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

Gelato!

Husband is making chile for dinner, because we finally ran out of the Indian curries we made last thurs/friday. Our 14 year old microwave is not wanting to start anymore, so we are having to boil water on the stove for coffee.... I managed to set off the smoke alarm doing this. :rolleyes: I would like to get a new mic just like the old one, and of course, now they are different, stylish, and fancier, which I do not need :P.

Now you're starting to sound like me. I took my old one in and had it fixed, paid almost as much as for a new one, because I liked it better :D

I know what you mean. My microwave does 40 things and we use 3 of them - time, one minute button and sometimes the power level when defrosting.

micros...ya mine died about two years ago...it was at least 20 years old...was great. hubby decided because of the age of our old one and i was whining about the new ones...he could bring home a jobsite jobby -- ewwwwww! Then I tried a cheap model...thinking simple is what i need...couldn't even pop corn for the teens.

saw a nice simple one at target...this conversation reminded me...i'm buying it.

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

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

Oh yeah. I have a pic of me where I look as if someone had injected me with air. Think the Michelin Man. Edema--even my knees were fat

when I was deathly ill and headed towards emaciated.

Now that I have reduced some of that inflammation? I look like I lost a lot of weight, even though the jeans are still a bit snug..

So, yes, I still have some "adipose tissue" (as Lovey calls it ) that needs to go.

As for the microwave, I confess I did not even own one until I met the hubs. He thought I was a dinosaur even back then. I like things simple and I adapted to this new toy in the kitchen. The one he had for so long did two things. defrost and timed heating. I liked it. Then, it broke. Had to "learn the new one". Have no clue what 3/4 of those buttons do and I really do not care to learn. I'm so "old school"--- I know.sigh

I mostly use it for the heat packs for my neck and back. :lol:

Oh, Mindwarp, that's a great attitude! Tomorrow is a new day. :)

I am making pasta with a delicious marinara sauce (homemade, of course). Smaller portions than in my previous life (up to yesterday). And a simple baby greens and arugula salad with "candied" pecans caramelized pear vinaigrette. No dessert - we are on a mission to lose this adipose tissue!

We have a blizzard bearing down on us, so I just made some rolls, and I am making bison chili for backup

and for dinner tonight:

Roasted chicken.

Sage stuffing with apples.

Sweet potato, carrot, apple and cranberry gratin

Butternut squash, goat cheese, leeks and hazelnut gratin

Tossed mixed greens, radishes, cukes, yellow baby tomatoes with champagne vinaigrette.

I can always reheat things on the wood stove if the power goes out and the generator does not start (or fails).

but if we lose the internet, well, I'll see you in a few days!

There's a reason to love the wood stoves :)

I kinda/maybe overcooked the pasta in my soup. Hard to tell really. It says not to, but i didn't see any difference. Maybe i hit it right on the mark? They were the ancient harvest quinoa shells by the way. I think it might be because they supposably desolve? Meh, no matter, still was good. :)

Considering I know the pain you are in, :(that's a lot of cooking, honey. I hope the doc can help you ASAP. xx

I am so sorry to hear this, sweet girl :(

My back and neck are squawking at me, too today. Dammit, this celiac-related pain just plain sucks. There, I said it. <_<

So, I got the Taza Chocolate Mexicano sampler for the hubs to try it. Early Valentine's gift. (made in a gluten-free facility near my hometown of Boston).

My honest opinion? Yuck. Everything tastes like pepper(even in the orange flavored one) and the texture is awful. Tastes like sandy grit in every bite. Just not rocking my world at all.

I am a purist, so take it for what it is worth. And to each his/her own. :)

Not good as chocolate for eating. On the other hand, if you grate a whole disk for a cup of hot chocolate, which I make with milk while the traditional way is in water (YUCK!!!) I like it just fine. I'm also pretty snobby about my chocolate, and it is quite a bit cheaper than I am used to so I didn't have particularly high expectations for it as food. I really only wanted it for hot chocolate anyway and will probably buy more for that purpose.

