 if I don't sneak up there and eat the whole log of cheese in one sitting I will slip those pears into a grilled cheese with it. It would be like heaven.

 

 

if it matters, that's what I would do. ;)

 

(walnuts and vinegar are HH, and I knew that when I suggested things to you.... but if you did a tiny bit, you should be ok!).

HH is high histamine. There are a few of us who are cursed with a histamine intolerance. Probably not the sort of thing anyone knows who doesn't deal with it or who hasn't been around here enough to see it talked about some.

High Histamine -- a few of us that went un-dx'd for a while discovered that Histamine containing and Histamine inducing foods are the cause of some of our lingering symptoms...you see the enzymes needed to regulate histamine in the body are created in the small intestine -- there is a real disorder called 'Histamine Intolerance' that nearly every country in the world acknowledges -- unforunately US doctors have no knowledge of it and neither UCSD or Mayo could run the tests necessary to diagnose it for me....crazy but was the last big piece of my personal medical mystery puzzle.

Anytime!  Glad you asked...amazing that just over four years ago I had no real knowledge of the digestive system -- heck, I didn't even know what Celiac Disease was and had only heard the word gluten a few times in my life!

This thread is for chatting...we were chatting....

 

I skipped dinner last night as I ran into one of my mystery reactions -- but did do another round of easy baked beans that I let bake all day on very low and then hubs roasted the chickens I was intending to cook for the men / leftover chicken meat and bones to make bone broth for me.

 

Tonight -- hmmm -- better get something defrosting ;)

 

Happy Friday!

for God's sake woman, I just drooled copiously on my laptop....oh my, that sounds fabulous.

 

rhubarb crisp....waaaa, i want that!!!  :D

 

No one says "oozing and unctuous" and gets away with it...except you. love it! xx

You, as always, are just too cute for words.  Wish I could reach out and pinch your cheeks!  :lol:

 

The HH thing intrigues me as well.  I've read links you've provided and cannot believe how many of the symptoms I have (had).  It just makes so much sense!

 

Tonight we are having the second half of the ribs...

 

Spicy Bourbon ribs with a Memphis rub I always make to have on hand and homemade delectable, ooey gooey and UNCTUOUS sauce

Roasted warm herbed potato salad with fried caper thingers

Raw cukes, carrots, fennel, jicama and broccoli with bagna cauda to which I am seriously addicted

 

Not sure what else.  I just might come up with something creative!  ^_^

I've been working my butt off yesterday and today. The weeks before a ballet performance are crazy for the business and I get to be the one in charge of the programs. While I am fine with that and have masters to work from, gathering all the info has been... challenging to say the least. I'm going to have a long night ahead of me. I took the afternoon to run errands, in the heat and sun with my husband because apparently I'm a moron today. I did get into the garden store and find a pineapple mint to replace a tomato that gave up on me this week. Pretty excited to be able to go plant him after the sun goes down.

 

So dinner will be cheating. Burgers on the indoor grill, and probably deep fried fries. Simple and practically effortless.

there is enough cheek to pinch...facial or gluteal LOL 

 

I am sure I sent you the HH info, because anytime someone I care about has chronic pain and inflammation,

I "go there" in  my head (as does My Ski Lisa)  but if not, you're getting it (again, probably) via email. :D

 

Dinner tonight:

Rustic pizza

while I pack a "to go" bag of clothes and food for our trip East for a wedding.

 

Have a great weekend, all  my peeps!! xx

We are very glad you found us too...the more the merrier in this thread :)

 

dinner last night was boneless country ribs with vegies -- and garlic pasta for the men -- served on my new -- very old pieces of crap laying around the house put together - bar height patio dinning table!  I love it...restained a large redwood round table top...put it on top of an old glass top small round that looked like s$#& -- added a few bricks between them to raise the height so I could use three pairs of mismatched bar stools we had floating around covered the base with reed fence material and covered the whole deal with two market umbrellas - one old that tilts and a new cheapo 9 footer above to provide shade from the late afternoon sun that causes me all kinds of trouble -- sure wish my house was on the opposite side of the street -- although we do get to see the fireworks show from SeaWorld during Summer nights -- so it does have that going for it -- which is nice.

 

tonight is steak -- some random steak from the freeze for the boys and I and a huge fresh Rib Eye for the hubs -- he turns 50 on Wednesday so I'm starting the spoiling early -- he has to work today so I have quadruple choc brownies in the oven to deliver to the jobsite for breaktime.

 

Happy Saturday Dinner Peeps -- Hope you all have a good day :)

thanks, lisa - i was going to ask y'all for info on this anyway - oh, man, that's alot of things i like to eat :(  if you are sensitive to one, does that mean you're sensitive to all?  or eliminate them one at a time (and not eat any of the others?)  how would one proceed?

 

tonight - last night with my bestie - they are steak eaters, i could live without it (plus, gives me an excuse to make.......)

