Caught a bug that was going around. I've still sort of got it. :blink: I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It'll be a week tommorow that i've had it. Though, i have been feeling better, my stomach is taking its sweet time.

Good thing you have experience with such matters - hope you are full strength very soon - you'll need it with the overload of units this semester - take care :)

Encore bol.

And turns out yogurt is a no on the reintroductions. Might try dairy again in a few months.

Sorry to hear about yogurt -- just wanted to add -- make sure you try other dairy -- yogurt can be hard on the healing digestive tract for other reasons than dairy. I can't eat it because of my issue with high histamine/histamine inducing foods -- my damaged small intestine can't make the two enzymes necessary to regulate histamine....here are a couple links - just so your familiar with this random group of potential problem foods:

Hey, Lisa!! Looked like Dorner offed himself!

Unfortunately he took a couple more Big Bear police with him - asshat. Sad story from start to end, but glad it is done -- tired of them shutting down the roads to my sanctuary ;)

Thanks Ski

I have several of those symptoms, eczema, menstrual stuff, rhinitis headaches, and known reactions to red wine, beer, alcohol, chocolate cheese and yogurt, paprika included. And the list of things not to eat more or less describes my current food intake.

I am going to try taking the diet back to whole30 for a couple of weeks, then decide what to add or remove next.

I feel the need for an enormous spreadsheet (and maybe a week off...)

Dinner still far from my mind, might manage breakfast by 2pm :)

Yep...I had to use Excel to create a chart to track everything back when I was trialing...I'll send it to you...it's not complete because I just learned about the histamine issue this past Fall -- interestingly many of my one-off items were on the histamine no-no list.

For Goodness Sake....

If anyone is seeing the nonsense that our friendly news vultures are putting out regarding the blaze that ended Dorner....Angeles Oaks which is where the cabin that burned is located is NO WHERE near the town/of Big Bear or major population. It is about 45 minutes down a mountain road -- a few cabins - maybe two campgrounds and a diner are the entirety of where this cabin was located. He likely hiked out a bit...stole a car or two down the mountain and ended in Angeles Oaks. I am not defending Dorner's actions -- just the misinformation running rampant.

Our family continues to mourn the officers killed and pray for those wounded along with their fellow officers and families.

I'm just trying to figure out how they found his ID in that charred rubble. I've dug through a

burned-down house.....

You know, I have asked myself that same question many times. How does a body get burned so badly that you can't identify it but you can read the ID? Something seems fishy in Denmark.

I am also quite in the habit of taking the national news with a grain of salt. There was a news story several months ago about a dude in Salt Lake City who was trapped in some tunnels below the city for a few days with a compound fracture of his leg and when no one came to rescue him and he had no food and water he eventually had to get himself out. It was all blah blah blah, he's such a hero and a trooper for saving himself. The local news talked about how it is illegal to be down there, he fell off the side of a walkway and frankly is a moron for spending like three days without food and water before crawling out since he obviously could. <_< So with the difference in stories like that I just sort of shrug and always assume there is more that I don't know.

In good news, I was at the store this week and found strawberries for $1 a box and got so excited I bought 3 boxes. After I got home I realized I had no idea what I wanted them for since in the past the only reason I buy them is for shortcake and I usually either made shortcake or just bought an angel food cake. Well, I can't exactly just go buy an angel food cake and for all of my baking experience I have never made one before. :blink: So, queue google. I eventually picked out a recipe I liked and only made half just in case it sucked. (That is the way it is meant to be done right?) I popped the cake out of the oven and waited an interminable hour, I thought I might die... and finally unpanned it and cut a very small piece. It was like heaven! I just used the recipe from the King Arthur website and my pastry flour blend from my Christmas cookies from the Dec issues of Living Without.

In bad news, I don't think there will be any cake left for dessert tonight so I'm going to have to make another. :lol: What? Pancakes and fruit are a breakfast food so why not cake and strawberries? It already started as half a cake, then I was so in love I kept cutting little pieces and well to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure how it got mostly gone. :ph34r:

Tonight I'm making our traditional Valentine's Day pizza for the girls (hopefully Gluten Free Pantry crust will come through and it will be a heart shape like I used to be able to make.) I'll be making about 4 different pizzas since we are having dinner with the neighbors. One will be pepperoni (shaped like a heart), a cheese, a meat and broccoli (my favorite) and then we will have mini heart shaped brownies for dessert.

Well, there wasn't enough angel food cake left for it to make dessert tonight. :ph34r: So, I have a daffodil angel food cake cooling and waiting to come out of the pan now. I just popped a bowl of lemon curd into the fridge. I'll also get a blueberry glaze together in a bit. I'm just taking a few minutes to rest my leg before getting going again while I wait for my cast iron pan to get hot. Next step is to get the lard melting to make fried chicken. I'll have a baked potato but I'm sure that he'll want french fries. If I have time I may even get around to some fried green beans.

This is as good as it gets for V day for us. It just seems silly to me to celebrate beyond a meal with mildly more than usual effort since our anniversary is this month every few years.

Left my electronics shut down last night...

Dinner was:

Steak - everyone's favorite

Baked Mac and Cheese - one son's favorite

Cauliflower "Fried Rice" - my favorite when hubby makes for me -- which he did and added halved baby brussel sprouts -- YUM!

Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting for extended family.

