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.

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

    • I've given up on all those processed gluten free foods out there and have stuck to eating a whole foods diet. I have noticed such a huge, massive, difference in my energy, mood, sleep, and well being. Needless to say I've been doing a lot of cooking but have been leaving sugar out because I don't know the safe brands. I tried using Stevia in the raw but keep getting horrible headaches when I use it. I saw that the first ingredient is Dextrose so it's not "raw". Anyway, what are the safe brands out there as far as white and brown sugars go? I made saurkraut and pork chops last night and would've loved potato salad. Also while I'm on here, what about Mayo? What's safe? I saw Sir Kennsington was gluten-free Certified.
    • My Celiac disease presented as yours did: anemia, unexplained weight loss, aches and pains (due to vitamin and mineral deficiencies from malabsorption), the abdominal burning (whether I ate or not), decreased appetite, itching, the works. Plus I had a mood like a gorgon, which wasn't helped by my friends telling me "how slender!" I looked. My bones were basically all that was holding me up. I've had the blood panel too, which has proven very informative. I had a follow-up celiac panel after I'd been on the diet for over a year and it showed the diet was working. I also went through an anger phase because my (now former) doc (who is also my dad's doc and knows he has celiac AND knows we're related...) just wrote me a prescription for antidepressants, whereas I might have been spared years of feeling crappy (my late 30s!) if he'd just ordered a CBC and found the anemia. I'm a woman and I feel like sometimes whatever you say to a doc (even female docs!), all they hear is "psych symptoms". It really made me mad. But I've always pooped like a champ so I didn't exactly have typical symptoms either. Then I thought about how long it took my poor dad to get diagnosed (decades), which was before there was all this awareness, and I feel grateful for the fact that it took comparatively far less time for me to get my diagnosis and start feeling better. Don't worry about not finding stuff you like to eat: since gluten-free has become "the new thing" there are so many choices and the price has come down considerably since my dad got diagnosed (over 12 years ago). If your doc confirms celiac, then you'll be back on the (albeit gluten-free!) mac and cheese in no time, this time actually absorbing some of the mac and cheesy goodness! Feel better and take care.
    • If you are worried about your glycemic levels, then you should test with a glucose meter.  I have diabetes (insulin resistance/TD2) and rice and potatoes spike me like crazy!  I might as well consume ice cream!  But if you do not have diabetes, no worries!  
    • Thanks to both of you for your replies. I wasn't so much concerned about the arsenic (although that is an additional consideration) as I was about the glycemic level. I don't bake enough to make blending my own flour blends worthwhile, so I will definitely check out the links you provided, Ennis_TX. So far I'm tolerating oats and my gastro doc says I can keep eating them as long as they're certified GT. I just looked at some crackers I have for hummus and noticed their main ingredient is rice. I should probably just eat the hummus with veggies!
    • I agree with Ennis.  It sounds like she is getting access to gluten way too often to expect healing.   I had some pretty severe patches of intestinal damage when I was diagnosed.  Anemia was my symptom and I had no gut issues then.  So, just because she injests gluten and does not have some major symptoms right away, does not mean she is not building up antibodies.  Have those antibodies been re-tested to see if they are in the normal ranges now?  Missing patches of damage in the small intestine is possible.  Heck, the small intestine is the size of a tennis court (goggle it).  So easy to miss.  Also, your GI should have taken more than four samples?  How many were taken? (Forgive me, if I have forgotten.) Cross contamination in your house is real, especially if you have kids in the house.  Member Jebby, a preemie doctor who has celiac disease, was not getting well.  Turns out her four small and adorable children were glutening her.  She made her house gluten free.  Just something to consider.   You mentioned she had access to gluten at a party.  So, does that mean she caves in and eats it?  She needs to become a stakeholder in this diet.
