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!!!

    • Hello and welcome You've found a good site for advice and support.  Google suggests there is a link between EoE and Celiac, but at the moment that seems to be as much as anyone knows: https://www.emaxhealth.com/12410/celiac-disease-increases-risk-eosinophilic-esophagitis https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-96 Although it's not true that having one means you have the other.  You may want to read this thread for the experiences and ideas of others here who have experienced Burning Mouth Syndrome: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/106704-burning-sensation-in-mouth/ There were lots more gluten and BMS articles, so if a direct link hasn't been made, there's food for thought there along with some interesting thoughts on B and Iron deficiencies and possible additional food intolerances. No please don't. If the biopsy is inconclusive they may want a second one or further blood tests (you don't mention if they already did these?). Once you eliminate gluten from your diet these tests are inaccurate. That's not to say you shouldn't trial the diet, just make sure with your doctor you only do so once tests are complete. I'd add that even if you test negative you have nothing to lose from trialling a gluten free diet and as someone who did test negative I highly recommend you do, but only once testing is done! In the meantime, start a food diary. Log what you eat, when, and how you feel. Just short notes but make it a habit and try to capture everything you put in your mouth.  Build a record that you can use to find patterns. Maybe a trigger for the BMS will become apparent over time. Best of luck    
    • Funny you should ask about Lectins because I am currently recovering from a recent run in with some pinto beans.  After reading soaking longer than overnight helps break down those Lectins, I soaked them for twenty-four hours  Then I cooked the spots off them!  And still, they have wreaked havoc in my tummy.  Ugh!   So while recuperating, I did some research.  While cooking can break down some of the lectins, the only way to get rid of them completely is to cook them in a pressure cooker.  I was surprised to find that Lectins are histamine releasers!  Lectins make Mast cells release all their histamine.  Aha!   The red wine and balsamic vinegars and the bottled lemon juice are all high in Sulfites.  Sulfites are histamine releasers, too.  Apple cider vinegar is lower in Sulfites.   Lectins stimulate the autoimmune system: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25599185 More on Lectins and autoimmune diseases: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1115436/ And for Enis' affinity for chocolate nibs...(as well as my own)... Chocolate is a source of copper.  Copper deficiency causes neuropathy.   My neuropathy has gotten worse recently and my chocolate cravings have increased.  Hmmmm...... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 More info on copper http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/minerals/copper So...I'm wondering if I've neglected taking copper along with my calcium and magnesium.  I'm starting supplementing this week. Is copper in any of your protein powders, Enis?   I hope this helps.
    • I have neuropathy. Mine is worse with cold. My hands and toes get so bad I cry. I don't know what to do to make it better but just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I hate feeling alone with this disease.
    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
    • Do EoE and celiac disease generally come in tandem?  Does having one necessarily mean having the other? Had an EGD today expecting to have an entirely different outcome.  A short history: Lap Band placed 10 yrs ago with a weight loss of 173-ish lbs. Am a 47 y/o F experiencing uncontrolled vomiting, several times a day, and abnormal, unwanted continued weight loss. Too thin IMO, at 133. Experience random and lengthy bouts of burning (scalding,  really)  mouth syndrome (which I believe is a diagnosis recognized only by those experiencing it, and has not an official diagnosis of anything... yet). At the urging of my children and my parents alike, all of whom see me wasting away before their very eyes, and concerned for my well-being (if not my life),  I began looking for answers. Assuming my answer would sound something like this... "let's remove your lap band immediately". Problem solved.  Not so.  Lap and in perfect condition and placement, and not the cause of any restriction whatsoever, as all fluid was removed 3 yrs ago. Food from over 12 hours previously ingested was still hanging out in the lower portion of my esophagus.  Dr. susoects a high concentration of eosinophils and EoE and/or celiac disease is also suspected.  4 samples have been sent for biopsy.  I knew nothing of either of these two diseases until 2 hours ago, and I am, at best, confused.  Lots of info to digest. Should I begin eliminating wheat, dairy, eggs... Etc. prior to biopsy results? Or wait for Dr. orders? History of Grave's (mom), and Hashimoto's (sister). I've had asthma and chronic bronchitis and pneumonia since childhood. Any  and all info/help/suggestions are more than welcome. Also, feel free to let me know if I'm way off base and prematurely/overly concerned.  I'd be ok with that too, as I tend to overthink things.    Thanks!
