Yeah, I couldn't resist submitting. Reading all those stories was inspiring. Plus I got me a really great guy!

 

We had salads tonight with chicken and mushrooms and a little cheese. Very easy, but yummy.

So GD broke my phone...well perhaps not...all I know is I tried twice to post a quite witty comment if I do say so myself...and my phone slowed...I turned it off...and on...and then tried to post here....phone needs to rest...hoping it will magically reset in the morn....so I have hopped back on the good old laptop....kitty pissed because she had to scoouuuch over to make room -- yes I use on my lap!  

 

Goodness...I have forgotten what I originally posted on GD....oh ya...something along the lines of...

 

Thank you for sharing your story...I too love our purple tongued friends...oh wait...I mean our long necked compadres...oh darn it...perhaps I am unclear....I love Giraffes and your hubby for supporting you....Happy 5th Addie!

very sweet story, addie :)  

 

i think it takes a 'keeper' to put up with our crazy disease - luckily i think most of us have one!

 

tonight, it's:  MACARONI AND CHEESE!!!!!

 

(and i am going to make 'regular' pasta for his share - your story made me all gooey inside <and not the *bad* way lolz) 

 

ps - schar!  are the cookies as good as the bread?  it's a new addition at the grocery store - just the white bread.  been toasting it and spreading (butter, jam, everything) on it.  even ate it plain.  i have seen many (ciabatta!  sourdough!  hoagie rolls!) varieties of it when i visited my sister's in nj and i am just going to go nuts about bread(s) next time i visit  :)

We love the Schar baguettes!  You cook them for a few minutes.  The only cookies I have had are the plain shortbread biscuit thingys.  They are like a plain shortbread tea cookie.  Not very exciting.  Kinnitoos  are by Kinninick and are "Oreos".  Very yummy

I might have eaten about half of the angel food cake I made in about a day. I also had no regrets. It was just there, staring at me every time I went to the kitchen. And when I wasn't in the kitchen it was there, calling to me, reminding me that it was amazingly delicious and needing to be eaten. What could I do but comply?

 

Those Oreo things are really good. You have to be careful dunking though or they'll fall off and then you need a spoon, which I was not ready with the first time. I always come armed now though.

 

Tonight for dinner chicken cheddar bacon ranch sandwiches. My husband got hooked on them when he worked at a Blimpie forever ago. He doesn't want me to feel left out eating mine as a salad so he is stopping on his way home from work to pick up a loaf of Udi's bread for me. :wub: Not that I minded the salad at all, but it is just so super sweet of him to want me to have a sandwich.

So I tried making a crepe out of just flax meal, tapioca starch, and water (and sweet seasonings).

It's edible..... I will get back to you guys when i manage to make it tasty. :D

 

 
here you go, bunz - this is simona's recipe, i thought it was on this forum, but i can't find the link..  i use lactaid for the rice milk, sometimes sub flours, etc and if you omit the sugar, it will be savory.  the batter is pretty forgiving and this summer i am probably going to adjust it ever so slightly to make funnel cakes.  just fry in deeper oil.  (sometimes i feel like a chemist haha)
 
My gluten-free crepes (simona)
 
2 extra large eggs
11/2 cup rice milk
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
½ cup white rice
½ cup brown rice
½ cup tapioca starch
Oil for frying.
 
Mix everything together.
 
Heat up a 9" non-stick skillet on medium heat. Pure ½ of teaspoon (size of 1 dollar coin) of oil in middle of pan and spread it little be around the skillet. Pure 1/3 cup of mixture on one side of skillet and with the circular motion spread it around the skillet's bottom. Fry it for proximately 1-1 1/2 minutes, or until you will see pink border. Slowly turn the crepe on other side and fry for 30 seconds. Repeat with every crepe. From this amount you will make 8-9 crepes.

Hope he's feeling better soon. I had a lot of rough times with that when my oldest was a baby and toddler so I know how stressful it is for everyone, which certainly doesn't help.

 

Tonight I had battered fish and fried green beans. My day did not go at all as planned and by dinner time cooking was not on the agenda.

As I talked to my oldest daughter this week it dawned on me to ask her about her robot team. I remembered her mentioning the first time she was going was on my birthday, which was Jan. 5. She is getting more and more excited now every time she talks about it as there is about a month left. So seeing your little pic every day it finally clicked and I asked her and she is doing the First Robotics thing. She goes on and on and I'm no dummy but it is mostly all over my head. Some of it makes sense, but mostly I'm just happy to listen to her prattle on about something that excites her so much.

Hey, if anyone sees flying robots, can they shoot me a message? That would be of interest for me.

 

I made arugula salad with tandoori squid, sliced fennel, and lime vinaigrette. Dessert was hot chocolate and whipped cream.

Son much improved this morning, thank heavens for steroids.

I am still a bit wobbly, we haven'thad to get extra help for about 18 months, since we moved from the city to the coast, so it was a bit of a shock.

