Soooo... had a great time with the neighbors on Sat. Night. They came for drinks and apps at 4:30  and stayed until 9. Now, those are MY kind of peeps....... lots of laughs.  She's a doll. She brought me a basil plant.

And they both "get celiac" and what gluten free means --we only discussed it briefly. He said "well, there's gluten free food everywhere, but it does not mean it's going to be okay for you to eat, right? it's all  in the prep."  I could have kissed him right then and there. lol

 

I can't tell you how much I LOVE these mediterranean pork burgers. had them last night--again--because they are so moist and flavorful.

I skipped the gremolata and added feta into the burger mix. YUM!

 

make them, peeps! trust me. Grill 'em up, serve them with corn on the cob and potato salad...or last night, I made sweet potato fries with garlic aioli

and for dessert...well, we had.sea salt caramel gelato....Karen and I are on the same page! ;)

Got a couple of sponges and a couple of bathrooms? See where I'm going here? Even if they are 3 and 4, they can have a little water and a sponge and a towel and " clean". Because, if they have time to fight, they must need something to do. Or pick up sticks in the yard, dust the baseboards, etc.

Now, You know what my boys spent their childhoods doing? Lol

When my girls were little I'd send them to their room. Together. I told them they could come out when they could get along. Usually they were happily playing together in under 5 minutes and forgot they wanted to come out, at least for a little while. :D

 

I'm not sure what's for supper yet. Maybe alfredo. I got a pork tenderloin out yesterday but I don't think it'll be ready to cook until tomorrow.

We had tofu stir fry with rice noodles for supper. For sauces, we had a couple of San-J selections (Thai peanut and Mongolian Beef Sauces) and Tree of Life wheat free tamari sauce. 

 

I pretty much used whatever seasonal vegetables that I had on hand. It's a great way to use up summer squash and zucchini.

I canned a couple dozen jars of pasta sauce a few weeks back...making these hot nights easy.

Diced up some baked boneless chicken breast to toss in a jar of sauce this morning.

Men will boil some pasta and toss a salad...I'm going with zu-noodles as my farm share basket has some pretty summer squashes.

I forgot I had some hamburger in the fridge. My husband is going to make his own dinner tonight and I think I'll make some spaghetti and meatballs. I slept way too much today and I can't wait to go get tested tomorrow for anemia so I can just get my stupid infusions and get on with my life!

 

I saw some research this evening that showed that if they injected serum antibodies from CRPS patients into mice, the mice got CRPS. This is awesome because it is more evidence that it's an AI condition. Which means they can hopefully research more effective treatments. Yay! :D

That is incredibly interesting to hear!  It is really nice when they make breakthroughs like that, helps to direct research.

Use your inside voice, young lady! ^_^ 

 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your unicorn, honey...forgot to say that earlier!!

 

I use Against the Grain baguettes. They are in the freezer section. Bring to room temp, slice on a bit of a diagonal to give you a decent hors d'oeurve

size. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, then brush the slices with  EVOO, sprinkle with garlic powder, put under broiler for 1-2 minutes...watch them, so they don't burn. I only do one side and it works great. 

 

Once they cool off, you're good to go.

Just curious.  I have used the Schar and even the Glutino bagel chips.  After having garlic cheese bread at Beau Jos made on Udis baguette - I might try those, too.  We have had the Against the Grain, too.

 

We like to split the loaf, get that flavored cream cheese like Rondel or Alouette, spread it on, wrap in foil and heat it up.  Cutting is a bit messy but sooooo yummy.

And then there is this one of the Celiac unicorn finding out that rainbows over the wheat harvest during a high wind (and really, there is always a high  wind over a wheat field) are not gluten free.

You're so twisted. :P I was looking at your little chubby headed unicorn last night and thinking about how adorable he is. Makes me smile. :D I much prefer the happy purple unicorn to the vomiting rainbows one. My husband is gonna kill me for this... but after Easter when all the baskets were half off they had one with a little chubby alicorn in it. (An alicorn is a unicorn with wings for anyone who didn't know.) Anyway, my husband thought it was adorable so he got it. For himself. It's on his desk with his Blizzard (the game company) stuffed animals.