I've been kinda MIA lately I know.. but I couldn't resist the urge to talk about chocolate! I've been lurking but not posting, I feel like hell. In the past few weeks the issue with my left leg has escalated from painful to cry myself to sleep at night sort of pain. Only 12 more days until my Dr. appt. At this point I am barely a functional human being. I am somehow still managing supper most nights. When I just can't I have vast quantities of milk and fruit or something. There are times I'm lucky I can navigate the stairs to the kitchen, I seriously need an escalator. :D Tonight, because I'm some sort of masochist or something, I am keeping my promise to myself to finally attend the local support group. I sure hope there is food!

Logged on too late - will try the butternut squash recipe tomorrow :D

Huge batch of ribs almost ready to come outta the oven to the bbq - they were marked down as they needed to be used by Sat - no problem - family and neighbors will be happy to help use them up tomorrow.

Crazy day in SoCal today - son's HS called to say they were on lockdown then got email that our "home" mtn that is 130 miles north - was shutting down for safety - crazy both were triggered by the same guy.

    • Mine didn't count past 100 - so I was over 100.  When the numbers are that high, it means you have Celiac.  Slightly elevated numbers can sometimes be caused by other things.  Welcome to the club!
    • I recently took a blood test and went over the results with my GI doctor who will be performing and endoscopy and colonoscopy on me soon. I can't remember exactly what she said, but I believe she was talking about my IGA-TTG levels. She said the normal range was under 10 but mine was 639. I think she was talking about IGA-TTG but I'm not sure. For people who have done this test what were your high levels?  Thanks! Female, 16
    • I can not help you with the Candida  issues (except to advise reducing sugar from your diet and talk to your doctor about antifungals).  I can tell you that my folate and B vitamin levels were off the chart.  No, I did not have cancer, which is what you will find if you google).  Yes, I have autoimmune  issues and maybe I have the MRTHR gene (never tested....why bother?).  Instead, I gave up all supplements even those found in processed foods.   My lab reports are all normal after a year.    I am not deficient in anything at this time.   Vitamins and supplements are a good thing, but they are not for everyone.  There is no “one-size-fits all”.   Consider changing your diet to include just whole, unprocessed foods like the ones your Great-Grandparents ate.  Eat a varied diet full of vegetables, fruit, nusts, seeds, meats, fish and grains.  See if things improve.  Work in the Candida diet into this Whole Foods diet, but find out why you think you have a Candida issue.  This should be diagnosed by a medical doctor.  Systemic Candida is rare and is usually found in people with immune-related illnesses.   If you suspect celiac disease, get tested.  It is a simple blood test.  Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/        
    • It could be celiac disease related or not.  The fact is her antibodies are still elevated.  They have come down dramatically (great job!) and she has had some  intestinal healing, but she is not completely healed.  She probably needs more time.  She is under a lot of stress which is known to affect menstrual cycles even excluding celiac disease.   She has been malnourished (think concentration camps...extreme, but you get it)  and still is based on her eating habits you described.    She  is a student who is away from home and has to deal with celiac disease every single moment on her own.    Every bite of food must be checked.  That can be exhausting!  It will get better, but it takes time.  It can take a long time to heal.   The fact that it occurred when she stopped gluten is probably a coincidence.  It probably added even more stress.  Can you imagine a life-long dietary change?  Ever dieted?  How long did the diet last?   Give it more time for her antibodies to come down.  She is still being attacked. They are not in the normal range.    Most take a year or longer to heal.  Ask anyone here.  Read through forum comments.   How about baking her some chocolate chip gluten-free cookies and shipping them to her?  Or mail a fruit basket.  You both will feel a bit better.   Hugs!!!!
    • Done and wish you luck. I moved to a full on keto/paleo diet after also. This might be why it does not come back, once you get rid of it probiotics help keep it in check as they eat the yeast.
