortness of breath, dizzy,  when my brain gets that  pressure my eyes often feel it as well, and I get some transient numbness and tingling in my hands and oddly in my face.  last summer I had Random episodes of blood pressure drops as well. I would start to really not feel well and noticed that eating actually helped those episodes. I was exercising a lot At the time but ate constantly  and was maintaining my weight. One doctor theorized it might be my blood sugar dropping so I bought a monitor but I never caught that. The only thing that I did catch was when I bought the blood pressure monitor and started taking my blood pressure when these episodes were happening.   for the most part I had pretty good health up until about a year-and-a-half ago and a very strange six months or so about 13 years ago where a lot of neurological stuff happened as well. I had vertigo, visual disturbances, eye floaters, muscles twitching, ants crawling sensation on my scull, some really strange stuff. It lasted about 6 months and over time it just went away.  except for the eye floaters, they stuck around. I'm not particularly concerned about them it's just that they were not there one day and I had some visual disturbances and Bam there they were and they never went away. I have a half-sister with MS but we ruled it out for me at that time and we also ruled it out last summer as well.   I did the whole 12-week thing that they're suggesting for your daughter. We figured the six weeks wasn't long enough.  For the most part other than a few weird things I honestly didn't get strange symptoms until the end of the six weeks so 12 weeks made sense. I think I actually ended up doing 10 weeks before the biopsy This time. Nothing but the increase in IELs.  I know they only biopsy the duodenum and I wonder sometimes if it's not just lower down. But with the negative blood work except for that one random test I don't know if it's really worth pursuing any more testing at this point. I'm so tired.  I know my brother is seronegative but that's pretty rare although I have no idea whether or not they've ever done a study on if that happens to be familial.  I also would really like to know if people who test positive for TTG 6 have any gut damaged. Because if that's the case perhaps there is no seronegative celiac disease  Have you read Dr. Fasano's work?  he writes back both Celiac and ncgs.  How long are you doing your challenge for again?  I know you may be anxious for answers as well but my suggestion just from personal experience would be to go as long as you can. 
    • I should qualify that I'm actually consuming the equivalent of 1-3 slices of bread in the form of vital wheat gluten. Sometimes I have bread, if I'm eating out. But I don't really want all of the carbs and I want to demonstrate that it actually IS the gluten causing the problems and not a Fodmap issue.  My reaction to bread and my reaction to the gluten are the same.  I'm actually shocked at how quickly things have changed. My hair is starting to thin again (boo hoo 😩), and my stools are completely different and it's only been about two weeks. The headache and dizziness and nausea are the worst.  Ennis, you are right. You would think that all of these symptoms would show on blood work. Grrr. I'm hoping that the GI I'm seeing on June 7th will run a preliminary full celiac panel.  It will only be 4 weeks by then.  Will it show something?  My sister has her PhD in immunology and I remember her saying how difficult research in immunology is because you need clearly high antibodies to demonstrate anything. 
    • I am going to have to remember this: "Doctors who fail to notice there are recalls out on their God complex". Brilliant! I'm wondering what symptoms failed to resolve?  All of them?  Some of them?  Neurological ones?  I'm sure you have read Dr. Hadjivassilou's work. I listened to an interview with him and he stated that neurological ones can take a year, and even small amounts of CC set you back. So that is something to consider.  jmg's advice is so sound. Thank you! NCGS - grrr. That one really annoys me. My daughter was first brushed off as Fodmap issues because she also had SIBO.  No one believed me that the SIBO and gluten reactions were not the same.   So she was told it's probably NCGS which is likely really a Fodmap issue.  Resolve the SIBO and she can go back to gluten. No.  Now that she is SIBO free, the neurological symptoms REALLY show through. But she also has terrible stomach pain when accidentally Glutened. Because of the neurological symptoms, now the GI says hmm, she could have celiac but just wasn't far enough along to test for it. Does she want a 12 gluten challenge?  What part of she loses the use of the right side of her body didn't you understand?  No gluten additional challenge for her.  But I have now noticed my reaction and my history of headaches and anemia and unexplained weight loss and hair thinning and stress fractures. So I'm going through the gluten challenge. It's for me, it's for my daughter, it's for  my niece and nephew who all have early symptoms that I recognize but my sister won't take seriously.  And I'm running it as a bit of an experiment.  I have eaten a low Fodmap diet for a year because of my daughter's SIBO. I purposely added high Fodmap foods first to see what happened (no gluten).  All good. I added bread, noted the reaction. I added JUST vital wheat gluten. Exact same reaction as bread.  In fact right now I'm pretty much just doing the gluten that is equivalent to a couple pieces of bread, eating bread or pasta when I occasionally go out. I am NOT going to have them tell me it's not gluten when it clearly is.  It seems that certain celiac research centers have all of their eggs in the NCGS/Fodmap basket at the peril of their patients.   Again, ironic truth, good luck with the Gluten-Free, give yourself time and be patient.  I can tell you that strict gluten-free was more than I initially thought. It took some time before we eliminated all of the CC. I was personally shock at how little it took to cause problems. I would definitely like to know how you are doing. So many people move off of the boards and I wonder how they are doing.