Easy day for everyone I think

Ok, so this whole getting up early on Saturdays thing? I could get used to this. I just discovered Bountiful Baskets which is a west(ish) food co-op thingy for fruits and veggies. I was super skeptical since there is so much I can't eat. (I'm still worried about spinach season.) For $15 I got two entire reusable shopping bags full of fruits and veggies. Bananas, lemons, strawberries, mangoes, lemons, lettuce, asparagus, bok choy, celery, radishes and green peppers. It is beyond my wildest expectations! I've never had bok choy, mostly because my mom never made it and I never got adventurous.

 

I'm mostly excited about the asparagus though because it is so damn expensive that I rarely have it, and I got three bunches! (The third one was for killing myself volunteering to separate the boxes of stuff into the baskets.) Heck, I could just have that for dinner and nothing else. I suppose though for the sake of my husband who abhors all things green besides lettuce that I should think up some sort of meat to go with it and maybe force a salad on him. If I poke around enough in the freezer I may find a pork chop. I think I'll just broil a mango for dessert.

Nice!!

That is a fantastic reason to get up and out early....and a terrific reason for a Saturday afternoon nap ;)

Dinner tonight will be talapia as I forgot I bought and needs to be eaten today....hmmm maybe ill buy a bit more so my piece is more fresh - men get yummy breading on theirs...I'll throw some fresh herbs atop mine -- "chips" for all - reg and sweet potato respectively.

This past week was a food festival. Still avoiding high histamine foods, except for that margarita I just downed, but managed to eat out at 3 highly recommended gluten-free places: Bonefish Grill in VA, FL and 2 places in the Keys. Marker 88 and Chef Michael's.

 

Grilled Chilean Sea Bass with mango salsa

Herbed jasmine rice, asparagus

 

(I had that twice, it's so good)

 

Lightly battered and sauteed Yellowfin Tuna (caught just hours before) with fruit and coconut salsa

Black beans and rice

 

Freshly- caught Hogfish with a nutty crust and tropical fruit salsa

Thai spiced green beans (K !!, they have them as "haricot verts" on the menu  :P )

 

Buckwheat pancakes and (I could not resist) thick slab BACON (1 piece) 

and a mimosa.... okay, this was really a brunch, but the chef was so sweet about making those pancakes, I had to tell you guys.

 

Lamb Shanks (the size of a dog's leg) done in red wine, & herbs and falling off the bone

Garlic smashed with roasted veggies 

 

2 creme brulees, a gluten-free key lime pie slice made by the famous Key Lime pie guy (Chef Kermit)  of Key West and a key lime Baked Alaska. Not my fav--not a meringue fan.

 

No dieting going on here, obviously,but I have walked a mile everyday and that  dolphin swim counts for some caloric burn.

 

Just squeezing into the wet suit (which I imagine feels like those Spanx things on steroids) used up some calories.

Holy mama--peeling it off was a whole 'nuther experience. :lol:

 

No more desserts for me. That was just a "special week".  

Went through the Everglades--beautiful and wild. 

 

Mindwarp--hope your son is a-okay, sweets!

Bok choy is kinda like cabbage. Make sure you cook it fully though...

 

From wiki:

 

Toxic effects

Pak choi contains glucosinolates. These compounds have been reported to prevent cancer in small doses, but are toxic to humans in large doses. In 2009, an elderly woman who had been consuming 1 to 1.5 kg of raw Pak choi per day developed hypothyroidism, resulting in myxedema coma.[5] - However, one person is not statistically significant, it can be caused by other reasons as well.here are other milder symptoms from over-consumption of Pak choi, such as nausea, dizziness and indigestion in people with weaker digestive systems. Sometimes this is caused by not thoroughly cooking.

Spent a wonderful morning with my boys -- perfect bluebird day -- made better by free lift tickets a friend of mine passed along to us.

 

Dinner is BBQ Chicken Breasts

Baby Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

Rice or Potato??

 

and one more try at my valentine cake pan with the heart in the middle...this time vanilla cake with my standard chocolate mousse as filling..I know that will set up nicely -- topped with fudge frosting -- may have to have a little taste!  If I'm not feeling lucky...I'll just eat the mousse :)

