Found this recipe for Tortillas's I think I really want to try it! What do you guys think?

 

 

Like corn tortillas, these become pliable when heated. Pop them in the microwave or warm them in a dry skillet before using. If you like crispy edges, add a little oil to the pan when reheating.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 cup yellow split peas
  • 1/4 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • oil for the pan

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cover the split peas and rice with 2 inches of water. Cover and set aside on the counter overnight.
  2. Drain the peas and rice, then put them into the bowl of a food processor. Add the salt, then process until the mixture is finely chopped, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. With the motor running, gradually pour in ½ cup water. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, then continue to process for 3 minutes. The batter should be the consistency of pancake batter (but grainy). If it’s too thick, stir in a spoonful or more of water.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add a thin layer of oil. Pour in 1/3 cup of the batter, then spread it around with a rubber spatula until you have a 7-inch tortilla. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the tortilla is golden around the edges. Flip and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute more, until bottom side is lightly freckled. Remove from the pan, then repeat the process for the remaining batter.

Yield: 7 tortillas

I made a Grand Marnier Souffle with Creme Anglaise for dessert last night. First time I've made it since going gluten free. I just substituted cornstarch for flour and it came out fine.

 

I've got nothing fun to share...so I thought I'd add RMJ's recipe to this thread  :P

We saw it was delayed. Daytona is @150 miles north of us. We had 83 and sunny today, but rain is coming this week and a lower average temp. (like maybe 76 ?? lol)

 

The hubs rarely makes any requests and he was craving corned beef and cabbage. (I have no luck eating preserved meats like that, but...) I love and humor him and he put up mirrors, art work, towel racks, bird feeders, and shelves today, so he deserved a treat!

 Therefore,

Corned beef and cabbage, carrots, potatoes, baby onions and turnips he got!. YUM!!

Last night I grilled a pork tenderloin and had it with some leftover sides from two days before.  Had my IV infusion this week and it beat the heck out of me this time so I haven't done a lot of cooking.  Tonight I am going to whip up breakfast for dinner. :D

We're on the road vacationing in Florida, so we made gluten free waffles at a park for lunch and served them with coconut butter, peanut butter, applesauce, and jam as well as some recently picked Florida oranges. (yay for power plugs for my waffle iron and blender!) For supper, we went out to eat at California Pizza Kitchen.

 

We just started making cooked food on the road instead of buying gluten-free bread and so far, I love it! On our trip down to Florida, when we stopped because of an unexpected tire problem, we cooked up some gluten-free oatmeal and raisins in the lobby of the tire shop. (in a rice cooker) For lunch, we found a rest area with electrical outlets and cooked up spanish rice and beans in my rice cooker and ate it with some salsa and had it with hummus and veggies. 

 

I'm so done with spending $50-100 on bread for vacation, so I'm glad that there are other viable options!

for a 1/2 cup of uncooked  lentils and a 1/2 cup of  uncooked brown rice I add 3 cups of water. I also add red onion and what ever spices I feel like that day  :P  My rice cooker has an automatic timer but the cooking time is about 45 - 50 mins

 

 

This is doable in the rice cooker because the brown rice and lentils have the same cooking time.

my bff was there - the last time she went to a race, we went to talladega and there were tornado warnings all day the saturday before the race!!  i texted her and told her to leave the track yesterday.  so she did and it quit raining LOLZ

 

we made the most awesome battered and fried shrimp the other night!!  i tweaked a batter recipe and it turned out really good  :)  with purple potatoes and asparagus (roasted evoo, s&p)  *NOTE - do not forget that you ate purple potatoes.,  it is Very Alarming!!*

 

yesterday, we made Daytona Sandwich (french bread dough shaped like the track)  it's really roasted chicken, fresh spinach, roasted red peppers, and pesto/mayo.  we started out making it to amuse the kids, but the kids are now pushing 30 and still demand it.  i made my own gluten-free version <shaped like a drag strip haha udi's french baguette)  and i made homemade pimento cheese :)

Glad your bff left the track....was very glad they were able to squeeze the race in between storm cells and not have to holdover to a Monday restart!!!!  Really glad the Little E won :wub: what a great victory lap...never seen him look that happy.

