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?

Lets see.  Haven't posted in a while, so some catch-up

 

We made some great pizzas on pizza crusts from a local bakery - cheese & feta; pepperoni, jalapeno & pineapple; red onions and bacon; and a BBQ chicken - Gates BBQ sauce for the sauce, grilled chicken, red onions, cheddar & moz.

 

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

 

Burgers and foil packet red potatoes & more cupcakes

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.

    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
    • I started a topic a couple of weeks ago about my type 1 daughter with a ttg iga result of greater than 100 being suspected of having celiac.  She saw the GI and has her biopsy scheduled for this coming Tuesday.  Seems like there is no doubt that it will show celiac but we will know soon.  I have started thinking about some of the symptoms that I have had and before my house goes gluten-free would like to test and make sure that I am not testing positive for celiac as well.  My symptoms are always tired--easy to write off--been really constipated and bloated which is a relatively new phenomenon for me.  Sometimes I get tingling in my legs/feet but that hasn't been too bothersome.   My primary care doctor tested my ttg igg which was 3 (<6 is negative) and ttg iga was <1 (<or =4 positive)  It doesn't look like he ran an immunoglobulin a test to verify that I am not immunoglobulin a deficient   He ran a cbc that showed that my MCH was high (34) indicating that I could be deficient in B12 or folic acid--I rarely drink so I don't think that could have skewed the results.  Could this be indicative of anything?  My doctor just said all my labs are good.  Do you think this rules out celiac for me or would you try to do further clarification/testing? Thanks!
    • Hi all, my TTG/iga came back. It was 4. 0-3 is considered negative and 4-10 is weak positive.  In January it was 12 and before my endoscopy in October it was >100. it plummeted those first 2 months but seems to be taking more time to get lower. Should I feel optimistic? I guess 4 seems ok. 
    • Yes, i was 230 lbs upon diagnosis. My crp had been high for over 10 yrs. The first year i lost 70 lbs of water. Then i started to realize my continued irratic gi problems were more intollernces from processed foods as well as things like dairy and legumes. I went on an elimination diet and lost 20 more lbs. I finally stopped at 135 lbs which was still healthy weight, not that i had seen it until high school. Check your folic acid. Just found i am positive for one of the MTHFR genes meaning i cannot convert folic acid, which i lost stopping processed food, so i take 3000 mcg l-methylfolate daily. This is improtant because the body needs to detox all the gluten and chemicals i stored undiagnosed so when that was blocked i developed terible nerve pain. I am 10 years clear and things are amazingly better. I am finally adding in foods i could not tolerate like avacados and turkey. I had a pill cam and colonoscapy this year and there is no visible damage like there was 10 years ago. I think it was my clean diet and time to heal. I should have had a full vitamin panel when diagnosed but had no follow up advice except stop gluten. Am on d3, k2 as well. L glutamine helped heal my gi and d ribose gave me some blood sugar stability. I get these at amazon, NOW brand. My d3 is blue bonnet since its fish not lanolin. My k2 and l methyfolate is life extension. It is a long journey but it has become normal to live gluten free and my diet is so much healthier i think my longevity is increased because i have to eat this way. Plus the arterial sclerosis i had 10 yrs ago is gone, cleaned by my body and food. Well wishes.