OYSTERS lolz and they can have their red meat

she and her daughter hate veggies, so i'll put spinach on my oysters :)

roasted red potatoes

 

and i will worry with the histamines tomorrow.  (monday, really lolz)  :D

Good News is it is not like gluten -- you can have a little Histamine containing or inducing foods...the key is finding how much your body can handle -- mine can handle very little right now, but I am hopeful that I'll keep improving. 

 

I'd suggest anyone that has unresolved symptoms give this a try -- remove ALL histamine containing foods for about a week -- then try eating small amounts of different removed foods every couple of days and keep a log. 

 

Example...I can have a glass sometimes two of red wine...but if I overdo it I pay for it the next day...sometimes the same day.

 

I can do some cheese, but not too much

 

I can eat oysters and shrimp....but sing it with me....not too much

 

you get the drift...feel free to ask more questions -- my happiest day was Thanksgiving this past year when I figured the histamine connection to my exercise issue -- then removed all high histamine foods -- then kept getting better :D

 

I'm already planning for my next happiest day and that will be when my gut finally starts making the enzymes necessary to process histamine -- should that day come -- Party at my house and you are all invited!!!

I was very strict with the histamine diet for a few weeks, I saw improvement right away and continue to as time goes on but could only take the strict elimination for so long. I enjoy all sorts of things in moderation with no ill effect, and sometimes with terrible effects and know that that particular item is a no-go for me.

 

Tonight for the first time I tried a Dave's pasta sauce. (I finally caved when it was on sale for $5 a jar, I obviously won't be enjoying this often!) No wonky ingredients and there is a butternut squash sauce. Sure, it has tomatoes but only some. I'm happy to say that it is absolutely delicious and I do not at all regret spending the money on the jar.

 

I'd like to make my own enzymes too! Stupid useless intestine. <_< I think your party should be in the summer so we can enjoy the pool. :D

You made me want creamed corn which to my surprise is amazingly easy to make.

 

So, to go with my roasted chicken tonight was creamed corn, mashed taters and gravy. I think I may get into the freezer for some ice cream later for dessert, cooking while an oven is roasting away at 500 means that you get roasted chicken and roasted people. :lol:

OMG it never occurred to me to tell you about sweet potato pasta. Our local Asian market has it. We actually have more than an entire aisle that is all noodles, which is incredibly awesome.

 

I'm also with you on the fireworks. When I dragged my husband down to the fire & ice festival in the freezing weather in February it wasn't for any of the other fun stuff, it was for the fireworks. I am still like a kid the way I get excited. :D

Hellooooooo dinner peeps!

Had a fabulous time at the wedding. Legs still work after dancing my face off for hours. whoohoo!

hmm...maybe I should post this in the thread about "paranoid to go to a wedding"--maybe later---

but I my cousin made sure we GeeFReers had apps (shrimp cocktail, crudities, cheese platter) but I just had a cocktail.

 

So cool to see my fun cousins I had not seen in 5 years. They were glad to see--as some of them dryly noted-- I was not dead.  :lol: ....sarcasm runs in the family...

 

 

Special soup for us was roasted garlic, chickpea and veggies ("the others" had a not-so-great clam chowdah, they told me)

Dinner was salad, no croutons--( and I love you, cousin JoAnn for telling them not to bother with those!)

A filet mignon done to perfection (no gravy for us) roasted potatoes and summer squashes.

They all had cake and ice cream, but I brought the GFers giant homemade cookies. ("the others" wanted to know... hey.... Where did THOSE come from?? sorry, dude...just eat yer cake!)

 

Got back to the hotel at 1:30 AM.

 

Life is good.  ;)

    • So I have one pesky symptom that in the last few years has cropped up and never gone away. Lack of motivation to do some very basic things. So basic it's embarrassing to talk about. I barely manage to do a lot of adult tasks these days. It's a real stretch. It's like something is blocking me. Anyways, so I'm talking to my psych and she suggests adderal for it as we've tried lots of different avenues for this issue and none have helped. My bipolar is totally under control, for an entire year so far. My anxiety is ok with a script. It'll be even better once I get one major thing that I won't get into here taken care of. But I'm not the super motivated, extremely hard working person I used to be. It really changed basically when I got sick about 9 years ago. So, does anyone else take adderal? I've got the pills next to me but worried to take them. Not sure why. Any help, advice, reassurance is welcome.
    • Yeah I need someone to attend with me, I had someone else but they canceled on me. The hotel room is booked from the 16th-20th of August. I can pick up from the airport, greyhound, or train station and drop off if need be, room is booked from the 16th technically a day before the convention so you have time for sightseeing. Room is a double queen and you get your own bed. It is a anime convention with many Japanese guest this year, I will provide snacks, meals, etc with the room fee and I will accept paypal, credit card, or cash. Meals will be made decided on after talking with whoever is rooming with a diet build around what you can eat. The room will be gluten, corn, dairy, and peanut free. I do bring a chef kit with me including griddle, steamer, rice cooker, etc.
    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