 

Fun sandwiches....you'd need an extra big sandwich considering how long it took to get the race in the books ;)

 

Yesterday....I had a waffle and today two slices of Canyon Bakehouse....crossing everything I got that I can handle a little bread  :ph34r:

Last night I made pancakes with marionberry syrup and scrambled eggs. I still have no idea what's for dinner tonight. I'll probably disappoint my husband with burgers and fries. I don't want any leftover floating around because we're going out for our anniversary tomorrow. We celebrate whenever it's convenient for us at the end of February/beginning of March since we don't have an anniversary most years.

 

I'm feeling pretty spunky today. I finally went for my dexa scan (it only took 2 years to have decent insurance to pay for it) and he told me that my doctor would have the report in a few hours but he let me know right away that it was perfectly fine. I guess that habit of drinking gallons of milk a week my entire life paid off. With all the other crap I have to deal with, at least this is one concern I can completely wave off. It's nice to have good news for a change. :D

Yesterday was perfect. The year we got married it was insanely warm, I wore a sleeveless dress and no coat. In February. So far every year we've celebrated, we've never had to wear winter coats. Sometimes we do wait til March to celebrate though since we don't usually have an anniversary. Although yesterday was a tad chilly with the rain and I did wear a sweater. We went to Wallaby's which is a BBQ place for lunch at their just opened new location which is much closer to home. Went shopping for a while and went to the movies to see Hunger Games.

 

Tonight I'll make a pork tenderloin, potato pancakes and glazed carrots.