    • I can tell you that the head pressure you are speaking about is one of the symptoms I am experiencing now.  And fogginess and dizziness.  I'm going to go as long as I can with my challenge. Im hoping the new GI I'm going to see will work with me. I would like him to do blood work every month to see if levels are changing.  There were so many problems with my daughter's challenge and testing. U of C at the time only recommended a 6 week challenge. And only tTG IgA and total IgA were run. Not a full panel. Well after the biopsy and when insurance wouldn't give us another referral we were told that there was a more extensive panel. By then she was gluten free and we were not going back.  
    • People are able to find a very old topic and add to it (bumping it up to current).  We need to remember to check the dates and realize that these people from 10 years ago may not respond.  Also, remember that product info, ma be even medical info, can change in that amount of time.
    • When I was changing doctors due to insurance issues, I got one doc who I told I had celiac, and had been gluten-free for 2 years. He ordered a blood test and said I DID NOT have celiac cause the blood test came back negative....I looked at him like it was crazy, told him course your not going to detect the antibodies in test if I am not eating it. Told him to go back to med school and never went back. Similar experience with another doctor around that time....funny memory glad I found one that knows about the disease to some extent.
    • ÖThe potential celiac or  NCGS  diagnosis is given to me by the Celiac researchEr.  I do not think it's official until after we meet again.  actually I have not heard of that doctors work. I will look it up and see if I can listen to an interview. Thanks for sharing.  some of the symptoms that I continue to have Had on a strict gluten-free diet or similar to what I have now  and some of them disappeared. Of course During that time I was thrown on Xanax and some Protonix even though I don't actually have acid reflux. So there may have been some symptoms that were caused by those medications but I've been off Of Them for months now.  I guess headed pressure would be one of the more prominent symptoms  that I still had on a gluten-free diet although it's much much worse recently well I'm gluten.  it was almost like I can feel a strange sensation in my gut and the head at the same time but it's nothing like what you would think it wasn't cramping it wasn't... I don't know how to describe it. it does not feel anything like sinuses it's a really strange feeling like my brain Is inflamed Or being squeezed.  When I first started getting it it scared the living crap out of me because I thought I was going to end up passing out. I would be afraid to drive alone with my young son. Now admittedly I was diagnosed with inflammation of the small intestine in late August and was gluten free throughout the fall but started eating it again in late December. So I may not have given myself a tremendous amount of time to heal from the August duodenitis.   Currently I have pain in the right rib cage area,  I also get a tremendous amount of pressure in that area mostly when I'm sitting. Kind of like when us pregnant women had a baby's foot stuck up in that area.  I get nausea on and off, some shortness of breath, dizzy,  when my brain gets that  pressure my eyes often feel it as well, and I get some transient numbness and tingling in my hands and oddly in my face.  last summer I had Random episodes of blood pressure drops as well. I would start to really not feel well and noticed that eating actually helped those episodes. I was exercising a lot At the time but ate constantly  and was maintaining my weight. One doctor theorized it might be my blood sugar dropping so I bought a monitor but I never caught that. The only thing that I did catch was when I bought the blood pressure monitor and started taking my blood pressure when these episodes were happening.   for the most part I had pretty good health up until about a year-and-a-half ago and a very strange six months or so about 13 years ago where a lot of neurological stuff happened as well. I had vertigo, visual disturbances, eye floaters, muscles twitching, ants crawling sensation on my scull, some really strange stuff. It lasted about 6 months and over time it just went away.  except for the eye floaters, they stuck around. I'm not particularly concerned about them it's just that they were not there one day and I had some visual disturbances and Bam there they were and they never went away. I have a half-sister with MS but we ruled it out for me at that time and we also ruled it out last summer as well.   I did the whole 12-week thing that they're suggesting for your daughter. We figured the six weeks wasn't long enough.  For the most part other than a few weird things I honestly didn't get strange symptoms until the end of the six weeks so 12 weeks made sense. I think I actually ended up doing 10 weeks before the biopsy This time. Nothing but the increase in IELs.  I know they only biopsy the duodenum and I wonder sometimes if it's not just lower down. But with the negative blood work except for that one random test I don't know if it's really worth pursuing any more testing at this point. I'm so tired.  I know my brother is seronegative but that's pretty rare although I have no idea whether or not they've ever done a study on if that happens to be familial.  I also would really like to know if people who test positive for TTG 6 have any gut damaged. Because if that's the case perhaps there is no seronegative celiac disease  Have you read Dr. Fasano's work?  he writes back both Celiac and ncgs.  How long are you doing your challenge for again?  I know you may be anxious for answers as well but my suggestion just from personal experience would be to go as long as you can. 
    • I should qualify that I'm actually consuming the equivalent of 1-3 slices of bread in the form of vital wheat gluten. Sometimes I have bread, if I'm eating out. But I don't really want all of the carbs and I want to demonstrate that it actually IS the gluten causing the problems and not a Fodmap issue.  My reaction to bread and my reaction to the gluten are the same.  I'm actually shocked at how quickly things have changed. My hair is starting to thin again (boo hoo 😩), and my stools are completely different and it's only been about two weeks. The headache and dizziness and nausea are the worst.  Ennis, you are right. You would think that all of these symptoms would show on blood work. Grrr. I'm hoping that the GI I'm seeing on June 7th will run a preliminary full celiac panel.  It will only be 4 weeks by then.  Will it show something?  My sister has her PhD in immunology and I remember her saying how difficult research in immunology is because you need clearly high antibodies to demonstrate anything.
