I thought it might be fun if we had a thread where we shared what we're cooking up for dinner:) I am not an experienced cook so coming up with gluten free menus for me and my boyfriend feels like a challenge. It's also weird since I only started eating meat since my diagnosis, so I have 0 experience preparing meat.

Tonight I'm going to try that Tinkyada spiral pasta with some gluten-free pasta sauce and gluten-free meatballs I got from TJ's.

I love Tinkyada brown ride spiral pasta. I like to stir fry some zucchini, onions and red peppers and then put it in with the pasta sauce and pasta. It makes a great fast meal

On tonight's menu is gluten free nitrate free lamb sausages, baked sweet potatoes, boiled cauliflower and cabbage salad. For the cabbage salad I chop green cabbage, green onions, fresh cilantro, diced avocado and mix with lemon juice, sea salt and olive oil. Simple really.

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! b%$@#slap2.gif

I have to disagree with you here! Wolfie is always eating her broccoli and stews. If, once a week, she wants to eat cake only for a meal.....I say ENJOY! No one thinks its odd to eat pancakes for a meal. Not much diference in my mind.

corn meal

Dad! Karen is being a poopyhead again!!!!!!!!!

You guys are so helpful :)

In all seriousness, i do eat quite a bit of protien every day (anything from meat to peanut butter to cheese, etc).

Okay, hon. Sorry, not meant as a nag. it's the teacher/mama hen in me. Your brain needs protein and I know you're working hard this semester!

Just for moment there I thought Irish was going to wow us with a bacon cake recipe, thus fulfilling all our cake and protein requirements in one easy step.

I may not be eating it at the moment, but I am certainly pro cake. :)

You know I love bacon. BaconEmote.gif

You know I love cake. cake-smiley-emoticon.gif

I do not really think I want them together. dunno-smiley-emoticon.gif

Maybe I'm wrong and it tastes great, but I'm just not that intrigued by it.

I think my hormones are all out of whack lately, one day I desperately want a donut

(the soft kind with chocolate icing....) and then it's pizza and then it's pasta alfredo

and then the next day it's something else. I'd think I was pregnant if that were physically

possible..... :ph34r:

Dinner tonight: Homemade chicken soup, also Chebe and some cheddar. Chebe

definitely makes being grain free a LOT easier.... I wake up every day and remind

myself, 'At least you still have dairy. At least you still have dairy.' It helps!

Hmmm. Trying not to think about dinner. Been sick today, could be bug, period stuff or the big g. Whichever, I don't have any of my normal go to foods so a bit stuck. Cooked some rice, but don't fancy it yet. Maybe egg later. I think it may be my own fault for raising the bacon cake thing, eugh.

Still cheerful, broadly, but a bit less smug :(

oh no, sorry, hon. :unsure:Hope you feel better today! Probably just a bug of some sort?

I'm going with some homemade turkey soup today.

No rice or noodles though, just vegs.

The hubs has decided he wants to lose 20 lbs. (he has a bit of "middle" from the holidays)

and since he works out religiously at the gym, it must have come from all the festivities.

Since I still need to lose my "freshman 30" (i.e. "hello, your gut is absorbing now, so watch out--oops, too late!")

looks like we're sticking to the whole 30-ish plan. One exception: the occasional bowl of gluten-free oats.

I love them, I just got them back ........ and I'm not giving them up. :D No booze, no legumes, no dairy, no other grains and no high histamine foods does not leave me with much else. to choose from, so I'm "punting" a lot.

We push on!

Ah, hormones! Tried some rice, so fingers crossed. I was going to reintroduce Friday, so not a very clean day to try, but with 2 little ones due home gotta do something....

I think I will try gluten-free oats in a few weeks, I would love those back. Really pleased for you IH.

You folks here never cease to be an inspiration. Your stories of strength and recovery are amazing. (I can always blame the hormones for gushing a bit...)

Not sure if us dinosaur types are inspiring---- or just plain stubborn and unwilling to accept NO! for an answer. <_< :lol: In my case, I go by the "plan B, C, D or even E" rule in life

BTW: I noticed you added the Albert Einstein quote to your sig line. We're fans in this house.

And that's a good one!!

My other fave is 'Imagination is more important than knowledge'. And he was a fellow dyslexic, so bonus points there too. And stubborn is good.

    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up. 
    • Are you substituting something for the PPI?    I'm not sure what meds will mix well with it, but you could ask the pharmacy or Dr. for advice on what might work.   I'm thinking you stopped something that may be helping in some ways, and are now allowing your symptoms to return.   If so, it makes sense to find something else to help with symptom control.   I don't know what products you have there.   We have Tums (calcium carbonate), Gaviscon (aluminum hydroxide with magnesium carbonate), Pepto and Kaopectate (same product), and Gas-X (simethicone).    I believe all of these can be taken with PPIs, but do check.    I don't know that Pepcid (Famotidine) can be mixed, but you could check that, too.   The Gas X really helps with the bloating and odd pains, as it breaks up the gas.  The Tums seems to help neutralize the acid and upset stomach / stomach pain.  These two are my mainstays.  You may have other products that could be as effective. Have you tried mixing bone broth with cornstarch or gluten-free flour to make a gravy?  Mix in some ground beef, chicken, or turkey, add some gentle veggies (carrots, or maybe a can of Chinese veggies?), a little bit of gentle spices for taste, and then put over gluten-free pasta or white rice.  Make a chicken sandwich with gluten-free bread.   Can you tolerate mayo?   Put a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and lemon juice on salmon, then coat with mayo and microwave.   Or mix some mayo with chicken or tuna for a chicken salad / tuna salad sandwich;  or eat just a scoop of it.   If you can tolerate dairy, Schar's newest version of table crackers are like saltines and are tasty.   If no dairy, try their breadsticks.  You could have either with soup or bone broth.   Schar's has enough fat to give you calories to help stave off weight loss, and you can add more by brushing a little butter on the crackers. You could try other casseroles with tuna or some lean ground hamburger.  Have you also looked at a possible new food intolerance?   I suffered for a few weeks before I figured out it was dairy for me.   Eliminating dairy wasn't enough.   I had to get rid of anything that might upset my stomach in order to start getting better.  I printed lists of low FODMAP, low acid foods, and low lectin foods, then selected only those foods that were on all 3 lists.   You might consider doing this with food lists that are right for you.  Hope this might spark some ideas!    
    •  I have a friend with MS, another with breast cancer and a third with RA.  At the same age my only problem is I cannot eat gluten!  So when I start getting frustrated about food I think about that and how lucky I truly am.  Once you get in the swing of it it gets easier and then you start to feel better which makes it all worth it.    Also when I first went gluten-free I read on this group about Mark's daily Apple and the Paleo community. I turned to that which was extremely motivating.  I've never seen so many people so excited about not eating gluten. It was a very positive energy and motivated me to find other foods to eat. Also, they love bacon! 
    • I know I needed the confirmation.  My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP.   It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him.  We do know that gluten makes him sick.  He has been gluten free for 16 years.   So, when my GI suspected celiac disease, I could not believe it.  I had no tummy issues at the time, but was anemic.  Had been my whole life and it was blamed on a genetic anemia and menstruation.  I knew what being gluten free meant and I did not want to have celiac disease.  But,   I got positives  on the DGP and my biopsy.    Nothing like seeing something in writing.  I showed that to my extended family who was in denial as well.   I had a shared household with hubby all those years.  But after my diagnosis and the fact my kid started making things in the kitchen, we all went Gluten Free.  Great kid, but I could not trust her with my health!  If you DD has small siblings, consider all going gluten free.  They can eat gluten outside of the house.  That is what my kid does.