I licked my finger when making the frosting -- no adverse reactions to report :D

Oh...tonight I'm stealing Alex's idea -- was going to make pizza for the other son yesterday as a Valintine, but ran out of time -- hadn't thought of making heartshaped ones, so toight we'll have heartshaped personal pizzas for everyone - except me ;)

Tonight will be easy. I am dying for some mac and cheese so I think I'll throw some together this afternoon. Besides that I always make enough fried chicken to have some the next night because of how labor intensive it is to make. And cake, there is still plenty of cake. Know the song I want a hippopotamus for Christmas? I've got that stuck in my head now only I think I'm going to BE a hippopotamus for Christmas if I don't stop baking. :lol:

Anyone know what "sweet rice flour" is? I have a recipe for lime bars that uses white rice flour and sweet rice flour (about 1/4 of the total flour) for the crust. WF didn't have any. I think I'll try it with just white rice flour and see what happens.

Synonymous terms: sweet rice flour; sticky rice flour; glutinous rice flour; i.e., any rice flour that isn't called white or brown :D

They didn't have any flour named those. Think it will work with just the rice flour?

I've used regular white rice flour in similar circumstance -- worked fine.

We had fish, fries, hush puppies and slaw. OH MY GOSH was it good, I was in HEAVEN! We ordered the hush puppy mix from from a Grist mill from back home and it makes the BEST hush puppies we've ever had! I just recently realized we could order it online. We did add finely chop onion to the batter. HAVE MERCY. They were VERY light and fluffy and naturally gluten free because they don't process any wheat in there! We also ordered grits, cornbread mix and rice. It is the best we've ever had. I would share a photo but it won't let me post it unless I have an URL.

In case anyone is interested,

Salmon, rice, stir fry peppers, zucchini, mushrooms.

And an evening of singing and unexpectedly catching up with a load of old friends, some of whom I haven't seen for over 15 years. It was great :)

    • Awww Jhern...I'm sorry you are feeling so bad.  (((((Hugs))))) Please ask your Dr for a full thyroid panel to get a complete picture.  That includes TSH, free T4, free T3, TPOAb and TgAb...the last 2 are antibodies.  With a TSH that high, I would feel terrible...tired and achy for sure.  Most people, including me, feel best with their TSH around 1.  Some labs show an outdated range of .5-4.5.  I would bet that you would benefit from some thyroid medication. The weight gain could be from healing and absorbing nutrients too. I hope you get some answers and start feeling better soon!
    • Yes, elevated intra-epithelial lymphocytosis is a possible indication of Celiac disease. That’s what my biopsy said. “Moderate to marked villous blunting with moderate to marked intra-epithelial lymphocytosis and marked chronic inflammation of lamina propia….characteristic for untreated celiac…” What we are finding out about these medicines is incredible. I knew that it could damage the kidneys, and can cause fluid retention. It’s good you posted here. Yes, usually the order is indeed blood tests first then biopsy, but oh well. My own thinking about autoimmunity is starting to evolve more and more to incorporate the ideas of Dr Terry Wahls, namely that there is little real difference between the various chronic diseases, that at bottom, it all comes down to cellular health. "Cells need certain nutrients in order to do their work, otherwise they begin to malfunction, even die." “When you look at chronic disease on a cellular and molecular level, we see it’s all the same disease – too much oxidative stress, inflammation, and nutrient deficiencies, toxins that are present. We see it in mental health, neurodegeneration, autoimmunity. It’s remarkably similar. Treat at the cellular level.” Dr Terry Wahls. Plumbago  
    • Magnesium and Calcium intake down combination with high sodium would lead to a form of edema where your body retains water in the joints and muscles. Try drinking more green tea, vitamin C supplements, bioflavoids, and adding a bit of lemon juice (I use the true lemon powder) to foods and beverages. http://www.progressivehealth.com/5-vitamins-to-reduce-fluid-retention.htm
          OH for low sodium seasoning look up Big Axe Spices "http://bigaxespice.com/index.html"on amazon HUGE flavor no sodium. Or if you need more selection Spicely Organics. I did find a salt free habanero hot sauce I use in cooking for a few customers of mine that is salt free >.< Might help sweat it off lol http://shop.brobrubru.com/Original-African-Hot-Pepper-Sauce-Very-Hot-000019.htm   
    • Did they check for candida? And what about your other levels? Keep a eye on your food diary, start rotating foods a bit more, see if you got a new intolerance. They seem to random come and go with me like REALLY random...last month was lettuce which is fine when I brought it back yesterday.  Anyway other thoughts, make sure your getting a bit of everything, I sometimes slip and do not get enough vitamin A, Vitamin K, lycopene, selenium, or zinc when I rotate nuts, seeds, and veggies sometimes reaching a combination that is lacking one mineral or vitamin.   I really do find those "Super Foods" that you need to up a bit for me it is oddly nutritional yeast, kale, cocoa nibs, coconut, pumpkin seeds seem to really boost how I feel.   Sometime a probiotic and enzymes are a huge help.

      Might try a low carb (no fruit, grains, sugars, starchy veggies) for a week or two and There is this Candidia FX stuff on sale on Amazon that worked wonders for mine.
    • I can definately identify with this. I half-laughingly refer to myself as an 'elder orphan'.   I can't afford anything like a secret santa but would love the opportunity to exchange holiday cards with others here.  It is comforting in a way to realize that I am not the only person who is isolated but kind of sad to know that there are others in the same boat. When I talk to folks with large close extened families who endlessly complain about them I just want to slap them sometimes.
