When you are looking for your Florida place, maybe you should get some property or a triplex for a Celiac South Complex? We can get one in Colorado for summers and skiing. Heck- Colorado would be south for those two!

Two compounds -- stellar idea K!

 

I'll venture down to the Florida site for a visit in the winter months, but will hold down the Colorado fort most of the time.

 

Roll call....where is everyone????  And where will you be spending your time once we form our gluten-free compounds?

Three feet!  When does Spring arrive there?

 

We are going out this evening!!! Housewarming for some young friends - I'll bring something for me and hubby is happy to have someone else cook for him.

 

Tomorrow will be creamy garlic enchiladas with the left over meat from the crock pot carnitas yesterday.

Yes - at least three feet in our yard.  The snow is piled far over my head in many places (from shoveling driveways, etc.).  It is thigh high in the park and I am SICK AND TIRED OF IT.  This is later than normal.  Usually about now most of the snow is gone but we keep getting more and more.  It is in the forecast for tonight yet again.  BLECH!  :angry:

Ooooohh, gives me shudders first thing in morning... hubs did shopping and cooked for me last night.  I cut into my pork chop and said "Are you sure this isn't brined pork?:  He said he was sure.  So I had a bite :unsure:  and said "Are you SURE?"  He goes to look at wrapping, starts reading INGREDIENTS!!  I say that pork shouldn't have INGREDIENTS!!  Yep, pork loaded with soy!! ooh, ooh, ooh.  Climb stairs as quick as my breath will let me searching for Lectin Lock :huh:  - feel okay this morning :D :D

 

Hope you shovel your way out from under all that snow.  Egads, it must melt sometime soon.

Tonight was leftover pork roast with some garlic taters. There were veggies to go with it for me, and some mac & cheese. Other than cutting up a tater and throwing it in the oven, dinner was 100% microwavable. It was that kind of day. The good news is that I'm still semi-vertical-ish. Tomorrow will be a better day.

Middle eastern inspired chicken cooked with Zaatar (a middle eastern spice mix), purple potato fries. Yummy!

I know the plate is missing veggies, but we started off with a kale soup made with homemade chicken broth, so I can be forgiven!

Wow you really can cook. The combination of Vanilla beans and Cherry with pork chops sounds yummy!

We had chicken tenders dipped in egg and a little bit of almond milk first and then dipped in gluten free breadcrumbs and romano cheese.  Season with some salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder and sautee in olive oil and butter.  A favorite.

CP,  you're still new here, so you are just beginning to see what she can do.

 

Our Love2 ...oh, she does not just "cook", nay,......she weaves magic!

 

She makes a plate talk and say "thank you, thank you, thank you".

She makes people drool uncontrollably on their laptops. 

Legend has it that she once caused a mass migration of nomadic people to walk through 3 feet of snow, following the wispy curl of heavenly aromas right to her doorstep.

oh no, no no......She does not just "cook".

 

She's a culinary goddess and we are merely her "wannabees".

:lol:

 

Some of us have actually plotted to go up and kidnap her and make her the queen of our G F cult. so we can

live happily ever after, eating ourselves silly. It's just that none us really want to trudge through all that damn snow.

Traveling for a lacrosse tournament -

Last night - ham & cheese & spinach on canyon bakehouse San Juan bread and black pepper potato chips in the seats. Later Pinot noir , dark choc and Parmesan crisps from WF.

Tonight - chicken taco salads while watching. A Go Picnic for lunch. Breakfast - 2 hard boiled eggs and strawberries. Snacks - chips, Carmel corn, grapes, hummus with pretzel sticks.

Thought it might help someone to see how to eat and travel. Didn't know this motel had microwaves and fridges or I might have done something different.

 Good stuff, K!! and good luck at the tournament! 

:)

I thought that the Udi's bread traveled surprisingly well for us last month. Did not get stale, I kept it in the fridge.

On the road is "do-able" now.

The Jif on -the- go cups, crunchmaster crackers, apples and celery sticks worked well.

Some Chobani cups and bananas for breakfast.

The Koolatron cooler in the car really helped (as did the fridge and micros in the motels). But if you find yourself stuck w/o those, it can still be done.

One hotel gave us a "welcome bag" in the room. It had bottled water, M and Ms , a granola bar and cheezits in it.

I ate the M and Ms. :) Hubs ate the granola bar (and we left the cheezits behind with a little thank you note to the manager).

When I review hotels on Trip Advisor, I keep saying the "free breakfasts" are great for traveling families, and I add nicely, but I cannot partake as I have Celiac, so I appreciate the fridges and the micros in the rooms so I can carry and store my own food..

Two managers wrote a reply" "we're hearing more about gluten free options and we're working on this".

That would be nice. Not sure they make small boxes of gluten-free Chex, however (J likes those!) ....LOL

I think she is actually onto our plot, which is the reason she lives up in all that snow. Mere self preservation. She'll leave as soon as the snow is gone, flying away like a little bird, out of our reach for the summer.