    • Hi Galaxy, This does not mean that you don't have celiac.  You need a full panel done.  I only test positive on the DGP IgA test.  You still need tTG IgG, DGP IgA, DGP IgG and EMA.  Ask your Dr to order the rest?  Do keep eating gluten until all testing is complete and definitely keep advocating for yourself!  You deserve to feel good!! ((((((Hugs))))))
    • HI all. Blood, genetic and 3 biopsies diagnosed Celiac 2007. Spent 10 years on elimination diet of 9 foods to have stable colon and CRP. Never had bad Celiac numbers and my weight dropped 90 lbs from inflamation under control. Great cholesterol. Last two years have been adding foods. Last summer developed sharp pain in right flank, severe. After ultrasounds and MRI no diagnosis. Three back to back bladder infections and high CRP, Westergreen and Cholesterol later I went back to elimination diet for 30 days. Hard with food and starvation fear. Blood perfect again. Just wanted to share that obviously some food I added took me down hard. I am militant gluten-free and my Celiac blood work was normal throughout. Pain is gone. Anyone else experience this. Did you find out what it was and what test or Lab? Thanks to all who share here.
    • http://www.popsci.com/peppers-marijuana-gut Found this and found it interesting,  I will admit I love making edibles and it always seemed to help with my gut lol. "Your gut is something of an immunological mystery. Unlike the rest of the body, which tends to treat foreign invaders with a singular purpose—seek and destroy—the stomach cannot afford to be so indiscriminate. It exists to help fuel the body, and that means routinely welcoming foreign bodies in the form food. “If we injected ourselves with the food that we eat, we would have a massive immune response,” said Pramod Srivastava, an immunologist at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. When our gut’s immune system starts acting more like that of the rest of the body, the gut gets inflamed and starts attacking its own cells. The end result is illness. Diseases like celiac (an autoimmune reaction to gluten) and ulcerative colitis (one of two types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the other being Crohns) occur when the gut’s immune system starts treating food, and our own body, like an interloper. These conditions often leaves sufferers in tremendous pain and at an increased risk of both malnutrition and colon cancer. But if researchers could figure out how to calm down that immunological response, it might be possible to create a treatment. Srivastava’s recent study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests we may be one step closer to finding a cure. He found that anandamide, a chemical that the body makes naturally and that is very similar to chemicals found in marijuana, helps calm down the immune system—at least in the guts of mice. If his studies hold up in humans, he says it could eventually lead to a cure for ulcerative colitis. To understand how Srivastava came to this conclusion it helps to look at his earlier work. Srivastava found that when he exposed immune cells to hot temperatures that the cells became highly activated—in other words, the immune cells went to work. Previous studies have shown that elevated body temperatures (better known as fevers) can help immune cells work better. But what Srivastava wanted to know was why. How exactly did the cells know that it was getting hot in there? “It was known that there were certain calcium cells that open up in the nerves when they are exposed to high temperature,” said Srivastava. “So, if the hand encounters a hot stove, those calcium cells open, calcium falls into the nerve and that nerve impulse goes to the brain, and we know that it is warm or hot.” It turns out that the same calcium channel is also how immune cells knew that their Petri dishes were getting warm. If physically hot temperatures activate the immune cells, Srivastava wondered, would capsaicin—the chemical that makes chili peppers feel hot—do the same? The answer was yes. Immune cells exposed to chili pepper in a Petri dish behaved just like cells exposed to higher temperatures. But our cells aren’t exposed to capsaicin directly when we bite into a spicy dish. So Srivastava fed the chemical to mice with type 1 Diabetes (which, like IBD, stems from autoimmune inflammation) to mimic our actual exposure. Since the Petri dish experiments showed that heat and capsaicin tended to make immune cells more active, the mice fed capsaicin should have developed more diabetes than the control group. But the opposite happened. Srivastava found that capsaicin didn’t ramp up the immune cells in their guts—it chilled them out. The mice fed capsaicin actually stopped being diabetic. It turns out something else happens when a mouse chows down on capsaicin. A special kind of immune cell, CX3CR1, also gets activated. And that immune cell tends to suppress immune responses in the gut. Since the body can’t really depend on a steady diet of chili peppers to keep us healthy, Srivastava went looking to see what else binds to the same calcium channel as capsaicin. He discovered that anandamide does. Anandamide was discovered in the 1980s when researchers were trying to make sense of why our body, especially the brain, has cannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoids, found in marijuana, are part of a class of chemicals that can alter neurotransmission in the brain. Nature didn't develop those sensors just so humans could get stoned: anandamide is similar to the cannabinoids found in marijuana, but our body actually produces it. “The person who discovered anandamide had an interest in Indian languages,” said Srivastava. “And in India, the word ‘ananda’ means bliss.” Nobody knows whether anandamide actually induces a sense of bliss, but mice fed anandamide experienced the same healing effects—stretching from the esophagus down through the stomach—as mice fed capsaicin. Srivastava also discovered that when he gave mice capsaicin, it seemed to stimulate their bodies' production of anandamide. In both cases, it was ultimately the anandamide that was healing the gut, which suggests that other cannabinoids like marijuana might have a similar effect. As with all studies, there are some limitations. Srivastava’s work was done in mice, not people. But it does fall in line with anecdotes from IBD sufferers who have found that marijuana relieves some of their symptoms, and other studies that have found that people who eat chili peppers live longer. Because anandamide is a cannabinoid, it’s pretty heavily regulated—you can’t just give it to humans. As a result, Srivastava hopes to work with public health authorities in Colorado—the land of medical (and recreational) marijuana—to see if legalization has led to any improvement in colitis patients who consume edibles. If it has, that could help Srivastava make the case for a study that repeats his experiment in human patients. In the meantime? Well, if you live in Colorado and want to try something new for your IBD, you're sure in luck. But most patients should probably hold off on trying to mimic the study results at home: many IBD patients report negative reactions to spicy foods, likely because they increase stomach acid and often contain nightshade plants. So guzzling hot sauce might not be a safe way to boost your body's anandamide production."
    • Even when glutened, I have YET to have a positive TTG (IgA or IgG).  Before you give up on a celiac diagnosis, get the GI to order the rest of the panel.  Make sure it is firmly ruled out.    This happened to my 20 year old niece.  celiac disease was completely ruled out (blood and endo), and colonoscopy clear.  Finally, a pill camera found Crohn's at the end of her small intestine out of reach of both scopes.  Note that she could still develop celiac disease one day.  Not saying you have Crohn's, but be persistent and continue to advocate for your health!       Keep eating gluten!  
    • Ok does anyone know if meaningful beauty is gluten free and what  the source of the tocopherol found in some of there products is from( hoping not wheat germ oil)  I'm new to this and I'm so confused when it comes to if it's safe to use facial and beauty products containing this ingredient or any gluten ingredients for that matter.  I figured I would be safe as long as I'm not accidentally ingesting it!  Thanks