    • Apologies for my over-reaction.  As the shampoo exposure was only for a couple week or so, I doubt any lab tests would have indicated exposure. Unfortunately, since I didn't have the antibodies, I can only rely on my symptoms to tell me if I've been exposed. I'm fortunate enough that eliminating gluten (and dairy) from my diet completely fixed my problems. I have had no lingering systems, and now that I have been gluten free for a while, when I do get gluten I have a very clear reaction (and a distinct reaction to dairy) that follows a fairly predictable timeline. This has accidentally been tested a couple of times. For example, early on before I was better at reading labels I grabbed some cookies at the grocery store that I thought were gluten free (the company produces both a normal and gluten-free version, and this was before I learned to avoid shared facilities). I had grabbed the wrong bag but I didn't figure it out until about a week of feeling crappy had passed and I went searching for a culprit. Things like this have happened a couple of times, where I accidentally did a blinded experiment on myself. The symptoms are consistent, and resolve once I remove the offending item. So when I recognized my symptoms as the result of gluten, I went looking for a culprit and I found the shampoo and conditioner. I removed them and then I got better.  My problems are largely systemic. I wouldn't be surprised if I don't actually have celiac but some other immune mediated reaction that hasn't been defined, but calling it celiac is the best way to get people to take my needs seriously (which I'm sure you understand). Unfortunately, my problems don't seem to fit into any particular diagnostic bucket, so I've learned not to rely on the official medical terms and just go with what works. I'm lucky to have had doctors who think the same way, else they might have told me that I didn't need to go gluten free once I failed to show clear-cut celiac. Maybe I'm pre-celiac, maybe it's the much maligned NCGS, or it's all related to leaky gut (I am eagerly awaiting the FDA approval of larazotide so that I can get a doctor to give me some, I think it might do me a lot of good). All I know is that when I went gluten and dairy free it literally changed my life.  In general it seems that gluten exposure causes a generalized inflammatory response. I get some inflammation in my gut that manifests as reflux, acid indigestion (what I call "fake hunger"), and a little bit of urgency and unpredictability with regards to bathroom needs, but if that were the only problem, I think I could live with it. I also get headaches, brain fog, my depression/anxiety gets triggered to a scary degree, arthritis, muscle aches, and then, the clincher, muscles spasms in my upper back and neck that have been known to lay me out for a couple of days while I wait for the muscle relaxants to help me heal. The muscle spasms, arthritis and brain fog are the most recognizable and are usually what cue me in that I got glutened, especially the spasms.  Again, sorry for being oversensitive. I should have known better, since this is such a supportive community.  
    • I appreciate your point. However, constancy of my celiac symptoms indicates that I have had the disease for at least three years - while I have never experienced any food allergies in that time. Although I will keep an eye on any emerging allergies, I believe my current fatigue is due to nutritional deficiency, because the only exogenous change in my life style has been the transition to gluten free diet.   Yes, I certainly need to keep a food diary. Thanks again for the advice.
    • In many cases no.....I consume heavy magnesium foods like pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs etc....and still need 2-3x the dose of magnesium recommendations. Going on more of what poster boy said. You dose magnesium to tolerance with citrate like Natural Vitality Calm you start off small partial doses and slow ramp up....it can hit you hard causing gas and D if you go to quick into it. You dose citrate to tolerance meaning you slowly up your dose til you get loose stools...then back down a bit. You should have vivid dreams with a good dosing....also if it becomes to harsh or you can not handle citrate there is Doctors Best Glycinate...it does not have the gut effects at all...but the dreams and how much it makes you relax is more more felt.   ...with this disease you can have a food intolerance or allergy crop up out of the blue....like no where. You have a autoimmune disease....celiac it effects your immune system and can make it really wonky. Like it seems to always be on guard like a sleep deprived sentry on stim packs...jumps at everything and shoots it. If you get sick, eat something odd or harsh you system might red flag it as a issue for awhile and go bonkers....keep a food diary and try a food rotation in the mean time...OH as a example to this, I was fine with chia seeds last week...I got a cold over the weekend....same bag, same brand same way....withing 30mins I now puke if I eat them...new intolerance.....I also am finding jalapenos/paprika making it sleepy tired....so I am removing them both for a few months from my diet and changing to other sources for fats/fiber and vitamin A/C til I get over that issue.....these things just happen. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.  
    • Thank you Gail for your response. Of course one should be mindful of the possibility of food allergies but I don't think that's the case with my current situations. Save for gluten containing product, everything I eat now I used to eat before with no reaction whatsoever. I think my issue is more likely to be deficiency in minerals and such.
