I usually eat a small breakfast, a big lunch and then a small supper. I cooked that turkey and will be having that for lunch today. And yesterday, one day only, the store had russet potatoes on sale - a five pound bag for FORTY-EIGHT CENTS, limit 2 per customer, so I'll be having a baked potato with my turkey.

 

But for breakfast (and supper later) I have grilled cheese. I got the Schar multi-grain bread by mistake. (I had wanted to get the white to make stuffing with.) And I got the big block of American cheese. I'll tell you, that Schar multi-grain makes the best darned grilled cheese I may have ever had.

Bart...I just love your enthusiasm for the foods that you've gotten back! It gives me hope that someday I will be able to eat more things too. Thanks for sharing it!

Thanks! I learned patience and self-control while I was so restricted so in the long run it was good for me. And now I just want to celebrate.

 

It'll happen for you too. And when it does you'd better watch your figure! :lol: I thought giving up ice cream would make me lose weight but with all the ymmy things I've gotten back I fear I'm eating more now than I ever did! :ph34r:

So, I got a box of glutino corn bread stuffing. Could I substitute the butter it asks for with olive oil?

Turkey sandwiches on millet rolls, left-over scalloped potatoes & carrot sticks & chocolate and apple cinnamon cupcakes.

No. They are from a gluten-free bakery close to my house.

Last night I made Spaghetti with Broccoli.  Today will be beef stir fry with brown rice.  

 

I put in a huge order for canyon bakehouse bread... if you order $50+ it is free shipping with code "canyonfreeship".  The email I got says it is good through Friday.  So excited to have a good stockup of bread!  I will probably eat it all too quickly... lol.

Cold here, too!  I put some beans on the crock pot, black beans with bacon and I will probably fry up some sweet potatoes to go with it.

I made white pork chili from Danielle Walker's book Meals Made Simple, and a Schar's baguette.  Both were really good!

COD!! The healthfood store had wild caught Alaskan cod for a good price. I'll be broiling it with butter and bread crumbs. I'll probably have a baked potato and some broccoli with it. And I WILL be sharing with the cat. (She loves cod almost as much as I do.)

Went to Jimmy John's last night.  I checked and double checked with them to make sure everything was gluten-free--or what I could have was gluten-free.  They called their manager to "verify" too....sicker than a dog today.  Did some more research, their roast beef is NOT gluten-free....I will be stopping by to make sure they don't do that to someone else.  I am on the road traveling and it was pretty much my only option.  I have some food with me but I did plan to eat out last night so I did not bring "dinner" food.....ugggggg.

We had beef stew last night, too!  With some experimental "pop-over" rolls.  The rolls were very "eggy"- not really what we wanted but OK.

 

Sunday night we had the best green chili pork stew!  Cooked the pork for 4 hours in the oven, then made the stew!  It was fabulous!  We are having more tonight!

Anyone have any ideas for a gluten-free substitute for Guinness Beer?  I have an Irish Stew recipe that we like to make in the winter but it needs Guinness or a dark beer.

Guinness is something I still miss. I don't know of any gluten-free beer that is even close.

I think the overall flavor would be fine even if it's not drinkable as a solo delight :D.  Probably can't duplicate it gluten-free though since it's such a gluten heavy drink.

Sadly just had gluten free chicken strips and oreida fries for dinner tonight. We ran out of Thanksgiving leftovers and have yet to venture into the grocery stores to replenish.

    • I just saw your profile says thalassemia. My doc blames part of the microcytic anemia on thalassemia trait even though all my thalassemia gene tests have come back negative (and I don't have the right ethnic background). In a way I am hoping it is a FODMAP (carbohydrate) sensitivity instead of a gluten allergy because at least with the FODMAP you just have to stay low FODMAP and don't have to worry about crumbs and gluten cross-contamination like with celiac. I will check back in in 6 months once I see whether there are specific foods I can't eat or if it really does come down to gluten  Thanks for your support!!
    • Good for you for trying to manage your health.  My only suggestion would be to find another doctor.  Obviously, he does not even follow standard recommendations for screening.  I would worry that he overlooks other things too.  It never hurts to get a second opinion.  Second opinions have saved my family from unwanted surgeries and incorrect treatment.   The IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Test, in the case of celiac disease testing,  is a control test.  If he had ordered it, you would have known if the results are valid or not.  Now you are left in diagnostic Limboland.  Again, my TTG was negative it has never been positive even in follow-up testing.   You can go gluten free for life.  My hubby did that 17 years ago some 12 years prior to my diagnosis (per the advice of his GP and my my allergist).  But he will be the first to tell you that I get way more support from family, friends and medical. I wish you well!  
    • Okay so I had a peanut butter milkshake from steak n shake last night. I'm nearly positive that every thing else I've had recently has been gluten free. I have been feeling like my stomach is acting up a bit lately, but after this milkshake it is so much more intense. I considered maybe I'm sensitive to dairy too, but in the last few days  I've had plenty of dairy that didn't make me react  like this. The steak n shake website didn't list any real specifics on ingredients for milkshakes. I read in other forums that some shakes use a malt mix or syrup ( which I didn't see mentioned on the site), but it is corn based. I called the my local steak n shake and the guy said he is "pretty sure" it's corn based.  I called the customer service line and they couldn't tell me if it was gluten free or not. I found ONE listing on a website that said all shakes were gluten free expect peanut butter and one other flavor. I know this seems like a lot for one shake, but I'm so tired of not knowing what makes me sick. Has anyone else had an experience with this or has anymore knowledge about steak and shakes products?
    • So my tTG-IgA result came back negative. Doc did not do the total IgA so I could be in the 2% false negative. However my ferritin continues to fall (at 25 now so getting borderline to need another iron infusion, 6 months ago it was 50) and reflux was keeping me up at night so after the blood test I went on a gluten free and low FODMAP diet. 6 days later my reflux is gone! I had no idea it could work that quickly. I still feel like there is a lump in my esophagus and have a bit of difficulty swallowing (think I still have irritation in that area) but no more acid and regurgitation! Also have not had a single episode of gas or urgency or days with 8 BMs.  It has only been 6 days so maybe I am just having a good spell but am going to continue gluten free and low FODMAP for a month and then see if there are any FODMAP foods I can eat (but not gluten unless my doc decides I should have a biopsy) (I miss pears and apples). I guess the real test is to see if my ferritin levels start to go up-testing again in 6 months. The diet is very restrictive but worth it if it gets rid of the reflux and other symptoms. BTW post-menopausal (and before that I had an IUD for 10 years TMI) so no periods to blame for chronic microcytic/hypochromic anemia. Doc says "that's normal for you, you just don't absorb iron very well".
    • Did you know that there are so many issues and questions surrounding celiac disease that even doctors who specialize in it find that the scientific data changes every six months, and this includes research data, new diagnostic and testing recommendations, and its connections to other diseases and conditions. In fact, many of us who think we have "arrived" and know it all might actually need a refresher course on the disease. View the full article
