My husband was at the Colt's game last night and I had a birthday dinner to go to, so I made a spur of the moment soup in my crockpot:

Beef Stew Soup

1 Container Swanson's Beef Broth or Stock

2-3 lbs. stew beef

3 large Irish potatoes, diced

6-8 carrots, cut in thirds

Salt, pepper, bayleaf

1 small onion, diced

4 bulbs of garlic, 2 diced, 2 cooked whole

I cooked the soup on high for four hours, while I was out, in my crockpot and then cooked it on low for another hour until tender.

We had it for lunch today with a dollop of sour cream. Very filling and delicious.

Tonight I'm planning chicken fried rice and egg drop soup.

Could you post a recipe for the egg drop soup, please? Or PM me if nobody else is interested ...

Sure! It's really easy, I don't really follow a recipe but I can tell you how to make it:

1 can (or about two cups) chicken broth

1-2 eggs

1 green onion, chopped

gluten-free Soy sauce (optional, I used Coconut Secrets instead, but I have left out the soy in the past)

Heat broth to a slow rolling boil. Beat eggs in a bowl with a wisk or fork. When broth is boiling stir in a circular motion and slowing pour egg into boiling broth while stiring. Fast stiring and slow pouring will lead to thin egg ribbons, slow stiring or fast pouring will lead to thick egg pieces. Add chopped green onion and remove from heat. Serve hot. Add gluten-free soy sauce to flavor if desired. If using homemade broth you may need to add extra salt. My DH likes to add hot sauce to his to make it spicy. You could also add chopped veggies of any kind like carrots if you want, just don't boil too long after you add the eggs or they get overcooked. If done right, the eggs are thin, light and almost like noodles. I often make this when I'm sick because it's an easy chicken soup.

Just found blue cod on sale at the supermarket, so fresh, so delish. only $5.00 - all we had with it was lemon (for DH), asparagus, and baked yam. It was wonderful. Could eat that every night if it wasn't normally so damnably expensive. They must be expecting a big shipment in on Friday :o Mebee I'll go back??

Bacon...YUM! Sounds good to me. laugh.gif For two days I've been running around like a crazy woman with appointments and errands. And it's been unusually cold with 30 mph winds. Came home feeling like a popsicle! After getting off to a good start earlier in the week with a chicken stir-fry/rice and pot roast, last night I actually had peanut butter on a Lundberg brown rice cake and two pieces of banana bread. Nary a veggie in sight. tongue.gif Good thing I live alone and don't have to worry about feeding a family...they just wouldn't get it and I needn't be concerned with setting a good example!!!

I haven't tried popcorn (my absolute favorite snack food) for about six months...the last time I had it, I liked it but it didn't like me. ph34r.gif But I'd only been gluten-free for a couple of months then. I used to occasionally have a bowl of cereal for dinner...not often but hey, it was food and it was real. biggrin.gif

When I got home yesterday, I was absolutely starved so did have a ham sandwich on Udi's bread about 3 p.m. so that took the edge off my ravenous hunger.

Took me a couple years to be able to eat popcorn again--so there's hope :D

Package of ground turkey breast, cooked on stovetop, added 2 cans of tomatoes, let heat through thoroughly. It was actually pretty healthy until I melted the big chunk of cheese into my bowl of it. :P

    • http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamadermatology/fullarticle/423327 Found this article that suggests a link between PD and the Mthfr genes (which are also associated with Celiac Disease).    Taking methyl forms of B9 (methylfolate) and B12 (methylcobalamine), and B6 (P5P), makes these vitamins more usable to people with the Mthfr genes.   Celiac Disease causes malabsorption.  Celiacs on a gluten free diet may develop deficiencies.  (Gluten free breads and cookies are not required to be fortified with vitamins like their gluten containing counterparts.)   Perhaps adding these vitamins would be beneficial. Hope this helps.
    • I'm not sure that this is the original study I looked at, but it does describe the different antibodies found circulating in the blood that is specific to DH (anti-eTG, which is analogous to anti-tTG in regular celiac disease). At any rate, it seems that they can test for it, but many labs do not have the ability to do so or doctors do not know to ask for this lab test. So I suppose if one was very interested in a diagnosis, one could go to a research centre where they would likely have the ability to test for its presence! https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4435051/
    • Welcome.  You might consider staying on gluten and seeing your doctor for a celiac blood test panel.  You need to be consuming gluten for several  weeks prior to the blood draw otherwise the tests can be invalid.   You could have celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity.   The only way to know for sure is to get tested as there are over 200 symptoms attributed to celiac disease and those can overlap with other illnesses.   Best to rule out celiac disease.  Learn more:  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Celiac disease symptoms are like a chameleon -- always changing.    
    • Yes, you can get diagnosed with biopsies prior to having a celiac (antibodies) blood panel.  That what they did BEFORE the blood test was invented.   Thyroid issues are common with many who have celiac disease.  It was prudent that your doctor ordered these tests.   The lipase test is linked to the pancreas.  Again, a poor result can be attributed to celiac disease.  
    • So where oh where to begin. I read all and everyone's post because as a community I think it's extra special when people have others they can vent to that understand how each other are feeling. Ok enough with the gushy stuff. Down to business. I have been gluten free for almost 9 months October 4 (im counting)  the relief I have felt is diarhea is gone. Another good positive symptom and sign is I'm 5'7 so at diagnosis I withered away to about 108 (very sickly all muscle was gone) I now I got weighed in at 122 today! And I'm literally eating whole foods some extra food maybe some chips here and there but I've always been a chip person. I haven't weighed 122 since I was 18 (Im 29) so that part had me excited. Except for the last few weeks my fatigue has come back with a vengeance. I don't know where it's coming from, i got my thyroid (just tsh until I see endo at end of month when she will check all thyroid hormones) and it was at 3.45 I'm not on thyroid hormone so I wonder if this is causing my fatigue and fast weight gain since I started gaining weight pretty fast (even though I needed it, it happened all at once over a month) I'm also having severe hair loss. I had my iron checked and it's all went up except my ferritin which was at 15 last week's blood test. My symptoms consist mainly of hair loss, shortness of breath, dizziness especially from sitting to standing, really bad raynauds attacks everyday all day (on feet) neck pain (severe) now new symptom started about 4 months ago the back of my shoulder bone to the elbow and clavicle bone are all hurting so so bad. I don't expect anyone to know what's wrong with me I just felt like venting. Also I was prescribed neomycin and xifaxin because a hydrogen breath test showed high methane in my test but normal level hydrogen so the actual SIBO test was negative but she was confused about the high methane and said I may benefit from the antibiotics. I still am waiting to get them from my insurance. I'm a seronegative celiac with positive biopsy. We've already gone through and rules out other scenarios for the villous blunting and IEL's. Any info would help me. I feel so weak some days. And all doctors want to say it's anxiety. I've heard that for far too long I actually went to a hematologist today because I've been freaked out the last year my wbc have been at 3.3 which my lab range is 4.5 and above to whatever the higher limit is. He told me to do a bone marrow biopsy because of the pain in my shoulder and arm and my "low wbc "which he wasn't even concerned about. Is this necessary right now or am I just spooking myself. Is it common to have low wbc. Could it be the extra methane in my breath or whatever. Any help would be great. Listen I have friends and family but they won't listen to all this. They think most of this is in my head.