 

I have my beef macaroni, which I swear isn't a casserole in the fridge that I can have for dinner. I have no idea what my husband will eat. I suppose I'll figure something out. I just sort of did a fly by night thing with the "recipe" and everything turned out great. Next time though I think I'll put a bunch of vegetables in it since my husband won't eat it anyway. I had a zucchini in the house, not sure why I didn't just cut it up and add it other than not thinking of it at the time.

It's OK, I can sneak up from this side and round her up, she''ll never suspect that

Perhaps you can kidnap her at the airport on the way back from Croatia??? (let her have her holiday first, she will need to rest up before cooking for this greedy bunch :D )

  Yes, of course, we should give the poor girl some SUNSHINE and restorative rest.

 

 

Going old school/retro tonight for dinner:

 

Meatloaf 

Baked potatoes

Swiss chard

 

Might have a bit of vanilla ice cream.

 

That's  a Sunday night thing in our house since I was a wee one.

It used to be a "Sundaes on Sunday" tradition  with my Daddy --we are a family of ice cream whackos and

fortunately, I married an ice cream lover , too ! we make our own sometimes--and it carried over to just a few years ago. Those can make one a tad chubby. :unsure:   and my thighs think I do not need a sundae right now.

So, if I see a group of starved-looking greedy celiacs at the airport with ski masks and nylon stockings pulled tightly over their faces I will know what to expect.  Don't forget the black sedan getaway vehicle.  And don't forget to look inconspicious!  If not, I just might figure it out!  :lol:        :ph34r:

Someone finally picked up on that!  I was wondering when someone would figure it out.  Leave it to Addy.  :P

    • Thank you all for your great suggestions! Will take all of it on board
    • Dairy is a major issue with celiac, due to the enzymes to break it down being produced by the villi tips being mostly destroyed or damaged first. Eliminating for a few months may be critical. I might suggest digestive enzymes, I am taking Jarrow Enzymes at 2x the dose, Jarrow Bromelain, and sometimes some extra papaya enzymes. I have issues breaking down the large amounts of foods I consume otherwise (I am trying to body build bulk). I also would look at some protein powders if I was you. Vegan protein powders are easy to digest most times an can be great. Pumpkin Seed protein is the easiest on the stomach, being a balanced PH, high in zinc, iron, magnesium, it is very good for recovery and putting on weight in addition to others. Might also consider blends, try not to get anything with too much gums in it. I like NutraKey V-Pro and MRM Veggie Elite. I also buy a whole list of others. On her food, veggies, and meats should be cooked to almost mush, try using a crockpot and stewing them. This will make them easier to digest and break down.
      Is she having any other issues? Like Bowl issues? I find I can loose hunger if I back up, and I have to take magnesium like crazy and eat a whole lot of fiber to keep it moving. Take it you already read the newbie 101 section about getting all new cookware, and deconing the house? Bit of a extra tip I swear by to everyone, Freezer Paper/Butcher Paper. Makes a nice clean prep surface and easy clean up.
    • Hi Kirsty, Gluten messes me up in a lot of different ways, some of which I recognise in your first list. You can find a massive list of symptoms associated with celiac here: https://glutenfreeworks.com/gluten-disorders/symptom-guide/ and it may be that some of your other symptoms can be found there. It's also worth searching this forum as it's been going for a long time, in internet years at least.  It certainly messed with my blood sugar and like you I'd take tests which didn't reach the extreme values, but that didn't stop the symptoms. The only way I realised this was when I removed it from my diet, for other reasons and found that a load of different other symptoms also resolved.  After this happened I then went back on to gluten for a test, a gluten challenge. My symptoms came back, but my blood test and endoscopy were negative for celiac. My consultant told me to avoid gluten for life.  In your case you need to decide whether to push for more celiac testing or not. If not, please consider fully excluding gluten. My own experience is that it's not something that you can have a little of and get a health benefit, you are still engaging your auto immune system. Obviously if you're experiencing extreme symptoms when you remove it you should do it in consultation with your doctor, but maybe if you could just get through those difficult first few days you may experience relief from some of your symptoms? Best of luck matt    
    • So... his gp did a genetic test - positive - and has referred him to a gi. His paed and diabetes educator have ordered the genetic test and another coeliac screen for 3 months and then they will decide if he needs to see a specialist because they're still convinced its most likely a false positive. Why test at diagnosis of diabetes if they don't believe the results anyway? Why is this disease so confusing for the medical world?  Anyway we're sticking with the gp and hopefully it won't be too long before he gets into a gi.  It seems that blood tests don't matter in any situation. If they can find any excuse to invalidate them they jump at it.  Makes me so infuriated I just laugh about how I already seem to know more. 
    • Thank you! I have been considering lactose, though I'm reluctant to remove more things from her diet. She has not had the classic lactose intolerance symptoms of diarrhea, gas, or bloating, though I know she could still have trouble with it. She's been on the medication for less than a week, so it's not the cause of her symptoms. I did not call the manufacturer but it is listed as safe on glutenfreedrugs.com (under the brand name periactin). It was prescribed by a pediatric GI who specializes in celiac. The first question my daughter had for the doctor was whether the medication is gluten-free, and she told us it was.
