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.

I love this one too:

    • Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than the moment when you're in the middle of it. I forgot to mention, yeah, I have had a full vitamin, mineral, and general blood panel done and everything came back normal. Regardless I still supplement with a good (and expensive) multivitamin plus sublingual D3 and B12 every day, and naturally I scrutinize the labels on those and everything else for anything even non-gluten that sounds fishy, including the possibility of CC at the factory. I guess it will just take longer to stabilize.
    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).
