CMw - 'Imagination is more important than knowledge'.

This is my youngest - brilliantly talented writer and artist - a born storyteller...he often doubted his intellligence because of his discalculia - finally got him to understand everyone has strengths and weakness - he'll be a great author one day - until then he will be found teaching middleschoolers with compassion because he understands struggling with traditional education for those with learning challenges.

Oops - proud mama off to wake the teen in question :)

This just in - say cheese! In the midst of my pity party last night I ate a piece of swiss cheese - granted not a great way to trial and about three months earlier than the plan - yet happy gut and mostly happy bod this morning. Might have to try another piece sometime soon when not having a fit.

Hope you are feeling better very soon!

That's still not doing what you want, hon. Try this, Colleen.

Then, choose the one you want and right click on it , then left click on "copy image". (I really had to think about that to explain it because even though I do it quickly now, it took me some time to learn--- and I hope it made sense)

I know. These pork shanks were calling to me - I never see them. So, when I did, they jumped right into my grocery cart! It was astonishing to see. And then the buttertarts - well, I'm going to housesit in the country for a week so thought I'd make my darling sweetheart something to remember me by.

And Day 1 starts tomorrow. I absolutely MUST lost these extra 30 lb of adipose tissue - I'm thinkin' it may help my back situation out, too. I'm still going to pull out all the stops with cooking but will make far better choices with serving sizes and eat smarter. One can "diet" and still cook fantastilicious food! ;)

You still have some left???? Shroom, you are a woman of exceptional willpower.Kudos!

No, no. Even with my willpower it would not last that long with "the great refrigerator raider" in the house. Made some more :D

Roast Baby Purple and Yellow Carrots with Miso Glaze

You are so right about the quinoa flakes. I had high hopes for them until they bit me back :ph34r:

And you say you live in the middle of nowhere at 30 below and somehow you come up with baby purple and yellow carrots :blink: I can remember mid-summer in Austin, Mn. (maybe it's better now) but in the whole produce section it was hard to find something that did not belong in the garbage :rolleyes:

That about sums up Upstate New York in winter. <_< A girl can only eat so many root veggies and squashes.

Cannot wait to get to Florida in a few weeks where can walk to the most amazing

produce market every morning and get the freshest veggies and fruits, then over to the fish market

for the fresh catch of the day (or just go catch one myself ) .

"Adipose tissue" makes it sound so much better than the "f--." word.

Yes, any weight we can take off the bones and joints is beneficial.

You know I'll cheer you on!!. I've got the same amount to lose ;)

Smart girl! We bought them at a farmer's market when in the city over the weekend. They had been kept absolutely perfect in soil and sand in a cellar. They are so pretty on the plate!

What looks like fat and makes you fat, but isn't fatty fat?

Answer: Edema. i.e., water, H20!!!

    • Two fantastic cities, have loved my time in each. Sadly the hash brownies in Amsterdam are definitely gluten filled and I suppose the cones of chips with mayo are a risk depending on what else they fry in them  so it'll have to be a night in the coffee shops Len   I think Pudim flan should be gluten free, Portuguese caramel pudding.  There are some fantastic Portuguese fish dishes that should be ok. Calde verde soup is another personal favourite. You can sample the Vinho verde of course. Portugal is one of my favourite countries, great people and Lisbon has some great sights to explore.   
    • The only information that seems to be available on gliadinx is from the outfit that sells it.  I'm very leary of these products that people are desperate for and which are highly priced. A product to deal with incidental ingestion of gluten is what we dream of, but supplements aren't regulated enough to avoid for-profit scams.  I was actually disappointed to see this website publish an article a while back that could be interpreted as endorsement of this product..  I'm waiting to see some independent analysis and support from the celiac medical community rather than dump a bunch of money to try it out.  There was another product several years ago making the same claim and it disappeared from the market.   And of course as already discussed, if it is effective, it would only be for incidental ingestion of gluten if taken when the food is being ingested.   But wouldn't that alone be life changing!
    • TexasJen - It sounds like we're in similar situations.  While I make every effort to avoid gluten in restaurants, I don't go nuts about it.  When in doubt, I aim for salads, and try to be careful with the dressings.  I will eat ice cream, but if I can't confirm it's gluten-free, then I stick with the basics (no cookies and cream or brownie bits, and yes, I'm aware that even then it may not be safe).  I'm not sure it's a good thing that I have very little in the way of symptoms, since it doesn't give me much of a warning that I'm doing harm. We're travelling to Amsterdam and then on to Lisbon.  From what I can see there are plenty of great gluten-free options in Amsterdam (bagels, pizza, etc), and I think enough that I won't go hungry in Lisbon, either. Thanks again, everyone, for all the feedback and ideas!
    • As a beer substitute Cider should be fine. You're ok with strongbow which is one of the most readily available. Magners is another option, that's typically in bottles. Kopparberg also ok. Be careful however that there are some products which look like cider but are actually a beer. Either find a mainstream brand you can stomach and stick to it or ask and google. Preferably in advance rather than on a night out when you want to forget all this B*llocks and have a good time  You can also ask or google in advance to see if there's a gluten free beer option. I was in a tiny place a little while ago and was astonished to see gluten-free beers available, turned out the barman was coeliac and made sure he had some in stock for when he was off duty  Coeliac UK insist that distilled liquor is fine and there are super sensitive people here who will back that up, but I'm like you, I didn't want anything from a gluten grain after I went on the diet, physics be damned!  As above, rum is an option. Also wine, you should be ok there also.   Be careful with post mix drinks. I avoid them because the combined nozzles are to my mind a risk, at least if there's anything gluten filled in the other feeds. Oh and be really careful about snacks. Walkers crisps for instance are in every sodding pub in the country but even the ready salted are to be avoided. If you've not yet joined Coeliac UK you should, even for one year to get the guide they produce. It will tell you what the safe brands are and it will be money very well spent. Bottoms up!   
    • As I understood it they help break down gluten in the gut. We were discussing them here very recently I can't find the thread where it was discussed however. I wouldn't use them to actively eat something with gluten, but I think if I were travelling I'd like to pack something like this to try and reduce the chances of cross contamination. Even if they only work on a placebo basis I'll take any edge I can! Anyway Len, I don't want to derail your thread any further, just something I remembered that may be of interest given your devil may care stance Matt
